About Us

Nestled in a grove of Red Cedar trees, our small, family owned nursery has been a source of inspiration since the late 1980’s. We specialize in unusual annuals, perennials and shrubs hardy to our Midwest climate. We offer a wide selection of miniature shrubs and have an extensive hosta collection.

Ricki's Notes

  • Spring Passion

    On this early February morning, the fireplace keeps us toasty as snowflakes fall on the garden. But tucked under that blanket of snow is the promise of spring. The January ‘thaw’ gave us the gift of warmth to work on trimming garden trees and cleaning up the perennial border, so we actually have a jump on spring chores. Our plants are snug under their winter cover, but if you peek under you see the Marsala (2015 color of the year) eyes of peonies, lake water blue iris beginning to green up and the welcoming jewels of hellebore buds.

  • 'Falling' into Color

    This past week has taught me that there really is ‘Summer in Kansas’ but until now gardening has been a pleasure. Summer color is still very high and the grass still green as we head into fall. Our upcoming season will be the perfect time to add new shrubs and perennials to our ever changing gardens.
    During our month of rest (?) we potted two hundred iris with an emphasis on award winners and an artist’s palette of colors. ‘Orange Splash’ should satisfy all those orange lovers out there.

  • 2014 Spring Fever

    As Eudora Welty stated, "I never want for anything in winter except spring." We have spent the long January days cozy by the fire, testing new soups and Jim winning at Gin Rummy. I think all of us are anxious for that first blossom of spring to show it's face. On sunny days in the greenhouse you can find Bill and I checking for tender new leaves on our Arums and flower buds on the new hellebore, Ballerina Ruffles, a gorgeous double ruffled pink. New hostas with names such as Gentle Giant and the King will take up space in the garden. Our spring iris will give the garden a splash of Easter egg color. Bill is also nurturing a wonderful selection of Japanese maples for the garden.
