The ideal perennial! Low maintenance,(i.e. no dead heading) with a perfect mound of delicate, sweet tasting, lilac-blue flowers that spoil us from June until after a fall freeze. It's true!

Cold Tolerance: Zone 9b-11
Light: P. Shade – P. Sun
Height: 2h x 4w inches
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Mini Shrub
World's Smallest “Prayer Plant” This is an un-named, ½ sized cultivar of the species, that is not exactly a scaled miniature for landscaping but great for terrariums and dish gardens. It really likes it warm so if it goes dormant, it is NOT dead! It will resprout. Wish I could do that trick with my knees! $ 0.00

Calendula, Alpha

Calendula officinalis 'Alpha'

Light: Full Sun
Height: 2h x 2w feet
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Medicinal, Skin Cosmetic, Ornamental
Clear, bright blooms are easy to see but its chemistry suggests a high resin content, so admire it or infuse in oil for a healing skin preparation. There are many medicinal uses as well. $ 0.00

Calendula officinalis

Light: Full Sun
Height: 20h x 20w inches
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Medicinal, Skin Cosmetic, Ornamental
Though it is Maayan, not Mexican, we'll add it to our herb fair garden this year for its flame colored flowers and brown centers that are as vibrant as they are medicinal. Many blooms exhibit twice the petals for a festive, ruffly appearance in the garden or in a vase. $ 0.00

Light: Full Sun to P.Sun
Height: 12 x 12in.
Water: Normal- Dry
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Garden Railroads, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental


Plants like this silver foliaged tumble-weed separate the passionate collectors from those with a casual interest in unique plants. It's easier to tell that it's alive vs. say the ""Skeleton Plant"", I give it that. Still, it's such a great contrast with its linear, jointed form that I really shouldn't belittle it. $ 4.99

Cardamom

Elettaria cardamomum
Cold Tolerance: Zone 9a 9b-11
Light: Shade to Shade
Height: 3 Feet tall +
Water: Wet
Soil: Organic
Common Uses:Culinary, , Houseplants


Tropical plant which is the source of the very expensive Cardamom seed. It is one of the easiest herb houseplants since it's nearly impossible to overwater. Must reach mature height before it will flower. Leaves also have a very spicy fragrance. $ 4.99

CATMINT & CATNIPS


So what's the difference between the two? The names are interchanged regularly plus there's Calamints, mentioned previously, and the confusion never ends. Botanically, both are Nepetas. Until we nibbled the buds, we considered Catmints as only ornamental, while felines and humans consumed Catnip. In any case, they are long flowering, hardy perennials for faery or flower beds



Catmint, Creeping

Catmint, Creeping
Nepeta mussini (faassenii)
Cold Tolerance: Zone 4a 4b 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a 8b
Light: Full Sun to Full Sun
Height: 1 Foot
Water: Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Flowers: Early Fall to Early Summer
Common Uses:Bees, Borders, Ornamental


Our #1 recommended hardy perennial to plant under and in between roses. Small white-gray, fine toothed leaves form a 2 feet wide by 12"" high PERFECT mound, covered with blue flowers in June and occasionally in the fall. Although stronger and more pleasantly fragrant than common catnip, it doesn't attract any of our neighborhood cats, so it remains untouched. Plant several together in rock gardens, to take advantage of the relaxing, swaying ocean of rare, soft blue color. $ 3.99

Remove flower heads before they mature to prevent self-sowing, unless you desire it for the entire neighborhood. $ 3.99

Common Uses:Culinary


Celery substitute, but MUCH easier to grow. No blanching required.

Height: 4in.
Water: Dry-Normal Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Flowers: Early Summer to Middle Summer
Common Uses:Fragrant, Groundcover, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental


The vaguely ""Granny Smith"" apple scented foliage forms a low growing groundcover which spreads slowly. Double daisy like flowers emerge, the groundwork for an almost maintenance free herb lawn, once established. Perfect for cracks between stepping stones. It has been consistently hardy for us. Has all the same uses as regular “Roman Chamomile” but is shorter and will not re-seed everywhere. $ 3.99

Chervil, Brussel Winter

Water: Normal
Soil: Loamy

Common Uses:Butterfly, Culinary, Edible Flowers




This is an improved, vigorous European variety that is larger and slower to bolt than ordinary ""Chervil."" Use fresh or frozen leaves in salads, soups, fish white sauce, and quiche, ideally fresh or cooked less than 5 minutes. Start in early spring with lettuce since it will bolt into flower with summer heat. Collect seed & plant in August for a fall crop. $ 3.99

