This week in the garden – vol 55

Pass-along plants are FREE

The remaining pass along plants are FREE.  Please take a plant or two or three home with you. Please consider purchasing an American Beauty Berry to benefit our Scholarship Fund. Original price was $15, now $10!

Small pink blooms in summer are followed by clusters of brilliant fuchsia berries in the fall. Berries color in early October and remain until they are eaten by birds and small mammals in late November. Light yellow fall color.  Great ornamental shrub for the garden. Berries attract songbirds in the fall. Also provides cover for birds and small mammals.
