Most summer blooming plants are shutting down due to the shorter, cooler days. Ceratostigma griffithii is, however, in all its glory! This large, deciduous shrub will grow 5 to 6 feet in height and width. It is quite easy to maintain, the water requirements are minimal and the plant is considered deer resistant. It will provide fall color for many years.
‘First Knight’ Pennisetum is a relatively new form of the genus. It’s a striking addition to the garden. Although it dies completely to the ground, it reaches 5 to 6 feet by mid summer the following year. The leaves are much broader than other of its species. This grass takes a while to emerge in the spring, so be patient. It will be an outstanding accent until the frost takes it down.
Paper White Narcissus are a traditional holiday gift. Their fragrance is intense! The bulbs require only a base of small rocks and water. We have a healthy supply of bulbs and small rocks as well. We also have a small hand-out suggesting adding a bit of alcohol to the water to prevent the plants from becoming overly tall. The holidays are getting closer!
