Shaded Oasis


A towering locust tree is a striking landscape asset, its feathery leaves casting a dappled, cooling shade. A skirt of salvia protects the tree’s base from the mower while creating a quietly elegant complement, with a burst of purple blooms that light up the yard in spring.

This Kit Includes

  • Gleditsia triacanthos var. inermis ‘Shademaster’ (Shademaster honey locust) This tall, lacy shade tree provides lovely, dappled light. Thornless and moisture and pH adaptable, this plant is fairly user friendly, often used as a street tree. Native to North America, it is ecologically beneficial; host to the silver-spotted skipper (Hesperia tityrus), pollen provider to bees and other insects, and the birds enjoy its seeds.
  • Salvia x sylvestris ‘May Night’ (May Night wood sage) Another mint family favorite, this aromatic herb is well suited for the leading edge of a dry garden where it can attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds en masse. Also known as ‘Mainacht’, this early summer bloomer exhibits rich, fuzzy, violet-blue spikes alongside the catmints, yarrows, and early daylilies. This plant can be deadheaded to intersecting branches for repeat blooms with moderate effort or cut down to basal growth for rejuvenation.
