    Creating Color in the Shade with Native Plants

    For many, creating a colorful landscape in the shade can be a challenge.  Typical options are often limited to hostas, hostas, and more hostas!  While hostas certainly can serve a purpose filling in the north side of a garage or hugging a tree, they don’t offer much to enrich the color or texture of a landscape. Native plants offer a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors that thrive in the shade.  You can create a rich, layered, textured garden that offers color throughout the growing season while creating a healthy ecosystem for birds and insects by choosing from these native shade-lovers.

    Due to COVID 19

    Due to COVID 19 and the fall out of the staffing under these conditions we are experiencing a stumble in our normal services and a lag in filling on-line orders. We are doing our best to hang in to get service and shipments to those of you that call. The high demand on our staff has slowed phone and email replies to an unacceptable level. We ask for your patience in all order and delivery matters as we have been stretched beyond our staffing. All is not gloom however, we have been steadily improving response times and orders that have been sent in both on-line and on the phone are being filled. If not just a bit later than we had planned. We will work hard to to regain our standing and plan on coming back stronger as the season rolls along. We would also like to thank all of you that have purchased from us. To any that are interested in placing an order please do not feel that we can not help. I assure you we can; it is just taking longer than is usual for us. Thank you all for your business, and we will strive to meet your native plant needs.

    What's That Pretty Weed?

    In 2003, I purchased my first money pit, a.k.a my home. I made it clear to my realtor that the house was secondary to the yard.  It had your normal cookie cutter landscape. You know, the kind with the circle and square shaped plants. The only plant left aone was a lovely white birch, which was a great selling point for me. I knew right then and there I could plant anything I wanted. Being the offspring of Connor Shaw, my first move was to bring nature back to earth.

    Milkweed, Monarchs and the Rest of the Pollinator Story

    When I first started as the lead propagator at Possibility Place Nursery, I learned one lesson very quickly: produce large amounts of milkweed.  There are great reasons behind this, both economic and environmental. For decades, Monarch populations have been on a major decline, and educated native plant enthusiasts want to help by planting milkweed.
