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.

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.

Hybridized for their compact habit and large, long spurred flowers, members of the "Songbird Series" are among the most showy of all columbines. The most unique feature of the plants in this series is the way in which the flowers face skyward, not nodding like many other varieties, maximizing their full visual potential. This selection produces clusters of large 3", light blue and white bicolor blossoms.

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.

This Astilbe is useful for brightening up the shade garden as well as providing beautiful long-stemmed flowers for fresh and dried bouquets. The foliage emerges bright chartreuse yellow in spring with a tinge of red pigment in the newest leaves. It provides a bright spot of color and lacy texture to the shade garden in spring and then greens up a bit by late summer. Very tall, strong, blush red stems carry rose pink flower panicles in midsummer. ‘

Needs fertile soil, and consistant moisture. Plant with dark leafed hostas, ferns, and Ligularia Marie Crawford

Very dark red buds open to deep red flowers with rose highlights. The plumes are narrow and upright. The bronze-red foliage turns mid-green in summer. This is a good spiky selection to add interest to the garden. Despite all the books, plant this one in full sun or you will be disappointed. Shade is not this guy's friend. It's hard to find a true red but his one definitely is red.
