Dahlia 'Bishop of Canterbury' Dahlia 'Bishop of Canterbury'

A wild combination of bright magenta flowers and dark foliage which, after our initial recoil of horror, we have come to appreciate and indeed, admire. We have enough botanically interesting plants with green flowers and things ending in "minutiflora" that a blast of color is a rush and a good reminder that color is fun.  We can leave our Dahlia in the ground over winter here.

Dahlia imperialis Dahlia imperialis

Tree Dahlia.  This gets 20+ feet tall.  I repeat, 20+ feet tall.  With stalks as thick as your arm, this gives the effect of a large clump of Bamboo but no it's a Dahlia.  One would imagine the flowers to be the size of trash can lids but are normal 5" lavender pink blossoms.  Excellent cut for tall vases.

Danae racemosa Danae racemosa

Panache oozes from the phylloclades of this haute shade shrub.  Before you get nervous, phylloclades are leaf-like organs of modified stem tissue as this nonpareil evergreen is so far beyond the cutting edge that true leaves are just so yesterday.  Small green flowers to delight a microscopist, showy red berries in fall.

Daphne mezereum Daphne mezereum

February Daphne.  Narrow upright small shrub whose bare branches are clad in early spring with lots lavender pink flowers.  The light blue green leaves appear after the flowers are done and all in all is very desireable plant.  These are small starter plants which will settle right in.

Daphniphyllum macropodum H2MD086 Daphniphyllum macropodum H2MD086

Rare offering from a wild collection in Asia of this durable evergreen large shrub. Looking for all the world like a rhododendron in form with leaves accented by red petioles, this lacks the showy flowers.  It's flowers are small and dioecious - male and female on separate plants - so one plant won't give you the lovely clusters of purple-black fruit but even fruitless, it is still pretty cool.

Darmera peltata Darmera peltata

Indian Rhubarb.  California native that is an imposing sight in the garden.  This is a superior form with darker flowers and somewhat more textured foliage.  Streamside dweller that loves a wet rich soil where the big rounded leaves can really do their thing.

Deinanthe caerulea Deinanthe caerulea

We've always regarded this herbaceous Hydrangea relative from Asia as one of the preeminent collector's plants for the shade garden.  From a woody rootstock each spring arises multiple stems holding textured rounded leaves tinged in soft purple edges with midsummer terminal clusters of lavender flowers possessing the most exquisite detail.

Deinanthe caerulea x bifida Deinanthe caerulea x bifida

From manic hybridizer Darrell Probst comes this herbaceous Hydrangea relative.  Softer blue than D. caerulea but with leaves showing a distinct Camel Toe cleft attesting to D. bifida affinity.  (Had a friend who was Wardrobe Mstress for PNW Ballet and Camel Toes were her bane)

Delosperma 'Fire Spinner' Delosperma 'Fire Spinner'

'Amazing' is a descriptive too often used when 'Pretty good' or 'Not too bad' would be more appropriate.  Well, this hardy Ice Plant from South Africa's Cape region is freaking Ah-Mazing!  Collected by Panayoti Kelaidis, this has performed for 10 years in Denver.  Fast groundcover with orange,red, neon magenta and white flowers.

Price: $12.00

Delosperma 'Kelaidis' Delosperma 'Kelaidis'

Zone 5 hardy Ice Plant which arose as a spontaneous hybrid seedling in Denver and was named for our friend Panayoti Kelaidis, Senior Curator at Denver Botanic Garden and great guy at a party.  Key here is great drainage for our winter wet.  Lean, sandy soil and a gravel mulch is a good idea. Flowers the color of thin-sliced backlit salmon Lox.

Delosperma deleeuwiae Delosperma deleeuwiae

Hardy Ice Plant and yes it is de-lew-ee-ay in case you were wondering.  This is from  a Halda collection at 12000' in Lesotho South Africa.  It may even be hardier than Zone 5.  Large and lively (how I like to think of myself) magenta pink flowers fairly cover the plant in early summer.  Takes dry.

Delosperma hybrid 'John Proffit' Delosperma hybrid 'John Proffit'

Hardy Ice Plant that has large 1.5" bright fuchsia pink flowers with a pale center.  This needs good drainage and low fertility to handle our winter wet but we have seen some good patches around.  One of the best has been on the western edge of a big Doug Fir which is always pretty dry and this thriving where little else will.  Puts on a show!

Deparia lobato-crenata Deparia lobato-crenata

Another one of those hyphenated names which pique our interest no doubt due to some character defect on our part but there is nothing defective about this Japanese gem. Glossy evergreen leaves are evocative of Blechnum which is high praise in our book.  Gently, almost apologetically creeps to form a congenial aggregation of crowns

Deutzia hookeriana SBEC644 Deutzia hookeriana SBEC644

This has grown into one of our favorite small deciduous shrubs which we grow near our bog garden.  Collected in China on the Sino-British Expedition to Cangshan in 1981 which was one of the first western botanic expeditions to China in modern times.  Copious rosy-pink flowers on a 4'-6' tall shrub.  Zone 6 at least.

Deutzia scabra 'Variegata' Deutzia scabra 'Variegata'

Grand deciduous shrub which brings a strong visual sashay to the garden with unapologetically brazen variegated leaves.  This makes eye contact and holds it until you respond.  Then the scented white flowers appear and you know you should leave but your feet don't move leaving you in the best sort of trouble.

