We grow over 200 hydrangeas in our wooded garden. Every plant is unique and full of personality. We selected some of our favorites for you, from tried-and-true 'Twist and Shout' to several amazing crosses amongst some of the most beautiful and hardy hydrangeas. Oakleaf hydrangeas and paniculatas are just as versatile landscape favorites as they are hardy. We love, love, love our hydrangeas, and we are confident you will love them, too!
We have too many varieties to list individually. Click here to see the plant information for each hybrid. The list will continue to grow, so check back with us often.
Limelight, Phantom, White Diamond, oh my! They are getting ready for late spring.
Their blooms are undeniably beautiful. The variety is so large anyone will find something to fall in love with, from deep red to creamy yellow, from classic red to jazzy variegated, from velvetty smooth to frilly ruffled. Once established, camellias are essentially care free and throw an eye-catching show when most of other plants are asleep, ranging from fall to early spring.
Is it magnolia? Is it camellia? Is it made of porcelain? This lotus-like soft pink bloom was love at first sight for Seyoung. Elegant yet mysterious, Magnoliaeflora is not only historic (since 1886), but also timeless.
This beautiful creamy yellow formal double bloom developed by Dr Walter Homeyer in 1986 of Macon, GA is thought to be one of the closest to yellow of any of the japonicas. Color ranges from shades of antique cream and soft yellow to more yellow. The later it blooms, the more yellow the flowers. The contrast between the creamy, soft yellow and the deep, dark green foliage is remarkable.
Baptisia makes imposible possible - both beautiful and indestructable! This attractive, delicate-looking perenial is one of the hardiest, deer-resistent plant you will own.
Pale blush pink with one or more red stripes. Large to very large semidouble with occasional rabbit ears.
Deep pink, almost red. Large semi-double on vigorous bushy growth.
Camellia Sasanqua. Developed by Athens Wholesale Nursery, Bob's Supreme is named after Mr. Bob, the nursery owner's father-in-law who was instrumental getting the nursery started. We love the delicate, pale pink flowers with a touch of bright pink.

The sweet narcisus-like scent of Daphne Odora wafts in the air in the middle of the winter. Native to Seyoung's home country Korea, vigorous clusters of pink or white blooms on glossy, green or variegated, round edged foliage offers sensory feast while ground is still cold.
Welcome to the world of unique, head-turning, intoxicating, winter-blooming Edgeworthia! Creamy yellow flower heads open up masse of bright yellow florets on the tip of the branches in winter, and the blooms stay on almost 8 weeks releasing intensely sweet fragrance! Great accent plant and a conversation starter. We love pairing edgeworthias with hydrangeas and azaleas.
This Sweet Tea (cross between Double Mint and Pinwheel) seedlings have too many cool factors to list!
Do you have a garden space that receives full sun? Try these color popping, not so demanding, head-turning, beautiful shrubs and perenials.
"I've never seen a nandina plant this bright red before!" This is the first comment we receive from almost everyone, including ourselves. The photo just doesn't do justice! Developed for the bright red in winter and bright green in summer, along with its compact nature, this beauty instantly won Seyoung over, who used to distance herself from nandinas.
You love loropetalum for its deep red, evergreen foliage, bright pink/red blooms, and its resilience. But you worry it may take over your garden. Here's the solution for you: even more compact than it's friend Crimson Fire, low-braching, small, deep colored leaves, essentially care free and maintenance free boarder plant with year-round color!
This delicate beauty makes what's impossible possible: beautiful and indestructable at the same time! Deer resistent, heat/drout tolerant baptisia is one of our trust worthy plants in our pollinator garden.
