Christia obcordata, common names are ‘Swallowtail,’ ‘Butterfly,’ or ‘Stripe’ for obvious reasons. This is a somewhat obscure specimen first imported and made available in the United States by a fellow Portlandian, Burl Mostul of Rare Plant Research. A conversation piece in any garden, the wing-shaped leaves and chartreuse-maroon color combination is stunning in an area that gets bright indirect light.

From outer space - I mean Chile - comes the amazing, rare Bromeliad, the Blue Puya.  With its massive, 7 foot flower cluster, this is one of most outrageous plants anywhere.  The turquoise-blue color is very rare in the plant world, and it's even rarer to be combined with orange.

I, just today, purchased a Black Onyx Helleborus plant. Am so excited to start my shade garden in the back for this fall.
