Many of our customers are unaware of the line of low cost perennials that we grow here at Art Knapp Garden Centre and then sell as MAURY’S BEST BUYS. These are plants that are well known, they perform well in all landscapes and we can offer them at very good prices. We have built two new greenhouses to accommodate and expand our production and our soil is custom designed to facilitate and produce healthy perennials.
Stella d’Oro daylily is our number one daylily and for good reason. It is a compact grower that gets to only 14 in in height and it is a rebloomer, something that all gardeners are looking for in their gardens. I find that it blooms most of the summer and looks great with many of the ornamental grasses we offer.
Iris Sibirica Caesar’s Brother is a spring bloomer with dark blue blossoms. This iris forms a grass like clump that looks good in the landscape even when it is not in bloom. It grows to about 36 inches in height, it makes a great vertical specimen in the landscape.
Late June and July are the time for Shasta Daisies, they have cheery white blooms and are so hardy in the Kamloops region. Our Best Buy selection is called Becky, it grows to about 3 feet and is a must in any Xeriscape garden.
A great summer to fall planting combination is Korean Feather grass and Autumn Joy Sedum, they can be mass planted for spectacular fall colour.
We did not forget the shade garden, we have a selection of Hostas like the variegated Frances Williams and the large leaved Elegans. Plant them with some good organic material like the Home and Garden Perennial mix and some Transplant fertilizer and they will respond by putting on a good show this summer and fall.
We are proud to offer our home-grown perennials to you while they are at their absolute prime. They are sold in one-gallon pots and start at $7.99. Truly a great deal and locally grown!
