Daphne- tougher than you think

While this photo shows a larger Daphne than ours. We have some great little plants for sale. At $9 each, they sure beat the mail order cost. We've had ours for 2 years in the field (full sun). They are surprisingly tough, surviving last years long cold wet winter with flying colors. The best thing about Daphne 'Carol Mackie' is it's wonderful vanilla fragrance. Late May seems to be their bloom time here in the High Country.

Spring Flowers & Plants

Inside our little unheated greenhouse. This time of year it is full of seedlings just waiting for transplant. 3' tall Feverfew is off to the left.
My currant favorite flower. These blue Clematis are 6" across. They loved the wet snowy winter. A few will be available as cutflowers this weekend and white Jersey Cream is available as 1 gallon plants.
This photo is of week old cut double lilacs. Just to remind you this may be the last week to buy Lilacs. Peony season is now starting.....
This photo from Monrovia show our 'Redwine Lilac' blooms. It is a late bloomer like 'Royalty' which we are currently selling as a cut flower. The 'Redwine' shrubs are still small allowing for easy planting. 2 Quart pots are just $8.
