Sarcococca

Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis partial shade  shade lover

This superb Himalayan denizen brings evergreen elegance and heavenly winter fragrance to a shady locale. Crafting a low well-groomed textural ground cover, slowly creeping stolons sprout 18 in. stems clad in lustrous dark green narrow leaves. Copious, tiny white flowers and round blue-black fruit heighten allure.

Tailor-made for hedging, entrance ways or the woodland garden, Dwarf Sweetbox keeps deer at bay, appreciates regular watering, and an annual shearing to maintain its dashing appearance.

Blooms March – April.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

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.

“We ordered a half-dozen Bergenia 'Bressingham White'.... Not only did they arrive in tip-top shape, but they also are thriving this spring.”
