Crimson Fans. An amazing clone of a hardy Korean species in the Saxifragaceae. The early spring flowers are little pale things which are les amuse-geules for the foliar main course. In sun, the leaves turn a screaming crimson as summer ages especially if briefly and carefully water stressed. Moist.
A hardy and excellent selection from Japan with deeply divided and ruffled leaves, providing a unique texture for the shade to cool sun garden. Fall color is often a rich burgundy red. Best coloration in light shade during hottest part of the day. Panicles of pure white flowers with red-pink centers appear in early to mid-spring.
A very uncommon plant in North America - we have not seen it listed elsewhere - and one we brought across the pond from the lamentably late Michael Wickenden of Cally Gardens in Scotland. This is a much smaller version of this cold hardy species with dense low foliage of nicely deeply lobed leaves. The leaves take on fall color before dormancy and the early spring white flowers are welcome indeed if they escape being frosted.
A very vigorous form from a Quarryhill collection that is much taller and has larger green leaves than any of the others we grow. The usual early spring white flowers in March and April here. We have a just a few of these from division here in late winter and these may not be fully rooted out on early orders.
