Winter Structure for Your Garden! Everillo!!

Evergreen (and evergold) perennials are a great addition to your garden. They add texture, color, and form during the winter months when many perennials go dormant. Carex 'Everillo' not only adds texture and form with its thin leaves and weeping habit, but it also brightens woodland or lightly shaded garden with its bright gold color. Everillo also works well in planters paired with seasonal color such as pansies. Carex 'Everillo' holds its color brightest with some morning sun and pairs nicely with blue agaves and other plants with colorful foliage. Here is a picture of Carex 'Everillo' in our sales house ready to ship to you. We have extended our shipping until December 9, and you can also pick up at the Nursery, so you still have a chance to light up your garden or mixed planters for the holidays.     Read more [...]

Carex specialist Pat Fitzgerald visits PDN/JLBG

We were delighted this week to welcome Irish nurseryman/marketer Pat Fitzgerald.  This was the first time we'd met in person, although we've corresponded on-line for years. We had a wonderful time walking through the gardens and sharing our excitement about new plants on the horizon.  Pat is best known for his amazing line of carex that he's developed, with more in the pipeline.  Here are a few you'll see if you visit during our final two Summer Open Nursery and Garden days today (Saturday 8-5), and tomorrow (Sunday 1-5).
