OUT AND ABOUT IN THE NURSERY

Here are some exciting new plants to look for this year

Purpleleaf Grape

Vitis vinifera 'Purpurea'

 

One of the best vines for colorful fall foliage, this woody deciduous climber has graceful purple leaves which redden in autumn for a fiery foliage display. Also in autumn, the vine bears clusters of tiny, edible blue-black grapes that are sweet inside but have bitter skins.

Tiger Eyes® Sumac

Rhus typhina 'Bailtiger'

 

Lemon-lime foliage, fuzzy stems, and intense fall color make this sumac cultivar a standout. It grows into an upright, rounded form about 6 feet tall and as wide. New growth emerges chartreuse. Fall brings leaves of yellow, scarlet, and orange. Flowers are yellowish green and followed, on female plants, by hairy, dark red fruit. 

Arkansas Blue Star

Amsonia hubrichtii

 

This is one of our favorite foliage perennials. Numerous star-shaped, pastel steel-blue flowers are massed on top of this 3' native in early spring. Fine leaves add a willowy texture to the garden, and turn a lovely banana yellow in the fall before Blue Star goes dormant. After flowering, shear back lightly for added fullness. Blue Star naturalizes beautifully in dry or well-drained sunny to partially shady locations. Native.

Oly Mountain Fish Compost is a virtually odorless compost and soil additive that is high in nutrients that takes over two years to become a finished product.

Oly Mountain Organic Compost is an excellent compost that is weed free. It serves as an attractive soil cover in beds and effective weed mulch. The extra composting time and careful screening make them an exceptional quality product for growing healthy plants, fruits, vegetables and ornamentals.

OUT WITH THE CREW

The unfinished water feature from the last issue is now done and flowing! Trees and shrubs will be added to make the landscape and water feature look like a natural part of the Pacific Northwest. 

 

 

 

IN THE GIFT SHOP

We are gearing up for fall and the holidays in our gift shop. We can help you create the perfect Thanksgiving center piece or pick out the perfect holiday gift. September 22nd through October 22nd all gift items will be 25% off (excludes consignment items) for our fall sale.

OVER IN THE WINE SHOP

Treveri cellars offers a full line of fresh, complex, yeasty and 100% varietal sparkling wines.  Each bottle is a wonderfully unique experience grown & made locally in Yakima, Washington.  Jason Larkin, Hillary Clinton’s chef did a tasting at Treveri Cellars a few years back, and he was so impressed with the bubbly that Treveri's sparkling wines were featured at all of the state department dinners & receptions at  the White House in 2011. A tipster tells us that this is the first time the White House has poured a non-California sparkling wine, since it made the decision to serve domestic bubbly (the French sort of owned this department prior to the 1976 Judgment of Paris, made famous in the Bottle Shock movie).

Join us for a bubbly tasting December 1, 2012
