Coreopsis tripteris 'Gold Standard'      Tall Tickseed      Zone:  4-9    

From the Mt. Cuba Center in their own words about their introduction: "Coreopsis tripteris ‘Gold Standard’ combines all of the great attributes of the straight species, like excellent hardiness and disease resistance, with a smaller and sturdier habit. Although still a large plant at just under 6’ tall, ‘Gold Standard’ has strong stems that never flop. Because ‘Gold Standard’ is sturdier, its flowers are better presented than the typical species. Bountiful masses of yellow flowers with dark cones begin in late summer when many other perennials are winding down. ‘Gold Standard’ is a rhizomatous perennial that spreads about 2’ over three years. This cultivar is a selection made by Mt. Cuba Center from seed collected in Alabama."

Coreopsis verticillata 'Route 66' PPAF       Threadleaf Coreopsis     Zone: 4-9     

Coreopsis verticillata 'Route 66'Discovered at Bauer's Perennial Farm it appeared in their zone 5 garden in 2005 and has overwintered for 3 years.  They feel that due to the strength in zone 5 (that reached -15 degrees), that it will go as cold as zone 4.  Blooms June to October with a bright yellow bloom and a 'bleeding' burgundy red eye that with the red 'bleeding' down into the yellow and the predominant color.  By fall it becomes almost all red.  We actually visited Bauer's once on a road trip -- well worth the visit!

  Any Corydalis may 'Estivate' - go dormant from heat but especially so IN our greenhouses where, in pots above ground, the roots get much warmer than they ever would in garden soil.  They return when in a cooler setting.  This is not reflective of what they do in the ground which is never 100 degrees as our greenhouses can be so it rarely happens in the garden.

USE NO CHEMICALS ON CORYDALIS.  Fortunately, they aren't bothered by much of anything that needs chemicals.

Corydalis 'Blackberry Wine'      Zone: 5-8A        cool areas,

Corydalis 'Blackberry Wine'An amazing new corydalis from China that is taking the trade by storm.  Usually corydalis dislike heat and have to live in the shade but this guy will take full sun or light shade in superbly drained soil and grow to a stunning 24" wide clump topped with fragrant, wine-purple flowers from mid-April through November.  Will take sun but there is more chance it will Estivate (go dormant from summer heat) when placed in sun in warm zones.  In medium shade, ours never goes dormant in zone 7.  Some sources list it only for Sun/Light shade but we grow ours under an 80% shade cloth or a huge pine tree, which is pretty deep shade.  They 'stretch' a bit but otherwise do fine.

Corydalis leucanthema 'Silver Spectre'     False Bleeding Heart    Zone: 5-8A      

Corydalis sp 'Silver Spectre'Collected by Dan Hinkley in 1996 in Sichuan, China but has found 'Happy Home' in the Southeast where it doesn't seem to mind the heat plus humidity.  Olive green foliage is white-washed with silver in the center but emerges almost looking frosted.  Like many, it will Estivate (go dormant in summer heat) but cheerfully pops back up when cooler weather starts again in Fall.  Steady spreader, about a foot a year.  Light lavender blooms have dark purple lips.  Easy grower from small Dahlia like tubers.  AKA. Corydalis sp. 'Silver Spectre' as a few experts do not believe it is a form of C. leucanthema.

  Hardy Cyclamen -- are bulbs!

In spring, they are starting to go summer dormant, losing foliage and feeder roots, which will return in Fall.  We strongly recommend if yours arrive dormant that you plant them in well-drained soil and leave them alone.  Watering dormant plants in pots is somewhere between a skill and an art - and not so easy.  Put them in we'll drained soil, where they actually like 'root competition' from trees and let Mother Nature do the watering.  They need no extra water when dormant.  Note, they like root competition, even from a maple tree BUT they don't like foliage competition, so don't let their neighbors crowd them.

PRICING- - Plants are priced by Leaf/Bloom Color and Age/Size)  -- More sought after coloration and/or  larger/older bulbs are more expensive.

Cyclamen graecum             Greek Cyclamen                                        Zone:  (7)8-9

Cyclamen graecum   Greek CyclamenNot especially hardy BUT if you're in a warm zone with scree, rock garden or superb drainage or are skilled at pot culture (dry when dormant), this sun-loving species, hailing from Greece, has the most beautiful foliage of the Genus and extremely elegant flowers, opening in early Fall.  By in large pink, there is the occasional white.  The foliage is highly variable, almost like velvet when it unfurls with striking silver or pewter marking.  Moore (1996) says "...the basic colour is dark green, though all shades from black/green through grey/green to lime green can be found. The leaf pattern is usually contrasting blotches or bands of cream, green, grey or silver. The combinations are so numerous that a collection of different leaf forms could be a study in itself."   Will take frost IF the tuber is buried deeply.  They appreciate decayed pine needles!  They do not like over-potting, so repot when the bulb really needs to get out of the pot!

Soil: Superbly drained, acid        H: 3"  W: 6"       B/M:    Mostly pink, occasionally a white/8-10

Cyclamen graecum,  silver/pewter foliage   Silver/Pewter Greek Cyclamen          Zone:  (7)8-9

Cyclamen graecum,  silver/pewter foliage As above but with predominantly silver/pewter leaves.  There's such amazing variety to C. graecum leaves but these have distinctly more silver than green.  Not all silver, they have the distinctive beautiful pattern but significantly more silver than green.  If growing in a pot, they shouldn't be repotted until they touch the sides of the pot.   Will take frost IF the tuber is buried deeply, so for very warm areas or pots where it appreciates decayed pine needles!
