One of the frustrations of offering little-known cool plants is quite often these plants won’t sell because folks aren’t familiar with them. Here’s a great example from the garden today, the South African spider plant, Chlorophytum columbrianum. This stunning fall bloomer is an incredible perennial, providing a superb form and show in the fall garden. Over a four year period, we only sold 79 plants…less than 20 per year. Unfortunately, these low numbers aren’t enough for us to keep it in production, so this summer, we dumped out the remainder of our crop, and yes, that hurt. So, here’s what you missed. Perhaps in the future, we’ll try again…especially if enough of you say that you like it…let us hear from you.
