Helleborus 'Mango Magic'


The 'Mango Magic' Helleborus is an incredibly unique and rare color strain for hellebores. Like the flesh of a ripe mango, the flowers range in color from mango yellow to apricot with rose speckling and veining.

This especially floriferous strain typically produces large 2-3” blossoms. It has beautiful dark green, bushy foliage that looks great all year.

Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming for six weeks or more beginning in early spring. They are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, from which they get their common name, Lenten Rose. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.

You may order ahead of time by calling us at 651-433-4599 and you can pick your Hellebore up any time between May 1st and June 1st.

Hosta "Ice Age Trail"


With a little work, Ice Age Trail makes a stunning specimen plant in the shaded garden. Nearly every square inch of every leaf is a heavily streaked and mottled combination of blue-green and gold. During the season, the colors gradually change to green and creamy white.
Additionally, it should make a good plant for breeding thick-substanced varigated seedlings. This is a very striking Hosta.

You may order ahead of time by calling us at 651-433-4599 and you can pick your Hellebore up any time between May 1st and June 1st.
