Bistorta amplexicaulis 'Rosea' (syn. Persicaria) Bistorta amplexicaulis 'Rosea' (syn. Persicaria)

A Great Plant Pick, and rightly so because this performs in the garden.  Thin spikes of soft pink flowers are held nicely upright, more so than many other cultivars and pair wonderfully with the bold green foliage to create a ethereal pinkish floral haze above the bulwark of green.  Not weedy or aggressive, this is good.

Persicaria emodi MD97 Bistorta emodi MD97 (syn. Persicaria)

Our collection from 1997 of this little non-aggressive groundcover Persicaria we previously offered as P. vaccinifolia. Thin tapers of red flowers and good flame colored foliage in fall. We found this growing on top of a massive mossy boulder near a small stream as it flowed from a narrow canyon in the cliffs of the Cangshan at 10,000'.

Lepisorus cf. macrosphaerus MD 15-09 Lepisorus cf. macrosphaerus MD 15-09

Fern fans we are, fern experts we are not, but we continue to chip away at the imposing taxonomic massif of Pteridphyta in hopes of becoming somewhat conversational in Fern. Currently, we can ask the equivalent of where the restroom is and order beer when talking Asian ferns. This is a creeping fern with long, thin rhizomes ideally suited for weaving through shallow moss on shaded rock faces with small orbicular-ovate evergreen leaves.

Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21 Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  This is an interesting fern of which we have just a few nice divisions.  This grows as an epiphyte on tree trunks which is typical for the genus and was found at the high point in the mountain range so should have some hardiness. The distinctive large rounded paired sori on the backs of the leaves also fit the genus.

Pachyphragma macrophyllum Pachyphragma macrophyllum

Kind of a rocking plant in that it really requires nothing from you.  We have it in a drier spot in our shade garden and it just trucks along looking good and putting on nice white flowers for months on end.  Horrible winter weather comes and it doesn't care - just stays evergreen.  We've gotten rather attached to it and you will as well.  One of Beth Chatto's 100 favorites.

Pachysandra procumbens 'Little's Pixie Dragon' Pachysandra procumbens 'Little's Pixie Dragon'

A selection from Virginia with leaves more toothed than usual and nicely mottled.  We notice that the flowers are densely bunched in upright pale candles,  This is a much more desirable species than the industrial carpeter P. terminalis and very well behaved.  Do call us if it gets out of hand and we will be right over, spade at the ready!

Pachysandra procumbens 'Little's Pixie Forest' Pachysandra procumbens 'Little's Pixie Forest'

This is a good species of Pachysandra that is well-mannered and earns a place in collector's shade gardens. We have a number of clones from Piping Tree Gardens and Nursery on the east coast who collected and named a few forms which show some subtle variations with this being one. Candles of white flowers in mid to late spring.  Just a few chunky 1 gallon plants.

One of the finest of the species Peonies, this Mediterranean goody is among the first to bloom in spring.  Fabulous new growth and very showy single pink flowers.  If you want scent, get a hybrid.  If you want class, here you go.  This is a stunning and very good plant.  Good well drained soil.

Paeonia delavayi Paeonia delavayi

A woody species peony we first saw in Yunnan in 1997 growing in the open woodland surrounding the alluvial plain of the Ganghoba valley with Dipelta, Rodgersia and Arisaema.  This will get 4'-6' tall with nicely dissected foliage and the small but intense flowers on these young, seed-grown plants will likely be red although orange is possible as we have both and bees will be bees.

Paeonia tenuifolia Paeonia tenuifolia

Fernleaf Peony.  Choice species from the Russian steppe - easy to infer that it is extremely hardy!  Leaves divided into fine grassy segments which would earn it accolades for texture but add in the small single red flowers and you will be toasting this with shots of Stoli.  Big bare root 5-7 bud divisions.

