Sat. Morning Market Armstrong Nursery update
We will have some of these beauties, at left, the Abutilon Hibiscus (aka Flowering Maple)....as well...
This sturdy colorful gem is a fast growing vine, but considered non-invasive, as it's seeds are sterile.
It can cover an arbor, fence or unsightly area fast and give you great color and durability.
Loves sun and yes, can take it all year long.
We are back stocked up with the Purple Possem Passion Vine, that produces edible fruit - sweet/tart tasting, very high in Vitamin C and great eating as-is or in juicing.
This time of year it is important to have Milkweed in your gardens for the Monarch Butterflies. Milkweed is a host plant for butterflies laying their eggs, nectar for their systems and a base food for young caterpillars to eat on. Yes, they can eat it down to it's stems, but simply cut back the plant halfway, and it will sprout new leaves, continuing the cycle.
We are having a sale on beautiful hardy Succulent Bowls this weekend, so come check them out along with all our lovely mini succulents and cacti and lots of amazing perennials and tropicals for home and garden.
