Codonopsis clematidea
at Digging Dog

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)
Each $8.25

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!

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
