Abies balsamea 'Piccolo' Abies balsamea 'Piccolo'

A German selection of dwarf Balsam Fir and a superior cultivar than the more readily available 'Nana'. Hardly surprising that the Germans would have a superior cultivar and if enough of these get planted, they might counteract Volkswagen's emissions cover-up. Grows just 1"-3" per year and reaches 2'x2' in 10 years.  Zone 3-8.

Acer heptaphlebium PZVN13-014 Acer heptaphlebium PZVN13-014

Fine deciduous species with excellent foliage collected by Peter Zale in northern Vietnam.  This will need a sheltered position in the Northwest as it breaks growth early in spring and the new growth can suffer frost damage..  That said, if you have that mild garden near the water or in an urban heat sink, this is a good one.

Acer sikkimense FMWJ 13166 Acer sikkimense FMWJ 13166

Seed collected at Lao Cai, Phansi Pu valley, Vietnam at 1960 meters.  This is a striking semi-evergreen maple whose brilliant burgundy new growth ages to a dark glossy green and then scarlets up in the fall.  In the wild, this can form a decent sized tree but in cultivation is somewhat shrubby to a shapely small tree,  Not for cold areas, zone 8b?

Achillea grandifolia Achillea grandifolia

Imposing perennial to 4' or more with stout stems holding large corymbs of small whitish flowers most of the summer.  Pretty awesome plant for a Yarrow and a hard one to come by and thanks to Gayle Richardson for sharing this with us.  Bold enough to fit in the tropical look, hardy enough to grow nearly anywhere and the deer don't like it - sign me up!

Aciphylla aurea Aciphylla aurea

Wicked New Zealander with defensively formidable stilleto yelloowish leaves in a low dense mound.  This is not only deer resistant but wild boar, komodo dragon and grizzly bear reisistant as well.  This well armored Kiwi has dioecious white flowers in a showy yellow plume.  Good deep drainage.

Aciphylla scott-thomsonii Aciphylla scott-thomsonii

The largest of the Spaniard Grasses, this is native to sub-alpine montane grasslands on the South Island of New Zealand where it does experience snow.  The plant forms large tussocks whose needle sharp blue-green leaves can reach 3' long.   Perhaps best of all, it has a spike of soft yellow flowers up to 9' tall.  Not a true grass but in the carrot family.

Acis (Leucojum) autumnale Acis (Leucojum) autumnalis

One of the sweetest little bulbs imaginable!  Summer dormant with dainty white flowers on 6"  stems appearing in Aug into Sept.  This grows in Portugal, Gibralter and Morocco and is just as happy growing with Madrona in the PNW as it is Olives back home.  Grassy foliage up in fall and winter.

Aconitum bulbuliferum ‘Monk Gone Wild' CDHM14523 Aconitum bulbuliferum ‘Monk Gone Wild' CDHM14523

Our collection of this distinctive viningMonkshood from the wooded slopes of Longshou in Sichuan.   We think this is quite superior to other color forms of this rare species and have given it the name 'Monk Gone Wild' because it is a pretty crazy color for a Monkshood plus this monk managed to remain technically celibate yet still have lots of children via stem bulbils.

Aconitum carmichaelii 'Barker's Variety' Aconitum carmichaelii 'Barker's Variety'

A superb selection with tall strong stems to 5' or more (anecdotal stories of 10' intrigue us but we haven't had them long enough to get old growth Monkshood)  Large dark deep blue cowled flowers are among the best and they do make a statement.  Deer proof.

Aconitum episcopale Aconitum episcopale

Rollicking twining Monkshood from China that delights in scrambling up into shrubs or onto thin trellage.  Although a fine and aristocratic perennial, it remains devoid of snobbery embracing chainlink as if it were ornate wrought iron at an Antebellum mansion.  Dusky lavender flowers.

Aconitum episcopale - select Aconitum episcopale - select

This is a clone of this climbing Monkshood species which initialy caught our eye as being subtly different than the other form we offer.  This has some yellowish mottling to the foliage and appeals to our geeky natures as being a little different.  Same light blue flowers as the typical form.  This will climb to 10' or more and drape itself upon a handy shrub or trellis.

Aconitum hemsleyanum CGG14028 Aconitum hemsleyanum CGG14028

This is from our seed collection on the Chongqing-Guangxi-Guizhou expedition in 2010.  We found this on the summit of the previously unbotanized highest peak in the Wumingshan where it was clambering about on the top of the short scrub.  We were struck by the large seed pods.  Light blue flowers on this vining Monkshood.

