Lace Shrub

Stephanandra

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.

Blooms May – June.

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

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
