Saxifraga fortunei

4" Pot
Domo arigato to our friend Lance for sharing some amazing named selections imported from Japan of this choice autumn flowering perennial. These are mixed seedlings mainly from white flowered selections and although all vary in bloom, they are all consistently really good. A beautiful plant with sizable fleshy Maple-ish leaves and topped in fall by airy sprays of pure white to sometimes touched in pink flowers like snow frozen in flight. Favoring a cool moist position and such a delight to have something wondrous blooming in the autumn. These have a surprisingly rugged constitution which belies their delicate appearance so if you can take to avoid letting them dry out, they will take care of you.

Second generation plants from our collection from along our way up the mountain to Tianchi Lake in Yunnan. We found this Lily relative (which has been called N. forrestii) growing in a wooded copse with Sorbus reducta. Likes a good moist soil and can have 7-10 flowers per stem in our experience when it gets some age. Pretty much awesome. These are young bulbs which should flower next year (although we can't guarantee that) and a must-have for cool northern woodland gardens. If you garden in Kansas, Texas or most of the Southeast for example, it is probably better to just enjoy the photo. These survived the brutal 2013-14 winter in Wisconsin at a customer's garden as newly planted bulbs in the fall which is impressive considering the ground froze 5' deep. Hardy to zone 5 if not zone 4..

Medium Band Pot
It is difficult not to like this plant and if you don't, then you may well have to wonder if you are a difficult person. I mean look at this! Tubular crimson flowers flaring to a yellow starry smile? Midwest to Southeastern native enticing hummingbirds and butterflies throughout it's range in late summer and fall.
Corydalis scouleri

Quart Pots
One of our beloved natives colonizing rich bottomland along the shoulders of woodland streams. This has succulent delicate ferny foliage of fresh green looking very munchable (Please Don't) foliage and small terminal flower clusters of pink cornucopias. There is a beautiful colony growing in a seep among some very big trees just yards from the beach along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Such a setting. Moist to darn near wet. This is a spreader so give it room or give it a defined moist spot as it doesn't do dry. In the right spot, there is nothing to compare.
Salvia glabrescens 'Momobana'
Salvia glabrescens 'Momobana'
Price: $15.00

Large Band Pots
Very desirable Japanese woodland Salvia which in this selection has exotic pink fragrant flowers in October! Likes a moist humusy soil in gentle morning sun to light shade. This is quite a departure for the autumn shade garden and it will leave you wanting mo' and mo' Momobana. This is going to work best in areas with mellow fall weather as it such a late bloomer.
Ypsilandra thibetica
Ypsilandra thibetica
Price: $12.00

Medium Band Pot
Fairly recent introduction from China of this superb evergreen perennial. This makes a tidy rosette of evergreen leaves with very attractive scented white flowers in early spring which adds another layer of interest to the shade garden. Makes a nice clump. We say yip-sil-landra by the way. Doesn't mean it's right but we do it so authoritatively that no one questions us. Related to other little treasures like Helonias and Heloniopsis. We saw this on Dayaoshan fall of 2010 where it was growing on little mossy ledges on a shaded cliff face. It is always so exciting to see a plant in habitat when you have gardened with it especially when it is a fairly recent arrival to cultivation.
Gladiolus papilio 'Ruby'
Gladiolus 'Ruby'
Price: $15.00
In Stock

4" Pot
A likely Gladiolus papilio hybrid with some saying it is a form of papilio, our mama plant when in bloom with its 5 foot stems of red-mauve flowers sporting dark eye patches, has frequently caused plant geeks to start speaking in tongues other than Latin binomials and to offer creative enticements in exchange for "just a small start". We have had to say "Sorry" until now although if those enticements are still on the table, we're listening. Perfectly hardy in the ground here.
Corydalis ellipticarpa
Corydalis ellipticarpa
Price: $18.00
In Stock

4" Pot
Exceedigly rare perennial Corydalis allied to the C. temuifolia 'Chocolate Stars' that is encountered in the trade. This has similar growth habit but perhaps brings a smidge more to the table by having yellow flowers. That and no one else has it which always counts a lot. Moist but draining.
Sorbus pseudohupehensis 'Pink Pagoda'
Sorbus pseudohupehensis 'Pink Pagoda'
Price: $10.00

Large Band Pot
These are seedlings from our much-coveted tree on our border which is a superior selection introduced by the Univeristy of British Columbia. The tree is apomictic which means the seeds are gentically identical to the parent. Blue-green leaves, white flowers and stunning pink fruit in summer.

We remain a bit confused on this one and maybe we can blame it on overwork! We originally offered this as P. versipelle subsp. boreale and then Aaron Floden told us that Julian Shaw's recent work had reclassified this into P. mairiei so we dutifully changed the name. Eventually, Darrell Probst saw this and wondered what we were doing as he collected the original seed from the type locality for versipelle subsp. boreale. These botanical dust-ups while fun to observe can be frustrating in getting a broadly accepted name so we're going back with our buddy Darrell on the name and leaving our original amended description below for when we had it listed as P. mairiei.

These are second generation seedlings from a superb collection by Darrell Probst from China which is notable for having over 20 small maroon-mahogany flowers clustered just under the leaf blade. If you have a choice, more flowers makes it easy! This is a striking addition to the shade garden and a moist rich soil will make this very happy which has a direct positive influence on you. We have previously offered this as P. versipelle but thanks to Aaron Floden for correctly identifying this as it is a much rarer species! We're pretty sure you won't find this too many other places. We always liked it but now we like it even more!
Lysimachia paridiformis var. stenophylla
Lysimachia paridiformis var. stenophylla
Price: $10.00

Quart Pot
Newer Lysimachia from China that is quite well behaved in the garden and well worth growing. In fact, we are growing it. Very attractive foliage is a nice setting for the cluster of golden flowers. This really helps extend the bloom in the spring dominated shade garden.
Anemone multifida (magellanica)
Anemone multifida (magellanica)
Price: $7.00

Small Band Pot
This is more commonly known under it's recently invalid name of Anemone magellanica - well, commonly known among plant geeks, anyway. This Chilean species has cheery soft yellow flowers facing up in spring and fun cottonballs of white seed seed heads which are nicely ornamental.
Oreocharis auricula
Oreocharis auricula
Price: $14.00
In Stock

Quart Pot
This is from seed collected in 2010 at 3500' from cliffs on the lower slopes of Fanjingshan in Guizhou. What fun it was to see this gesneriad in the wild! Purplish flowers are held on short 4" stems and this is a must-have if you fancy Afican Violets and Streptocarpus. Frost-free and good drainage.
Tricyrtis ohsumiensis
Tricyrtis ohsumiensis
Price: $10.00
In Stock

4" Band Pot
Uncommon Toad Lily that is is uncommonly hard to find as well as uncommonly beautiful. Bold broad leaves clasp sturdy stems which support big yellow flowers at their terminus. Less vigorous than its brethren it is nonetheless plenty stout of heart and a true jewel in the garden.
Cardamine pratensis 'Salzach'
Cardamine pratensis 'Salzach'
Price: $10.00
In Stock

4" Pot
Try to get past the uncanny steroidal resemblance to the cursed shotweed which infests every bit of cultivated soil in the temperate zones - same genus but much better manners! Double white flowers like tiny roses from soft pinkish buds. This sets no seed but roots at the leaf tips.
