Variegated Five-Leaf Aralia

Eleutherococcus

Eleutherococcus sieboldianus ‘Variegatus’ partial shade  new plant

Wherever this carefree east Asian native is staged, it quickly matures into an engaging, medium-sized specimen full of panache. Artfully showcasing irregular creamy white margins, Buckeye-style, bright green five-fingered leaves garb numerous upright and arching cane-like stems plus spawn tiny spines at each base..

This hardy deciduous mound struts great fortitude, which readily adapts to a wide range of soil, even dry conditions, plus flourishes in sun or dappled light. The only dilemma you’ll encounter is narrowing down the myriad choices of where to plant Variegated Five-Leaf Aralia: the shade garden, the backside of a perennial or shrubby border or perhaps along the edge of your property as a screen or hedgerow.

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 6' 0"–8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

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.”
