Alchemilla erythropoda

Alchemilla erythropoda

A bit reminiscent of A. alpina of the 300 or so species this gem from the Carpathians ranks as one of the best. The foliage is very neat and the display of yellow flowers is among the best.____ZONE 4

Althaea cannabina

Althaea cannabina

With a name like hemp leaved marshmallow it is hard to go wrong... In most respects similar to the common marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) but with slightly smaller flowers of a intense, pure, sugar pink, and, of course, the fine textured leaves look like pot. Which is always fun. Plant some where your more uptight, less botanically aware neighbors can see it and watch them freak out. An easy, carefree perennial, getting as tall as an average sized person and blooming for a long period over much of the summer. Zone 4

Anemarrhena asphodeloides

Anemarrhena asphodeloides

A very unusual plant, residing by itself in its very own monotypic family. Forms a tight clump of vaguely iris-like rhizomes, but the above ground effect is that of an ornamental grass. Narrow grassy leaves about a foot tall, and 2-3 foot spikes of tiny tiny little purply flowers above that in late summer. Apparently widely used in Chinese medicine, googling it will turn up a lot of pretty questionable herbal supplement products made from this plant. Never going to render anyone speechless with its beauty, but well worth growing as you would an ornamental grass. Zone 5

A choice monotypic woodlander from Japan with waxy pink cup shaped Anemone flowers that are generally whitish in the interior and borne in lax panicles on blackish 40-80cm stems; the nodding flowers are a welcome addition to the late summer woodland garden.

Antennaria doica rubra

Antennaria doica rubra

Pink pussy toes! How terribly adorable. A low creeper for hot, dry locations topped with clusters of tiny spherical rosy pink flowers in late spring. Hardy to zone 1 by some accounts. In other words, cold won't kill it, provided it has good drainage and doesn't rot.______Zone 1
