When we talk about shade, we all have our own ideas about what is shade. To begin, all shade is not created equal. Shade can be defined by using several categories: morning shade, afternoon shade, light shade, and dense shade. Light or partial shade is an ideal condition to grow a wide variety of wonderful garden plants.

Zingiber mioga White Feather

Zingiber mioga 'White Feather' is the reverse variegated form of Zingiber 'Dancing Crane'. The 3' tall spikes emerge in late spring, adorned with 1' long x 2.5" wide green leaves, edged in creamy yellow that fades to creamy white. Expect a 5' wide patch in five years when grown in rich organic soils. Once the plants are established, they produce light yellow, orchid-like flowers at ground level in late summer and into fall. If you get hungry in the garden, they can be prepared as the perfect…

Zingiber mioga Dancing Crane

(syn: Zingiber mioga 'Nakafu') This selection of the edible (flowers and new shoots) Japanese woodland ginger comes from the collection of famed Japanese nursery Gotemba. The 3' stalks of 1' long x 2.5" wide green leaves are each highlighted with a stunning central "white lightning" pattern. Each easy-to-grow clump of Zingiber mioga 'Dancing Crane' multiplies rapidly, soon making a 5' wide patch in five years. In late summer through fall, the small, light yellow, orchid-like flowers peek out…

Zingiber mioga

From the Japanese woodlands comes this hardy edible ginger. The 3' stalks of green leaves make a tropical-looking specimen in the woodland garden. From late summer through fall, the small, light yellow, orchid-like flowers peek out from the base of the plant at ground level. The Japanese eat the new shoots and, when really hungry, include the flowers as well.

Zingiber is the genus of the culinary herb ginger and it also contains a few exotic ornamental species. Although Zingiber is primarily a tropical genus , Zingiber mioga has proven to be an amazingly hardy ginger plant in temperate gardens.

Yushania confusa

Yushania confusa is a virtually unknown clumping bamboo, shared with us by our friend, the late garden designer Wolfgang Oehme, from a magnificent clump that grew in his Maryland garden. Yushania confusa, which hails from 3,000'-7,000' elevation in south central China, has thrived in our heat, humidity, and cold since 2004, where it has formed a splendid clump to 3' wide at the base. The 6' tall silvery grey culms arch outward to form a 9' wide fountain...simply elegant!

Trillium underwoodii

Trillium underwoodii

Trillium underwoodii is a stunning Southeast US native trillium from the dry deciduous forests of the Deep South including Alabama, Georgia, and the Florida Panhandle. Despite this range, Trillium underwoodii has remarkable winter hardiness. The stunning, mottled foliage features a dark, medium, and light green checkerboard pattern with a silver streak down the center of each leaf. Emerging in February and March, each petiole is topped with a dark purple flower to 1" tall, contrasting nicely…

Trillium ludoviciatum The Smiths

(T. ludovicianum A2LA-006) This 2011 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction represents seed-grown plants from a population we discovered in 2003 in Smith County, Mississippi, where Trillium ludovicianum and Trillium cuneatum grew together in low, moist flood plains. When we first saw these in the wild, we were pretty sure they represented natural hybrids between the two species and, after flowering their seedlings, we are even more convinced. The 1' tall stalks of Trillium x ludoviciatum terminate…

Trillium lancifolium Shotgun Wedding

In our garden we originally planted divisions of two forms of Trillium lancifolium near each other...one from northern Florida and another from northern Georgia. Years ago, we gathered the first garden seed from these and, when the seedlings finally flowered in 2012, we discovered the after effects of some horticultural hanky panky. The offspring, which we named Trillium 'Shotgun Wedding' (it's a southern thang), represents a cross between both forms. The offspring are slightly taller at 10"…

Trillium Julia

We are very pleased to offer Trillium 'Julia'...one of the most unique trilliums we've grown. Discovered by Julie Loftin near Nashville, Tennessee (Wilson County) in the early 1990s, Trillium 'Julia' is not a selection of Trillium cuneatum, but is instead, a still un-named new species, related to the also yet unnamed Trillium sp. nov. freemanii, which we discovered a couple of hours southeast. Trillium 'Julia' also has a rhizome that branches incredibly fast, producing an abundance of 8"…

Trillium gracile Shelbyville

(aka: Trillium gracile A3LA-067) This offering of Trillium gracile are seed-grown, flowering-sized plants from our original accession in Shelby County, Texas, near the town of Shelbyville, where they grew in moist bottomland and did not form large clumps. The 11" tall stalks are topped with three greyish leaves, each adorned with olive green patterns. The plants are topped in late April (NC) with narrow, mostly purple petals.
