This Month's Featured Plant
Tiarella cordifolia 'Spring Symphony'
Spring Symphony Foamflower
Our November feature is a special collection. Read on.
As cool weather settles in, most perennials in our area are nearly dormant. It's a good time to clean up the garden and reflect on the successes and failures of the preceding year. If you see too many bare areas, maybe you need more evergreen plants. The winter garden need not be only shades of brown and beige! But is it too late to plant? No, not for everyone. For zones 7 and south, this is still a GREAT time to plant. Soil temperatures stay warm long after nighttime temperatures start to dip, and these are perfect conditions for encouraging rooting and establishment of new plants. In fact, in general, FALL IS ACTUALLY THE BEST TIME TO PLANT MOST PERENNIALS. Plus, if you plant your spring wildflowers now, they will wake up at the right time for you next spring. There are a number of spring bloomers that we cannot ship when they are up and flowering because they are too fragile. So for these fragile spring bloomers, we either delay shipping or we prune severly. Bottom line, you will be happier with spring bloomers if you plant them now.
So our November feature is a collection of four spring bloomers that look great together in the shade garden. Start off with Spring Symphony foamflower, an evergreen clumper that has attractive green with burgundy splotched leaves and very light pink flowers from mid-spring into summer. It looks great in masses. Then add wild bleeding heart with its soft rose pink flowers and blue/green, fern-like foliage. These will flower from late spring on and off until fall. Add a couple of brilliant yellow splashes of celandine poppies, then finish up with an evergreen ground covering of bright blue flowering Veronica Georgia Blue. These four look perfect together and will thrive in bright shade and good soil. Buy at least one of all 4 of these (normally $43.00 for the 4 plants) for immediate shipping, and we will add an additional Georgia Blue. That’s a $53 dollar value for $43.00. Shipping not included. You will love this easy and beautiful spring collection. more info
