Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy'     Zone:  8A-10 

Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy'An incredible succulent for your garden.  Nothing else quite like it!  This Mexican Native has smooth pale gray succulent foliage, it's topped in summer by lovely yellow bloom that shade to peach near the base.  According to reputable San Marcos growers, hardy to 25 degrees and Yuccado says 8A.  This Evergreen easily comes inside for winter.  Overwinters fine above ground in pots in zone 7, which is generally an indication of a fair amount of hardiness (pots above ground are colder than plants in the ground), so it wouldn't surprise me if this was hardy in zone 7 in a protected spot.

Echinacea pallida   Pale Purple Coneflower     Zone:  3-10     

Echinacea pallidaNative to more than half the country and yet has 'Threatened' status in the states of Tennessee and Wisconsin.  I find this to be one of the most graceful, elegant Coneflowers due to the pale color and lovely, thin, extremely-reflexed petals.  One of our few Natives that really can grow in every state due to it's broad range of zone compatibility.  Plants usually rebloom without deadheading, however deadheading improves general appearance. Freely self-seeds if at least some of the seed heads are left in place (and the goldfinches love them.)

Echinacea purpurea 'Doubledecker'If the Hat Diva, Hedda Hopper, designed a Coneflower, this would be it!  It's wearing a charming, flamboyant hat!  Beautifully unique, FRAGRANT flowers sprout another set of petals atop the cone in a thoroughly delightful manner!  Generally the doubles don't appear until their second year and thereafter.    German Gardener, Eugen Schleipfer discovered this chance mutation in his garden and started dividing and promoting the best form.  TWENTY years later, he introduced 'Doublecker' ('Doppelganger') to the trade.  Protection in zone 3, shade in zone 9.

Echinacea purpurea 'Kim's Knee High'

A dwarf form of the species. Known for it's short habit and very long summer bloom. It's beautiful, drooping, clear rose-pink blooms and large, pin cushion coper to bronze central cones stand on stems 15-24" and start to bloom in June and if deadheaded will produce another burst of blooms in August that will bloom intermittently through Fall. Those you can leave because the seeds are loved by Goldfinches. And what the birds don't get, will self seed. A classic!

Echinacea purpurea 'PowWow White'      White Coneflower     Looks just like another white Coneflower, with reflexed overlapping petals in photos but then you find out: 1) The blooms are GIGANTIC - 3-4" across and  2) It blooms non-stop, early to late summer even if you don't deadhead it and  3) It has many more stems than the other whites which means 4) Many more blooms per plant.  Like an Echinacea on steroids -- just more of everything except height -- it's actually more compact than most which means the mass of blooms appear even more spectacular.  I think it should be call Pow! Wow!  This is a knockout!  And it's not a hybrid - it's a cultivar of dependable 'Bones of the Garden' Echinacea purpurea so tough as nails.

'Rubinstern'.  And from that auspicious heritage, one plant stood out and became the clonal parent for vegetative propagation for 'Ruby Giant'.  Giant as you might guess for it's FRAGRANT 5-7" wide, intensely colored ruby pink blooms on strong stems.  The double row of petals are held almost horizontal but have up-curved petal tips

  Hybrid Coneflowers now run the gamut of color.  By crossbreeding, our Native Pink and White Echinacea purpurea to gold forms such as Echinacea paradoxa, breeders have come up with colors that pre-2000 would have seemed impossible.  From peach to gold to colors good enough to eat (and named thusly) they're truly a breeding breakthrough.

Well drained NEUTRAL TO LIMEY soil is a MUST!  Acid or poorly drained soil can be fatal.

Echinacea 'Heavenly Dream' PPAF   Shorter Fragrant Hybrid Coneflowe

If you think 'Fragrant Angel's is the best fragrant white Coneflower, you've just reached the advocate for 'Heavenly Dream'!  With white-white 4" blooms, 'Heavenly Dream' is more compact in part because the blooms sit atop the foliage rather than standing tall on long stems above it.  Visually for me, it's a more attractive plant for that reason alone.  Bigger blooms with similar fragrance to it's relative. It's hard to be the new kid on the block especially when you're following the great 'Fragrant Angel' but do not pass this one by -- it is superb!  Deadheading prolongs blooms.

What you're saying about us... I have ordered from five different online nurseries this year. (2008)  I have received everything for "bareroot" to what I got from you today.  I ordered a few types of Echinacea, just yesterday got some that was a tiny little root ball the size of my thumb.  I was so sad by this.  Then today your order arrived!  The plants literally burst out of the box when I opened the flaps, one plant had buds on it all ready!  They are as nice if I had gone to the nursery myself and picked it out by hand.  I just wanted to let you know I am thrilled and so very happy with your nursery and my plants.

Epigaea repens     Trailing Arbutus

One of the treasures of the US woodlands.  With 2-3", thick shiny dark green leaves, heart-shaped at the based and a bit lighter beneath comes HIGHLY FRAGRANT blooms, white to pink in clusters of 3-5 and up to 1/2" across in early to mid-spring.  Those are followed by 1/2" pale yellow-orange berry like capsules in late summer.  Absolutely demanding about soil -- it must be sandy, acid and well-drained.  It does not like root disturbance.  Soil fungal macrorrhizum that it needs is usually found in woodland soil.  If you're trying to grow it in the shade garden, try to incorporate some woodland soil in with the planting -- we do in each pot but that may not be sufficient.  Superb cultural information from a contributor on this iVillage Forum page.  Grows in Pine Barrens if that gives you thoughts on culture.

Epimediums  or Barrenwort - Bishop's Caps - Fairy Wings

(Horny Goat Weed is also a common name ... :-)  what can we say?)

We have an huge selection of Epimediums - because we're mad, mad, mad for them!  Popular for years in Europe, they're just being discovered in the US.  Light, airy spring blooms on plants that frequently are tough as nails and drought tolerant when established.   Dependable, basically polite spreaders or clump formers.  The difference between Evergreen and Deciduous foliage is somewhat unique. Evergreen means the leaf will never fall of of it's own accord even when it gets ragged or even skeletonized, which they can do in colder zones.  The deciduous ones, however, turn brown and fall off on their own.  Basically by late winter, most are ready to be sheared prior to the coming bloom period.  Most varieties/species are listed as hardy to Zone 5 however, many have been grown farther north with a good layer of mulch.  They can take cold but can't take alternate quick freezing and thawing.

 

About price: "Epimediums are self-sterile (they won’t set seed unless pollinated by another plant), and breeding from seed is complicated. The plants cannot be rapidly propagated through tissue culture or stem cuttings, either.  Division of a rhizome is the most effective method of propagation. On clumping varieties, however, this process is very slow, so these types of Epimediums command higher prices."

Epimedium acuminatum 'Yellow Flowered Form'This ridiculously rare Epimedium with white sepals and light yellow petals and spurs and may eventually be classified as it's own species, however, for the time being it is still considered a Yellow Form of E. acuminatum.  The Chinese have long said there is a yellow form but only recently has it made it's way to the United States The Genus Epimedium also agrees that there is a yellow form.  Evergreen but ready to be sheared in late winter.  Trifoliate leaves, undulate, spiny margins. Large 1" spidery blooms with long spurs.

Possibly it's from the koreanum end of the spectrum, is E. franchetii or an E. grandiflorum or E. acuminatum hybrid.  Open to thoughts from Epimedium experts!.
