Acacia pravissima Acacia pravissima

We wouldn't have guessed we could grow Acacia here in our cold pocket garden but we had a random seedling of this appear in our never-water Arctostaphylos/Garrya bed and it has not had a bit of damage from several winters down to 10F.  Poofs of yellow flowers among the evergreen leaves.  Lean soil, great drainage and dry.

Acanthus sennii Acanthus sennii

Plant Addict Alert!  If you have problems coping with uncontrollable acquisition, step away from this plant.  Take a few minutes, walk through the garden and if you are still besotted, know that it is ok because this is totally cool!  Crazy Ethiopian species for a hot sunny spot with red flowers late summer into fall.

Acer buergerianum var. formosanum Acer buergerianum var. formosanum

This rather tender evergreen species comes from subtropical forests in Taiwan where it is endemic. As it differs markedly from the species, there is some thought that it might be something different altogether.  Good heat tolerance and this can tolerate some frost.  Our plants are cutting-grown from a plant we received from the University of Florida.

Acer oblongum (syn. albopurpurascens) Acer oblongum (syn. albopurpurascens)

A collection of this evergreen species from Taiwan by Adam Black who is the Director of Peckerwood Gardens in Texas.  This Taiwan form was known as A. albopurpurascens but recently has been lumped into Acer oblongum.   We have not yet trialed this outside here but Crug Farm in Wales who grows this suggests a sheltered site protected from freezing winds.  We think it is a candidate for mild gardens here and may go deciduous.

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.

A cracking bicolored Lily of the Nile out of a breeding program in South Africa where this one seedling out of hundreds exhibited excellent white flowers with a blue base.  These are held in 6"-8" umbels on stems to nearly 4' tall!  Maybe the best thing is that is deciduous and hardy going to zone 7b with a good mulch.

Agapetes smithiana APA 022 - Red Calyx Form Agapetes smithiana APA 022 - Red Calyx Form

This epiphytic Vaccinium relative - indeed some have merged the two genera - is a stunner. Growing on trees in the cloud forests of the Himalaya, this forms woody lignotubers from which arise the branches clad in evergreen leaves which hold the narrow pendant yellow flowers in late winter and spring. This is an especially good form with red calyces. Tolerant of light frost and needs very good drainage.  Our overwintering hummingbirds love this in our greenhouse.
