Warm greetings to all our friends and clients!
Despite the weather playing with our hopes, we are preparing for the coming of Spring! Ultimately, we are at Mother Nature's mercy.

We are keeping busy with hiring, training, and preparing for the coming season, whenever it decides to arrive!

Perennial of the Month: Bergenia 'Sakura', Bergenia or Pigsqueak
With cute, evergreen foliage and gorgeous pink flowers, Bergenia fill a niche in the shade to part shade garden. These low growing perennials stay around 6-10″ in height and slowly spread to 12-18″, making them a nice neighbor to other shade lovers. Their flowers appear in early spring on thick red stems, and even after deadheading, their foliage colors bring interest to the shade garden all season long! Autumn color is an added bonus for these cuties!
Shrub of the Month: Chamaecyoaris pisifera, Golden Charm Falsecypress
The value of texture and color in the landscape is apparent when viewing a monochromatic scene of medium green foliage of medium texture, repeated over and over. Break it up with an adorable addition to the landscape, this evergreen shrub with golden sprays of threadlike needles that brings warmth and brightness to the garden! With a tidy size and pyramidal shape, the golden glow of this shrub is a shining jewel in the garden.
One swallow does not make a summer, but one skein of geese, cleaving the murk of March thaw, is the Spring.
We are looking forward to being back in your gardens again soon! Thinking warm thoughts!
