Price List Availability by Species Name A-Z

Price List Availability by Cultivar Name A-Z




Sold Out heathers are listed in red with S/O plants on the Availability A-Z lists. CHECK THE SOLD OUT LIST BEFORE ORDERING SO AS TO NOT DELAY YOUR ORDER.


We do NOT, I repeat, do NOT charge your credit card until your order is shipped out. Don’t call and demand your money back if your order is not shipped if things are sold out. We never had your money to begin with. If we hold your plants for spring shipping, YOUR CARD IS NOT CHARGED AT THE TIME YOU ORDER—ONLY WHEN SHIPPED. That way, we won’t need to adjust the amount your card is charged—ever.


The Cart CANNOT compute proper shipping rates if going US Priority Flat Rate. IGNORE what the Cart assesses you. We charge the correct amount when we ship it out which is usually much cheaper. YOUR CARD IS NOT CHARGED AT THE TIME YOU ORDER—ONLY WHEN SHIPPED.


If a plant is does not have a button to order, it is not available at this time. A few items are around that there are one or two of but not listed. You can ask if we have something if you wish. I just might have a few!


We are still caring for my elderly mother with dementia, so my nursery time is more limited. Have patience. I am doing the very best I can for you!!


Thank you and happy planting,  Karla Lortz


Phone: 360-427-5318, if you want to order by phone. If it is easier on you if you have a large order, have questions or the cart is slow or giving you trouble,  go ahead and call it in.  Hours are 10:00 AM—3PM PST for mail order.  You have to make an appointment to visit the nursery as it is not open. Call again if you don’t get me. 


I am bad at returning calls due to not enough time.  Our voice mail is always full.  I am much better at e-mail as I can do that late at  night. (I am one person wearing many hats. The return call hat has been lost!) 9 out of 10 calls are maddening junk calls, so I often simply do not answer if my hands are in the dirt!


All orders are charged a $3 packing fee on the final invoice to help offset the costs.   This fee has not changed since 1995.
