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 hemsleyanum H2MD 003 Aconitum hemsleyanum H2MD 003

This vining monkshood is from our seed collection of this herbaceous vine which was growing in a large shrub hanging out over a stream in a cold rain.  The potential for becoming even wetter was pretty good and fortunately, such a risk proved well worth it as this has large blue flowers with a pale white lip.  This has been a star in our shade garden flowering in late August into September.

Allium sp. AF 2015 Allium species

This is an unusual Allium from a seed collection in China. We say unusual because the small drumstick heads of flowers are yellow which was not expected. This is a smaller species with thin grassy leaves and flower stems 5"-9" tall and requires summer water as it is not one of the bulbous types. This shows no sign of being a "damned weedy onion" and merits a special spot.

Allium wallichii ex China Allium wallichii ex China (DJHC 98307)

A good dark flowered form of Allium wallichii from China.  Although the individual florets are fewer in number in the flower heads, the rich purple color more than compensates.  This species is eaten by the local indigenous peoples although that wild crafting is becoming less frequent as grocery stores are awfully easy.  Not difficult..

Anemonastrum coelestinum Anemonastrum coelestinum (syn. Anemone trullifolia var. linearis)

This former Anemone is one we first became acquainted with in John Massey's impeccable garden at Ashwood Nursery.  We didn't know what it was but it grabbed our attention which is saying something in that candy store of a garden.  A small plant that would be well-suited for a moist rock garden setting, it has simple, soft yellow flowers and distinctive green leaves.

Anemone obtusiloba cf. Clone A Anemone obtusiloba cf. Clone A

From a Chinese source as Anemone subpinnata, this is likely obtusiloba although there are other similar species.  This has proved very floriferous and durable over the years making a good robust clump with lots of white flowers opening from rose-colored buds.  These are nice plants from divisions.

Anemone obtusiloba 'Large Blue' Anemone obtusiloba ex 'Big Blue'

Seedlings from this very good form of the very variable Anemone obtusiloba which ranges at higher altitudes across the Himalaya into western China.  Our mama plant came home with us from Scotland and is notable for larger blue flowers with 3-4 extra petals beyond the usual 5.  We expect these youngsters to carry on the family tradition.

Arisaema dilatatum Arisaema dilatatum

Excellent Chinese species which has grown and multiplied in our garden for 15 years.  Broad trifoliate leaves with flowers sporting a swollen yellow spadix held below the foliage. Once pollinated, the stem bearing the fruiting head elongates until the red fruit is held well above the leaves.  In Sichuan, we saw this flowering amidst carpets of Corydalis flexuosa in bloom - no wonder their spadices were dilated!

Asarum caudigerellum Asarum caudigerellum

Great foliage on this Wild Ginger from China which keys most closely to the species caudigerellum. A mist of white spray droplets on the leaves is especially vivid on the young foliage making this very desirable.  Small tan to soft red flowers are a welcome addition. We have seen nice clumps of presumably this species in Vietnam looking fabulous on the forest floor among the bright buff trunks of Camellia trees.

Aster souliei Aster souliei MD 97

A very attractive introduction by us from Yunnan if we do say so.  Broad lightly hairy leaves in a dense clump with lots of large soft lavender daisy flowers fringed heavily in very fine petals surround a prominent dark "cone".  Doesn't rebloom - just does it right the first time.

Asteropyrum peltatum Asteropyrum peltatum

One of the jewels in the tiara of shade garden royalty which is supposed to sound aristocratic and appealing and I believe it does. Put this little Chinese gem in a special spot where you can enjoy the white flowers over the patterned foliage. This would likely thrive in a moist rotting stump. Found up to 12000' in alpine meadows, we've also seen a tiny form in forests in Chongqing.

A Dan Hinkley collection from Mt Emei and touted as being hardy to Z7 but only by those in serious zonal denial.  That said, a customer told his that he mulches his deeply and it has survived our worst winters.  An attractive plant with late season pink flowers and well worth trying in a sheltered spot.
