Cortusa matthioli

Cortusa

Cortusa matthioli ssp. pekinensis partial shade

While its name does little to conjure a pleasing image, this demure perennial’s charm is easily conveyed. Populating the cool, moist streamsides and woodlands of Japan and northern China and closely akin to the Primula genus, Cortusa makes a pretty detail in a shady rock garden.

The dainty umbels are poised on 9 in. stems, spotlighting pendant, bell-shaped rosy purple flowers with white-ringed centers above a low growing, downy soft clump of broadly rounded, incised leaves.

Blooms April–June.

Size: 9" high x 10" wide; hardy to zone 4.

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!
