Welcome to

Collector's Nursery


Collector’s Nursery was a small specialty mail order nursery in the southwest corner of Washington state, with an ever changing palette of interesting plants. I am particularly fond of unusual  shade plants, like Epimedium, Erythronium, Hepatica, Polygonatum (Solomon Seal) and similar shade lovers.

Circle Game          February 29, 2013


I’m a little late, perhaps, in getting this page up for the new season, but away we go !  Things continue to change, and I am still in a big life transition. I am in the slow process of moving about 70 miles from where I currently live. (The romantics out there will appreciate that love has won out over business-as-usual.) So, I am selling out or winding down on many old favorites, but even so, I can’t resist the lure of something new.  Erythroniums, especially, are looming large on my horizon.  As noted on another place on this page, I have acquired a collection of never released or named Erythronium hybrids.  As I write this, in late February, they have just started to poke their leaves above ground, and I can see flower buds expanding.  I will be photographing and documenting them as they bloom, and I am in the process of developing a web page devoted to Erythroniums.                           IRead more )
