Ancylostemon saxatilis CGG Ancylostemon saxatilis CGG

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 'Galatea' Galanthus 'Galatea'

Very similar to 'Magnet' in both flower and vigor (excellent btw) and one noticeable difference of the sort that Galanthophiles hone into with great delight is the little kink in the pedicel holding the flower.

Galanthus 'Green Tear' Galanthus 'Green Tear'

A surprise gift to us some years back from our friend and Galanthus Guru, Dr. John Grimshaw.  This had apparently just commanded the top price paid for any snowdrop in the UK and needless to say, we remain flabbergasted!  Hard to believe, but this is way less expensive now for this choice rarity.  Just a smidgeon available of this bit of viridescent perfection.

Galanthus elwesii 'Hallelujah' Galanthus 'Hallelujah'

This was a purchase by the Miller Botanic Garden in the late 90's from the RHS store at Wisley and to our knowledge, is 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 resembling an elwesii Whittall Group

Galanthus 'John Gray' Galanthus 'John Gray'

A choice Snowdrop with very large single flowers and one of the earliest to bloom.  This was found in the garden of John Gray in England and is a hard one to come by.  Increases moderately well and seems to be a survivor with a good constitution as it is going strong here while more effete selections have dwindled.

Galanthus elwesii 'Don Armstrong' Galanthus elwesii 'Don Armstrong'

This unusual Galanthus elwesii is a poculiform type named for British Columbia gardener.   Poculiform comes from the Latin poculus which means "little cup" and in these types, the inner segments have disappeared but reinvented themselves as an extra set of outer petals.  "Don Armstrong" is an excellent selection with large and equal white petals that is simply serenely elegant.

Galanthus plicatus 'Colossus' Galanthus plicatus 'Colossus'

This vigorous and large flowered selection came to us from snowdrop collector Carole Jennings who generously shared her collection with us. Love plant folks like her!  This is one of the largest of snowdrops - very aptly named - and very early to flower.  This was found by Lady Elwes in her Colesbourne garden who later personally gave Carole Jennings her bulb from whence these have sprung.

Galanthus plicatus 'Warham' Galanthus plicatus 'Warham'

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.

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.

Gentiana 'Barbara Lyle' Gentiana 'Barbara Lyle'

An Asiatic hybrid Gentian which we brought in from the UK.  Dark blue, upward-facing flowers are................really nice.  Sorry - memory of this in flower last year caused the gray matter to assume the consistency of molten chocolate cake and briefly lost all the pretty words. A particularly floriferous selection as well.

Excellent introduction from the breeding work of Keith lever at Aberconwy Nursery in Wales.  A compact grower with dark blue upward facing trumpets lined with white in the interior.  This requires full sun to do its best and requires a rich, acidic soil that stays moist.  Your reward is one heckuva show in late August clear into October.

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'

A selection of this outstanding European alpine species notable for having large flowers and being quite a good bloomer. Not all acaulis flower freely but 'Krebs' brings it with large upward-facing trumpets of impossible blue in mid spring.  Now you don't have to be embarrased you have Krebs.  Rich moist soil in sun.  Hardy to zone 5.
