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!

Excellent little Asian Allium that is very nice with small heads of white flowers. Perfect for the rock garden or does great in regular garden beds as it does appreciate some moisture during the summer. Sun and decent drainage and thrives in one customers garden in Michigan. Tidy and of good disposition and certainly not a garden thug.

The luscious double flowered form of this aristocratic woodlander from Japan.  Extra petals on the lightly blue-pink tinged white flowers takes this to the next level.  This is certainly one of the 3000-4000 plants that we would grab first if the greenhouses were ablaze.  Our own plants from our divisions - not imported.

Asarum nipponicum Asarum nipponicum

A smaller Japanese Wild Ginger that eventually clumps quite densely.  It looked good in our garden for many years but we dug it and potted it so we could share these and must plant some back.  Small heart-shaped leaves with an irregular central green isthmus flanked on either side by a froth of silver.  Small purple-brown flowers are not missed hiding under the fine leaves.

Aucuba japonica 'Katsunuma Nishiki' Aucuba japonica 'Katsunuma Nishiki'

One of the better selections of Aucuba and very rare in the nursery trade (actually can't find anyone offering this via Google). This was brought to the US by the now defunct Asiatica Nursery and shared with us by Lance Reiners. Narrow leaves consistently freckled in gold presents as major pizzazz with unmistakable elegance.  A tough evergreen tolerant of dry shade once established.  Zones 7-9.

Cardiocrinum cordatum Cardiocrinum cordatum

Grown from seed collected in the Yoro Mts in Japan, this compensates for being shorter than its cousins by being hardier to Zone 6.  Personally, I subscribe to the fishing theory that it is not the size of the worm you use but how you wiggle it.  Rich moist soil and creamy trumpets in 2-3 years.

Chelonopsis moschata Chelonopsis moschata

Japanese Turtlehead.  This light shade loving perennial has late season pink flowers shaped like a foxglove but for us, it is most evocative of an erect Nothochelone nemerosa which is a familiar native wildflower if you are a hiker in the Olympic or Cascade Mts.  This makes a nice clump giving a valuable late show.

Nipponanthemum nipponicum Chrysanthemum yezoense

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. Talk about contrast with so many of the hot colors of Autumn!  In taxonomic flux, we previously offered this as Nipponanthemum nipponicum.

A very good and stable selection from Japan of this little woodland creeper.  Dark green leaves are well-marked with feathered yellow tips and in spring this has pendant white starry flowers.  This will increase to create a definite bit of visual velcro in the garden because as your eye roams the plants, it will stop abruptly on this one.

Gorgeous little gem out of Japan with a rich yellow center to the leaf  surrounded by green with some nice feathering details.  This will increase quickly but not aggressively and adds a nice splash of color in the shade garden.  The white flowers go well with the whole package.

Dryopteris cycadina Dryopteris cycadina

Shaggy Shield Fern.  This evergreen to semi-evergreen fern has a stellar vase-shaped habit with good dark green leaflets which contrast with the black scales on the stipe and rachis which is just  Pterid-talk for stem below the leaves and stem with the leaves.  Coldest part of its zonal range might precipitate a loss of fronds but it will be fine.  A bold and classic appearance for containers or the shaded garden where it is going to do best in moist to moderately moist soil.

Dryopteris tokyoensis Dryopteris tokyoensis

Tokyo Wood Fern.  Classy deciduous species from Japan and Korea with good garden manners.  A necessary fern if you are a ferner and we are so we had to have it - more than one truth be told.  Deer and rabbit resistant which is critical in our garden.  We need to move the couch from the living room out to the garden at night so the dogs can send the vermin herbivores packing.

Epimedium grandiflorum 'Orion' Epimedium grandiflorum 'Orion'

A fine selection of this deciduous Japanese species which was introduced by We-Du Nursery. Sizable flowers of rich purple are the hallmark of this plant and it more than holds it own against more recent hybrids. All Epimediums can't be painted with the same drought tolerant brush and this one appreciates more water than the real drought tolerant species.

Epimedium sempervirens 'Mars' Epimedium sempervirens 'Mars'

A lucky chance seedling in the late Harold Epstein's garden which distinguishes itself by sporting new growth of deep chocolate purple. This color seems further intensified by the contrast of the large pink-cupped flowers with flaring spurs of pale pink to white. Deciduous species from Japan.

Eupatorium fortunei 'Pink Frost' Eupatorium fortunei 'Pink Frost'

One of the few Eupatorium or Joe Pye Weed species that has not been put
into a new genus, this has narrow toothed leaves edged in cream and
white.  The three foot stems are topped by pollinator-friendly pink
flowers in September. Best in a moist situation.  This species is used
in China to make fragrant oils as the whole plant is fragrant when
crushed much like Lavandula.angustifolia.

Filipendula yezoensis BSWJ 10828 Filipendula yezoensis BSWJ 10828

Nice rarity from a collection by the Wynn-Jones of Crug Farm in Wales who found this in northern Honshu in Japan.  Broad maple-like leaves on the basal stems are a bold contrast to the airy sprays of very pale pink flowers on stems to 30 inches.  The flowers provide interest over a good part of the summer.  Collectible - scarcer than hen's teeth.
