Epilobium

California Fuchsia

Debuting pretty tubular blooms that are light pink and infused with salmon, this unique, shrubby selection is a welcome departure from the more common orange-hued Epilobiums. A hummingbird haven, the slender, late-blooming flared flowers festoon an attractive, somewhat woody mound of soft-looking sage-green leaves. Tailor-made for natural-style plantings or atop garden walls, ‘Marin Pink’s robust habit needs good drainage, occasional summer watering and a late winter pruning. Its slow spreading rhizomes acquiesce to drought as well as poor rocky enclaves. 

Blooms August–mid October

Size: 2' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 7.

Set aglow by a brilliant plethora of large trumpet-shaped scarlet blooms, narrow velvet-soft silver leaves densely attire the low fine textured mound. A dazzling hummingbird minion, this native Californian sun-lover appreciates well-drained soil and infrequent pinchings to maintain its tailored slow spreading habit that remains evergreen in milder locales. ‘Chaparral Silver’ cheerfully conquers hot weather plus dry difficult conditions, such as south facing slopes, walls and embankments.

Blooms August–November

Size: 12" – 18" high x 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 7.

This coveted ground-hugging subshrub celebrates prismatic, long-lasting late season blooms. Mesmerizing to bees, hummingbirds and plant enthusiasts, droves of dazzling, fluted scarlet flowers festoon fuzzy, deer-resistant pewter-green leaves. One of the lowest growing California Fuchsias, sun-loving ‘Everett’s Choice’ is well-suited for planting on slopes as well as spilling over rock walls or container rims. Acquiescent to dry conditions, it performs best with occasional deep summer waterings plus light afternoon shade in hot locales, while a trim ensures a neat compact profile.

Blooms July–October

Size: 6" – 10" high x 12" – 2' 0" wide.

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!
