The ‘Habitat Hero’ Birdwatcher Pre-Planned Garden will delight gardeners who enjoy watching birds feed and flit from plant to plant. Carefully selected, this collection of plants will draw and benefit both songbirds and hummingbirds, as well as butterflies and other insect pollinators.
Honored with the 2014 Green Thumb Award, the garden was created by renowned garden designer Lauren Springer Ogden of plantdrivendesign.com. Designed specifically for the Rockies but well-suited for many climates, the garden is a mix of 15 perennials, shrubs, and ornamental grasses.
The garden comes with 15 plants including: 1 each of Agastache rupestris, Dakota Sunshine Maximilian's Sunflower (Helianthus), Straight Up Red Texas Yucca (Hesperaloe), Munstead Violet English Lavender, Select Blue Nepeta, Red Rocks Penstemon, Compact Pineleaf Penstemon, Prairie Blues Little Bluestem Grass, Ultra Violet Salvia, Orange Carpet® Creeping Hummingbird Trumpet (Zauschneria), Giant Sacaton Grass (Sporobolus wrightii), Pawnee Buttes® Sand Cherry (Prunus), Crandall's Clove Scented Currant (Ribes) and 2 each of Blonde Ambition Blue Grama Grass. We reserve the right to substitute a plant with similar attributes.
Garden covers a 7' wide x 12' long (84 sq. ft.) area and comes complete with planting diagram, care instructions, and maintenance guide. 5" Pot sizes. This garden will grow in zone 5b as well as USDA zones 6-8.
The Habitat Hero Birdwatcher garden is the result of a collaboration between High Country Gardens, Habitat Hero (a project of Audubon Rockies) and Plant Select®. A portion of the proceeds of the Birdwatcher garden will go to the Habitat Hero project.
