Botanica Home Plant Sale

Last updated February 2016

These plants are available for pickup in the Wallingford neighborhood, Seattle, Washington upon prior arrangement. We do not have a retail nursery that is open to the public, and we are unable to ship plants.

These will be available at some point this year. I have given up on trying to list sizes and prices because these change faster than I can keep up with. I also grow many species in small numbers that never make it to the list, so please ask if you're seeking something not listed here.

Most of the images can be clicked to show a much larger and sometimes completely different photo of the plant.

Please contact Pamela with questions or to place an order.

Bear's Breech

Big handsome foliage anchors symmetrical, mauve and white floral spikes. An easy garden choice, this Mediterranean native thrives in well-drained soil and full to partial sun.
To forty inches. Perennial. Zone 7.

Slender, hooded flowers of white with lavender shading crown this graceful vine in late summer. It follows the classic vine lifestyle of climbing from a shaded base into better light by twining onto more rigid neighbors. From mountain forests of China, Korea, and the Russian Far East.
Three to seven feet. Perennial. Zone 5.

Monkshood

Similar to delphiniums but less fuss, monkshood provides erect stems topped with long floral spikes. (good cut flowers!) This autumn-blooming variety is deep violet blue. Does best in rich soil, in part shade to sun.
Four to five feet. Perennial. Zone 3.


Acorus gramineus 'Variegatus'

The perfect ornament for that seepy-weepy damp spot! Great for rain gardens or pond margins. Perky evergreen fans thrive in wet soil, but average moisture will do. For sun or part shade
to twelve inches. Evergreen perennial. Zone 5.


Click for larger image. Actaea pachypoda

Following white flowers in April and May, wonderful white "eyeball' fruits form on chubby red pedicels, toxic, alas. The adaptable actaeas thrive on moist to average soil in sun or shade. Native to the Eastern U.S. A Great Plant Pick, so you know it thrives here.
Two feet. Perennial. Zone 4.


Click for larger image. Agapanthus 'Snow Pixie'

It looks so pretty in a pot you might never insert it in the garden, but this petite lily-of-the-Nile will make a cool midsummer statement wherever it blooms. Grow in sun, in good soil; it's small enough to slip in easily among its neighbors.
Eighteen inches. Perennial. Zone 7.


Agastache aurantiaca 'Apricot Sprite'

For the gardener who plans every detail: rufous hummingbirds look their best against orange/apricot flowers. For the rest of us: this agastache blazes all summer in a dryish, well-drained, sunny site. Fragrant foliage; compact form.
Eighteen inches. Perennial. Zone 9.


Alchemilla mollis
Lady's Mantle

With its droplet-capturing leaves and soft, foamy lime green flowers, Lady's Mantle is unmistakable. It blends beautifully with neighboring plants in sun or shade in well-drained, average to moist soil, and provides a classic edge-softener along paths.
Eighteen inches. Perennial. Zone 4.

Columbine

Washington's own red columbine is a welcome sight to hikers and hummingbirds alike. Given sun and moisture, it adapts well to our gardens, where it blooms spring to early summer above ferny foliage.
One to two feet. Perennial. Zone 5.


Click for larger image. Aralia californica

No need to bend down to admire the white summer blooms or nearly black, bird-friendly fruits; this stately west-coaster meets you eye to eye. Pinnate foliage turns yellow in fall. Classically grown in shade, in moist soil, but tolerates sun and some summer drought. Native to SW Oregon and California.
Six feet. Perennial. Zone 7.
