There are many Other plants and shrubs that we grow here at the nursery that just don't fit into one of the other families. They have been placed here on this page until they find a more comfortable page to be listed on. Some of these are very limited in quantities and are usually not found in most nurseries or garden centers. There are edibles here that are just the beginning of several edibles we are starting to grow. If you are looking for a good sized shrub for a centerpiece or large specimen, take a look at a few of these. Trumpet Honeysuckle vines will make a blank arbor, trellis or pergola come alive with visits from little winged swordmen checking out the sweet nectar in their long tubes of red.


Quantities on some of these plants and shrubs are very limited.
If you are looking for a particular variety,
ask us, because we may have it even if it is not in the sale.
