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.

Lathyrus vernus - Narrow Leaf Lathyrus vernus - Narrow Leaf

A superb and rarely offered form of Lathyrus vernus, the Spring Bush Pea.  This has long willow-like leaves compared to the typical form and the same lovely violet flowers.  A graceful perennial, this makes a dense clump retaining textural interest long after the flowers fade.

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.

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".

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 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.

Leptospermum rupestre Leptospermum rupestre

One of the hardiest Leptospermums, this creeping form is from the alpine areas of Tasmania and has grown for many years at the Arboretum in Seattle. Evergreen leaves with small white flowers, this would be a shame not to have it in the rock garden and a greater shame not to have it spilling over a wall.

Leucosceptrum stellipilum Leucosceptrum stellipilum

This tasteful perennial from Japan bides its time in the shade garden as the floral hoi polloi scrabble for attention during spring and summer.  Once the fracas has died down, this takes centerstage in Sept/Oct with its intricately constructed buds which open to fuzzy light lavender flowers.

Leucothoe keiskei Leucothoe keiskei

This is a choice Japanese native which boasts the largest flowers in the genus.  Inch long creamy white bells dangle beneath the gracefully arching branches.  The summer green leaves develop burgundy to red coloration in the winter.  Gorgeous arching over a rock or mossy log.  Morning sun to dappled light is ideal.

Newer hybrid selection of this New Zealand Iris relative.  Evergreen (except for hard winters) olive green foliage provides a grand setting for the numerous stems of small bright white flowers.  This makes a clump pretty quickly and is great texture in the garden.  This is a performer.

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.

Ligularia dentata 'Othello' Ligularia dentata 'Othello'

Othello' rocked the house in a comprehensive Chicago Botanic Garden trial of Ligularia cultivars and garnered the best possible rating. Was it the impressive 4' tall flower stems holding excellent 4" in diameter yellow-orange flowers in profusion? Or maybe the bold purplish new growth fading to a bronzy green?

Lilium duchartrei Lilium duchartrei

One of those captivating Chinese species.  This has a neat stoloniferous habit sending out runners and making new bulbs so you soon have a grove of Lilies.  Flowers white with dark spots with recurved petals in the classic "Turk's Cap" style.  We love it.

Lilium lankongense Lilium lankongense

Lovely, lovely species with classic Turk's cap shaped flowers of gentle pink with a lavender nuance further enhanced by a sprinkle of darker beauty spots on the downturned face which exhales a light fragrance that takes but the slightest stirring of the air to swirl about in fleeting notes taking this to yet a higher plane of pleasure.  Seed grown

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.

Lilium mackliniae - Robust form Lilium mackliniae - Robust form

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.

Lilium mackliniae NAPE 049 Lilium mackliniae NAPE 049

Dainty yet durable species collected by Sue on Mt Saramati which straddles the border of Myanmar and Nagaland.  The only lily capsule found on the trip and it proved to be a distinct variant likely to merit subspecific status. Small white flowers.  Sue is now a footnote in botanical history.

Lilium mackliniae x mackliniae NAPE 049 - Saramati Form Lilium mackliniae x mackliniae NAPE 049 - Saramati Form

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

Lilium pardalinum ssp. pardalinum Lilium pardalinum ssp. pardalinum

California native Lily from a Ron Ratko seed collection.  This has the small but glorious orange Turk's Cap flowers with orange recurved petals darkly spotted.  Haven't met a West Coast Lily yet that hasn't completely bewitched us and this is no exception.  This one increases nicely via rhizomatous bulbs and we've grown this for over 20 years.

Lilium taliense CGG 14071 Lilium taliense CGG 14071

Beautiful species from one of our collections in the mountains of Asia.  Stately and refined on strong upright 4'-6' stems topped in creamy flowers whose recurved tepals are suffused in freshly churned butter yellow.  These vary by clone and can be liberally speckled in fine maroon spots or these can be nearly absent.  Kelly is a Libra and can't decide which he likes more while Sue is a Taurus and said we are going to sell a few while that Libra brain makes up its mind.

If you have the spot for this plant then there is no reason to not to grow this unless you simply don't do red because this is a smoldering fountain of saturated pigmentation celebrating the red spectrum.  Red foliage and bright red flowers on 3'-4' stems in late summer.  Moist and rich.
