Second-year plants in 3 quart pots – $5 each
Limit of 3 plants/customer
I finally got around to some routine maintenance over the weekend and discovered about 20 pots of Elephantopus carolinianus plants that apparently thrive on benign neglect. These second-year plants are in absolutely beautiful shape with their large, lush green leaves. Get them in the ground soon and you will have distinctive pink/lavender flowers to enjoy toward the end of Summer. This plant will also do a little volunteer seeding without being a menace.
Elephantopus carolinianus is one of three species of “Elephant’s Foot” that occur in the Richmond area and this species prefers a relatively shady spot with moist soil. Here is a brief thumbnail sketch and picture of the flowers: http://www.pwconserve.org/plants/elephantsfoot.html
If you only have dry shade and want these flowers, do not despair. You just need to plant a different species – Elephantopus tomentosus. This plant will become available in about 6 weeks.
Due to the pandemic, sales are by pre-order only with contact-free pick-up/payment. To order, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
