Cardiocrinum cordatum - red form Cardiocrinum cordatum - red form

Three-year old bulbs of this exquisitely choice red-flowered variant of this shorter species.  Saturated red interior with a white and red exterior - dang! This normally flowers 5-6 years from seed and these are a good age to get established for maximum oomph when flowering.  You will be forgiven for any horticultural braggadocio!

Veratrum maackii var. parviflorum Veratrum maackii var. parviflorum

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.

Saxifraga nipponica 'Pink Pagoda' Saxifraga nipponica 'Pink Pagoda'

A small cloud of pink flowers on this otherwise white flowered species. One of the easiest species in the section Irregulares to which the more familiar Saxifraga fortunei belongs.  This has the redeeming quality of being able to handle a bit more dry and sun than some of the others but why make it work if you don’t have to?

Leucosceptrum stellipilum Leucosceptrum stellipilum

Leucosceptrum japonicum 'Golden Angel' Leucosceptrum japonicum 'Golden Angel'

Neat selection from Japan of this fall-blooming woodlander.  Golden yellow are its hallmark in spring to mid summer after which they become a light yellow-green but still an element of light brightness in the shade.  Late in Oct/Nov, this defies conventional wisdom by producing  yellow bottlebrush flowers.  Hardy to zone 4.
