Rock Bellflower

Symphyandra

Symphyandra zangezura full sun  partial shade

With a name that sounds like a fairy tale character, this rare Campanula cousin has charm to spare. Broadly flared bells painted in the prettiest shade of lilac dangle on delicate branching, dark leafy stems. Prominent anthers, dainty recurving petals and narrow ribbed buds enhance the profuse summer-long display, while a winsome bed of green, coarsely toothed, soft hairy leaves lolls below.

Flourishing in fertile well draining soil, but pouting during hot humid weather, the Rock Bellflower can be tucked into the rockery, a trough, or along a pathway where its endearing looks will surely bring a smile to your face.

Blooms June – August.

Size: 10" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Symphyandra zangezura (P-1227)

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
