March Blooms At Logee’s Greenhouses

Here is what’s in bloom at Logee’s this month. Many of these mother plants can be grown at home in containers inside during the winter and then moved outside onto a patio or in a garden for the warm weather of summer.

Come take a look.

Royal Jasmine, one of the most popular Jasmines we grow.

Succulent Dish Gardens, easy to grow and require very little water.

Always lots of Succulent dish gardens ready for gift giving.

Ponderosa Lemon blossom

Ponderosa Lemon, this one is about the size of a baseball.

Pink Powder Puff or calliandra emarginata always has a mesmerizing presence.
