Perennials

This is a basic list of what we have for sale at the nursery.

We have many more plants, but because their stock is limited, they aren't listed here.

Things are constantly changing and we will do our best to keep this page current!

We check all of our plants every day - which takes time - and we are not always quick on the computer.

There are times when a plant gets sold out and we have to rebuild our stock.

Sometimes we have young plants that are not mature enough to sell.

If there's something you really want, please send an email and we will see how we can help you.

Prices reflect how long it takes a plant to mature.

We sell healthy plants at blossoming age, often with more than one plant to a pot.

Younger plants are mentioned in the description.

3"- 4” pots are $5- $6

6”pots are $7- $8

½ gallon are $7- 8 -9

1 gallon pots are generally $10- $12 except for specialty items (plants that are difficult to grow
