C. and A Hardcover Book To f) I Cherish Through Generations (See TRANSFERS on Page C6) Wild (Continued from Page C2) Some natives are a bit too boisterous for the garden. 'Miss Manners' obedient plant (Physostegia virginiana 'Miss Manners') is a welcome non-running, white-flowering form of that overly enthusiastic tribe. At other times the reverse is true, and crossing two species can result in "hybrid vigor." Baptisia 'Purple Smoke' is one such hybrid. Its vigorous habit and bountiful dusty purple spires make it an outstanding garden specimen. One of my all-time favorites heucheras, 'Montrose Ruby', is also a hybrid. Introduced in the 1980s by Nancy Goodwin, a talented North Carolina gardener, it was (he first of a seemingly unrelenting stream of heucheras with burgundy and silver leaves. It's still one of the best, its dark tones mixing well with yellow and chartreuse foliaged plants, never failing to lend an air of quiet sophistication to a sunny or lightly shaded bed. Another genus benefiting from hybridization is Lobelia. The scarlet cardinal flower (Lobelia cardi- nalis) and the great blue lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) have been crossed repeatedly. Look for these spectacular offspring: 'Grape Knee-Hi', 'Flamingo', and 'Ruby Slippers'. Fewer cultivars of native woodland plants are available, with the notable exception of foamflower (Tiarella). Cultivars of this woodland wildflower are legion, with so many available that the names and differences get confusing. I'll forgo further discussion of foamflower, except to point out that some forms are "runners" and others are "dumpers." Be aware of which type youfre buying. All perform best in moisture-retentive, organic soils. Woodland phlox (Phlox divari- cata) cultivars are also available in some numbers. 'Louisiana' (purple with a magenta eye) and 'Clouds of Perfume' (fragrant, ice-blue) are two excellent selections to get you started. Some woodland gardeners draw the line at double flowers. The double white trillium cultivars now for sale (at very high prices) do seem to lack much of the simple grace of this cherished group. That said, a colony of the double form of bloodroot (Sanguinaria cunadensis 'Multiplex') reminds me of a tiny sea of graceful water lilies when in bloom each spring. To each gardener his own.
