Yes this has been a rather brutal winter for most of us in the United States, harsh for everyone East of the Rockies, thirsty for those West of the Rockies. As the days get longer, with a few days of warmer temps it is easy to spring ahead to garden planting plans and to looking for new treasure to add to the yard and garden. We have got some exciting "New" Heirlooms to share with you like the well-known Asimina triloba AKA Pawpaw that enjoy Zones 4-9, bearing fruit that is high in nutrition, packed with vitamins and Fern varieties that may fit your garden perfectly or the Silver Fountain Butterfly Bush that is best for Zones 5-9, that is fast growing to draw in butterflies from all around. Gaze out the window at the snow pack imagining the green beneath and start shopping today!
Heritage Flower Farm in Mukwonago, Wisconsin is an award-winning nursery growing more than 1000 heirloom plants, providing their stories and spreading them to gardens from Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian and Canada’s Royal Botanic Garden to gardens like yours.
Heirloom plants are plants with a past. They heard the dawn of history, the Europe of Elizabeth I, or Siberia of the Cossacks. These plants witnessed America before John Smith sailed up the James River in Virginia. They are plants with stories, not just perfumes or sweet, pearl-like buds. They tell us how inventive, early people made them into food, medicine and articles of love. They narrate the tales of discovery by intrepid plant hunters. They are the plants of our heritage - your grandmother's garden of flowers. These are plants with wildlife values, feeding bird and insect companions to maintain abundant biodiversity. They are tough survivors - under conditions of their home places they thrive with little care.
Each plant arrives to you with a Plant Profile telling the plant's history as well as how to care for your plant
