So, what do you do when you have more perennials than can fit on your tables? When you receive so many plants in one week that they are spilling over onto the ground? You have a SALE, that's what you do! All this weekend, purchase 10 perennials and receive 10% off, 20 perennials and receive 20% off, 30 or more perennials and receive 30% off. Now that's a sale! We have so many gorgeous perennials currently in stock. It is a pure joy to walk the grounds. I am truly amazed at the huge selection of plants available, from drought tolerant species to shade lovers to ground covers to succulents to tall spires of blossoms, and everything in between.
Besides having a stunning array of plants to choose from, Garden Supply also offers a huge variety among species. Take the lovely shade tolerant perennial commonly known as Coral Bells, for example. I counted approximately 15 varieties of Heuchera alone, in a wide range of color options, foliage size and venation, and preferred growing conditions. Take a look at what I mean.
We have Heuchera 'Velvet Night', 'Miracle', 'Marmalade', 'Midnight Rose', 'Palace Purple', 'Montrose Ruby', 'Obsidian', 'Snow Angel', 'Plum Pudding', 'Berry Smoothie', 'Blackout PPAF', and 'Silver Scrolls'. I brought home this variety called 'Tapestry' and planted it in a pot under my deck in an area that receives a lot of shade.
'Tapestry' has stunning multicolored and veined foliage with free flowering stems of warm pink flowers. The dark-centered leaves are colored blue green in spring and summer, changing to green in the fall and winter.
And of course we have many, many more plants to choose from. How about some Artemisia, Asclepias, Platycodon, Gypsophila, Penstemon, Agapanthus, Lavandula, Nepeta, Leucanthemum, or Silene?
Silene, commonly referred to as Catchfly, has narrow, strap-like leaves with dark green centers and wide creamy gold margins. Their single pink flowers are attractive to butterflies.
Or maybe you would prefer some Lobelia, Coreopsis, Dianthus, Euphorbia, Lysimachia, Echinacea, Baptista, Scabiosa, Linum, Verbascum, or Centaurea?
Centaurea has deep purplish-blue flowers with thistle-like centers over foliage that is lightly covered in silver hairs. It will self-seed and attracts butterflies. Centaurea is deer resistant.
Yet still we have Phlox, Salvia, Veronica, Armeria, Tickseed, Papaver, Cerastium, Achillea, Sedum, Monarda, Helianthemum, Gazania, Eryngium, Gallardia, Foxgloves, and Columbines. Just to name a few!
I'm out of breath! How about you?
