ABOUT THE NURSERY AND US
The Primrose Path has introduced many new plants in the last 30 years. The owner, Charles Oliver, received the Marcel LePiniec Award for new plant introductions from the North American Rock Garden Society in 1998. Our plants are being marketed by licensed producers such as North Creek Nurseries, Creek Hill Nursery, Gootjes-AllPlant, CNB, Skagit Gardens, PhytaCell Technology, and others. We are located in southwestern Pennsylvania, a region that combines extremes of heat and cold with unreliable summer rainfall and winter snow. Our plant introductions have had to cope with northeastern winters and summers. Our customers report superior survival of potted plants of our selected varieties wintered outside.
AND SELECTION PROGRAM
At the present time our breeding program is focussed primarily on the mid-sized eastern phlox, including species such as P. carolina, P. maculata, P. glaberrima, and P. pulchra. The first of our introductions will be offered for wholesale in summer 2018.
