A Wide selection of Roses, Peppers, Tomatoes, Pots and Planters!
This week, we have a great selection of Colorado-adapted, healthy, plants.
Choose from pepper and tomato plants, herbs, flowering annuals, native and non-native perennials, shrubs, trees, fruiting bushes and fruit trees. Plus the pots and planters you’ll need this season.
Since 1992, we have operated our nursery organically, and plants are neither sprayed with toxic pesticides nor fertilized with chemical fertilizers.
ALL OF THE PLANTS AT HARLEQUIN’S GARDENS HAVE BEEN FREE OF NEONICOTINOID PESTICIDES SINCE 2015.
Quantities are limited.
This week’s highlights – David Austin Roses Many own-root roses are being added to our shelves this week, including David Austin Roses. Arguably the most gifted rose breeder of our time, David Austin has taken the best of heritage roses (fragrance, beauty and health) and combined them with desirable traits of modern roses (repeat bloom, disease resistance and compact size) and combined them to create gorgeous garden plants. We’re bringing out over-wintered plants several times a week, so check frequently for your favorites. We have grown many, and are proud to offer these varieties in 2023: Abraham Darby, Benjamin Britten, The Poet’s Wife, Lilian Austin, Jude the Obscure (grafted), Crown Princess Marguerite, Golden Celebration, Molyneux, Princess Ann, and Tess of the D’urbervilles.
The Poet’s Wife – This own-root rose has large, rich yellow blooms, and is a repeat-bloomer. Fragrance is strong and fruity. It’s a medium-sized shrub, 4′ x 4′.
Abraham Darby – A vigorous shrub with large, cup-shaped flowers in apricot and yellow shades. Rich fragrance. 5’x5′.
Tess of the D’urbervilles – This own-root rose is a compact climber with large, bright red booms, and an Old Rose fragrance. 8′ maximum, a bit shorter here in Colorado.
