What's in bloom?

German Irises.

Yarrow, Gailardia, and salvia (all deer-resistant).


And the star in the nursery right now: Dictumnus (with the unfortunate common name: gas plant). However, admirers beware, Dictumnus can cause skin irritation, so it is best handled with gloves and not planted where anyone will rub against it accidentally.
