Actaea rubra Actaea rubra

Seed collected by Ron Ratko in Idaho from a white berried form although these will likely be typical scarlet.  Small poofs of white flowers in spring yield to showy seed clusters in late summer.  A nice native for the shade garden.

Aquilegia formosa Aquilegia formosa

Our native Columbine from seed collected on the way up to Mt Townsend in the Olympics.  One of our most endearing natives with pendulous flowers which have reddish petals and spurs backing a soft yellow cup.  This has a grace and charm so lacking in the garden hybrids.  One of the first wildflowers I learned tottering around in the woods.

Arenaria sp. ex. Wallowa Mts Arenaria sp. ex. Wallowa Mts

A fine little tight mat-forming alpine from the Wallowas in Oregon that appeals only to the most nerdacious of plant nerds in the elevated stratosphere of alpine plant and rock garden geekdom because this is essentially a small swatch of closely clipped putting green astroturf.  It flowers but you will likely miss it.

Asarum caudatum Asarum caudatum

Our selection from the California Redwoods of a large-leafed and vigorous clone of Wild Ginger. This sports large glossy green leaves which mask the sizeable brown starfish flowers hidden underneath.  We always like surprises.  A dense big groundcover in shaded rich moist soil.

Asarum marmoratum Asarum marmoratum

Siskiyou Wild Ginger.  This is a little gem found only in the Siskiyou and Cascade mountains in far southern Oregon and rarely in far northern California.  A little clumper which doesn't make spreading mats like the more familiar Asarum canadense or A. caudatum but makes a dense mound of glossy foliage often well-marbled in silver.  Small reddish purple flowers are interesting to people like us.

Asclepias speciosa Asclepias speciosa

Showy Milkweed.  Feed the Monarch butterflies!  This is the preferred species of Milkweed for the colorful caterpillars to feed on and having these flamboyant critters with their white-black-yellow rings crawling about the gray-green foliage is over-the-top ornamentation plus you get to chalk one up for the environment.

Athyrium filix-femina 'Victoriae' Athyrium filix-femina 'Victoriae'

Perhaps the finest selection of  Lady Fern, this historic deciduous selection develops narrow pinnae (leaflets) which teminate in delightful crests.  With maturity, a clump of this looks like some absinthe-induced Victorian vision of a fern created by a manic lace tatter with a fascination for skeletons.
