We test every plant before we offer it for sale. Your success is our success. You can be confident that these new introductions are dependable garden plants." - Kermit Carter, General Manager
Change is constant in horticulture. Selecting the best new plants is daunting even in one genus, especially Salvia, which contains about 900 species of true sages worldwide. Our New Arrivals section showcases the latest sages and companions in our online catalog whether new to commercial horticulture or only to our gardens. Please contact us if you have questions or gardening experiences to share about these plants.
"Many of these are in very short supply, so act fast if you find something you like!" - Vikki Carter, Nursery Manager
Each week, we walk through the nursery with a clipboard in hands, looking for the best we have to offer. All of the plants listed here are "prime", ready to succeed in your garden. In some cases they are just coming into bloom. Or they may be at the perfect stage to transplant. Or the seasonal foliage color may be at its peak.
In any case, the list changes every week, so check back for the latest and greatest from Flowers by the Sea.
