Sideritis phlomoides

Sideritis phlomoides

Brigitta wanted to not list this because it looked too much like a Phlomis; Mojmir collected it from the limestones of Toros Dagh at 2,300m, 20-40cm plants with gray- green leaves, dense heads of yellow flowers on 10-20cm stems, I think they are right.____ZONE 5

Silphium integrifolium

Silphium integrifolium

Love siphium, but don't have space for the really GIANT ones? This one is merely 3-5 feet tall, with the same large, dramatic leaves and relatively large yellow sunflower-like blooms in mid to late summer.Interesting fact, while googling about I found reference to silphium producing a fragrant resin while in flower that can be used as chewing gum. Who knew? Zone 5 Joseph

Silphium lacinatum

Silphium lacinatum

Compass plant, too cheap to lay out a thousand bucks for a dashboard GPS, not to worry just plant this in a dirty floor mat and your navigation problems are over, just tap on the flower and put the petal to the metal (it helps if you are as tall as that Chinese basketball guy).____ZONE 5

Silphium perfoliatum

Silphium perfoliatum

Massive perennial, reaching up to 8 feet with big yellow daisy flowers in the late summer. Though, of course, you'll probably need a ladder to get up and appreciate them. Called the cup plant, because the leaves form a neat little cup around the stem, which is rather cool, and after rains will hold water that birds will use as bird baths. Not a plant for a small garden, but just the thing if you need something big and coarse and over-the-top. Zone 3

Smilacina racemosa

Smilacina racemosa

Husky woodland plants of considerable beauty, the arching stems of False Solomon's Seal carry fluffy white flowers in plume like terminal racemes followed by berries like vitrified drops of bright blood in autumn. Smilacina too has some Asian counterparts, which are great garden plants.____ZONE 4

Smilacina stellata Dwarf ex Newfoundland

Smilacina stellata Dwarf ex Newfoundland

Maianthemum stellatum var. crassum An amazing little thing glaucous blue almost succulent foliage on plants just a few inches high, it wanders around in the garden making a tuft here and a tuft there and is extremely cute. I had admired this in Fred Case's garden for years and finally begged a piece several years ago. We have slowly built up stock and finally have enough to offer. I consider it one of the choicest plants in our woodland garden.____ZONE 4

Solidago cutleri

Solidago cutleri

Horribly confused with Solidago brachystachys and Solidago virgaurea by any name it is a cute little dwarf golden rod. It is an eastern American tufted species found at altitude with showy corymbs of yellow flowers atop short stems in late summer.____ZONE 5

Spigelia marilandica

Spigelia marilandica

A unique looking and hardy Eastern American member of the Loganacaea, they prefer a moist humus rich soil and a bit of shade; flowers, which appear in mid to early summer, are narrow trumpets to 5cm scarlet outside and yellow inside with a constriction just before they flare out.

Stachys lavendulifolia

Stachys lavendulifolia

By far my favorite Stachys, these are from Mojmir's collections at 1700m on the sandy hills near Horsan, Turkey; flowers are mauve in whorls up the stems, subtended by dissected fuzzy bracts giving a smoky appearance from a distance. A legendary plant and difficult, at least in the Mid West, it detests too much wet, melting without warning, definitely not for beginners.
