Disporum uniflorum (syn. D. flavens)
Disporum uniflorum (syn. D. flavens)
Price: $15.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
Pendant clusters of yellow bells makes this a refined and classy plant for the shade garden. Makes nice clumps and effortlessly combines with so many shade-loving plants. This Korean and Japanese native is very hardy and a good doer increasingly pleasantly fast. Some Disporum are runners but this stays obediently where you plant it. It is one of the few yellow-flowered species in the genus and for us has proven to be one of the easiest in the garden.
Gladiolus 'Ruby'

Large Band 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.

Our native Fawnlily which grows from California up to BC. It is difficult to imagine having too many of these but judging from the copious self-sown seedlings in our shade garden, we'll soon see. Dormant in early summer so they aren't in the way. Pink flowers, leaves mottled when young

A very lovely selection of this terrestrial and sometime lithophytic orchid. These are hardy outside in mild winters or given protection. They need great drainage like planted in moss on a rock or in a stump or rotting log and protected during severe cold snaps. Traditionally grown in pots and brought in a cool spot for the winter, these are quite easy.

Gallon Pot
This is a newer release (2008) from Oregon State University's Agriculture Experiment Station which takes the contorted filbert to the next level. This hybrid was bred to have red leaves which holds their color long into the season, a contorted habit and complete resistance to eastern filbert blight and we can only say "Job well done". This will be a very ornamental shrub to eventual small tree with a spreading habit so give it some room. The old standby contorted filbert, Harry Lauder's Walking Stick, eventually seemed to outgrow the majority of spaces where it was planted so we would anticipate this to be the same. In ten years, this can be 6'-8' tall and 5' or more wide and you can extrapolate from there. Very hardy - to zone 4 and this makes an wonderful container plant. The plants we are offering are nicely rooted single stem "whips" that unlike the old green contorted filbert, won't have understock suckering up from below the graft union.

Large Band Pot
An interesting Monkshood species from a Philip MacDougall collection in Taiwan. This has large dusky blue-purple flowers on 2'-3' stems in mid summer and is not so tall so as to require support. This does well for us in full sun but might be even better in half sun. It has been a reliable performer and a nice change from the typical Dutch and Euro selections.

No shipping to the State of: MD Highly regarded in the Uk and Europe but not well known on this side of the pond but we are trying to correct that. Beautifully grown in Linda McDonald's garden which should be reason enough for anyone to grow it. Coarse and hirsute foliage to 2' with reddish flowers on 4; stems.

Large Band Pot
We are suckers for any Allium allied to Allium karataviense (some serious alliteration going on) because they all have the most wonderful pleated broad foliage and good globe shaped flower heads and this is one of the best and seldom seen outside of bulb specialists. A larger plant than its cousin with longer leaves and taller flower stems to 14" with a nice spherical display of purple-violet florets. This is from the dry hills of Tajikistan so a good summer drying is a good thing which will fit right into that xeriscape.
Rudbeckia maxima

Large Band Pot
Large Coneflower. If size is important to you and we probably won't believe you if you say it isn't, then give this one a whirl. Huge paddles of 24" long by 8"-10" wide glaucous blue-tinged basal green leaves makes striking clumps which can be evergreen in mild winters. In June and July, stems to 8' hold big yellow flowers with drooping petals and cones up to 6" long. This makes an eyecatching statement in the border especially grouped in a large border or can serve as that Punctuation Point of Drama as a single plant. Either way, this brings the action. Leave the seedheads up as they look good and the goldfinches will think it is the all-you-can-eat buffet. Flowers are good cut and if you want to short the finches, the seed heads are nice dried.

This is a surprisingly hardy terrestrial Orchid that is quite easy to grow given a couple of rules. Loose crumbly organic/gritty well-drained soil and fairly dry in the winter. Oh yeah, real cold is not the best either. We have friends who grow these easily in nearby Port Ludlow in rotting logs, stumps and deep moss on rocks with a tarp thrown over in winter to shed rain but that is in a mild maritime garden. Traditionally this is grown in containers and overwintered in a cool sunroom or coldframe. Were making this sound harder than it is and we don't mean to as it is worth the minimal fuss. Pink and white Cattleya-type flowers on such a little plant. This increases freely by small bulblets which is how we have come to offer these to you.

