This is the last weekend of our 2016 Open Nursery and Garden! Come see our gardens and be inspired to add a bit more color and texture to your own gardens. Be sure to stop by Jim and Kathy Phillips Pottery and Stone Sculpture booths, debuting at Plant Delights Nursery and Juniper Level Botanic Garden for the first time this weekend!
The butterflies are feasting on the echinaceas in the garden. I just caught this Eastern tiger swallowtail sitting still this week. You can bring amazing pollinators into your garden by planting lots of nectar-producing plants.
The echinaceas have been incredible in the garden this spring and summer. Here are a few shots from JLBG last week. First is Echinacea ‘Julia’…a very compact orange-flowered coneflower with sturdy stems.
Echinacea ‘Salsa Red’ is one of the most floriferous coneflowers we grow…truly amazing!
Echinacea ‘Secret Glow’…love this color and flower form!
