Crape Myrtles can’t be beat for providing summer color in sunny spots.  We are well stocked with small to large Crape Myrtles.

If you want it to stay small try the Pocomoke Crape Myrtle.  

 A unique dwarf-sized, multi-stemmed shrub with panicles of dark rose pink flowers that bloom throughout the summer.  The dark green foliage turns bronze-red in fall.

Our larger Crape Myrtles include the Dynamite, Pink Velour and Tonto.  These range between 8 to 20 feet tall.  The multi-stemmed form is ideal for use as an accent shrub or small tree. 

If you need to fill a shady spot with summer color consider a Hydrangea.  Here are three that are sure to please.

Cherry Explosion Hydrangea is new to the market and sure to impress.  It is a perfect color to liven up those shady areas of your garden.  It is one of the brightest reds available in hydrangeas. 

Quickfire Hydrangea has flowers that open white then turn magenta as the summer progresses.  This very hardy shrub is perfect as an accent, in mass plantings or as a hedge, or cut flower.

Tuff Stuff Hydrangea is a fantastic new hardy, re-blooming Hydrangea that will provide months of enjoyment in the garden!  Lovely reddish-pink lacecap flowers create a mass of color in early summer, and continue to bloom right up until frost.

There are few things as satisfying to a home gardener than to wander out into the garden and harvest and consume the fruits of their labors.

Consider just a few of the benefits of growing your own vegetables:

- Lowers the cost of providing your family with healthy, organic vegetables

- Reduces the environmental impact of transporting and warehousing food

- Makes your meals more personal and interesting

- Connects your family with the natural cycles of weather, growth, and renewal

- Provides a wholesome activity and lasting memories for children

- It's fun AND good for you!
