Marrubium supinum

Marrubium

Horehound

Our selections emphasize pearly flanneled leaves and tidy unflappable habits that readily acquiesce to hot, dry desolate sites. Well-drained soil ensures Horehoundís prosperity, while other drought tolerant plants such as Oregano, Thyme and Lavender make ideal companions.

Marrubium supinum full sun

Soft-as-velvet, crinkle-edged and reminiscent of scallop shells, the diminutive rounded leaves are ash green on top and a fuzzy frosted celadon below. Tightset textural foliage and downy white stems weave a low, pearl-hued cushion-like mat that stages leafy flower stems with whorled, small rosy mauve blooms. Possessing an unwavering tenacity, this good-looking evergreen ground cover cavorts throughout southern Spain and northwest Africa, and can charm a niche in the rockery or along a path in your garden.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 10"–12" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
