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.

Allium senescens 'Glaucum' (Ornamental Onion)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

The common name comes from the odor of onions when the leaves are bruised. This dainty guy will always have a place in my gardens. The little transparent "purse" that holds the blooms before they open is just oh so sweet. Mauve pink balls of flowers float above the grass-like foliage. A bulb that is easy to divide and clumps quickly. Likes sandy, well drained soils.

Clumps nicely

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.

Astilbe chinesis 'Milk and Honey' (False Spirea)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

A member of Astilbe chinensis(Chinese Astilbe). A later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. Foliage is deeply incised, coarsely textured, and often bronze-green in color. Flowers are borne on narrow, branched panicles. 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

Silver heart-shaped leaves are attractive long after the wispy soft blue forget me not look flowers are gone. Mulch in fall. Combine with daffodils, Dicentra or Doronicum.

A sight to behold! The leaves of 'Jack Frost' are intricately detailed with a crackle-like finish. Though the leaves are dark green, they have a heavily frosted overlay which allows only the green veining to show through. From mid to late spring, baby blue, forget-me-not type blossoms are held in clusters several inches above the shimmering foliage. The effect is breathtaking.

Cerastium tomentosum 'Yo Yo' (Snow in Summer)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

I'm planting this one just because I smile when I say the name. But for the rest of you, 'Yo Yo' is very easy to grow in almost any soils. The small woolly gray/silver leaves form a low carpet smothering out most weeds. This new variety is a bit more restrained and compact than the species. The flowers are the absolutely whitest flower ever, almost luminous. Combine with spring bulbs, or for opposite foliage type, Ajuga 'Dixie Chip'. Or just use this beauty alone in a border.

One of the absolute best plants for bordering paths or edging gardens. Heavy bloomer with bright white flowers and silver, fern-like foliage makes grand mounds.
