Crambe cordifolia

Crambe

Crambe cordifolia full sun  partial shade

As it translates, “cabbage-like, heart-shaped foliage” is accurate but misses the big picture, and we mean big. Handsome, crisp green leaves, each measuring 12 to 14 in. long and wide, form a 2 to 3 ft. mound. A single stem nearly 3 ft. tall hosts a giant spray of tiny flowers, a loose haze of filigree in Paleolithic proportions. When cut, the fragrant blossom works like Baby’s Breath. Dynamic as a specimen or background plant, Crambe adds high drama, even humor, to any situation.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 3' high x 2'–3' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Crambe cordifolia (P-0053)

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!
