Lace Shrub


Stephanandra incisa ‘Crispa’ full sun  partial shade

A demure Japanese and Korean denizen, this dense low growing deciduous shrub imparts a quiet elegance that belies its dogged constitution. Downward arching, warm brown slender stems form an interlacing mound guised with crinkled bright green Maple-like leaves and loose clusters of tiny starlike creamy white flowers.

Effective for stabilizing banks and hillsides, and utilized as a fast spreading shrubby ground cover, low hedge, wall drape or foundation plant, ‘Crispa’ offers toasty soft orange and yellow shades in the fall, wards off deer and appreciates moist acidic soil and judicious pruning, either in late winter or late spring.

Size: 12"–2-1/2' high x 12"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
