Alyssum stribrnyi grows happily in the west facing crevice in our tufa rock garden. It is another cold hardy perennial and is also heat and drought tolerant.
The cushion pinks are tough and long-lived workhorses in the rock garden. They form low evergreen cushions with flower displays in spring. This Dianthus subacaulis has formed a cushion almost three feet across.
Cardiocrinum giganteum is called the giant lily and it is easy to see why. After several years in the garden, this specimen has decided to flower and is now over nine feet tall and still growing. I am having to trim up the weeping cherry tree to allow the lily to reach toward the sky! We have a limited number of non-flowering bulbs available at the nursery.
