Add light and life to those shaded areas in your landscape with the Seasons of Shade garden!  This four-season stunner dresses to impress with its cheerful pinks, crisp whites, and decadent blues in the spring and summer. Watch this garden transform as the foliage changes to reddish-bronze color. Seasons of Shade boasts summer beauties like the Redleaf Bergenia, White Dwarf Sun Daisy, and Clustered Bellflower. This garden also features dynamic plants, like the Husker Red Penstemon, which displays white flowers during the growing season and then captivates with its dark reddish-green foliage throughout the fall and winter months. The Seasons of Shade garden covers 95 sq. ft. and features 27 show-stopping 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.
