Perennial Plants for Cut Flowers







Who isn't mesmerized these days with the mind-boggling array of perennial plants on the market? What we really want to know is: How does a plant
perform in gardens over the long-term? Since 1989, our nursery has been trialing plants in our own trial gardens. We've compiled a list of and now offer
the best of the best "must have" plants in gardens where they will grow.
