One of the most eye-catching and productive spring bloomers, anemones have been a favorite with our customers for many years. Flowering just three months after planting, these easy to grow bulbs bloom abundantly throughout the spring, often producing up to 20 flowers per bulb, making them a true garden workhorse.

Nicotiana alata: Flowering Tobacco. One of the most fragrant flowers we grow, this stunning plant is a must-have for every gardener and is ideal for the mixed border. Flowering for many months, it fills the air with a sweet, jasmine-like scent. Showy white flowers open during the cool of the evening. Pollinators adore them, especially moths and butterflies. On our farm the hummingbirds even nest in the patch. Seed available from Floret.
Love in a Mist (Nigella papillosa) While this plant looks quite fragile, it’s one of the hardiest early bloomers in the garden. Its brilliant ferny leaves and lacy, star-shaped flowers are framed by a delicate halo of fringed foliage. When left on the plant, the flowers form dramatic black seed pods which add a unique textural element to any bouquet. Seed available from Floret.
A spring-time favorite, growing lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus) provides flower gardeners with a brilliant array of colors. Plants have stiff, erect flower spikes of 1-4 feet that emerge from horizontal foliage.
