  • Goldfish Plant 3
    Quick shop

    Pre-order for spring!  It's winter and the temps are just too cold to ship these little darlings until mid April. 

    Perhaps the most beloved item at the Perkins Cove Pottery Shop, the Goldfish Plant (scientific name: Nematanthus nervosus) features glossy leaves and little orange flowers that look like goldfish.

    Care instructions: The Goldfish Plant prefers to be tightly pot-bound and dry in between watering. A spot with bright light is great, but not where it will receive constant, direct sunlight. Best to leave in the 3" pot for a good while, only transplant to a slightly larger pot.

    "Just flipping through the pages of Quiet Beauty: The Japanese Gardens of North America will instantly lower your blood pressure."—The New York Times Book Review


    Quiet Beauty: Japanese Gardens of North America is an extraordinary look at the most beautiful and serene gardens of the United States and Canada. Most Japanese garden books look to the gardens of Japan. Quiet Beauty explores the treasure trove of Japanese gardens located in North America. Featuring an intimate look at twenty-six gardens, with numerous stunning color photographs of each, that detail their style, history, and special functions, this book explores the ingenuity and range of Japanese landscaping.

    Japanese gardens have been part of North American culture for almost 150 years. Quiet Beauty is a thought-provoking look at the history of their introduction to the world of North American gardening and how this aspect of Japanese culture has taken root and flourished.
