Father’s day is Sunday, June 16. If the father in your life enjoys gardening then Roger Reynolds Nursery is the place to shop for his special gift.
Here are four ideas for Father’s Day guaranteed to bring a smile.
Butterfly Bushes – Fun for the Family
Butterfly Trees, or Buddleias, are a favorite of nectar sipping insects due to the abundance of nectar and scent they create, so they attract any nearby butterflies all summer long.
What fun for the entire family to have beautiful butterflies flitting around your garden.
Children of all ages love the show. The long colorful flower stalks, up to 12″ long, are a pleasure to look at, and right now we have a selection of some unusual colors. Choose from white, red, pink, blue, and purple.
Some varieties of Butterfly Bushes can grow to tree size so be sure to talk to our staff about your space requirements. Recent breeds will grow to no more than 2-3 feet in height but some varieties can grow up to 100 feet in height.
Buddleias prefer sun and well-drained soil. They bloom all summer long. Once established they need only minimal watering and less fertilizing produces more blooms. Buddleias are perfect for lower-maintenance gardens.
Buddleias are not bothered by most common garden pests.
Come in soon for best selection.
Encore Azaleas – Keep Right On Blooming
People who adore spring blooming azaleas can now enjoy an explosion of color season after season. Encore Azaleas are the only patented brand of azaleas to bloom in the spring, summer and fall.
Once the “first act” of blooming concludes in the spring, new shoots begin to grow and set buds. The Encore Azalea’s “second act” opens when these buds begin blooming into full flower mid-summer. This unique bloomseason continues through the fall, the curtain dropping with the onset of cold weather.
But, the show goes on. As an “encore”, these exceptional azaleas flower again with traditional spring azaleas and the process starts over.
Evergreen Encore Azaleas enjoy more sun than traditional azaleas, but offer the same easy care.
We have Encore Azaleas in a variety of traditional and unusual colors.
