Small Business Saturday!

It’s #SmallBizSaturday! Time to show your love to all the small businesses.

Today’s featured plant is Simpson’s Stopper. It’s a beautiful native shrub that should be growing in many, many more gardens.

Another awesome native evergreen shrub for your sun to part shade garden. White fragrant nectar-filled flowers start blooming in late Spring then off and on after that, with orange/red berries showing up late summer to early fall. Slow grower to 20′ tall x 12′ wide. Very low maintenance once established. Can be left to grow as a shrub or limbed up as a small tree. This isn’t grown nearly as much as it should be. Click here to go to the Neighborhood Garden Boutique page for Simpson’s Stopper to order yours!

Happy digging in the dirt …

Coming Attractions…

Got some really cool plants coming in this week.  Some are the usual suspects, but some are ones that either have never been in stock or haven’t been available lately.  They are:  Lespedeza “Little Volcano,” Muhly grass, Mexican Bush Sage, Simpson’s Stopper, and Moujean Tea.

Muhly grass and Simpson’s Stopper are both native plants.

Muhly grass is a host plant for butterflies.  Mexican Bush Sage, Moujean Tea, and Simpson’s Stopper are nectar plants for butterflies.  And…the leaves of Moujean Tea are edible and used to make tea.

“Little Volcano” is the plant in the header pic.  I’ll post more pics and info on each plant when I get them.
