Sorry we are now closed for the season. We will be spending this time working on the gardens, 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 for pickup order reservations in May/early June. Please note we will not be adding all the plants available - so always way more to see when you drop by. 2022 Hours tent. Thursday to Sunday 10-4 early May to ??

Aralia c. Sun King

$22.95

Golden Japanese Spikenard 2020 Perennial of the Year (PPA)  Please note these are 2 gallon pot size – unable to ship.
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
