PLANT PHOTOS

Please note this is not the entire selection of plants.

Listed below are flowers and some plants that look alike that may be difficult to tell apart (e.g. zucchini and yellow squash - our zucchini has white lines which is completely normal and is a good way to distinguish from yellow squash)

ABOUT OUR FLOWERS

 

Flowers serve many functions in the garden and we're excited to expand our selection this year!

Borage

Large plants bear hundreds of small edible flowers, mostly blue and some pink. Long harvest period. Borage flowers attract bees and butterflies. Both flowers and leaves are edible with a cooling cucumber flavor. Great for lemonade on a hot day!

Marigold

Hundreds of bite-size, edible petite flowers cover neat, low mounds of lacy foliage with a citrusy scent. Long-blooming for beds, borders, and containers where it attracts beneficial insects, such as ladybugs, hoverflies, butterflies, predatory bugs, and parasitic wasps. Both leaves and flowers are edible and are used as flavorful salad greens and garnish.

Calendula

Excellent medicinal properties. Used as an herbal application for inflammation and localized skin problems. Also used as a dye for food or fabric and as an edible flower. 

Nasturtium

Peppery-flavored foliage and edible flowers. Repels pests and attracts beneficials. 

Echinacea Purpurea

Medicinal compounds are most concentrated in young flower buds and fibrous roots. This is the easiest and hardiest cultivar to grow in northern climates.

Zinnia

Easy to grow flowers that will bloom for a long time if you stay on top of deadheading. Possible to dry for dried flower bouquets.
