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' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
