Winter Interest

Brrr! It's cold outside. Did you know there are plants that embrace the cold? Even during the cool, gray days of winter you can  brighten your containers and hanging baskets with the use of  hardy plants.

Consider using pansies, violas, heuchera, and hellebores to add warmth to your garden. Even on chilly days, hardy grasses, cyclamen, and snowdrops can enliven your plantings.

So as temperatures dip, take advantage of our great selection of plants. As an added bonus, these plants that add life to your containers in winter months can be transferred to other areas of your garden when the warmth of spring returns!

      Hi Monique!

      Great question. We typically wait for the overnight temperatures to consistently reach 50 degrees before bringing in geraniums. Typically this happens around mid-April, but we never know what the weather will do!

      Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates.

        Do you have Limnanthes douglasii? Also known as the poached egg flower.

          Hi Donna,

          Thanks for the question. We do not currently have Limnanthes in stock and haven’t for several years. I would encourage you to continue checking with other nurseries or look for seeds online or in catalogs.

          When do you usually get in your new Guinea impatiens. Sonic variety. Can we pre order.

            Using Impatiens in your garden is a great idea as we practice patience during this challenging time. Sonic Impatiens will be available in the nursery at the beginning of May. If you’d like to make a request for specific colors, I’d be glad to assist you in working to match your style needs. -Kim

      This is a beautiful variety; however, we haven’t seen it available from our growers.

      Thanks for bringing this plant to our attention.

    Do you still have a planted container contest amongst your staff that you then show to the public with the container plants available for sale? If so, when does that usually take place?

      Thank you for inquiring about Wells Medina’s Nursery Container Contest. The contest which generates creative ideas from our talented staff takes place in July. Watch our website for the exact dates and come vote for your favorite container. Fortunately, the beautiful containers are on display for a few weeks after the votes are tallied.

    When are your verbenas – specifically Chambray Blue and purple – and red Gardenmeister fuschias available?

      You are inquiring about two beauties! The Gardenmeister will be coming in a few weeks. We will keep our eyes open for this specific verbena and hopefully will receive it by the time the fuchsia arrives. Feel free to call us to ensure ‘Chambray Blue’ has arrived in the nursery!
