Color your summer with the many annuals and perennials that flourish in the North County. Perennial Salvias are one of the most popular. ‘Blue Velvet’ is vying for the most popular variety with ‘Hot Lips’. Bright red, fuchsia and yellow are some of the other shades in these Greggii types. Remember to prune these plants rather drastically after bloom and give them some fertilizer to repeat their performance. See our July Newsletter for more details…

Not-so-ordinary petunias. Left to right – Night Sky, Limelight and Moonlight Eclipse. Pair them with other annuals, plant them in hanging baskets. Enjoy!

Sturdy, neutral colored pots that will show off your plants to their best advantage and will last for many, many years. If you want something a bit more colorful, we have those as well. Choose one of our quality potting mixes – some designed for cactus and succulents and our Azalea-Camellia mix for acid loving plants.

Dicleptera suberecta has been absent for a long time and we’re happy to have it return! Also called the ‘Uruguayan Firecracker Plant’, this plant is a hardy perennial starting to bloom at this time. Dead-heading will prolong the flowering. It’s a favorite of hummingbirds.

Here’s a new hardy, evergreen Pelargonium called, of all things, ‘Pinky Pinks’. The small perennial grows 12 to 18 inches and is covered with single pink flowers. A nice addition to the front of the border or a great container plant.

It’s not too late to plant strawberries. We have jumbo packs of two varieties at this time. ‘Eversweet’ plants produce large, deep red berries; the plants are able to tolerate high summer temperatures. The other variety is ‘Albion’ which bears very large, conical shaped fruit with excellent, sweet flavor.
