Enliven a shady nook
These easily grown plants will thrive in either bright shade, dappled light or the somewhat darker recesses of your garden. Enlivening just about any shady spot, a few of them unfurl variegated or golden foliage, while others showcase crisp white blooms. For an impressive presentation, try adding the bold textural leaves of Rheum, Astilboides and Dryopteris to a woodland setting. Helleborus ‘Red Lady’s richly colored flowers add an air of mystique and Viola ‘Rebecca’s blossoms waft a sweet perfume.Digging Dog's early March 2017 Newsletter Link

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.Digging Dog's Early August 2017 Newsletter Link
