(Mountain Maple)

Common in the understory of the forests of eastern North America, mountain maple is also an attractive subject for lightly shaded gardens. Typically forming a large multi-trunked shrub, it bears dark green leaves with toothed margins and three pointed lobes. The leaves turn bright orange, red, or yellow in fall. Unique, upright, conical clusters of small yellow flowers appear at the branch tips in late spring, later than those of most other maples. Drooping two-winged fruits follow the flowers, maturing...

One particularly attractive cultivar is 'Argenteostriatus', which has beautifully variegated leaves. These plants spread by rhizomes and grow best in moist boggy areas with full to partial sun. Semi-aquatic in nature, calamus works well in naturalistic plantings along waterways or in gardens with moist...

(Aleutian Maidenhair)

Deceptively delicate in appearance but tough in constitution, this enchanting deciduous fern is found over a wide area of western North America and eastern Asia, with scattered populations in the eastern United States. Several long narrow "branches" (pinnae) with triangular leaf-like segments arise from a curving "stem" (rachis), the whole forming a lacy fan-like frond that nearly parallels the ground. The rachis is often deep black-purple, in striking contrast to the foliage. Young fronds are often...
