at Digging Dog

Including Helianthemum varieties St. Mary’s, Cheviot, Belgravia Rose, Dazzler, and Henfield Brilliant

Helianthemum

Sun Rose

Evergreen subshrubs and members of the Cistus family, Sun Roses come from the Mediterranean. Tolerant of drought and salt spray, they exhibit the general hardiness that makes them welcome in a rock garden. Let them cascade over a wall or some other sunny, well drained location.

Tufted with yellow stamens, their fleeting, silky, roselike blossoms provide a luminous and continuous display against small-sized matte foliage. Capable of quick infill, combine the Sun Roses with traditional companions like Lavenders, Euphorbias and Origanums.

This glamorous beacon for the late season garden is our favorite plant this week. Hydrangea aspera ‘Rocklon’ with it's large pink clouds of buds and pinkish bronze, downy new growth bring a soft look to this noble, rarely cultivated Hydrangea. Mounted on stout fuzzy stems, wide, hairy serrated foliage, with red-hued petioles, provides a graceful deep green foil for the enormous mauve lacecaps ringed by white bracts. Adequate water and bright shade will ensure ‘Rocklon’s prosperity, while Corydalis and Stylophorum diphyllum offer contrasting texture beneath. (S-0421)
