Finke Gardens have everything you need and very helpful staff!
Dwarf Blue False Indigo Native, blue, pollinator friendly and will grow in a ditch! That’s one tough and valuable plant for our Nebraska landscape.
Coleus Combinations for Summer Color A simple selection of colorful coleus is an easy choice for summer color but how do you choose coleus combinations when there are so many options? Think about height and sun exposure requirements as included on the plant tags, and choose accordingly. We also like to have a spreading form in the mix. Some people prefer lots of contrasting colors, other combine different forms and textures of the same color. There is no right or wrong combination as long as sun exposure is considered, rather is a matter of color preference. So go wild with color if you like, or mono-tone if that’s more your style - just plan to enjoy a summer of color with coleus.
Calla Lilies Give them a try for beautiful bouquets. Keep them well watered and fertilized and you’ll enjoy the landscape and the tabletop cut flowers all summer.

Thanks to our City for preparedness. See our website for suggestions for replanting that can diversify our urban forest and mitigate the potential for another devastating loss in future decades.

Public Comment Sought on Draft Emerald Ash Borer Plan

Mayor Chris Beutler encourages the public to review and comment on the draft Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Respo...nse and Recovery Plan which was released at news conference today. The invasive beetle has destroyed tens of millions of ash trees in 31 states and in Canada. Beutler said that although EAB has not yet been found in Lincoln, experts say it is probably already here. He said EAB will have a devastating impact on the City's 14,000 public ash trees along streets and in parks and golf courses.

"From the experience of other communities, we know that all untreated ash trees will be dead within a 15-year period from the time that EAB moves in, so the clock may already be ticking," Beutler said. "We also know from other's experience that a proactive response to EAB is the best course of action to avoid an overwhelming number of dead and dying ash trees along streets and on other public property at the same time. Infested ash trees become very brittle, so if we are not proactive, we will see a very dangerous situation develop in our City. Waiting to take action will also be much more costly for taxpayers."

Finke Gardens is proud to partner with Aldersgate to develop their sustainable landscape. Plan to attend the December 9 tree care workshop to learn from their example for our community.

Aldersgate Methodist Church is one-of-a-kind when it comes to reducing its carbon footprint, church leaders say, and they hope others will follow suit.

When Royal Beauty Weeping Crabapple drops its foliage, the glistening red fruit really stands out. This selection is disease resistant and has fruit that persists into the late winter when birds have a feeding frenzy.

An easy to overlook green shrub all summer long, Red Sprite grabs your attention in the fall as the red berries appear and the green foliage drops. This compact selection of Winterberry is well suited to site that stay too wet for most plants.

Fall color with fruit on Purple Beautyberry is a welcome difference to the shrub border of changing foliage colors. Full sun to part shade sites work well for this gem.

If most of your tender plants have moved into the house for the winter you may need some space saving saucers. These rectangular saucers might be perfect for your windowsill and allow several plants to share the drip space.

The blooms of Annabelle Hydrangea fade to tan with a hint of pink and continue to provide textural interest in the fall and winter landscape. Nothing easier to grow than Annabelle Hydrangea in shady settings.
