Iris Alene’s Other Love

By Dean – 1993

This standard dwarf bearded (SDB) iris is very difficult to describe…you really need to look at the picture or better yet see it in person.  It is lavender, cream and tan or straw colored all kind of blended together with very dark purple shooting up from the base.  The sky blue beards top it off with a stunning yet calming result. At 12 plus inches it she is tall for a SDB with a wide flat form the standards form a ball while the falls don’t fall they are held straight out to the side.

Bleeding Heart – Dicentra spectabilis

Bleeding Heart

Bleeding Heart

Bleeding heart has attractive mounded foliage with arching stems of delicate, heart-shaped flowers in spring. It thrives in moist woodland gardens along with ferns and other shade-lovers.  They are deer resistant and this is the old fashioned variety favored for cottage gardens that has pink hearts and white teardrops falling from them.  The plant is ephemeral which means that the foliage will die back after they flower and reappear the next spring.  You may notice seedlings; transplant them to a desired spot.

Allium Tuberosum – Garlic chives

I would not be without this fabulous herb. It’s a must for anyone who loves of garlic. They are great in salads, stir fries, eggs, with vegetables and especially in Asian inspired soups. Sometimes the plant is called Chinese chives or leeks.  The leaves are best when harvested young. They are flat rather than round like regular chives. The white flowers are also edible and add a subtle garlic flavor to salads. They bloom later in summer than a standard chive. The seeds can be used for sprouting, another delicious salad additive that you can save for winter, when the flowers are no longer available.  They to self-sow readily so be sure to cut the seed heads before the seeds fall if you start to get too many.  I keep this beauty in my white garden. They flower all the way until frost, when not much else is blooming.  The bees and butterflies love them too. They draw the pollinators to the garden like a magnet. I’d have them for this reason alone.  These plants are super low maintenance. The only thing I do to them is remove the dead foliage in spring and cut off the seed heads to prevent over production.
