at Digging Dog
Native to the eastern Mediterranean, this
clumping member of the Lily family greets spring with
intriguing spirals of tightly wrapped bladelike foliage,
patterned like green candy canes. Emerging from
blue-hued grassy tufts, these leafy flowering spikes
soon become dense with fragrant citron-yellow,
star-shaped blooms, which look striking in drifts
beside Omphalodes ‘Cherry Ingram’ and
Euphorbia ‘Jade Dragon’. Zoë was
the first to discover the hard, marble-sized, green
fruit that appears after the flowers fade.
Size: 2-1/2'–3' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 6.
Asphodeline lutea (P-0361)

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! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
