Aralia cordata ‘Sun King’ full sun  partial shade

Bold, brilliant and tropical-style, this newly introduced phenomenal cultivar was first spotted by Barry Yinger in a Japanese nursery. Large golden yellow compound leaves grow up to 3 ft. long on energetic reddish brown stems, quickly framing a bushy rounded clump that turns lime-green when there’s too much shade. Topped with 2 ft. tall spikes of honeybee friendly small white flowers, ‘Sun King’ promises statuesque beauty wherever it’s planted, be- witches birds with its purplish black berries and enjoys moist well draining sites.

Blooms July–September

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
