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.

Pachysandra terminalis - variegated MD15-91 Pachysandra teminalis MD 15-91

This well-known groundcover hails from a narrow mountain valley in Chongqing we hiked to in the rain along a narrow trail among a rich a variety of trees and large Rhododendron sutchuenense where this lolled about in the understory floor mingling with tiny Hepatica henryi, Asarum, Ophiopogon Calanthe and a curious white-flowered Sanicula.  Evergreen leaves and spreading rhizomes makes a dense carpet.  Familiar species to the point of disdain, this stands above the rabble with its Botanical Roadshow provenance.  At day's end, the scorched potatoes pulled from the coals

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.

Ok, this is delightful!  A small evergreen subshrub which has these shiny little leaves on mahogany stems with sprays of lavender-blue with a distinctive magenta ring enclosing a white eye.  This happily flowers from June until frost and shearing off the spent flowers encourages continued bloom. This makes a 10"x24" billow of foliage and flower in sun to part sun.

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 quadrifolia Paris quadrifolia

A European Trillium relative that forms small colonies in time by creeping rhizomes. Four-parted leaves and greenish flowers that look like an artistic, sculptural rendition influenced by recreational doses of psilocybin.  These later give way to a black knob of seeds which are attractive in their own right. Our patch in our shade garden has increased to about 4' across and once it hits 10', we will feel like we have enough.

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.

Parthenocissus semicordata HeHeHe 243 Parthenocissus semicordata HeHeHe 243

A collection by Goteborg BG from a hardier area of this kin to Boston ivy.  Grows much the same way climbing into trees or self-adhering to the brick walls of that historic manor house where you live and garden in your fever dreams after falling asleep perusing seed catalogs in the dark of winter.  Great fall color.

Penstemon 'Midnight' Penstemon 'Midnight'

A time-tested durable perennial for the garden which boasts deep purple flowers thatt continue into fall if dead-headed.  If you can't be bothered to dead-head, then you will just have to content yourself with 2 months of outrageous color in early summer on a plant which will get to 3' by 3'.

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 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.

Penstemon whippleanus Penstemon whippleanus

Whipple's Penstemon.  Broadly distributed on both sides of the Rockies down the US, this should be more widely available.  Most commonly with clustered down-turned trumpets of a rich burgundy to purple, different population can also be white or lavender.  Very pleasing in all of its forms, this is a good garden plant taking more moisture than a lot of the rock garden Penstemons.

Petrophytum caespitosum Petrophytum caespitosum

Grown from seed we collected from plants growing on a sheer rock face in Colorado.  This population is known for its color variations from the usual whitish theme and our young plants have yet to flower so we are twitchy with anticipation.  We first saw this species growing among the ancient Bristlecone Pines in the White Mts - that day was magic!  Grows in rock cracks/crevices or stony open ground in dry situations.  Evergreen mat-former.
