Our Featured Plant: Crambe cordifolia

Compelling Crambes!


A study in Paleolithic proportions and high drama, this Cruciferous family member is a sturdy long-lived perennial. Large, coarsely toothed crisp green leaves launch a hefty multi-branched pale green stem, which bolsters an enormous Gypsophila-style cloud of tiny 4-petaled white flowers. Crambe can be utilized as a backdrop or a bold specimen mid-border, plus makes a stunning addition to cut arrangements, fresh or dried. It craves a sunny spot with well-drained average garden soil.

Usher in Summer with June Blooms!


June is an exciting month in the garden. It is a time of transition, a changing of the guard, so to speak, as many early flowering perennials are beginning to fade, while the summer bloomers are taking center stage. I’ve included a handful of perennials, whose beckoning floral or foliar effects usher in summer! 

Happy digging and happy summer from all us Digging Dog Plant Wranglers!
