|40% Off Daub's Frosted Juniper!|
Daub's Frosted Juniper makes a great addition to any garden. This compact evergreen is especially prized for its two-toned blue green foliage that is "frosted' with yellow tips. Tanya loves it because of its wide low-growing nature, and the texture/bright color it adds to the garden.
Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Grows 1-2' tall x 3-6' wide. Zone 4-9.
$35.99 3 gallon size, while supplies last. Regularly $59.99
|Talking About 'Jeana' Phlox|
|We especially love ‘Jeana’ Phlox and you’ll find it planted in our Pollinator Garden behind the Garden Shop. |
According to the Mt. Cuba Center, “Phlox paniculata ‘Jeana’ is, without a doubt, the best-performing phlox from the [our] trial.” Jeana is especially resistant to powdery mildew, and is fragrant, and long blooming. The individual flowers (pips) are smaller than the other Tall Phlox that we carry, but in the above trial, “Jeana’ attracted more butterflies than any other garden phlox in the entire trial”.
We just received a pretty selection of other Phlox paniculatas (AKA tall phlox or garden phlox) in a few different colors. We love all of them!
Tall Phlox is native to Western North Carolina and very appealing to pollinators – plus it is gorgeous in the garden!
|Monarch Butterflies Listed Endangered|
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature has declared the Monarch Butterfly endangered - estimating that “the population of monarch butterflies in North America has declined between 22% and 72% over 10 years...” Nick Haddad, researcher from Michigan State University, “estimates that the population of monarch butterflies he studies in the eastern United States has declined between 85% and 95% since the 1990s.”
Doug Tallamy, professor at the University of Delaware, suggests that gardeners CAN help tremendously by limiting pesticides, planting milkweed for monarch caterpillars, and planting asters and goldenrod to provide food for Monarch butterflies during their fall migration.
Monarch Caterpillar Feeding on Butterfly Weed
Reems Creek Nursery currently has two native milkweeds in stock – Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa) and Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) - plus asters and goldenrod.