Paeonia veitchii Paeonia veitchii

Parasenecio delphiniifolius 'Sanshoku' Parasenecio delphiniifolius 'Sanshoku' (syn. Cacalia)

This variegated Japanese selection used to be in the genus Cacalia.   Broad foliage irregularly and finely streaked and spattered in cream like a monochromatic misting by Jackson Pollock on a green canvas.  This will get to up to 30" with upright stems clad in this conversational foliage.  Forgettable flowers.  We've grown this in light shade to good effect and hardy to zone 4.

Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis

One of the stars in our shade garden is this Chinese Trillium relative.  These are seedlings from our garden plants which are marvels of vegetative increase.  The 3 bulbs we planted have increased to over 50 stems with elegant flowers and showy orange fruit.  Hope the kids learned something.

Paris thibetica DJHC 828 Paris thibetica DJHC 828

A Hinkley collection of this very collectible Trillium relative from China.  The 7-12 narrow leaves are arranged like spokes on a wheel and have short deep purple petioles.  The flowers are the typical Paris expression of atypical nonconformity with lots of green and spidery filaments.  We have not keyed this yet to verify the name but it is quite rhizomatous and is not of the widespread polyphylla clan.  Divisions.

A selection of this Japanese native from our friends at the wonderful Free Spirit nursery just across the border from us in British Columbia.  The whole place is saturated with taste and sensibility which is tempered by whimsy.  This has a salmon tinge to the new growth of incised maple-like leaves to 8"-10" tall.  Yellow flowers in May-June on this mat-former.

Penstemon albertinus Penstemon albertinus

A native of dry, rocky slopes in the northern Rockies. Glossy evergreen leaves are complemented by spikes of light blue to violet flowers in mid-summer. Leaves will sometimes take on a nice purple coloration in winter. Appreciates a lean well-drained soil in a sunny location so rock gardens or dry gravel gardens are great.

Penstemon barrettiae Penstemon barrettiae

Let's talk drought tolerance. This is one step up from cactus. We always marvel at this growing out of cracks in sheer basalt cliffs on the dry Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge and looking oh so good despite the most rigorous of conditions. Great for the rock garden. Good drainage.  Purple-pink flowers on this evergreen subshrub.

Penstemon cardinalis  var. regalis Penstemon cardinalis var. regalis

A wild collection from 4450' in Eddy County New Mexico. With stems to 3', the tubular red flowers rank one side of the stem looking very refined. An unspoken secret of the very refined is their dense scruff of golden, decidedly pubic hairs just inside the throat. These catch and transfer pollen while keeping the flower's naughty bits hot, steamy and ready.

Penstemon pinifolius 'Sunset Glow' Penstemon pinifolius 'Sunset Glow'

A Plant Select release out of Colorado, this is a vigorous and floriferous selection of the species getting 12"-18" tall and wider. This has myriad tubular, orange flowers that are hummingbird crack which flower for many weeks in summer to early fall. Low water needs, don't kill it with the kindness of rich compost. Another positive is that deer - ours anyway - don't like Penstemon.

Penstemon procerus var. formosus Penstemon procerus var. formosus

This occurs east of the Cascades and in CA and NV at high elevations and in Sue's opinion is the best form of Penstemon procerus.  Small tight ground-hugging mats of fleshy succulent green leaves are backing for the short dark blue flowers.  Consummate rock garden plant.

Penstemon rupicola Penstemon rupicola - Gifford Pinchot form

Seed-grown from a collection in the Indian Heaven area of Gifford Pinchot National Forest in the southern Cascade Mts of Washington.  Surely one of our favorite Penstemon, this has glaucous, rounded leaves on creeping mats with pink flowers that just lovely.  This requires a rock garden, trough or crevice garden as it needs a lean and gritty, mineral soil with excellent drainage.

Penstemon species - Mexico Penstemon species - Mexico

A collection from the hills above Oaxaca by plantsman Chen Hao. A smaller upright shrubby species with very fine textured thin leaves and spires of small tubular pink flowers custom made for hummingbirds and other nectar feeders with enviably long tongues.  This is evocative of P. kunthii except for the flower color which is paler. Something to key out this summer with chips, guac and several cold Negro Modelo.
