|Here's part of the NARGS rabble|
Here you can see it artfully naturalizing along with the wonderful native Celandine poppy (Stylophorum diphyllum) a plant I love and seem currently not to have in my garden.
A wonderful wall where many gesneriads have been tucked in, and ferns are spreading by spore. this is what great gardening looks like!
|Weigela subsessilis 'Canary'|
Another plant of it around the corner...
|Corydalis incisa can be a bit "rambunctious: gh must have had resistance pulling it out!|
|Many epimediums were coming into bloom...|
|And this dainty white violet|
|I am envious of Cinnamon fern--since my garden lacks a moist enough spot to grow it well...|
|Iris lacustris 'Alba'|
An amazing stone with ferns producing sporelings all over it...and lots of gesneriads!
A closer view
More of our native Celandine poppy (Stylophorum diphyllum)
I love ferns when the croziers are emerging--in this case a choice Polystichum.
A wonderful slope carpeted with woodland gems...
The contrast of Jeffersonia diphylla leaves and Pachysandra procumbens is marvellous!
|Trillium erectum 'Album' I suspect|
|Lots of interesting graminoids...Tony's specialty|
He'll know what this one is...
|Corydalis nobilis in full glory|
|Epimedium grandiflorum in many forms...|
|Lots of odd woodlanders...you won't see THESE at Wallmart.|
|Who doesn't know or covet this?|
|Mukdenia rossii and the great Trillium blooming together...|
|I should know this!|
|Ranzania japonica and Beesia|
|Another shot of Beesia: looks so much like a ginger!|
|Glorious sessile Trillium (help!)|
|The lushest clump of Prosartes lanuginosa I've ever seen (used to be Disporum)|
|I know I should know this woodlander: Tony! help!|
|Very happy clump of Caltha palustris by the bog...|
|Darmera peltata and Stylophorum--a great combo|
|Great woodland textures...|
|Trillium recurvatum (below) and T. luteum above|
|More wonderful epimediums..|
|Even more rhodies...|
|Two very cold winters have not been to the taste of palm trees--but they appear to be alive!|
|I remember this smelled good...|
|The classic Epimedium x sulphureum|
|A seemingly restrained white violet..|
|Maianthemum (Smilacina) stellatum in a congested form|
|A handsome aucuba, although I recall Tony said he did protect it some...|
|This is trillium country--and I believe recurvatum, grandiflorum and luteum all grow not far away in nature|
|Daphne genkwa: had to include it although it's out of focus!|
|A handsome mass of Camassia leichtlinii|
|I was impressed with that Trillium recurvatum as you can tell...|
|The crevice garden|
|The crevice garden 2|
|Daphnes love the crevice garden|
|I believe that's Artemisia assoana in the middle.|
|Iris humilis (or arenaria or flavissima--depending on your reference)|
|A splendid Thalictrum. Not sure which species...|
|An unusual member of the mint family|
|Pitcher plant bog with Helonias bullata|
|Primula kisoana f. alba|
|You never know who's coming around the corner: Harvey Wrightman!|
|A lovely stand of bog bean (Menyanthes trifoliata)|
|Paeonia aff japonica|
|Hydrangea petiolaris clinging to a wall...|
|Orontium (not so) aquaticum|
|I was surprised that Acis nicaensis was a reliable garden plant here...|
|Yet another Stylophorum: they love it here!|
|Tony, a spellbinding speaker!|
