Primula florindae Keilor Hybrids Primula florindae Keilor Hybrids

No ignoring this Primrose in flower! Some Primula are wee subtle things with no greater effect than the sound of a distant flute teasing the edge of hearing. This Primula is a full triumphant symphony with you sitting in the orchestra pit. Big heads of many nodding orange/yellow fragrant flowers. Rich and moist.

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.

Roscoea humeana - Early Form Roscoea humeana - Early Form

We received this extraordinary selection from and equally extraordinary plantsman, David Mason of the vaunted former Hedgerows Nursery.  Few members of the genus approach this for impact which is only heightened by flowering before other large-flowered forms.   The emerging spring growth is enclosed in soft salmon sheaths and the hot damn lavender-pink flowers stand proud before the leaves develop.

Coptis omeiensis Coptis omeiensis

Beautiful clumping species that may well be the queen of the genus.  Or are we granting royalty because it is new on the scene?  Maybe, but it is awfully good. This makes a stout small clump of evergreen fern-like leaves from which emerge in spring the peculiarly Coptis greenish-yellow flowers.  From China.

Lysimachia sp. YuGu 310 Lysimachia sp. YuGu 310

An interesting Asian Lysimachia which we have not yet identified.  These genus is widespread and varied in Asia with over 170 species and varieties in China alone.  It is so much easier to key out monotypic genera where there is but a single species.  This is from lower elevations and we have not trialed it outside yet but looks frost sensitive.

A proven species for the garden, this Primula from China is in the Cortusoides section of the genus as evidenced by the broad, soft hairy leaves reminiscent of Primula kisoana but without the groundcover proclivities.  A good display of pink to rose-pink flowers on 12"-16" stems in late spring with sumptuous leaves in attendance if given light shade and a moist, organic-rich soil.

This is indeed the king.  One of our most coveted plants, this is an especially fine form from our friend Philip MacDougall.  This beauty can reach 12' tall with subtle hooks on the leaf tips to help it hang onto neighboring plants.  The best thing is the ORANGE flowers in abundance in the leaf axils.  Swoon City.

Viburnum propinquum H2MD 069 (earlier as cf. atrocyaneum Viburnum propinquum H2MD 069 (earlier as cf. atrocyaneum

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  We have gotten rather picky about collecting Viburnum as there are some that simply don't cut the mustard ornamentally but this one caused not even momentary hesitation.  Glossy evergreen leaves with constellations of small gleaming blue fruit in the fall made an altogether dashing presentation.

Bergenia purpurascens MD97 Bergenia purpurascens MD97

These are divisions from our 1997 seed collection in Yunnan China.  This is one of our favorite species (of course we could say that about any of them at any given moment!) of Bergenia and while the leaves are not the big elephant ears of some, they are nicely shaped and have some of the best winter color developing rich purple color.  Pink flowers.

Henckelia urticifolia YuGu 315 Henckelia urticifolia YuGu 315

Initially, we placed this in the genus Loxostigma but upon flowering, the arrangement and shape didn't quite fit. Fortunately, FRBC taxonomist Cody Hinchliff keyed it out. This is from the Vietnam -Yunnan border region which is a hot spot of Gesneriaceae. Large pink flowers on a vigorous plant.  Protect from freezing.

We are smitten with Veratrum and this is an exciting addition to the mix.   This one has pale petals and darker eye pattern to the center, and narrow pleated leaves in an open and airy arrangement on the 3' flowering stem.  A rich moist soil in part shade will be just the ticket.  Our thanks to Aaron Floden for sharing this plant with us.

From the Yunnan-Vietnam borderlands, this small-leafed evergreen dogwood makes an attractive tree.  Flowers not seen but if anything like the red fruit when ripe, then boom-shaka-laka!  Even if the flowers are not as hoped, what a gift to focus on its many attributes and the modern plague of unrealistic expectation.