Dianthus 'Little Joe' Dianthus 'Little Joe'

A classic little Dianthus for the rock garden where it is a standout in a well-drained sunny position.  'Little Joe' makes small clumps of tight blue-green foliage and when the dark red flowers on 5" stems cover the plant in May into June, the effect is big and more like 'Hoss' than 'Little Joe'..

Dianthus barbatus 'Monksilver Black' Dianthus barbatus 'Monksilver Black'

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  Awesome Sweet William selected by John Grimshaw from seedlings at Monksilver Nursery and is notable for the foliage which turns maroon-black providing the perfect foil for the velvety maroon clustered flowers which smells of chocolate in warm weather - damn!  Cut back after flowering for another go around.  John personally gave us a piece from his garden so we have a fond attachment.

Dianthus superbus Dianthus superbus

A collection from China by Olsen & Floden of this well-known ornamental pink or carnation.  Very nice to have a documented collection as the cultivated material can get a little diluted via unintentional hybridization in the garden.  I know that is some of the most fun we have in the garden.  Good lacy hot tomato/fuchsia-pink flowers that are scented.

Dicentra cucullaria Dicentra cucullaria

Classic spring epehemeral of the eastern woodlands with ferny foliage in early spring and white flowers in March.  This will go dormant by late spring and is an excellent little plant to grow on top of later growing shade loving lily species or Arisaemas so that you get double duty out of the same planting spot.

Dicentra formosa ssp oregana 'Langtrees' Dicentra formosa ssp oregana 'Langtrees'

Bleeding Heart.  Given the Award of Garden Merit in the UK, this is truly a winner with icy blue ferny foliage subtending the dangling white heart shaped flowers.  A superb form of our western native and deserving of a place in any garden.  Can you tell we like it?

Dichroa febrifuga - UBC Form Dichroa febrifuga - UBC Form

Best form of the species with good green leaves and clustered ok to unremarkable pale pink flowers which transmorgrifies into totally remarkably awesome bunches of impossible blue fruit which seems crazy out of place in the woodland but now you can't imagine shade without.

Dichroa sp. - North Vietnam Dichroa sp. DJHV#

A collection from north Vietnam by Dan Hinkley of this hydrangea relative. While lacking the showing sterile bracts which constitute the "flowers" in hydrangeas, this has a quiet charm in flower and an attractive display of pinkish-lavender fruit. Hardiness is uncertain but with most Dichroa, zone 8b to 9 is preferred.

Diphylleia cymosa Diphylleia cymosa

A very choice plant from the Applachian Mts and closely allied to Podophyllum as they are both herbaceous members of the Berberidaceae.  Broad leaves to a foot or more across with small white flowers which are easy to miss but screaming blue berries holler "Look at me!".  Shade.

Disporopsis arisanensis Disporopsis arisanensis

Evergreen Solomon Seal relative from Taiwan via plantsman Ozzie Johnson. Loves moist shade in zones 7-9 where the rounded leaves on stems up to a foot shelter the hanging white bell flowers.  Combines well with all of those shade garden plants that any self respecting plant collector loves so rest assured that garden harmony will remain intact.

Disporopsis arisanensis - Heronswood Form Disporopsis arisanensis - Heronswood Form

An evergreen Solomon's Seal relative from the mountainous slopes of Taiwan where it forms thick clumps as part of the rich understory. Low arching stems hold white bells underneath the leaves. Even though it is evergreen, we trim back the old stems in spring just before the new growth starts. Hardy to zone 7.

Disporopsis arisanensis BSWJ1894 Disporopsis arisanensis BSWJ1864

A collection by the Wynn-Jones from Taiwan and likely the first introduction of this species to cultivation.  An uncommon evergreen lookalike to Solomon Seal, this has low arching stems to 8"-12" with broad leaves and late spring-early summer white flowers colored with purplish markings on the interior.  Shade, moist and hardy zone 7-9.

Disporopsis aspersa MD06002 Disporopsis aspersa MD06002

Our collection from the Erlangshan in Sichuan in 2006 of a robust form of the species.  White flowers in small bells held under the evergreen stems.  Of the 8 or so clones of this species, this collection is easily the most vigorous spreader and held its evergreen foliage quite nicely through 6 nights of 15F.  Shade is good.

Disporopsis aspersa RHR CH047 Disporopsis aspersa RHR CH047

Collected by Riz Reyes in Sichuan in 2005, this is a superb form of the species with the largest flowers of any of the clones we grow.  Admittedly, Disporopsis in flower will never make the cover of glossy magazine but this is good.  Whitish flowers with yellowish tones in the interior.  Evergreen to 24".

Disporopsis bakeri  syn. D. pernyi 'Bill Baker' Disporopsis bakeri syn. D. pernyi 'Bill Baker'

Surprisingly tough evergreen Chinese Solomon Seal relative which simply performs in the shade garden.  This was recently given specific status after being introduced as D. pernyi 'Bill Baker' and the new species commemorates J.G. Baker who studied Asparagaceae as well as Bill Baker.  White flowers with an interior swatched in dark chocolate.

Extreme rarity from the summit of Jinfoshan where this was found growing in moss and leaf litter atop a narrow shoulder of hard limestone napped in snow from the night before. A diminutive species to just 3" tall with small evergreen thumbnail leaves and small white flowers touched in rose on the interior. Light lavender fruit follows.
