Nipponanthemum nipponicum (originally named Chrysanthemum nipponicum) was brought to the United States around the early part of the 20th century by a plant explorer looking for plants in Japan. This plant was found on Japan’s coastline. Gardeners on the East Coast plant it along the seashore because it is salt tolerant. The foliage looks fabulous all summer long, and then when everything seems to be dying down for winter, you’ll have a beautiful surprise in October! At maturity, it can be 3′ high by 3′ wide.
Now is the time to start thinking about any changes you would like to do to your garden, or create a new garden! Winter is the time for planning. Call now for something new to look forward to in Spring!

Crete Area Medical Center’s healing garden was design and planted in 2005-2006 by Forever Gardens.
The summer of 2012 has been the hottest summer on record. Gardeners throughout the country, especially the Midwest have become frustrated with the damage the heat has done to their gardens. Many of the shrubs and perennials in our gardens have trouble with the constant 100 degree days. Watering helped somewhat, but the rainfall we’ve gotten last week, has given some plants a much needed boost!
If you have been thinking about sprucing up your garden, making any changes, or if you are frustrated with the way your garden looks, call Forever Gardens now for a Spring 2013 tune-up. Sometimes just moving or removing some plants, adding some new, different plants can make all the difference in how your property looks. You don’t have to start from scratch, I love working with what you have to make something new!
We also can design an outdoor living area; escape to a beautiful garden oasis right on your own property!
