Campanula persicifolia 'Blue Bloomers'
Campanula persicifolia 'Blue Bloomers'
Price: $12.00
(Out of Stock)

4" Band Pot
Exceptional double Campanula we received via Bob Brown's Cotswold Garden Flowers in England. This has big medium blue flowers like 2 shallow cups nested together. These are on strong stems which don't blow over and we can testify to that living on the windswept Port Townsend Steppe. This is a good performer and one that has the panache to mingle in the trendy garden as well as carrying a classic look that works in the cottage or Victorian garden. Or in our case it shines in our looking-for-a-genre sunny border.
Polygonatum odoratum 'Flore Pleno'

Large Band Pot
Double Flowered Solomon's Seal. Hard to come by and desirable double form of this excellent garden plant. The extra petals looks like a little green rose when you lift one of the dangling white bells and peer inside. It is one of those little surprises that makes the garden so fun.
Aster 'Kylie'
Aster 'Kylie'
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
Award of Merit Aster from England which makes a profuse cloud of small pale pink flowers in large billowy display on arching stems. Nice tall stems and thin fine-textured leaves adds to the whole package. Pretty exceptional in the realm of Asters and one which Carol Klein calls "an immensely pretty plant". 'Kylie' is also a rare interspecific hybrid between Aster novae-angliae 'Andenken an Alma Potschke' and Aster ericoides 'White Heather'. We know Asters have been segregated into a bunch of unpleasant sounding genera but we're not there yet. When shipped in the fall, we'll need to cut this plant back.
Omphalodes verna 'Grandiflora'
Omphalodes verna 'Grandiflora'
Price: $12.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
Surely one of the best Omphalodes with electric blue flowers nearly twice the size of the species. This was shared with us by our plant guru John Flintoff who has given us so many treasures over the years. A vigorous and not fussy coarse foliaged groundcover perfect under Rhododendrons and one that is easy to keep in bounds. Those blue Forget-me-not flowers somehow just seems to feel like an integral part of spring for us. These are divisions potted this winter and won't be rooting out until later this spring. Just so you know. This disclosure is our version of making our tax returns public.
Paris polyphylla

Medium Band Pot
A true collector's gem from the Himalayan foothills is this Trillium relative. Winner of the Most Complex Green Flower Award, this has interesting and quietly lovely flowers followed in summer by riotous orange-red fruit. Very cool. These are nice big bulbs. Basic Trillium culture.
Mertensia maritima (simplicissima)
Mertensia maritima (simplicissima)

4" Band Pot
Love this plant and we'll never garden without it. From the northern beaches of New England to Greenland and Japan to Alaska comes this beaut. Lustrous blue leaves and terminal clusters of small sky blue flowers puts this in a class all by itself. The possibilities of dynamic contrast with other plants makes you realize you just don't have enough room to capitalize on all the great ideas that come flooding in. Don't get bogged down and enervated by the choices - go with the first one - it will be great! Excellent spiller for containers if fed well. Loves a moist rich soil where it can easily be 3 feet across. Goes dormant i the fall so just nip off the stems and you are done with maintenance on this until the same time next year. Our kind of plant.
Arisaema tortuosum

Large Band Pot
Tall Jack in the Pulpit. These grow into big boys with a large green flower and distinctive vertical spadix held well above the foliage. This merits that overused word of awesome especially when it gets 5' tall and you are eye-to-eye with that intriguing flower. The showy brilliant red fruit cluster is mist welcome in early fall.
Arisaema exappendiculatum -Brown Form
Arisaema exappendiculatum -Brown Form

Large Band Pot
Rare species of Jack in the Pulpit and even rarer in this brown form. The typical folded in green spathe is washed in purplish brown in this form. Unique in this genus in having no spadix or just a nubbin so perhaps Jackless in the Pulpit is a better name. Excellent increaser, nice new growth.
Anemone x lipsiensis

4" Pot
One of the quiet stars of our shade garden is this cross between rich yellow Anemone ranunculoides and white Anemone nemorosa. The result is a vigorous small scale shade loving groundcover with profuse primrose yellow flowers. Perfect as a planting under larger plants. Moist.

Large Band Pot
Possibly also under the name 'Golden Vale', this is a lethal temptress who will get it's hooks into you eiher by it's barbed armament or it's beguiling beauty. From cuttings stolen with permission from Ann Lovejoy's old garden where it mounded and mixed with Hydrangeas.
Aquilegia chrysantha var. chaplinei
Aquilegia chrysantha var. chaplinei
Price: $12.00

Small Band Pot
This bewitching little Columbine hits me at some visceral level every time it flowers. The fine blue-green foliage is perfect with the narrow yellow flowers and their impossibly long spurs. Being childless, I can only imagine seeing your little blonde daughter in her first Easter dress and shiny new shoes - it is that kind of feeling.
Anemone nemorosa 'Vestal'

4" Pot
This little European Woods Anemone is aptly named as an established patch of this in full flower is indeed purity and chastity personified although I have enough miles on me that experiences with either purity or chastity have been relegated to the dustbin of uncertain memory. The white flowers with a central button of doubleness makes this selection the most oft requested Anemone nemorosa in our shade garden. Carol Klein once described this as "the bell of the ball" when comparing it to other Anemone nemorosa cultivars and we find nothing in that statement to dispute.
Anemone nemorosa 'Leed's Variety'
Anemone nemorosa 'Leed's Variety'
Price: $10.00

4" Pot This has been a star in our shade garden with it's extra large flowers which most regard as the largest of the Anemone nemorosa cultivars. We have this planted at the base of Disporum longistylum 'Night Heron' whose dark stems and foliage contrast nicely. "Contrast nicely"? We damn with faint praise - this totally rules as it is the perfect underplanting and this will translate to many other plants as well as the Anemone is but 10" high or less and creeps on twiggy rhizomes to make a fine, dense patch. We have always forgotten to divide this and have never had it when folks have asked for after seeing it in the garden but we have potted some up this winter. If you get these early spring of 2014, the little rhizomes won't have rooted out but no worries - they will take off in your garden!

This is an exquisite little bit of spring pleasure that was introduced by our friend Urs Baltensberger. Urs is a keen plantsman and he found this dark-leafed form growing wild in the forest on the slopes of Stammerberg in Switzerland and we are all benefiting from his sharp eye. Purplish black new growth is perfect backing for the white spring flowers in mid to late spring. The leaves will mature to typical green later in the season but that is of no consequence as the flowers will have long finished.

Superb selection of this autumn sedum from Graham Gough at Marchant's Hardy Plants in England which we can offer thanks to our friend and plantsman, the ever-generous Jim Fox. Check out Jim's book "How to Buy the Right Plants, Tools, and Garden Supplies" although if there are warnings about mail order nurseries in there, please ignore that section at least when it comes to us! This sedum can develop excellent red-burgundy foliage in full sun which complements the red flowers and all with an excellent habit which is what you would expect from one of the UK's most celebrated nurseryman..
