at Digging Dog
A fabulous Dan Hinkley introduction, from a 1998
Sichuan Province collecting trip, False Bugbane sports
slender spikes of dainty white flowers poised above
dapper heart-shaped leathery foliage with a marooninfused
lacquer-like sheen. The low growing evergreen
rosette slowly forms a splendid undemanding ground
cover that is further enhanced by intriguing venation,
softly toothed foliar margins and purplish brown petioles.
Beesia deltophylla belongs to the Buttercup family and
is well-suited for the woodlands or underneath high
canopies, where it glimmers amid companions such as
Corydalis, Cyclamen or Ferns and revels in moist but
not soggy compost-enriched soil.
Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Beesia deltophylla (P-1795)

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! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
