HUGE $7.97 PLANT SALE!
Local grower must sell 1,834 perennials, shrubs, and trees THIS WEEKEND in Oklahoma City
Summer is here! Right now is still the ideal time to buy plants that you want to enjoy in your landscape for years to come. These plants are hardy and want to live here. They are fast growing and either beautiful or delicious or both. We have an excellent selection of the items listed here, all only $7.97 each, 10am-2pm, this Thursday June 22, Friday June 23 and Saturday June 24. Do we have more variety? Sure do, come see. These are what look fantastic right now and are a for real deal at only $7.97 each.
White Spider Lily Plant sale! Golden Echinacea
Café au Lait Dahlias (left), only $7.97 each! Cafe au Lait is a spectacular decorative dahlia, huge flowers in fall and an excellent tuber producer.
Lavender Ruffles dahlias (right), pre sprouted in 3 quart round pots! These are really vigorous!
Dahlias are native to this continent, the national flower of Mexico, and grow much like potatoes or tomatoes in full sun. Dahlias are edible! You plant outside after last frost in May and can take off the side blooms for a bigger dinnerplate flower (like tomatoes). Our tubers have been outside for a month now and have lovely sprouts ready to transplant. (Yes, you can grow dahlias in containers - try fabric pots!)
Chantilly Lace Hydrangea, no these aren't the shady blue types. Just $7.97 very well branched Hydrangea paniculata 'Shantilly Lace' for SUN! Yes, that means you can plant them in full sun, or part sun and enjoy them for years. Still $7.97 until they sell out again.
These are all sun hydrangea, Hydrangea paniculata grandiflora is known as "Pee Gee Pink" -- and fantastic for training into a tree (by pruning). Give them at least 6 hours of sun for a beautiful summer hedge. Gorgeous dried or cut flowers.
IT'S TIME: BUTTONBUSH IS READY
If you are not growing buttonbush, you need to come here and get you a couple. This might be the perfect native shrub. Likes part sun to part shade, (most conditions: 2-8 hours of sun) and can deal with both clay and standing water, grows happily and responds well to hard pruning if you like that sort of thing :D.
Called "Honey Balls" cause it is fantastic for beekeepers -- most nectar per square inch -- loaded with bees, or buttonbush cause the flowers are 1" wide and spheres like homemade cloth buttons. It is going to eventually be a small tree, but won't mind at all if you shear it up to the size you want. Also another good one to prune into a tree form. Your fancy neighbor might have a Japanese red maple but YOU will have a similarly sized small tree that is covered in pollinators June through August.
Yes, we have MORE native trees!
Plant a tree, Choose from:
White flowering dogwood (Cornus florida)
Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis)
thorny Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia)
Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum)
Willow Oak (Quercus phellos)
White Dogwood trees flower in spring and what look like 4 petal flowers are actually the bracts in a cross shape. See? Just $7.97.
Eastern Redbud (or we call her Mrs. Redbud) flowers gorgeously early in spring in parking lots all over. If you are near a Walgreens, they probably have a redbud :) It's cause they are so tough and want to grow, and a good height for looking at. These lovely spring trees, Only $7.97 each.
Bald Cypress trees (Taxodium distichum) grows tall and so tough you'll see them planted in the parking lots and in low areas in the parks. Beautiful yellow to orange fall color before the leaves drop each year. Can be used in a double staggered row as a screen / windbreak. $7.97 each.
Black Locust isn't the tree for everyone -- it's thorny, it thickets, it's happiest at the forest's edge -- but the hardwood is wonderful and the honey is prized. Plus beautiful white pea flower clusters in late spring. Only $7.97, really!!
Wide Brim Hosta, sun tolerant and thick, $7.97 each. Iris germanica bicolor, 2 fan division $7.97. Carex appalachica sedge for part sun, $7.97 each.
