Wedding Ruffles is a rare combination that Helleborus fans have been craving for years: bright white color on lush, fully double b...looms! Bred for the spring garden, Wedding Ruffles is also the perfect addition to a bridal bouquet! This cultivar is the result of 15 years of careful hand-breeding by Wayside alumnus Chris Hansen. Part of the Winter Thriller? series, this Lenten Rose was carefully selected and hand-bred by hybridizer Chris Hansen. The Winter Thrillers are known for their strong stems, outward-facing blooms, and, of course, their bloom time. The calling card of Lenten Rose is its unique ability to add color to the garden while most plants are still dormant, even covered in snow! Wedding Ruffles complements snowy winter landscapes beautifully with the pristine white color of its blooms. Like all Helleborus, Wedding Ruffles requires a good amount of shade and appreciates evenly moist, well drained soil rich in organic matter. It will tolerate clay soil, and in the cooler zones it will tolerate more sun. Water frequently until the plants become established, after which they become more drought tolerant and only need constant moisture in exceptionally dry, hot weather. A year-round mulch helps to keep the roots moist. The evergreen foliage keeps its beauty all year, especially since it generally goes un-nibbled by pests like deer: an especially important quality if you intend to grow it in a wooded area! Helleborus readily seeds, slowly expanding its colorful shade empire. In the summer you should pull any of these seedlings that you do not want (these may not come true to their parentage), and transplant the rest into their permanent spots. Once established, Helleborus resent having their roots disturbed, so you should only divide them when necessary, and you should avoid division by spacing them properly in the first place. Zones 4 to 8. read more

Synonym Winterglut. Every shade border should include Winter Glow! Not only is the species B. cordifolia fascinating and useful in... itself, but this cultivar adds even more extraordinary color to an already very attractive and useful plant. The foliage on this plant is very thick -- it will remind you of a succulent -- and bright green, except in fall and winter, when it turns bright, almost glowing shades of bronze and scarlet. The color is nothing short of eye-popping, especially in the bleak winter landscape, when little color except gray and brown is present in the garden. Stunning! But the color changes on these large, leathery, evergreen leaves are only one of the merits of Winter Glow. This plant also blooms, often twice a year! It can be relied upon for a good show of rosy-pink blooms, held just above the foliage, in spring. But often it tosses in an autumn encore as well! Both the blooms and the leaves make long-lasting cuts for indoor arrangements, though you will love the color so much in the partly shaded border that you may have trouble cutting even a little bit. No need to fret, though -- this plant has plenty more where that came from! For all of this talk of giant leaves, Winter Glow is just 12 to 15 inches high and 12 inches wide. But it makes a far bigger impression than its size would suggest. Deer and rabbits leave it alone, dry shade and coastal spray do not bother it, and in general it is impervious to changes in soil and weather. Why cant all plants be more like it? Grow Winter Glow among your Hostas, Ferns, and Lamium. It is a good companion to other perennials as well as shrubs in the border. You simply cant go wrong with this one! Zones 3-8. read more

Such an improvement over older varieties, Silver Form combines superior drought tolerance with a gorgeous foliage pattern and rich...ly colored blooms held prominently on strong stems. This winter-to-spring bloomer is a boon to the shade garden as well as to containers of all types, flowering when everything else is still asleep, and needing little maintenance to continue for years. Each heart-shaped leaf of this Winter Cyclamen is colored a rich forest green and overlaid with a pattern of pewter-silver, everywhere except the edges. This leaves a margin of velvety green around each leaf, making them stand out brilliantly on the garden floor. Just 4 inches high and 8 inches wide, this is a plant to carpet the shade border! In late winter and earliest spring, the foliage is topped by dark burgundy stems held straight up. At the tips are magenta-purple blooms, fluttery and jewel-toned, which persist for weeks. Magnificent! Like all Winter Cyclamen, Silver Form loves rich, well-drained soil, but it is far more tolerant of drought than older varieties, making it virtually maintenance-free. Plant it fearlessly beneath deciduous trees, shrubs, and taller perennials, so that its winter show will be revealed in all its glory, or use it in the front of the border. Happiest in partial to full shade, it is a treasure in any setting. Zones 4-9. read more

