Parent plant thriving in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood.

Our collection from Asia of this fine medium sized tree.  The usually 3-lobed (sometimes 5) leaves are handsome indeed with the new growth often flushed with a light copper overlay.  Excellent at the woodland edge or partly shaded garden sheltered from the worst of the drying sun and wind which plagues us here.

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 Aconitum episcopale

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.

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.

Adinandra glischroloma var. glischroloma CDHM14694 Adinandra glischroloma var. glischroloma CDHM14694

An evergreen shrub to 10' in the wild with long slightly drooping olive-green leaves prominently hirsute especially along the margins. Flowers are small and white and give way to small black fruit. We are thinking hardy to zone 8.

Akebia trifolia ssp. australis DJHS4207 Akebia trifolia ssp. australis DJHS4207

A vigorous evergreen vine with trifoliate leaves collected by Dan Hinkley in Sichuan which has purplish flowers and bears fairly enormous purplish or yellowish fruit, that look like fat bananas. Quite the fantastical garden element when these ripen in late summer and fall!  This is vigorous so a stout trellis or strong supporting tree is required.

Our collection at 9000'  from the summit of highest peak in the Wuming Shan in SW China.  This Allium was prevalent in the grazed grass and scrub summit with tall 12"-20" scapes and nice 2"+ half dome pink flowers.  The local minority people harvest the bulbs for food.  This was the first Western botanical foray to this mountain.

Allium wallichii ex China Allium wallichii ex China

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..

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.

Anemone stolonifera 'Flore Plena' Anemone stolonifera 'Flore Plena'

Very sweet little Asian creeper for the woodland or partly sunny garden bed.  This form with its small white and fully double flowers is very appealing and the flowers are nicely in scale with the diminutive leaves.  A nice alternative to the European Anemone nemorosa clan and can be used in much the same way.

Asarum maximum Asarum maximum

Panda Wild Ginger.  Big, glossy, almost succulent leaves shelter one of the grand floral surprises you can have in the garden.  In spring, a simple bending over - getting less simple each year - and a parting of the overlapping leaves reveals LOL clusters of big black and white ridiculous panda flowers.

Aster souliei Aster souliei

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.

Begonia emeiensis DJHC98479 Begonia emeiensis DJHC98479

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.

Begonia hemsleyana Begonia hemsleyana

Eye-catching species from China with palmate leaves spritzed with white on top and a bright maroon underneath.  The pink flowers are just another layer of adornment as we are always completely satisfied with the leaves alone.  Hardy to zone 8 with a little mulch in winter.  This is slow to go in the spring, waiting until June but it catches right up.

Begonia muliensis Begonia muliensis

A rhizomatous species out of China, we're guessing from around Muli, that has reasonable hardiness and is well worth trying in zone 8 gardens especially if you mulch. A low and densely clumping species with bright pink flowers late in summer.

Begonia pedatifida - Hardy Begonia Begonia pedatifida - Hardy Begonia

Another one of those shouldn't-be-hardy-but-is begonias.  This comes from Mt Emei in China and does fine here in our PNW zone 8 moist shaded gardens especially if you mulch it.  Excellent long-fingered foliage to 18" tall cloak the pink flowers which are a nice hidden surprise in late summer.

Hardy tuberous-type Begonia from China that increases well from offsets as well as little aerial bulblets so you get a good clump reasonably soon.  Not a garden pest and even if it was how pesty could this cutie be?  Clean green leaves and pink flowers to bring late color to the shade garden. Good moisture retentive soil that drains is best.

Begonia sp. U584 Begonia sp. U584

Impressive hardy begonia collected by Ozzie Johnson on Emei Shan in Sichuan.  This rhizomatous species looks tender as all get out but has overwintered in a number of Zone 7b gardens - admittedly not 7b for weeks at a time but still - heck yeah!  Brilliant red undersides and a burnished upper surface to the leaves are meant to go with the white flowers.

Begonia sp. MD12-42 Begonia sp.. MD12-42

Rhizomatous species from southern China with excellent foliage colored light red on the underside and olive-buff green on top with a ring of silver-white spots just in from the margin.  This makes a fine clump to 20" tall in a container, more than holding its own with just foliage but the late season white flowers are welcome frosting on this particular Begonia cake.
