Equisetum

Equisetum hyemale var. Robustum full sun  partial shade

Boasting a strong architectural appeal, this California native has sturdy bamboolike stems and is much taller than the species. The deep green stems are divided by brown joints and, because they contain silica, were once used to polish tin and wood. Makes an excellent container plant, in or out of water.

Size: 5' 0"–7' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
