I found this online nursery when I was looking for Lobelia x gerardii 'Vedrariensis,' commonly known as purple Cardinal flower. She had some still available in July, so I ordered 3 of them, and I also got 1 Lobelia Cardinalis. Despite it being very hot when I ordered, all plants arrived looking good, but something happened with 2 of the purple Cardinal flowers. It was strange: They got mushy and completely dissolved away despite my efforts to save them. I may have initially given them too much water, but I let her know right away when they started to look bad, and I got excellent customer service with lots of helpful information, so I decided to do a second order. I ordered 2 Agastache aurantiaca Apricot Sprites and one Salvia guaranitica (I guess accepted botanical name is now S coerulea and also known as Blue Anise Sage), which spreads by underground runners and has beautiful blue blooms. With my second order, she sent 3 replacements for the purple Cardinal flowers (in case the 3rd original succumbed to whatever happened to the other 2), and this time there were no problems. Again, the plants arrived healthy and looking great. All were planted in the ground and every one of them has grown and remains healthy. The roots were especially impressive. The plants were well rooted but not rootbound at all. The plants were all good sized and all have bloomed for me. I have purchased plants from different local nurseries and stores, but I can honestly say that these plants are the healthiest I have received yet. I highly recommend Gardens in the Wood of Grassy Creek and plan to order what I can from there next year. Pictures are blooms on one of the purple Cardinal flowers and the other is one of the Agastache Apricot Sprites.

I got two very nice plants, but I goofed and bought the wrong ones because they were zone 9 and above. This year I will buy some hardy ones.
I got two 1-gallon pots for $8.00 each. Very nice plants.Thumb of 2012-12-28/virginiarose/cae914

Gardens in the Wood is a small nursery in the mountains of North Carolina that specializes in hard to find perennials, particularly species perennials, and native wildflowers - just the place for the serious plant collector. The variety of plants is interesting, and they are healthy, a good size, and reasonably priced.
