Light Shade to ShadeZone: 3-7 9" tall Origin: Europe, Asia
Open House/Web-Only! Here's a great plant for our customers further north. We've always loved lily-of-the-valley, especially the variegated forms, but they are painfully slow in our southeast heat and wimpy winters.

Named after the famed English garden, Convallaria 'Hardwick Hall' is a vigorous clone with 9" tall, glaucous leaves edged with a dramatic golden border. In spring, the deer-resistant patches are adorned with fragrant white flowers...a superb deciduous groundcover for a wide range of soil conditions. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #06826

Coreopsis major (Whorled-leaf Tickseed)

Sun to Part SunZone: 5-8 36" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! From New York south to Florida, you are liable to run across Coreopsis major in open dry woodlands. So, why is it not grown in everyone's garden? Probably because it looks like crap (pardon my French) in the woods. Put a plant in full sun, and it becomes a killer perennial. The spreading rootstock makes a 5' clump in 5 years of sturdy 3' tall stems clothed in whorled green leaves. From late spring through midsummer, the drought-tolerant clumps are topped with 2" yellow daisies...simply superb! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #06825

Corydalis leucanthema 'Silver Spectre' (Silver Spectre False Bleeding Heart)

Light Shade to ShadeZone: 5-8a, at least 12" tall Origin: China
Open House/Web-Only! This 1996 collection of plantsman Dan Hinkley comes from a rocky creek bank at 6,400' elevation in Sichuan, China. This has proved to be a great corydalis for the Southeast where many corydalis fear to tread. The lacy, olive-green foliage emerges in mid winter with a subtle silver-wash central pattern. In very early spring, the clumps are topped with short spikes of light lavender flowers with a dark purple lip. In very hot summers, the plants will go summer-dormant, but will reemerge in fall. For us, this has made a nice 5' wide patch in 5 years and shows no sign of slowing down. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05790

Cremastra appendiculata (Appendiculate Cremastra Orchid)

Light Shade to ShadeZone: 6-9 12" tall Origin: China, Japan, Taiwan
Open House/Web-Only! This Asian terrestrial orchid has proven easy to grow as long as you give it humus-rich, moist well-drained organic soils. In appearance, it's like a giant version of our native cranefly orchid (Tipularia discolor). The 1' long x 2" wide green leaves emerge in the fall and remain until April when they being to go dormant as the flower spikes appear. The 1' tall flower spikes are topped in late April/early May (NC) with small mauvy lavender pendant tubular flowers...very cute, but certainly not what I'd call showy. To quote plantsman John Elsley, "For those who like this kind of thing, this is just the kind of thing they would like." Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08914

Open House/Web-Only! This amazing plant has graced old Southern gardens and was popularized by Dr. Thad Howard of Texas who discovered the plant in the 1960s in Alamo Village, Texas. The fast-growing clumps of glossy, light green foliage are topped continuously through the summer with 20" tall stalks of large, spidery, fragrant flowers of pale pink. Although no one is sure of its origin, Dr. Howard suggests that Crinum americanum is one of the parents. Whatever combined to make this hybrid, it's a real winner in the garden. Pot size: 3 qt.

Crinum bulbispermum 'Sacramento' (Sacramento Crinum Lily)

SunZone: 6-10 36" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! Crinum 'Sacramento' has a mysterious background, but is reportedly a Les Hannibal cross between two forms of Crinum bulbispermum, one of which originated in the town of Kimberly, South Africa. Crinum bulbispermum 'Sacramento' makes an often solitary, 3' wide clump of arching blue-green foliage topped, starting in late spring, with 3' tall stalks of flowers that have particularly nice red-and-white striped, anise-fragranced flowers. Since Crinum 'Sacramento' rarely offsets, it is produced only as seedlings which come true to type. For us in NC, it is the earliest crinum to flower, often producing the first scape in late April.

SunZone: 7b-10, at least 36" tall Origin: S. Africa
Open House/Web-Only! Crinum buphanoides (looks like a boophone...not related to a cell phone) comes from the northern regions of South Africa where it can be found growing in areas that are swampy during the summer months and dry in the winter. The large rosettes of fleshy glaucous leaves are often heavily rippled...a reason to grow the plant even if it didn't flower. In summer, the huge flower spikes are adorned with up to 50 white, sweetly-fragrant, star-shaped flowers, highlighted by purple stamens...similar to Crinum erubescens. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #06303

This is still considered one of the finest crinum lilies for the home garden. This vigorously multiplying hybrid (possibly C. 'JC Harvey' x C. scabrum) was hybridized in Florida during the 1920s by Louis Bosanquet and named after his wife. C. 'Ellen Bosanquet' begins flowering in mid-June and continues through most of the summer. The large, reddish-purple flowers, on 2' stalks, emit a delightful spicy fragrance. The rosette of wavy, glossy, tropical-looking foliage is a great addition to the garden, even without the flowers. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #02193

