Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Edge of Night' Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Edge of Night'

A subtle sport of the Black Mondo Grass 'Nigrescens' with the thinnest edge of white along one side of the leaf. This was introduced by Collector's Nursery and named by the late clever wordsmith Bill Jansen who was one of the owners.  Bill had a gift for naming plants as many of you conifer collectors well know.

Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Kokuryu'  syn. 'Nigrescens' Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Kokuryu' syn. 'Nigrescens'

Black Mondo Grass. One of the classiest ornamentals and maybe the best for providing color and textural contrast, this can find a home in any garden. Fairly drought tolerant but thriving in more moist situations, this has evergreen (or everblack) leaves with pink flowers and shiny black pearl seeds.  The cultivar names 'Nigrescens', 'Niger', and 'Black Dragon' have been very recently subsumed into 'Kokuryu'.

Ophiopogon sp. Ophiopogon sp.

Our collection from Yunnan, China of this evergreen member of the Asparagaceae.  We collected seed of this back in 1997 on a partly shaded slope of tumbled mossy boulders where it grew under the tree peony, Paeonia delavayi.  This has small white flowers followed by glossy blue-black fruit.  Totally care-free and these are from division.

Ophiopogon sp. CDHM 14679 Ophiopogon sp. CDHM 14679

Mondo Grass. Our collection from Asia.  This was shorter-growing than the other species we observed in the area and the leaves were comparatively glossier. The autumn blue fruit was oval shaped and we could only hope the flowers would be good. Our hopes were not misplaced as the white flowers are large for an Ophiopogon and different than our other collections.  This is a dense carpeter rather than a clumper.

Ophiopogon sp. cf. umbraticola H2MD063 Ophiopogon sp. cf. umbraticola H2MD063

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  Keying Ophiopogon requires a keener taxonomic mind than we possess plus a bottle of sippin' whiskey within easy reach as it is a frustrating endeavor.  This is a little gem forming loose open tussocks of fine bladed grassy green leaves which provides excellent viewing of the comparatively large brilliant blue fruit.

Ophiopogon sp. CGG 14041 Ophiopogon sp. CGG 14041

Our collection from Guizhou in an area famed for its vast diversity and density of Rhododendron species.  It was really quite staggering to see even in the fall when all was out of flower.  This little Mondo Grass in the wild had narrow evergreen leaves to 6" with 8" flower stems bearing up to 7 glossy blue-black fruits.

2011 collection of this very attractive species from Dragon's Tooth in Lao Cai, Vietnam at 1700 meters. This rare Mondo Grass makes good evergreen clumps with narrow arching leaves up to 20" long with showy lavender flowers with darker flecks. Any plant from a place called Dragon's Tooth should be pretty tough as well as bringing a bit of magic to your garden.

Ophiopogon sp. NV 095 Ophiopogon sp. NV 095

Our Asian collection of yet another Ophiopogon or Mondo Grass.  Through the Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy, we are very keen on acquiring documented collections of this complex and taxonomically challenging genus as such collections are needed to get the genus properly sorted. Narrow grassy leaves to 15" and purplish fruit.  Flowers unknown.  A portion of the proceeds goes to the Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.

Ophiopogon sp. NV 077 Ophiopogon/Liriope sp. NV 077

A wild collection introduced by Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy hoping to shine some light into the taxonomic murkiness that is these genera.  Perhaps our unflinching ambiguity in assigning it to two possible genera is an indication.  From a high elevation within its range, this should have good hardiness.  Evergreen leaves 18" long by 1/2" wide with blue fruit.  Flowers unknown. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.

Oreocharis auricula CGG 14083 Oreocharis auricula CGG 14083

This is from seed collected in 2010 at 3500' from cliffs on the lower slopes of Fanjingshan in Guizhou.  What fun it was to see this gesneriad in the wild!  Purplish flowers are held on short 4" stems and this is a must-have if you fancy Afican Violets and Streptocarpus.  Frost-free and good drainage.

Origanum 'Kent Beauty' Origanum 'Kent Beauty'

Fabulous hybrid ornamental Origano (O. rotundifolium x O. scabrum) which is both heat and drought tolerant and a perfect choice for the sunny rock garden or top edge of rockery wall.  This really does need sharp drainage to perform its best.  In the Midwest, it is used as an annual in window boxes.  Light pink flowers all summer long.

Osmanthus decorus Osmanthus decorus

Tough and adaptable evergreen shrub to 6' or a little more that is thankfully deer resistant.  It is good thing being in the Olive family (Oleaceae) as deer hate olives.  The deer in Port Townsend are approaching biblical locust proportions and no doubt there will soon be "wildlife" tours in town.  Very fragrant white flowers are a beacon of hope in the face of relentless herbivory.

Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime'

Fragrant Princess False Holly or so the translation goes.  You cannot help but like this diminutive version with its deep green miniature hollyesque leaves and its scented typical Osmanthus-sized white flowers.  This grows ridiculously slow and should you live long enough, plan on having a garden party when your aged Fragrant Princess reaches 3 feet tall.  On second thought, better plan on that party when she reaches 2 feet.

Osmanthus suavis HWJCM 129 Osmanthus suavis HWJCM 129

Sweet Olive. A collection by Wynn-Jones and Hinkley from the Milke Danda in eastern Nepal. This has similar, fragrant white flowers to the more common Osmanthus delavayi and shares the same blue-purple olive-shaped fruit.  A good evergreen shrub that the deer shun and will be a durable landscape plant for zones 8-9 where aside from the fragrance, it is good for screening.

Osmanthus x fortunei Osmanthus x fortunei

This evergreen large shrub is a hybrid of O. fragrans x O. heterophyllus and is usefully for screening as it will be very dense. The fall white flowers although small, bunch up in packs, and perfume the air with a scent of jasmine. That should be enough right there but to pile on just a bit, very deer resistant and tolerant of periods of drought. Ok, now that is enough.

Osmunda regalis var. spectabilis Osmunda regalis var. spectabilis

North American Royal Fern.  Native to the eastern half of North America, this deciduous fern can develop a short but substantial trunk with age that is quite intriguing in the garden.  Nice pinnate fronds can reach 3 feet in length and the spore clusters add some pizzazz.  This can take very wet soils which makes a great bog or pond edge plant and the wetter it is, the more sun it can handle but will also do well in deep shade.  Flora of North America recognizes this variety as being distinct from the European Osmunda regalis while some authorities regard this as simply O. regalis while others have elevated it to specific status as Osmunda spectabilis based on recent molecular work. Just some frondly disagreements.
