Acaena sp. Acaena sp.

This is a silver-blue foliaged species from South America we received from Jerry Flintoff which makes a 3' diameter broundcover of ferny foliage which is topped in summer by friendly little reddish brown burs like a forest of miniature Tootsie Roll Pops.  Good drainage is key.

Acanthus dioscoridis var. perringii Acanthus dioscoridis var. perringii

An intricate departure from the common, coarser Acanthus, this is far more diminutive with low, finely cut, thistle-like foliage less than a foot tall and short 16" flower spikes with pink flowers. Very easily managed spreader. Ours has been in the ground for several years and last year we finally were able to divide off a few pieces to pot up. Full sun and good drainage.

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 episcopale Aconitum episcopale

Fabulous wine-colored (red - not white) vining Monkshood that cannot fail to please with late summer into fall flowers.  Perfect for sun to light shade, this will make annual growth of 10'-15' if it has something to twine onto.  Best part, it's poisonous - take that, deer!

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.

Our collection of this most impressive vining Monkshood.  Sumptuous flowers of a good blue with a white interior  This one is a real cracker and these will easily grow 8'-12' or even 15' tall provided they have something to twine onto.  An immense treat in August and September.

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.

Adiantum x tracyi Adiantum x tracyi

A fine evergreen Maidenhair Fern from a naturally occurring hybrid between Adiantum aleuticum and A. jordanii.  These are a different clone than the "original clone" and no less desireable with the same fine and wholesome attributes.  Maidenhairs have always been one of the quintessential ferns in our estimation and this is a choice one.

Agastache aurantiaca 'Tango' Agastache aurantiaca 'Tango'

Small yet floriferous Hyssop native to northern Mexico but hardy to below zero.  The tangerine peach flowers go on and on in the summer and the aromatic foliage causes the dratted deer to leave it alone.  Best in a lean soil and tolerant of drier conditions - this would be perfect in that gravel garden or hell strip.

Ajuga incisa 'Bikun' Ajuga incisa 'Bikun'

Frosted Jade Ajuga.  Hard to believe that this is an Ajuga but it is true.  This choice selection has fantastic foliage and very good dark cobalt flowers.  Not a spreader - this makes a clump with 16" tall stems.  Challenges all of your comfy notions about Ajuga but in a good way.  Great in our shade garden.

Ajuga incisa 'Blue Enigma' Ajuga incisa 'Blue Enigma'

Rare plant found only in limited areas in central Honshu, Japan where it likes the forest fringes in the subalpine areas and is known as hiiragi-sou or holly tree-leafed weed.  Hiiragi-sou sounds better than the translation.  This selection has dark blue flowers and is a deciduous clumper to 16" tall - very nice!

Allium 'Summer Pink' Allium 'Summer Pink'

One of my favorite Alliums from Mark McDonough with cool gray green foliage and sugar pink 2" balls of flowers in midsummer.  This is a rhizomatous type making nice clumps without being invasive.  The foliage looks good during bloom and the bees & butterflies have a rugby scrum over the nectar.

Allium schoenoprasum 'Aaland' Allium schoenoprasum 'Aaland'

Dwarf Scandanavian selection of Chives which is way more ornamental than usefully edible.  Lots of pinkish lavender flowers on a very compact plant.  Quite useful in the rock garden or detailed planting site such as edge of a stepping stone or against a rock.
