Ancylostemon saxatilis CGG Ancylostemon saxatilis CGG 14090

A collection from China of this surpirisingly hardy gesneriad whose identity remains a mystery.  This was growing on a mountain summit in a shaded area with hard limestone outcrops coated in thick moss which proved ideal conditions for this little gem.  Tubular yellow flowers are a delight and has handled 10F in our garden growing in a stump.

Galanthus elwesii 'Hallelujah' Galanthus 'Hallelujah'

To our knowledge, not available in this country and very scarce elsewhere.  An early bloomer, in fact, it is flowering now this late December in its pots sitting outside unprotected as we have had a relatively mild winter so far. Huge flowers, increases well and a good performer in the garden.

Galax urceolata - Watnong form Galax urceolata - 'Watnong Form'

A southeastern native in one of our favorite families, the Diapensiaceae, this has unapologetic beautiful evergreen foliage and wands of white flowers which evoke our native Vanilla Leaf, Achlys triphylla. This form, we assume from Watnong Nursery in Morris Plains, NJ, is notable for very good vigor and garden adaptability. Spreads not fast enough by runners and appreciates looser forest-type soil.

Garrya elliptica 'James Roof' Garrya elliptica 'James Roof'

'James Roof' is a man among boys when you are talking West Coast Silktassels. This male cultivar is gloriously well-hung with flowering catkins that dangle nearly a foot in length resulting in catkin-envy among other Garrya cultivars and the occasional insecure gardener.  Or so we are told. Tough evergreen doing it's thing in early spring.

Garrya x issaquahensis 'Carl English' Garrya x issaquahensis 'Carl English'

One of the best of the hybrids, this Silk Tassle bush is a cross between Garrya elliptica and G. fremontii. It has nice rounded evergreen leaves with catkins 8"-10" long in shades of green and purple in the winter. Just when SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder - ratchets up, Carl talks us down from the ledge. Tough plant and tolerant of some dry.

Garrya x issaquahensis 'Glasnevin Wine' Garrya x issaquahensis 'Glasnevin Wine'

Exceptional selection of this cross between Garrya elliptica and G. fremontii from Glasnevin in Ireland.  What is notable about this is the long late winter catkins have conspicuous wine-colored bands.  We're talking Pinot Noir here not Pinot Grigio.  As a bonus, the stems are dark colored as well.  Winter interest, anyone?

Gaultheria schultesii Gaultheria schultesii

A rare relative of our local Salal (Gaultheria shallon) collected by Jeanette Kunnen in the mountains above Oaxaca in Mexico. We were given cuttings by the late Ericaceous collector Art Dome who grew this to perfection at his Seward Park garden in Seattle. Scrumptious new growth and lots of pink bells followed by blue-black berries. Art grew his against a terraced wall on a slope where it got morning sun and it was a happy camper.

A classy selection we brought in from the UK as the pure white clone 'Serenity,' but turns out to be a dead-ringer for this Scottish selection with alternate petals dusted in light turquoise.  At first we were a wee put off and aye, felt a bit of an eejit, but now we ken this a bonny lass and we not be haverin'.

Gentiana acaulis Gentiana acaulis

A strong-growing form favored among some of the remaining specialty nurseries in Oregon.  Dense evergreen mats of tight foliage erupt in spring and sporadically thereafter, with improbably large and impossibly saturated deep blue trumpets.  This mountain species is no effete alpine, moist rich soil is its cup of tea.

Gentiana acaulis 'Bielefeld' Gentiana acaulis 'Bielefeld'

Selection out of Germany of this darned fine species.  Evergreen tight mats of small green leaves with impossible azure blue trumpets standing at attention looking very superior and perfect.  Well, it is a German selection after all and this shows a certain adherance to standards which the lesser gentians can only dream about attaining.

Gentiana acaulis 'Holzmannii' Gentiana acaulis 'Holzmannii'

Evergreen mat-former with very large cobalt blue trumpets spring to early summer.  This might ruin your other blue flowers for you as they will look embarassingly insipid in comparison.   A rich moist soil in full to mostly sun is best.  Despite popular opinion, these are pigs and thrive on a good manure mulch!

Gentiana acaulis 'Krebs' Gentiana acaulis 'Krebs'

Gentiana acaulis Hybrid 'Maxima' Gentiana acaulis 'Maxima'

One of the largest flowered selections of Gentiana acaulis, this is truly a showstopper with its big, deep blue trumpets in spring and lighter reblooms after.  It may owe its vigor to hybridity but whatever the reason, we are down with it!  Moist, rich soil in sun and stand back and enjoy. Gentiana acaulis 'Maxima Enzian' is likely the same as Enzian is German for Gentian.

Gentiana acaulis 'Rannoch' Gentiana acaulis 'Rannoch'

A few think is a hybrid or perhaps the closely related G. angustifolia but it makes no difference in the garden however as this is riveting with freely produced large trumpets that scream BLUE!!!!  Really quite impossible to assess this taxon objectively when you are totally gobsmacked by the flowers. A selection we brought home from Scotland.

Gentiana acaulis 'Sternschnuppe' Gentiana acaulis 'Sternschnuppe'

A fine selection with seasonally variable light blue trumpet flowers. Most folks instantly gravitate towards the impossibly dark blue selections and while these are critical to have, consider how much darker they will look with this growing alongside.  Just sayin'.  Evergreen mats in rich soil.

Gentiana acaulis 'Undulatifolia' Gentiana acaulis 'Undulatifolia'

I want my burial mound covered solid in this - seriously, it's that good.  Wavy edged leaves on a low evergreen clumper with big deep blue trumpets on 2"+ stems.  An established clump of this is simply riveting with dozens of big flowers the blue you dream of.  Rich soil and moist.  Loves food.

Gentiana angustifolia Gentiana angustifolia

A close relative to Gentiana acaulis and regarded as being in the acaulis group. This is one of the forms found in the nursery trade here in the PNW which means it is a good grower.  Maybe a little mongrel vigor from G. acaulis to pump up the volume on those big blue trumpet flowers above an evergreen spreading mat.
