Disporopsis - Disporum

DISPORUM & DISPOROPSIS With elegant arching stems, they are lovely interspersed with drifts of ferns and trilliums. The Disporums and Disporopsis, along with their Polygonatum and Smilacina cousins form an integral part of the woodland garden. All except Disporopsis have both Asian and American counterparts, dating back to a time before the continents drifted. We were amazed to find that even the tropical looking evergreen Disporopsis survived unprotected.

Disporopsis arisanensis

Disporopsis arisanensis

These came from Dan with no collection data, he described them as forming colonies of 8” stems, evergreen with the typical nodding creamy bells, and warns of confusion with the larger D. fusca–picta from Sichuan. I admit to confusion, our plants have huge rhizomes as thick as your thumb that have not only cracked their stockpots but taken to climbing up and out of the pots, looking very green and photosynthetic and altogether almost epiphytic, not at all the demure little 8” thing I had expected, mind you I'm not complaining these are cool.____ZONE 6

Disporopsis perneyi

Evergreen Solomon's seal, really, we don't make these things up. This is another of the cool new woodland plants coming out of China of late. A rare form with large creamy white flowers tipped in purplish black in the leaf axils, this can take a lot of shade. Thinking of buying yet another Hosta that probably looks pretty much like a zillion others, show some backbone, or at least a notochord and purchase Disporopsis instead.____ZONE 5

Disporum flavum (flavens?)

Disporum flavum (flavens?)

Solomon's Seal-like woodlander, the yellow flowers are among the largest and showiest of any we have seen. They came to us as flavum but the taxonomy of the cultivated Disporums is a mess; very choice in any event.____ZONE 4
