Francoa

Francoa sonchifolia full sun  partial shade

Let this long blooming carefree Chilean beauty dress up your garden. Starry, pretty pink flowers with lighter centers and a crimson brush stroke at each petal’s base embellish terminal wands on tall, gracefully canting branched stems. The fit-for-a-bride floral splendor is perfect for arrangements and is grounded by a foot high dark green basal clump of large, succulentlike, stiff durable leaves that are evergreen and wavy-edged, preferring dappled shade or half a day’s sun.

Blooms mid-July to early September

Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers....

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
