Blue Goose Leaf
Our selections of this enchanting,
ground-hugging evergreen from New Zealand feature
diminutive leaves with a ferny delicacy. Lifting on short
stalks above the foliage, globe-shaped seed
heads—small thornless “burrs”—are colored a brownish red. Adapted to almost any well drained location, plant it as a cover for your bulb bed, situate it along pathways, perch it on a garden wall or let it creep around paving stones.
Pairs of tiny, silvery blue scalloped leaves and
bronze trailing stems stay close to the ground, casting
cool, fine textured accents on the sage green,
ruffle-edged foliage of Diascia ‘Blackthorn Apricot’ or
the glossy greenery of Dracocephalum ‘Fuji White’.
Size: 6" high & spreading; hardy to zone 6.
Acaena saccaticupula (P-1174)

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
