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.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
