Including Uncinia rubra ‘Belinda's Find’
Red Hook Sedge
This toasty-hued New Zealand native is highly treasured for narrow, rich mahogany blades arching up and out from its base to forge a burnished tuft warmed by reddened accents. Tiny, Bulrush-like, hooked flowers are elevated above the tidy, low growing evergreen clump that flourishes in cool moist places but sulks in excessive heat.
Massed at water’s edge or nestled in a cobalt blue container, Uncinia rubra strikes a stunning pose with Bergenia ‘Bressingham Ruby’s textural leaves or the rounded foliage of Lysimachia ‘Aurea’ as a golden counterpoint.
Size: 12"–15" high x 15" wide. Zone 7/8.
Uncinia rubra (G-0474)

A real find for any gardener, this dazzling sport brandishes narrow lustrous bronze leaves with bright cherry red margins. The full-toned blades comprise a small loosely set clump that can accompany broader like-hued foliage, such as Heuchera 'Blackout', for an intriguing color echo or serve as an effective counterpoint against silver and blue-hued leaves. Celebrate 'Belinda's Find's vivacious accents in a courtyard, shady bed or favored container. (uspp#21,972)
Size: 12" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 8.

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. Digging Dog's Early September 2017 Newsletter Link
