Dictamnus albus (fraxinella) purpureus

Dictamnus albus (fraxinella) purpureus

Gas plant, glandular hairs emit an aromatic gas that can be set ablaze on still muggy summer nights, please check for Giant Swallowtail larva first or you may barbeque your bird droppings (Dictamnus is a first choice munchie here). Racemes of showy flowers in spring followed by attractive explosively dehiscent seed heads, Dictamnus can shoot shiny black missiles across a room. Very long lived in the garden they resent disturbance, do not move large plants; germination of dry stored seed is complicated by hard seed coats and secondary dormancies, limiting most commercial production. This is the first large crop we have had in years the result in part of introducing new genetic material from the Caucasus. Germination improved greatly, colors could be anything from purple to white. Like many rutaceous plants they may cause photodermatitus in sensitive people. Rue does this to me but Dictamnus has never given me trouble and I am always looking for caterpillars on it.____ZONE 4

Dicentra spectabilis 'Gold Heart'

Dicentra spectabilis 'Gold Heart'

A brilliant gold leaved version of the always lovely bleeding heart. I personally feel the pink flowers clash a wee bit with the leaves, but the foliage display is so bright and striking the rest of the year that it is worth putting up with. Tend to go dormant in the summer if too hot and dry, so keep well watered to keep those leaves up as long as possible. This plant has, actually, had a name change recently, the proper genus now being Lamprocapnos... I understand and honest appreciated, as annoying as it can be, taxonomists getting more acurate information about how plants are related. I just wish that when they got a new name they'd put SOME priority on them being something I can remember. And spell. And pronounce. Zone 5

Deinanthe bifida pink ex Kii Peninsula Japan

Deinanthe bifida pink ex Kii Peninsula Japan

Vigorous and extremely free flowering, far exceeding any blue flowered form that I have ever grown. Essentially a hydrangea that dies down to a woody crown each fall; this shade-loving gem deserves much broader garden exposure.____ZONE 5
