Grasses, the Secret of the Landscape

Grasses are the “Secret of the Landscape”. They are perfect for spots where you need height but not width, look terrific mixed in with evergreens, plus they have a characteristic all their own in winter. NOW is the perfect time to buy perennial grasses as most of them are putting on their fall show displaying unique seed heads, ranging from dainty to oat-like stalks to flumes. Another benefit of fall purchasing is to see the red/russet color that many of these grasses will turn in fall. We have the following grasses in stock: Shenandoah Switch,  Karl Foerster Feather Reed, Flame, Avalanche Feather Reed, Red Silver Japanese Silver,  Overdam Feather Reed, Porcupine, Little Bunny Dwarf Fountain and Prairie Drop Seed.

Roses for Fall Color? You Bet!

Did you know that most modern shrub roses bloom well into Fall?  Many are still blooming at the end of October.  Granted you won’t have the orange and rust colors associated with fall, but you will get deep reds, bright reds, pinks, yellows, whites and peach colors from these blooming roses.  Check out our vast array of roses and talk with a staff person about what type of rose best suits your need and how easy they are to grow.  You will enjoy their color from mid-June through October.  At present, we have 19 varieties of roses in stock.  Check out our latest rose to arrive, the “Nitty Gritty Peach” rose.
