Galtonia

Summer Hyacinth

The most enduring trophy of Francis Galton, an explorer and authority on Southwest Africa, may be the summer Hyacinth, which blooms when so many perennials are past their prime. These bulb-forming plants are happiest in rich, well drained soil and need moderate water in the summer.

Galtonia viridiflora full sun  partial shade

Named for its unusual lime-green flowers, which bloom earlier than those of Galtonia candicans, this species can accent the color and texture of Campanula ‘Kent Belle’.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 3' 0" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Galtonia viridiflora (P-0297)

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

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.

Customer Comment:

“I don't know how you folks do it, but the plants were in immaculate condition, cool and slightly damp upon arrival without a leaf out of place!  ...Digging Dog deserves high praise for being able to accomplish such a feat from one sizzling hot coast to another.”
