Something old something new plants and products we want to share with you. Plants you know, or haven’t seen, and then the others in between.
We’ll bring you information on plants and products that we are featuring each month. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
May Featured Plants and Products:
Hot, hot, hot, tropicals are ready to face the sun!
Bougainvillea, Ixora, Hibiscus, Mandevilla, Dipladenia, so many wonderful tropicals have been hitting the nurseries and we are practically blinded by their beauty. These plants crave the heat and sunshine, so stock up for gorgeous blooms all through summer!
(Bougainvillea is pretty much unparalleled with its neon-hued blooms.)
(Vining, twining, Mandeville beauty.)
Perennials are showing their stuff!
Lantana, Salvia, Sages, Blue Mist, Plumbago, Turk’s Cap and more are welcoming in the warmer days that prompt their blooms. It’s a great time to take a leisurely walk around the nurseries and absorb all the perennial color that is to be seen! Remember, the annuals can be irresistible and should definitely be admired and chosen, but perennials will offer blooms long after the annuals have passed their season.
(Brilliant blue, sun or shade? Sign us up for some perennial Plumbago!)
(Who says perennials are only brilliant in the sun…..not Turk’s Cap! Easy, native, and amazing. You want one of these in your landscape.)
