AEGOPODIUM podagraria

AEGOPODIUM
http://baygardens.tripod.com/foliagevar.htmlWe've all heard the warnings never to allow Goutweed into our gardens. And we've all disregarded those warnings because of the wonderful ground-covering properties of this green and white variegated plant. Its drought tolerance makes it doubly effective. So if you must grow it, be sure to place it where its spread can be restrained.

Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum': Goutweed, green foliage with a creamy-white margin, 4" x indefinite spread

A cousin of dianthus and has similar narrow glossy leaves that grow into a prostrate mat. Covered with 1/2 in flowers. Good substitute for moss in a sunny area.

Time Bloom
Color Zones
Under 12 in. Partial Sun Spring Red 3 - 8
Rosy-pink ball-shaped flowers atop thin, leafless stalks held well above the foliage. Will bloom from mid spring into summer. Being a coastal native it can handle life along walks and drives that are treated with salt (to a degree). Good candidate for rock gardens and containers.

Care: Plant sea pinks in well-drained soil in full sun. They don't like a lot of moisture so they will also do well in rock gardens. Divide plants every few years to keep them vigorous. If the soil is too rich the plants won't bloom as well. Good winter drainage is essential to prevent rot.

Bergenia cordifolia 'Winterglut'
[Saxifrage] $8.00

Height Light
Needs Bloom
Time Bloom
Color Zones
12 - 18 in. Partial Sun Spring Red 3 - 8
Shiny, evergreen (Z6 and warmer), cabbage-like leaves with unique leathery appearance. Turns reddish-bronze in the fall and winter. Flowers cluster on a thick stem.

Care: Bergenia thrives in almost any amount of sunlight, but partial shade is ideal. In northern regions, it will grow in full sun, but it needs afternoon shade in the south. In either region, plants will always perform the best in rich, moisture-retentive soil. However, it dislikes heavy soils and standing water. Propagate by division in early spring or by seed. Divisions should be replanted fairly deep into the soil.

Color Zones
12 - 18 in. Partial Sun Spring Yellow 5 - 9
One of the best landscape plants for all-season color. 'Bonfire' is one of the most colorful spurges ever invented! The top growth is a fantastic combination of deep purple, red, and orange leaves with a touch of chartreuse, while the undergrowth is green. The foliage tends to deepen to burgundy red at the height of summer. In late spring, crackling sulphur yellow bracts light up the whole plant for several weeks. PPAF

Care: Well-drained soil that is moderately rich will suit spurge quite well. This variety benefits from some clipping to help them mound. Will seed readily but not a bother since it is easily remove or prevent by early deadheading.
