Halimiocistus 'Merrist Wood's Cream'
× Halimiocistus wintonensis 'Merrist Wood Cream'
Price: $12.00
(Out of Stock)

4" Pot
Spectacular bigeneric hybrid Rockrose with evergreen sage colored leaves and loads of 2" creamy flowers with each petal sporting a dollop of maroon at the base. Lots of color from May to July. This likes full sun and lean soil with good drainage and occasional light watering.

4" Pot
An intricate departure from the coarser Acanthus commonly found in gardens, this far more diminutive with low, finely cut, thistle-like foliage less than a foot tall and short 16" flower spikes with pink flowers backed by gray-green calyces. Like all Acanthus, this will spread by suckering rhizomes. Unlike all Acanthus, this is frustratingly slow (from a nurseryman's standpoint) and very easily managed if indeed you feel compelled to manage this slow and desirable expansion. Ours has been in the ground for several years and last year we finally were able to divide off a few pieces to pot up. Full sun and good drainage. Hardy here but perhaps mulch in cold zone 7. Might be ok with the same in zone 6 but we have no experience.

Gallon Pot - Pickup at Nursery Only
A nice companion or alternative to Japanese maples. This Chinese species has distinctive trifoliate leaflets which gives it a graceful appearance and makes one wonder however briefly just what the heck it is. A fine small tree to 25 or 30 feet with a rounded oval habit. Fall color is variable from scarlet to yellow. Le'ts hope for red!

Beautiful Maple from the Southern Mediterranean and Northern Africa that loves the sun and is more drought tolerant than most Maples. We have this in our display border and love the ivy-like leaves and pale salmon new growth. The fruits are a showy reddish color. Nice narrow habit.

A handsome smaller maple from our collection on the botanical treasure trove of Damingshan in Guangxi in 2012. The leaves were distinct from the other species we saw on the mountain in that they had seven lobes. Something for us to puzzle out over the winter as it likely scarcely in cultivation. Very likely the same species as CDHM14727 as at this young age, the leaves are 5 lobed but may change with age. None of the trees we saw from the 14727 had the 7 lobes.

Medium Band Pot
One of 3 maples we collected on Damingshan in 2012 which lies in Guangxi not far north of the Vietnam border. This was found on the lower slopes but we anticipate it will still be hardy and good in the maritime areas of the PNW. Five lobes to the leaves on a relatively small and rare tree. We have referred to this in the past as aff. kweilinense since that species has been noted on that mountain but now are withholding judgement until someone better versed in maples hazards a guess.

Small Band Pot
Wicked New Zealander with defensively formidable stiletto yellowish leaves in a low dense mound. This is not only deer resistant but wild boar, komodo dragon and grizzly bear resistant as well. This well-armored Kiwi has dioecious white flowers in a showy yellow plume. Locally, this has perhaps been best grown at Linda Cochran's famed garden on Bainbridge Island where it has simply become more architecturally arresting over the last 10 years. Fare to say Linda is ruthless when it comes to underachievers and the fact that this has remained very high on her list of favorites for the last decade is ample endorsement. Reasonable drainage and full to half sun..

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, Gibraltar and Morocco and is just as happy growing with our native Madrona (Arbutus menziesii) here as it is Olives back home. Grassy foliage up in fall and winter.

Aconitum episcopale

Medium Band Pot
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 in late summer and fall are hugely welcome. This is totally herbaceous dying completely back after flowering only to reemerge in spring bigger and better than before. The climbing Aconitum can be confusing to pin down as to proper identity but we finally sat down with flowers and foliage and key in hand and confirmed that this indeed A. episcopale. This is likely from a Diana Reeck collection in Yunnan in 1996 but that is best guessing. Nice blooming-sized plants.

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.

Monkshood. This is a fine wildflower from Japan making attractive clumps with cowled dusky lavender flowers. This has been an easy doer increasing easily and the clumps are a snap to divide if you want more. And we always do. This not one for the sunny garden but best in morning sun or light shade. This doesn't get tall staying under 3' and isn't anything to worry about staking. Just a quietly lovely plant except for the unfortunate derisive comments it hurls at passing deer as it is completely unpalatable. Fortunately this commentary lies outside the range of human hearing so there is little chance of offending invited guests.

