Nippon Daisy (Nipponanthemum nipponicum) – Commonly named Montauk Daisy. Formerly classified as Leucanthemum nipponicum and Chrysanthemum nipponicum.
We started propagating these in 2014 and you may have seen them in some of the garden centers we supply.
One of the most beautiful perennials in the garden, Nipponanthemum nipponicum is a woody shrub growing to about 3' with incredibly attractive semi-succulent foliage. The most distinctive quality of this plant is that it is October blooming.
Container grown plants are available for pickup from either our home garden or our Etobicoke garden.
       1 gallon - $12. ea
       2 gallon - $18. ea

Paeonia tenuifolia – These spectacular species Peonys always draw attention from garden visitors. Beautiful single red blooms last for a couple weeks in spring, but the most spectacular part is the finely cut 'fern leaf' foliage. A stunning plant for specimen planting or grouping together.

       1 gallon - priced at $30. ea
       2 gallon - priced at $50. ea

Double Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis forma Multiplex)
Rarely available from retail outlets. We have offered this rare native perennial for quite a few years now and every year we sell out. We could actually sell far more than we can grow, and turn away buyers every year. For 2023, we are hoping to multiply and strengthen the plants in our gardens, and will not be offering any for sale. Note to our loyal Daylily customers - there may be one to be found if you enquire.

Tradescantia (Spiderwort) – Violet Blue three petalled flowers $10.00
