Saxifraga granulata 'Flore Pleno' Saxifraga granulata 'Flore Pleno'

Awesome little plant with fresh winter foliage which gives way to 8"-12" tall dense stems with an improbable number of pure white double flowers. Goes summer dormant so don't panic although we still do. Cool plant native to the UK and Europe and favoring vernally wet areas.

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.

Dactylorhiza maculata Dactylorhiza maculata

We presume this is simply a good form of Dactylorhiza maculata as the leaves are broader and the purple-pink flowers held in fatter heads than many of the forms we see around.  A good plant and one we have slowly increased by division and now have a scant few to offer.  Leaves are nicely spotted.

Anemone nemorosa 'Hilda' Anemone nemorosa 'Hilda'

A fine little European woodlander which can tolerate some sun as well.  Spreading by twiggy rhizomes, this will make a good patch in time when happy,  The semi-double white flowers adds extra petals to the mix, giving lie to the "less is more" maxim because don't we all know in our publicly inaccessible heart of hearts that "more is more"?  Hilda, you work it, girl!

Anemone nemorosa 'Royal Blue' Anemone nemorosa 'Royal Blue'

Large lavender blue flowers with a darker reverse grants this little slowly creeping Wood Anemone its own small fiefdom in the shade garden while it is in bloom.  Very pretty indeed.  Of course by mid summer the peasants and serfs rise up with scythes and cudgels to reclaim their land but next year the glorious cycle of rule and revolution is repeated.

Anemone ranunculoides ssp. ranunculoides Anemone ranunculoides ssp. ranunculoides

A choice woodland creeper for the shade or partly shaded garden where it behaves like Anemone nemorosa - making a mat of ferny foliage but in this case, it has vibrant yellow flowers.  A patch of this is to be coveted.  Very hardy and goes mid to late summer dormant.

Galanthus elwesii 'Hallelujah' Galanthus 'Hallelujah'

This was a purchase by the Miller Botanic Garden in the late 90's from the RHS store at Wisley and to our knowledge, is not available in this country and very scarce elsewhere.  An early bloomer, in fact, it is flowering now this late December in its pots sitting outside unprotected as we have had a relatively mild winter so far. Huge flowers resembling an elwesii Whittall Group

Anemone nemorosa 'Danica' Anemone nemorosa 'Danica'

This is a large white flowered selection of this little creeping European species.  Ours came from the UK via our friends at the former Hedgerows Nursery whose plant offerings set a very high bar for the rest of us.  This was last listed in the UK in 2008, we believe, and may have been deemed insufficiently distinct from other good white selections to carry its own name.

Saponaria caespitosa Saponaria caespitosa

Rock Soapwort.  This is a lovely and tough rock garden or crevice plant from the Pyrenees where it grows in exposed sheer rock faces.  Dense cushions of close-packed rosettes with narrow short green leaves.  Pink-purple flowers are held on short 2" stems in groups of one to three.  One becomes a group when hanging with the Threes.  Full sun, good drainage, zones 3-8.

Saxifraga x macnabiana Saxifraga x macnabiana

Nice rosettes of white-edged leaves on this slightly lime encrusted Saxifrage.  A hybrid of S. callosa and S. cotyledon. this will have 12" stems of numerous white flowers flecked in teeny red dots.  Full sun in cool sun areas and in hot areas, a little afternoon shade would not go remiss.  This could be as simple as planting on the back side of a rock in the rock garden.

Anemone nemorosa 'Mart's Blue' Anemone nemorosa 'Mart's Blue'

Wood Anemone.  This is a good blue form with flowers darker than many of the blue selections and even though the individual flowers are a little smaller than typical, we don't care as this is such a lovely thing.  Found in the Estonian woodlands by Mart Veerus and introduced we think by Janis Ruksans.

Anemone nemorosa 'Lychette' Anemone nemorosa 'Lychette'

This excellent clone of the Wood Anemone has larger than usual white flowers held nicely above the foliage with better than usual substance and poise.  Hard to describe precisely but like some things that are elusive in definition, you know it when you see it.

Anemone nemorosa 'Blue Beauty' Anemone nemorosa 'Blue Beauty'

Soft pale blue flowers on this clone which we brought in from the UK a few years ago.  This species seems a necessary part of the spring woodland garden and the twiggy rhizomes will in time form a dense floriferous carpet with flowers backed by deeply segmented green leaves.

