at Digging Dog

Lavandula

Lavender

In the Middle Ages, Lavender was a chief ingredient in the famous “Four Thieves” vinegar, and today no classic sachet or potpourri would be complete without it.

We use Lavenders in every garden we design. Dependable and drought tolerant, their strikingly handsome flowers, whether white or blue, pink, violet or purple, offer a heady aroma and an upright spiky look, while the foliage forms a pleasing mound during the off season. In the herb garden, border or rockery, they combine well with grasses, perennials or other shrubs. If the plants are cut back in late June, many cultivars will produce a second bloom in autumn.

Lavandula x intermedia ‘Phenomenal' ('Niko') ™’ full sun

This remarkable 2012 introduction from Peace Tree Farms is being touted as one of the best Lavenders on the market after undergoing extensive trialling throughout the country. A Lavandula ‘Grosso’ offspring, it’s large, uniform habit exhibits exceptional winter hardiness, an impressive ability to withstand heat and humidity plus excellent disease resistance. Symmetrically arranged, staunch upright stems cloaked in attractive silver-green foliage bolster a fragrant showing of 5 in. long rich blue-violet spikes atop lengthy flower stalks. Splendid in dried or fresh bouquets, ‘Phenomenal’ can be hedged or added to perennial borders and Mediterranean plantings, while its heavily scented leaves and blooms produce high quality oil and culinary seasonings.

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.