Aconitum sp. PMD Aconitum sp. PMD

An interesting Monkshood species from a Philip MacDougall collection in Taiwan.  This has large dusky blue-purple flowers on 2'-3' stems in mid summer and is not so tall so as to require support.  This does well for us in full sun but might be even better in half sun. It has been a reliable performer and a nice change from the typical Dutch and Euro selections.

Aconitum volubile Aconitum volubile

Another climbing Monkshood species which we quite enjoy. A great deer proof perennial that each year produces twining vines to 10' or more with terminal clusters of Monkshood flowers of lavender-purple and white in late summer and fall. Good for trellises or running up into large shrubs, small trees or wire fence panels. Pretty darned easy.

Actinidia sp. MD12-818 Actinidia sp. MD12-818

These are sturdy plants which will grow like mad next year.  Our collection from Guizhou in 2012 of this handsome in foliage vining kiwi fruit.  The fruits themselves were quite a decent size, about the size of a walnut and made for a tasty trail snack.   No idea on the species yet - there are lots in China!  Hardy Z8 to likely Z7.

Adinandra glischroloma var. glischroloma CDHM14694 Adinandra glischroloma var. glischroloma CDHM14694

This is likely the first introduction of this curious Tea family member from our collection in Guangxi Province. An evergreen shrub to 10' in the wild with long slightly drooping olive-green leaves prominently hirsute especially along the margins. Flowers are small and white and give way to small black fruit. We are thinking hardy to zone 8.

Agapanthus 'Black Buddhist' Agapanthus 'Black Buddhist'

This is a fine selection quite comparable to "Back in Black" but a bit more compact in stature aspiring to attain 3' in height.  This makes it much more workable for the front of the bed or as a container element.  Dark stems holding dark blue-purple flowers in late summer.  Mulch if very cold but has been fine here in the Puget Sound area.

Agapanthus 'Bressingham Blue' Agapanthus 'Bressingham Blue'

This was selected at Bressingham Gardens by the legendary Alan Bloom and is derivative from the garden-proven Headsbourne hybrids that are noted for hardiness and excellent flowers.  This pick of the litter has 2-1/2' stems with baseball sized flowerheads of a good dark blue.  This will be good for zone 7 with a nice deep mulch.

One of the top hybrids bred by Steve Hickman of Hoyland's and is well-regarded among those in the know for its large powder-blue flowers on 30" stems.  We have just a few of these and owe thanks to plantsman Jim Fox's courier efforts from the UK and for sharing with us.

Agapanthus 'Midnight Blue' Agapanthus 'Midnight Blue'

A sterling selection of a smaller Agapanthus which has lots of small heads of dark blue flowers,  We dug this from the personal garden of our friends from Hedgerows Nursery upon their retirement and moving away.  A very choice selection and not to be confused with the clone 'Midknight Blue'.

Agapanthus 'Purple Cloud' Agapanthus 'Purple Cloud'

A hybrid out of New Zealand that is widely regarded as one of the best. A hardier deciduous species with big heads of purple-violet flowers with each petal boasting a darker central stripe. This is a performer which will not disappoint. This can be grown in zone 7 if deeply mulched for the winter. We typically mulch all of our Agapanthus just to be on the safe side as we can get cold here.

Agapanthus 'Rotterdam' Agapanthus 'Rotterdam'

A hardy deciduous selection of Lily of the Nile which boasts very good light blue flowers on stems to 30".  We presume that this is a Dutch selection based on the name,  Had it been named Los Angeles, we would have gone out on a similar limb and said US of A.  An established clump puts on a show.  We mulch ours in cold winters.

Agapanthus 'Senna' Agapanthus 'Senna'

A seedling selection from Agapanthus 'Back in Black' from the Netherlands.  This has strong purple black flower stems to 3 feet which hold dark violet blue flowers.  It is those little things like the dark stems that tend to loom large in the landscape giving your garden that competitive edge over your friends.  Not that you care.   Mulch in winter.

Agapanthus inapertus 'Nigrescens' Agapanthus inapertus 'Nigrescens'

Agapanthus inapertus ssp. pendulus 'Nigrescens' is the complete name of this inky blue-black beauty.  Drooping pendulous florets are striking and this form is even darker than the more familiar 'Graskop' .  Give it plenty of sun and a good snuggly blanket of mulch in the winter.  Good drainage too!

Agapanthus inapertus subsp. pendulus 'Graskop' Agapanthus inapertus subsp. pendulus 'Graskop'

We love this selection of Agapanthus which grows wild near Graskop, South Africa and is a grand departure from the rounded aerial starbursts usually associated with Agapanthus.  Still fireworks but with falling streamers of inky violet-black long pendulous florets which speak to us at a limbic level.  Mulch in winter.  Deciduous.
