Ajuga incisa 'Bikun' Ajuga incisa 'Bikun'

Frosted Jade Ajuga.  Hard to believe that this is an Ajuga but it is true.  This choice selection has fantastic foliage and very good dark cobalt flowers.  Not a spreader - this makes a clump with 16" tall stems.  Challenges all of your comfy notions about Ajuga but in a good way.  Great in our shade garden.

Ajuga incisa 'Blue Enigma' Ajuga incisa 'Blue Enigma'

Rare plant found only in limited areas in central Honshu, Japan where it likes the forest fringes in the subalpine areas and is known as hiiragi-sou or holly tree-leafed weed.  Hiiragi-sou sounds better than the translation.  This selection has dark blue flowers and is a deciduous clumper to 16" tall - very nice!

Heloniopsis orientalis  - Zale collection 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.

Isodon umbrosus Isodon umbrosus

This Lamiaceae species comes from woodlands in Japan such as Fukushima Prefecture.  All summer you get to enjoy the subtly interesting leaf shape and texture, pondering what possessed you to grant this space in your overplanted garden.  Once the riot of summer color is gone, the lavender spikes of this uncommon species brings clarity.

A Dan Hinkley collection from Japan of this fine mid to late summer blooming Allium species. Good richly colored purple flowers are freely produced on this densely clumping little dude.

Veratrum maackii var. japonicum Veratrum maackii var. japonicum

A comparatively graceful species of Veratrum with broadly narrow leaves, if that makes any sense and sadly, it does to us.  The 4'-5' flower stem has numerous lateral branchlets clad in lots of red-maroon flowers. To compare to the better-known V. nigrum, narrower leaves, flower stems much more open with flowers more red than purple-black.  Excellent long-lived plant of outstanding hardiness best suited for the cool to cold zones.  Young plants.

Heloniopsis orientalis - Select 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.

Podophyllum 'Galaxy' Podophyllum 'Galaxy'

This is very close to 'Kaleidoscope' and comes from the same Japanese nursery.  Lightly hairy stems hold the pale green leaves with their radially symmetrical chocolate splotches.  Red flowers held beneath the foliage but who cares, really?  It's all about the leaves.  Moist shade and be prepared to be envied.

Hepatica nobilis var. japonica - Pink Hepatica nobilis var. japonica - Pink

These Japanese versions of the European nobilis are ones we have grown from seed and have been hoarding for a few years but since there is no room left in the Hepatica house, we must send a few of our kids out into the world. Each plant varies a bit but all are good pinks and we get to pick.

This choice evergreen Tongue Fern is notable for the yellowish variegation on its evergreen 12" long leaves and is likely conspecific with the clone sold as 'Variegata',  Pyrrosia are easy but require great drainage and unless you are planting it in a stumpery, rockery or slope, you will need to seriously amend with gravel, bark or assorted detritus of life.

This is a true jewel and one we always look forward to seeing in the fall when the tabletop sized patch of low dense dark green leaves are alight with outrageous large white daisy flowers.

One of the classic broad leaf evergreen small trees, this grows quite slowly and will fill the evergreen shrub niche for many years.  This has small apetalous (that would be no petals so you can guess at the wow factor) chartreuse flowers in spring.  Just a great Asian plant requiring decent moist soil.

Rhododendron stenopetalum 'Linearifolium' Rhododendron stenopetalum 'Linearifolium'

Crazy piece of work but in the best possible way.  This is a sport of this Japanese azalea species which would typically have the usual thumb-shaped leaves and wide flower petals but in this selection, the leaves and pink flower petals have become very long and thin like decorative sushi garnish.  Nothing like it and a universal must-have.
