Alstroemeria 'Glory of the Andes'
Alstroemeria 'Glory of the Andes'
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
This is a very desirable Peruvian Lily which has 3' stems bearing fragrant vivid gold flowers daubed in the interior with maroon. The cream-edged foliage is just a bonus. Spreads slowly but steadily so as not to be scary. Great cut flower but pull the stems rather than cutting as they will last better. Not for dry gardens.
Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance'

4" Pot
Autumn Fern. There's common names for you. Don't expect fireworks in the fall from this one because you get them all spring and summer with the new fronds unfurling a pinky coppery red before they age to the expected green. Very showy and an excellent evergreen to semi evergreen fern.
Coprosma 'Black Cloud'
Coprosma 'Black Cloud'
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
This is a HARDY Coprosma! Ok, hardy for us anyway. Unscathed in full exposure in the McLaughlin garden during the rough winter of 08 where it took low teens without a whimper where it is a bushy 5' fine textured shrub. Mocha black green evergreen small leaves take on varying shades with the seasons. Blackish spidery witch hazel flowers merit close inspection. There aren't many woody plants bringing this color to the garden and fewer yet with any degree of hardiness.
Lilium auratum
Lilium auratum
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Medium Band Pot
Unbelievable that this incredible lily grows wild in the woodlands of Japan. Obvious to see who the parent of the oriental lily hybrids is - Lilium auratum! Huge white flowers the size of a plate of Fugu with shades of yellowish banding and dark speckling coupled with a heady fragrance.
Adiantum venustum
Price: $12.00
In Stock

4" Pot
Himalayan Maidenhair Fern. Evergreen to semi-evergreen creeping fern making the the most textural groundcover imaginable. Salmon pink new growth goes to light olive and finally green leaflets on black wiry stems just 8"-12" high. Likes a loose moist soil but will tolerate dry when established.
Astrantia 'Moulin Rouge' PP16549
Astrantia 'Moulin Rouge' PP16549
Price: $15.00

Large Band Pot
This is a keeper. Button-shaped flowers combining green and burgundy in delightful structural detail. These reportedly dry well and are champs as cut flowers lasting a couple weeks. This is anecdotal because like when do we have time to do arrangements?
Allium wallichii CDHM14526
Allium wallichii CDHM14526
Price: $10.00
In Stock

Small Band Pot
A good dark version of this widespread Allium from our collection in southern Sichuan in October of 2012. We had originally described this as being light pink based on some pale October flowers lingering in the cold mists of Sichuan. There were seed heads from earlier flowers and we assumed that these would be the same insipid pink as what was before us but fortunately these turned out different in a very positive way. The individual florets are darker and spaced farther apart than our CGG collection two years earlier and both have their own merits. A very easy plant in the garden getting up to 20" tall and having the added bonus of being edible which might be useful down the line if the Allium hits the fan so to speak..
Polygonatum x hybridum "Purple Blush"
Polygonatum x hybridum "Purple Blush"
Price: $16.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
Purple Blush is not the real name but a descriptive name we have given it. This is similar to if not the same as Polygonatum x hybridum 'Bitburg' which is a coveted form for the smokey slate-purple new growth which in early spring can you leave you transfixed especially paired with white Trilliums.
Ellisiophyllum pinnatum
Ellisiophyllum pinnatum BSWJ 197
Price: $10.00

4" Pot
Nifty groundcover introduced from Taiwan by Crûg Farm in Wales and these are divisions from plants we grew from the original seed collection. This is a good spreader though very easy to keep in bounds which makes it nice to share. This prefers a loose organic rich soil that retains moisture - think Primroses. Great under shrubs and perennials and forms a feathery dense mat with white starry flowers. Evergreen unless very cold. We saw this in Guizhou in the fall of 2010 on the the summit of perhaps the tallest peak in the Wumingshan and it was nice to see a familiar face.

Asarum canadense 'Eco Choice'

Seldom offered selection by Don Jacobs of Eco Gardens, this has exceptional vigor and and very dense growth habit. Really an ideal groundcover for that small area if you are going for the monoculture look as this is going to own its little piece of ground. But not in a bad way - our patch is finally big enough to share. Nice under taller perennials such as Leucosceptrum or shrubs. Heart shaped deciduous leaves shade funny small urn-shaped brownish flowers. A denizen of the moist northern woods, this is a good addition to the shade garden and seemingly tough as nails given moist shade.
Zingiber mioga
Zingiber mioga
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
Mioga Ginger. A treasured food crop in Japan where the new shoots are prized as a vegetable and the flower buds are considered a delicacy when diced and added to soup. This is a true ginger although it lacks the big rhizome of the culinary variety. What it does have over the gingerbread ginger is hardiness. This is the hardiest of the Zingibers and our friend Aaron Floden tells us he grew this in Kansas without any special protection and temperatures regularly got to -15F and it did not suffer. This clumps up quickly in rich moist soil in shade with 3' green leafy stems and produces exotic small orchid-like creamy yellow flowers at ground level in late summer and fall. It's a no-brainer for fall cleanup because the leaf stalks turn yellow and fall over breaking off cleanly from the crown so all you have to do is pick them up. Or not if you are into self-mulching plants.
Disporum longistylum 'Night Heron'

Excellent selection from the former Heronswood nursery of this robust woodlander noted for the dark hued stems especially in the new growth. This is an exuberant grower sending up big dark chocolate asparagus spears of new growth in late spring which branch out as they get taller bearing small creamy-green bells followed by glistening small black fruit. The young leaves carry some of coloring of the new growth and the whole plant retains this color better if grown in sun in our mild sun climate. In our shade garden, the foliage matures to a very pleasing dark olive-green and seems like some impressive cousin to bamboo as it can each 5'-6' tall. We always mulch ours in winter as we don't want to freeze out the crown and the new growth can start early here in the PNW so this mulch protects it from getting frosted. An easy and stunning plant. This was and still is offered as a selection of Disporum cantoniense but we thank Bleddyn Wynn-Jones for correctly identifying this as to species.
Hedychium densiflorum - orange
Hedychium densiflorum - orange
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
One of the most satisfying and reliable of the hardy Gingers. We've grown this Nepalese beauty for years now and it always blooms in mid to late summer with flowers of the most gentle orange. This is a good increaser in moist loose soil and looks marvelous in half sun or bright shade. This does not need a long warm Fall to flower but relishes our cool pseudosummers here in the Puget Sound. We mulch ours in the fall to keep frost for reaching the rhizome and basically other than that we just water and feed it. Very low care. These are big bare-root divisions.
Hedychium spicatum NAPE 119
Hedychium spicatum NAPE 119
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
A hardy Ginger relative from our seed collection just a long days drive from the Tibetan border. Narrow petals of white and peach are floral whimsy and always manage to coax a smile out of us. The unscented flowers compensate for that lack by having one of the showiest seed displays in the genus. This collection seems to be distinctly shorter than other forms of spicatum we grow. Mulch in winter. These are big divisions and will be sent as dormant and bare root plants only so spring shipping.
Ulmus x hollandica 'Jacqueline Hillier'
Ulmus x hollandica 'Jacqueline Hillier'
Price: $15.00
(Out of Stock)

4" 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.
