Don’t like glads? We dare you to try wee, wildflowery ‘Boone’. Collected at an abandoned homestead in the Appalachians near Boone, NC, it has graceful, pint-sized, primulinus
blooms of soft apricot, and
it’s remarkably hardy – through zone 6 at least, and many of our zone-5 customers tell us it’s perennial for them, too. Like ‘Carolina Primrose’
, it’s an early form of the “Maid of the Mist” glad (G. primulinus
, now G. dalenii
, from Victoria Falls to the US in 1908), and awesome. (See it on the cover of Fine Gardening
!) 3 feet, zones 6a(5?)-9b(8a-11bWC), from Michigan.
