LONGWOOD GARDEN VISIT
The most revered flower, the kiku, the chrysanthemum’s Japanese name, is the symbol of Japan’s monarchy, traditionally referred to as the chrysanthemum throne.
This year’s Ozukuri (thousand bloom) kiku at Longwood was the most successful yet, displaying 1400 blooms in one single plant. If you’re going to Pennsylvania, I encourage you to visit this extraordinary garden.
Mammoth Cyclamen Varieties / Persicum
When grown outside, Cyclamen persicum will bloom in late winter or early spring. Greenhouse cyclamen are usually forced into bloom sometime around the holiday season into late winter, but their natural bloom period is earlier. Some colors may not be available – contact us directly at Paulger’s Plants for updated availability.
FERNS FOR SPRING
While some industries look forward to the strong Holiday Season sales, those of us in the plant business have our eyes on Spring! Most gardeners appreciate their delicate downy-textured contribution to shade and Oriental gardens. They compliment more showy plants and spread their fronds to take up space between both flower plantings and ornamental trees. As with most ferns, they are generally deer resistant plants everyone should trial.
