Oakleaf Hydrangea (Seedlings)

Hydrangea quercifolia (seedlings)

The Oakleaf Hydrangea produces large white conical flower heads with large white sterile florets. The flowers are long lasting and fade through shades of pink and change to buff colors in the fall.

Ontario Aster, Bottomland Aster

Symphyotrichum ontarionis, Aster ontarionis

White daisies with a yellow eye that darkens into purplish hues as it matures are produced in late summer and into fall attracting a variety of smaller pollinators especially native bees. The Ontario Aster, Symphyotrichum ontarionis, is a rhizomatous, herbaceous perennial found throughout much of the central and eastern US from Canada south to the Gulf Coast. This native aster is typically found near moist sites in loamy soils and it is often growing in partly shaded conditions though it is sun tolerant. Our recommendation is to provide it with more sun where moisture is more readily available and provide it with part shade/part sun in average moist sites. Pinching it in late spring or early summer will help to promote branching and fuller plants. Item# 12350

Grows To: 18-36"H x 12-18"W

Onyx and Pearls Penstemon, Beardtongue

Penstemon digitalis 'Onyx and Pearls' PP32613

The exceptionally dark purple to near black foliage provides the perfect foil for the numerous 2-3' high spikes of light lavender tubular flowers that appear white against their backdrop. Onyx and Pearls Penstemon or Beardtongue begins flowering in late spring to early summer providing weeks of color and a feast of nectar for hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. Even when not in flower the cloak of dark foliage provides a wonderful contrast for its neighbors. This easy to grow, clump-forming perennial is a selection of our native Foxglove Beardtongue, Penstemon digitalis, and will perform best in a moist to average moist, well-drained soil and a full to mostly sunny site will provide the darkest foliage color. Images courtesy of Walter's Gardens, Inc., all rights reserved.
