Bouteloua gracilis ‘Blonde Ambition’ full sun

Taller and more energetic than the species, 'Blonde Ambition's dense finely hewn tufts provide a blue-green foil for cut-flower-perfect inflorescences, which grow at 90° angles and summon our attention well into winter. The large chartreuse seed heads broadcast eye-catching platinum blonde shades once they mature, waving like splendid flags atop stiff 2 ½ ft. slender stalks. Discovered by David Salmon of High Country Gardens as a chance sport in a Santa Fe, New Mexico garden, this tough heady grass struts golden brown, orange and red foliar autumn colors and shimmers when interwoven with Sesleria and flanked by Hydrangea paniculata 'Mega Mindy'. (pp#22,048)

Blooms June–November.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' high x 2-1/2'–3' wide; hardy to zone 4.

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!
