A remarkable foliage plant with a soft and alluring presence, ‘Longwood Silver’ is equally suited to the border or container. It quickly develops felted, silvery leaves that become greenish gray and more textured with age. Intriguing fuzzy stems seem to glow with a purplish hue that’s echoed in the terminal flower panicles.

Blooms August–October.

Size: 2' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Plectranthus ‘Zulu Wonder’  full sun  partial shade
Plectranthus  Zulu Wonder

With decoratively toothed margins and prominent veins, thick rounded green foliage flaunts sumptuous dark reddish purple flipsides, while the same rich hue suffuses the succulent stems, long leaf petioles and midribs. The stunning foliar contrast is reason enough to plant this south African beauty, but the delightful late season showing of speckled dark lilac flowers on long spires makes it indispensable.

Blooms August–October.

Size: 10" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 9.

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.

Customer Comment:

“As a customer of many years' standing, long before online gardening was even possible, I can testify that the plants from Digging Dog have been consistently healthy and hardy through the years. They are also the biggest plants I've ever received by mail. Enormous root systems!”
