Aquilegia ecalcarata DW (prev. listed as Semiaquilegia adoxoides DW) Aquilegia ecalcarata DW (prev. listed as Semiaquilegia adoxoides DW)

Collected by Daniel Winkler from Tibet, we previously erroneously listed this primitive Columbine as Semiaquilegia adoxoides - thanks to Bob Nold for keeping us honest!. This spurless Columbine has dainty downturned pink-cupped flowers in late spring and early summer. Widespread in China.

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.

Nice gallon size.

Heptapleurum (syn.Schefflera) sp. NV 023 Heptapleurum (syn.Schefflera) sp. NV 023

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering. A bold plant of 12' forming part of the species-dense broad-leaf forest margins on the incredibly steep slopes of a mountain previously not visited by westerners to our knowledge. It was a long day's climb which ended in the dark with rain and wind on a bare ridge hoping the tent didn't blow away with us in it. Fortunately, after 20+ miles and 5800' feet elevation gain, sleep came easy! Broad leaves with up to 14 leaflets held on petioles touched in red. Cream flowers and black fruit on dendritic panicles. Proceeds from this goes to the FRBC.

Sanguisorba hybrids Sanguisorba hybrids

These Sanguisorba arose as self-sown seedlings from our sales area where we have had various species and selections for sale.  We are using the catch-all "hybrids" because the bees adore the pink to red conical flowers and they were visiting all of them!  Customers were always asking if we had the plant blooming under the tables - now we do.

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.
