Liriope

Liriope spicata ‘Silver Dragon’ full sun  partial shade

A classy low tufted clump of gleaming narrow green blades engraved by bright silver-white stripes distinguishes this fine textured grasslike perennial. Sprouting from underground rhizomes, varnished stiffly arching leaves support soft lavender blooms on erect flower spikes followed by black berries. A luminous choice for edging, the rockery and water side plantings, ‘Silver Dragon’ sculpts a disease resistant dwarf cover that remains evergreen in warmer locales, fends off deer and relishes moderate water, bright shade and protection from cold winter winds and hot sun.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 10"–15" high x 15"–18" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
