Anemone


The native wood anemones have now produced a large number of varieties. Even if these beauties suggest elevated needs due to their grace, this is not the case. They are just as robust and hardy as the wild species and need a place under deciduous trees where the sun shines in spring and there is shade in summer. At such planting sites, they beautify the garden with their carpets of flowers, only to disappear back into the ground towards the end of spring at the same time as the leaves of the trees and shrubs sprout.

Anemone nemorosa 'Alba Plena'

This is one of the oldest and most well-known wood anemones, having roamed the gardens since the late Middle Ages. Robust and strong-growing like the natural form, it adorns itself with gracefully double flowers in pure white from April to May. The inside of the flower does not form a "puschel" like in other varieties, but rather a kind of small crown in the middle of the flower - very charming.

Anemone nemorosa 'Blue Eyes'

This is one of the most beautiful varieties of the native wood anemone. The flowers that unfold above the leaf whorls are completely filled with narrow, pure white petals. After half of the flowering period, the flowers open completely to reveal a cobalt blue center - the "blue eye" after which the variety is named. A location with sun in spring and shade in summer is ideal, ideally under deciduous trees. There the wood anemone forms dense cushions over time.

Anemone nemorosa 'Royal Blue'

There are now several varieties of blue wood anemone, but "Royal Blue" is still the most beautiful and colourfast. The large and simple flowers shine in a non-fading medium blue, which also has a certain long-distance effect. The only downer is the slow growth of the plant, which takes a few years longer than its sisters until sizeable cushions have formed.

Anemone nemorosa 'Salt and Pepper'

Found in Scandinavia and still very rare, this variety is something out of the ordinary. Like other varieties, it has flowers filled with white petaloids. But with this one, these inner petals are provided with a very delicate, grey-green edge, which results in a very plastic effect. We look forward to it every year when this variety blooms again. The picture is from 2019, in 2020 this variety had even more filling. Basically, the stronger the plant, the more perfect the flowers.
Now at the end of October 2022 we have completed the propagation of this great variety and more than 100 young plants have emerged. These will be activated at this point after the successful drive through at the beginning of 2023.

Anemone ranunculoides 'Golden Dream'

In our opinion, this is the most beautiful variety of the yellow anemone. Filled with yellow petals, the flower features a ring of deep green serrated leaves like a wreath or crown - simply stunning! This variety grows a little slower than the wild variety, but is just as robust and durable. For partial shade to shade under deciduous trees. An incredible rarity and very valuable.

Anemone ranunculoides 'Linearis'

This variety of the yellow anemone is a bit out of the ordinary. The foliage is divided into narrow, threadlike segments, giving the plant a very graceful appearance. The flowers are single as in the pure species. Due to the smaller assimilation area, this rare variety unfortunately does not grow as fast. Please understand me correctly, the perennial is absolutely hard and robust, it only grows quite slowly. I know this sounds silly, but she has a fairy vibe to us. Really something special...

Anemone ranunculoides 'Papa'

A fantastic wild plant treasure for the light shade. These relatives of our native wood anemone bloom with bright, golden yellow flowers over a wreath of leaves. With this special variety, the flowers are completely filled, which means they bloom for a particularly long time. Over time, these special spring bloomers form dense carpets that move in in summer.

Anemonella


Anemonella thalictroides 'Roseum'

This variety has slightly larger flowers than the wild species in soft pink. Of the garden varieties of this forest plant, this is the hardiest with the best growth. Attractive, blue-green foliage in compact rosettes, from which the charming inflorescences rise with the onset of spring. Provided that the soil is fresh, you can enjoy flowering that lasts well into the summer. Very pretty and far too rarely planted.

Anemonopsis


Anemonopsis macrophylla

Anemonopsis represents an extraordinary beauty from the mountain forests of Japan. From a compact, fresh green leaf nest, up to 80 cm high, sturdy inflorescences with spherical flower buds rise from the end of June to August. These open to graceful flower bowls, which have another skirt in the middle. The color is a mixed tone of sky blue, light pink and mother of pearl. The skirt is again contrasted in amethyst color. There is no comparable perennial. As a location in the garden, as with many other Far Eastern garden treasures, a cool and shady place that still retains a certain amount of soil moisture is ideal. Completely hardy, unfortunately grows slowly like most rarities.

Angelica


Angelica anomala BSWJ10968

A wonderful new introduction from Japan. In contrast to most other angelica, this species is a long-lived perennial that carries a myriad of white umbel flowers on darkly colored and richly branched, tall stems. The flowering time is unusually long, from late June to early October. This perennial is particularly useful for the insect world, as umbelliferae are often overlooked as nectar and butterfly plants. The seed was collected in 2005 by Sue and Bleddyn Wynn-Jones in the mountain forests near Nagano in cool northwestern Japan.

Angelica gigas

The red angelica differs from all other species by its highly attractive, strong color. The stems and the flowers are colored in a peculiar, shiny dark red and attract everyone's attention. The plant grows to a height of 1 to 2 m, depending on the conditions, and blooms in the second year. Mostly monocarp but can bloom repeatedly. A slightly moist location in sun to partial shade is ideal.

