Sunday, May 15, 2011


It was a glorious Sunday afternoon, and we took advantage of the day to drive across to Largo and visit Wilcox Nursery (our very favorite native plant nursery in the Tampa area) to get some muhly grass we'd been wanting for the front yard. Of course, that wasn't the only thing we bought, not by a long shot. Spring is just too tempting of a time to visit a native plant nursery - here's what we ended up coming home with:

  • The white-berried variety of American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana)
  • Necklace Pod (Sophora tomentosa)
  • Twinflower (Linnaea borealis)
  • Button Sage (Lantana involucrata)
  • Georgia Calamintha (Calamintha georgiana)

Look for detailed posts on these in the days ahead, as we settle our new residents into their places!


  1. It sounds like you got some great plants and I look forward to posts and pictures about them.

    Have a great day ~ FlowerLady

  2. Just took a field trip to Wilcox myself, late last month. Love it. Can't wait to see how you site your new treasures.

  3. I used to visit Wilox often when I lived in Pinellas county. They certainly do have a nice selection. Looking forward to your posts on your new plants.

  4. I may have to make the drive over just to find natives. Can't wait to see what you've done with your new acquisitions!
