Earth Day

Just in time for Earth Day, we’ve approached that time of the season again where lots o’ crops are working on flushing themselves out, some of them inviting the gaze of admirers with the first colorful blooms of the season. It’s almost unfair and impossible to pinpoint simply one of the many lovely early Spring-flowering perennials that we offer here at Pleasant Run, so this week, we’re going to highlight several native selections that are in full spectacle and catching our eye. Without further ado, we bring you Geranium maculatum, Tiarella cordifolia ‘Brandywine’, and Aquilegia canadensis ‘Little Lanterns’.

Bleeding Heart Bonanza!

The last week has brought a fresh flush of flowers and foliage around the entire Nursery. Color is becoming abundant from corner to corner, blanketing the property in yellows, purples, pinks, creamy and bright whites, and verdant greens. Amongst these harbingers of Spring, the well-loved Bleeding Hearts are making their appearance – both in the landscape as well as in production here on the farm. Being as this is a beloved ornamental and well known to plant aficionados and amateurs alike, we’re gonna keep it pretty straight forward this week and let the beauty of the plants speak for themselves through photographs. (Don’t worry, we’ll give you some fun plant facts along the way, too.)
