Including

Saponaria

Soapwort

Naturals for the rockery or a well drained border, their paired leaves promise a lengthy profusion of flowers in showy clusters. These low growing European charmers like a lean soil.

Saponaria lempergii Max Frei

Pretty loose bouquets of pure pink, inch-wide blossoms blanket ‘Max Frei’s noninvasive mass of slender and shiny green leaves nearly all summer long. Let this superlative Swiss hybrid spill over the edge of a bed, beautify a rock wall, or act as a colorful, small-scale ground cover.

Blooms June–October.

Size: 12" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Polish Soapwort
Saponaria oliviana

Nestled on tidy, tight green evergreen cushions of very thin, succulentlike foliage, the myriad, nearly stemless blooms in ravishing rose-red hues stage an unbeatable display. Tuck Polish Soapwort into a crevice and you’ll soon see why this pumilio and caespitosa hybrid is touted as one of the most superb, freely flowering additions for the rockery.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 3"–4" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
