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.

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

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..

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.

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 obtusiloba 'Large Blue' Anemone obtusiloba ex 'Big Blue'

Seedlings from this very good form of the very variable Anemone obtusiloba which ranges at higher altitudes across the Himalaya into western China.  Our mama plant came home with us from Scotland and is notable for larger blue flowers with 3-4 extra petals beyond the usual 5.  We expect these youngsters to carry on the family tradition.

Anemonella thalictroides 'Betty Blake' Anemonella thalictroides 'Betty Blake'

A fully double green form found in Michigan by Betty Blake and named for her which only seems right.  This has quite perfect flowers which are more art than botany and whose function lies strictly in the aesthetics rather than in the somewhat banal business of procreation.  Not that the latter isn't fun........................

Anemonella thalictroides 'Kikuzaki White' Anemonella thalictroides 'Kikuzaki White'

A new Japanese selection of a favorite eastern US wildflower. This has double white flowers which are quite large and are not the domed buttons of say 'Oscar Shoaf' but more of a flattened button with a thick frill of petals. This will bloom for many weeks on an established clump. These are divisions from our plants and very choice.

Anemonella thalictroides 'Shiozaki' Anemonella thalictroides 'Shiozaki'

Very new selection out of Japan that is like a slightly less tight and paler 'Cameo'. These are surprisingly tough tuberous perennials native to the eastern US and will go summer dormant but before that happens, you will enjoy many weeks of long-lasting double flowers on an eventual impressive-for-its size clump.

Leaves evoking Anemone and pendant flowers combining pastels and lavenders in an understated parasol of exquisite design and dimension. A plant that is not on the radar of a lot of gardeners so let's keep it to ourselves.

Aquilegia formosa Aquilegia formosa

Our native Columbine from seed collected on the way up to Mt Townsend in the Olympics.  One of our most endearing natives with pendulous flowers which have reddish petals and spurs backing a soft yellow cup.  This has a grace and charm so lacking in the garden hybrids.  One of the first wildflowers I learned tottering around in the woods.
