Fresh Summer Plants

At Diefenbacher we’re still here carrying on through summer, even though a lot of other suppliers close up shop after the big spring shipments. We grow fresh plants specifically for the season—potted up just a few weeks ago and not repurposed from leftover spring material. Our summer crops are raised with our signature care and attention so they’re lush and healthy to liven up landscapes and retail benches.

For all summer beauty—Serena angelonia

We know that the work goes on long past spring—there are summer holidays and celebrations to prep for, along with the usual repair and refresh of current displays. Our selection includes a range of color choices that are suitable for summer here in Cincinnati. You’ll find the usual suspects plus a few interesting varieties to capitalize on the wow factor.
