Ballota

Ballota pseudodictamnus full sun  partial shade

White woolly, rounded 1 in. leaves and furry stems, soft as chamois, steal the show here. Though the tiny white blooms are insignificant and should be sheared off to maintain an appealing bushy, yet compact form, Ballota sparkles against deep greens and bronzes. Acquiescent to drought, salt spray and high winds, it begs good drainage and protection from excessive winter wet. This illuminated Mediterranean mint makes an excellent choice for borders, banks and rock gardens and was once prescribed by Dioscorides as an antidote for the bite of a mad dog.

Blooms July – August.

Size: 18" high x 18" 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!
