We Are Plant People - Going Strong Since 1979
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
|Heaths and Heathers arrived this week - in both 1 gallon and quart size pots. Heaths 'Mediterranean Pink', 'Mediterranean White' and 'Kramer's Red' are in full gorgeous bloom, and we have a colorful selection of both heaths and heathers with outstanding foliage color.|
Heaths & Heathers are evergreen, loved by pollinators, and resistant to deer. Plant in full sun in sandy, acidic, well-drained soil for best flowering.
Heaths have needle-like evergreen foliage and most bloom over the winter/early spring. Heathers usually bloom from mid-summer to fall. Their evergreen foliage brings interesting texture to the garden along with great color.
Annual pruning will keep the plant looking full and robust. Prune heaths (Erica) immediately after flowering. Prune heathers (Calluna) in early spring.

From Wilma: This poem says it well!
March you’re like a fickle friend
Always changing – hard to mind you,
Sleet and frost and snow you send,
Never know just how to find you.
But your ways are not all bad,
Violets bloom and robins sing,
In the air is something glad
That’s prophetic of the spring.
- From “Pastime Poems” by Homer Casto, Weaverville, NC 1946
From balmy temperatures to lows in the 20’s, March is living up to her fickle reputation. In addition to these temperature ranges there have been gusty winds, snow flurries, rainstorms, and spring like days with flowering trees and shrubs. We have found it is best to take March one day at a time!
Spring is definitely in the air at the Garden Center with colorful pansies, inspiring tropicals, veggie transplants, new tree and shrub shipments arriving almost daily, perennials galore, gardening supplies, and much more. I was just at our Production Farm and the greenhouses are filling with veggie plants, hanging baskets, geraniums, and other goodies. Thanks to a great staff at both places!
Wilma R. Penland is the co-founder of Reems Creek Nursery and our horticultural mentor.
