Our online store is temporarily closed. We hope to be able to update the online inventory as soon as possible, but there have been a lot of unanticipated life events this season that have complicated our time for computer crunching.

Our self-serve plant stand is now open! Please stop by and take a look at some of our inventory or come by one of the local markets we're attending this season!

Spicebush (Lindera benzoin)

Spicebush is deer resistant and has aromatic leaves. The plant has lovely yellow blooms in the spring that provide nectar for native pollinators and insects. Spicebush also serves as a host plant for the Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillar. In autumn, leaves turn gold and can be a centerpiece in any landscape. Red berries in autumn also serve as food for migratory birds.
