Tanakaea radicans Tanakaea radicans

Japanese Foam Flower.  Uncommon evergreen groundcover which thrives in shaded, moist acid conditions and is uncommonly well suited to clothing a fallen mossy log or rock as it spreads by stolons like a restrained strawberry.  Late spring/early summer small white sprays of flowers.   Gotta love these monotypic Saxifragales genera!

Meconopsis 'Lingholm' Himalayan Blue Poppy Meconopsis 'Lingholm' - Himalayan Blue Poppy

One of the best of the Blue Poppies and certainly one of the most reliably perennial.  This large flowers of good medium blue.  This appreciates a partly sunny to bright dappled shaded position with good loose organic soil that drains yet doesn't dry out.  A percentage does die after blooming so save seed to be safe!

Kniphofia 'First Sunrise' PP16036 Kniphofia 'First Sunrise' PP16036

This Poker has consistently drawn covetous inquiries from visitors to the garden here and for some years we have said "It is nice, isn't it?  Wish we had some to offer you."  Well, we finally caught on and now have some beauts and are making up for lost time.  Rich Creamsicle Pokers of a clear and evenly uniform soft orange.

Corydalis - Far Reaches Select Corydalis - Far Reaches Select

A chance seedling in our gardens with some affinity to "Purple Leaf' and other clones out of England. The similarities are such that we were reluctant to clutter the field with another named Corydalis but it is good enough to share so an "unofficial" descriptive is our solution. Purplish new leaves and scented lavender-blue flowers,

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.

Crocosmia 'Prometheus' Crocosmia 'Prometheus'

The flowers on this oddly hard to obtain Davison cultivar from 1904 are indeed fit for the gods.  Long petals on very large shapely deep orange flowers open widely to best show off the red ring in the center. This is a tall grower between 3' and 4' tall and despite being a centenarian, stills rocks the house.

Crocosmia 'Castle Ward Late' Crocosmia 'Castle Ward Late'

One of the truly elegant cultivars and one that will be the toast of the garden.  Tall stems with fingers of flowers heldout like a ladies hand extended to be kissed.  Refined petals nicely spaced reeks of breeding and affluence yet is always up to knocking back a cold brew ot two.

Crocosmia 'Golden Fleece' Crocosmia 'Golden Fleece'

This has yellow flowers as clean and pure as butter churned by hand by a virtuous and chaste milkmaid on a farm set in the Alps where the cows while away the summer days grazing in meadows alight with wildflowers and the unhurried soft clank of an unseen cowbell becomes music impossible to improve upon.

Crocosmia 'Goldfinch' Crocosmia 'Goldfinch'

This is not commonly grown and only a handful of nurseries in the UK offer this 1918 George Henley introduction and you would be hard-pressed to find anyone in the US. Small flowers touched red on the outside of the tepals and fusing into yellow on the inside presenting a very pleasing two-toned effect.

Syneilesis x hybrida Syneilesis x hybrida

A hybrid between two fab foliage species, Syneilesis palmata and S. aconitifolia.  We have Diana Reeck of Collector's Nursery to thank for these goodies.  Silken silver conical new growth unfurling to deeply dissected round leaves - nothing like it!  Flowers are an afterthought.

Hacquetia epipactis Hacquetia epipactis

There ain't nuthin' like this.  Early spring yellow stars followed by leathery lobed green leaves in a dense low mound.  It is the early yellow flowers that steal the show in part because they have so little competition and in part because they are so unique.

Disporum longistylum 'Green Giant' Disporum longistylum 'Green Giant'

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.

Crocosmia 'Debutante' Crocosmia 'Debutante'

As neither of us were lucky enough to be debutantes ourselves, growing this 'Debutante' is ample solace. The flowers are small but tend to face upwards opening orange but fading rapidly to a soft pink in the interior which is accented by a yellow eye while the exterior retains a deeper orange-red coloring. To 30" of tidy habit with conservative values until it blooms

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.

Tricyrtis latifolia Tricyrtis latifolia ex SICH 1735

A Toadlily from a UBC collection in Sichuan which is a superior foliage plant with bold black mottlings especially vivid on the new growth.  In bright shade to part sun this has strong vertical stems which have late summer buff to amber-brown flowers.  This is pretty neat.

Tigridia van-houttei Tigridia van-houttei

We like so totally rock.  Did you ever expect a little nursery in Port Townsend to offer this choice Tigridia species from arid Mexico?   Ashy gray, purpley black and burnished buff combined in a mind-twisting combo of fly-wing veination and reptilian patterns.

