A stellar silvery perennial for the moonlit garden, this tough Mediterranean herb spotlights felted, scalloped and toothed gray-green leaves with white woolly undersides, staged beneath snowy whorled flowers.

Dry, well-drained niches make Horehound prosper, while other drought tolerant plants such as Oregano, Thyme and Lavender make ideal companions. Acquiescent to intense heat and otherwise unflappable, it also has medicinal uses, yielding an essential oil that exhibits strong antimicrobial properties

Blooms June – July.

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!

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
