They are fast growing and either beautiful or delicious or both. We have an excellent selection of the items listed here, all only $7.97 each, this weekend 10am-2pm. Do we have more variety? Sure do, come see. These are what look fantastic right now and are a for real deal at only $7.97 each.

Large flower of peachy beige color which is the variety Cafe au Lait dahlia
Café au Lait Dahlias, only $7.97 each! Cafe au Lait is a spectacular decorative dahlia, huge flowers in fall and an excellent tuber producer. Dahlias are native to this continent, the national flower of Mexico, and grow much like potatoes or tomatoes in full sun. Dahlias are edible! You plant outside after last frost in May and can take off the side blooms for a bigger dinnerplate flower (like tomatoes). Our tubers have been outside for a month now and have lovely sprouts ready to transplant. (Yes, you can grow dahlias in containers - try fabric pots!)

Yes -- we also have Lavender Ruffles dahlias, pre sprouted!

You said hydrangeas, choose from Chantilly Lace, Pee Gee Grandiflora, Phantom, and Limelight, all Sun Hydrangea paniculata. Yes, that means you can plant them in full sun, or part sun and enjoy them for years. The Chantilly Lace especially are well branched and beautiful. Still $7.97 until they sell out again.

You said trees, Yes, we have native trees! Choose from small understory trees like White flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) prefers some shade, like Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) and thorny Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia). Ozark witch hazel flowers early in spring also.

Bald Cypress trees (Taxodium distichum) grows tall and so tough you'll see them planted in the parking lots and in low areas in the parks.

Wide Brim Hosta, sun tolerant and thick, $7.97 each. Carex appalachica sedge for part sun. I got 4 types of sedge available right now: New Zealand orange sedge Carex testacea, New Zealand hair sedge Carex comans 'Amazon Mist', and Carex 'Ice Dance' variegated Japanese sedge. Heat tolerant with some shade.

I haven't hardly got to the perennials yet. Spring sales get real busy so please do you and me both a favor and print this and circle what you want with a red or a blue pen. I might be dating myself. Does anyone still use a printer?

All Daylilies are $7.97 each. L to R here are Rosa Bellini, Buttered Popcorn, Mini Pearl, and Bumblebee. I have a lot more varieties, it's kind of a problem.

There are so many different plants here, I can't list them all but let me try some more.

Nice sized shrubs

Fothergilla x Mt Airy Witch Alder only 1'-3' feet! Fall color, early spring bottle brush flowers.

Ozark Witch Hazel, mine is right next to that Autumn Rose iris in bloom. Here's what the flowers look like.

Honeybells Buttonbush, another one that starts out as a shrub and grows into a tree, this "straight native species" is covered in clusters of round flowers (buttonballs!) and will shortly be covered in bees as it has the most flowers per square inch. Grows to 3' - 6' as a mounding shrub, but once it's that big you'll probably want to trim it into a 6' - 10' small tree with few trunks .

Black Locust is a tree that isn't for everyone, but is reported to make the finest honey. Nectar clusters hang from delicate leaved branches. Thorny, will thicket!

Ouachita berries are sweet, large, and the canes (branches) are erect so they grow up instead of tumbling all around like a bramble.
