FARM ENTRANCE IN EARLY SPRING
Welcome to our gardens and enjoy a step back in time with a visit to this circa 1740 farm with its daylily, hosta and perennial gardens located in the central Massachusetts town of Berlin.  This wonderful flower farm is just an hour west of Boston or a brief twenty minutes northeast of Worcester... and only four miles from the Worcester County Horticultural Society's Botanic Garden, "Tower Hill" (http://www.towerhillbg.org/)... and only four miles from either the Solomon Pond Mall or the Highland Commons Mall (home to the new Cabela's).  We invite you to explore and shop in a tranquil country setting.
We have one of the largest selections of both new and old style Daylily, Hosta and Iris cultivars in central Massachusetts as well as a very large selection of other sun and shade perennials.
 
Our goal is to offer our customers not only a large selection of Daylily and Hosta varieties but also a large selection of flowering sun and shade perennials, many of which are unique and hard-to-find cultivars.  We are located in growing Zone 5 and therefore our plant offerings are hardy for Zone 5 or lower (colder).  The majority of our perennials are offered in one or two gallon pots.
 

For those of you who have been visiting our Farm over the years, you are most likely aware that each year we have expanded upon our sun and shade perennial offerings.... and this year is no exception.  More potted perennials will be offeed this year than ever before.  Listed below are just a few of the unusual, unique and hard-to-find perennials available for 2017: 

Buddleia (Butterfly Bush) 'Wisteria Lane' - has all the classic features such as attracting butterflies, tough and all-summer blooms BUT, with longer weeping flowers in shades of lilac.  When mature, it looks like an arbor of wisteria.

Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' - A Brunnera on steroids, this variety has huge frosted leaves more reminiscent of a Hosta.  Sprays of bright blue forget-me-not flowers hover over the jumbo leaves.

Semperivum (Chicks and Hens) 'Oddity' - has tubular leaves with a tint of dark red highlighting its quilled tips.

Pink Flowered Chinese Cobra Lilies - make a great addition to a shade, hosta or woodland garden.

Hosta 'First Blush' - The world's first red hosta !

Daylily 'Tiger Swirl' - Huge 6.5" triangular shaped flowers are light golden yellow with a pronounced raspberry red eye, 32" tall and fragrant.

From our Ornamental Shrub offerings, a Variegated Mock Orange, Dwarf Bush Honeysuckle and a Black Lace Elderberry - to name but three of some of the beautiful and out of the ordinary ornamental woody plants offered this year. 

Heuchera (Coral Bells) 'Prescious Gems Topiary' - This mini coral bells is a compact plant with small leaves.  Great companion plant in a mini Hosta garden. 

Hardy Male Kiwi Vine 'Arctic Beauty' - This Zone 4 hardy vine produces pink, white and green leaves and makes a beautiful display on mature plants.

The above list of unique and/or unusual perennials offered this year barely scratches the surface of the hundreds of sun and shade perennials available at the farm.
