FEATURED FLOWER
HOSTA

 

A perennial favorite, gardeners love hostas for their lush foliage and easy care.

Another reason to love hostas? Their endless variety! Native to Northeast Asia, hostas come in more than 2,500 varieties, with a huge range of leaf shapes, sizes, and textures. Come in to Wannemaker’s today and find a host that matches your one-of-a-kind style!

FRESH THINKING
WHAT MAKES LOCAL PLANTS BETTER? 

While some nurseries ship the majority of their plants from other locations, we like to grow most of ours locally. Why? Because, when you ship plants from other locations, you risk exposing them to big changes in temperature and climate, which can damage the plants.

Local plants are healthy plants—that’s why we grow 90% of ours right here in the Midwest. Find a plant by clicking here.