Heather is perhaps one of the best sources of winter color! But dont think that its beauty is restricted only to the coldest seaso...n of the year. Winter Chocolate is colorful all throughout the year, offering gold spring foliage accented with red tips, green and orange leaves during the summer that turn a lovely shade of chocolate for winter, and soft lavender blooms in late summer and fall. This evergreen shrub has a compact habit, reaching an average height of 8 to 12 inches and spreading 12 to 18 inches, so it will fit perfectly in any size garden. It grows well in full sun to part shade, preferring well-drained soils with medium moisture. Winter Chocolate is a wonderful choice for banks and slopes, informal rock and cottage gardens, patio containers, and anywhere else that needs a touch of unique color and texture. It tolerates sea and salt spray quite well, making it ideal for coastal areas. It even tends to be ignored by deer. Dont miss this four-season beauty! Zones 4-10. read more

Lime, Violet, White, Red, Buttery Yellow--you get a little bit of everything with this sophisticated mix! This strain incorporates... a wide variety of colors. Each plant will produce just one of these colors, so be sure to order multiples: the more plants you order, the greater your color variety will be! The big, outward-facing single (and occasionally double) blooms grow on strong stems as thick as pencils. Like all Helleborus, this mix requires some shade and appreciates evenly moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It will tolerate clay soil, and in the cooler zones will tolerate more sun.

Remarkable black blooms! The slate-colored petals are one of the truest blacks of any plant on the market, offset by the bright gr...een of the centers, and all on very large, upward-facing blooms! Combine these rich black blooms with white spring-blooming cultivars like Snowbells or Deutzia for a striking contrast! Even on their own the blooms create a full and beautiful display, with the lime green eye and creamy yellow anthers creating a nice contrast to the black petals. This one-of-a-kind Helleborus is the result of 9 years of meticulous breeding. Part of the Winter Thrillers? series, Night Coaster was bred for reliably true black blooms, very early bloom time, and exceptional flower form. The strong stems are as thick as pencils, proudly bearing their distinctive 3-inch blooms in an outward-facing position. Like other Helleborus, Night Coaster is quite easy to grow: just give it a shady spot with moist, well-draining soil. It will thrive even in clay soil, quickly becoming established, after which it can tolerate heat, humidity, and drought quite well. This trouble-free cultivar is generally left alone by pests and diseases, surviving for year after year of early-season beauty! 3˝ Inch Container. Zones 5 to 9. read more

We are delighted to offer this Winter Thriller? Helleborus to gardeners this season! A brand-new color for the family, these 3-inc...h blooms sport creamy orange-apricot tones with red flecks and edges. They remain on this Lenten Rose for an astonishing 3 months or more, drying to an exquisite papery consistency. And as Mango Magic matures, its bloom strength increases, until it can sport 50 or more flowers at the height of its long season! Mango Magic is part of the Winter Thriller? series offered by Wayside Gardens alum Chris Hansen. Chris has been breeding Hellebores for more than 15 years, and his dedication has paid off with this high-performing, really exceptionally colorful series. Fully 3 inches wide, these flowers are suffused with color and remain on the plant for 12 weeks or more, from late winter into late spring in most climates. Incredible! This Hellebore should become a mainstay of your shade border. Its simply the easiest plant you can grow, and among the longest-lived, too. Because it is poisonous, pests keep their distance -- including hungry deer and nibbling rabbits. Disease-free and very vigorous, it offers large, evergreen foliage of deep green that looks good year-round. The blooms are large and nodding, held just above the foliage. Cut them at the top of the stem and float them in a bowl of water to show off their colorful interiors, or better yet, let them remain on the plant, decorating the shade garden during the final weeks of winter and well into spring. The blooms dry right on their stems, acquiring paler but no less interesting tones as they mature! We predict that Mango Magic may become your favorite shade perennial, and that the blooms will be standouts in your garden. The plant itself reaches 20 inches high and up to 24 inches wide in partial to full shade, tolerating a wide range of stressors from dry soil to poor fertility. Pamper it the first few seasons, make sure the soil drainage is good, and you will find it virtually maintenance-free! Zones 4-8. read more

You can force this bulb indoors by setting it on a bed of pebbles in a pan of shallow water, or plant it in the garden in autumn. Garden rodents and even deer will leave it alone -- the bulb is poisonous, and pests keep their distance! These bright rosy-pink double blooms reach 4 to 5 inches wide, packed with long, slender petals. The flowers really do resemble a waterlily! No Colchicum is more lovely.

