at Digging Dog
A hardy and versatile deciduous member of a mostly tropical family, this choice northern Chinese native headlines shiny, deep green pinnate leaves, defined by 9 to 17 serrated leaflets and lovely, white cupped flowers held in large Horse Chestnut-style clusters. A saffron-colored eye deepening to carmine-pink inscribes each sweetly scented, 5-petaled blossom. Come autumn, oval-shaped leathery capsules produce numerous, edible, large black seeds that supposedly taste like macadamia nuts.
Preferring a warm sunny locale, but also abiding a moist shady one, Yellowhorn’s upright and lacy silhouette possesses exceptional drought tolerance.
Size: 12' 0"–18' 0" high x 8' 0"–10' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Xanthoceras sorbifolium (S-0721)

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'
Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!
Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings
Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.
Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early August 2017 Newsletter Link
