Patrinia


Patrinia gibbosa  full sun
Patrinia gibbosa

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.

Blooms JuneľAugust.

Size: 12"–18" high x 9"–12" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Patrinia scabiosifolia  full sun
Camel's Cover
Patrinia scabiosifolia

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.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 4' 0"–4-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Patrinia scabiosifolia (P-0546)

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.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
