ZIZIPHORA Easy and long lived these central Asian mints are popular tea plants, and coming home to a hot mug of Ziziphora tea with a pat of butter floating on top after a hard day of wolf hunting on horseback, lugging a fifteen pound Berkut (the big golden eagles they hunt with) is Mongol tradition. You can now enjoy this treat at home, minus the yurts, Berkut, rancid Yak butter and so forth, or better still just plant them in your rock garden and enjoy the flowers and daydream about the eagle you will never get to hunt with.

Zauschneria garrettii

The hardiest of all the Zauschnerias, these are from Bradshaw's offerings from Utah at 6300', the masses of scarlet orange flowers are amazing, I do not understand why this is not more widely grown.

Zizia aptera

Zizia aptera

Yellow flowers in attractive umbels held on 3 foot stems. Basal leaves are large, glossy, and round, while those on the flower spikes are divided. Like most umbels, the flowers are a bonanaza for all sorts of small, beautiful bees and wasps, and the foliage is good feed for Black swallowtails butterflies. Well worth growing for both you and native insects. Zone 4.

Yucca gloriosa 'Variegata'

Yucca gloriosa 'Variegata'

A very beautiful yucca with wide geen leaves (with a fairly vicious spine on the end) and broad white variagation on the leaf margins. Particularly lovely, I think, in the cooler weather of fall when the white variegation takes on a pinkish flush. Eventually reaches 2-3 feet wide, and slowly develops a trunk that can reach several feet tall. Sadly on the tender side, probably only zone 7.
