Diascia integerrima ‘Blush’  full sun

The pearly blooms of this recent British selection herald an exciting new color within the Twinspurs. Arising from close-knit, grayish green linear foliage, the wiry 18 in. stems display myriad flowers that open with pinkish hints, and soon pale to nearly white. Let ‘Blush’ colonize a well drained spot atop a stone wall, where its carefree stance brings charm to such plants as Dracocephalum ‘Fuji Blue’ and Antirrhinum sempervirens.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 18" high x 18" & spreading; hardy to zone 8.

From spring until frost, upright and fine textured, green foliage bolsters an abundance of coral pink wands brimming with luscious flowers enhanced by darker pink centers. A stalwart beauty that easily graces an array of sites, ‘Coral Canyon’ can be planted next to Kniphofia ‘Vanilla’ and Phygelius ‘African Queen’.

Blooms June–October.

Evoking images of New Mexico’s plastered adobe walls, the uniquely colored, pale salmon pink flowers with maroon throats offer a head turning, nonstop display for months on end.

Originating from a group of seedlings at High Country Gardens, this sturdy, small-sized gem appreciates a midsummer trim and rich garden soil.

Diascia ‘Langthorn's Lavender’  full sun

Rosy purple masses of small comely blossoms and linear narrow green leaves set this low growing charmer apart from the more commonly known pink and apricot blooming Diascias. ‘Langthorn’s Lavender’s diminutive form can be tucked along the front of the border or into a crevice, where its perky summer-long floral parade, riding atop upright stems, makes a delightful color echo with the plumes of Astilbe c. ‘Pumila’.

Blooms June-October

Size: 8"–12" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
