Summer to Fall Color
The end of Summer can’t beat our Perennials Department! Homestead Gardens continues to receive fresh, colorful perennials on a regular basis to satisfy our customers’ summer planting needs. From Maryland native perennials, to ornamental grasses for late summer and fall color, and of course, perennials to attract butterflies, Homestead has the plants that will thrive in your unique garden conditions.
Give yourself the gift of fall planting… As the days get shorter and air conditioners give way to open windows, we find ourselves smack dab in the middle of the best planting time of the year! In addition to the break from summer heat, there’s more that makes fall such an ideal time to plant.
Perennials planted now will benefit from warmer ground temperatures and continue to grow roots all winter, resulting in bigger, beautiful plants bursting with color come springtime. Even more, these plants will be easier to care for next year as they will have become well established, mature plants by then. To increase root mass and help plants establish even faster, Homestead Gardens recommends Espoma Bio-tone Starter Plus.
