We recieved our first shipment of what some call 'Dinner Plate Hibiscus'.

These stunning plants have blooms that range in size from 6" - 8" across in bold and exciting colors. Each plant is loaded with buds to give lots of color this summer.

They prefer full sun to part sun!

Selection includes:
Ballet Slippers
Berry Awesome
Mocha Moon
Midnight Marvel
Airbrush Effect
and several others!

Many of the best plants for shade prefer lots of water, like ferns and hydrangeas. Fear not! If you have a shady area that is drying out this summer, Soft Caress Mahonia (left), Cast Iron (middle), Goshiki False Holly (right) and all thrive in shady locations. Once established, these plants can survive long periods of drought.

These plants feature such different textures that they stand out beautifully when planted on their own but also make a beautiful combo when planted together. Even if you don't have a trouble spot, drought-tolerant plants are a great way to save water in your landscape.

We just picked up a full truckload of native plants grown right here in the Florida Panhandle.

Some of the our favorites include:

3 Types of Native Milkweed
(pictured above)
Joe Pye Weed
Blazing Star
Black-eyed Susan
Passion Vine
Native Purple Coneflower

Many of these varieties are difficult to find. Shop early while supply is best. While supplies last.

Along with our dozens of other great native plants, part of this new shipment includes native tree & vine favorites like:

Native Ashe Magnolia
3 Forms of Native Honeysuckle (including yellow)
Blooming Trumpet Vine
Native Fringe Tree
(pictured above)
River Birch

Come in and explore all of the different types and varieties we have to help build your landscape with native plants.
Over the course of this month, we'll be exploring the products and purpose of the greenhouse. While indoor and houseplants do add beauty, they can also aid in our mental, emotional and physical well-being.

If you haven't started exploring with houseplants, now is the time!

If you're looking for a houseplant that won't outgrow a certain pot or spot in your house for a long while, the Zamioculcas zamiifolia (ZZ) plant is the right one for you. Topping out at about 2 feet wide by 2 feet tall, they won't overtake a concentrated area.

The ZZ plant thrives on neglect. Similar to a succulent, water only when fully dry.

should have a plant

If you'd really like to grow grapes but past attempts have left you sour, consider giving the RazzMatazz variety a try!

RazzMatazz is a grape-growing breakthrough! Backed by more than 20 years of research and testing, it's the first seedless grape to grow successfully without any spraying! RazzMatazz was cultivated to combine the flavor and texture of table grapes with the disease resistance and native hardiness of muscadines.
