<i>Cotoneaster dammeri</i> ‘Coral Beauty’

A more compact habit, increased leaf luster and copious coral-red fruit distinguish this winsome AGM recipient from the species C. dammeri, which hails from central and southern China. Boasting easy-care, year-round appeal, the attractive interlacing mass of stiff slender branches premieres diminutive, 5-petaled sparkling white flowers with purple anthers plus colorful late summer and early winter fruit. Petite, leathery deep green mostly evergreen foliage tinges purple in cold weather. Undaunted by deer, poor soil, dry conditions and erosion, but woeful if the weather’s too hot, long-lived ‘Coral Beauty’ crafts a low-lying woody ground cover for rock gardens, foundations, walls or embankments.

Blooms May–June

Size: 6" – 12" high x 4' 0" – 6' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

<i>Cotoneaster dammeri</i> ‘Mooncreeper’

Sparkling star-like white flowers that are larger than those of the central Chinese species, plus tiny bright red berries dress up the round-tipped prominently veined dark green foliage. Growing as a dense polished ground cover, resourceful ‘Mooncreeper’s narrow ground-hugging red-tinged branches are perfect for massing. This winsome evergreen can be added to a bonsai collection, rock garden, foundation planting or embankment, where it abides deer, poor soil and southeastern humidity.

Blooms May

Size: 4" – 5" high x 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

Our feature plant: Primula vulgaris ssp. sibthorpii

Precious Primulas, Prized Pulmonarias and Fabulous Foliage!

Primulas offer elaborately-crafted colorful blooms in varied shapes,……

including draped bells, candelabras, drumsticks and pincushions. Many Primrose flowers  waft a delectable scent. Second-to-none for the dappled recesses of your garden, these easily grown, cold-hardy Primulas crave well-drained, humus-rich niches with adequate moisture and good air circulation. They can grace containers or be planted in swaths along shady walkways or in woodland gardens. Be sure to peruse our online Primulas.

Prized Pulmonarias……

One of the earliest perennials to bloom, you can be picking their enchanting urn-shaped flowers in February while the rest of the garden still slumbers. Many cultivars showcase an array of mercury-hued dapples, speckles and spots, while others sport solid pewter sheens or striking silver streaks. Easy-to-grow Pulmonarias prefer the lacy light of a woodland setting plus cool moist soil. Our newsletter also includes a handful of other shade-loving perennials that promise alluring foliage. Many of these perennials can be partnered with Pulmonarias for intriguing foliar contrast. You may wish to check out our online Pulmonaria offerings.

All of us plant and paper wranglers wish you good health and happy digging!