Chile, Mini Bonsai Tree

Capsicum frutescens 'Prik kee noo'
Cold Tolerance: Zone 9b-11
Light: Full Sun
Height: 12 x 12 inches
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Mini Tree, Bonsai
“World's Smallest Chile Pepper,” and with just a little lower stem pruning, it is the easiest bonsai tree to grow in just one season. Fine, burnt orange fruits announce themselves early followed by equally tiny leaves that form by season's end. Maybe it'll mature to a 12” X 12” tree, but our 3 year old has not yet achieved that size. Couldn't fill in a gig as a mini scaled apple tree for its fiercely, firey, pointed fruits would be a cruel joke if someone sampled. $ 0.00

CHIVE


Chive Growing Tips: Cut back to 1” high after blossoming. You’ll be rewarded with a second flush of growth and will prevent massive reseeding. (Not a worry for “Seed- Free.”) All are hardy to at least Zone 5. Use the flowers fresh in salads for a “No Tears” sweet “Vidalia or Walla Walla” onion flavor. Or how about in vinegars, fresh flower arrangements, or bouquets? Important: Snip leaf blades with scissors to avoid bruising with a knife.



Chives, Curly

Chives, Curly

Light: Full Sun to Full Sun
Height: 4in.
Water: Normal
Soil: Any Soil
Flowers: Early Summer to Middle Summer
Common Uses:Container, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental



You have to see this quirky, miniature, curly, blue-leaved ""Allium"" for yourself. It is too sweet for rock gardens or small pockets. 2"" baby pink blossoms flirt with bees on top of 3-4"" stalks in June or July. Should be sprinkled sparingly due to a strong onion flavor. $ 3.99

Chives, Garlic

Chives, Garlic
Allium tuberosa

Imagine: pristine, tall, white, 2"" globe, flower clusters in August. Also called ""Flat leaf Chives"" for their wider leaves; Add a mild garlic flavor, by simply sprinkling bits of flowers over chicken, Caesar salad, omelets and bread. I mean what doesn't need a dash of garlic? $ 3.99

Chives, Onion/Garden, Seed-free

Allium schoenoprasum
Cold Tolerance: Zone 4a 4b 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a 8b 9a 9b
Light: Full Sun to Full Sun
Height: 1 Foot
Water: Normal
Soil: Any Soil
Flowers: Early Summer
Common Uses:Butterfly, Culinary, Cut Flower, Edible Flowers
Carefree, seed-free, just not free. Looks and tastes exactly like Garden Chives"", but will not form any viable seed. Wake Up! That means it will not take over the yard, while you're on vacation, if you forget to remove seed heads. It also blooms about 6 weeks longer since it's not ""worried about the kids"". $ 3.99

Chives, Onion/Garden, Staro

Allium schoenoprasum 'Staro'
Cold Tolerance: Zone 4a 4b 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a 8b 9a 9b
Light: Full Sun
Height: 1 Foot
Water: Normal
Soil: Any Soil
Common Uses:Butterfly, , Culinary


Chose this “Oniony Chive” because of its heavier, thicker leaves which makes harvest, fresh use and freezing easier. Freeze by snipping leaves into 2 or 3” lengths, placing it on a cookie sheet and “flash freezing” it for about 30 minutes or until stiff. Throw them in labelled “Zip-loc” bags. This insures being able to pull out the leaves individual. $ 3.99

Chrysanthemum, Mini Desert Jewel

Rhodanthemum 'Morocco'
Cold Tolerance: Zone 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a
Light: Full Sun
Height: 2h x 6w inches
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Mini Shrub
From the Atlas Mountains in Morocco comes inch high mounds of dark green, glossy leaves and white, red backed flowers, early spring through late fall. Naturally, a rock garden or trough is its home away from home, but its sweet daisies demand a shot in a faery scene. Requires draining soil to survive the winter temps. $ 0.00

CILANTRO & IMPERSONATORS


A difficult flavor to describe,and enjoy for some, Cilantro is so important to the world's cuisine. Therefore we offer you 3 different plants. Together they provide year round leaves in any climate. For true "Cilantro," we offer only 'Jantar' as it will produce the most leaf, yet still render Coriander seed, with a roasted, citrusy-sage flavor unlike the pungent leaves it resides above. "Vietnamese Cilantro" doesn't produce coriander-type seed but is thriving in August for salsas and is easily overwintered indoors. "Culantro" is just plain intimidating, looking more at home in the desert than the dinner plate.



