Roscoea 'Family Jewels' hybrids Roscoea 'Family Jewels' hybrids

Vigorous plants with foliage variously shaded in coppery hues and flowers that defy easy description. The flowers in mid to late summer bewitch with prism jewel tones of ruby or amethyst or rarely salmon which shimmer with an entrancing depth of color. This is a seedling group and not clonal so there is some small variation but pretty darned consistent.

Roscoea cautleyoides Roscoea cautleyoides

One of our favorite Roscoeas (we admittedly love the one we are with at the moment when it comes to these) which distinguishes itself by a haughty erectness (only achieved a great cost at expensive finishing schools) in apparent conflict with the "Do Me Now!" exotic yellow flowers.

Roscoea cautleyoides 'Jeffrey Thomas' Roscoea cautleyoides 'Jeffrey Thomas'

A selected form from England notable for pale cream flowers which are lighter than typical for the species.  We're just over the moon about Roscoeas and this uncommon selection is certainly in the top tier.  All the allure of a hardy orchid without the expense.  Trouble free pretty much.

Roscoea forrestii Roscoea forrestii f. forrestii

A species not often encountered for sale, the 2019 RHS Plant Finder lists but two sources in the UK and they won't have many.  Neither do we but we want someone else besides us here in the colonies to enjoy this plus this will give that collector's itch a good scratching.  A stout, smaller species with yellow flowers that is related to R. humeana.

Roscoea humeana 'Boffo' Roscoea humeana 'Boffo'

An excellent clone of ours we have ssslloooowwwlllyyy increased so that we finally have a few to share.  This form as well as our 'Primo' seem to differ from the various Scottish selections of humenana we grow by having MUCH larger flowers.  Totally a must-have and if we weren't obliged to make payroll, we would keep all of them.

Roscoea humeana 'Primo' Roscoea humeana 'Primo'

Another fantastic humeana clone of ours with very large flowers of which we are finally offering a few.  This comes at no small personal diminishment of something deep and pure that must be the precursor to our intrinsic plant hoarding proclivities of which monetary compensation assuages but little.  Similar but different than 'Boffo'.

Roscoea humeana - Early Form Roscoea humeana - Early Form

We received this extraordinary selection from and equally extraordinary plantsman, David Mason of the vaunted former Hedgerows Nursery.  Few members of the genus approach this for impact which is only heightened by flowering before other large-flowered forms.   The emerging spring growth is enclosed in soft salmon sheaths and the hot damn lavender-pink flowers stand proud before the leaves develop.

Roscoea praecox Roscoea praecox

An especially showy Roscoea with light purple flowers sporting nice wide labellums.  The labellum is a lip-like petal usually on the lower part of the flower.  These resemble orchids in their structure and exotic appearance but are so easy to grow.  Makes nice clumps by seed and offsets.

Roscoea purpurea Roscoea purpurea

We always think of this as an easy and affordable substitute for orchids as the flowers are reminiscent.  In the ginger family, this is easy Asian tuberous plant can be grown in part sun to light shade.  It will get a foot or more high and will have a succession of showy purple-pink flowers and clump quickly.

Roscoea purpurea 'Brown Peacock' Roscoea purpurea 'Brown Peacock'

The genus was named for William Roscoe, who founded the Liverpool Botanic Garden way back in the 1800's and is in the same family as culinary ginger, Zingiberaceae.  We have lost our minds over this genus, collecting and hybridizing with abandon.  This is a superb selection out of the UK with dark stems and leaves with pale lavender-tinged flowers.

Roscoea purpurea "Gigantea" Roscoea purpurea 'Gigantea'

We received this plant as the cultivar 'Gigantea' which doesn't appear to be an accepted name hence our double quotes.  Disclaimer aside, it is a big mother, stout of stem, leaf and flower and very grudging with seed and divisions.  Large late summer light purple flowers.  Muy Gigante!

Roscoea purpurea 'Royal Purple Group' Roscoea purpurea 'Royal Purple Group'

Robin White's hybrid which was a gift to us from John Massey at Ashwood Nursery and typical of anything from Robin, this is freaking awesome.  Stout of stem, bold of leaf and arresting of flower, all is colored a rich purple in June and July later mellowing somewhat but still freaking awesome. Unavailable in the US.  Except here.

Roscoea purpurea f. alba NAPE 239 Roscoea purpurea f. alba NAPE 239

We are quite pleased with ourselves for collecting seed of this desireable and scarce variant in the eastern Sino-Himalaya.  This hardy Ginger relative has large flowers with white dorsal petals and a broad white labellum liberally washed in violet.  Very plant-nerd worthy as well as being just a beautiful addition to the garden.

Roscoea purpurea f. rubra 'Red Gurkha' Roscoea purpurea f. rubra syn. 'Red Gurkha'

Fantastic Roscoea only discovered in the 1980's  in Nepal and still scarce as hen's teeth in the nursery trade and always commanding very high prices.  Why is this so good?  It represents a color break in Roscoea with large red flowers which resemble some exotic orchid except this is easier to grow!  It's a show-off plant for sure.

Roscoea scillifolia f. atropurpurea Roscoea scillifolia f. atropurpurea

We quite love the Roscoea clan and we have a special affection for this one which challenges for top honors as having the smallest flowers in the genus.  Why would I want the small flowered one you ask?  Intensely colored purple black Bing Cherry reduction small orchid-like flowers is why.

Roscoea tibetica Roscoea tibetica

A cute little cousin to the hardy Gingers, this Zingiberaceae member has tuberous roots from which low wide short strap leaves appear and in the center are nested small pink orchid-like flowers.  This one has its origin in a Roy Lancaster collection in China.

Roscoea tibetica f. albo-roseus Roscoea tibetica f. albo-roseus

This is a little charmer from a Diana Reeck collection in Yunnan which is quite short to just a few 6" tall but with very lovely pinkish and white flowers.  When we see this bloom it takes us back to those same woods where saw this same species a year after Diana collected its seed in 1996,  This is a sturdy little fellow increasing each year by offsets and reseeding a bit.

Roscoea x beesiana Roscoea x beesiana

A true Ginger relative, this is a vigorous and hardy hybrid between R. auriculata and R. cautleyoides and is a wonderful fusing of all that is good in both parents unlike me who got the short round gene.  Stout tanned foliage with large variably purple streaked flowers in shades of cream.

Roscoea x beesiana 'Monique' Roscoea x beesiana 'Monique'

White flowers with purple streaking on the long labellum - the lower, largest two petals of the flower.  Roscoea auriculata and R. cautleyoides are the presumed parents of x beesiana and this group makes for excellent garden plants.  Taller stems to 16" or a bit more, this can have a ghostly presence - almost eerie, depending on light, mood and current news cycle.
