Francoa sonchifolia full sun  partial shade

Let this long blooming carefree Chilean beauty dress up your garden. Starry, pretty pink flowers with lighter centers and a crimson brush stroke at each petal’s base embellish terminal wands on tall, gracefully canting branched stems. The fit-for-a-bride floral splendor is perfect for arrangements and is grounded by a foot high dark green basal clump of large, succulentlike, stiff durable leaves that are evergreen and wavy-edged, preferring dappled shade or half a day’s sun.

Blooms mid-July to early September

Size: 2'–3' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Digging Dog's plant of the week...Hydrangea paniculata 'Unique' (S-0348)!- Everyone here at DD loves this hydrangea for its glamorous, late season beauty queen appeal. Left to its own designs, this vigorous Hydrangea has a natural upright and arching form, but it also responds well to pruning, making ‘Unique’ an effective choice where space is scarce.

The immense flower heads are spectacular and abundant, and true to name are unique in shape, being quite broad at the base and bluntly rounded at the tip. They begin the season a creamy white and gradually darken to a buff pink.
