Annual

By far the majority of plants we grow are perennials, however we do grow a few select plants that are either annuals (pansies) or tender perennials that we recommend be treated as self-sowing annuals (e.g. Rudbeckia hirta) or dug up and stored for the winter in colder areas (e.g. cannas).

Select Plant Type:
Asclepias curassavica 'Red Butterfly'
Common Name: Red Butterfly Weed

Showy clusters of red blooms with yellow-orange centers are produced all summer long (if deadheaded). Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds galore. Dark green foliage is tinged with maroon. NOT perennial, but will self-sow if some seedpods are left late in the season. ANNUAL.


Basil 'Greek Columnar'
Common Name: Basil

Small green leaves on upright columnar plants. A favorite because it continues to produce fresh leaves all summer. Generally does not bloom because our day lengths are not long enough. Drought tolerant. Deer resistant. Annual. (Only available in summer)


Dahlia 'Firepot'
Common Name: Dahlia

4" double blooms of glowing red-orange with yellow centers emerge from purple buds. Vibrant deep green foliage. Hardy in zone 7, but may be dug and stored for winter or treated as annual.


Petroselinum crispum 'Italian'
Common Name: Italian Parsley

Dark green, flat leaf variety with pronounced flavor. The gourmet's favorite. Larval food for butterflies. Biennial, but will self-sow. Not deer resistant. Excellent source of vitamins, iron, and calcium for people.
