Are you ready for the Ruby Throats?

The Ruby Throated Hummingbirds are back in our gardens here at Almost Eden and as always we have a great selection of plants in the nursery that will attract them to yours. Salvias are the number one plant for attracting Hummingbirds and we have the best selection that we have ever had in 2015. For vines try the tame but free flowering native Coral Honeysuckles, our native Crossvines, or the free flowering and perennial Firecracker Vine. Even the early flowering Deciduous Azaleas like Red Pepper in the picture at left will attract these aerial acrobats. To see more of what we offer to attract Hummingbirds just click here.

We've added nearly 70 new plants to our selection for 2015! Just click here to see all that's new and we'll be adding many more as the season progresses so be sure to check back often.

Acre Sedum, Gold Moss Sedum, Golden Carpet Stonecrop

Acre Sedum, Gold Moss Sedum, Golden Carpet Stonecrop

Creating a mass of low light green, almost conifer or moss-like foliage, Acre Sedum is topped by wide flat clusters of tiny brilliant yellow flowers in summer that attract smaller pollinators. An easy to grow and low and spreading groundcover well suited for dryer areas or well-drained, average moist soils and rarely exceeds 4" high. As a container plant you can use this sedum beneath larger succulents, as a low maintenance hanging basket, or even as an specimen plant on its own where the foliage can trail over the edges. In the garden it can be used to trail over walls, tucked away in crevices in walls, on green roof projects, between pavers though it will not tolerate foot traffic well, and as a groundcover. Oh, and it's great for Fairy gardens too! Item# 10799.
