JeffersoniaTwinleaf (part shade to shade)
diphylla: to 12", Named in honor of the third U.S. president, Thomas Jefferson, it bears single, inch-wide flowers that are lavender in bud and open pale lavender to white. In the center of each flower is a cluster of yellow-green stamens. The flowers last for only a couple of days, but there are dozens of flowers in bloom at a time. Following the flowers are interesting seed pods that extend the blooming interest. Twinleaf has interesting foliage along with its pretty flowers. Each leaf is divided into two nearly-identical sections, similar to the wings of a butterfly. The foliage emerges from the ground folded up and the leaves open wide as they mature. The leaves have a dusty-blue cast to them as they first appear in spring and change to blue green as they grow. The leaves grow to six inches wide or more. Spreads to form impressive clumps, making it a good groundcover for a shady spot in the garden. A live plant in a 3" pot - $18 each or 3 for $51.30- You save $2.70! (Nursery-propagated, not wild-collected)
