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.

Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy

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

Coleonema - Confetti Bush

Coleanema pulchrum
Cold Tolerance: Zone 8a 8b 9a 9b-11
Light: Full Sun to P.Sun

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

Coleus, Mini Red-Leaf

Coleus x 'Cantigny Royale'

Height: 12 x 12in.
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

Flowers: Early Summer to Late Spring
Common Uses:Alpine Rockery, Butterfly, Miniature/Faery Garden, Ornamental
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

This delicate, literally 1/2 sized version of our native eastern Columbine blooms in its second year. Lucky for you, we've grown them for over 12 months, so these should flower for you this summer with reds and yellows about the size of native Columbine on 10"" stems. $ 4.99

Light: P. Shade - P. Sun
Height: 1 inch Trailing
Water: Normal
Soil: Sandy-Loamy

Bright red, 3/4 inch, trumpet flowers are strewn over draping variegated foliage. Would make a gorgeous hanging basket if it grew faster though we're quite content to host it in a terrarium or faery garden. Easy houseplant $ 0.00

Gold and green blotched, spoon-shaped foliage suggests the name for this mini, tropical, woody tree. Its gray trunk is particularly interesting for bonsai enthusiasts. Great little plant from New Zealand. $ 5.99

Tom Thumb is small! - small leaves, small flowers, small berries. It is a ground hugging, compact version of the popular cotoneaster (pronounced cot'-won-e'-aster not cotton-easter), landscape staple. Absolutely cold hardy, with white spring flowers and fall red/orange berries-it's a faerie's apple tree! $15.99

At a distance, you might think you are seeing a miniature, blooming apple tree, when, in fact, it is this cotoneaster. Why flower when it can have year round, white edged variegation lending to an elegant bonsai or that sweet, aforementioed apple tree in a railroad garden setting. Winter indoors in climates colder than zone 5. $15.99

DON JACOBSEN

When I was young my mom always gardened, so I used to help her.  I dabbled here and there, but really did not get into it until I was in my late 20’s and early 30’s.  Most of my experience was just learning as I went.  I gathered most of what I know from working at Mulberry Creek.  I’ve been a hairstylist for 33 years, and I work in the catering department at  “Progressive Field”.   I am currently in culinary school, and I cater on the side, specializing in gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, and food allergies. I decorate, table scape, and do all the floral arrangments.  When I finish my culinary degree, I plan to attend “Tri C” to get my event planning certification, as well as a degree to interpret sign language and Spanish.  I have earned medals in culinary contests, as well as competitive Irish dancing.  I perform with the Murphy Irish Arts Center in Beachwood, OH.  I got acquainted with Mulberry Creek after I learned about faery gardening.  At first, I thought it was one of the stupidest things I had ever heard, but now I’m known as the faery garden guy, go figure.  I design faery gardens and teach classes for Mulberry Creek and the MetroParks.  I do home faery gardening parties for adults and kids alike.  I also love doing crafty things, creating (like decorative painting), and spending time with family and friends.  What I love about gardening is it makes me feel close to God and nature.  It’s like birthing living things that you know are good for you and the environment.

DWARF CONIFER


Common Uses:Alpine Rockery, Container, Garden Railroads, Hedges/Shrubs, Miniature/Faery Garden, Rock Garden
  • A fine selection of differing shapes and sizes, all reasonably priced. All are hardy to at least Zone 5-10. All prefer as much sun as possible, unless otherwise noted, (especially any golden variety) in any type of garden soil. However well drained soil, will always increase their winter hardiness. All mini-landscapes are best achieved by using at least 3 of the same variety. “Forests” are best created by using 7 or 9 of the same variety and mixing in an odd-ball to break it up. Most importantly- HAVE FUN!
