at Digging Dog
A profusion of dense and oblong, catkin-like blooms sway above decorative pinnate foliage, generating interest for months. Happiest in a sunny spot where the soil stays moist, these vigorous perennials offer contrasting clarity to the softer, less defined forms in the naturalized garden.
Residing on wiry arching stems, soft pink fingerlike spikes look fluffy and feminine. They nod lazy heads at the handsome bushy mass of tranquil blue-green leaves marked by indented margins that grows below.
Size: 2-1/2' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Sanguisorba obtusa (P-1400)

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant
Our Valentine's Day Favorite is Cyclamen purpurascens. Prized for its fragrant dark purplish pink flowers, this variable widely dispersed European denizen hosts a gleaming bed of round silver patterned leaves with violet-imbued undersides. Cyclamen purpurascens adores moderately moist well-drained sites plus deciduous leaf litter, especially from Beech trees, and imparts endearing summer color to a woodland setting.
