Lapageria rosea Lapageria rosea

This is one of those plants worth the greenhouse space if you can't grow it outside which we can't.  An evergreen vine from Chile where it is the national flower. Big waxy pendant flowers of typically rose red. These normally flower in late summer and fall. and we were entranced by beautiful specimens in bloom when we visited the west of Scotland in the fall of 2013.

Lathyrus aureus Lathyrus aureus

Uncommon species which has an understated wowness.  Not flamboyant this nonetheless garners lots of attention with its clusters of copper-orange Pea flowers in mid to late spring which are set off nicely by the dense light green leaves.  Long-lived and choice perennial.

Lathyrus roseus Lathyrus roseus

This is one sweet Pea.  Native to the Caucasus Mts, this takes a backseat to its more floriferous and showy cousins for it has simple pairs of pink flowers borne with restraint.  Don't be misled - it is the backseat of a Bentley.  Perfection of leaf and flower in exquisite refinement.

Leontodon rigens Leontodon rigens

From Cotswold Plants in England via our plant daddy Jim Fox, comes this Azorean endemic formerly known as Microseris ringens.  This has been surprisingly hardy given the Azores are far from being a frost pocket.  Broad green leaves make a dense clump from the eventual multiple crowns, each which supports a succession of yellow daisies in clustered heads on short stems. This is what a Dandelion aspires to be when it grows up.

Edelweiss, Edelweiss, every morning you greet me, small and white, clean and bright, you look happy to meet me, blossom of snow may you bloom and grow, bloom and grow forever.  The classic alpine from the Alps.  Sue used to work for the von Trapps and is really tired of this song but still likes the plant.

Lepisorus bicolor Lepisorus bicolor

Pretty awesome evergreen fern because not only is it cool but it increases fast enough to make a statement in the garden before you are in your dotage and have forgotten why you bought this yet not in that rampaging acreage-eating Borg-assimilating manner that is sometimes described as "a good nursery plant".

Lepisorus sp. MD2506 Lepisorus sp. MD06-256

Our collection in Mogecuo, Sichuan found growing in thick moss atop a large boulder shaded by Rhododendron bureavioides.  Pretty sure on the genus and obviously floundering on the species.  The genus has undergone recent revision and names may not yet be finalized.  Hardy for us and decidous.

Leptospermum grandiflorum 'Eugene Hardy' Leptospermum grandiflorum 'Eugene Hardy'

One of the hardiest of the Leptospermums which, in time and left alone, will achieve the appearance of a ruggedly handsome small tree. We say this in case you have control issues and mistake shearing for pruning in which case this will be a nice dense ball.  Or square.  Or blob.  Evergreen, nice white flowers, deer-proof, drought tolerant. Thanks to Leptophiliac Ian Barclay for sharing this..

Leptospermum juniperinum - Mount Imlay Form Leptospermum juniperinum - Mount Imlay Form

A collection from Mount Imlay in New South Wales of an expected hardier form of the species. Prickly needle-like leaves on a multi-stemmed shrub with white flowers although light pink flowers have been reported in that location. Ours is white so that takes the guesswork out. This should be fine in milder gardens here in the Puget Sound and can take poorly drained situations. Deer do not find this tasty.

Leptospermum lanigerum Purple Leaf Form Leptospermum lanigerum Purple Leaf Form

Exceptional form of the species we received from the Master Of Leptospermum, Ian Barclay of Desert Northwest. This fast-growing Tea Tree will become a fine large shrub to 15' in mild areas.  Silver-purplish needle-like leaves in summer turn darker purple in fall & winter.  The small white flowers are visual madness.

Leptospermum namadgiensis Leptospermum namadgiensis

Evergreen alpine Aussie growing in the same habitat as Snow Gums.  This has billowy gray-green foliage and 1" white flowers borne on last year's wood.  With age the bark exfoliates and reveals a very shiny trunk which adds to the allure.  Sun, good drainage, dryish and phooey to the deer.

Pinecone Thistle.  Pretty cool 6"-12" tall plant from dry pine woods and wastelands in southern Europe and northern Africa.  The spineless gray-green, thistle-like leaves, are felted gray-white underneath and are a perfect accompaniment to the art project flowers.  Tufts of filamentous purplish flowers erupt from hefty cones of overlapping, feathered brown scales.

Libertia 'Nelson Dwarf' Libertia 'Nelson Dwarf'

A superb compact and very floriferous plant we got from the sadly late Michael Wickenden at Cally Gardens in Scotland.  This is just about the perfect little container plant with low, dense tuffets of deep green narrow blades of leaves and a profusion of small white flowers on short stems which retain interest long after flowering with their seed heads.

Very rare Libertia - which is a genus in the Iris family - from New Zealand which was thought to be extinct until a population of 30 individuals was discovered in 2006.  Closely allied to Libertia ixioides, this species is critically endangered in the wild but gardeners are helping with ex situ conservation through cultivation.  Evergreen olive-green leaves to 15"-18" on a clump forming plant with white flowers and persistent orange-ish seed pods.

Lilium mackliniae - KW form Lilium mackliniae - KW form

Awesome rare lily known only from NE India where Frank Kingdon-Ward first collected it in either Manipur or Nagaland and named it after his wife whose maiden name was Macklin.  Pale pink flowers in late spring and early summer are a lovely thing indeed on this smaller collector's lily.  Frank's wife must have been an exquisite creature.

Lilium mackliniae - pink form Lilium mackliniae - pink form

This selection of this collector's species merits a very good spot in the garden.  Any selection of the species certainly could lay claim to the best real estate but this strain out of the UK which is a shade or two pinker than typical takes an impossible task of improving upon perfection and makes it possible.

Seed-grown plants of a rare form of a rare lily rarely available from one rare plant grower in the UK.  We are eschewing subliminal suggestions and going right to the heavy hammer of repetitive rarity.  This form came about in cultivation from seed-raised plants in the UK and when mature is twice as tall as the typical species.  Nice soft pink flowers.

Our cross between the "typical" Lilium mackliniae and the Saramati form which will be recognized as a distinct variety of the species.  The former has larger flowers and is more campanulate while the latter is a high elevation variant with smaller flowers and blooms earlier.  This hybrid is very uniform from seed, short, stout, earlier than typical
