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.

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 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?

Alpine Wintergreen. Our collection as cuttings of this little groundcover growing on the shores just above waterline at a montane forest lake in northern California. Seldom encountered for sale despite being distributed across the western US and Canada. White flowers with a red calyx followed by red fruit.  This has been easy-peasy for us and enjoys an airy moist soil high in organic matter.

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 'Bellatrix' Gentiana 'Bellatrix'

One of the very good Asiatic gentian hybrids which we procured in Scotland a few years back and can now offer.  This has good, white megaphone-shaped flowers which are liberally, if subtly, spritzed with pale blue spots.  Makes a dense small mat of green needle leaves which dies back in winter.  Moist, acidic and sunny.

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 'Eugen's Allerbester' Gentiana 'Eugen's Allerbester'

This Asiatic Gentian has fully double dark blue flowers lasting for weeks in late August into Fall and will cause visitors to perform a potentially dangerous pivot in midstep as they are strolling by when they realize they are seeing double so have your waivers all signed. Sun and moist acidic soil.

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 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 which we received from our friend Urs Baltensperger.  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 - Nursery Origin

This Gentiana acaulis very close relative and indeed is regarded as being in the acaulis group, is one of the forms found in the nursery trade here in the PNW which is why refer to it as Nursery Origin.  Unless it is from a known wild population, chances are good there is G. acaulis in its bloodlines.  Not a bad thing to have a little mongrel vigor to push those big blue trumpet flowers above an evergreen spreading mat.

Gentiana cf. veitchiorum Gesala "B" MD12-61 Gentiana cf. veitchiorum Gesala "B" MD12-61

Rich deep blue trumpets with exterior pale striping on this collection of ours from a 10,000' alpine moist meadow in China where it mingled with toomany Primula, dwarf Rhododendron and a Bistort relative we sorely wished had seed.  This requires rich, moist acid soil with afternoon shade in hot sun areas.

Gentiana sino-ornata 'Weisser Traub' (White Dream) Gentiana sino-ornata 'Weisser Traub' (White Dream)

We love the Asiatic Gentians and want them all as they are easy, hardy and put on such a show in late summer/early fall.  We were thrilled toget this one from our friend Urs of Edelweiss Nursery who brought this in from a German gentian specialist.  Not your typical blue, this has white flowers with pale yellowish stripes.  Moist and sun.

Geranium malviflorum Geranium malviflorum

We acquired this incredibly tough, tuberous, summer dormant Geranium in the 80's from East Lambrook in southern England which was home to Margery Fish and the original English Cottage Garden.  Provenance alone is merit enough but good lavender blue flowers and drought tolerance carries the day.

Geranium orientalitibeticum Geranium orientalitibeticum

This is a tough little groundcover Geranium that spreads by underground rhizomes forming little "bulbs" along the way.  Very nice foliage with good marbled patterns and bright purely pink flowers are such a pleasure that it's peregrinations into its neighbors are forgiven.  Cheerfully tough.

Geum 'Bell Bank' Geum 'Bell Bank'

Awesome Geum rivale hybrid from Yorkshire plantsman Geoffrey Smith which we brought back from Binny Plants in Scotland some years ago and can now offer a few from division. This has a refinement lacking in the newer in-your-face hybrids which we quite appreciate. Nodding coppery-pink flowers straighten out becoming soft pink. This is the correct clone as opposed to mislabeled plants from Holland.

Gillenia (syn. Porteranthus) trifoliata 'Pink Profusion' Gillenia (syn. Porteranthus) trifoliata 'Pink Profusion'

Did we mean to infer that this is a PINK Gillenia????  Why yes, we did.  And it is.  Pink, definitely pink.  An exciting offering of a dandy variant on a choice eastern native.  Pink Bowman's Root will get 24"-30" tall with multiple stems sporting an airy array of pink flowers.  Great fall color as well.

Gladiolus 'Ruby' Gladiolus 'Ruby'

A purported G. papilio hybrid, our mama plant when in bloom with its 5 foot stems of red-mauve flowers sporting dark eye patches, frequently caused plant geeks to start speaking in tongues and offer creative enticements in exchange for a wee bit.  We have had to say "No." until now.

Gladiolus cardinalis Gladiolus cardinalis

Riveting species from mountainous regions in South Africa where it grows on moist cliffs and near waterfalls.  Vivid cardinal-red flowers on slender stems with white blazes on the lower 3 petals makes this nearly imperative to own.  This is hardy in the PNW thankfully especially if mulched in the event of severe winter cold.

Gladiolus dalenii Gladiolus dalenii

A hardy Gladiolus that could win over that segment of gardeners who just don't like glads but we suspect they would be glad to grow this.  Happy even.  Some verging on ecstatic.  Smaller statured in leaf and flower, this will make nice clumps with flowers of  a clear,  soft creamery-butter yellow.  Mulch if winter is bitter.

Gladiolus dalenii 'Boone' Gladiolus dalenii 'Boone'

Found in Boone North Carolina by an extension agent, this Glad is possibly a hybrid with dalenii and has pretty awesome cold hardiness having proven itself in zone 6.  July flower spikes to 4' with apricot flowers touched in peach at the petal tips as well as in the throat.  Very good increaser as this makes numerous cormlets so spread the love.

This really wants good drainage and hot sun and you will be smitten by the Horned Poppy.

Globularia cordifolia Globularia cordifolia

Heart-leafed Globe Daisy. Pleasing little alpine from the mountains of southern Europe and Turkey. Low and slowly spreading domes like a small overturned pie with evergreen leaves and lavender-blue pom-pom flowers on short stems.
