Dicentra ‘Margery Fish’  partial shade  shade lover
Dicentra  Margery Fish

With charm to spare, alabaster heart-shaped “lockets”, each inscribed by a small pink mark gracefully dangle from pendulous, branched sprays atop a soft-looking ferny hummock. This choice evergreen perennial easily naturalizes given a cool moist location, the fernlike delicacy of its deeply divided, smoky blue leaves belying their vigor.

Unparalleled in the shade garden, ‘Margery Fish’ becomes summer dormant when the soil is too dry, can be planted as a lacy counterpoint to Tiarella ‘Mint Chocolate’ or cut for a sterling addition to a bouquet.

Blooms April–May & again in fall.

Size: 10" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dicentra spectabilis ‘Gold Heart’  partial shade  shade lover
Dicentra spectabilis Gold Heart

Hailing from the Pope’s Hadspen Gardens in Somerset, England, this Dicentra’s artful golden mounds of dissected ferny leaves will light up the shady corners of your garden. Nodding heart-styled rose pink flowers line long, one-sided arching racemes above spectacular glowing foliage that is more yellow in bright shade and transforms to lime green in deeper shade.

‘Gold Heart’ can be massed with blue flowering Pulmonaria ‘Highdown’ and Anemone nemorosa ‘Vestal’ for sparkling color and contrasting foliar textures.

Blooms April – May.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
