Strobilanthes attenuata
at Digging Dog

Strobilanthes

Strobilanthes attenuata full sun  partial shade

With Salvia-like blue-violet flowers gracing a soft looking bushy mound, Strobilanthes attenuata is found in northern India and is sadly rare in cultivation. Vividly colored, curved tubular blooms populate dense spikes for months, while opposite, fuzzy gray-green leaves line well branched stems. Mounding and widespreading, this attractive, easy-to-care-for perennial imparts cool, composed hues, just right for juxtaposing against the warm yellows of Rudbeckia paniculata.

Blooms August–October.

Size: 2'–2-1/2' high x 3-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 9.

Strobilanthes attenuata (P-1323)
Each $7.50

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:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
