Veratrum viride Veratrum viride

We love seeing this False Hellebore when we are hiking up to Marmot Pass or Mt Townsend in the Olympics.  Always growing in dappled light or partly sunny spts where there is ample moisture, the big wide pleated leaves are perfect with the drooping plume-like green flowers.  Deer proof.

Saxifraga mertensiana Saxifraga mertensiana

Mertens' Saxifrage.  From California up to Alaska, this little Western native favors moist areas in the subalpine and alpine areas. Rounded and toothed leaves with flower stems from 6"-15" that have short branches bearing small starry white flowers.  Sometimes these flowers can be replaced by aerial stem bulbils which makes propagating a snap as witnessed by these from botanist Alex Wright's collection.

Anemone drummondii var. lithophila Anemone drummondii var. lithophila

Nice little Anemone for the rock garden with white flowers on 4"-10" stems. This grows in the Rockies from Idaho, Montana and Wyoming up though Canada into Alaska where it favors open rocky ridges from 6500' to 10,000' so hardiness is not in question. We grew these from seed given us as var. lithophila, we suspected var. drummondii, but it keys to var. lithophila.

Sambucus racemosa var. melanocarpa Sambucus racemosa var. melanocarpa

Rocky Mountain Elderberry. A black-fruited variant of our native red-fruited Elderberry. This is found in Canada down to Utah and this collection is from seed collected by botanist Alex Wright in Idaho.  We find that variants, deviants, the odd miscreant adds considerable not only but the garden as well and this does just that.  A necessary addition to your native plant palette.

Primula (Dodecatheon) jeffreyi  NNS collection Primula (Dodecatheon) jeffreyi NNS collection

Western Shooting Star. A pleasing western wildflower California to Alaska that one can't help but enjoy with its showy pinkish flowers with its strongly backswept petals. Likes it moist in spring and goes summer dormant when it gets drier.  The taxonomic move of Dodecatheon to Primula nearly made us give up on plants and take up studying something stable and predictable like Constitutional checks and balances.

Let's talk drought tolerance. This is one step up from cactus. We always marvel at this growing out of cracks in sheer basalt cliffs on the dry Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge and looking oh so good despite the most rigorous of conditions. Great for the rock garden. Good drainage.  Purple-pink flowers on this evergreen subshrub.

Arenaria sp. ex. Wallowa Mts Arenaria sp. ex. Wallowa Mts

A fine little tight mat-forming alpine from the Wallowas in Oregon that appeals only to the most nerdacious of plant nerds in the elevated stratosphere of alpine plant and rock garden geekdom because this is essentially a small swatch of closely clipped putting green astroturf.  It flowers but you will likely miss it.

A very dwarf selection of our native red huckleberry found in the garden at St. Andrews in Scotland.  This is extremely dwarf to just a few inches high but spreading to 3' across in time.  That would be a long time.  Brilliant red and orange new growth.  Perfect little rock garden shrub.

Our selection from near the extirpated location of a dwarf population above Carbonado relayed to us by NW plant legend Edith Dusek.  This has proved to be very atypical in that it produces a zillion crowns in a single plant,  A one gallon pot plant had 50 divisions, a large garden clump over a thousand.  Smaller than lowland clones.

Erythronium revolutum Erythronium revolutum

Our native Fawnlily which grows from California up to BC.  It is difficult to imagine having too many of these but judging from the copious self-sown seedlings in our shade garden, we'll soon see.  Dormant in early summer so they aren't in the way.  Pink flowers, leaves mottled when young.

Pseudotrillium rivale syn. Trillium rivale Pseudotrillium rivale syn. Trillium rivale

This sweet little Trillium from the Siskiyou Mountains has been moved into its own genus of which it is the sole representative.  This is known as a monotypic genus and we are drawn to such isolated species.  This is quite diminutive but is very beautiful with usually white flowers but can be pink or have varying degrees of dark pink spotting.  It increases well by division - these are nice freshly divided plants.
