Companion Plants(Must Haves!) and A Whatzit!

All shade gardeners should have :

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Starry Eyes'. White-eyed, azure-blue flowers. A

Kirengeshoma koreana. Get this rather rare species of the Yellow Wax
Bells--the foilage is much nicer than palmata.

Asarum virginicum 'Shuttleworth'==better than the Canadian and European types.

Lysimachia ciliata 'Purpurea'. Almost black leaves, with those marvelous star-
shaped flowers.

Acanthus hungaricus. Absolutely beautiful foliage with the usual marvelous
bracts. I like this one better than spinosum and mollis for the rather
smoothly dendated leaves--distinctive! 

Whatzit: A seedling, very dark-green leaves, almost black--- lanceolate
leaves--heavy substance--BUT there are a lot around with those
characteristics--this one has PURE WHITE flowers! Not a trace of any lavender,
etc., striping! It just popped up in my yard! Am sending it for evaluation.
Might be a cross with 'Tokudama' which grows nearby. Moral=Let the bees do the
work and have a big gene pool.
