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.

Lobelia montana PMD Lobelia montana PMD

A collection by Philip MacDougall from Taiwan of this predominantly Chinese species.  The pale flowers spring from the leaf axils of the arching stems and are just touched in pink and purple and will never be accoladed as showy but are charming.  The reddish fruit are quite nice and dangle as showy little orbs.  We have come to quite enjoy it's understated charms.

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.

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 terminalis - variegated MD15-91 Pachysandra teminalis MD 1591

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

Parochetus communis Parochetus communis

I've always loved this plant which rapidly makes a groundcover of the coolest maroon banded clover leaves interspersed with wildly improbable blue Pea flowers.  I was chuffed to bits to see this on the slopes of Mt Japvo in Nagaland in 2003.  Protect in hard freeeeeezes.  Brrrrr.

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.

Patrinia triloba 'F. S. Blushing Lace' Patrinia triloba 'Free Spirit Blushing Lace'

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 'Bev Jensen' Penstemon 'Bev Jensen'

Bev Jensen must be one serious hottie with a casual morality to have this Penstemon named after her.  Large seductive come-hither pink flowers with a brush of white on the belly and flaring widely open in the most welcoming manner.  Many weeks of bloom.  Don't overwater and little or no fertilizer.

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 'Pershore Pink Necklace' Penstemon 'Pershore Pink Necklace'

Like many of the hybrid herbaceous Penstemons, this is a blooming fool with big Foxglove-like pink flowers that have a showy white throat with a distinct darker necklace of demarcation between the white and the pink.  It's the little things that pique our interest.  Grow this lean with little or no fertilizer.

Penstemon 'Raven' Penstemon 'Raven'

Serious flower production that goes on summer into fall without it ever saying 'Nevermore".  Big claret foxglove-like trumpets with a white eye beckon, entice and envelop a variety of bees in their deep-throated velvety embrace.  (I had to step away from writing this for just a minute - never wanted to be a bee so badly before)  Blooms all summer, really.

This easy to grow hybrid penstemon is beautiful both in bud, with it vibrant pink tip, and open, with the pink lip transitioning to a white throat.  It flowers from mid summer until late fall, and responds well to dead heading.  It will last for many years in the garden.  And the deer ignore it.

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 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 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.

Here is a shot of color for your garden with this yellow-foliaged Mock Orange.  Bright yellow new leaves which turn chartreuse-green as they mature makes this shrub impossible to ignore.

Philadelphus madrensis Philadelphus madrensis

This plant smells so good in flower that it should be illegal or barring that, taxable.  This could help with budget shortfalls because it is frankly addictive.  One sniff and the response is "Ooh!  Do you have this for sale?"  Southwest native remarkable hardy with grape koolaid fragrant white  flowers in masses.

Our collection from Bitahai in Yunnan where it was growing in a shaded broad ravine with a small stream meandering through and in association with Actaea (Cimicifuga) foetidus, Malus sp. and oddly for such a moist area, Potentilla fruticosa which was on a bit of a raised shoulder in the sun.  Soft yellow flowers.

Pittosporum sp. H2MD 062 Pittosporum sp. H2MD 062

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  Unidentified species of a seriously good Asian Pittosporum.  This was an attention-grabber being essentially a small 15' tree with large - for a Pittosporum - evergreen leaves.  What really stopped us was the large green seed capsules like small figs.  These split open when mature to reveal showy orange seeds.  Young seed-grown plants.

Platycarya strobilacea MD15-01 Platycarya strobilacea MD15-01

Curious and uncommon walnut relative from our Asian seed collection where we found this as part of the rich mixture of trees and shrubs on steep mountain flanks. Pinnate leaves harkening to the family Juglandaceae but instead of nuts in a hard shell, this has nutlets in vertical ornamental cones which persist all winter.  Too cool for school!

Plectranthus effusus var. longitubus (syn. Rabdosia, then Isodon) Plectranthus effusus var. longitubus (syn. Rabdosia, then Isodon)

Think of this as a woodland Salvia which blooms in the Fall.  This Japanese jewel brings an unexpected and welcome shot of color to the shade garden in Fall with airy panicles to 3 or 4 feet holding zillions of small tubular purple-blue flowers.  Something nice to look if you are overloaded on the reds-oranges-yellows classic colors.
