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' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 8.

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' wide; hardy to zone 9.

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!
