at Digging Dog
Native to western Europe and North Africa, this handsome species’ common name comes from toute-saine (heal-all) and refers to the many healing properties the plant was once supposed to possess. Interesting throughout the year, Tutsan is a cure-all for lightly shaded garden areas that need some brightening up. The wine-infused stems and deep green foliage contrast beautifully with cheerful golden yellow flowers in summer, and later with glossy red berries, which eventually turn black. The weight of the fruit causes the branches to arch, giving the plant a relaxed look and making it perfect for shrubby borders.
Tutsan also does well in the sun, planted with Lavenders. In late summer, its colors make a striking combination with Nepeta ‘Wild Cat’ and Buddleja ‘Ellen’s Blue’.
Size: 4' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
