Jasminum sambac 'Maid of Orleans'      Arabian Tea Jasmine        Zone:  (8,9) 10-11

Jasminum sambac 'Maid of Orleans'Some years ago, when we quite growing and selling Tender Perennials, we found ourselves unable to part with 'Maid of Orleans'.  Even though it's not hardy in much of the country and supposed to be evergreen, in fact, it is hardier than some report.  In Zone 8 and 9, it dies back to the ground but will survive outside according to Floridata.  But even if you can't grow it outside, you should consider growing it inside where it never stops blooming and the sweet smelling flowers actually seem to clean the air with it's fragrance which is truly unrivaled in all of nature!  Can be grown in a pot and kept pruned.

Jeffersonia diphylla   Native Twinleaf    Zone: 4-8      

Jeffersonia diphyllaOne of our most lovely Native plants.  Named after 'our own' Thomas Jefferson.  At first glance, the plant appears to have 2 twin leaves but, actually it's just one (diphylla means two-parted leaf).  It's among the earliest to grace the woodland garden floor.  Similar to but more stately than Bloodroot which blooms at the same time.  Delicate but large white blooms 1" across.  Takes a wide range of pH but prefers limey.

Soil:  Well-drained, woodland   H: 8-16"  W: 6-12"      B/M:  White/ Early spring

Jeffersonia dubbia    Chinese Twinleaf    Zone:  4-7A      

Jeffersonia dubbia    Chinese TwinleafOne of two species in the genus located half a world apart, this rare plant is certainly the most magnificent --forming a dome of lavender blue, anemone-like flowers on stiff, wire-like stems, just as the kidney-shaped leaves emerge in spring. A well-grown plant is a coveted prize in any garden but just as easy to grow as our US Native.

Soil: Moist but well-drained        H: 9-12"   W: 12"     B/M:  Lavender blue/3-5

Keiskea japonica  (Colnisia japonica)   Japanese Frost Columns    Zone: 5-8     ()

Keiskea japonica   Japanese Frost ColumnsAn Eltsholtzia relative, this pretty little bushy herbaceous perennial is from Japan reaching to 36" with white flowers, often in pairs, that just shine in from of the dark tinted foliage on near horizontal stems.  Later bloomers are always valuable in the garden.  The Japanese Common Name is Shimo-hashira which means 'Frost Columns'. (In winter, the dormant stalks tend to collect frost and moisture and form ice columns!)  AKA Colnisia japonica, however we choose to use the name most known in Japan, with this plant named thus to honor Keisuke Ito (1803-1901) who studied with famed plantsman Siebold.  Really -- we trust the judgment of Taxonomists but a plant honoring a 98 year old plantsman shouldn't be totally changed!  There must be some other way!  Maybe it could be called Colnisa keiskeanna.  :-)

Kirengeshoma palmatum    Japanese Yellow Waxbells      Zone: 4-8  

Kirengeshoma palmatumA large Japanese plant with maple-shaped leaves to 8" across & sprays of cool yellow flowers, it belongs to the Hydrangea family. A semi-shaded location w/ moist, rich, acid soil suit it best.  Beautiful yellow bloom with heavily textured petals when nothing is happening in the shade garden, which makes it even more valuable.

Kirengeshoma koreana     Japanese Yellow Waxbells      Zone: 4-8     

Kirengeshoma palmatumMuch discussion in the horticulture world over the classification of this lovely.  Some say it's a subspecies of K. palmatum, others, particularly in Europe list it as K. palmatum Koreana Group.  Whatever the name (we go along with MOBOT), it's as above but occasionally somewhat larger with more outfacing blooms rather than hanging blooms.  Both this and the above are just lovely -- it's more a matter of taste -- hanging or outfacing blooms and possibly size.

Knautia macedonica 'Thunder and Lightning'  PP21437     Variegated Knautia      Zone: 5-9     

Knautia macedonica 'Thunder and Lightning' What could you possibly do to make Knautia a more perfect plant?  Easy, dependable, blooms all the times. gorgeous.  Hm-m-m-m,,,  Well I suppose somebody could introduce a Variegated form.  And so they have!  Sunny Border Nurseries has produced the ohsofabulous 'Thunder and Lightning' and like a bolt from the sky, it's going to put lightning in your garden (not sure about the Thunder unless it's Thunderous Applause!)  The magenta bloom, still a non-stop bloomer, is the perfect match for this green foliage edged in cream.  And if the species has a tiny, tiny flaw, it occasionally is a bit leggy.  T&L is much shorter and more compact.

Soil: Well-drained, neutral     H: 1218"   W: 10-18"    B/M: Wine-red/ 6-10 

  As you can tell from our steadily adding more and more Red Hot Pokers, we've never met one we didn't like.  They add amazing structure and texture to the garden, are a 4 evergreen season plant, easy care, deer hate it, Hummingbirds love it, it's a great cut flower - what's not to love!

Kniphofia northiae       Octopus Red Hot Poker         Zone: 6-10      

Kniphofia northiaeThis is such a stunning Red Hot Poker, named in honor of Botanical Painter Marianne North who painted it's Picture along with countless other, her collection now housed at Kew Gardens.  This Giant Poker has, hands down, the best foliage in the Genus, with very wide grey green, Aloe-like foliage, curving gently.  Deep orange red buds, in long densely packed inflorescence open to greenish yellow flowers.  Not terribly different than some 'Poker' blooms BUT, the foliage -- ah-h-h, the Foliage -- that's what sets this one apart!  Prefers summer moist soil.

Kniphofia 'Papaya Popsicle'       Red Hot Poker Brand New 'Papaya Popsicle' is an all-summer bloomer with a very short compact habit. A near non-stop bloomer with spikes of flowers the color of ripe papayas -- you can't decide whether to look at it or eat it!  We suggest the former -- it doesn't taste like Papaya!  The tidy grass-like foliage looks great all season.  Superb for a container, small garden or front of the border.

Kniphofia typhoides     Brown or Cattail Poker     Zone: (6,7?) 8-10        

Kniphofia typhoides     Brown or Cattail PokerWith brown 'blooms' that look a lot like Cattails, this honey scented, nectar filled bloom draws all many of pollinators in.  From South Africa, the brown spires appear from late Summer thru Fall.  This bold, vertical focal point plant will tolerate clay soil and actually needs more moisture than most Kniphofias. The foliage is also not like the average Poker being blue green and slightly twisted.  It would look marvelous beside a stream of pond.  Hardy to 15 degrees but folks in very cold zones should plant early and give it some extra protection the first winter.  Blooms later than most Pokers so extends the season.  Used to survive in Ellen Hornig's garden in Oswego, NY BUT she had fairly consistent snow cover.  So maybe try heavy mulch.
