Calamintha nepeta 'Blue Cloud'        Blue Cloud Lesser Calamint      Zone:  5-9     Full sunLight/dappled shade

Calamintha nepeta 'Blue Cloud'One of England's premier plantswomen, Beth Chatto, favors this decidedly blue form of Calamint and we're pleased to offer it this season.  It has the same height, good looks and determined habits as the Calamintha 'White Cloud' but with blue blooms ALL SUMMER.  The blooms seem much larger to us than the species.  Long blooming.

Calamintha nepeta 'White Cloud'     White Cloud Lesser Calamint        Zone: 5-9      Full sunLight/dappled shade

Calamintha nepeta 'White Cloud'Profuse clouds of large, PURE WHITE thyme-like blooms arise ALL SUMMER from a mass of mint-scented, hairy leaves. Use in the foreground in a sunny, well-drained spot. Striking in the herb garden but pretty enough for any perennial bed. Soft white cloud of flowers w/ gray-green foliage effect takes a couple of years to establish but is finally magnificent. 

Soil: Well-drained        H: 12-15" W: 15"        B/M: White/6-10 (Frost)

Keep in mind, Calaminthas are in the Mint family but are gorgeous, well-behaved, clump-forming perennials -- not spreading, 'take over your garden' plants like Menthas or true Mints.

Callirhoe bushii    Bush's Poppy Mallow or Wine CupsOne of the few Callirhoe that will tolerate light shade.  Needs impeccably drained soil and drought tolerant once established due to it's long tap root.  Upward facing 5-petaled magenta blooms from June through August.  The somewhat rambling stems are somewhat more erect that those of C. involucrata which is similar.  Native found primarily in KS, MO, AR & OK.

Callirhoe digitata      Fringed Poppy Mallow, Standing Wine Cup, Finger Mallow      Zone 5-8     Full sun

Callirhoe digitata      Fringed Poppy Mallow, Standing Wine Cup, Finger Mallow The mid-West Native is great for the person who doesn't have the room it takes to grow Callirhoe involucrata below or wants a more vertical tower of blooming power because it doesn't let up from May through September!  Long tap root makes plant drought tolerant when established but difficult to move successfully, so plant it where you want it to stay.  Bluish white, thin, finger-like foliage and fringed tipped magenta blooms.   Plants tend to 'lean' in soil that's too rich.  Plant in the most pathetic well-drained spot in your garden where next to nothing will grow, don't fertilize and it will be mucho happy!  Well does it sound near perfect?  Okay, the downside -- deer and rabbits do like it so it's not quite perfect but it doesn't seem to mind the rabbits eating the lower foliage.  With deer eating the upper foliage, it's another matter.

Cardiocrinum cordatum var. glehnii   Japanese Cardiocrinum, Giant Yunnan Lily   Zone:   (3*) 5-8      Light ShadePart Shade

Cardiocrinum cordatum var. glehnii   Japanese Lily6 foot tall blooms stalks with excellent fragrance to the cream with a hint of green trumpet shaped blooms. The flowering stem of this member of the Lily family, produces up to 20 blooms, but dies however, it produces new bulbils and so though each bulb only blooms every 4 years, there's eventually a steady succession of blooms each year as the bulbils grow. Protect leaves (which look slightly similar to and apparently taste like Hostas) against slugs - a copper collar is easy. Will take cold to Zone 3 IF there's heavy consistent snow cover. Easy to grow from seed from which it forms many but it's 9 years to bloom if that explains the price somewhat!   Much more rare and slightly shorter than the species.
