Do you sell plants to the public and if so would you ship them? I don’t live near Austin and I can’t find some of these plants. Or do you know where I can buy them. Thanks so much.

Barbara,
We don’t sell individual plants. We design and install landscapes. Where do you live? Some nurseries will ship plants if the order is large enough.

I lost two of three, three-year-old golden thyrallis this winter. The third shrub is coming back very slowly. The shrubs had been fertilized and mulched in the fall. They were a corner planting with privacy fencing on two sides protecting them from North winter wind. Do you recommend replanting or can you recommend a more cold-hardy shrub to replace the thyrallis.
They were an enjoyed brilliant show in the summer months. I live in the Austin area.

I grew this plant several years ago. It was doing quite well and slowly died. Do you know where in the San Diego area I can purchases this plant? I bought this plant in San Diego, but don’t remember where. It was a great plant.
Thank you, hope you can help. Kathleen Awbrey
