Cephalaria galpiniana
at Digging Dog

Cephalaria

The most garden-worthy plants of this versatile genus, which includes 65 species of annuals, biennials and perennials, all bearing pincushion flower heads, are valued for their stature and distinctively textured foliage. Amenable and undemanding perennials with a graceful air, our selections work equally well as specimens or as a swath meandering through the landscape.

Cephalaria galpiniana full sun

Cephalaria galpiniana is unique among other species in the genus for its attractive, ferny green basal mound comprised of long, narrow ultra-chiseled toothed leaves and succulent stems. Buoyant creamy yellow pincushion-styled flowers are presented on supple 18 in. green stalks for a carefree summer showing. Smaller statured than its towering cousin, Cephalaria gigantea, this seldom offered perennial can be situated closer to the frontlines, where its relaxed stance and easily melded colors effectively offset broad or gray foliage and bolder-hued flowers.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 18"–2' high x 12"–15" wide; hardy to zone 7.

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!
