Hydrangea aspera ssp sargentiana x involucrata ‘The Balls’

We’re a nano-nursery in Southeastern New England with an increasingly anachronistic horticultural approach: actively collecting, propagating and growing plants.  We focus on the under- cultivated and garden-worthy, and specialize in unusual perennials. We’re also breeding and selecting plants from diverse genera such as KniphofiaSanguisorbaHydrangea, and Bergenia.

Kniphofia ‘Nose Job’ (pauciflora x ‘Toffee Nosed’)

We’re open strictly by appointment. As usual, though, we’ll be attending some regional plant fairs in 2017.   In April, we are excited to be at Stonecrop’s plant sale in New York.  In May, we’ll again be at Trade Secrets  in Connecticut and at the Garden Conservancy Open Days event at Sakonnet Garden in Rhode Island.  In July, we’ll be at Landcraft Environments  for another Garden Conservancy Open Day.  In September, we’ll be back at Hollister House in CT for their Garden Study Weekend.  We are always happy to bring along specific plants, if so requested.

Sanguisorba ‘Midnight’s Child’

The 2017 list is now posted.
