Helianthemum

Sun Rose

Evergreen subshrubs and members of the Cistus family, Sun Roses come from the Mediterranean. Tolerant of drought and salt spray, they exhibit the general hardiness that makes them welcome in a rock garden. Let them cascade over a wall or some other sunny, well drained location.

Tufted with yellow stamens, their fleeting, silky, roselike blossoms provide a luminous and continuous display against small-sized matte foliage. Capable of quick infill, combine the Sun Roses with traditional companions like Lavenders, Euphorbias and Origanums.

Our Featured Plant: Crambe cordifolia

Compelling Crambes!


A study in Paleolithic proportions and high drama, this Cruciferous family member is a sturdy long-lived perennial. Large, coarsely toothed crisp green leaves launch a hefty multi-branched pale green stem, which bolsters an enormous Gypsophila-style cloud of tiny 4-petaled white flowers. Crambe can be utilized as a backdrop or a bold specimen mid-border, plus makes a stunning addition to cut arrangements, fresh or dried. It craves a sunny spot with well-drained average garden soil.

Usher in Summer with June Blooms!


June is an exciting month in the garden. It is a time of transition, a changing of the guard, so to speak, as many early flowering perennials are beginning to fade, while the summer bloomers are taking center stage. I’ve included a handful of perennials, whose beckoning floral or foliar effects usher in summer! 

Happy digging and happy summer from all us Digging Dog Plant Wranglers!
