Several plants seen in Brucemore’s formal garden will be available for sale, including annuals, perennials, and hanging baskets. Featured plants include a giant hosta named “Empress Wu,” bleeding hearts, and varieties not found at other nurseries. A variety of herbs will also be available, including basil, thyme, and rosemary. Plant Sale prices range from $2.50 to $50.00 with all the proceeds benefiting garden and landscape rehabilitation projects at Brucemore. The garden staff will be available to provide expert advice on the selection, placement, and care of plants.
