Landscape Staples

perennial landscape

We’re proud to supply large 32ct PowerPlugs to landscapers across the US who have found that their well-developed roots and bulky crowns help them take off quickly when planted directly into the ground. PowerPlugs are ideal for mass plantings where many plants are needed to fill a space on a budget. And with no extra packaging, there are no pots to collect when you’re done planting.

We’ve identified a list here of durable perennials we feel are staple items that deserve to be widely planted in landscapes. In truth, we could expand this list much further to include many more salvias, alliums, grasses, hardy geraniums and more. This list is a great place to start. We’re always happy to talk you through additional ideas or answer any questions you might have about your next project. Here’s how to contact us.
