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 fruticosa glauca 'Hobe Licht'

Oenothera fruticosa glauca 'Hobe Licht'

Short German selection of this Eastern US native (it is kind of crazy how many US native plants have to go to Europe to be appreciated and selected). Only a foot or so tall, with very profuse, bright yellow flowers over a long period in during the summer. Like most oenothera, tough and easy to grow, sometimes to a fault. Zone 4

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.

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

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
