Delphinium exaltatum

Tall larkspur

Wow! A blue-flowered Delphinium for bright to average shade and it is native to woodland glades from Alabama to Pennsylvania. Ours came to us thanks to the generosity of the Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, Ohio. Spikes of spurred blue flowers top 3-6' stems from July to September. A welcome addition to the woodland edge or bright shade border.

Dicentra eximia

Wild bleeding heart

A popular plant for the shade garden, Dicentra eximia is a tremendous performer. The leaves are deeply cut and fern like. The pink flowers are oblong heart shaped with an inner petal that drips from the outer petals, creating the appearance that the heart is bleeding. The flowers are smaller and longer than the old-fashioned bleeding heart, but in long branching inflorescences that encourage a more floriferous species.

Dracocephalum ruyschianum 'Blue Dragon'

Dragonhead

Our own selection of this species has dark blue snapdragon flowers covering a low, thick mound of rosemary-like foliage in early summer. Compact in a container and very easy to grow, just treat it as you would a Dianthus. It has been reliably hardy in Landenberg through rain and drought for many winters. Needs good drainage.
