Plant List

We were lucky to have a fabulous team who helped us design and plant our garden- Tom Cooney, Leslie Needham, and Andrea Spunberg. They selected species that are native, beautiful, and of course that support the pollinators. A plant list is included below.  Our garden is ever changing so this list is not exhaustive, but it includes most varieties. 

To sourced a lot of our plants from Pleasant Run in Allentown NJ, which has a wide selection but sells wholesale only. We also recommend Shore River Gardens in Manasquan (ask for Richard Mohr), Sickles Market in Red Bank, and Molzons in Lincroft.
