Achillea ageratifolia (Greek Yarrow)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

This yarrow is quite different from the large fast spreading wild yarrow we have along the road sides. It enjoys the edges of the rock gardens as it forms a low mound of silver grey leaves with white flowers on taller stems.

Aconitum napellus (Monkshood)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Dark glossy foliage and dark blue flowers are striking additions to Alaskan gardens. Related to our native monkshood is a good indication of the hardiness and ease of growing. Tall plants are hard to find but this 4 footer will fit that requirement. There are many hybrids including bi-color that also do well for us. Combine with candelabra primula, delphinium (related), thalictrum.

Ajuga reptans ''Black Scallop'' (Bugleweed)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Black foliage and spiky blue flowers (which appear in early summer) make a dramatic contrast. 'Black Scallop' thrives in full sun, which intensifies the black color. In full sun, the plant produces numerous runners, which should be thinned to prevent crown rot. In large plantings, you can run a rotary mower with a bagger attachment over the patch to control crowding and keep the foliage fresh. In mixed container plantings, the spilling habit of the plant makes it a standout choice. -Ron Smith, Regional Picks: Upper Plains, Fine Gardening issue #120 -

One of my absolute favorites for those hard places, such as under trees or along pathways. The glossy foliage will have more color in sun.

Alchemilla alpina (Lady's Mantle)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

I love the standard species for bouquets and large gardens but this little guy is perfect for smaller gardens especially for rockeries. The tiny chartreuse flowers float above ground-hugging uniquely shaped glossy leaves. I'm trying this one with another mat former, the new Ajuga reptans 'Dixie Chip' for a border.

The Swan Series of columbines have been bred for their uniform size, abundant large flowers and long blooming period. The 'Swan Burgundy and White' columbines features strong stems holding beautiful deep burgundy-red flowers with backward pointing spurs and white centers.

Aquilegia is especially lovely when allowed to naturalize in shady, woodland borders. They also have excellent potential as cut flowers, lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase.

Armeria maritima 'Armada White' (Sea Pinks)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

A shaggy tuft of a plant, ‘Armada White’ is a white-flowered selection of an evergreen species native to Europe and the Mediterranean region as fast east as Turkey. This sea thrift grows year round in mild climates as a clump of narrow dark-green leaves. In early spring upright stems rise from the clump in profusion and bloom at their tips with a pompom of small white flowers that last almost to summer. It is a charming, extravagant show for a small plant and can be prolonged to summer by deadheading.

Armeria maritima 'Splendens' (Thrift)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Armeria is an excellent ground cover plant for areas of full sun. It does well on poor soil and is an excellent choice for rocky areas where it can be stuffed into cracks and exist on very little soil. It is perfect for gravel or maritima garden and for gardens designed as xeriscapes or rock gardens. It can take light foot traffic and makes a neat, decorative edge along a garden path or down garden steps. Armeria maritima is an ideal rock garden plant and one that should always be included if choice is restricted.

Armeria maritime 'Bloodstone' (Sea Pinks)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Bright purplish-pink, ball-shaped flower clusters are produced on thin, leafless stalks held high above the tight mounds of evergreen, grassy green foliage. These little wonder blooms from midspring thru early summer. As its name implies, Sea Pinks are found naturally along coastlines where few other plants can handle the high salt concentration. Inland, this attribute makes them useful for planting along sidewalks or driveways that are salted in winter. They are also good candidates for rock gardens, troughs, or between pavers.

Asparagus officinalis 'Jersey Giant' (Asparagus)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Yes we can grow asparagus in Alaska and yes, they are hardy. And of course, they are tasty and good for you. If you get to the greenhouse before we pot them up, we have a great price we can pass along. Consistent yield 2-3 times more spears then 'Martha Washington'. Adapted to temperate and cool climates.

Asparagus plants are monoecious—each individual plant is either male or female. Some varieties of asparagus, such as ‘Jersey Knight’ and ‘Jersey Giant’ produce all male or primarily male plants, so they’re more productive—male plants yield more harvestable shoots because they don’t have to invest energy in producing seeds. Choose an all-male variety if high yield is your primary goal. If you like to experiment, you may also want to grow an heirloom variety or a purple-stalked variety like ‘Purple Passion’. With an all-male variety, twenty-five plants are usually adequate for a household of four; plant double that amount for standard varieties Select and prepare your asparagus bed with care; this crop will occupy the same spot for 20 years or more. It can tolerate some shade, but full sun produces more vigorous plants and helps minimize disease. Asparagus does best in lighter soils that warm up quickly in spring and drain well; standing water will quickly rot the roots. Prepare a planting bed about 4 feet wide by removing all perennial weeds and roots and digging in plenty of aged manure or compost.

A member of Astilbe chinensis(Chinese Astilbe). A later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer.

Though garden performance is far superior in moist soils, members of this species are moderately drought tolerant.

Creamy white plumes turn light pink as they age. Bushy foliage appears slightly marbled with green and silver when it's young, then turns solid green as it matures. Strong grower; blooms prolifically
