Celandine Poppy Stylophorum diphyllum
49. Celandine Poppy
This attractive woodland plant will grow well in zones 4-8 in with little to no care in rich woodland soils. It can tolerate drier, sunnier sites with some care. Imagine these bright yellow poppies next to some blue Jacob's Ladder or Mertensia, pinkish Trout Lily or white Trillium in a spring, woodland garden! A welcome, well-deserved sight in April after a long winter. After seeds drop out of its large, hairy pods, Celandine Poppy will go dormant. Seedlings will readily emerge everywhere if fresh seed is scattered on the soil surface. Ants typically aid in seed dispersal.

This plant should not be confused with Chelidonium majus, Greater Celandine a Eurasian semi-weedy biennial often present in highly disturbed areas. The leaves and flowers of the two can be very difficult to distinguish, but they are very different in the seeding stage; Chelidonium has a long, hairless "legume" look, while Stylophorum's fuzzy pods (photos, left) are unmistakable.

Fern (Japanese Painted - Giant)
81. Godzilla
Like Athyrium n. ‘Pictum’ on steroids, this giant painted fern was discovered at Plant Delights Nursery in the mid-90s and is thought to be a sporeling of ‘Pictum’ and the Lady Fern.

It forms a massive, arching clump of silvery fronds with green highlights and dark purple stems. Like the Lady Fern, ‘Godzilla’ spreads slowly where it is happiest in moist, loamy soils.

Grow this fern as a low maintenance filler in shady borders combined with large hostas and Aralia ‘Sun King’.

Fern (Thick-Stemmed Wood) Dryopteris crassirhizoma
84. Thick Stemmed Wood Fern
Dryopteris crassirhizoma is a handsome, tall, vase-shaped fern that usually forms a solitary crown and can reach 3' tall x 3' wide when happy. The semi-evergreen, deer-resistant, thick textured fronds of Dryopteris crassirhizoma give a very tropical appearance in the garden. In winter the fronds remain green but lay flat on the ground, helping to protect those nearby from the ravages of winter. 12A-South Click to display 'Thick Stemmed Wood Fern' tag image n/a 32"-36" 36"-42" 5-8 8" Terra Cotta

Best planted in generous drifts. May flowers are fragrant. SB-5 Click to display 'Rainbow' tag image 5'-6' 48"-5' 5-8 2 Gallon
Foamflower Tiarella hybrid
86. Fingerpaint
This woodland perennial is truly a plant with interest for all seasons. Starting in spring, bright green foliage will jump out at you from the shade. Each leaf is deeply lobed with pointy edges, with an overall lacy texture. The centers of the leaves have burgundy blotches, like handprint made with paint. Ivory flowers appear just above the foliage in early spring. This foamflower is a semi-running type, forming a compact, dense, rounded mound that will have restrained spreading. 4D-South Click to display 'Fingerpaint' tag image 9" 12" 4-9 8" Terra Cotta