This soft pink version of the popular Roaslie Amaryllis is even more enchanting: creamy white highlights trail down the soft pink ...tepals, drawing your eye to the muted lime green throat. Just one of these large, lovely blooms will brighten any room (or garden), but luckily you can expect 2 or 3 flower scapes from each floriferous plant. Grow Amaryllis any time of year - just pot the bulbs 6 to 8 weeks before the date you want it to begin blooming! Plant your bulb in a 6- to 8-inch pot or space closer if planting more than one together. Keep about 1/3 to 2/3 of the bulb exposed above the soil, and water it in thoroughly. Unless the soil looks dry, you should not water it again until green shoots appear. When the first growth appears, move the plant into a sunny spot and keep it well-watered until it blooms. Once the blooms open, move it out of direct sunlight to prolong the life of the flowers. After the blooms pass, place the pot back in a sunny spot and keep watering and feeding it until the leaves turn yellow. (Most Amaryllis remain green for months, their deeply colored, strap-like foliage an attractive addition to the home or office.) When the foliage dies back, stop watering and keep the bulb potted up in a dry, cool place. Let it rest for at least 10 weeks before beginning the process all over again, and re-pot bulbs every 3 to 5 years to keep flowering at a peak. If you live in a mild climate, Amaryllis will grow beautifully in your garden. Plant the bulbs about 8 inches deep, spacing 6 to 8 inches between plants. Fertilize the soil about 3 weeks after planting. Our top-size bulbs are certain to bloom heavily for many years. While Amaryllis are notoriously tender, this Dutch hybrid has enhanced hardiness, and can be grown up to Zone 8 with appropriate winter protection. Zones 8 to 11. read more

(Heirloom 1889) Most of the tricks garden plants play on us are disappointing, so Magic Lilys dramatic, overnight late-summer bloo...m is all the more welcome! One of the stars of the sunny garden, this reliable performer puts on the final show of the season, offering large, bold trumpets of rosy-pink just as the bright annuals and perennials are fading! The glossy early-spring foliage passes and dies back weeks or even months before the blooms appear, and you may have forgotten all about them (or reluctantly chalked up a garden failure!) when suddenly, almost literally overnight, the blooms open atop thick, leafless stems! The 2 1/2-foot stalks are a useful size for the border or bed ? not tall enough to need staking, yet definitely a stately presence. The blooms are 2 to 3 inches across, their long petals bent back a bit to reveal a golden throat and prominent russet anthers. Long-lasting and quite abundant, they look too good to be true, but require nothing from you except admiration! Their pink cast led to the common name of Naked Ladies, but they are also called the Resurrection Lily. Of course, it turns out that they arent lilies at all (that would be too easy!), but a member of the Amaryllis family. The original plant and forget bulb, Magic Lily asks only full sun and reasonably well-drained soil. Does not bloom the first year. Hardy in zones 5-10. read more

Synonym: Tricyrtis sinonome One of the most beautiful flowering perennials for the shade garden, this Toad Lily has been a popular... cut-flower in Japan for many years, and is now eager to grace your border and vases with its glorious blooms. Sinonome is easy to grow, very free-flowering, and long-lived, slowly spreading to fill in bare spots and create a large, lush planting that flowers in autumn. This moisture lover sets bright green leaves, slightly ribbed, to 4 inches long in symmetrical ladders on long, strong stems. These are topped with long, pointed violet buds in late summer, each opening to a wide-petaled 1-inch-wide flower of cream, burgundy, and white. Freckled, streaked, and washed with color, each flower is uniquely beautiful, and there are plenty of every stem of Sinonome! Expect this Toad Lily to reach 30 to 36 inches high in bloom, and to start out at about a foot wide, spreading to 2 feet within a season or two. Left alone by most pests and diseases (snails can be an issue; use the same remedies you do for your Hostas), all it asks is consistently moist soil and partial to full shade. Long-lived, slowly spreading, and almost unbelievably elegant, this is a perennial you must try in your choicest shady garden spots! Space these plants about 2 feet apart, or slightly closer together if you want more dense converage immediately. Plan for the long term with Sinonome -- it will live a long and beautiful life where happy in the garden, and your indoor arrangements as well as your shade border or woodland garden will be all the better for it!
