Habenaria radiata 'Ginga'     Variegated White Egret Flower, Hardy Orchid    Zone:  5-9       SunLight Shade

Habenaria radiata 'Ginga'     Variegated White Egret Flower, Hardy Asian Terrestrial OrchidOne of Japan's Treasures is White Egret Flower.  It is a small, deciduous terrestrial orchid of wet grasslands in Asia.  Up to 7 grass-like leaves are green with a fine white edge (in the cultivar 'Ginga') a tall stem that eventually produces 1-7 stunning Egret-like white fringed blooms.  This all grows from a tiny bulb that generally produces 3 more bulbs each season.  In nature they grow around grassy bogs.  Ironically the true Egret bird enjoys the same boggy areas so are often seen together!

Soil: Moist during growth - see more info        H:   W:        B/M:   White/7

 

Habenaria radiata 'Ginga'  - Hardy Asian Terrestrial or Ground Orchid

Habenaria radiata shares a common trait with another hardy orchid, Epipactis thunbergii.  Both have a relationship with soil fungus but fortunately they are not very picky about which ones.  What does this mean?    A lot more information especially about water and soil needs.

Haemanthus humilis      South African Amaryllis relative         SunLight ShadePart Shade    Zone: 7-10

Haemanthus humilis      South African Amaryllis relative A member of the Amaryllis Family that blooms pink to white in summer.  The deciduous leave appear with the flowers in mid or late summer.  One of the more challenging of the Genus, but primarily because of drainage, but if you have a green thumb or a rock garden,  it's an amazingly beautiful bulb.  Our form has furry leaves that are big for this Genus - about 6" long.  It's actually probably H. humilis var. hirsutus.  Hardy to zone 7 but may not bloom consistently outside in 7.

Haemanthus montanus     South African Amaryllis relative         SunLight ShadePart Shade    Zone: (7?) 8-10

Haemanthus montanus     South African Amaryllis relative Despite the species name, this lovely Amaryllis relative doesn't come from Montana but hails from the summer rainfall areas of South Africa.  From two narrow blue green leaves, most with a jaunty spiral twist about half way up and below the twist, can be found fine pink spots, arises a stem with brush-like nearly round umbels crammed full of pale pink flowers which age to white.  In a Genus with some tricky growers, this one is both lovely and fairly easy.  Wants VERY well drained soil but lots of water when in growth if you want to grow it in the deep south outside.  Easy in pots with good soil mix.   During dormancy do not water at all

Soil:  Superbly drained but moist when growing     H: 12-16"   W:      B/M: Pale pink/Midsummer

Heleniums - Helen's Flowers -  are one of the 'Backbone' plants of the late summer garden!  

The common name 'Sneezeweed' is complete misnomer!  Because they bloom at the same time as Ragweed, folks think they cause sneezing BUT the Butterfly will tell you 'tis not so.  Ragweed is wind pollinated and flies up your nose and down your throat.  Heleniums are insect pollinated, NOT wind pollinated and therein, good reader, lies the difference.

The Kemper Center at Missouri Botanical Garden says of the following two amazing, amazing introductions,  "Parents of this patented cultivar are unpatented H. salicifolia (willow-leaved sunflower) cultivars ‘Golden Pyramid’ and ‘Autumn Glory’.  ‘Low Down’ is a perennial sunflower cultivar that is basically a scaled-down version (shorter plant, shorter leaves and smaller flowers) of Helianthus ‘First Light’."    

So while some very, very reputable folks in the trade list them as a form of H. angustifolia, we'll align ourselves with the Kemper Center and say they are derived from H. salicifolia not H. angustifolia. We'll go with their Zone: 4-9 information. But regardless of their Botanical Name, these plants are truly astounding!

  Hepatica asiatica, from which the following Japanese cultivars have been selected, is found in Japan, Russia, Korea and China but the true species probably originated in China.  Species colors can vary from typical blue to pink to white, with different color anthers or bi-colored blooms.  Native to mountain woods it like moisture retentive, humus-rich soil that is well-drained, GRITTY soil.  Indifferent to soil pH. Likes dappled to part shade.

There's a conflict over Hepatica nomenclature, with some placing most Hepatica under H. nobilis then various forms rather than having them as distinct species such as H. americana, H. acutiloba, H. asiatica. 

Per our knowledgeable Japanese supplier on nomenclature, "The idea of using Hepatica nobilis as the name for most of the Asian species is silly, especially when you consider that the Asian species closest to nobilis, H. henryi, is still maintained as a separate species."

Thanks, in particular to Terra Nova, there are an abundance of exciting new Heuchera Hybrids.  Where once we had only the classic 'Palace Purple,' now one can find at least of touch of almost every color in the rainbow.  Gold, burgundy, silver, near black and apricot to mention a few.   "Most hybrids are combinations of sanguinea, americana and micrantha with exact parentage confused and unclear. 

Tips on Growing Heucheras:   1. Well-drained, NEUTRAL soil (most folks have no idea that Heucheras prefer neutral soil) and it must be well-drained   They don't do well with very acid soil.  2.  Divide them every couple of years and 'bring them back to earth'.  Eventually they tend to have stems that are too long.  If that happens, just break them apart and plant them farther down in the soil.  3. Most will take full sun in cooler, northern zones with adequate moisture.

Hippeastrum evansiae ssp. evansiae     Hardy Yellow Amaryllis   SunLight ShadePart Shade  Zone: 6(with protection)7-10

Hippeastrum evansiae ssp. evansiae

From Peru and Bolivia and nearly impossible to find.  Ridiculously expensive but the only yellow spcies of Hippeastrum, slow to grow.  One of the other two vendors we know of sells the offsets for $50 so at $39.99 our bigger bulbs are a steal!   One bulb per pot.  Just a few.   A collectors plant.  Not exceptionally hardy.

Soil:  Well-drained     H:    W:         B/M:  Yellow

Hippeastrum papilio   Butterfly Amaryllis      SunLight ShadePart Shade     Zone: 8-10

Hippeastrum papilio   Butterfly Amaryllis Some think it's the best of all Hippeastrum.  One Christmas mine had about 30 blooms!   Green tinged white blooms with wine.  The blooms look like Butterfly Wings.  Part of what makes it 'best' is that it's evergreen so instead of going dormant, it's a nice foliage houseplant all year in colder zones.

Soil: Well-drained     H: 8-12" (18-36" IB)  W: 6-9"     B/M: Reddish Maroon and green7-8
