Disporum flavens

Disporum flavens

Disporum flavens      I'm Back!      Z 5 - 8      open shade

[Yellow Fairy Bells] Returning after a five year absence from the catalog, these are divisions from my garden and in short supply. For blooms this disporum is at the top of my favorites list. In spring there are bright butter-yellow tubular blooms reaching over an inch in length. The pollinated blooms become blue-black drupes in late summer. Foliage reaches about thirty to thirty-two inches in height in my garden. Stout stems are branched and on occasion the branches have branches. Heavily veined leaves are over two inches across and usually over 4 inches in length, becoming strongly ovate. A very tight clumper which is well behaved.

Transplant: Ordinary decent woodland soil suits disporum just fine as they are not fussy plants. Mine is growing in heavy amended clay in the company of epimediums and ferns along a stone lined path.

From 5 pint containers. Very Limited Supply

Dicentra canadensis

Dicentra canadensis     Native     Z 4 - 9     shade

[Squirrel corn]  Foliage is finely-divided and reaches only six to eight inches in height and spread.  Blooms are like white heart-shaped lockets on a line as each bloom hangs individually from short stalks on the main succulent-looking brittle stem.  Name comes from the small yellow tubers in clusters.

Transplant:   Squirrel corn should be planted very shallow in soil high in leaf mold and rich humus in shade.  Forms early-blooming colonies where it is happy.  Certainly looks good with Primula veris in my garden.

From 1 quart containers.

Hypoxis hirsuta

Hypoxis hirsuta     Native     Z 5 -      part shade

[Yellow Star Grass] This is a native from dry woods and a favorite of mine. The plant resembles grass that needs a shave. The tiny little plant is only about 5 or 6 inches in height with softly hairy blades. The bright yellow star-shaped blooms are on fuzzy stems beginning in early spring and continue through summer. With moisture the plants will occasionally re-bloom throughout late summer.


Transplant: Mine are at the base of a dwarf hemlock, among limestone rocks. They will seed about a bit to form small open colonies. They make a fine rock garden plant which is easily grown. Small tuber about the size of your little finger nail.

Trillium catesbaei

Trillium catesbaei     Native     Z 4 -     shade

[Nodding rose wake-robin ] Foliage is elliptic or oval, usually with five distinct main veins branching from the base. The flower stalk is bent so the flower is horizontal or directed downward. Flower petals are pink, about one and one half inches in length. Height can vary from eight to twenty inches in maturity. Catesbyi is native to TN, VA, GA, and the Carolinas.
 

Transplant: The nodding rose wake-robin has a preference for acidic soil. I keep this species in a raised bed since my soil is only slightly acidic to neutral. Transplant the rhizome abut two to three inches deep horizontal to the soil line with feeder roots downward. Cover and mulch lightly with chopped leaves, pine needles or pine bark fines.

Trillium cuneatum

Trillium cuneatum     Native     Z 5 -     part shade - shade

[Large toadshade ] This is one of the most underrated and underused trillium among the sessile species. Its large leaves are highly mottled and can take on a silver and black effect in some forms. Blooms are very rich maroon-purple. Can reach sixteen inches in height and over that in foliage width. They also form clumps in a relatively short period of time. Do plant a drift for a super show.


Transplant: Transplant the rhizome abut two to three inches deep horizontal to the soil line with feeder roots downward. Cover and mulch lightly with chopped leaves, pine needles or pine bark fines. Trilliums go dormant in July, so pair up with companions which stick around until frost, such as Iris cristata and Uvularia.

Trillium flexipes 'Jumbo Size'

Trillium flexipes 'Jumbo Size'     Native     Z 4 -     shade

[Bent trillium]  These are "granddaddy"  rhizomes, exceptional in size for instant maturity in the garden.  Flexipes has flowers which are usually found bent to beneath the leaves and flowers are usually, but not always, white.  The ovary, however, is always white.  Bent trillium is a larger trillium overall at about twenty inches in height. T. flexipes is one of our local species.

Transplant:  Transplant the rhizome about two to three inches deep horizontal to the soil line with feeder roots downward.  Cover and mulch lightly with chopped leaves, pine needles or pine bark fines.  Mine are with Doll's eyes (Actaea), ferns, Dicentra eximia and Pulmonaria.

From 5 pint containers.
