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.

Leontopodium alpinum - Edelweiss Leontopodium alpinum - Edelweiss

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".

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 'Silver Form' Leptospermum lanigerum 'Silver Form'

Woolly Tea Tree. This Tasmanian is one of the best silver-leafed evergreens for our area. A great cold hardy form which has sparkling 1" white flowers in early summer and aromatic foliage when bruised. Not that you are going to bruise it unless you are simply overcome by delight down the line and you find yourself giving it a bear hug which is perfectly socially acceptable.  Good drainage and not overly rich soils.  Deer find it distasteful.

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 japonicum 'Golden Angel' Leucosceptrum japonicum 'Golden Angel' - Nursery Pick Up Only

Neat selection from Japan of this fall-blooming woodlander.  Golden yellow are its hallmark in spring to mid summer after which they become a light yellow-green but still an element of light brightness in the shade.  Late in Oct/Nov, this defies conventional wisdom by producing  yellow bottlebrush flowers.  Hardy to zone 4.

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 axillaris 'Curly Red' PP17666 Leucothoe axillaris 'Curly Red' PP17666

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.

Leuzea conifera Leuzea conifera

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.

Yellow Himalayan Honeysuckle.  A species from NE India and northern Myanmar originally introduced by Frank Kingdon-Ward just over 100 years ago, this is from a more recent US National Arboretum collection.  Yellow flowers over bronzed foliage distinguishes this from the more familiar Leycesteria formosa.

Libertia 'Amazing Grace' Libertia 'Amazing Grace'

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.

Libertia cranwelliae Libertia cranwelliae

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.

Ligularia japonica 'Rising Sun' BSWJ1293 Ligularia japonica 'Rising Sun' BSWJ1293

A collection from Kyushu, Japan by the Wynn-Jones of Crug Farm.  Deeply incised palmate leaves with long finger-like lobes are visually arresting in themselves while the early to mid summer large yellow daisy flowers just piles on the eye candy.  Structure, beauty, form and function - only the most bitter cabbage would fault this for not being edible!

Lilium auratum Lilium auratum

Unbelievable that this incredible lily grows wild in the woodlands of Japan.  Obvious to see who the parent of the oriental lily hybrids is - Lilium auratum!  Huge white flowers the size of a  plate of Fugu with shades of yellowish banding and dark speckling coupled with a heady fragrance.

A collection of this very elegant species from Lao Cai, Vietnam by Peter Zale. This is closely allied to L. poilanei and the range of the two species overlap in this area. Large pendant white to creamy yellow flowers with strongly recurved tepals (petals) which shows off the vivid maroon interior blotching. Awesome bit of dramatic rareness.

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.
