Glaucidium palmatum is one of the most highly prized plants in horticulture...and one that we can't grow in our climate. I am shamelessly envious of those of you north of Zone 7b or on the West Coast who can grow it. For those in the colder zones, we offer this hard-to-find hellebore relative which makes large 2' wide clumps of rich, green, anemone-like foliage. In very early spring the clumps are adorned with large, pink, poppy-like flowers. This is such an exceptional beauty that any gardener who has a woodland garden and can grow this gem simply must have it. Get one before it gets hot here in NC. Glaucidium palmatum was named by the Royal Horticultural Society as one of the top 200 plants of the last 200 years!