Angelica ursina

This Angelica is a good-natured giant among the umbellifers. In the first few years, it forms an ever-growing clump of leaves made up of huge, multiply split leaf fronds. After about four to six years, a huge inflorescence, up to 3 m high, develops with a multitude of white flower umbels - a feast for all nectar seekers. On nutrient-poor soils it develops as a perennial, with a lot of nutrients it is monocarpic. Sun to semi-shade.

Anthriscus - Cowparsley


Anthriscus sylvestris 'Ravenswing'

This Purple Cowparsley is characterized already during the leaf shoot by its almost black foliage and carries the variety name "Ravenswing" completely right. From April to June it contrasts very impressively with the pale pink to white flower umbels. Can be conceived and should have the opportunity. In order to increase the longevity of the perennial plant, we recommend a complete pruning after the first seedset. For sun to partial shade in combination with light foliage colors. Insect plant.

Arnica


Arnica chamissonis

This is a medicinal plant native to North America with wound-healing powers that can be used in a similar way to our native mountain arnica. It remains smaller in all parts, but behaves much more robustly in the garden. It forms a relatively flat, spreading cushion from which stems up to 40 cm high with numerous yellow daisy flowers rise from June to August. Sunny location.

It is a lime-avoiding perennial for semi-shady, non-drying locations. Up to 50 cm high, stable stalks rise from a basal rosette, on which the large, yellow basket flowers with the strikingly long ray florets are carried. Anyone who prepares arnica tincture from the flowers should know that only external use promises healing; When used internally, it is toxic.

Arum


Since a visit to Beth Chatto, we have been fascinated by the effect of arums in winter beds. The foliage of most varieties is amazingly hardy and very ornamental. We have many varieties in propagation, but as with many rarities, slow growth is the reason they are not readily available on every corner. Over the next few years, more and more varieties will appear at this point. Keep going!

Arum creticum FCC-Form

This rarity is something special among the arums, because the flowers smell very pleasant and can be perceived from afar. When our mother plants are in flower, the entire greenhouse smells sweet and citrusy. This particularly hardy form of the Cretan arum stems from a high mountain location and was awarded a first-class certificate (hence FCC form) by the RHS due to its robustness. The foliage is dark to blue-green without markings, it always reminds us of the foliage of tropical callas. This clone does not set seed and can only be propagated by daughter bulbs, which is unfortunately slow, which is why there will always be a limited number of plants for sale.

Arum dioscorides var. spectabile

Cultivation of this Arum is worthwhile simply because of the intensively and strikingly colored flowers. The spathe is colored velvety black-purple at the base of the flower, this drawing dissolves into ever smaller spots and dots towards the top - a dramatic phenomenon. The spadix, i.e. the "rod" in the middle of the flower is black. The foliage is relatively unspectacular, but ornamental nonetheless, the leaves are triangular, arrow-shaped like many aroids. Sunny to at most half-shady places in the garden are suitable as a location.

Arum italicum ssp. italicum 'Chameleon'

This beautiful variety of the Italian arum has a very varied pattern and variegation, which create a very lively appearance overall. The leaf veins are less accentuated, but rather many small, lighter and darker variegated spots form a varied interplay. The leaf margin is wide and pure green. It is one of the oldest varieties, dating back to before 1990, and was recognized by the RHS with an AGM (Award of Garden Merit).

Arum italicum 'Pamela Harper'

This boldly marked arum variety originally came from the garden of Pamela Harper of Virginia. It was named and cultured by Ellen Hornig of the Seneca Hill Perennials Nursery. The foliage has a striking, heavy, white-green variegation that covers much of the leaf surface. The peripheral edge of the sheet, on the other hand, is kept in a deep green. The foliage is slightly rounder than the natural form, the variety grows very compact overall and forms a dense tuft of foliage. Like all A. italicum, the variety already sprouts in autumn, usually in October for us, and survives the winter green. The foliage lasts until flowering in spring, after which the plants retreat into the ground for summer dormancy.

A fantastic aroid with contrasting mottled leaves. In addition to a light, gray-green marbling, they show other, narrowly defined spots of dark purple color - a very lively sight. For us, the flowers that appear in spring are among the most beautiful of the arum plants. They are decorated with many purple spots inside the spathe and look extremely decorative. The foliage sprout in autumn and survives the winter, it can be affected by severe frosts. Beautiful perennial for semi-shady, spring-moist locations.

Asarum


Asarum are addictive perennials. Snapped one here and there or swapped it in and hey presto - you're already in the collector's fever. This genus has a huge variety of leaf markings and strange flowers, so it never gets boring. We started collecting before the nursery was founded, but it still takes a long time to produce at least 100 sales copies of a variety. Due to our long lead time, we will be able to offer one or the other species from our collection for sale year after year.

Asarum albomaculatum BSWJ 1726

A low evergreen perennial species with creeping elongated rhizomatous roots. Bearing 2-3 leaves per stem, which are heart shaped decoratively white-maculate on their upper surfaces, somewhat reminiscent of Cyclamen foliage. The brownish flowers are three lobed borne near the ground with wrinkled centres. From one of our collections gathered from the dark damp forest of Taipingshan, a mountainous area in northern Taiwan in November 1993 at around 1885m. Best grown in a fully to partly shaded site, in a moisture retentive acidic to neutral soil which is drained.
