(Claret Cup Flag, Harlequin Blueflag)

A lovely form of the Northern blue flag iris, 'Claret Cup' adds diversity to the wild and water garden with its unusually-colored flowers of rich, violet-red.

Occurring naturally in bogs and swamps, Iris versicolor is found over a broad range from Canada to Virginia and west to Minnesota. The thick, fleshy roots (rhizomes) of this cold-hardy perennial produce long, narrow, upright foliage with a somewhat arching form. Beautiful, violet-blue flowers bloom on tall stems in late spring.

(Butternut)

A fine hardwood tree, butternut is most revered for its fall crops of nuts with oil-rich, edible nutmeats that have a buttery texture and sweet flavor. It also has fine wood, which is hard, slow to rot and valued for furniture making and wood carving. This medium-sized deciduous tree is native to the northeastern quarter of the United States and the far southeastern section of Canada. It develops a broad crown comprised of upright, somewhat sparse branches and is slow growing.

(Common Walnut, English Walnut, Hartley Walnut)

The highly productive ‘Hartly’ is one of the most common trees for walnut production. Its nuts are large and protected by attractive, smooth shells. It is an older cultivar that’s still popular because of its bumper crops of nuts.

(Common Liverwort, Marchantia)

A low-growing mat of green growing in a sunny location is usually a telltale sign of the common liverwort. It looks somewhat similar to the closely-related mosses and hornworts. The common liverwort is a primitive, non-vascular plant native to all parts of the world, from the tropics to the polar tundra, in a wide array of habitats from cliffs, heath lands, bogs and forests. Liverworts do not flower, but reproduce with spores or by developing more vegetative growth. They also have two physical forms...

(Chinese Juniper)

Chinese juniper is a variable evergreen tree or shrub native to China and Japan. The needle-like or scale-like leaves are green to blue-green and usually hold their color in winter. The small, berry-like fruit (on female plants) ripens from whitish blue to dark brown. Chinese juniper prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Many of its cultivars are common in gardens, where they are used for screening, windbreaks and hedging.

(Armstrong's Chinese Juniper, Chinese Juniper)

The beautiful soft foliage and spreading form of 'Armstrongii' make it an attractive evergreen shrub for the landscape. It dwarf and has prickly juvenile foliage that becomes soft and scaled as it matures. The true identity of this cultivar is under scrutiny. Some maintain it is a Juniperus chinensis cultivar, while others believe it is a pfitzer juniper, which is a Juniperus sabina and Juniperus chinensis cross.

Pfitzer junipers are useful plants with a solid evergreen...

(Chinese Juniper, Golden Chinese Juniper)

Many believe this is the most beautiful of all golden columnar junipers because its foliage is equally bright in summer and winter. Asian in origin, this cultivar was discovered as a branch sport in around 1855 at Maurice Young's nursery, Milford, Godalming, Surrey, England. It has a tall, pyramidal form and prickly scale-like leaves that become stiffer when mature. The sport arose from a male plant, so this is not a berry producing selection.

Chinese juniper prefers full sun and grows in any...
