1-2'H Perennials

These perennials usually remain in the 1 to 2 feet high range under most conditions. They are still low enough for the front of perennial border, garden, and landscape and some of the rhizomatous species will make low to medium height groundcovers. Their tidy habits also lend them to use as fillers and spillers for container specimens and in combinations for small to medium sized containers. Growing conditons and how well a plant is established may affect it's ultimate size.

 

Spanish Snapdragon, Creeping Snapdragon

Antirrhinum hispanicum 'Roseum', A. glutinosum

A freely flowering summer blooming Snapdragon, this easy to grow perennial produces dense spikes of soft rosy pink flowers with primrose yellow and peachy orange nectar guides that sit atop a compact mound of handsome fuzzy gray-green foliage. The Spanish Snapdragon, a native of the drier Meditteranean region of Europe, is a suprisingly winter hardy species growing about twice as wide as it is high and may trail somewhat when grown as a container plant. It is best suited to soils with excellent drainage in a full to mostly sunny location and makes a forgiving container specimen that will dazzle for weeks. Even with its preferences for drier conditions it has been quite tolerant of growing in average moist well-drainedsoils in our hot and humid southern zone 8B climate. Moderately drought resistant once well-established and considered to be deer and rabbit resistant. Item# 11695

Grows To: 12-18"H x 18-24"W
Outdoor Light: Full sun, Mostly sunny, Part sun, Part shade, Light shade

Clusters of 6-8" wide white fragrant (may be most intensely fragrant at night) flowers composed of a frilly edged round ruffled hymen, with a yellow to greenish yellow throat, from which radiate the 6 long narrow spidery petals. The Spring Spiderlily, Hymenocallis lirosme, is a spring flowering bulbous native perennial with upright to arching medium green sword shaped foliage. It is typically found growing in areas that are wet or are consistently moist, at least during the spring and early summer when the plant is in active growth. It generally goes dormant in mid to late summer after the seeds have ripened or if it gets too dry it may go dormant early in self-defense. The Spring Spiderlily is well suited to bogs and wet areas and can also be submerged in about 2" of water and is perfectly happy growing at the pond's edge or streamside. This species is rarely offered in the nursery trade and these are large well established flowering sized bulbs growing in their own containers. The flowers of Hymenocallis or Spiderlilies are typically pollinated by hummingbird or Sphinx moths but may also be visited by butterflies. Item# 11958
