Boone’s Pick of the Month

Each month Boone, our faithful farm dog, will choose one of his favorite plants from our nursery to feature. The plant feature articles include tips for planting, growing, and continual care.

Boone’s September Pick: Hydrangeas

Boone's Pick - Hydrangeas


Hydrangea (common names hydrangea or hortensia) is a genus of 70–75 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia (China, Japan, Korea, the Himalayas, and Indonesia) and the Americas. At Bruce Nurseries we are currently growing 9 different species of Hydrangeas. Hydrangeas are dependable long-blooming shrubs that are hardy, virtually pest and disease free, and they are easy to grow. Learn more about hydrangeas and what varieties are available at Bruce Nurseries.


Boone’s October Pick: Ornamental Grasses

Ornamental Grasses


Ornamental grasses are great seasonal plants. They are easy to grow, hardy and resistant to most pests. They come in varieties from low 6” mounds of bright blue fescue to huge billowing grasses, such as Japanese Silver Grass that towers up to 12-15 feet. We are currently growing 12 exciting varieties, but we have many more to come in Spring of 2018.



Boone’s December Pick: Holly

IMG_1051As the winter season sets in, the Hollies (Ilex) show their bounty of berries. Boone chose holly as his December pick because you can’t help but notice it’s one of the only plants in bloom this time of year. Currently, at Bruce Nurseries, we are growing over 15 varieties of Ilex, available in all sizes from small to large to meet your landscaping needs.
