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)

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
