at Digging Dog
This small shrubby Chinese denizen vaunts a lot of four-season luxe: copious cup-shaped white flowers, fabulous exfoliating bark and handsome toothed dark green leaves, which brandish bronze-toned new growth plus bright crimson fall color. Exquisite camellia-like scented blooms line upward arching branches, while long artful cinnamon-colored strips peel off, revealing a marble-smooth light rosy tan finish beneath. Ideal for a small garden, courtyard, informal setting
or a woodland’s edge, Chinese Stewartia can be ensconced amid Oakleaf Hydrangeas
and skirted by swaths
of Sesleria and Calamagrostis foliosa. A protected, yet somewhat bright abode with acidic well-drained, humus-rich soil ensures its vitality. Grows moderately
Size: 15'–25' high x 10'–15' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Stewartia sinensis (T-0121)

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! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
