With Father’s Day just a few days away I thought it would be fitting to throw out an idea or two that are sure to be a hit with dear old dad. Over the years of operating a garden center I have come to realize that there are certain plants that most men can’t resist. To no surprise to the ladies, these plants are typically coarse, large-leafed creatures that may seem a bit unrefined and ill-kempt in the garden, just like dad.

It all started a couple of months ago when one of my salesmen came by the nursery for his weekly sales call.