Cilantro \ Coriander

Coriandrum sativum 'Santo'
Cold Tolerance: Zone 9b-11
Light: Full Sun to Full Sun
Height: 1 Foot
Water: Normal
Soil: Loamy
Flowers: Early Summer
Common Uses:Butterfly, Culinary, Edible Flowers




This improved variety promises more fresh leaves and extra time to enjoy them in the spring. Grow with lettuce as it will fade with summer's heat. Small white flowers become large, brown, rounded seeds (Coriander). Use or reseed right away for a fall crop of Cilantro. One January we were still picking it during the mild winter! For salsas, salads, corn, chicken, beans, SW cooking and salmon. $ 3.99

Cilantro, Vietnamese

Persicaria odoratum
Cold Tolerance: Zone 4a 4b 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a 8b 9a 9b
Light: P.Shade-P.Sun
Height: Groundcover
Water: Wet
Soil: Organic
Common Uses:Baskets, , Culinary
(RauRam) In only a short while, this cilantro impersonator is becoming a favorite. It looks like a weed, related to “Smart-weed,” (then again, aren’t they all?) and grows like one in the right situation, but will not flower. We have it year round because it’s dug up in the fall and planted in hanging baskets to overwinter. Use like “Cilantro” in Southwest, Asian & Mexican cuisines. $ 3.99

Cinquefoil, Yellow Creeping

Potentilla neumanniana
Cold Tolerance: Zone 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a 8b
Light: Full Sun to Full Sun
Height: 2-4in. groundcover
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy
Flowers: Early Summer
Common Uses:Alpine Rockery, Butterfly, Garden Railroads, Groundcover, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental, Walk About
Everyone has seen the overused ""Potentilla"" in a landscape but imagine a petite version. The bright yellow 3/8"" single rose flowers reveal it's membership in the rose family. Because it is a slow spreading groundcover, it's an icon in our winter windowsill gardens with a rosemary tree and a lemon thyme. $ 4.99

Common Uses:Bonsai, Butterfly, Cut Flower, Fragrant, Garden Railroads, Hedges/Shrubs, Houseplants, Medicinal, Miniature/Faery Garden, Topiary


Although this South African plant is often used as a diuretic (to promote urination), it does not give us the right to brutalize its botanical name as Colon enema. Skipping over Karen's sick sense of humor.... Single, white flowers, mature pink among the tiny fragrant needle leaves then sprinkle the root base like.... confetti!. It is hardy to at least 10 or 15 degree. $ 5.49

Water: Wet-Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Common Uses:Bonsai, Garden Railroads, Houseplants, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental, Topiary


In autumn, there are few rivals to this red maple tree mimic in a miniature railroad or landscape due to its dark red, 1"" leaves. While it is a ""Coleus,"" by the time it matures into a 12"" form, it can easily be trained into the shape of a mini tree. $ 5.99

Like ""Little Lanterns Columbine"", the flowers are almost standard sized, however, the height is shrunk to about 3"" tall, one of the smallest known cultivars. This is a mixture of different flower colors, that rise no more than 3 or 4 inches and will slowly re-seed themselves around the garden. As columbines go, these are long lived and cute! $ 4.99

Light: Shade
Height: Spreading to 4'
Water: Dry-Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Common Uses:Baskets, Culinary, Houseplants, Ornamental


How about a “Survivor” for the shade? In fact, that’s where it’ll produce the best color. Much like the “Variegated,” but, with a warmer gold and green variegation and scalloped edged, thick leaves that “wave like a football stadium cheer.” (Mark,-the king of bad metaphors) More ornamental, than flavorful, which must’ve been lost during the selection process. $ 3.99

Water: Normal
Soil: Organic-Loamy
Common Uses:Baskets, Culinary, Groundcover, Houseplants, Ornamental
One of the best basket plants we've ever grown: it is hard to kill and tasty too! We admit it. We'd forget to water our own baskets on the porch for a week, but it was no problem. Use fresh in Mexican cooking as you would oregano. Break apart a large fleshy leaf and add to a chicken salad along with pineapple sage. The green and white variegation is a joy to use in the landscape, mixed container, moss basket or as groundcover. Makes great sunny window houseplant. $ 3.99

A retail customer of ours from Nicaragua, shrieked for joy when she spotted her favorite home country herb. Very rare. We selected this from ""Companion Plants"", due to its Cilantro flavor claim but we never imagined it could wound us. 3"" long green leaves form a rosette from which comes an almost non-stop source of miniature green thistles creating a beautiful rounded mound. Although it looks fiercesome, the leaves cook down easily and can be used year round. Flowers stalks are used the same until they become too mature. It is best grown in with afternoon shade and lots of water. Except in the ""Pacific Northwet"" where it can be grown in ""full sun"". $ 4.99

Ornamental narrow gray leaves adorn this upright growing plant. We got it because it smells great, but it's at home as a white foliage feature in our moonlight garden. Has tiny bright yellow buds from July to September. Delightful curry scent, but don't confuse it with curry powder: a blend of cumin, turmeric, & assorted Mid-East spices. One of our retail customers uses it to flavor vinegar. $ 3.99
