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 '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, increases well and a good performer in the garden.

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.

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.

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 hybrid selection of the Asiatic Gentians.  I've always envied the Strathmore's in their big Manor House and the huge estate with impeccable gardens and all just so and in perfect taste with impeccable timing.  And all seemingly effortless.  Rich moist soil results in decadent sky-blue trumpets.

Gentiana 'Troon' Gentiana 'Troon'

A large-flowered and very dark blue selection bred by Scotsman Ian McNaughton.  The October trumpets are so dark that a distinct wash of purple plays in the outer throat of the corolla as I look at it on this October 8.  This wee bairn of Ian's breeding meets his goals of bigger and more flowers - a bonny Gentian!

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.
