Cortaderia

Cortaderia richardii full sun

Conjuring visions of Victorian grandeur, this majestic New Zealand native boasts a silky, feathered fountain of alabaster-colored, pendulous plumage bathed in subtly bronzed highlights. Loose, arching inflorescences grace the centrally arranged stems, which emerge from elegant, 5 ft. tall evergreen tussocks at varied angles. Toe Toe Grass’s slim, medium green foliage and flamboyant flowers serve as a focal point amid bright-hued perennials in the mixed border, in sunny moist spots at pond and streamside, or in a boisterous bouquet.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 9'–10' high x 8' wide. Zone 7/8.

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!
