Pretty Plants - for a garden paradise
The weather has been perfect for gardening...nice and cool with bits and pieces of rain. We hope you're enjoying a constant parade of blooms!
10% Off Perennials!
Shop our fabulous selection of Sun and Shade perennials, Toe Ticklers, pollinator plants, native plants, and perennial grasses*. We are celebrating Perennial Gardening Month and Pollinator Month with this special sale.
Create something beautiful that can be enjoyed every year! Consult our Garden Guide Perennial Bloom Time to plant for blooms all season long.
June is the perfect time to add more perennials to an existing perennial bed, start a brand new bed, or plant flowers and host plants for pollinators. Strive to push the window on both ends of the season (early and late blooming) and everywhere in between. Group 3 to 5 of the same perennial plants together for a showier, more satisfying garden. For maximum enjoyment locate your flower beds where you can see them from inside the house too.
Flowers are food for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. We have some great pollinator gardening resources on our website here. Native plants are especially nourishing to native pollinator populations. Our staff are happy to help you find what you are looking for.
*Sale excludes mini-conifers, vines, butterfly bushes & shrubs.
Beautiful new shipments!

|Fireflies Are Out . . . Magic Is Real!|
|It’s always exciting when the fireflies show up. Have you spotted any yet? Their presence adds undeniable magic to summer evenings. Fireflies are a type of beetle, but they don’t sting or bite. Generally, they live about two months in the wild with mating as their main focus.|
Unfortunately, like many insect populations, fireflies are declining. Scientists have not been studying this long enough to have definitive answers, but ”signs point to human development [habitat loss], light pollution, and toxic chemicals as likely culprits behind the dwindling of firefly populations.”
Options for helping fireflies: Besides just enjoying them, leave your grass longer, leave old logs and leaf litter on the ground in portions of your yard for larva habitat, turn outdoor lights off at night or use motion sensors, and avoid pesticides. BTW...fireflies LOVE water features, even a moist depression in the soil!
According to Helen Yoest in Triangle Gardening, It is ok to catch fireflies in a jar for a day or two. Put a moist paper towel in the bottom of the jar and a little clump of grass. After a day or two release them so they can mate and make more lightning bugs!
