Gillenia (syn. Porteranthus) trifoliata 'Pink Profusion' Gillenia (syn. Porteranthus) trifoliata 'Pink Profusion'

Did we mean to infer that this is a PINK Gillenia????  Why yes, we did.  And it is.  Pink, definitely pink.  An exciting offering of a dandy variant on a choice eastern native.  Pink Bowman's Root will get 24"-30" tall with multiple stems sporting an airy array of pink flowers.  Great fall color as well.

Uvularia perfoliata - Hamblen Co. TN Uvularia perfoliata - Hamblen Co. TN

Perfoliate Bellwort.  So named for the perfoliate leaves in which the stem seems to pierce the leaf and bellwort for the pendant pale yellow (in this form) to greenish flowers.  This is a collection from Hamblen County Tennessee shared with us by botanist Aaron Floden.  A delight in the shade garden contrasting well with dark Podophyllums and ferns.

Actaea pachypoda Actaea pachypoda

Doll's Eyes Baneberry.  Striking woodland plant in fruit - the white puffs of flowers in late spring are ok but the fruit is serious business.  An elongated fruiting spike holds with red stems, round white berries each with a small black pupil.  The common name is immediately obvious and is either clever or creepy depending on how many "Chucky" movies you have watched.  We think it is clever.  All parts poisonous which means deer proof.

Gillenia stipulata  syn. Porteranthus stipulatus Gillenia stipulata syn. Porteranthus stipulatus

American Ipecac. Back in the good old days, this had usage as both an emetic and laxative.  Tempting as this might be, we have other options now and can simply enjoy this hardy perennial for its excellent ornamental qualities.  This rivals Bowman's Root, Gillenia trifolia, but is improved by its more finely cut leaves with persistent, small bract-like stipules creating a very fine texture with white flowers. Thanks to Mark Oppenheimer for sharing.

Blue Cohosh.  Quiet woodlander from east of the Rockies who plays supporting cast to the stars in the shade garden but its absence would cause these same stars to seem to not shine so brightly.  Herbaceous Barberry family member, glaucous leaves in spring with meh flowers but lovely, blue fruit in fall just when you need them.  Thanks to Charles Kelley for the seed.

Liatris ligulistylis Liatris ligulistylis

Meadow Blazing Star.  One of the many garden stars at Denver Botanic Garden's Chatfield gardens, this is especially favored by Monarch butterflies.  Fluffy rose-purple flowers to an an inch or more wide appear on the vertical 12"-36" stems midsummer to September.  Native from Alberta to New Mexico, this likes sandy or rocky soils on the dry side.  Rich loamy easy-livin' soils pushes too much growth leading to the dreaded flop.

Good plant for the woodland garden where it plays well with the early Trilliums, Cardamines and various early spring ephemera.

A Bee Balm native to the Ocoee River in Tennessee and formally described as a new species in 2015 thanks to the work being done by botanist Aaron Floden.

Partridge Berry.  An introduction from Piping Tree Gardens Nursery in Virginia who made numerous selections from the rich local woodland flora.  We can't attest to comparative sizes - too much like junior high locker rooms - but can say that this small-scale evergreen groundcover with small white fragrant flowers does have lovely red fruit.

Trillium pusillum 'Early Alabama Spring' Trillium pusillum 'Early Alabama Spring'

A selection by Piping Tree Gardens Nursery of this dwarf species from Alabama where spring starts early and so does this phenotype of the species.

Ultra-cute rhizomatous clumping species to just a few inches high with irrepressible perky upward-facing scented white flowers.

Trillium vaseyi Trillium vaseyi

Sweet Wakerobin. One of the best Trilliums you can grow, this has some of the largest flowers in the genus and the news just gets better because these flowers are not only big but deep red. Stunning, hanging ornaments.  We seldom offer these which we have grown from seed but every so often we have to let a few go as proof of progress for our therapist that we are managing our plant hoarding dysfunction.

Saxifraga paniculata - Kolenatiana form Saxifraga paniculata - Kolenatiana form

Anemonella thalictroides 'Tairin' Anemonella thalictroides 'Tairin'

A Japanese selection of our Eastern US wildflower with larger than normal pink flowers of good color.  This is surprisingly tough given its small size and a lightly shaded spot or morning sun will suit this to a 'T'-airin.  Good drainage is important so if your soil is heavy, add some gravel chips and lift it up a bit.  This is one of those spring delights that seems so critical.

Pachysandra procumbens 'Little's Pixie Forest' Pachysandra procumbens 'Little's Pixie Forest'

This is a good species of Pachysandra that is well-mannered and earns a place in collector's shade gardens. We have a number of clones from Piping Tree Gardens and Nursery on the east coast who collected and named a few forms which show some subtle variations with this being one.

Galax urceolata - Watnong form Galax urceolata - 'Watnong Form'

A southeastern native in one of our favorite families, the Diapensiaceae, this has unapologetic beautiful evergreen foliage and wands of white flowers which evoke our native Vanilla Leaf, Achlys triphylla. This form, we assume from Watnong Nursery in Morris Plains, NJ, is notable for very good vigor and garden adaptability. Spreads not fast enough by runners and appreciates looser forest-type soil.

Trillium rugelii 'Little's Snowy Giant' Trillium rugelii 'Little's Snowy Giant'

A vigorous selection from Piping Tree Gardens Nursery some years back.  We have not offered this before and finally a few divisions deemed expendable thanks to the Covid-19 loss of retail, lectures, tours and offsite plant sales.  There is a silver, or rather, a snowy lining to this pandemic.  Sizable, white pendulous flowers nod beneath the leaves and this will increase nicely in a few years.
