Anemone apennina 'Albiflora' Anemone apennina 'Albiflora'

A necessary part of the woodland garden are the small European Anemones and this is one of the good ones.  Fine foliage and nice white flowers in spring on a slowly spreading rhizomatous little bulbous plant.  As you may have surmised, this is at home in the Apennines in Italy and into Croatia.

Anemone nemorosa 'Atley' Anemone nemorosa 'Atley'

A lovely form we brought home from Scotland a few years back.  This varies from the norm of mid-blue flowers by embracing the blending nature.of Impressionist pastels with its goes-with-anything non-confrontational light lavender-blue flowers in April and May.  Not surprisingly, this form is a Libra.

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.

Anemone nemorosa 'Bracteata' Anemone nemorosa 'Bracteata'

Wood Anemone.  This selection has funny heads of flowers where the petals have become dense clusters dissected white leafy bracts or did the bracts become dense bunches of filigreed snowflake petals?  Either way, quite a piece of floral artwork that garners ample attention.  Great for shade.

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.

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 'Leed's Variety' Anemone nemorosa 'Leed's Variety'

This is regarded as the largest of the Anemone nemorosa cultivars and is a star in our shade garden. It is the perfect underplanting to many other plants as the Anemone is but 10" high or less and creeps on twiggy rhizomes to make a fine, dense patch.

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 '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 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 'Tilo' Anemone nemorosa 'Tilo'

A nice small flowered light pink form of this necessary Anemone species which followed us home from the UK a few years back.  What is a necessary Anemone, you ask?  One which is indispensable in your shade or woodland garden and whose absence would not only be noted but commented upon and repeated, a gardening gaffe going viral.

Anemone nemorosa 'Vestal' Anemone nemorosa 'Vestal'

This little European Woods Anemone is aptly named as an established patch of this in full flower is indeed purity and chastity personified.  Clean white flowers with a central button of doubleness makes this selection the most oft requested nemorosa in our shade garden.

Anemone nemorosa 'Virescens' Anemone nemorosa 'Virescens'

An intriguing curiosity that combines beauty with novelty.  In this selection, the flower petals have become lacy green petaloid structures that are perfectly arranged to create amusing and intricate green flowers.  A fun addition to the shade garden.

Anemone nemorosa 'Wilks' White' Anemone nemorosa 'Wilks' White'

One of the larger flowered varieties of Wood Anemone, this has excellent white flowers which are more than enough to stand alone or perfect in a supporting understory role to larger shrubs and perennials.

Anemone nemorosa ("Original Blue") Anemone nemorosa ("Original Blue")

We don't have a real name for this one but continue the informal designation given to it by friend and mentor Steve Doonan.  Original Blue just means that it was the first blue one in his collection.  Smaller a bit than 'Robinsiana' but pretty close with dusky blue flowers.  This adds much to the shade garden.

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

Anemone ranunculoides - double yellow Anemone ranunculoides 'Pleniflora'

A tough little creeper with twiggy rhizomes and habit like Anemone nemorosa, this sets itself apart from that clan with double yellow flowers which lights the spring shade garden with a spill of sunshine.  This has fresh green ferny leaves on 3"-6" stems which makes a small carpet increasing over time and can make a fine underplanting for larger ferns,Hostas, Polygonatum or woody plants.

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.

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.

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.

Aquilegia "Gold Leaf" Aquilegia "Gold Leaf"

This is a columbine that simply appeared in the garden as such is wont to do. The new foliage is a bright golden yellow in sun and a vivid chartreuse in shade.  The raspberry colored flowers are better than we had hoped and is likely an iteration of 'Woodside Gold' although how it came to be here is a mystery.

Aristolochia baetica Aristolochia baetica

Andalusian Dutchman's Pipe.  Native to Portugal, Spain and hopping across Gibraltar to North Africa, this curious vine with its heart-shaped leaves always gives pause with its small mahogany-purple flowers shaped like trippy little saxophones.  We find it nigh unto impossible to walk by without stopping to admire the pixie quirkiness.  Comparatively large seed pods follow the flowers.

Arum 'Chameleon' Arum 'Chameleon'

We have Ellen Hornig of Seneca Hills Nursery to thank for sharing this with us.  Likely of hybrid origin, this has large leaves wonderfully patterned, which are up and glorious all winter and spring before withering away for the summer.  The pale sail-like flower spathes turn a brilliant orange in late summer and fall.  This is a very easy bulb which does well in the shade or woodland garden.

Asarum europeum Asarum europeum

This is the evergreen European Wild Ginger which is such a performer in the shade garden.  I recall a particularly memorable patch at the Chase Estate outside of Boston many years ago which fueled my desire to grow this.  Really easy and hardy and not as high on the slug gnosh list as the Asian species.  Check it out in our younger shade garden.

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.

Astrantia 'Star of Fire' Astrantia 'Star of Fire'

Prominent dark starry bracts back the dark red pincushion flowers which are held on equally dark red-purple stems.  Not a bad name for this quite good form of Masterwort.  It's no Apprenticewort, that is for sure.  A classic plant for the partially shaded cottage garden, this will rock the sunny spot given rich moist soil.

Bupleurum angulosum J+JA245.001 Bupleurum angulosum J&JA245.001

A quietly fun perennial that should be on every green flower afficionado's hit list.  Lance-shaped leaves and branched stems bearing dull yellow tiny button flowers arising from green buds and all surrounded by a prominent green collar.  Lovely green effect with plenty of structural detail.  Archibal collection from the Pyrenees/Cantabrian Mts.

Campanula 'Summer Pearl' Campanula 'Summer Pearl'

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.
