Two nights ago I took the White Flash (aka Callie Craken, one of the fastest English Setters in WNC) for a run around the nursery after everyone had gone home. The sun was going down, the temperature was perfect and the plants seemed happier than ever. I’ll probably say this every time I add new photos to the website, but it is astronomically amazing how fast things change around here. We have a whole new set of bloomers – especially along our Creek Walk, where the sunny shrubs dwell – and will continue to see more amazing blossoms as we get deeper into Spring. The Hydrangeas, both shade and sun-loving, are looking fantastic as are the Buddleia. The stars of the show, to me, this week at least, are the Bright Edge Yuccas. When you visit the Nursery next, they are up front along the side of our Pottery building and they are stunning, to say the least. These Yuccas love full sun and their ivory white blooms make a great addition to any garden. Come check them out, as well as the rest of our vast and expanding inventory.
I hope y’all enjoy the June photos below!

We have a pretty cool employee area
These plants are supposed to be in production, but most of them are ready to come out
Buddleia, Butterfly Bush 'Black Knight'
Balloonflowers are amazing - the flower buds are typically why these perennials are sought after, but their bloom is pretty spectacular too.
These little cuties are just ridiculous. We have the Church Mouse (pictured) and the School Mouse (with yellow margins).
With her bright green eye-catching foliage and delicate flowers, Spirea is a must-have, and these ones are ready to go in the ground!
Some of the many bloomin' Hydrangeas we have done by the Creek. We also have some Oakleaf varietals in our Shade House.
Hydrangeas, with our Plant Babies section in the background - note the adorable 1 Gallon Arborvitae, which are just begging to be taken home to make a fast-growing border.
I love figs. One of the more interesting leaves too.
If you haven't been by in the last week or so, then its time to come see the Daylily patch...
So many daylilies that no one could possibly know all the names
I like to call this one "Frilly Edge Lady Lily" although her proper name is "Solar Music"
Absolutely taking the mick ridiculous Foxgloves. If these are still here by the end of Saturday, I'll eat my hat. Not one of my favorite hats, but all the same...
Those Yuccas again, really, what are they thinking, being so beautiful?
If you do visit the Daylily patch, you may see a white flash rustling around in there, looking for bunnies. Interesting Callie fact: She was originally named Calla, and was found with a pregnant mother who was named Lily.
These roses are upset that I didn't call them the show stealers of the week. They're very beautiful and just round the corner from the Yuccas.
We have a pretty outstanding Annuals section, new tables added this month!
So many hanging baskets to choose from, why just buy one?
This is one ridiculous bloom, I bet this gorgeous Dahlia has already left the nursery by the time I have written this...
Fuscia-mix hanging basket, with sun glare for extra beauty (Sun not included in basket price)
I can't even stand how gorgeous and quirky these Asiatic Lilies are. And just $3.95. Can that be right?
Its a very Lily-packed June Gallery
These Landini Lilies are in 1 gallon pots and around 2ft tall. Not only is the flower an alluring dark red but those bright green buds are offering their own stunning splash of color!

I walk past this tree many times a day and usually stop every time to admire her amazing foliage, she's a dwarf so perfect for a smaller space
Last month the Hostas looked amazing with their foliage but now they're really showing off
I forget what these are, I'll ask Ezra and update this. If I were to name them they'd be "Purple Spiky Fairy Flowers"
Astilbe are generally fans of part sun or shade but don't put them in a corner. Nobody puts Astilbe in the corner.
These Yarrow are so pretty we are refusing to sell them. (kidding, just say the secret password and we'll show you where we have them hidden away).
Take a walk down to house 6, those weeping cherries in the middle there are dying to come home with you. You do know to visit us with a truck, right?
Weeping Cherries, close up
Get these guys quick, there were 12 of them just 3 days ago.
The Corkscrew Willow is doing its best to compete with all those Lilies. How amazing is that foliage?!
On top of all that, we also have a pretty impressive overstock area with its own (brand new) shade area.
