Juniperus horizontalis 'Blue Pygmy'
Juniperus horizontalis 'Blue Pygmy'
Price: $20.00

Large Band Pot
This is a very dwarf selection which might grow 1" per year but usually less. Talk about the ideal rock garden conifer or choice little container plant. This isn't one of those "dwarf" conifers that soon takes over the garden - this is perfectly named. In fact, if this gets too big, call us. We'll come get it free of charge and give you something suitably small as a replacement.

Large Band Pot
Love these little rock garden plants and this is a very choice chance hybrid that combines lovely evergreen glossy leaves on a almost painfully slow growing plant. An inch or two a year can make a feller downright impatient but at least it won't outgrow its spot. This wee lass needs a boy holly around to set its small red fruit.
Tsuga diversifolia 'Loowit'

Gallon Pot
This is a choice dwarf version of the Japanese Hemlock. We love the typical tree species anyway but this little cutie has us wrapped around its little branchlet. Growing just 2"-4" per year, this will make a small mound in time and is well suited for the rock garden though not tolerant of dry. Cannot ship to VT.
Ulmus x hollandica 'Jacqueline Hillier'
Ulmus x hollandica 'Jacqueline Hillier'
Price: $18.00

Large Band Pot
A very cool compact Elm hybrid from England which grows very slowly and maybe you will be eye-to-eye with it in 10-15 years. So think of it as a cool large shrub for your enjoyment and a small tree for the next generation or two. A natural for bonsai or adding a tree element to a rock garden.

Small Band Pot
From the Chongqing-Guizhou-Guangxi Expedition in 2010, this collection from Fanjinshan was notable for the somewhat hirsute foliage and rough, exfoliating bark on the trunks. The seed capsules showed that the flowers - likely scented and white in mid to late summer - were held in 4" finger-like racemes. Nicely pinkish to reddish tinted new growth and the fall color is similar but intensified and can vary given exposure and climate. This paired nicely in the wild with the various Rhododendron and Sorbus species while the mingling of the odd Lily and Tripterospermum just added to the allure. Protect this first winter of 2013-14 if the weather turns cold although we expect this to be good to zone 6 at least once established.
Salvia serboana

Large Band Pot
A fairly recent introduction from the mountain forests of Oaxaca, Mexico, this consistently takes top honors in the blue flowered Salvias. This will make a mound of large grape-leaf somewhat resinous foliage with electric blue flowers late summer and fall. A little shade is ok. Mulch well in winter.

Large Band Pot
Awesome tree in the Hammamelidaceae or Witch Hazel family from southern China and north Vietnam which is where this Josh McCullough collection hails from. We saw this growing in the Dayaoshan in China and were struck dumb by the broadly vase-shaped 50' tree. Large evergreen leaves unfurl with bronze tones from large flattened stipules. Small filamentous reddish flowers which we have yet to see. Wish this was hardier and a good plant for zone 9 and hoping for warmer parts of zone 8 but am not optimistic. Cutting grown.
Gentiana asclepiadea "White Throat Seedlings"
Gentiana asclepiadea "White Throat Seedlings"
Price: $12.00
In Stock

Small Band Pot
Willow Gentian. These are young seed-grown plants from our best white-throated form which has big rich blue flowers with a white throat that are ranked along the arching stems and clustering in the leaf axils in late summer into early fall. This is the plant that stops you when you enter our shade garden. These are seedlings so there may be some variation but Willow Gentians are just so good that it will take some serious mutant throwback for you not to be happy. If you do have that mutant, we want it of course. Best in part sun to light shade and a good soil that doesn't dry out.

4" Pot
A Roy Lancaster collection fom Turkey of this invaluable evergreen shrub which is quite scarce in the trade. This will be fairly drought tolerant and likely deer-proof as its brethren all are. Small fragrant white flowers in spring. Just the fact that Roy collected this is reason enough for us to grow it. Indulging a bit in hero worship.
Primula auricula 'Old Mustard'
Primula auricula 'Old Mustard'
Price: $12.00

4" Pot
Classic name for what must be an English selection with amber tawny yellow flowers - in the US with our bright yellow squeeze bottle mustard, it would have to be an old forgotten bottle of mustard indeed. Easy doer we got from that consummate English plantsman David Mason and he didn't steer us wrong. Wide leaves backing stems with umbels of pub mustard flowers with a white eye.
Picea abies 'Mikulasovice'
Price: $20.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
Seriously dwarf form of Norway Spruce found as a compact Witches' Broom mutation. This is made to order for the rock garden or large trough as this typically grows just an inch per year. On a really good year with an accidental spill of Miracle Gro, an inch and a half. Irregular yet densely broadly pyramidal. It will be obvious what I mean in 10-20 years.

Medium Band Pot
Summersweet. Handsome shrub to eventual small tree with a narrow habit from a collection in Sichuan at around 9000 meters. Valued for midsummer white scented flowers held on long finger-like panicles. This species has a wide range from Vietnam to northern India and throughout a large portion of China. This species exhibits as much variation in characteristics across its range as we citizens do in the US of A. It is very likely that Northwest Port Townsenders such as ourselves would be recognized as being from away should we wander the streets of Birmingham or Brooklyn and the differences among various geographical races of Clethra delavayi are no less pronounced.

4" Pot
Mint Bush. Brought to the UK from Australia by Jeffrey Irons and sent to us from a friend in Holland. A Welsh nurseryman describes it as "a cracking plant tolerant of heavy frost and sells on sight". We love the genus with the aromatic deer proof evergreen foliage and in this case, white flowers tinged with lavender in late spring and early summer. This will get 3'-4' tall and tolerates some dry once established but does best in the usual well-drained moisture retentive soil.

Large Band Pot
Peruvian Lily. A collection by Jane McGary from South America of this hot little number. Revels in a sunny rocky soil but is extra happy in good garden soil. It is a rapid spreader via underground rhizomes so contain or give it room to ramble. Flowers of rich orange and good cut.

Gallon Pot
Love the Mountain Hemlocks and always get a rush when we are hiking among them. It would be so cool to find a great variant like Elizabeth Frye did back in the 40's while tramping near Mt Rainier. This has perfect blue-gray foliage and short growth of 2+ inches per year and will eventually get 4' high and 6' wide. Glorious.
