This is a cutey that is found in our state as well as around the globe in northern latitudes and the higher reaches. As charming as it is, one wonders why it is not more widely grown. Easy to please in a moist site and makes a deliciously cheery patch of fresh yellow flowers in spring. The flowers, although small, are many and play counterpoint to larger flowers.
Cute little evergreen small-scale groundcover from moist shaded habitats in China. We saw this growing in very moist shade in deep moss over rocks which carried seepage from the summit of Wumeng Shan. Interesting clusters of yellow flowers and has proven perfectly hardy for us.
Our introduction from 2012 of this new to cultivation species. This was found on a scramble up a shaded and damp ravine which would have a small stream during rainstorms. Fortunately it was sunny. A tight groundcover with normally green leaves but this sport has frosty flecks in the leaves. Green flowers.
This robust Chinese groundcover was shared with us by one of the great unsung planthunters of our era, Steve Hootman. We've seen other species of this genus in Sichuan and have always been ensnared by its curious flowers. Saxifrage family, this is strongly stoloniferous in moist shade.
Our collection from a plant with particularly good red-purple new growth where it was growing in rich soil moist soil in open woodland with a few plants of the rare Primula ovalifolia as neighbors. This is groundcover with strawberry-like stolons terminating in a plantlet which will root where it touches. Lovely thing with pale flowers above the bold foliage in early spring. The species handles the east coast as well growing in the Dronenburg-Weil garden in Maryland.
New offering from us of this underappreciated genus. We grow 7 taxa which must be some sort of record even for a nursery specializing in the obscure and unprofitable. This cool little groundcover is from Kyushu in Japan where it grows in shaded moist places. The yellow/green flowers have an ineffable je ne sais quoi we quite enjoy. Have not trialed for hardiness but the Ontario Rock Garden Society has tips for seed germination.
