at Digging Dog
The color of sky and sea, Elymus’s light blue glaucous blades gain intensity as the plant
matures and assumes its delightful skirtlike habit. Older leaves fall outward to cover the base, revealing
the new, upright central growth.
A designer’s dream, Wheat Grass holds its form without the distraction of conspicuous flowers, and is unparalleled in a container or as a specimen for the mixed border against a drift of green Carex
tumulicola. Happiest in coastal areas, this extraordinary blue grass appreciates well drained soil, and light shade in hot climates.
Size: 15" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Elymus magellanicus (G-0475)

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
