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 - 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.

Disporum smilacinum 'Moonshine' Disporum smilacinum 'Moonshine'

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.

Disporum smilacinum 'Ki-no-tsukasa' Disporum smilacinum 'Ki-no-tsukasa'

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.

Spiraea japonica 'Bullata' Spiraea japonica 'Bullata'

This is one of our favorite little dwarf shrubs that totally rocks the rock garden.  Slow, slow growth, densely twiggy, small heavily textured leaves and small clusters of deep pink flowers in mid summer makes this a great choice for containers or that small special place.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

A fine little dwarf Astilbe native to Japan and one that has proved to be very enduring as well as endearing. This is one Sue used to grow at her old place in northern Vermont. Low mounds of dense and finely cut foliage with short spikes of soft pink fluff in early summer. We grow this out in the full sun with ample water.

A collection from Japan by the Wynn-Jones from the higher elevations in the mountains of the Kinki Peninsula in central Honshu.  This is very similar to the clone 'Maroon Beauty' which is no diminishment.  Good purplish leaves with paler highlights and impressive flowers for a Sax with tall stems bearing flocks of white blooms.  Moist and shade.

Light pink starry flowers grace this covetous form of this wee Japanese species.  A gentle peregrinator spreading by short stolons and making a fine little clump which manages to evoke a lwarm fuzzy feeling in both the jaded collector as well as your average "dirt" gardener.  We live in both worlds and we like it.  A lot.

Hepatica yamatutai Hepatica yamatutai - Pink Reverse Form

This coveted form has white flowers with a fully visible striking pink reverse to the backs of the petals.

Hepatica nobilis var. japonica - blue / purple shades Hepatica nobilis var. japonica - blue / purple shades

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 is different from pale blue to purple and we get to pick.

Hydrangea serrata 'Kiyosumi' Hydrangea serrata 'Kiyosumi'

An outstanding selection from Mt Kiyosumi in Japan, this is distinguished by russet and burgundy tones to the new foliage and the lacecap flowers are the perfect complement to that foliage with the sterile florets being white in the center of the flower and bushing to a distinct pink rim.

Veratrum maackii var. parviflorum Veratrum maackii var. parviflorum - Blooming Size

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.

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.

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?

Bletilla striata 'Ogon' Bletilla striata 'Ogon'

Very collectible selection of this hardy orchid which boasts - yes, boasts, unique, light chartreuse foliage. This orchid sounds a bit like an NBA player after throwing down a one-handed jam from an alley-oop "Yeah! Lookit me! Me! I'm a badass orchid! You ask yo mama how bad I am!"  Purplish flowers with those leaves - it really is badass.
