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.

Prospero autumnale (syn. Scilla autumnalis) Prospero autumnale (syn. Scilla autumnalis)

Grown from wild collected seed in Europe, this tough but dainty in appearance bulb is valuable for flowering in the fall.  In late summer long after the thin grassy leaves have disappeared, stems to 10" bear numerous lilac-pink flowers,  Good for the rock garden or naturalizing.  We've grown it for 30 years - it's durable!

Salix candida Salix candida

An exceptionally rare and fine form from Newfoundland of this northern tier species.  It actually dips into NE Washington.  This selection just kicks butt on the typical form.  Nice spring catkins but it's the foliage!  Soft silver gray leaves on a plant wider than it is tall.  See it in our border.

Salix cf. bockii DJHC 742 Salix cf. bockii DJHC 742

Interesting willow which we like a lot from a Hinkley collection in Sichuan. An upright plant at 9' in the garden here and no idea of ultimate height but we guess small tree at most.  Very small leaves clad the stems and the thin catkins are,,,,,,well, willowy.  Keying Salix gives us a bit of a headache as the genus is just one big open marriage in the wild with hybridity very common but we will suss it out.

Salix lindleyana Salix lindleyana

Creeping Himalayan Willow or Lindley's Willow.  Use this as a small ground cover or a small spiller over a wall or container with its new growth having reddish stems and last year's stems sporting cute little catkins. Not a fan of hot climates, this is for cooler northern gardens and will be hardy to zone 4.  John Lindley would be proud.

Robust Salvia from a Hinkley collection at high elevation in Sichuan.  This is a tough perennial which will increase in width with the large leaves acting as a weed suppressing shield.  Rosy-purple flowers, at least as I remember them, are held nicely above the leaves in mid summer.  Prefers light shade to a little sun.

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.