Crinum erubescens (Swamp Lily)

Sun to Part SunZone: 7-10, at least 30" tall Origin: S. America
Open House/Web-Only! One of the classic passalong plants of the deep South is Crinum erubescens...the South American equivalent of our native (and much more difficult to grow) Crinum americanum. The wide, glossy green leaves, to 30" long, form a large clump that actually spreads about by means of a large, underground rhizome. In moist soil, Crinum erubescens will make a large colony, while it is more restrained in normal garden soil. The clumps are topped with 3' tall red stalks of sweetly scented, spidery white flowers that continue all summer, from July to frost. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #03582

Open House/Web-Only! Once again we are able to offer the wonderful Les Hannibal dwarf crinum. This cross of Crinum moorei x Crinum americanum is the fastest-multiplying crinum that we have ever seen. The glossy, green, strap-like leaves remain attractive all season, unlike those of some of the hybrids. In our area, expect a heavy flowering show of large, deep pink flowers, held 1' above the foliage in midsummer, followed by a rebloom in early fall...a great plant for smaller gardens!

Crinum 'Improved Peach Blow' (Improved Peach Blow Crinum Lily)

SunZone: 7-10, at least 42" tall Origin: Hybrid
NEW! Although it sounds like a fruity drug cocktail, Crinum 'Improved Peach Blow' is actually a Pat Malcolm hybrid of Crinum erubescens x Crinum album. The 3.5' tall sturdy stalks are topped, starting in mid-June (NC), with large outfacing flowers possessing an intoxicating fragrance (gardeners under 18 must be supervised). The carmine buds open white, then take on a light pink blush toward the end of the petals, which is complemented nicely by the pink petal backs. In form, it is similar to Crinum 'Mrs. James Hendry', C. 'Jubilee', and of course, the original C. 'Peach Blow' but with sturdier flower scapes. Crinum 'Improved Peach Blow' is still extremely rare and our quantities are quite limited. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08026

SunZone: 7b-10, at least 24" tall Origin: Hybrid
NEW! We are very pleased to offer this fast-offsetting crinum hybrid that was discovered by the late plant explorer, Thad Howard in Veracruz, Mexico. Thad found this plant growing in a naturalized population of the East African C. zeylanicum adjacent to a population of the native swamp-growing, C. loddigesianum (similar to C. americanum). Thad named it 'Marisco' (which means seafood) to commemorate the region's seafood industry. C. 'Marisco' makes a relatively small 3' wide clump (by crinum standards) of 30" long strap-like green leaves. The clump is adorned sporadically through the summer with 2' tall stalks of large fragrant white flowers with each petal highlighted by a central burgundy stripe. Moist soils will produce the best flowering. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08442

This hard-to-find but wonderful 1962 Thad Howard hybrid is a result of a cross of Crinum 'Seven Sisters' (C. americanum x bulbispermum) crossed back to Crinum bulbispermum var. album. The result is a rock-hardy, thick, green leaf clump that bears 24" tall stalks of clusters of large, pure white flowers with a deliciously sweet scent. For us, C. 'Ollene' flowers sporadically from early summer into fall. I cannot imagine why Crinum 'Ollene' is not grown in every southern garden. C. 'Ollene' was named in honor of Ollene Bundrant, wife of famed crinum breeder Luther Bundrant. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #03622

Sun to Part SunZone: 7-10 24" tall Origin: Hybrid
This much sought-after crinum lily originated in 1983 as a cross of C. procerum 'Splendens' x an unknown C. bulbispermum (or hybrid). It was discovered as a seedling in the garden of the late Marcia Clint Wilson by Texan Scott Ogden. The dark purple reflexed foliage makes a dramatic clump, topped in late spring and again in fall with 18" spikes of rosy pink flowers. Because of its C. bulbispermum parentage, C. 'Sangria' is much more winter hardy than other purple leaf crinums. Most of the material that is sold as C. 'Sangria' is simply C. procerum 'Splendens'. Thanks to Scott Ogden for providing us propagation stock from the original plant. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04188

Open House/Web-Only! Thanks to Scott Ogden for sharing this wonderful Luther Burbank hybrid, which he described as "arguably the most lovely crinum ever bred." We've finally got it propagated so we can spread this plant far and wide. Crinum 'White Queen' is a cross of Crinum x powellii 'Alba' and Crinum macowanii, which should give it very good hardiness...probably into Zone 6. The very long, wide leaves make an imposing, but slowly offsetting, clump topped in late spring with 3' tall spikes of large, pure white bells that emerge sideways then become pendent.
