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, rose-like blossoms provide a luminous and continuous display against small-sized matte foliage. Capable of quick infill, combine the Sun Roses with water-thrifty companions like Lavenders, select Euphorbias and Origanums.

Click here to view our latest newsletter: Ogle over Oakleaf Hydrangeas, November Pizzazz, Late Season Sale Extended!

Ogle over Oakleaf Hydrangeas...

Large showy conical panicles and bold unmatched foliar texture are the hallmark of these stylish long-lived deciduous shrubs. Perfect for fresh or dried arrangements, the well-endowed lacy blooms unfurl in ivory to dusky rose shades from July through late summer. Broad lobed dark green leaves remain evergreen in warmer climates and signal autumn with cozy scarlet and burgundy tones. Appreciative of dappled afternoon shade, Hydrangea quercifolias boast easy-care habits, handle occasional dry conditions and respond readily to pruning. Be sure to check out our Oakleaf Hydrangea selections in the shrub section of our website. 

November Pizzazz...

November’s shorter days and cooler nights have ignited the garden with spectacular foliar color. An array of woody plants coupled with herbaceous perennials and ornamental grasses promote an abundance of beckoning late season pizzazz. The plants included in this newsletter afford either ample berries, late blooms, commanding leaves or tasteful branching patterns.

Happy Digging from all of us Plant Wranglers!