This used to be Cimicifuga elata but is now an Actaea and commonly known as Bugbane. This is one of our of natives found in small areas in the Olympics and more widely west of the Cascades in damp lowland forests in southern Washington and NW Oregon. A good plant with broad maple-ish leaves and tall stems with wands of white flowers sometimes tinged in light pink in late summer. This can get 6'-8' tall but most of that is skinny vertical height so while it is tall, it is not bulky. These have their provenance from SW Washington being seed-grown from a plant we got from our friend Diana Reeck at Collector's Nursery.

Really, really good selection from Mt Cuba Center in Delaware of the eastern US 'Doll's Eyes'. In this selection, the normal green leaves are upstaged by gleaming cool pewter foliage. Any plant that gets metallic sheens, we're all over it! Incidental white puffs of flowers give way to late summer amazing white berries on red pedicels.

A subtle woodlander for most of spring and summer until late summer and fall when it suddenly busts a move and starts strutting its stuff. Fern-like foliage backs small white puffs of flowers in May which become showy clusters of bright white fruit in late summer & fall. The white version of our red fruited native.

Small Band Pot 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. We don't have a species for this yet given the twin problems of us not being fluent in Actinidia and the fact that Guizhou has way too many species to make keying easy. Like most Actinidia, a vigorous vine needing trellage or in the case of the plants in the wild, a convenient tree. Hardiness is unknown but we will conservatively say zone 8 but really expect that 7 should be fine.

It is easy enough to get a fern with rich, deep green leaves but sometimes that dark shade garden is just crying out for a little contrast and this fern will provide some subtle relief. A deciduous species that gets just 18"-24" tall with fronds supported by wiry black stems. A moisture lover, don't torture it in dry shade.

Mairis's Maidenhair Fern. This is a sterile semi-evergreen hybrid between Adiantum capillaris-veneris and anybody's guess. Sterile hybrid means vigor - no wasting time flinging spores into the air. If only I had been a sterile hybrid, I could have been a contender. All that time lost and distractions.

This is likely the first introduction to cultivation of this curious Theaceae or Tea family member from our collection just north of the Vietnam border in Guangxi Province. We unfortunately neglected to measure the sepals while on the mountain to see if this is var. glischroloma or var. macrosepala - our bad! But now we all have something to look forward to when it flowers and fruits rather than simply that it is flowering and fruiting. We will all be out measuring sepals and petals and the first to report in will pretty much rule. This is serious 99% pure Plant Crack and even we have to cut this stuff to be able to function well enough to do things like buy groceries. 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 held along the underside of the branches somewhat akin to Eurya. The flowers give way to small black fruit. No idea how hardy this is but we are thinking zone 8 as this mountain endured a serious cold and ice event in 2008 and we saw no evidence of damage to these plants in 2010. We returned in 2012 and it is this collection that is being offered. Thanks to Tom Hudson for the accurate identification. Brilliant.

4" Pot A collection from northern Vietnam of this rare gesneriad by intrepid plant hunter Steve Hootman. This has vertical branches on a small shrub clad in dark green ranked leaves evocative of boxwood but that similarity is quickly dispelled when the tubular flame red flowers appear. The flowers are followed by interesting narrow and thin almost bean pod-like seed capsules dangling from wiry pedicels. Best grown frost-free, this likes an acid, free-draining soil as it is often epiphytic on trees or rocks. Excellent container plant which can be moved inside for the winter or simply kept as a houseplant as this is the same genus as the familiar Lipstick Vine. Steve, in addition to his mandated world-class expertise in Ericaceae, has in recent years developed an unprofitable but deeply personally rewarding interest - some might say obsession - in the Gesneriaceae and we are happy beneficiaries of his collecting prowess and now the trickle down effect has trickled further to you.

Gallon Pot  Well-established nice plants of this double flowered selection with sizable heads of pale powder blue flowers on 2' stems above evergreen foliage.  This will give one pause thinking those flowers seem to have that extra something when you realize they do have that extra something - more petals!  A good container plant if overwintered frost-free or fine in the ground here in Western Washington if mulched when winter turns wintery.

Lily of the Nile. New selection from New Zealand and we're tickled to have enough to list. This is one of the hardier Agapanthus and is a nice compact semi-evergreen plant to 30" - it will be deciduous for us most winters though and like all Agapanthus is best mulched in winter to keep frost from the crown. If you are good plant steward and do mulch it then you will be rewarded by a good display of superb dark blue flowers which have a very long bloom period from July to October. Good drainage yet moist in full sun. Very highly regarded in the UK and these could not be any larger in their pots.
