Great plants to put in now!

butterfly bush

This new shorter-stature “Butterfly Bush” only gets 5-6′ tall and is much easier to place in most gardens than the larger varieties.  Want humming birds and butterflies in your garden?  This is a favorite of theirs and it has a long blooming time (June to October) It can take our low water restrictions in California; and deer leave it alone!

sage bush

Looking for a good home, while happily blooming in the Cottage Garden, this extremely hardy, long-blooming and low-maintenance jewel doesn’t ask for much other than good drainage.  They actually benefit from some dryness….and oh yes, deer don’t like them!

pineapple sage

Be prepared for clouds of exquisite, eye-catching, scarlet-red flowers! “Pineapple sage” blooms late in the Summer thru Fall providing a nectar oasis for hummingbirds!  We humans can enjoy the sight & a sweet ripe pineapple scent (& taste!) from the crisp, yellow-green leaves.  This is another deer-resistant and low-water plant.
