Polemonium 'Lambrook Mauve'
Polemonium 'Lambrook Mauve'
Price: $12.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
One of the best Polemoniums with soft lavender tinted foliage and copious flowers of a gentle mauve. An outstanding English introduction that blooms for many weeks and is so easy in the garden without being a nuisance.
Mandragora officinarum
Mandragora officinarum
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Medium Band Pot
Mandrake. Few plants embody the levels of myth, magic and witchcraft that this innocuous bit of herbage possesses. In deep loamy soil the roots can reach 4' taking on human shapes if you're in an altered state. Lush green leaves and purple tinged white flowers. Poisonous. Good drainage.
Parasenecio delphiniifolius 'Sanshoku'
Parasenecio delphiniifolius 'Sanshoku' (syn. Cacalia)
Price: $18.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot This variegated Japanese selection used to be in the genus Cacalia and has been recently placed in Parasenecio by the botanical powers that be. Broad foliage irregularly and finely streaked and spattered in cream like a monochromatic misting by Jackson Pollock on a green canvas. This will get to up to 30" with upright stems clad in this conversational foliage. Flowers are forgettable as is the case with most of these former Cacalians. We've grown this in light shade to good effect and hardy to zone 4..
Photinia niitakayamensis
Photinia niitakayamensis
Price: $18.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
A collection of this endemic species from Taiwan by our friend Philip MacDougall. This was formerly a Stranvaesia and now all Stranvaesia are merged into Photinia. This has lustrous narrow evergreen leaves, white flowers and a load of orange-red fruit in winter. This is essentially an eastern extension of the Photinia davidiana complex and is quite ornamental with narrow somewhat undulate leaves and clusters of small white scented flowers which turn into orange-red fruit which persists from late summer into winter. A handsome large shrub from higher elevations in Taiwan and should be good to zone 7 and possibly lower. One of those plants easy to pronounce silently in your mind but an entirely different matter getting it past your lips in any intelligible manner.
Anemonella thalictroides 'Cameo'
Anemonella thalictroides 'Cameo'
Price: $20.00
In Stock

Small Band Pot
One of the sought-after double forms, this has long-lasting soft pink flowers which fills in that necessary whimsical cute element in the garden. Most folks don't even know that their "cute quotient" is sorely deficient until they pop one of these little gems in the garden. One of the small spring ephemerals which just gets better year after year. We grow ours in light shade where it has formed a nice clump with dozens of flowers. The flowers go on for a couple of months here in our slow drawn spring and being sterile, they have shutoff after being pollinated so they really hang on. Hardy to zone 5, these are nice plants.
Iris foetidissima 'Picos de Europa'
Iris foetidissima (seedlings of 'Picos de Europa')
Price: $12.00
In Stock

4" Pot These are seedlings from the clear yellow flowered form of this variable Iris which was found in Spain's Picos de Europa by English botanist Richard Nutt to which he bestowed the geographic clonal name. Being seedlings, these will likely carry on the variable tradition to a degree with the hopes that they will come reasonably true to type. The dream, of course, would be a better yellow flowered plant while the corresponding inverse nightmare would be some undistinguished muddy color. These were seeds from plantsman John Flintoff who says they generally come true. Evergreen, tough as nails, shade to part shade and flowering best in the latter, brilliant seed pods, takes wet or dry but thrives in rich and moist. Rich green upright lances of leaves contrast with bold foliage of Podophyllum, Trillium and Cardiocrinum while providing winter interest when many perennials are dormant.
Albizia kalkora
Albizia kalkora
Price: $16.00
In Stock

Medium Band Pot Kalkora Mimosa. Our friend and fellow plant fiend Ted Herrington shared this seed with us from whence these plants sprung (really wanted to say sprang which would have betrayed my pork rind roots) which is from a Korean collection near where the Raulston Arboretum collection was obtained. This population is said to be a superior form of the species and at one point was separated into Albizia coreana. This is a rapid grower like pretty much all Silk Trees and has a profuse display of feathery yellowish-white flowers with pink stamens held above the delicately textured bipinnately compound foliage. Excellent for shading the patio as this will get 30'+ tall with a broad canopy. A fairly uncommon species and most likely a one-time offering from us until our plant we are saving gets big enough to set seed and starts the cycle over again. Don't wait though - we could be over Albizia by then and smitten by terrariums in our dotage. These are thin-stemmed little treelets that won't impress upon receipt but they will grow fast which is why we are selling them now at this size.
Polygonatum mengtzense FMWJ 13066
Polygonatum mengtzense FMWJ 13066
Price: $25.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot A collection of this rare and usually epiphytic evergreen Solomon Seal from Vietnam by Aaron Floden. This species has in the past been treated as a synonym of Polygonatum punctatum but Floden has determined it to be distinct and reinstated mengtzense as a valid species name. We love this kind of stuff! A small species less than a foot tall with small rounded white bells under the arching stem as the new shoot elongates and matures. These are flowering size and hardiness is unknown but would think zone 8 for sure especially with mulch during frigid spells. This would be a sweet plant in a cool conservatory planted in a damp tufa wall with gesneriads, ferns and orchids. Something we dream about having some day but it will require a win in the powerball lottery. And we would actually have to buy a ticket for that to happen. The next best thing would be if you had the conservatory with the rocky moist cliff constructed inside specifically for planting special little gems and are completely stymied about what to plant and are longing for a good consultant and planting designer.
