Luzula ‘Ruby Stiletto’
at Digging Dog

Luzula

Wood Rush

Luzula comes from the Latin word meaning “glow worm.” These graceful rushes earn their name for the way a soft, downy hair, which covers the margins of each blade, catches and holds dew. As the morning light strikes the moistened leaves, they glisten. The handsome leafage vitalizes a garden setting with its textural infill.

Durable as a ground cover and at home in various soil types, Luzula is best when planted in drifts.

An eye catching new selection from seed collected in the mountains of British Columbia by plantsman Graham Ware, ‘Ruby Stiletto’ lives up to its name during the colder months when sumptuous ruby hues emblazon its blades. A compact hummock of spry and slender grassy green foliage in the warm seasons, this gem weaves an engaging, textural tapestry when planted en masse with drifts of Deschampsia ‘Goldgehänge’ and Molinia ‘Moorflamme’.

Size: 12" high x 8" wide; hardy to zone 5.

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.
