Spring Garden Fair Ornamentals

Butterfly gulf fritillary on torch tithonia, Candace Simpson
The flowers and other ornamental plants that we offer at the Spring Garden Fair have been trialed at our research gardens to select varieties that perform particularly well in our climate, with an eye towards ones that are beautiful and long lasting in flower arrangements. We offer an especially large array of short to tall sunflowers and magnificent zinnias.

Please understand that some varieties may sell out quickly or not be available due to germination difficulties.
