Actaea rubra f. neglecta Actaea rubra f. neglecta

A subtle woodlander for most of spring and summer until late summer and fall when it suddenly busts a move and starts strutting its stuff.  Fern-like foliage backs small white puffs of flowers in May which become showy clusters of bright white fruit in late summer & fall.  The white version of our red fruited native.

Ajuga 'Loie's Lavender' Ajuga 'Loie's Lavender'

Named by plant guru John Flintoff who found this as an interesting seedling growing in plantswoman Loie Benedict's garden. Light green leaves with a spreading habit and flowers of a soft muted lavender which happily goes with most everything. As long as the soil is reasonably moist, this will be good in sun to light shade and is resistant to deer and rabbits.

Excellent little Asian Allium that is very nice with small heads of white flowers.

Bog Rosemary. This is a compact selection to just 6" tall and spreading with the gray-green needle-like leaves often taking on a red edge.  The short stems are hung with small pink bells in late spring which are enjoyed by bees.  Related to Rhododendrons and Heather, this likes a moist acidic spot in part sun.  Very hardy to zone 3.

Andromeda polifolia 'Nana' Andromeda polifolia 'Nana'

Compact Bog Rosemary with the evergreen gray-green narrow leaves like the needles of some conifer and stand ascendant along the short stems arising from slowly spreading stoloniferous underground stems.  All this is good but the small white bell flowers are better in late spring.  Moist and some shade from hot sun.  Really hardy.

Aquilegia formosa Aquilegia formosa

Our native Columbine from seed collected on the way up to Mt Townsend in the Olympics.  One of our most endearing natives with pendulous flowers which have reddish petals and spurs backing a soft yellow cup.  This has a grace and charm so lacking in the garden hybrids.  One of the first wildflowers I learned tottering around in the woods.

Aruncus aethusifolius Aruncus aethusifolius

Dwarf Goat's Beard.  One of the top perennials of all time.  Tightly packed ferny foliage and short dense plumes of white flowers in early to mid summer.  Hardy as all get out and completely trouble free.  If you screw this up then we beg you - please give up gardening.  Just not very dry, that's all.

Seed of this Birch was collected on an expedition to the Georgian Caucasus by Sweden's Goteborg Botanic Garden.  Betula litwinowii is intermediate between B. pendula and B. pubescens and some authorities have placed this as a subspecies of B. pendula.   Mature trees in the wild showed excellent white bark.  Hardy to zone 3.

Betula michauxii Betula michauxii

Very choice dwarf Birch which Sue brought with her from Vermont.  This is native to eastern Canada and we've stumped every hort illuminati as to species and all but one or two as to genus.  It looks like some crazy dwarf Ceonothus with dense stems and closely held leaves.  Rare?  I guess!

Campanula lactiflora NCE219 Campanula lactiflora NCE219

This Campanula was collected in Russia at Karachayevo-Cherkessiya, Terbeda, Gonachkir Valley at 1800 meters so next time you are there, keep an eye peeled for it.  This potentially can reach 3'-5' tall in flower with nice heads of pale lavender to white flowers in midsummer.  Is it hardy, you ask?  Da!

White Arctic Heather.  Cute little heather relative from the high mountains of Washington and Montana spreading broadly across Canada and Alaska.  This gets just 4"-8" tall and spreading with white bells in late spring.  Needs a cool spot with acidic soil that drains well but never dries out.  This might be var. saximontana since it has been easy to grow.

Comptonia peregrina Comptonia peregrina

Sweet Fern.  A woody native to the East Coast where it forms nice clumps by underground rhizomes.  A plant we in the West ooh and aah over but taken for granted on the other coast.  Fragrant foliage and used by the First Nation peoples as incense. Small catkins in spring.

Convallaria majalis 'Albostriata'

Nice striped leaf version of the familiar Lily of the Valley.  This sometimes throws a reversion of solid green leaves but is mainly the cool gold striped foliage.  If the green reversion continues into the next year then a surgical excision with your Hori-Hori is indicated.  Easy and nice.

Convallaria majalis 'Crème De Mint' Convallaria majalis 'Cream da Mint'

Lily of the Valley.  A good selection of this stalwart species with a yellow margin to the leaves and said leaves are larger than average as well.  Typical scented white flowers.  There are numerous spellings of the cultivar name but since this is an American introduction, we can only assume this is correct.  Sad.

A robust selection of Lily of the Valley from Hardwick Hall in England and notable for the creamy margin to the leaves which can extend to some sporadic striping.  Nicely scented white flowers in April.  This is one of the classic and desired selections and always in short supply.  Tough as nails.  Deer resistant.

Convallaria majalis 'Prolificans' Convallaria majalis 'Prolificans'

This Lily of the Valley gives the impression that it is a double flowered form but instead each bell-shaped flower is joined by as many 6 other flowers giving the impression of that it double. A good grower and excellent scent. Tough as nails. Hardy enough to grow in areas that get so cold you should just move if you want to garden.

Classic spring epehemeral of the eastern woodlands with ferny foliage in early spring and white flowers in March.  This will go dormant by late spring and is an excellent little plant to grow on top of later growing shade loving lily species or Arisaemas so that you get double duty out of the same planting spot.

One of the great common names, Rattlesnake Master, which refers to historic usage for treating rattler bites.

Dog Tooth Violet.  There are no bad Erythroniums and this is near the top of the heap.  Dark pink flowers are infused with a blue tinge giving them a wonderful lilac color and creating an easy shortcut to naming this cultivar.  A star in the shade garden with nice mottled foliage.

Erythronium dens-canis 'Purple King" Erythronium dens-canis 'Purple King'

This really would benefit from the heraldry of trumpets when it blooms since royalty does enjoy the pomp of lavish circumstance.  But the flowers are such a nice fuchsia purplish pink with a red throat that the trumpets and all the trappings are implied.  And with the same good mottled leaves.

Erythronium dens-canis 'Snowflake' Erythronium dens-canis 'Snowflake'

I love white flowers in the shade garden.  The juxtaposition against the dark earth and the interplay and mediation with other colors makes white an excellent choice.  (Don't get me wrong, I'm voting for Obama)  These have pure white flowers with a light chartreuse throat touched faintly in red.

Filipendula camschatica

Sue grew this in her northern Vermont garden from seed she received from Dr. Alexandra Berkutenko who collected it in eastern Russia..  No cold we or you will ever have will faze this tough Cossack.  This grows in our border where the wetland laps at its feet and we get 8' stems bearing clouds of white flowers.

Galanthus 'John Gray' Galanthus 'John Gray'

A choice Snowdrop with very large single flowers and one of the earliest to come into bloom.  This was found in the garden of John Gray in England and is a hard one to come by.  Increases moderately well and seems to be a survivor.

Galanthus nivalis 'Viridiapice' Galanthus nivalis 'Viridiapice'

Fun form of the common Snowdrop which was found in Holland in the last century by Johannes Hoog who was one of the great Dutch bulb guys. This is instantly recognizable by the green thumbprint on the outside of each petal at the tips. The other good thing about this one is that it increases just as nicely as the regular one which is a classic naturalizer in shade gardens.
