Our goal is to propagate choice rock garden, hardy native and unusual dry land plants from around the world. We grow our plants in Pueblo, CO where winters are cold and dry with only occasional snow cover. Summers are hot and dry with cool nights due to our elevation of 4,795 feet. Our average annual precipitation is less than 12” and often it comes in large doses and ends up as runoff. We are Zone 5 but lately seem to be drifting toward Zone 6. Generally, if it doesn’t want to grow here, we don’t grow it.
Many of the
plants offered in our catalog have low water requirements and can be
included among those which thrive in xeriscapes or in scree conditions.
Each plant comes labeled with its name, mature size (height [height in
flower] x width) and culture requirements. Plants that are appearing in
the catalog for the first time are designated NEW
and those returning from previous years are designated
RENEW. Some of the plants offered are in
limited quantities, but it is our desire to make even a small number of
plants available so that they can be observed and appreciated in gardens
as soon as possible. Don’t forget to order early for best availability
