Will this miniaturization stop? Call it our stand against the fast food super size craze. Even St. John's Wort has been ""lowered"" to a 3!""

Cute is good- edible is even better. This is not your main season, full sized berry but a delicious, pinkie sized fruit that you’ll be nibbling all Summer. Use as an effective groundcover under any shrub. Loves to spread (albeit slowly) over old bark mulch. $ 4.99

Strawberry, Woodland Faery

Light: P. Shade – Sun
Height: 8h x 16w inches
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Groundcover, Culinary
We were intrigued by this ever bearing strawberry for its fruits “arch over the foliage.” Yes, you get handfuls of berries throughout the summer but they tiny, (very sweet!) and a pain in the butt to pick. Anything that makes harvest easier, catches our attention. What a wonderful groundcover for part shade too. $ 0.00

Sweet Violet, Purple

Viola odorata 'Koenigin Charlotte'
Cold Tolerance: Zone 4a 4b 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a 8b 9a 9b

Water: Wet-Normal
Soil: Organic
Flowers: Early Spring to Early Winter to Late Fall to Late Winter
Common Uses:Borders, Butterfly, Edible Flowers, Fragrant, Groundcover, Medicinal, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental, Shade
Queen Charlotte is far more heat tolerant than our previously offered ""Linane"", which it now replaces. You can nibble on and crystallize the dark purple, incredibly fragrant flowers blooming all year although they only open up in cool weather. Five inch tall rosettes of heart shaped foliage hold flowers, for picking, in very early spring and then again in early fall until a hard freeze.! These plants will not re-seed themselves to annoyance. Easy to grow and enjoy! Divide in fall. $ 4.49

Soil: Organic
Flowers: Early Spring to Early Winter to Late Fall to Late Winter to Mi
Common Uses:Borders, Butterfly, Fragrant, Groundcover, Medicinal, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental, Shade


A gift from the Wee-folk in our gardens. We didn't plant it. Lovely sky blue, fragrant flowers prevail whenever cool weather reigns. However as the temperature increases, the flowers open up pure white! We had to watch this several seasons to make sure it wasn't a mistake. Just as the skies are blue, sometimes they turn white too. $ 4.49

Water: Normal
Soil: Organic
Flowers: Middle Spring
Common Uses:Edible Flowers, Fragrant, Groundcover, Ornamental, Shade
Freeze the sweet white May flowers that hover over dark green foliage, in ice cubes, to make ""May Wine"" during June's strawberry harvest. 3 tbsp blossoms in 1 gallon white wine impart a vanilla flavor. Add 1-2 cups fresh berries. This groundcover beat out the native violet (not to be confused with ""Sweet Violets"") and was weed-free by the 3rd spring. Essential faery garden plant. Be cautious if on ""blood thinning"" medicine. $ 3.99

Light: Full Sun Only
Height: 2h x 6w inches vine
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Common Uses:Mini Groundcover/Spiller
Find this in Mark's G-Scale railroad along the driveway where the blue needled leaves form a very low, waterfall mat with rose colored, hydrangea shaped flowers, all summer long. If you let it dry out a tad before watering again, it will give you heavy blooming in the spring, sporadic surprises in the summer and a nice rebloom in the fall. $ 0.00

Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Flowers: Early Fall to Early Summer to Late Summer to Middle Fall to Mi
Common Uses:Alpine Rockery, Borders, Garden Railroads, Groundcover, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental
Blooms non-stop during any kind of cooler weather. I like the reddish pink, round flower clusters that bob above but I adore the dark, reddish purple blades in early summer for their contrast in the garden or container. Ben suggested faeries use these flowers as ballons when they go on parade. $ 4.99

Thrift, Red Faerie

Cold Tolerance: Zone ]4a 4b 5a 5b 6a 6b 7a 7b 8a 9a

Water: Dry-Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy
Flowers: Late Spring to Middle Fall to Middle Spring to Middle Summe
Common Uses:Alpine Rockery, Butterfly, Garden Railroads, Groundcover, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental
Actually it is more of a dark pine heading toward red, but, trust me, the flowers' hue is intense. In all other respects, it is very similar to ""Faerie"". $ 4.99

Like the mother of a toddler, it hugs (the ground) and moves briskly to fill an herb lawn, pathway or rock garden niche with glossy green leaves and dark pink, spring flowers within a couple of years. Mother of prostrate thymes, maybe, but red, definitely not! $ 3.99

Pink flowers adorn this enchanting ""collector's"" thyme, late spring to early summer. Distinctive, feathery foliage forms a perfect mound. Not always hardy in northern Ohio, but a very well drained soil can help to overwinter it. At home in a mixed or hypertufa container. $ 3.99
