Adding a beautiful glow to the dappled sun area of your landscape, the Mountain Moonlight Garden In A Box offers unique xeric perennials that stand out in a crowd. The striking purples and blues of the Crystal River Speedwell, Pike’s Peak Penstemon, and Alpine Aster resemble the moonlight glistening on a tranquil mountain lake. The blooming McKana Columbine adds an explosion of color dancing in the moonlight with its assortment of pastel bi-colored flowers of reds, yellows, pinks, and whites. The Tufted Hair Grass is the backdrop, a whimsical display of feathery plumes that sway to and fro with the wind. The Mountain Moonlight Garden covers 60 sq. ft. and features 15 show-stopping xeric perennials!

What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 14 to 30 starter plants in 4-inch pots. Plants will be small relative to their mature size, and they will not be in full bloom.
  • "First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap!" During the 1st and 2nd growing season, xeric plants will be in the establishment phase – requiring regular watering to encourage a deep taproot system, and not yet having reached their full size. On average, allow 3 years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity!
  • Gardens will easily fit in a small car  - yes, we're talking Mini Cooper small - unless you ordered multiple gardens (we're not judging). One garden will come in either one or two 2 ft. x 1 ft. trays (pictured left).
  • *When necessary, Resource Central shall select appropriate plant substitutions.

What Customers Say

Perfect for Shady Areas

I'm so excited to watch my garden grow! I've had a hard time in the past with finding shade loving, low water plants for my yard, so this was perfect!

Comes With a Helpful Planting Guide

Fabulous program for inexperienced gardeners like myself. The professional design and the planting guide saves so much time to prepare and almost assures success. Would never have tried a project on this scale ever!!!

Healthy Plants and a Positive Community

I am very pleased with the Garden In a Box. The plants were lovely and are now growing in our yard and look very healthy. My husband and I helped with passing out the gardens to those who ordered them. All the people (Natalie is the only name that I remember) who were involved with this event at Lincoln High School were friendly and easy to work with. Thank you for such a positive event and for these healthy plants.
