Comfrey ‘Hidcote Blue’ (Symphytum) March 13, 2012

A superb plant which is happy in both sun and shade.  Drought-resistant once established.

Gorgeous delicate blue flowers preceded by pink (!) buds in spring.  Large leaves almost look like lambs ears, only less fuzzy.  Evergreen leaves provide winter interest.

Slowly spreads to create a large massing of plants.  Can be used as ground cover plant.

Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis) February 19, 2012

Unfurling in February (in a protected spot) and blooming all through March is the marvelous Lenten Rose, an expensive and highly-sought perennial.

I have seedlings from my mature plants, which are smothered with white and purple booms each year in late winter.  Plants will need 2-3 years before they will bloom, but the reward is worth the wait!

 

Vinca major variegated February 2, 2012

A vigorous and indestructible groundcover for full sun or shade.  White-edged leaves are handsome all year round, even in winter.  Beautiful true blue flowers in spring.  Also trails beautifully out of planters or hanging baskets.
Laughs at drought.  Benefits from a hard shearing each year in late winter.

 

Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina)

 

Red berries and cascading evergreen foliage last all winter

Red berries and cascading evergreen foliage last all winter

 

One of my favorite shrubs in the garden.  A stalwart backbone shrub for every garden!

Glossy evergreen leaves cascade gracefully.  White flowers panicles in summer, followed by enormous clusters of bright red berries which cheer me up all winter and look fabulous in holiday swags, bouquets, and wreaths.  New growth is colorful, ranging from chartreuse to pink to red to maroon.  A real four-season plant.

Prefers sun but will tolerate even deep shade, with fewer flowers and berries.  Highly drought-tolerant once established.

 

Periwinkle (Vinca minor) April 13, 2011

With delightful, true blue flowers in April, periwinkle makes a tough, evergreen groundcover that can grow in deep shade even under the canopy of mature trees.  6″ high.

Spreads and fills in gradually to make a thick carpet.

 

Spring is here! March 21, 2011

I’m an Annapolis Gardener with lots of plants to share. Are you a beginner? Yard choked with weeds? Don’t worry. In addition to selling plants, I love talking about gardening, and I’d be happy to share my expertise and get you started. We all were beginners once, and almost all of the plants here require little care, so don’t worry!

Come visit my garden and take home an armload of plants.  Most plants here are $2 or $3 for a small pot, $4 or $5 for large pots, $6 for shrubs.  (Cash only please.)

I plan to keep adding plants as things come up this spring.  I’ve also started seeds for various annuals and perennials that I will sell here.  Keep checking back for the latest.

Gardening has enriched my life so much, and I hope it brings joy to yours as well!

 

Creeping Jenny December 8, 2010

Creeping Jenny is a vigorous and dense groundcover, spreading quickly to fill in bald spots in the front of the bed.  A mere 3″ high, the lovely golden foliage is a tremendous contrast with purple-leaved plants, like this bugleweed (ajuga).

Creeping Jenny grows in sun or shade, and is drought-proof once established.
