N.O

ORIGANUM According to the RHS Index of Garden Plants, nearly every species we list is hardy to Zone 8 or 9. What a crock, who comes up with this stuff, winter in the mountains of Turkey at 2,000m doesn't sound like palm trees to me. The scary thing is most beginning gardeners and even some of the experienced ones actually take them seriously. (Want a chuckle; check out their Allium zone ratings;

Nolina texana

Nolina texana

A big, 4 foot by 4 foot mass of very narrow, grass-like leaves with large spikes of very showy white flowers. Very showy and cool, and out west where they can be kept very dry, even hardy to zone 5, though it doesn't have a chance in our wet winters.

Oenothera macrocarpa ssp. Fremontii

Oenothera macrocarpa ssp. Fremontii

These are plants we grew from seed, and they're quite variable. All of them have wonderfully silver leaves, though the intensity of it varies quite a bit, and the leaves range from wide spoon shapes to tiny narrow grass like forms. All are nicely compact low growers with large pale yellow flowers.

Omphloides verna 'Grandiflora'

Omphloides verna 'Grandiflora'

Navelwort? What does this grow in dirty bellybuttons? The sky blue flowers are rather pretty and it is less painful than a piercing, however we recommend troughs especially if you have an outie. What's next, Inverted Nipplewort?____ZONE 5

Ononis rotundifolia

Ononis rotundifolia

I can't tell you how excited Brigitta is to have this in the catalog again. We were down to one very sorry looking stock plant, but took a bunch of cuttings and we get to list it again! A very, very beautiful plant a couple feet tall with delicately textured foliage and large, extremely showy shell pink pea flowers veined with darker pink produced over most of the summer and into fall. The overall effect is exceptionally delicate and graceful, which belies the fact that it is actually as tough as nails, drought tolerant, and hardy. Zone 5.

Native from Spain to Italy, a sub shrubby legume that prefers lime and produces its red striped pink pea flowers from May to August. A bit lower growing than Ononis rotundifolia with a shrubby habit and single pink flowers in the leaf axils.

Ophiopogon (Liriope) japonicus 'Silver Dragon'

Ophiopogon (Liriope) japonicus 'Silver Dragon'

Stupendous white variegation, this came to us as an Ophiopogon however it flowered this year and is clearly a liriope, still a knockout in combination with the black Ophiopogon, it seems to be a strong grower however its hardiness has yet to be tested by a hard winter here.____ZONE 6

Ophiopogon japonicum 'Torafu'

Ophiopogon japonicum 'Torafu'

An unusual plant with irregular horizontal yellow banding after the fashion of Zebra Grass if it were a bit more regular it would be stunning, definitely one to save seed on.____ZONE 6

Ophiopogon japonicum compactum

Ophiopogon japonicum compactum

A treasure courtesy of John from H&H, this thing is tiny with dense tufts of grassy foliage only a couple inches tall and short scapes of bell shaped flowers followed by heavy crops of ornamental blue berries, (not to be confused with blueberries); its cute enough for a trough and sure to elicit comment.____ZONE 6

A nice dwarf variegated plant we got from Yinger a number of years ago if it ever had a name we have lost it.____ZONE 6

Ophiopogon planiscapa nigrescens

Ophiopogon planiscapa nigrescens

Nearly black foliage, this has been around but remains as classy now as when it was first introduced, it is beautiful in combination with 'Silver Dragon'. It is hardy for us but takes a beating in hard winters and vanished completely at 29F.____ZONE 5