We sold this for some years as triphyllum ssp. pusillum before being enlightened that it is the closely related Russain Far East Arisaema amurense. Similar but different. Fun having a new species! An easy Jack in the Pulpit increasing nicely my offsets. Good moist soil.

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.

Merry Bells. One of our favorite of the Midwest and Eastern woodland wildflowers. Rich gold pendant flowers dangling like earrings on a woman of some serious substance. Combines beautifully with upper crust plants such as Cardiocrinums and Arisaemas yet hangs comfortably with box store Hostas. These are divisions from our stock plants.

Our collection from the Siskiyou Mts in southern Oregon of this moisture-loving lily. We were out looking at interesting plant populations with expert guide Phyllis Gustafson and she showed us this fine stand in seed growing in full sun in the wet drainage coming from a massive Darlingtonia fen well up on the hillside. Reddish-orange Turk's cap flowers with the red more pronounced toward the ends of the tepals or petals. This is a good garden species with rhizomatous bulbs making for a good clump in time. This can also tolerate periodic inundation if that is something you are either cursed with or blessed by depending on what you are trying to grow.

Frosted Jade Ajuga. A rare Ajuga the likes of which you may have never seen. We all are familiar with the utilitarian carpeting-with-abandon slug magnet ubiquitous in gardens everywhere. This is a different critter altogether and resembles Bugleweed about as much as a Bichon Frise does a Junkyard Dawg. Stays put in a clump with erect stems to 16" with showy leaves of white, green and cream and intense violet blue flowers. This has been one of the most asked about plants in our shade garden and when we say what it is, the answer usually is "That's an Ajuga? Do you have it?" It is completely deciduous as well which is another mind boggler. And for slugs - they do like this one too but really it is mainly the new shoots in early spring so we just keep an eye on the growth and if they are getting nibbled then we go out one or two evenings and inflict bodily harm and don't much about the plant afterwards.

2 Gallon Pot - IN STORE PICK UP ONLY
Excellent form of the species from our 2010 seed collection on the slopes of Leigongshan in Guizhou, China at 5600'. Steve Hootman was lucky enough to see this population in flower so we know what they look like. Nicely packed flowers more horizontal than pendulous with more purple in the throat than typical and frankly more attractive than typical. We were dancing in the woods when we saw the tall seed stalks marching up the slope and can only imagine what we will do when we see them flower! Previously offered as C, giganteum CGG14022 which was an inexplicable typo on the collection number.

Fantastic selection of the Japanese Painted Fern with silvery fronds with slightly curved pinnae and interiors vividly marked in purple and burgundy. This has good vigor and good clump of this is actually pretty much regal. We've been fighting the fern bug for years but it has finally gotten a good grip on us. This blazes all spring and summer into early fall and then being deciduous and sensible, disappears for winter.

These are bulbs from the 2010 CGG seed collecting expedition. We were on the highest peak in the Damingshan which admittedly isn't high by mountainous standards but is still exposed to infrequent wintery blasts. This is not far from the Vietnam border in Guangxi Province and the flora has much in common with that of Vietnam which is hardly surprising. This smaller Arisaema from 4400' was perhaps 18"-24" tall with the withered remnants a radial leaflet arrangement such as would be seen in A. consanguineum for example and came to our attention by the showy reddish fruit cluster laying on the mossy bank.. These young bulbs are already making little detached offsets so it will be a nice increaser and these flower young. Quite nice flowers which are essentially green with white striping on the spathe tube while the spathe hood and long whip appendage are colored in variably from a touch of buff to a nice mocha. No idea yet what species it is but when we get it sorted out, we'll let you know. We're saying hardy to zone 7 but we are usually very conservative so would not be surprised by zone 6 with mulch.

This has consistently been a head-turner here when it is in flower. A hybrid by Butterfield and registered in 1981, this fine selection is finally becoming available. Rich pink flowers of good size and a large fringed lip or slipper pouch which is decked out in orange-pink spots with the interior all orange ruffles and flourishes. A good increaser and best suited for pot culture where it can be brought in and left to go dormant in a cool spot over winter. Unless of course you garden in a very mild setting and then this is great outdoors where it can be tucked into a partially shaded rotting log or mossy rock outcrop. Pleione orchids require excellent drainage and we've seen them in China and Arunachal Pradesh growing on mossy cliffs or tree trunks.
Nerine 'Pink Triumph' - Dutch Form
Nerine 'Pink Triumph' - Dutch Form
Price: $16.00
In Stock

Large Band Pot
Nerines are like having a fall blooming Christmas Amaryllis in the garden except these are hardy to zone 7. Where it is colder, these are a snap to grow in pot and as they flower from leafless bulbs in the autumn, you can enjoy the flowers indoors and after blooming, simply cut off the stem and store them in a cool garage until spring when you can bring them out and the leaves begin to grow.

