Allium cernuum      Nodding Onion, Lady's Leek     SunLight ShadePart Shade      Zone: 4-8

Allium cernuumNative from Canada to Mexico, this lovely Ornamental Allium is grown easily in any well-drained soil and will actually take shade which most Alliums won't.  12" tall glaucous foliage feature tiny bell-shaped pink to lilac (rarely white) blooms which are in loose, nodding clusters, slightly above the foliage.  The nodding blooms distinguish it from other Natives and occur because the flower stem execute a hairpin turn near the top, leaving the bloom to dangle seductively as if to say, "Come on over Big Boy and take a good look!" (with a very Mae West accent!)

Amorphophallus konjac        Voodoo or Voo Doo Lily          Zone:  6-10      

Amorphophallus konjac  Voo Doo Lily

The most bizarre and wondrous plant at the nursery. When it's old enough, it produces a giant 5' tall flowers in late April, early May that looks like giant burgundy vase from Mars! The leathery outer 'vessel' holds a quite Phallic looking purple spadix on a speckled stem. Honestly, this doesn't look at all like it calls Earth it's home! Straight out of Star Trek!  It attracts flies for pollination and thus is stinky for a brief bit BUT, the second it's pollinated, the plant 'Gets It' and quits stinking! The 'bloom' is followed in June by a more Earth-like, albeit it Tropical, green and burgundy mottled stem reaching 5-6' feet and hosting one huge divided leaf. Does every garden need this? Probably not. But if you're into the Tropical, Exotic, even Other-Worldly, or want something no one in your neighborhood (or maybe town or state) has, Konjac is calling you -- Beam Him Up Scotty!

Anemone hupehensis var. japonica - Japanese Anemone - aren't really from Japan but are, in fact, from China.  Because Japan has been more open to plant exploration, Anemones were named (when discovered in Japan where they have naturalized) as Japanese Anemones but actually the species (and the form transported to Japan), A. hupehensis japonica, are actually Chinese plants!  Anemone hupehensis grows wild in west China from Hubei to Sichuan and Yunnan.   Featured in the September 2009 issue of Martha Steward Living!

Edible flowers! Sprinkle some on a salad for fun!
