HABIT

Uvularia grandiflora BELLWORT Diminutive in form, this delightful native is easily overlooked in the woodland garden (barring any headlocks from Allan Armitage).  Like other woodland Liliaceae, leaves fork out from arching stems forming pendant, fragrant, soft yellow flowers in spring.  Berries in late spring sit charmingly on the foliage.  Can be used as a ground cover under deciduous trees, fertilizing in spring will help push this slow spreader along.  Prefers the moist woodland soils of North American deciduous forests.

HABIT

Vernonia IRON WEED These native perennials are popular for late season color. The tall yet sturdy plants make a fine backdrop in a garden. Ironweeds are happy growing in damp soils in nature but adapt well to average garden conditions. Plants may be pruned in spring to produce shorter plants or to stagger bloom time.Vernonia glauca- UPLAND IRONWEED.

Veronica spicata 'Red Fox', V. spicata 'Goodness Grows' SPEEDWELL Both are low, long blooming plants with glossy dark green leaves of medium size. They prefer moderately fertile, well drained soil demanding average moisture only. The taller V. 'Sunny Border Blue' has vivid violet blue flowers, with the same cultivation requirements, but have larger lighter green crumply leaves. Veronica's deserve representation in all borders. They associate well with other plants and are easy to grow, with neat and colorful flower spikes. Veronica p. 'Georgia Blue' and Veronica 'Waterperry' are excellent carpeting plants well used at a garden edge spilling over a walkway or wall. Veronica 'Royal Candles' is a compact plant with clean, lasting foliage and a long bloom season.

Veronicastrum virginicum CULVER'S ROOT, BLACKROOT Prefers wet conditions and needs full sun to maintain its tall and sturdy upright habit. Branching stems hold many dark green leaves, which grow out like the spokes of a wheel. In late summer branches end in white flower spikes that are neatly and firmly upright occasionally attaining a pale pink tint. The vertical and horizontal structure and durable heights of this plant make it valuable for design. Native to woodlands and meadows of our Northeast.

Viola labradorica LABRADOR VIOLET The appealing dark green foliage tinged with purple brings interest all season. Likes a cool open position where drainage is good. Can tolerate more sun with adequate moisture and increased light will deepen the purplish foliage color. After the spring flush, partial flowering continues throughout the growing season. Self sows. Viola 'Purple Showers' SWEET VIOLET This true purple performer comes back for an extended encore. Happy when growing in bright shade and average to rich moist soil. After bloom cut off the spent flowers to encourage rebloom.

HABIT

Weigela florida 'Elvera' (Midnight Wine) This dwarf mounding shrub has dark metallic burgundy (near black) leaves. A single plant makes a fine specimen or it can be grouped together as a groundcover. It makes an excellent foil and companion plant in a perennial garden where contrasting foliage is desired. Showy funnel-shaped flowers are an added bonus. Prune only after flowering since it flowers on last year's twigs. Prospers in average garden soil.

Yucca filamentosa NEEDLE PALM A trunkless, rosette forming species hardy to zone 5.  Foliage is thick and swordlike, providing a sharp textured foliar contrast and focal point within the garden.  Older plants bloom more frequently with panicles rising 5 feet above the plant adorned with numerous bell shaped flowers, similar to Digitalis.  Yucca’s have taproots which can hold food and water in reserve, so water sparingly and plant in full sun.
