    • Annual Plants
      Annuals are plants that grow from seed, bloom, produce seeds, and die in one growing season. Usually intensely showy, and need to be replaced each year. An annual plant's life cycle is usually Spring to Fall dying off completely when temperatures drop. Read More

    • Cacti/Succulents
      Succulents are specialized plants that store water in their leaves and/or stems. They are remarkably adapted to harsh climates where water is scarce or comes sporadically. For most, the period of growth is from Spring into Fall. Many plants rest (stop putting on growth) from late Fall to early Spring, when temperatures are cool and daylight length is short, and during mid-Summer, when temperatures are at their peak. Cacti are a unique subset of the succulent group. For most cacti and succulent species, the active season is from Spring to Fall and they go dormant from late Fall to early Spring.Read More

    • Ferns
      Ferns are nonflowering vascular plants that reproduce by spores. A vascular plant is one that has a vascular system to transport water and nutrients throughout the plant. Ferns are perennial plants that will come back year after year. Some ferns are evergreen while other varieties are deciduous, where leaves will turn brown and die each fall to regenerate in the spring.Read More

    • Flowering Bulbs
      Flowering bulbs, which are planted individually and may be annuals, biennials, or perennials, produce a wide variety of blooms and foliage. Spring flowering bulbs (hardy bulbs) are planted in the fall, grow roots into winter (they require a period of cold temperatures to stimulate their root development), then sprout and bloom in the spring. These include favorites such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinth and others. Summer flower bulbs (tender bulbs) are planted in the spring and flower throughout the summer. They include dahlias, glads, cannas, calla lilies and others. Summer flowering bulbs are also known as tender bulbs because they don't survive cold ground temperatures. Because most of them are tender, they need to be dug up in the Fall and stored indoors over the winter. Fall flowering bulbs are planted in midsummer and will produce a bright display of colors within weeks after planting. They include Colchicum, Crocus, Cyclamen and others. Read More

    • Grass (Ornamental)
      Any grass-like plant valued for its texture, color, and movement in the landscape. Ornamental grasses are meant to grow and be displayed—not be cut or mown. Their growth habit will either be clump-forming or running/spreading. Clump-forming grasses will grow in neat compact bunches or mounds. Running grasses (rhizome forming), on the other hand, spread by underground stems and can grow aggressively and become invasive. Most ornamental grasses are perennial and can be categorized as cool-season grasses or warm-season grasses. Others, such as bamboo and conifers, are evergreen. Read More

    • Ground Cover
      Ground cover is any plant that grows over an area of ground which provides protection of the topsoil from erosion and drought. These low-growing ground cover plants are great for using as an alternative lawn (especially in shaded areas), filling spaces between flagstone or pavers, or for creating a “living mulch” that cools the ground and suppresses weed growth. This group of plants encompasses everything from vines to low-growing perennials and shrubs. Most great ground covers are essentially creepers—they grow out rather than up. Read More

    • Herbs
      Herbs include any plant with leaves, seeds, or flowers used for flavoring, food, medicine, or perfume. Herbs should be planted in the spring after the danger of frost has passed. Most herbs are perennial meaning that they will either stay green all winter or go dormant over the winter season and re-emerge in the spring. Annual herbs, however, will only live one season and usually live only 1-4 months depending on the plant.Read More

    • Perennial Plants
      Perennials are plants that live for two or more years, unlike annual plants, which must be replanted each spring. Perennials return year after year and continue blooming until they reach maturity, which varies averaging three to five years depending on the plant. Each year, they will flower and may completely die back at the end of the season, but the roots remain and will regenerate blooms the following year. Most perennials do not bloom during the first year of their lives and when they do, they tend to bloom for only a few weeks each year and are dormant the rest of the year. Although technically trees and shrubs could be considered perennials, the term most commonly refers to herbaceous perennials which are characterized by non-woody, soft green stems and often have showy flowers. Depending on the plant type and the weather conditions where the plant is being grown, some perennials can be treated as annuals as they may die out in harsh climates and require replanting the following year.

    • Shrubs
      A shrub is defined as a woody perennial plant smaller than a tree having several permanent stems growing from ground level, rather than a trunk. They retain structure above ground all year round and cannot be divided because growth is coming from one set of roots. Shrub plants can vary in size and shape, but most are usually under 13 feet and the stems are usually no more than about 3 inches in diameter. Active and dormant seasons will vary by plant species.Read More
