    Crinums. (Crinum spp). The crinum that's hardiest to cold is appropriately named the hardy crinum; it's worth growing not only for its pink flowers, but also for its twisted grayish-green foliage. 'Ellen Bosanquet' is an old Southern favorite with untidily floppy leaves and spicy, fragrant pink blooms. Gardeners in the tropics are no doubt familiar with the ridiculously large grand crinum, which reaches 6 feet tall and produces many sizable spidery white flowers.

ROSE OF MAY, 1950 Rarest True stock! As fragrant as any rose, this elegant, double pheasant’s-eye was bred by Guy Wilson, the shy Irish fellow who gave the world ‘Broughshane’ and dozens of other impeccable daffodils. With blowsy whorls of ivory white petals it looks like an old-fashioned rose, too. Best in cool, moist spots with well-drained soil. 4 W-W, 16-18”, zones 4a-6b Old House Gardens Heirloom Bulbs

Hibiscus - flower used externally for healing or internally as a tea. Respiratory support + mild diuretic. Contains Vitamin C and malic acid.

LUCKY STAR, 1966 - Fragrance in glads is as rare as hen’s teeth. Although a few wild ones have it, breeding it into modern glads has proved difficult. In fact, ‘Lucky Star’ was the only fragrant seedling to come from many years of crosses made by New Zealander Joan Wright using garden glads and the even more fragrant Abyssinian glad. Its bold, angular good looks are a bonus, and night-flying hawk moths love it. 4 feet

INDIAN CHIEF, 1929. With velvety, wine-red falls and glowing standards of raspberry to bronze, this tall, striking, Jazz Age iris is one of the most colorful we grow. It’s exceptionally vigorous, too, thriving on neglect in old gardens everywhere and blooming even in part shade. By the good Dr. Wylie Ayres of Cincinnati, 32-36”, zones 3-7S/ 10WC.
