ABOUT THE REFERENCE LIST
|This heading is followed by a
description of the plant which includes the overall height, the general bloom time and any
other information which might help you get a better picture of the plant. We have included
alternate names or translations of foreign names when possible. These are quoted in
parentheses after the plant name. In some instances, we have listed the hybridizer or
nursery of origin names - and a few classic dates - in parentheses after the hybrid name
Our source for botanical nomenclature is The American Horticultural Society A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants We chose this book because it is a readily available, one-volume work that can be found in most libraries and bookstores. It also has photos of most plants. For plants not listed there, we have relied on the most appropriate references available to us.
In order to try and keep your shipping costs down, we grow most of our plants for catalogue shipping in smaller diameter, deeper containers than is normal for the nursery industry. These pots facilitate the development of stronger root systems while requiring less soil than other more standard containers. The plant size that we ship is indicated by the catalogue number. An entirely numeric number indicates a plant grown in a 4-inch pot or an equivalent division/propagation unit. A "-1" at the end of a catalogue number indicates the nursery equivalent of a 5-1/2-inch container or a number one division. You will also find the following symbols at the end of our plant numbers:
We are conservative in designating hardiness zones for our plants but they are based in general on American Horticultural Society A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants and our own experience.
All our plants are nursery grown. None of our plants are collected in the wild.
