Acis (Leucojum) autumnale Acis (Leucojum) autumnalis

One of the sweetest little bulbs imaginable!  Summer dormant with dainty white flowers on 6"  stems appearing in Aug into Sept.  This grows in Portugal, Gibralter and Morocco and is just as happy growing with Madrona in the PNW as it is Olives back home.  Grassy foliage up in fall and winter.

Adenocarpus decorticans Adenocarpus decorticans

Silver Broom.  Uncommon xeric shrub endemic to the Sierra Nevada Mts of Spain.  This member of the Fabaceae family is fab indeed with pale flaking bark, silver-green needle-like leaves and sprays of soft yellow flowers.  Pretty awesome and locally grown to perfection at the Heg and Barca gardens on Whidbey Island.

Aethionema oppositifolium (syn. Eunomia) Aethionema oppositifolium (syn. Eunomia)

Choice little alpine from the heights of Syria, Lebanon and Turkey which is remarkably hardy.  Sue brought this out west with her from her garden in northern Vermont in case you think we're making stuff up.  Which we do but we're not this time.  Perfect low mats of small rounded gray leaves and white spring flowers.

Aristolochia sempervirens Aristolochia sempervirens

Quirky little evergreen vine from the Mediterranean that brings delight far out of proportion to the size of its flowers. Small curved pipe-like flowers are a subtle burnished pale flesh on the outside accented by thin reddish lines.  The flared pipe bowl is a perky yellow with faint lines in the back of the throat and a rim of umber, delicately whiskered.

Colchicum corsicum Colchicum corsicum

Safe to say this an uncommon species in the trade.  Our buddy Claire Cockroft gave some some grassy little seedlings some years back and we now have them up to blooming size.  Attaboy's all around!  A demure species with small leaves and small pinkish-lilac flowers in late summer into fall.  A perfect bit of bulbous panache for the rock garden.

Eryngium maritimum Eryngium maritimum

Truly a Sea Holly as this Eryngium is a dune plant throughout a good part of Europe.  Hard to beat texturama for the dry garden, Mediterranean style or really, an ol' garden as long as you aren't too nice to it.  Good drainage in lean soil and you can bask in the splendor of the gray, lightly spiny foliage and the small light purple flower buttons.

Geranium macrorrhizum 'White-Ness' Geranium macrorrhizum 'White-Ness'

A white flowered variant of this familiar Geranium whose flowers are backed by a green calyx rather than pink which adds to its overall indispensable lightness of being. The paler than normal green leaves accentuate this and makes this valuable for brightening a somber corner or tempering hotter colors.  Takes dry shade - very tough.

Globularia trichosantha DHTU0026 Globularia trichosantha DHTU0026

One of the classic alpines for rock gardens and one that should be on the "Easy Alpines for Beginners" list if it isn't already.  Low tight mats of small evergreen leaves topped by fuzzy spherical  violet-blue flowers in early summer, this looks good all the time.  This particular one is from a Hinkley collection in Turkey.

Halimium lasianthum 'Sandling' Halimium lasianthum 'Sandling'

We adore the Halimiums as they have proved to be amply hardy here at Far Reaches, the nearest thing to a Russian Steppe that western Washington offers.  Low growing evergreen shrub clad in grayish foliage and not shy at all yellow flowers with precise carmine pyramids at the base of each petal.  Good drainage.

Iris unguicularis Iris unguicularis

Algerian Iris.  Nothing like this evergreen Mediterranean prize.  This blooms depending on the weather as early as November but generally the main flowering is in February with short-stemmed good-sized light lavender blue flowers.  We cut the leaves back to 6" in Nov to best see the flowers.  Newly potted strong divisions.

Myrtus communis ssp. tarentina Myrtus communis subsp. tarentina

Dwarf form of Sweet Myrtle that should be a great addition to the evergreen shrub palette here in PT. Hardiness is increased with less water in summer and likes a nice sunny spot - we can do this!   Aromatic foliage when crushed with small fragrant white flowers late summer.  This has got to be deer resistant although the cute vermin are cultivating a palette for deer-proof food.

Paeonia corsica syn. mascula ssp. russoi Paeonia corsica (syn. mascula ssp. russoi)

One of the finest of the species Peonies, this Mediterranean goody is among the first to bloom in spring.  Fabulous new growth and very showy single pink flowers.  If you want scent, get a hybrid.  If you want class, here you go.  This is a stunning and very good plant.  Good well drained soil.
