Abies balsamea 'Piccolo' Abies balsamea 'Piccolo'

A German selection of dwarf Balsam Fir and a superior cultivar than the more readily available 'Nana'. Hardly surprising that the Germans would have a superior cultivar and if enough of these get planted, they might counteract Volkswagen's emissions cover-up. Grows just 1"-3" per year and reaches 2'x2' in 10 years.  Zone 3-8.

Achillea grandifolia Achillea grandifolia

Imposing perennial to 4' or more with stout stems holding large corymbs of small whitish flowers most of the summer.  Pretty awesome plant for a Yarrow and a hard one to come by and thanks to Gayle Richardson for sharing this with us.  Bold enough to fit in the tropical look, hardy enough to grow nearly anywhere and the deer don't like it - sign me up!

Aconitum sp. PMD Aconitum sp. PMD

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.
