Ligularia (Bigleaf) Ligularia dentata
66. King Kong
This part-shade loving perennial has the same dark foliage that gardeners have long admired in ‘Britt-Marie Crawford’, but with leaves nearly twice as big at 16” across. The newest leaves are glossy and black-purple—as the summer progresses the leaves mellow to burgundy purple with a semi-glossy finish. Leaves are thick and leathery, with an undulating leaf edge. This vigorous plant comes in slightly taller than ‘Britt-Marie Crawford’ due to its larger leaves, topping around 3-3.5 feet

Golden orange, daisy-like flowers top the plant on purple stems in midsummer, extending the height of the plant to 4 feet. Like most slow-growing Ligularia, this plant will take a few growing seasons to reach its mature height. Leaves are greener in full shade—plant in a site with morning sun for best purple color.

67. Othello
Sometimes called Elephant Ears, this is a bold specimen perennial that needs a moist location. Plants form a clump of large, rounded dark-green leaves with a purple backside.

Passion Flower Passiflora incarnata x cinnicata
78. Incense
Very fast growing vine to 10-20', sometimes longer. This variety is a hybrid between two hardy passion flower species (Passiflora incarnata and P. cinnicata), and as a result, is very hardy itself, surviving temperatures below 0F. Flowers begin in Spring and the vine will flower on and off for most of the Spring and Summer. Flowers attract birds (including hummingbirds) and bees. The flowers are self-sterile, so without pollinators, they should be hand-pollinated to obtain fruit. Flowers are followed by yellow, 1-3" fruit with little pulp. Fruits are edible. n/a Click to display 'Incense' tag image 10'-20' 36"-48" 6-9 10" Green w/ Trellis

91. Minnie Pearl
Clusters of large, pure white flowers completely cover the glossy, green foliage from early to late summer. In warmer zones, this plant reportedly begins blooming in April, long before the paniculatas. The relatively short plants spread slowly to form a 2ft wide clump in about 3 years.

An especially early bloom time, incredible disease resistance, and a slowly spreading habit set this white flowering Phlox apart from similar cultivars.

‘Minnie Pearl’ was discovered growing along the roadside in Kemper, Mississippi by plantswoman Karen Partlow. It appears to be a naturally occurring hybrid of P. maculata x P. glaberrima, though it has a nice upright habit like the paniculatas.
