Mercer March Mart Buys
Check out Mercer's March Mart. New plants purchased for the garden include Ruby Frost Coreopsis, large, deep ruby flowers are fringed with a collar of frosty white. Always in search of new plants to try and this year will plant the Cardinal Flower which blooms May-Oct and Copper Canyon Daisy with it's yellow daisy-like blooms. Most of the 80 butterfly weeds planted last year are regrowing but I purchased 18 more of the Asclepias Curassavica. Our garden is 2500 square ft or 277 sq yards. A recommended 2-10 plants of milkweed and nectar plants per sq. yd. is recommended by Monarch Watch.
