Symphytum x uplandicum Axminster Gold


Symphytum x uplandicum ‘Axminster Gold’ full sun  partial shade

With its large and artfully variegated textural leaves, this robust perennial becomes a bold centerpiece anywhere it’s planted. Vibrant lemon-yellows paint broad margins on grayish green arching foliage, a welcome sight especially in the quiet days of early spring. Gradually the distinctive basal mound grows taller, sending up flower stalks with elongated leaves and dainty small clusters of nodding blue blossoms.

Moist soil where it’s sunny, afternoon shade in drier sites, and a good shearing of the lanky stems will keep ‘Axminster Gold’ looking resplendent.

Blooms June – July.

Size: 18" high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Symphytum x uplandicum ‘Axminster Gold’ (P-1624)

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Astrantia major 'Lars' for it's ornate, richly colored blooms, that look great in an arrangement, either fresh or dried. Celebrating bright and cheerful colors, crowns of maroon bracts deliver gorgeous cherry red floral mounds with lighter pink centers. ĎLarsís blooms loll high above broad deep green lobed leaves on slender stems. This energetic Danish cultivar looks a bit like an overly exuberant Italian Flat Parsley and makes an unparalleled up-front cottage-style filler that is easy to care for.
