Grace Ward Lithodora

Lithodora diffusa 'Grace Ward'

Semi-woody, sprawling groundcover perennial that becomes riddled with small, deep violet-blue flowers in late spring. Soft, mounding, deep green foliage provides a wonderful backdrop to star-shaped blooms, and offers excellent erosion control for hillsides and slopes. Works well planted en masse as a groundcover, used to fill in spaces in beds or borders, or added to containers for color.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
