Oregon product is very much off their normal schedules due to erratic weather. Things are early, finished early etc.

For example we are running eremerus on weekly specials..almost a full month ahead of normal harvest schedule. Giant allium is right behind it, again a full month earlier than expected. Peonies are in full production..these heat waves may shorten the season for many varieties. Cuts are coming in from the fields in waves with the heat.

Mary Milton viburnum is done, snowball in this region is done,  lacecap nearlydone..we will have a new version called ‘Blue Muffin’.

We’ll see some limited amounts of lupine, and baptisia this next week. Hostafoliage, Lady’s Mantle and Tritoma all available next week.

Blooming Dogwood should probably be finished after this week.

Mock Orange is amazing right now! May not be here long…

Cut Blueberries are a new product for us. Production is still very limited ..new crops are scheduled to start next year,  with even better production the year following..they take time to establish. Sorry but we cannot meet all demands for these..not yet anyways!
