Thought in ancient times to perpetuate good health, an Arab proverb asks, “How shall a man die with sage in his garden?” Our Salvias are di­­verse perennials, shrubs or subshrubs, many hailing from the Mediterranean, Mexico, South America and some of our western states. Reliable once established, and generally undaunted by pests, disease and drought, they combine an array of flowers and often aromatic foliage in many different sizes, shapes and hues.

Cercidiphyllum japonicum: A tree brimming with elegance....

An inhabitant of China and Japan, Cercidiphyllum japonicum usually grows as a refined multitrunked tree with a pyramidal to rounded canopy. Cloaking gracefully structured branches, the lovely somewhat heart-shaped deciduous leaves unfurl in bronzy purple tones, and later exhibit medium bluish green hues for summer. The foliar grand finale includes brilliant yellow, apricot, orange or mauve colors plus a sweet strawberry-like scent that wafts some 15 feet or further on sunny, warm fall afternoons. This easy-care tree prefers adequate moisture as well as some protection from hot scorching sun and drying winds.

Autumnal Allure...

One of the greatest joys of gardening is witnessing the changes that occur in our landscapes throughout the year, and many deciduous woody plants pretty much top the list for affording dynamic seasonal transformations, especially in autumn. Most of the trees and shrubs featured in this newsletter are renowned for both their handsome habits and prismatic fall displays. We’ve also included a few of our favorite perennials that lend late season floral or foliar intrigue.

All of us Digging Dog plant wranglers wish you Happy Digging!
