A plant of refinement to be sure. One that is appreciated and admired by the higher echelons of gardening. A collector's plant. Different ways of saying that this is not a flamboyant show-stopper but a tasteful blend of delicate texture and airy soft pink flowers that helps make it all work.
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 pink with dark spots with recurved petals in the classic "Turk's Cap" style. We love it.
Our collection of this distinctive viningMonkshood from the wooded slopes of Longshou in Sichuan. We think this is quite superior to other color forms of this rare species and have given it the name 'Monk Gone Wild' because it is a pretty crazy color for a Monkshood plus this monk managed to remain technically celibate yet still have lots of children via stem bulbils.

This is a columbine that simply appeared in the garden as such is wont to do. The new foliage is a bright golden yellow in sun and a vivid chartreuse in shade. The raspberry colored flowers are better than we had hoped and is likely an iteration of 'Woodside Gold' although how it came to be here is a mystery.
More art than flower and more flower than one's soul can bear. Almost anyway, as each spring we gasp back to awareness from the horticultural fugue state that these flowers send us to and while we don't know where we've been or what we've done, we do know that it was amazing. Narrow black-red petals evoke a dark and sinuous eroticism that tests your limits.
This Chinese woodland Peony is one of the few species blooming and thriving in full shade as well as sun. Nicely dissected ferny foliage and slightly nodding single pink flowers 2-3 per stem makes this distinctively beautiful. We had a rare trip in the spring to Yunnan and Sichuan in 2006 to see plants in flower and this was one of the standouts. .
Second generation plants from Steve Hootman's collection from Sichuan China and first time recorded in that province. Statuesque tall Lilies with scented big white trumpets colored outside in puce. Puce? That's never gonna sell. Stained outside in a soft Pinot Noir. Really nice plants.
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.
Classic spring epehemeral of the eastern woodlands with ferny foliage in early spring and white flowers in March. This will go dormant by late spring and is an excellent little plant to grow on top of later growing shade loving lily species or Arisaemas so that you get double duty out of the same planting spot.
