August 28, 2015
The Igloo mums are finally ready and now adorn the sales area in front of the store so that now, the age-old question about mums of "will they come back next spring?", can be answered with a resounding yes! The Igloos are actually a Dendrantemum and not a Chrysanthemum that gives them  ironclad hardiness.  The other benefit of the Igloo mums is that they bloom somewhat in late June and July and then can be cut back to display a full bloom in early September.  Next Friday at 7:30 am is the start of our annual 50% off sale of trees, shrubs, roses and perennials Garden Club Members only for the first 4 days after which the sale is open to everyone.  Again, just a reminder that no notice of this sale will be via a postcard so that our mass e-mails will notify most Garden Club Members of the sale as we do now our other specials.  Read entire blog entry...

  We LOVE Sedum!  Why?  Sedum is so very easy to grow, available in a multitude of foliage and bloom colors and has all season interest.  This September we are featuring 6 new varieties from SunSparkler® Sedums:


SunSparkler® Blue Elf
Grows to a very tight and ultra-compact height of only 3″ tall and will reach 15″ wide within one year. Plants are smothered with hundreds of dark-pink flowers atop steel blue tufted rosettes in late summer as shown in the picture to the left..


SunSparkler® Dazzleberry
This exciting new groundcover Sedum only grows to 8″ tall x 18″ wide, but has HUGE 9″ flowerheads held above disease-free dusky-blue foliage


SunSparkler® Firecracker
In mid to late August, these cherry-red clumps of shiny leaves are topped with large 4″ medium-pink flowerheads. These flowers remain colorful for nearly 4 weeks! Plants form 6″ tall and 18″ wide mounds of colorful foliage which combines superbly with other drought-proof perennials.



SunSparkler® Jade Tuffett
Selected for its 14″ tall ultra-compact habit and unique narrow leaves which are smothered in large trusses of dark pink flowers in late summer. In spring, narrow, shiny-green leaves emerge and contrast beautifully against bright cherry-red stems. The foliage is almost reminiscent of Boxwood.


SunSparkler® Lime Twister
Based of it's parent Lime Zinger, this new varietaged sport features stunning cream-colored edges on every leaf.  Flowers bloom in the same rose-pink shade as it's parent.


  SunSparkler®Lime Zinger
Lime-green foliage is surrounded by a cherry-red picotee edge. Its compact 4″ tall x 18″ wide growth habit makes it a superb new groundcover Sedum!
