Dactylorhiza fuchsii 'Bressingham Bonus' Dactylorhiza fuchsii 'Bressingham Bonus'

A selection from Bressingham of this hardy terrestrial orchid chosen for its rapidity of multiplication.  This does a lovely doubling at least each year when happy so a robust clump is not long in the offing.  Good soil and moist but can take some late summer dry.  Rare now and choice.

Dactylorhiza hybrids Dactylorhiza hybrids

These hardy orchids seed around the nursery which is a very good thing as we have never got one to come up from seed we have intentionally planted. This will be pink to purple but sometimes a white one sneaks in. This is basically a bulb that goes summer dormant but appreciates ample moisture when growing.  Likely some species like fuchsii may also be an option here in this Lucky Dip.

Dactylorhiza maculata Dactylorhiza maculata

We presume this is simply a good form of Dactylorhiza maculata as the leaves are broader and the purple-pink flowers held in fatter heads than many of the forms we see around.  A good plant and one we have slowly increased by division and now have a scant few to offer.  Leaves are nicely spotted.

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 albowiana Daphne albowiana

This uncommon Daphne calls the Caucasus Mountains home and we find even its glossy green leaves an ornamental asset but really, one grows Daphne for the flowers.  This has terminal clusters of narrow yellow flowers which are very pleasant and the fun continues after blooming with good display of showy red fruit.  Which is where these came from.  Best in part sun and does great at woodland edge.

Daphne wolongensis MD06 ex China Daphne wolongensis MD06 ex China

Uncommon species which has proven durable in containers and in the garden where it handled the 12F nasty winter of 2016-17 with equanimity.  Pink-backed white flowers followed by red fruit on stiffly upright stems.  From Erlangshan in Sichuan growing with the rare Epimedium flavum on a slope with Cardiocrinum in the wet thicket behind.

Daphne x goodsoniae 'Hinton' Daphne x goodsoniae 'Hinton'

The best seedling from a cross Robin White made between Daphne acutiloba and Daphne sericea 'Collina' with acutiloba as the seed parent although the pollen parent dominates the characteristics.  Robin authored a monograph on Daphne and is a genius breeder and nurseryman with impossibly high standards.  Goodson is his mothers maiden name so quality is a given in the low, open domed plant with fragrant, dusky pink flowers.

Decaisnea fargesii CDHM 14633 Decaisnea fargesii CDHM 14633

Our collection from Leipingshan at 1800 meters in Guizhou in the fall of 2012.  We always get a kick out of this species with its long tropical pinnate leaves. insignificant pale flowers and extraordinarily significant clustered large blue bean pod fruit looking otherwordly.  Narrow small tree and very easy.

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)

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 basuticus Dianthus basuticus

A seldom-encountered Dianthus from the mountains in South Africa.  Apparently the local indigenous use this in magic - we can attest we are transported briefly to another realm when this flowers.  Nice pink flowers on slowly spreading mats which is best suited for the rock garden.  Good drainage in full sun and hardy to zone 7 and possibly lower.

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?

Dierama adelphicum Dierama adelphicum

An impressive Fairy Wand Flower or Angel's Fishing Rod. This is a good species with a narrow presentation and nice flowers of good rich pink held 4'-5' tall on wiry stems. This is not a big robust clumper but tends towards a narrower verticality quite in keeping with modern design trends.

Dierama dracomontanum Dierama dracomontanum

This is a compact Angel's Fishing Rod but it is a lunker in flower power.  This makes a dense evergreen grassy clump which has lots of flower stems bearing pendulous fared pink bells in mid summer.  We have this out in our sunny border and it has been great.  Deer resistant.

Dierama galpinii Dierama galpinii

A less-common Fairy Wandflower we grew from seed from the late Rod and Rachel Saunders of South Africa.  This is a smaller species to 3' and later flowering than most species with its small pink-purple flowers occurring in July and early August.  It is useful as weaning species for the hummingbirds so they don't have to go cold turkey when the others are finished.

Dierama grandiflorum Dierama grandiflorum

Angel's Fishing Rod.  As the specific epithet infers, this does have grand flowers!  Widely flared big medium pink flowers dangle in mad abandon on 4'-5 stems.  If actually used by angels for fishing, then it is the rod Hemingway would use in his Marlin quest.  This assumes he got his wings which seems unlikely.

Dierama hybrid ex. "Tomato Red" Dierama hybrid ex. "Tomato Red"

Seedlings from a floriferous red-flowered selection from Russell Graham.  Russell had one of the most beloved specialty nurseries in the Northwest and to say he knows a good plant is stating the obvious.  The parent plant is a short, dense clumper with small red flowers that rule by their majority.  This has pride of place in our garden, widely separated from our other Dierama, so hope is for similarity on these children.

Dierama Hybrids Dierama Hybrids

So notoriously promiscuous as to make a rabbit blush, these evergreen bulbous Iris family members are all about the summer of love. Embracing any bee that taps on its window bringing pollen from any nearby floozy flower, this exhibits a Bacchanalian moral turpitude that is either damned or extolled.  These are young seed-grown plants from one of our darkest Dierama so at worst, this will still be pretty good.

Dierama jucundum Dierama jucundum

Grown from wild collected seed sent by a friend in South Africa, this species has lavender to light pink slightly flared bell-shaped flowers of good size.  These are held on wiry stems to 3 or 4 feet tall and pair well with many of the ornamental grasses being rather grass-like in foliage itself.  Evergreen.

Digitalis obscura Digitalis obscura

A dwarf Foxglove from Spain and North Africa and a Plant Select introduction for those hot and cold Rocky Moutain gardeners.  Bewitching spires of dark Baltic amber flowers in early summer, this perennial will form nice clumps with multiple flower stems.  Evergreen narrow leaves in less harsh winters, this is hardy to zone 4b.  Not too wet, don't overfeed.

Digitalis parviflora ‘Milk Chocolate’ Digitalis parviflora

Milk Chocolate Foxglove.  This is a fine perennial species from Spain and Portugal that serves double duty as a sculptural piece of garden art.  The deep green leaves are a perfect complement to the short 30" spires of small but densely packed, tubular orange-brown flowers that crowd the stems.  A group of these is a fairly arresting sight.  Low maintenance and deer resistant.

Dipelta yunnanensis Dipelta yunnanensis

Yunnan Honeysuckle.  We saw this plant on the edge of the woods while hiking up to the Gangheba valley. It was an attractive small tree with 2-3 narrow trunks to about about 12' high. It has tubular-pouchy cream flowers flushed lightly in pink with a rich orange throat and attractive, widely winged seeds.  Yunnan Weigela might be a better common name.

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.

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.

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.
