An easy-going dwarf Patrinia, this compact Japanese
denizen serves a generous helping of cheery petite yellow
flowers all summer long. The bright blooms are
held in loose clusters, staged well above pinnately cut
broad toothed leaves that shape a tidy rounded deep
green clump. Undaunted by hot humid weather and
appreciative of rich moderately moist soil, P. gibbosa
is a showy contender for mixed borders or cottage
gardens, where it keeps our interest sparked with late
season chartreuse flower bracts.
Size: 12"–18" high x 9"–12" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Patrinia gibbosa (P-1810)

This Korean native is long and slender, like a camel’s neck. Its basal mound of coarse green leaves gives way to thin, branching stems, which hold fragrant sprays of tiny, golden yellow flowers that are great for cutting. The leaves display reddish tints in autumn.
Size: 4'–4-1/2' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Patrinia scabiosifolia (P-0546)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
