Plant Sale Buggy
Next time you are at the JC Raulston Arboretum, be sure to check out the Plant Sale Buggy located outside the Bobby G. Wilder Visitor Center. It’s a great spot for visitors to find a wide assortment of choice and unusual plants for your garden. Self-service purchases are made by cash or checks only, and it is open rain or shine during regular Arboretum operating hours. New plants are added weekly, so visit often.
Here's what we're offering this week.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Vintage Gold'
'Vintage Gold' sports bright golden, fern-like foliage that is soft to the touch and holds its color well throughout the seasons. It starts as a low mounded plant but becomes more pyramidal with age. It is one of the best falsecypress we've grown for gold color retention.
Curcuma petiolata 'Emperor'
variegated hidden ginger
Newly described (2006) witchhazel from Mississippi similar to H. vernalis but with larger leaves (to 9”). Red to orange flowers in late winter.
Hamamelis virginiana 'Harvest Moon'
Unlike many other witchhazels, this native shrub flowers in fall with warm orange-yellow flowers after most other plants have gone to sleep for the winter. Grow in sun to part shade. This is an especially heavy flowering selection.
Hibiscus 'Cherry Choco Latte'
Hosta 'Big Mama'
Hosta 'Tongue Lashing'
Ipheion uniflorum 'Rolf Fiedler'
spring star flower
Liriope muscari 'Okina'
frosted clumping monkey-grass
Ocimum 'African Blue'
Salvia regla 'Jame'
hardy white gloxinia
