  1. “leopard plant” cold hardy down to twenty for the foliage, zero degrees for the roots. love you garden shop! mark

  2. Jeanni, drift roses seem to be the plants of choice for the model homes here at Victoria gardens. Would they be a good addition to our garden?

    • Hi, Mosey. Drift roses are along the lines of the Knock Out Roses in that they’re a lower maintenance shrub rose. Personally I think the Drifts are prettier than the Knock Outs. So to answer your question, yes, Drifts would be a good addition to your garden. Just make sure they’re planted in an area that gets at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. And if possible, let the Drifts grow into their natural shrubby shape instead of having them sheared into squares. I’ll be getting more of the Drifts in stock soon, so let me know if you need me to get a certain color.

  3. i would like to get five or so more leopard plants, the spotted ones if you can get them. what a great plant, 27 in the garden and perfect! let me know…..will be visiting often if you keep getting this selection of “hard to find plants!” i think after this next weekend “spring has sprung!”………..mark

    • Hi, Mark. I have one supplier that has three different varieties of the leopard plant. That supplier’s nursery is located out of town, but I’ll going up that way in about two or three weeks. Will pick some up while I’m there. Will let you know when they’re in.

      I think spring is almost here too! So happy for that.

    • Mark, I have Farfugium japonicum “Crispata” in stock now. It has the coolest ruffled edges. I saved five for you. My vendor was out of the spotted ones, but I’ll get some when they’re available.

  4. wil be by…thx

    • Hi, Salli! Good to hear from you. I do live in Starke, but I don’t have a store there. Right now I’m just doing a farmers market in Gainesville on Saturday mornings and garden design projects.

      I don’t have any Louie Phillip roses at the moment.

    Hi, I have “monster” segas in my front yard and I’d like to find someone to cut them back; they have become multiples and are beyond my talent and knowledge of gardening. I don’t want my neighbor to cut them without my permission like she did when I was away!
    Please help. The cottage is on Congress and Burgundy in Bywater.
