Yinger introduced this to our gardens (and we will never be able to forget): a quite remarkable clumping (sometimes wandering) member of the Buckwheats with new growth emerging coral in the spring to reach a five foot stature with leaves boldly splashed white, brilliant pink, bronze-green and emerald much valued for Ikebana. The emerging fat bronzy pink stalks in the spring are among the most astounding sight in the world of decorative horticulture--every year visitors to the gardens here take endless photos of this phenomenon of seemingly giant steroidal hot pink Asparagus stalks spearing up out of the soil. Remember that this is a big boned gal--do not plant this near any delicate modest lass in your beds as 'Tricolor' will win the battle for space. Do we love it? Of course, we love it.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
