11/25/15 Our live plant shipping is over for the 2015 season

We propagate our plants in small numbers and most usually sell out by summer so it is always good to order early!  In the past we have made our plants available to pre-order online in January and we ship in May.  That is changing .... For the 2016 season we are taking orders for Chocolae Comos so that they can be reserved for you. We grow them from cuttings and they do not ship until they are well rooted into their pots in late Spring (usually mid-May).  Chocolate Cosmos are the only plant that we are doing early reservations/purchases for this coming season.  All other plants that will be available for mail order for the 2016 season will be listed as they become available to ship. We grow our plants from divisions, cuttings and seeds from our gardens.

 Seeds are available on our seed page

    A new and very FUN species of Cuphea (Cigar Plant).  Minnie Mouse is the darling of our garden and delights visiting children and adults alike with her set of chocolate ears.  3'x3' multi-branching shrublike perennial for zones 9-11 but it grows quickly in one season so we treat it like an annual here in our zone 8 climate or have it in a pot (where it will grow more like 18 - 24" tall) and winter it over in an unheated greenhouse.  It was one of our most "engaging" plants last season here at the nursery and made everyone smile.  Isn't that what gardening is about?  Filtered shade to part sun.

    Ooh-la-la!  We did it!  We finally found a source for this very special and very rare black daphne.  We obtained our specimen from Heronswood in 2005 just before they were closed down and our specimen has been too precious to take cuttings from so we are thrilled to have a supplier that can provide them to us.  Semi-evergreen.

    Crop Failure - will try again...

    Now you can have your Delphiniums in chocolate!  Last season we grew 350 of the English Delphiniums called 'Dark Shades' to see them all in bloom (now this year they changed the name of 'Dark Shades' to 'Chocolate').  We harvested seed from those that were white with subtle brushes of chocolate for our "Chocolate Delphinium Breeding Project".  It will take many years to get them to be consistantly chocolate but we much prefer the elegant white with gentle brushes of chocolate over the inky black colorations produced on the majority of the 'Black Shades' (now known as 'Chocolate')... thus we have named our strain 'Kissed by Chocolate'...

    These English Delphiniums are taller, sturdier and more disease resistant than the more common Pacific Giants.  6'-8' tall.  Sun to sun/pt shade.  Zones 3-10.  4" pots