Crocosmia 'His Majesty' Crocosmia 'His Majesty'

Aptly named, a Crocosmia of truly majestic proportions and grandeur of flower.  Arguably the finest large-flowered cultivar in the world, this indeed has the largest flowers among the 150 or so varieties we grow,  Wide open rich orange yellow faces with dark red-orange backs on 40" stems.  It rules.

Ourisia coccinea Ourisia coccinea

A rare member of the Scrophulariaceae from the Chilean Andes.  This has done great in our shade garden where the shade, moist but well drained soil and tasty helpings of dairy manure really help.  Evergreen leaves except if real cold and red tubular flowers on up to 18" stems in early summer.

Iris cristata 'Tennessee White' Iris cristata 'Tennessee White'

There seems to be no end to groups of plants we are mad about and Iris cristata easily makes the cut.  Typically flowers in shades of blue, this is a far less common white selection.  Perfect little white Iris flowers with the petals touched by a yellow crest.  Deciduous small-scale groundcover.

Polygonatum odoratum 'Flore Pleno' Polygonatum odoratum 'Flore Pleno'

Double Flowered Solomon's Seal.  Hard to come by and desireable double form of this excellent garden plant.  The extra petals looks like a little green rose when lift one of the dangling white bells and peer inside.  It is one of those little surprises that makes the garden so fun.

Ajuga incisa 'Bikun' Ajuga incisa 'Bikun'

Frosted Jade Ajuga.  Hard to believe that this is an Ajuga but it is true.  This choice selection has fantastic foliage and very good dark cobalt flowers.  Not a spreader - this makes a clump with 16" tall stems.  Challenges all of your comfy notions about Ajuga but in a good way.  Great in our shade garden.

Erythronium oregonum Erythronium oregonum

Nice native bulb surprisingly seldom available.  Mottled leaves and multiple pale yellow to creamy yellow flowers in multiples hang above the foliage.  Very good naturalizer from seed and one of the most requested plants in our shade garden.

Uvularia sessilifolia 'Albomarginata' Uvularia sessilifolia 'Albomarginata'

One of the little gems of the woodland is this scarcely encountered selection which we have planted under our Disporum 'Night Heron' in our shade garden.  A gentle infiltrator wending amongst plants of stouter stature, this carries a joyous light in its white edged leaves and pale bell flowers.

Crocosmia 'Miss Scarlet' Crocosmia 'Miss Scarlet' PPAF

We believe Rhett, this Crocosmia is no lady.  Really, are you looking for some refined creature when you buy a Crocosmia?  I think not - it's hussies, hotties, tramps and trollops that get's it done in the garden.  This has big heads of bright red flowers more flared than Lucifer.

Crocosmia 'Hellfire' Crocosmia 'Hellfire'

If this is what you get for sinning then I can hardly wait!  New selection from the UK that has to be Lucifer's love child.  This is much better than that old devil with dark sooty stems holding deeper blood red flowers with a wider flared corolla. So bad it's good.  Burn, baby burn!

Hesperantha coccinea 'Salmon Star' Hesperantha coccinea 'Salmon Star'

A newer introduction of the former Schizostylis from our friend Urs Baltensperger of Edelweiss Perennials.  This has bright pink flowers and not surprisingly is a good grower with an extended bloom period.  These do spread so give it a bit of room.  Easy to control its spread as most of your friends will want a piece.

x Mahoberberis miethkeana x Mahoberberis miethkeana

This was a rogue seedling in a batch of Mahonia aquifolium seedlings at Miethke Nursery in Tacoma back in the 50's and thought to be a chance hybrid with a Berberis (Barberry).  All things old are new again and we're pleased to offer this scarcity.

Maianthemum fuscum Maianthemum fuscum

If Thomas Hardy had written a book based on this plant, he would have tiltled it "Fusca the Obscure".  Or Poe "Descent into the Plant Maelstrom".  BIO -Botanical Interest Only.  If you buy this we're doing an intervention on you and get you into the Plant 12-Step Program.  You need help.

Cotula lineariloba Cotula lineariloba

Great little frothy mound of silver foliage that deserves a place in the plant petting zoo.   The yellow button-like flowers dance on wiry stems in late spring and early summer.  Too cute. On the dry side.  Thanks to David Mason and Susie Grimm of Hedgerows Nursery for sharing it with us.
