At this time of the season we are working on 2022 inventory, firming up spring ordering from our growers and then the website. Our plan is to return the shopping cart in Feb/Mar for 6-8 weeks so you can reserve your plants to pickup when they are ready as well as your gardens in May/June. Please note we will not be adding all the plants available - so always way more to see when you drop by. Season 25 tentative Hours: Thursday to Sunday 10-4 early May to June 29th, 2022

Aralia c. Sun King

$26.95

Golden Japanese Spikenard 2020 Perennial of the Year (PPA) 
Please note these are 2 gallon pot size – Please keep in mind they are usually not ready until early June each season.
Looking for something uniquely different for shade?  Try this tropical-looking golden beauty with large compound leaves that measure up to 3 feet long!   An excellent complement to Hosta and woodland perennials, ‘Sun King’ emerges mid-spring with bright gold leaves held on nicely contrasting reddish brown stems.  If given at least a few hours of sun a day, the foliage will remain yellow all summer.  In heavier shade, the foliage ranges from chartreuse to lime green. 

This plant quickly forms a large clump of foliage which amazingly resists deer browsing.  It reportedly grows just three feet tall and wide, though many plantsmen believe it will grow larger over time. 

In mid to late summer, interesting racemes of tiny white flowers are produced followed by deep purplish black, inedible berries.  Like most Aralias, the flowers attract honeybees.   Zone 4
