Nestled in a grove of Red Cedar trees, our small, family owned nursery has been a source of inspiration since the late 1980’s. We specialize in unusual annuals, perennials and shrubs hardy to our Midwest climate. We offer a wide selection of miniature shrubs and have an extensive hosta collection.
Are all of you feeling really lucky??? We certainly are, I think we won the weather lottery this summer. It is mid August and our windows are open. In the garden, summer flowers are still in great bloom and no crispy foliage in sight. The cool breeze has a scent of fall to it and I am thinking about digging in the soil again.
Ready for Spring
As we looked out upon our snow laden cedars last week the red winged blackbirds at the feeder gave us a reliable sign spring is not far behind. In the garden colorful hellebores and glistening snowdrops are blooming under twenty-four inches of white. Jim and Bill have been busy this winter moving around shelves in the shop and building a new staircase to the garden. Mary and Linda redesigned the tropical fairy garden and it is just delightful!
Ricki's Fall Letter
I do hope fall is actually here. At my age I hate to wish my life away, but I have never wanted a summer to end more than this one. Here at Red Cedar we had to make a decision on which garden areas to keep watered. It has certainly been a summer to test those perennials and shrubs that can survive in just about any type of condition. Despite these conditions some perennials have been awesome. The new rudbeckia ‘Little Goldstar’ and coneflower ‘Tiki Torch’ are still in bloom with no browning of leaves.
