Popup Opens In Sausalito

Today is the first day of Wildwood’s Popup in Sausalito. We thought it was time to try an urban location with different gardening challenges.

There’s quite a few maples like one might expect. Also a more coastal selection of plants that could be unexpected. Proteas, aeoniums, ferns, indoor plants, and very cool bonsai.

The space is small so the displays will change daily. Stop by and see what’s growing in Marin

Top 7 Maples For Spring

Fall isn't the only season for leaf color.  Here's seven great maples for Spring color.

Katsura: One of the first maples to leaf out. Orange gold leaves are already open at Wildwood.

Sharp's Pygmy: Dwarfs are always the  first group to open.  Cute green leaves with red tips.

Corallinum:  Bright shrimp pink foliage is a knockout.

Ryusen:  Early to open.  A cascade of light green leaves is a contrast to all other upright greens.

Autumn Moon:  Enjoy fall oranges and golds in Spring.

Hana Matoi:  A combination of light pink and red on delicate lacey leafs.

Shindeshojo:  Fire engine red color is like New England in fall.

Daffodils on Display

The dawn of spring at Wildwood starts with the Daffodils.

They jump out of the ground and pop open with oranges, yellows and creamy flower bursts.  They're a much needed shot in the arm when everything else is still sleeping.  Once they open, we know it's only a matter of weeks before the floodgates of spring open.

Stop by the nursery, pick a bouquet and daydream about spring!

Rolling Out Green Carpet

In preparation for this Spring's star studded plant line up, we're rolling out artificial grass in a new display area!

Today's artificial grass is more life like than ever.  The lawn look a like is maintenance free [some occasional vacuuming] and provides a cooling contrast to hardscapes.  Our rolls come from a football field in San Jose so they're also staying out of the landfill.

Weighing in at 3,300 pounds, the 7' x 50' rolls will be tough to maneuver.  We have confidence they'll be in place for your Spring visit though.
