Outdoor Plant Inspiration 2018

Oh spring, where are you?  Perhaps you need a little outdoor plant inspiration for the 2018 season.  Even though the weather hasn’t been ideal, we are on the countdown to PLANTING SEASON, with less than a month until Memorial Day.  Step into the Waukesha Floral greenhouse, and you’ll see the sunshine has been just a little bit brighter, the sun a little higher in the sky every day, and this more abundant sunshine is reflected in the growth and blooming progress in the plants.   Start drooling over these beautiful plants in our greenhouse… they could be yours with just a trip down or a phone call….
