Perennials

Just as their name says, perennials are a type of plant that comes back every year. They typically live for over two years, producing seeds each year. Then, they die back when frost occurs and sprout new growth again the next spring. Certainly, perennials can be a wise investment in your landscaping. What goes into the ground as just a few leaves and twigs has the potential to grow into a tall, vibrant plant steadily over time. Perennials can eventually form to the shape of your own landscape, coming back every year to beautify your yard.

Perennials reliably bloom at a specific time of the season. With knowledge of their blooming window and growth rate, the design of your perennial garden can display a mixture of textures, colors and shapes every season. Optimize your perennials as a type of cut flower, anticipating they’ll return the following year. There are some perennials that re-bloom, after a pruning, even in the same year. After a perennial’s ability to bloom depletes, their leaves still continue their vibrant display, retaining energy inside their root systems for the next growth season.

Annuals

Annuals are a popular type of plant that go through their whole seed-to-flower life cycle within one growth season. All of the plant’s leaves, stems and roots die yearly. It’s only the plant’s dormant seed which bridges the distance from one generation to the next. Annual plants include several garden flowers such as cosmos, peonies and geraniums along with vegetables and wildflowers.

Within the garden center at Whispering Hills is a varied selection of both rare and popular annuals that are ready to enhance landscapes of any shape and size. From grasses, and flowers to vegetables and herbs, you’ll find them here!

Trees

Whispering Hills carries a vast and varied selection of coniferous and deciduous trees that are ready for delivery and planting by our experienced team. They’re available in containers or in ball-and-burlap arrangements, depending upon size. We utilize pea gravel in our nursery to ensure our stock receives proper and consistent hydration. Even though it’s a process that can be time-consuming, it keeps our trees healthy and always ready for planting.

Shrubs

Shrubs are woody, relatively small plants with multiple stems that are usually smaller than most trees. Comparable to an herbaceous perennial, shrubs – after planting – will thrive throughout the growing seasons and then die off in the wintertime. Then, shrubs grow back once again for many years. They’re ideal for borders surrounding a property, creating a privacy screen and adding more height to landscaping. Shrubs are able to maintain their sturdy character for seasons to come.
Whispering Hills features a unique selection of shrubs in pots or ball-and-burlap arrangements.
