Horminum

Horminum pyrenaicum full sun  partial shade

Hailing from the rocky crevices and grasslands of the Pyrenees and Alps in Western Europe, this alpine gem makes a winsome addition to any rock garden, stone wall or steps. Quilted leavesódeep green, scalloped and glossyócomprise a tidy semievergreen rosette that produces dainty upright spires of Penstemon-like violet-hued flowers.

Easily cultivated in a well-drained niche, either lean or rich, Dragon’s Mouth can be massed with other low growing perennials such as Marrubium incanum and Dracocephalum to create a tapestry-styled ground cover.

Blooms July – August.

Size: 8"–12" high x 8"–10" wide; hardy to zone 5.

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.
