Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum)

Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum) is a perfect groundcover for shady spots near trees or hedgebanks with dainty white flowers in the spring to early summer. It is a natural insect repellent making it the perfect companion for herb gardens, roses and peonies.

Tulips (Tulipa)

Tulips are probably the most popular spring bulb grown and sold in the U.S. They are stunning in mass plantings and come in all kinds of shapes, colors, and sizes.

Rose Varieties

There are several different types of roses to choose from–grandiflora, floribunda, shrubs, tea roses, heritage, and climbers–with several different cultivars. Taller varieties are used among tall plants and near walls. Smaller varieties and miniatures fit into borders or container gardens and among lower plants.
