Macleaya microcarpa ‘Kelway’s Coral Plume’ full sun  partial shade

Equally at home in a cottage garden or a more formal setting, this commanding perennial manifests soft, easy-to-blend colors and a tall leafy presence. Quickly colonizing from a vigorous rootstock, sturdy upright stems are garbed with large, rounded and lobed foliage, gray-green on top, downy white below and cinnamon-hued come autumn. The two-toned leaves sparkle when the wind blows, while above thousands of tiny, copper-pink fluffy flowers converge on stiff slender branches, shaping light dreamy looking plumes. Relishing well drained soil, the Plume Poppy adds an architectural bent to a mixed planting of Sanguisorba ‘Red Thunder’, Euphorbia ‘Excalibur’ and Verbascum ‘Pink Domino’.

Blooms August – September.

Size: 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

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