Our collection from Asia of this fine medium sized tree.  The usually 3-lobed (sometimes 5) leaves are handsome indeed with the new growth often flushed with a light copper overlay.  Excellent at the woodland edge or partly shaded garden sheltered from the worst of the drying sun and wind which plagues us here.

Aconitum bulbuliferum ‘Monk Gone Wild' CDHM14523 Aconitum bulbuliferum 'Monk Gone Wild' CDHM14523

Our collection of this distinctive viningMonkshood from the wooded slopes of Longshou in Sichuan.   We think this is quite superior to other color forms of this rare species and have given it the name 'Monk Gone Wild' because it is a pretty crazy color for a Monkshood plus this monk managed to remain technically celibate yet still have lots of children via stem bulbils.

Aconitum hemsleyanum CGG14028 Aconitum hemsleyanum CGG14028

This is from our seed collection on the Chongqing-Guangxi-Guizhou expedition in 2010.  We found this on the summit of the previously unbotanized highest peak in the Wumingshan where it was clambering about on the top of the short scrub.  We were struck by the large seed pods.  Light blue flowers on this vining Monkshood.

Aconitum sp. PMD Aconitum sp. PMD

An interesting Monkshood species from a Philip MacDougall collection in Taiwan.  This has large dusky blue-purple flowers on 2'-3' stems in mid summer and is not so tall so as to require support.  This does well for us in full sun but might be even better in half sun. It has been a reliable performer and a nice change from the typical Dutch and Euro selections.

Aconitum volubile Aconitum volubile

Another climbing Monkshood species which we quite enjoy. A great deer proof perennial that each year produces twining vines to 10' or more with terminal clusters of Monkshood flowers of lavender-purple and white in late summer and fall. Good for trellises or running up into large shrubs, small trees or wire fence panels. Pretty darned easy.

Named by plant guru John Flintoff who found this as an interesting seedling growing in plantswoman Loie Benedict's garden.

Excellent little Asian Allium that is very nice with small heads of white flowers.

Tidy and of good disposition and certainly not a garden thug.

A good dark violet- pink version of this widespread Allium from our collection in southern Sichuan.  A very easy plant in the garden getting up to 20" tall and having the added bonus of being edible which might become increasingly critical the longer Trump is in office.

Allium wallichii ex China Allium wallichii ex China

A good dark flowered form of Allium wallichii from China.  Although the individual florets are fewer in number in the flower heads, the rich purple color more than compensates.  This species is eaten by the local indigenous peoples although that wild crafting is becoming less frequent as grocery stores are awfully easy.  Not difficult..

Amsonia hubrichtii Amsonia hubrichtii

Threadleaf Bluestar. Native to the Midwest, this tough perennial must seem like a transplant from California with its liberal threadlike foliage which becomes a cloud of flamboyant rich gold and bronzes in the fall echoing the tans of celebrity. Light blue flowers in clusters at the tips in early summer.

Andromeda polifolia 'Chuo Red' Andromeda polifolia 'Chuo Red'

Bog Rosemary.  A lower growing form with bronzy-green leaves but with rose-pink flowers which is a pleasant surprise.  Got an acidic moist spot with a lot of organic matter in soil?  If you do, here you go.  Basically thrives in blueberry culture.  This should be deer proof as it has some nice toxins that will discourage them.

Andromeda polifolia 'Kirigamine' Andromeda polifolia 'Kirigamine'

Bog Rosemary. This is a compact selection to just 6" tall and spreading with the gray-green needle-like leaves often taking on a red edge.  The short stems are hung with small pink bells in late spring which are enjoyed by bees.  Related to Rhododendrons and Heather, this likes a moist acidic spot in part sun.  Very hardy to zone 3.

Anemone apennina 'Albiflora' Anemone apennina 'Albiflora'

A necessary part of the woodland garden are the small European Anemones and this is one of the good ones.  Fine foliage and nice white flowers in spring on a slowly spreading rhizomatous little bulbous plant.  As you may have surmised, this is at home in the Apennines in Italy and into Croatia.

Anemone drummondii var. lithophila Anemone drummondii var. lithophila

Nice little Anemone for the rock garden - the var. lithophila is a giveaway - with white to blue-tinged lowers on 4"-10" stems. This grows in the Rockies from Idaho, Montana and Wyoming up though Canada into Alaska where it favors open rocky ridges from 6500' to 10,000' so hardiness is not in question. These are from seed and we have not flowered it yet but the internet has some lovely photos!

Anemone narcissiflora aff. NAPE collection Anemone narcissiflora aff. NAPE collection

Our collection from the summit of a remote and isolated peak near the western Myanmar border where we were the second westerners to climb this peak and the first purely botanical foray.  The first expedition was in 1958 - those birders are tougher than you might think!   This was only 10" tall in seed in the alpine meadow at over 12000' but gets nearly 3 times that here. Broad leaves and multi-flowered heads of white flowers. Rare collection from this very isolated population.

Anemone nemorosa 'Atley' Anemone nemorosa 'Atley'

A lovely form we brought home from Scotland a few years back.  This varies from the norm of mid-blue flowers by embracing the blending nature.of Impressionist pastels with its goes-with-anything non-confrontational light lavender-blue flowers in April and May.  Not surprisingly, this form is a Libra.

Anemone nemorosa 'Blue Eyes' Anemone nemorosa 'Blue Eyes'

Choice selection of the Wood Anemone with flowers densely packed with numerous small white petals which appear all white at first but as the flowers mature or awaken, a central blue eye is revealed which is quite delightful.  I go through a similar slow process every morning and tell myself that it is the same delightful end result.

Anemone nemorosa 'Bracteata' Anemone nemorosa 'Bracteata'

Wood Anemone.  This selection has funny heads of flowers where the petals have become dense clusters dissected white leafy bracts or did the bracts become dense bunches of filigreed snowflake petals?  Either way, quite a piece of floral artwork that garners ample attention.  Great for shade.

Anemone nemorosa 'Mart's Blue' Anemone nemorosa 'Mart's Blue'

Wood Anemone.  This is a good blue form with flowers darker than many of the blue selections and even though the individual flowers are a little smaller than typical, we don't care as this is such a lovely thing.  Found in the Estonian woodlands by Mart Veerus and introduced we think by Janis Ruksans.

Anemone nemorosa 'Tilo' Anemone nemorosa 'Tilo'

A nice small flowered light pink form of this necessary Anemone species which followed us home from the UK a few years back.  What is a necessary Anemone, you ask?  One which is indispensable in your shade or woodland garden and whose absence would not only be noted but commented upon and repeated, a gardening gaffe going viral.

Anemone nemorosa 'Wilks' White' Anemone nemorosa 'Wilks' White'

One of the larger flowered varieties of Wood Anemone, this has excellent white flowers which are more than enough to stand alone or perfect in a supporting understory role to larger shrubs and perennials.

Anemone obtusiloba affinity Clone A Anemone obtusiloba affinity Clone A

From a Chinese source as Anemone subpinnata, this is likely obtusiloba although there are other similar species.  This has proved very floriferous and durable over the years making a good robust clump with lots of white flowers opening from rose-colored buds.  These are nice plants from divisions.

Anemone obtusiloba affinity Clone B Anemone obtusiloba affinity Clone B

From a Chinese source with no provenance, this came as Anemone subpinnata but is clearly not as it lacks pinnate leaflets below the main leaf blade.  Likely this is obtusiloba and have not yet keyed it out to be sure but playing the percentages.  Similar to our Clone A with similar white flowers and clumping habit but with paler green leaves more deeply dissected with leaf segments correspondingly more attenuated.
