Summertime Plants keep rolling in !


 Greetings all ! Tomorrow, Sat. May 28th signals the end of the regular season of the Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete and we head right into the Summer Market at Williams Park next week on Sat. June 4th.

Which means...you can still find some glorious plants for your summer gardens and we have tons of hardy, colorful offerings for you, such as the lovely perennial Morning Glory above, along with.....


Our popular "Miss Pixie" Thornless
Bougainvillea, plus...........












 Who doesn't love this bush that Annie has designated as her "Shrimp Cocktail" buddy.

And then, we have.....











This gorgeous Salvia, is a must for butterfly and bee happiness in your gardens, and........











 You can't beat Mandevilla for summer gardens - it just loves our heat and humidity and will reward you with flowers all season long.


Wind it around your lamp post or mailbox, sidle it up your fence and arbors, or keep it as a short bush - it is truly versatile.







And, one of our most unusual plants, the "Amorphophallus"aka Love Lily, aka Voodoo Lily, have been springing up at our nursery. The pic below shows you the 3 stages as this plant comes back from Winter dormancy - the middle right pot is the "flower" that first appears, and yes, it can be stinky ! The front left pot shows the stalk coming up and slowly opening - and the back pot shows it in all it's glory - gorgeous spotted stem with tropical canopy !


Yes - we will have 2 gorgeous specimens for sale at market.

As usual, we have a great selection of Mini Succulents. Air Plants, Perennials, Shade/House plants, Passion Flower Vines (including the Purple Possem Passion fruit) and much, much more !

So, we hope you can make it to Market tomorrow to celebrate the end of another stupendous season when we will have one of our largest, most gorgeous displays ever - And look for us starting the following weekend at Williams Park - you will find us under the shady Oaks on the Northeast corner of the park.
