We offer a 10% discount on our Weekly Special featuring a plant well-suited for planting that week. Our Weekly Special for May 18th-23rd is Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm'.
Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm' $4
HT:24" SP:20", Upright habit, Late Summer-Fall

Pronounce Rudbeckia 1999
Hardy Rudbeckia provides a profusion of flowers on sturdy, multi-branching stems. Good as a cut flower and a dependable perennial on its own in mass/drifts or in the mixed garden. Compact plant so it shows best when planted in the front-mid section of the garden. As fall shifts to early winter, cones produce seeds that attract birds.

  • Colorscapes Greenhouse and Nursery specializes in garden and landscape plants for Northern Nevada and has been proudly serving Elko, Spring Creek, Winnemucca, Carlin, Wells, and all points in between since 1991. Although we are not a mail-order greenhouse, we know that many experienced, new to the area, and just getting started gardeners like to come out with a list of possibilities. Our Availability List Pages provide pictures and cultural information about the plants we offer. Thanks go out to our gracious clientele that have continued their support over the years. We also saw lots of new faces and hope that you too will be back to shop next season. It is always a pleasure to be around happy, smiling people who love to be around plants, enjoy gardening, and share my enthuasium for both.

    Garden and landscape projects are a continuous effort to develop and improve our outdoor living spaces. Before and after pictures are a way of remembering the event. Start with a plan, even for those weekend projects, and keep at it to the finish. Basically, any advice I can share about developing a landscape is on our Marvel's Corner Page.
    Our long-term goals continue to be:
  • To educate customers so they can be successful, confident gardeners.
  • To provide healthy plants that are grown in and for this area.
