The summer is heating up and so are plant sales. Much of the north east quadrant of the US is getting less rain and is starting to dry out. This means projects are being worked on and plants are going into the ground. We have trucks moving material from Minneapolis, MN to Boston, MA up into Michigan and all points in between. We can get material delivered to you quickly, too!
Sounds like the right plants for the upcoming July 4th celebrations. But they are great plants for the entire season!
