Hanging Baskets

Add an instant pop of color to Mom’s porch or patio with a hanging basket. Hanging baskets are the perfect gift for those who don’t have a lot of room in their garden beds or live in an apartment or condo. Whatever her favorite color or bloom is, we’ve got it. Many different styles and sizes to choose from.

Flowering Shrubs & Tropicals

Flowering Shrubs, such as roses and hydrangea, make a stunning statement wherever they are planted. Roses are a popular choice for a Mother’s Day gift. Instead of cut roses, consider tea roses, Floribunda or the quintessential rose, the David Austin. Drift roses and knockout roses also provide beautiful blooms all spring and summer, as well as color and interest to the yard.

Hydrangeas come in a wide variety of colors and bloom types. With their large, dramatic blooms, these beauties are a site to see. Or, if tropicals are more her thing, choose from fragrant gardenia and jasmine, or tropical plants such as palms or cannas. Nothing says ‘it’s summertime’ quite like a tropical.
