Our scope of services: Perennials/Groundcovers/Native Plants
At Ross Perennial Plant Farm we grow both perennials and perennial groundcovers for the landscape. We grow many perennials native to the South East and many that are beneficial to honey bees, other bees, butterflies and birds.
Our Areas Of Focus: Selection/Customer Service/Environment
Selection: We add new varieties to our inventory list each year. We use not only our own experience with perennials, but we also rely on the knowledge of our customers and other industry professionals to help us select the best perennials for the landscape. We grow a lot of the old tried and true perennials that are champions in the landscape, but we also like to try new varieties.
Customer Service: We have knowledgable staff that will help you with any questions you may have. Your business is very important to us and we want to make sure you have a good experience here and a good experience gardening with our perennials.
Landscapes can be enhanced with the addition of perennials. Foliage and/or blooms can be very showy, but perennials are also beneficial to the environment. Groundcovers help control erosion, keep roots of other plants shaded and reduces he need for mulching. Bees and butterflies feed off the pollen and nectar from the blooms and birds eat the seeds from spent blooms. Frogs and lizards and many other species use the foliage to obtain water and shelter. Here at Ross Farms we like growing perennials that are beneficial to the environment and the wildlife.
We love that so many of our plants are beneficial to Birds, Butterflies and Bees!!!
