Buxus sempervirens ‘Blauer Heinz’ full sun  partial shade

Applauded as one of the species’ premier forms, this good-looking chance mutation of Buxus sempervirens ‘Suffruticosa’ was discovered by its namesake in Germany’s Herrenhausen Royal Garden in the late 1980s. Hardier than other sempervirens, the distinctive dwarf habit assumes a rounded, strictly upright and compact shape with densely set small shiny evergreen leaves, sporting unique frosted blue-green hues. A dapper first-class choice for low borders, diminutive hedges, rock work and pots, ‘Blauer Heinz’ favors adequately moist, well-drained soil and requires little pruning or maintenance.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

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.
