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 bulbuliferum ‘Monk Gone Wild' CDHM14523 Aconitum bulbuliferum ‘Monk Gone Wild' CDHM14523

Our collection of this distinctive viningMonkshood from the wooded slopes of Longshou in Sichuan.   We think this is quite superior to other color forms of this rare species and have given it the name 'Monk Gone Wild' because it is a pretty crazy color for a Monkshood plus this monk managed to remain technically celibate yet still have lots of children via stem bulbils.

Aconitum episcopale - select Aconitum episcopale - select

This is a clone of this climbing Monkshood species which initialy caught our eye as being subtly different than the other form we offer.  This has some yellowish mottling to the foliage and appeals to our geeky natures as being a little different.  Same light blue flowers as the typical form.  This will climb to 10' or more and drape itself upon a handy shrub or trellis.

Aconitum hemsleyanum CGG14028 Aconitum hemsleyanum CGG14028

This is from our seed collection on the Chongqing-Guangxi-Guizhou expedition in 2010.  We found this on the summit of the previously unbotanized highest peak in the Wumingshan where it was clambering about on the top of the short scrub.  We were struck by the large seed pods.  Light blue flowers on this vining Monkshood.

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.

Good for trellises or running up into large shrubs, small trees or wire fence panels. Pretty darned easy.

A fine evergreen Maidenhair Fern from a naturally occurring hybrid between Adiantum aleuticum and A. jordanii.  These are a different clone than the "original clone" and no less desireable with the same fine and wholesome attributes.  Maidenhairs have always been one of the quintessential ferns in our estimation and this is a choice one.
