Looking to add some botanical razzle-dazzle to a hohum shady recess? This mighty variegated vine, introduced by astute horticulturist Dan Banarcik of Chanticleer Gardens, may be your solution. Lustrous deeply serrated dark green leaves flaunt broad golden yellow margins in the spring, which later mellow to a refreshing chartreuse as the weather warms. Iced with lacy white flowers in early summer, the bright deciduous foliage makes a splendid cloak for faithful ‘Firefly’s upright climbing habit. Large Band. (pp#11,038)
Size: 30' high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

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
