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.

Saxifraga cochlearis 'Major' Saxifraga cochlearis 'Major'

Saxifraga cochlearis is native to the southeastern Alps and this form 'Major' is speculated to be a hybrid with S. callosa which would account for its extra vigor.  Not a bad thing at all!  This makes clustered rosettes of foliage encrusted in silvery deposits and has white flowers in spring.  Good in a trough or rock garden.

Campanula latiloba 'Alba' Campanula latiloba 'Alba'

From Wendy Perry of Bosvigo Plants in S. England comes this unfortunately scarce and choice Campanula.  Gently and very controllably spreading to make an impressive clump with spires of pure white flowers.  Pairs impeccably with Hosta 'Patriot'.

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.

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

Pulsatilla vulgaris var. rubra Pulsatilla vulgaris var. rubra

Nice rich red form of the Pasque Flower.  This makes over time a full mound of finely dissected foliage with a bunch of flower stems bearing the large cheery red flowers.  Sun and some decent drainage and you're good to go.

Gentiana angustifolia Gentiana angustifolia - Nursery Origin

This Gentiana acaulis very close relative and indeed is regarded as being in the acaulis group, is one of the forms found in the nursery trade here in the PNW which is why refer to it as Nursery Origin.  Unless it is from a known wild population, chances are good there is G. acaulis in its bloodlines.  Not a bad thing to have a little mongrel vigor to push those big blue trumpet flowers above an evergreen spreading mat.

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!

Scopolia carniolica Scopolia carniolica

In the Solanaceae Family, this deciduous perennial gets many stems that start blooming almost upon emergence in early spring with thimble-shaped chocolate flowers that are yellowish on the inside.  Very cool.  This likes part sun and is broader than tall at 2' x 3'.

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.

Gentiana dinarica 'Montenegro' Gentiana dinarica 'Montenegro'

Excellent selection of this species in the acaulis group which has large flowers of a particularly good dark blue on long stems well, long for this species anyway.  Evergreen mats in rich moist soil in full sun with main bloom in spring and some rebloom in late summer.  Endangered species in its native Balkan Dinaric Alps.

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.

Bistorta amplexicaulis 'Rosea' (syn. Persicaria) Bistorta amplexicaulis 'Rosea' (syn. Persicaria)

A Great Plant Pick, and rightly so because this performs in the garden.  Thin spikes of soft pink flowers are held nicely upright, more so than many other cultivars and pair wonderfully with the bold green foliage to create a ethereal pinkish floral haze above the bulwark of green.  Not weedy or aggressive, this is good.

Crambe maritima Crambe maritima

Sea Kale.  A prized vegetable of olden times, this still would be widely eaten if the leaves didn't bruise easily in transport.  However, that is just a gastronomic aside because the ornamental qualities outweigh its tastiness.  A seashore plant of Europe, this has ruffled blue-green leaves and white flowers.

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.

Gentiana acaulis 'Sternschnuppe' Gentiana acaulis 'Sternschnuppe'

A fine selection with seasonally variable light blue trumpet flowers which we received from our friend Urs Baltensperger.  Most folks instantly gravitate towards the impossibly dark blue selections and while these are critical to have, consider how much darker they will look with this growing alongside.  Just sayin'.  Evergreen mats in rich soil.

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.

Gentiana acaulis Hybrid 'Maxima' Gentiana acaulis 'Maxima'

One of the largest flowered selections of Gentiana acaulis, this is truly a showstopper with its big, deep blue trumpets in spring and lighter reblooms after.  It may owe its vigor to hybridity but whatever the reason, we are down with it!  Moist, rich soil in sun and stand back and enjoy. Gentiana acaulis 'Maxima Enzian' is likely the same as Enzian is German for Gentian.

Gentiana acaulis 'Holzmannii' Gentiana acaulis 'Holzmannii'

Evergreen mat-former with very large cobalt blue trumpets spring to early summer.  This might ruin your other blue flowers for you as they will look embarassingly insipid in comparison.   A rich moist soil in full to mostly sun is best.  Despite popular opinion, these are pigs and thrive on a good manure mulch!

Soldanella cyanaster Soldanella cyanaster

A less commonly encountered species which calls the Rhodopi and Pirin Mts of Bulgaria home.  This lavender-blue flowers finely fringed in very narrow petals on a flower that is more widely open than related species.  Small rounded evergreen leaves are a pleasure all year but it’s the flowers that makes your toes tingle in spring.

Stachys officinalis 'Dwarf White' Stachys officinalis 'Dwarf White'

Little gem of a Stachys we brought back from Scotland in 2013 although we hate parting with any, to be honest.  Super compact with tight rich green rugose leaves and short spikes of snow white flowers of a purity and innocence so unsullied that felt compelled to ask permission prior to dividing.  Perfect rock garden plant.

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.

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.

Gentiana acaulis 'Krebs' Gentiana acaulis 'Krebs'

A selection of this outstanding European alpine species notable for having large flowers and being quite a good bloomer. Not all acaulis flower freely but 'Krebs' brings it with large upward-facing trumpets of impossible blue in mid spring.  Now you don't have to be embarrased you have Krebs.  Rich moist soil in sun.  Hardy to zone 5.

Hepatica nobilis ex 'Papillion' Hepatica nobilis ex. 'Papillion'

'Papillion' possesses excellent foliage looking very clover-like with flattened tri-lobed leaflets in triplicate and is no great leap to imagine butterflies.  These seedlings from the Ashwood nursery breeding program, have the characteristics of the parent and the flower color can be either white, pink or blue.

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.

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.

A little gem this one is. Fully double white flowers like elfin roses held on short stems in spring and early summer on this little creeper. Perfectly suited to the rockery, rock garden or special spot, this will charm even the most cynical and caustic of gardeners except those who hate double flowers but even they awake smiling on occasion in the middle of the night after dreaming of this blooming in their garden.
