Barnardia japonica syn. Scilla scillioides Barnardia japonica syn. Scilla scillioides

Fricking taxonomists - we were so happy with Scilla scillioides.  Choice and seldom ofered Chines/Japan/Korean bulb that flowers in late summer with 10"-15" stems of Scilla-like pinkish-lavender flowers without the distraction of its grassy leaves.  Pretty cool and easy naturalizer that we can finally offer.

A sure-to-be favorite is this hybrid from Denver's Kelly Grummons who crossed or perhaps found a bee seedling between Salvia darcyi and S. microphylla. This 2015 Plant Select introduction wowed us when we saw it in Denver in 2014. Blood-red flowers on 3'-4' stems from late June to October and hardy to zone 5. Grummons - you rule, dude!

Salvia of the Gods.  A small padding kneeling bench is handy to have in front of this plant to make it easier for garden visitors as they spontaneously fall to their knees.  We forgive its need to be grown frost-free because the flowers rule.  Immense red pendulous flowers from the huge calyces.  Best not in wind.

Salvia macrophylla x sagittata Salvia macrophylla x sagittata

We got our plant from Stephen F. Austin Arboretum in Texas and while it is frost sensitive, the good display of blue flowers in late summer and fall makes this worth overwintering in the sunroom or cool greenhouse as it is perennial and such overwintered plants will start struttin' its flowers earlier in the summer with that typical Texan swagger.

Rocky Mountain Elderberry. A black-fruited variant of our native red-fruited Elderberry.

Santolina chamaecyparissus 'Small-ness' Santolina chamaecyparissus 'Small-ness'

Compact little plant that lends itself to formal edging as it is naturally a very tight, small rounded dome of small green leaves that gets its groove on with a shameless display of yellow button flowers.  We will never be confused with formal and in keeping, our plant is immensely happy in our free-form dry garden.  Just a quick shearing of the spent flowers and good to go.  Deer proof.
