at Digging Dog

Veronicastrum

Culver's Root

These elegant perennials impart a lofty vertical element to the late summer garden. Graced with distinctive narrow spires of densely arranged tiny flowers, Veronicastrum are native to meadows and woodlands, and are easy to grow in adequately moist soil.

In addition to the stylish blooms, this sought-after Veronicastrum gives you good reason to adore it. When tall valiant stems stretch skyward, they strut striking purple shades easily spotted from a distance, which promise to turn more than a few heads. Round densely packed pink buds set the stage for ethereal-looking lilac flowers on candelabra-like spires, further enhancing the dashing whorls of deep green pointed leaves.

Blooms August – September.

Size: 4'–5' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Viola ‘Rebecca’ for it's sweet, delectable scent and tidy compact clumps of dapper evergreen foliage. All are equally captivating, though no two are alike, each ebullient white flower showcases a creamy lemon flushed center and irregularly patterned, deep violet edges. This sweet smelling Viola should be ensconced near a well-traveled path or seating area, where its plentiful color flecked flowers can be easily relished ‘till the first hard frost.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”