Anemone x lipsiensis Anemone x lipsiensis

One of the quiet stars of our shade garden is this cross between rich yellow Anemone ranunculoides and white Anemone nemorosa.  The result is a vigorous small scale shade loving groundcover with profuse primrose yellow flowers.  Perfect as a planting under larger plants.  Moist.

Anemone nemorosa - red back to petals Anemone nemorosa - red back to petals

Unnamed or lost name selection of Wood Anemone we received from plantsman non pareil John Flintoff some years back.  This is distinct from others we grow as the white flowers have a reddish pink reverse to the petals which is particularly effective as these nod a bit and you get to enjoy the nice backside.  "Baby got back" - Sir Mix-a-Lot

Chrysosplenium alternifolium Chrysosplenium alternifolium

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.

Angelica 'Ebony' Angelica 'Ebony'

The darkest foliage on any Angelica.  I googled it and got an interesting hit on an escort in London with ebony skin named Angelica.  The plant may actually be darker, costs quite a lot less and I'm sure easier to keep happy.  Biennial so plant the seeds that form after the lovely pink flowers.

Hepatica nobilis 'Cremar' Hepatica nobilis 'Cremar'

Choice selection with ruffled heavily marbled leaves and light pink flowers.  You normally grow Hepatica for the early spring flowers and any foliar enhancement is pure gravy but with Cremar, flowers bow their heads to the majesty of the leaves. Quite a choice plant and does well in light shade with decent drainage.

Anemone nemorosa 'Stars in the Night' Anemone nemorosa 'Stars in the Night'

This is an exquisite little bit of spring pleasure that was introduced by our friend Urs Baltensberger.  Urs found this dark-leafed form growing wild in the forest on Stammerberg in Switzerland and we are all benefiting from his keen eye.  Purplish new growth is perfect backing for the white spring flowers in mid to late spring.  A key smaller element for shade.

Anemone nemorosa 'Blue Eyes' Anemone nemorosa 'Blue Eyes'

Choice selection of the Wood Anemone with flowers densely packed with numerous small white petals which appear all white at first but as the flowers mature or awaken, a central blue eye is revealed which is quite delightful.  I go through a similar slow process every morning and tell myself that it is the same delightful end result.

Salix eleagnos Salix eleagnos var. angustifolia

A graceful Willow from SE France and Italy often referred to as the Rosemary Willow.  The narrow leaves are bright silver white underneath which contrast nicely with the burnished mahogany stems on the new growth,  This can be trained to a small tree or coppiced for a dense bush.

Asplenium trichomanes Asplenium trichomanes

Maidenhair Spleenwort.  I love common names.  I must dig out our 15th century Herbal and read up on how to properly decoct this sweet little fern for afflicting humors of the spleen.  Or I can just grow it in a gritty well-drained shaded rock garden and enjoy its evergreen delicacy.

Leontopodium alpinum - Edelweiss Leontopodium alpinum - Edelweiss

Edelweiss, Edelweiss, every morning you greet me, small and white, clean and bright, you look happy to meet me, blossom of snow may you bloom and grow, bloom and grow forever.  The classic alpine from the Alps.  Sue used to work for the von Trapps and is really tired of this song but still likes the plant.

Fragaria vesca 'Muricata' Fragaria vesca 'Muricata'

This weird variant of the Alpine Strawberry was discovered by John Tradescant in 1627 near  Plymouth in Devon and is often called the Plymouth Strawberry.  The white petals of the normal flower have been replaced by green leafy bracts and the fruit follows suit cloaking itself in spiky green appendages.  Not a treat for the table but a historical and fun treat for the garden.

Hacquetia epipactis Hacquetia epipactis

There ain't nuthin' like this.  Early spring yellow stars followed by leathery lobed green leaves in a dense low mound.  It is the early yellow flowers that steal the show in part because they have so little competition and in part because they are so unique.

Erythronium dens-canis 'Snowflake' Erythronium dens-canis 'Snowflake'

I love white flowers in the shade garden.  The juxtaposition against the dark earth and the interplay and mediation with other colors makes white an excellent choice.  (Don't get me wrong, I'm voting for Obama)  These have pure white flowers with a light chartreuse throat touched faintly in red.

Hepatica transsilvanica 'Elison Spence' Hepatica transsilvanica 'Elison Spence'

These were shared with us by Kelly's mentor and fair to say, hero, Steve Doonan of Grand Ridge Nursery.  A superb selection with petaloid stamens giving this a robust doubled appearance.  Always hard to come by and much sought after, this will in time make a nice carpet of ostentation.
