Every day is Earth Day here at Groovy Plants Ranch! And we’re hyped to be one of the first garden centers nationally to grow and sell thousands of plants in these cool, nubby brown, biodegradable pots. The pots are made of 100 percent post-consumer material and can easily be torn and tossed in the garden or compost pile.
We’re celebrating CLEMATIS, the queen of climbers, at “Clematis Kerfluffle” on April 11-14 at Groovy Plants Ranch. The weekday event features food trucks and 1,000 premium clematis vines including showy doubles like ‘Taiga’ in frilly purple and white, two-tone favorites like ‘Dr. Ruppel’ in candy cane pink with white, and giant bloomers like ‘The First Lady’ with plate-sized flowers – all grown on site at our destination plant store and nursery.
Botanically known as Paeonoia, peonies are native to Asia, Europe and Western North America. Their history goes back to ancient days where they once were China’s national flower and bred in its imperial courts. The flower’s popularity spread to Japan then eventually France and England. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, they began taking off in the United States.
