Heloniopsis acutifolia BSWJ 6817
A rare offering of a rare species of this choice little bit of botanical collectable necessity. Evergreen rosettes and slowly forming companion rosettes, this has enchanting white flowers on 4"-7" stems. Moist and shade.
Interesting and showy Japanese species that makes tidy little evergreen clumps. Our original plant came from the Portland iconic Bovees Nursery. Unusual lavender-pink flowers held well above the foliage. Makes nice patches by rooting at leaf tips. Good moist soil.
Heloniopsis orientalis - Zale collection
A robust form of the species collected by Dr. Peter Zale. We have long been enamored by this genus and this fine form simply fans the flames of our ardor. Here in March, the exotic pink flowers stand proud over the evergreen rosettes of leaves. We view the recent merging into Helonias with skepticism.

Heloniopsis orientalis - Dark Double
Easy there, steady yourself - remember to breathe……..you are reading this right - this is a double flowered Heloniopsis of the dark flowered persuasion. Dense heads of tightly packed double flowers of dark pink-lavender makes this very collectible for those who love rare aberrations and isn't that true of most of us?

Heloniopsis orientalis - Select
This is easily the best disappointing plant we have. This is one we imported from Japan - at some significant coast - as a Gold Leaf cultivar. The first year was magic with leaves like pure sunlight but never again. The best part is that it is an exceptionally good, vigorous clone with big flower heads and superb foliage.
Heloniopsis orientalis var. breviscapa A-So BSWJ 5850
Collected by the Wynn-Jones of Crug Farm from, as they describe it, "the moist well-drained forests on the steep sides of the Aso Crater on Kyushu, Japan." The tip of the flowering stem or scape is dark purple which then holds lavender-pink flowers with dark ovaries. For moist soil in light shade to part shade.
Heloniopsis orientalis var. breviscapa BSWJ 5873
We are wild about this genus and it combines beauty, rarity and growability in its appeal. Evergreen rosettes of flattened broadly lance-shaped leaves with spring whitish flowers accented by purple stamens. Zone 6.

Heloniopsis orientalis var. flavida 'Snow White'
A very robust selection in one of our favorite genera, this is one we brought in from Japan some while back and at last have some to offer. Wider and longer leaves than other Heloniopsis, making larger evergreen rosettes. Early spring sees the elongation of the flowering stem to 10" and a full head of creamy flowers aging to a clear white.
Heloniopsis tubiflora 'Temple Blue' BSWJ956
Fantastic collection by arguably the preeminent plant hunter of our times, Bleddyn Wynn-Jones of Crug Farm in Wales. This is from the Odaesan Mts in cold NE Korea and departs from the norm of this little known genus by having blue flowers. We nearly wept when it flowered. Moist and shade.
