Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips'
Hot Lips Sage is an herbaceous evergreen perennial, low maintenance, but absolutely lovely! It is a good choice for attracting bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone as the leaves are aromatic, something deer find unappealing, but the rest of us enjoy!
This hummingbird magnet can be grown as a bedding plant or will do well in an outdoor pot or container. Hot Lips is a hot seller & is in stock, right now. Visit the store or call 206-367-1950 asap for easy curbside pickup!
Make Your Backyard Part of Nature's Best Hope
For decades, most strategies for promoting conservation have been negative, gloomy and depressing…full of recommendations that required sacrifices to our quality of life. They demand drastic behavior changes now for some unforeseen long-term benefit in the future.
In his book, Nature’s Best Hope, Dr. Tallamy shares his revolutionary approach to making our planet a better place…while instantaneously adding to our quality of life…without sacrificing anything!
As illustrated in his book, Dr. Tallamy’s vision is based on using native landscaping to create “Homegrown National Parks” in our own yards, around our offices, in our parks and along our roadways. These beautiful new landscapes will immediately enrich our quality of life with gorgeous scenery, singing birds, beautiful butterflies and the ever present sights and sound of nature.
The key to having a vibrant homegrown habitat starts with a diverse and native landscape, and Nature’s Best Hope is the handbook that provides the motivation and information to empower every landowner to take action.
North America has over 44 million acres of turf grass waiting to be re-born into a wonderland of natural beauty and life. It will require lots of action…but as one of the most persuasive voices in conservation, Dr. Tallamy and his book are sure to rally an army of volunteers ready to carry out one of the great conservation projects of our time.
If you’re concerned about doing something good for the environment, Nature’s Best Hope is the blueprint you need. Shop now for your copy of this powerful book! Call us for easy curbside pickup: 206-367-1950!
