Taxus

Taxus media ‘Bonnie Green Mound’ full sun  partial shade

Honored for their longevity since ancient times, Yews have always conveyed classic elements of design. Their amazing versatility affords an array of styles—topiaries, hedges or au natural—which easily enhances any garden scheme. Closely related to the popular Taxus ‘Densiformis’, this tidy verdant Taxus is distinguished by a fine texture, a compact rounded form becoming more dense with age, bright green needles and some drought tolerance once established.

We envision the evergreen Bonnie shaped into globes or bullets standing like sentinels, contrasted against silvery Teucriums or punctated amid boxwoods for a green-on-green textural contrast—all vignettes guaranteed to provide high drama.

Size: 3' 0"–5' 0" high x 4' 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.
