New York Ironweed

Vernonia

   

Vernonia noveboracensis ‘White Lightening’ full sun  new plant

A flashy new 2014 Jelitto Seeds introduction, this undemanding white blooming version of the New York Ironweed propels erect upright stalks, densely cloaked in serrated lanceolate green leaves, buoying fluffy delicate plumes of narrow-petaled creamy white daisies. Followed by decorative seed heads, the long lasting late-season blooms entice many garden visitors, especially the bees and butterflies, and make bright additions to cut arrangements. ‘White Lightening’s bushy clumping habit readily adapts to variable conditions and can be massed or planted as a striking focal point for a more informal venue.

Blooms August–October

Size: 6' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

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!

Customer Comment:

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
