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!)

Allium splendens var. kurilense f. albumThe white form of a dwarf, clump-forming Japanese species from a few sites on Kyushu Island, now nearly extinct in the wild.   Ours are, of course nursery grown by our friends at Shikoku Gardens.   Usually patterned semi-glossy evergreen leaves, to 4" long.  Found in the trade, primarily in Japan, there's definitely conflict over nomenclature, with some feeling this is not a form of A. splendens but regardless of the name, the photos, heights, bloom color and time are correct.  We'll leave the nomenclature to those who do that for a living and we'll just grow the plants!

Slender bulb clustered on a rhizome.

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!

Anemone nemorosa f. 'Viridissima'    European Wood Anemone, Windflower, Thimbleweed  Zone: 5-8 

Acquired from our good friend Gene Bush, owner of the former Munchkin Nursery.  Hand written tag on plugs said 'Viridissima' but since that name is not found in Botanical listings, we feel pretty certain these are same as the above, A. n. Viridiflora.  We're keeping them separate in case, it is some variation.  Gene managed to collect a lot of very rare plants and grew lots of things from seed.  When the the name 'Viridissima' is applied to Forsythia, it denotes that the blooms "have short filaments and a long style", so possibly this flower has slightly different characteristics.

Anemonopsis macrophylla    False Anemone               Zone:   4-9 (moderately warm to cool summers)

One of the Aristocrats of the Japanese Garden.  Dan Hinkley wrote in the Explorer's Garden of this lovely, "This species does not politely ask for a sheltered and cool location - it demands it.  The flowers and foliage will scald if exposed to full sun and wind, even if provided supplemental water and a rich edaphic environment (which he had when his Herronswood Nursery was in Seattle).  It is slow to establish in the garden, a trait that I always find admirable in a herbaceous species, because it means that it will be long-lived and rather nuisance-free."  Sets lots of seed but most don't germinate.  From seed, 3-4 years before bloom set and better production with multiple plants.
