Green Isle Gardens specializes in growing native uplands plants and plants that attract and are useful to wildlife.  We have retail hours by appointment.  Just give us a call for a tour of the nursery.

Stokes Aster (Stokesia leavis) adds color throughout the season, attracts abundant numbers of pollinators and butterflies, and needs little care.  It's a perfect addition to your landscape.
Coral honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) blooms early in the spring.  Hummingbirds returning from migration refuel on the nectar from the red, tubular-shaped flowers.  This plant is drought-tolerant, evergreen, and easy to grow!

Our new office building is small, but it offers shade, a place to rest, and protection from the occasional cloudburst.

Phyla nodiflora is a terrific groundcover that could easily replace turf grasses in the landscape.  It tolerates both dry and wet conditions, shade and sun, cold and heat, and also serves the needs of pollinators and butterflies.  This plant offers nectar and serves as the larval plant for Buckeye butterflies, Phaon Crescents, and White Peacocks.

Gopher apple (Licania michauxii) is a great groundcover and offers wildlife both flowers and fruit in August.  This year we collected over 50,000 gopher apple seeds for a bumper crop next year.

Adding Green Eyes (Berlandiera subacaulis) to your landscape will encourage butterflies and pollinators to visit.

We now have retail hours by appointment.  Please call for a nursery tour.

This magnificent Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

is attracted to native wildflowers, like this

Stokes Aster blossom. 

New for us and a rare species, Lakeside sunflower (Helianthus

carnosus) prefers moister conditions, and adds color and

interest to a lakefront landscape or a water garden. 

Difficult to propagate, Tarflower (Bejaria racemosa) is an unusual plant for the landscape.  It tolerates drought, cold, and has lovely white blossoms in the spring.  It's called Tarflower because the flowers are sticky to the touch.

The native green Anole (Anolis carolinensis) in his

brown phase is hiding among the leaves of a

Tropical sage (Salvia coccinea) which blooms

all summer long.

The tall bloom spikes of Blazing star (Liatris chapmanii) will turn bright purple in the fall and attract pollinators and butterflies of all sorts.  Planted in mass, it's a gorgeous sight.
