Pre-Planned Plant Collections
Pollinator Garden Shade Mix Collection
This mix is ideal for areas with morning sun and afternoon shade, although many of the plants are quite versatile and tolerant of more or less sun. As in any good pollinator garden, there are blooms spanning late winter through fall in order to provide a continuous food source for all our favorite winged and crawling friends. Grassy plants have also been included for habitat, offering hiding places for over-wintering beneficial insects and nest building supplies for other wildlife.
Our Landscape Designers have curated some wonderful plant collections to make it easier for you enjoy beautiful, well thought out gardens that will thrive in the Rogue Valley climate. The collections include vignettes that complement each other and give all season interest, along with arrangement instructions, plant descriptions and spacing guidelines. The work is done!
Order your plant collection to have it ready for pickup at the nursery and enjoy a 10% discount. Each collection includes a planting plan for a 90-100 square foot bed. If your space is larger, feel free to repeat the scheme and order more than one collection. Appropriate substitutions may be made depending on plant availability.
