Pardanthopsis dichotoma

Pardanthopsis dichotoma

We finally got around to propagating a decent batch of this beautiful Irid. Exotic purplish flowers borne on branching scapes with falls larger than the standards, ivory spotted and striped maroon at the base, flecked purple in the center with the claw striped purple. They open rapidly in the late afternoon, so quickly that you can actually watch them unfurl, although they generally seem to wait until your back is turned; once pollinated the petals twist together into a cool little rope, several open each day for many weeks in mid to late summer.____ZONE 4

Paxistima canbyi nana

Paxistima canbyi nana

One of those understated plants that never steals the scene, but always looks good and makes everything around it look good too. Tidy, compact, spreader, maybe 3 or 4 inches tall with small, glossy, evergreen leaves. Will take dry shade, which few plants will, and is a nice alternative to things like pachysandra or ivy. Native, but not common, to the Eastern US, mostly in Appalachia. Zone 4

Peltoboykinia tellimoides

Peltoboykinia tellimoides

A nearly monotypic genus there are only two closely related species, tellimoides is a very rare thing confined to a few wooded mountains in Honshu, the similar P. wantanabei is found on Shikoku and Kyushu. A large-leafed woodland saxifrage, foliage is a bit reminiscent of Darmera, however it bears cymes of bell shaped yellow saxifrage flowers on 2-3' stems in early summer. It has proven to be fully hardy here with no special protection; indeed, for such a rare woodlander it is virtually indestructible.____ZONE 4

Petalostemon candidum

Petalostemon candidum

Now more properly Dalea candidum. A white flowered bush clover with all the virtues of the more common Petlostemon purpureum/Dalea purpurea but with white flowers that are a bit easier on the eye for people like me who have issues with magenta. Tidy mound of finely cut foliage to about two feet tall, and dense heads of tiny white flowers produced with abandon over much of the summer. Impressively drought tolerant once established thanks to the deep root system. Apparently, the leaves were used for tea and the seeds ground for food by American Indians, so even if for some strange reason you don't find it attractive, you can find other uses for it. Zone 3

Petalostemon purpureum

Petalostemon purpureum

Now more properly Dalea purpurea, this is an important nitrogen fixing component of native prairies. Forms an impressively deep tap root which gives it incredible drought resistance once established, though remember it takes some time for new plantings to get rooted down, so don't test that drought tolerance too early. Flowers are an incredibly bright shade of purple-pink, and arranged in dense little cones that remind me a bit of sanguisorba, and bloom profusely over a long period in the summer. When not in bloom, the finely cut foliage is quite attractive as well. Growth habit is fairly tidy and compact, reaching 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. This native plant has a lot of virtues, and no obvious flaws unless you object to the intensity of the flower color. Not sure why it isn't more widely grown. Zone 3

Petasites japonicus 'Gigantea'

Petasites japonicus 'Gigantea'

Some of the largest leaves from a winter hardy perennial here, looks crazy and out of place in Michigan, which I love. When happy it will run AGGRESSIVELY, and it is often happy, so let it loose in a big bog where it can spread out and be amazing without bothering anyone. Zone 5
