Epilobium

Epilobium canum ‘Chaparral Silver’ full sun

Set aglow by a brilliant plethora of large trumpet-shaped scarlet blooms, narrow velvet-soft silver leaves densely attire the low fine textured mound. A dazzling hummingbird minion, this native Californian sun-lover appreciates well-drained soil and infrequent pinchings to maintain its tailored slow spreading habit that remains evergreen in milder locales. ‘Chaparral Silver’ cheerfully conquers hot weather plus dry difficult conditions, such as south facing slopes, walls and embankments.

Blooms August–November

Size: 12"–18" high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 7.

Epilobium canum ‘Chaparral Silver’ (P-1882)

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!
