This is the time of the year when ornamental grasses look great with their plumes either present now or coming shortly. Fluffy Pennisetum, erect Calamagrostis, and wispy Miscanthus add to fall interest of any garden. We have other varieties also that range from the short ‘Little Bunny’ to the tall Erianthus ravennae. We even have the native Sporobolus heterolepis. Review the availability to see what other great grasses we have available now.
In keeping with our plan to grow “Unique and Specialty” plant material, we also grow some unique ground cover. We are now growing Cornus canadensis which is a 3” tall dogwood also known as Bunchberry or Creeping Dogwood. Gaultheria procumbens, known as Checkerberry or Wintergreen, a scented evergreen and Arctostaphylos u u Mass, also known as Bearberry are other great groundcovers. Call your salesman for more information about these three great, but hard to find plants.
In the last several weeks we have had some low 50 degree temperatures at night in North East Ohio. With that comes sizing of material, which we have started. Most of the evergreens are in the availability now and we will be starting the deciduous material very soon. This means the material is just about finished growing, making it a great time to schedule a tour of the nursery. We would love the opportunity to show you our Unique and Specimen Nursery Stock to you!
