Calanthe 'Kozu' Calanthe 'Kozu'

This choice terrestrial orchid is a hybrid between Calanthe discolor and the rare C. izu-insularis resulting from breeding work in Japan.  The flowers are nicely displayed above the pleated leaves with muted maroon sepals and petals which contrasts beautifully with the light pink labellum that is edged in white.  Divisions from our plants - not laboratory imports.  Just a very few normally available only onsite.

Calceolaria arachnoidea Calceolaria arachnoidea

There is really nothing else like this plant from the Chilean Andes with its cobwebby silver foliage topped in summer by 8"-12" stems bearing small purple lady slipper flowers. You're not microdosing - it's for real. This is surprisingly hardy to zone 6 especially given snow cover but in our winters, good drainage is key as months of cold soggy soil is anathema.

Callistemon 'Woodlanders Hardy' Callistemon 'Woodlanders Hardy'

Bottlebrush.  Perhaps the hardiest clone enduring single digits with scarcely a whimper.  (It may be whimpering but my own wails of despair drown all else out).  Evergreen picking up russet tones in winter.  Summer fuzzy red flowers on the stems.  Deer Proof/drought tolerant.

Callistemon subulatus Callistemon subulatus

One of the hardiest Bottlebrushes to 10F with the added benefit of having red flowers. In growth, this this tends to have graceful arching branches which softens what can sometimes be a rigid look to Callistemon.  Not that that is a bad thing but this looks a bit more cuddly.  This grows on stream banks in Australia and can take quite wet spots but is also tolerant of dry.  Deer proof!

Callistemon viridiflorus - Hardy Clone Callistemon viridiflorus - Hardy Clone

This clone of an already hardy bottlebrush species has been hardier than
the typical offering by a few degrees and personally, our most grievous
losses have been by a few degrees.  This is likely from a higher and
more exposed location in Tasmania as it is also more compact than
typical and has handled one winter where it went into single digits.

Campanula 'Summer Pearl' Campanula 'Summer Pearl'

A little gem this one is. Fully double white flowers like elfin roses held on short stems in spring and early summer on this little creeper. Perfectly suited to the rockery, rock garden or special spot, this will charm even the most cynical and caustic of gardeners except those who hate double flowers but even they awake smiling on occasion in the middle of the night after dreaming of this blooming in their garden.

Campanula lactiflora NCE219 Campanula lactiflora NCE219

This Campanula was collected in Russia at Karachayevo-Cherkessiya, Terbeda, Gonachkir Valley at 1800 meters so next time you are there, keep an eye peeled for it.  This potentially can reach 3'-5' tall in flower with nice heads of pale lavender to white flowers in midsummer.  Is it hardy, you ask?  Da!

Campanula punctata 'Nana Alba' Campanula punctata 'Nana Alba'

Campanula punctata conjurs visions of Mongol hordes sweeping across the Tartar plains of what once was your garden.  Granted this is a good spreader but certainly not the 'Cherry Bells' version of Sherman's March on Atlanta.  One third size and spread but full size huge white bell flowers.

Cardamine glanduligera Cardamine glanduligera

Lovely species in the group formerly placed in the genus Dentaria referring to their crinkled molar-like rhizomes.  We do enjoy the the color of the purple-pink flowers in early spring but there is a quality of texture and sheen to the leaves that makes us consistently murmur  'I like that plant" whenever we pass by it.

Cardamine waldsteinii Cardamine waldsteinii

One of those spring ephemerals we totally groove on.  This tuberous Toothwort is native to the woodlands of the former Yugoslavia so current geography is from Bosnia through Croatia and into stable Austria.  This will form a little colony but is not annoying in the least and is so delightful with its sizable white flowers in March.

Cardiocrinum cordatum Cardiocrinum cordatum

Grown from seed collected in the Yoro Mts in Japan, this compensates for being shorter than its cousins by being hardier to Zone 6.  Personally, I subscribe to the fishing theory that it is not the size of the worm you use but how you wiggle it.  Rich moist soil and creamy trumpets in 2-3 years.
