I'm on the lookout for this one, Mukdenia 'Crimson Fans'. Beautiful.

Does anyone have any photos to share of their Mukdenia?

Oh, my!! Me WANT!! Boy, that one is different. Have you found it by mail yet? I see Plantdelights carries it as do a few others. I'm not sure about Plantdelights as I have never ordered from them.

Does this plant set seeds and if so any chance that you might harvest some for trade or sale?

Mine is not very impressive. Very slow grower and slug chewed.

This photo is from the display garden at Terra Nova, taken yesterday.

I see they took one for their website at the same location.

Plant Delights is a very reputable mail order nursery. They carry many rare and unusual plants. Often expensive because they are rare or unusual....The owner, Tony Avent is known for his humor in their catalogs

Mine are planted in sun, so slugs haven't been an issue. I bought mine in person at a wonderful nursery called Far Reaches Farm in Pt Townsend, WA. They also have a mail-order business. I haven't tried it since I'm in the area, but everything I've seen at the nursery has been quite healthy, so I would have confidence ordering from them.

Here is another pic from the Terra Nova display garden. The Huechera is 'Cherry Cola' by the way.

buyorsell888 - that photo from Terra Nova is a real knockout- there are a ton of great plants there. What a fun tour you must have had, and how kind of you to share with us.

They are rarely open to the public but I've managed to go three times since 2007.
It is a small but amazing display garden.

I also have this plant.
The coloration you see is really only in the fall.
It's a dark green for me right now. But still nice. It's shiny!

I believe I got it from In The Country Garden & Gifts
