Our featured plant: Eupatorium purpureum

Statuesque Eupatoriums, Aster All-Stars, Late Summer Shipping!

Beloved by bees and butterflies...

Eupatorium, commonly called Joe-Pye Weed, is an easily grown, dignified North American denizen. Its large, hazy-looking broad domes of clustered rosy purple flowers crown sturdy, straight-up wine-tinted stems with textural deep green leaves that are presented in loosely spaced whorls. Lending handsome mass to meadow plantings and either the middle or back of the border, they can also be grouped or planted singularly along pond and stream edges, as well as woodland peripheries. Joe-Pye Weed appreciates sun or bright shade, good air circulation plus fertile adequately moist soil. Favored by bees and butterflies and perfect for cut arrangements, its fluffy blooms later broadcast mulled cocoa shades then morph into attractive seed heads, which nourish finches and tits. Eupatorium ‘Gateway’ struts a bushier more compact stature, while the straight species boasts a mighty sky-bound stance.

Aster’s cheerful daisy faces....

plus the profusion of colors and sizes that make up this genus promise lots of flower power when other perennials have tuckered out. Invaluable for summer and fall gardens, our no-fuss Aster offerings are tried-and-true performers in sunny locales with average soil and moderate moisture. Cherished by plant aficionados, flower arrangers, song birds and pollinators, many Aster cultivars work well in either formal or informal venues and can be tucked into stylized meadows, cottage gardens and borders Please feel free to peruse our additional on-line Aster selections. 

Sprinkled amidst the Asters, we’ve included Hydrangea ‘Limelight’s conical creamy white trusses, the mesmerizing fine-textured foliage of Sorbaria ‘Sem’ plus a handful of other perennials that add late summer appeal.   

 All of us plant and paper wranglers wish you good health and happy digging!
