Highlights of 2016

We are only a couple months in, but 2016 is already a memorable year for us. Not only were we named by City Beat as Cincinnati’s Best of 2016 Plant retailer, we were honored by having an historic look at our business over the past 125 years (and counting) by the amazingly talented writer, Cedric Rose. Cincinnati Magazine’s article titled, “This Old (Green) House” took a closer look into our family and its unique business history. If you did not get a chance to buy the magazine, here is the link to read this remarkable treasure to our continued legacy:


What's new This Year

We might be 125 years old, but we are always coming up with something new. Here are some highlights for this year.

In the roses, we have:

  • 59 new rose varieties
  • 16 varieties of tree roses
  • 24 David Austin roses
  • 63 varieties of hybrid T’s
  • 7 brand new varieties of floribundas

In perennials, which are relatively low maintenance, we have

  • Over 350 varieties of different perennials
  • 18 varieties of ornamental grasses
  • 8 varieties of butterfly bush and butterfly weed
    • The most recent numbers from Mexico on monarchs is that they are up so we want to continue to encourage!!!
  • 30 varieties of hosta
  • A larger selection of trees and shrubs including espaliers 
  • The Lenten rose is an evergreen that is extremely deer resistant
    • Comes in varieties of colors and is the first thing to bloom in the spring.
  • We have the peony that is a cross between the garden peony and a tree peony.
    • 8 varieties all-together
  • New smaller bush cherries yielding sweet and dark cherries  
    • Instead of a tree at 12-15 foot high it will be around 6 feet, which is a little more manageable.


See You Soon!

Now, with all of this information, we hope to see all of you very soon! The weather is just starting to turn around so come on in and get your garden started!
