Here are this month’s featured plants. We think this selection would look great in your garden right now. Visit our plant database to learn more about aquatic & terrestrial plants.

TERRESTRIAL PLANTS

Pansy

Pansies have been around for centuries and were especially popular during the Victorian era and were thought to be the flower of lovers. A yellow Pansy flower is sure to brighten up any container or flower bed. How bright and sunny it is!

Green Beauty Boxwood

An excellent evergreen shrub for small hedges. Retains its dark green foliage in the hottest summers, becoming bronze-tinged in cold weather. Well-suited to pruning into formal shapes. More heat, humidity and drought tolerant than other English boxwood varieties.

EverColor Everest Variegated Sedge

A mounding fountain of ribbon-like white-striped green foliage that will add wonderful texture to any dappled sun or shade garden. Forms a neat mound of foliage that arches up from the crown and weeps gracefully. An excellent container or landscape specimen for beds and borders. Plant en masse for a stunning effect. Evergreen.

Helleborus Argutifolius ‘Ice & Roses’

These aristocratic, evergreen plants bring an architectural quality to the shady garden. Most bloom in early winter in mild climates and in late winter or very early spring where the ground freezes hard. Resistant to both deer and voles, these plants are long-lived and provide exquisite blooms at a time when flowers are a scarce delight.

Sarcococca Ruscifolia ‘Fragrant Sweet Box’

A beautiful shrub for shady areas! White spring flowers are small, but very fragrant. Blooms are followed by bright red ornamental fruit. Forms natural espalier against a wall. An outstanding choice for dry shade gardens where other plants won’t grow! Evergreen.

Plant Database

Have you checked out our plant database? It contains information about the plants that we sell at the nursery and more!

We have even taken it one step further and have incorporated QR codes into the database to help you save and recall information on the plants you are interested in at home or have bought from our nursery. You can bring us the saved plants from this data base to help us locate the ones you want. As well as when you come to Falling Water Gardens you will be able to scan the plant signs to get further information about the plants and flowers.

fallingwaterdesignsplantsWhat is a QR code? In the simplest terms a QR code is a bar code. Most smart phones come equipped with a bar code/QR code reader that will scan the QR code and bring you to the web page of information about our plants. From there you can bookmark the page. If yours does not contain a QR code reader already, you can download one for free through your phone’s app store.
