Senecio pulcher Senecio pulcher

Rare and choice goody that Jim Fox brought to us from England.  Surprisingly hardy with screaming hot bright fuchsia pink daisies in summer.  Don't plant it with Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff' like we did - a memorable combo for its garish bad taste.  Winter dormant.

Fuchsia 'Hawkshead' Fuchsia 'Hawkshead'

This hardy bush Fuchsia is quite a pleasing addition to the garden where it performs admirably in a sunny spot with lots of narrow hanging white flowers which are touched in faintest green on the tepal tips.  Recent winters have put a whupping on reliably hardy plants so if it is going to turn nasty, mulch the base and trunk well.  Easy and gratifying.

Roscoea cautleyoides Roscoea cautleyoides

One of our favorite Roscoeas (we admittedly love the one we are with at the moment when it comes to these) which distinguishes itself by a haughty erectness (only achieved a great cost at expensive finishing schools) in apparent conflict with the "Do Me Now!" exotic yellow flowers.

Iris ruthenica 'Nana' Iris ruthenica 'Nana'

This is a choice little dwarf species from China of which we never have enough.  Perfect lavender-blue flowers just a few inches high over densly clumping short foliage.  This is one tough baby Iris as Sue brought this out from her garden in northern Vermont.  Deciduous.

Iris sibirica 'Devil's Dream' Iris sibirica 'Devil's Dream'

Rich purple flowers of a color more suited to the dreams of the Pope than the Devil unless of course the Devil is dreaming of someday wearing those rich purple robes of the Pope in which case it is appropriately named.  Just speculation.  Great color anyway.

Dierama Hybrids Dierama Hybrids

So notoriously promiscuous as to make a rabbit blush, these evergreen bulbous Iris family members are all about the summer of love. Embracing any bee that taps on its window bringing pollen from any nearby floozy flower, this exhibits a Bacchanalian moral turpitude that is either damned or extolled.  These are young seed-grown plants from one of our darkest Dierama so at worst, this will still be pretty good.

Begonia sp. DM 16014 Begonia sp. DM 16014

A Hinkley collection of this rhizomatous Begonia from 9500' in the far eastern Himalaya. Attractive foliage with red hues and veins underleaf and we presume, pink flowers. Hardiness is unknown but we would mulch it well in zone 8 gardens. Ideally, overwinter frost-free until large enough to divide off a piece for trial outside in your garden. This would be a trial lamb.

Gentiana paradoxa Gentiana paradoxa

A tough perennial from the southern Caucasus which has steadfastly refused to die despite some of our unintentional best efforts. This will, in time, make an impressive small clump of numerous upright stems to 12" or so which are tipped in late July to September with multiple blue flowers with pale whitish throats.  This is happy in limestone conditions and is happy here in neutral to moderately acid. It wants to please.

Sedum palmeri Sedum palmeri

Nice Sedum from 10000' in Mexico that has more cojones than you might think handling 10F here just fine. This has yellow flowers in late winter-spring from gray-blue rosettes on lax stems evocative of Echeveria on a stick.  Some compulsives cut back after blooming to tighten up rosettes but we go with the flow.

A unique evergreen member of the Myrtaceae family native to moist, rocky areas within alpine and subalpine regions of Australia.

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 '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 resembling an elwesii Whittall Group

Cardamine glanduligera Cardamine glanduligera

Lovely species in the group formerly placed in the genus Dentaria referring to their crinkled molar-like rhizomes.  We do enjoy the the color of the purple-pink flowers in early spring but there is a quality of texture and sheen to the leaves that makes us consistently murmur  'I like that plant" whenever we pass by it.

A jolly plant indeed introduced by Heronswood from Sichuan.  This has evergreen foliage springing from new growth that looks to be a bamboo until it leafs out.  Small creamy white flowers in early summer and blue-black fruit held well into winter.  Cut back old stems in spring.  Feed me.  Water me.

Large rich pink-lavender flowers with an expressive fringed lip invites you to explore the voluptuous inner hollows colored sensuously in orange and yellow. Why silk pajamas, candles and Bolero just popped into mind is curious........and not a bad idea.

Polylepis lanata BK 10511.10 Polylepis lanata BK 10511.10

High elevation Bolivian evergreen pinnate-leaved tree in the Rose family whose gorgeous irregular shape and exceptional exfoliating bark gives us fever dreams. Flowers are apetalous nothings but given its abundance of attributes, expecting showy petals is akin to disappointment in the physical shortcomings of the Duke in The Bridgertons.

No ignoring this Primrose in flower! Some Primula are wee subtle things with no greater effect than the sound of a distant flute teasing the edge of hearing.