The original Nerine 'Pink Triumph' was given an Award of Garden Merit in 1957 by the RHS and is presumed to be a hybrid of Nerine bowdenii and N. undulata with larger flowers than N. bowdenii and later blooming in December. This original plant may be difficult to near impossible to find as virtually all the 'Pink Triumph' in cultivation are from a Dutch source and incorrectly named. This is not necessarily all bad from a garden worthiness standpoint as this may well be a selected form of N. bowdenii since it blooms earlier in the fall thus not as prone to frost damage plus the Dutch usually select for good increasers of which this certainly is one. The upshot is that while this is incorrectly named, it is going to be a better plant for the garden being hardier, more apt to avoid having its flowers frosted and having very good rich pink flowers. Nerines bring a totally unexpected blast of exotica to the fall garden and look particularly good in Mediterranean style plantings.

Chinese Mayapple. One of the great shade plants with just outrageous new growth when the bold and distinctly lobed leafed are colored as if in ochre velvet and patterned as if on psychedelics. The broadly rounded acutely lobed leaves shield the red flowers beneath. The foliage will green up as the season progresses but it is pure magic in the spring. If yours is green when you get it, just wait until next spring! There is a distinct possibility that there might be whispers of hybridity in these plants as our collection here has become a rather joyous maelstrom of Mayapples. Haven't had anyone complain yet about theirs having possible hybrid vigor. Rich moist soil and avoid direct sun.

This has grown - quite literally - into one of our favorite plants. Much like an Eremurus or Foxtail Lily in effect as it gets long basal strappy leaves and a 4'-6' tall branched flower spikes in May and June with lots of pale peach tinted white flowers opening from reddish-striped buds.. The foliage withers away in summer making way for the slower arriving stars of summers end - the dahias and asters and salvias and such. Anytime we can get double duty out of a little plot, we feel pretty clever. We leave the dried seedheads standing tall and sculptural well into spring. Our plant in the garden has 11 flowering stems on it and every year it gets better. It is a bit like a peony that way - it takes awhile to get going but once there, it has the potential to become an heirloom plant as it is quite long lived. Full sun is best and hardy to Zone 5 at least.

A newly registered (2011) martagon hybrid that is a garden delight. Martagon hybrids are just amazing plants and this one has numerous pendant flowers with recurved orange-red tepals (petals) and a broad yellow flare splashed with crimson spots on it's face. This one seems to increase especially fast on its own from division and self-scaling bulblets so it won't be long before you have a serious floral statement! These are our bulbs grown by us to flowering size and not unhappy imports. Dug onsite and potted within the hour - fresh from our garden to yours!

Our collection from Guizhou in an area famed for its vast diversity and density of Rhododendron species. It was really quite staggering to see the Rhododendrons dominate the landscape even in the fall when all was out of flower. This little Mondo Grass grew as part of the herbaceous understory and had narrow evergreen leaves to 6" with 8" flower stems bearing up to 7 glossy blue-black fruits. Part of our mission here at the nursery is to provide wild-sourced plants in genera that is confused taxonomically in hopes more light can be shed.

Rollicking twining Monkshood from China that delights in scrambling up into shrubs or onto thin trellage. Although a fine and aristocratic perennial, it remains devoid of snobbery embracing chainlink as if it were ornate wrought iron at an Antebellum mansion. Dusky lavender flowers in late summer and fall are hugely welcome. This is totally herbaceous dying completely back after flowering only to reemerge in spring bigger and better than before. The climbing Aconitum can be confusing to pin down as to proper identity but we finally sat down with flowers and foliage and key in hand and confirmed that this indeed A. episcopale. This is likely from a Diana Reeck collection in Yunnan in 1996 but that is best guessing. Nice blooming-sized plants.
