Aconitum anthora Aconitum anthora

Yellow Monkshood  An interesting species fromEurope with generally yellow flowers although sometimes lavender purple variants can be found.  This has narrower flowers than typical for the more familiar Monkshoods and we find them quite appealing.  This is good for mid to late summer bloom and is blessedly deer proof.  Zone 3.

Silver Broom.  Uncommon xeric shrub endemic to the Sierra Nevada Mts of Spain.  This member of the Fabaceae family is fab indeed with pale flaking bark, silver-green needle-like leaves and sprays of soft yellow flowers.  Pretty awesome and locally grown to perfection at the Heg and Barca gardens on Whidbey Island.

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 '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 '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

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.

Arisarum proboscideum Arisarum proboscideum

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.

Cardamine glanduligera Cardamine glanduligera

Lovely species in the group formerly placed in the genus Dentaria referring to their crinkled molar-like rhizomes.  We do enjoy the the color of the purple-pink flowers in early spring but there is a quality of texture and sheen to the leaves that makes us consistently murmur  'I like that plant" whenever we pass by it.

Cardamine pentaphylla Cardamine pentaphyllos

This will slowly make a very rewarding clump in the shade garden with 5-fingered leaves which spawned the species name of pentaphyllos. Good display of dark pink flowers in spring that blends well with many of the Anemone nemorosa varieties and frankly just about everything else in the shade garden. Native to Europe. Quite hardy.

Cardamine pratensis 'Salzach' Cardamine pratensis 'Salzach'

Try to get past the uncanny steroidal resemblance to the cursed shotweed which infests every bit of cultivated soil in the temperate zones - same genus but much better manners!  Double white flowers like tiny roses from soft pinkish buds.  This sets no seed but roots at the leaf tips.

This is a delight in the spring with it's short stems of 8-12 pinkish-lilac flowers in March.  This will make a spreading groundcover but dies back quickly after flowering so is not a problem and is perfect for planting around Hostas and other later arrivals.  Very hardy and a classic spring ephemeral.

Cardamine waldsteinii Cardamine waldsteinii

One of those spring ephemerals we totally groove on.  This tuberous Toothwort is native to the woodlands of the former Yugoslavia so current geography is from Bosnia through Croatia and into stable Austria.  This will form a little colony but is not annoying in the least and is so delightful with its sizable white flowers in March.
