During the shipping season (May thru October), our Facebook fans will receive notification of special promotions being offered on our web site. They will also be periodically posted on which plants are especially nice at that particular time (making these plants a better buy at that particular time).

     You will find hundreds of plant nurseries on the Internet. Only a few though, might offer higher quality perennials at prices lower than ours. Along with striving to produce high quality perennials at competitive prices, we also try hard to offer many garden worthy perennials that are often difficult to find at other plant nurseries. Also offered on our web site are  lots of articles on butterfly gardening. To access them, just visit the 'Articles' page of the web site. I hope you enjoy your visit to our web site!

New for 2016:  Butterfly Photography by Rose Franklin

Having been a butterfly photographer for 20 years, I decided it was time to edit, and then share, some of  my best photos with other butterfly enthusiasts. While searching for a medium to display my photos on, I came across two that seemed perfect for images of butterflies: metallic paper prints and aluminum metal prints. My prints are offered below on your choice of these two formats.

Metallic Paper Prints:  Printed on Kodak Professional Endura Premier Metallic Paper, photos have a chrome-like, glossy  appearance while images are vibrant and appear to have a three-dimensional look. Many  photographers are now choosing metallic paper for their most precious photos. Being paper prints, these photos will require a picture frame, and the frame is not included with purchase. You will have to provide your own frame.

Metal Prints:  While metallic paper prints are printed on paper, metal prints are actually printed directly onto aluminum sheets, with the colors actually being infused into the metal. These photographs are waterproof, scratch and UV resistant, and luminous with rich color and high resolution. Each photo is .045" thick (that's thick) and ready to display (these photos require no frames). All of the photos have a glossy finish. Each of the 12" X 12" photos below have an easel attached to the back and can be displayed on a tabletop or hung on a wall. All other photos come ready for easy hanging and will extend out from the wall 1/2"  when hung.

We do not publish a printed catalog.
Our inventory of perennials changes on a regular basis during the growing season (May thru October). The plant species we offer in May differs from what we offer in July, and what we offer in July is different from what we offer in September. Because our inventory changes from month to month, a catalog just would not work for our business. Our web site functions as our catalog.

     

We ship perennials from May through October and offer two ways to order:
(1) Use our on-line shopping cart  which utilizes secure PayPal payment or  (2) Print our on-line order form, fill it out, and then mail it to us, along with your payment (personal check or money order).
