Swiss Chard “Bright Lights”

Good chilly morning. It’s a cold start to the Alachua County Farmers’ Market, but at least the sun’s shining.

More cool season plants for you today: Swiss chard “Bright Lights” is edible, but I love to use it as an ornamental because of its beautiful colored stems and veins. Snapdragons, violas, delphinium, sweet alyssum, pansies, and mints (spearmint, peppermint, apple mint, pineapple mint, mojito mint).

Cool Season Annuals

Good morning! Guess what … it’s cool season annual time already. I have snapdragons, sweet alyssum, pansies, delphinium, and violas ready to go home with you.

"Blue Butterfly" Delphinium

Isn’t the delphinium above beautiful! It’s “Blue Butterfly”, a smaller growing delph to about 2′. Likes sun/part sun. Deadhead for continued blooms. The color is gorgeous: purple/blue with pinky splotches on the tips of the blooms.

3″ containers are $1.00 each and 4″ containers are $2.00 each.
