Codonopsis

Codonopsis clematidea full sun  partial shade

This twining, dainty member of the Campanula family reveals a quiet beauty and hidden treasures. Inside each nodding, urn-shaped china blue flower is a remarkable tapestry of color: dark purple veins and maroon bands with orange at the base. Appreciative of a cool, well drained site, the upright gray-green clump eventually trails, and should be planted in a raised position above a wall or along garden steps so that you can admire the cloistered bloom colors.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 20" high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Codonopsis clematidea (P-1173)

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
