Koyamae), a fabulous yellow, autumn-flowering herb that quickly fills out into a three-foot-wide and -tall mass of buttery awesomeness. Then I invited the hairless Japanese woodland sage (S. glabrescens) into my gardening life. Indignant at my ignorance of this species’ existence, I was flattered by the cultivars ‘Shi Ho’ and ‘Momobana’, purple and hot pink, respectively. In the garden, they behave similarly to S. koyamae, preferring woodsy soils under a mostly shaded exposure. They too are fall-flowering, indeed among the last perennials to begin flowering in zones 5 and 6.
Shimmer’, ‘Silver Wings’, and ‘Comanche Campfire’. Of these, ‘Shimmer’ has the highest “hot or not” score for its dazzling foliar presentation and floriferousness. SHADY BUT NOT SKETCHY Light is equal to soil in terms of its primacy in the garden and yet is the most under-realized character as a source of inspiration there.

Easy to grow with few requirements beyond light shade, this deer-resistant shrub maintains urban proportions in the neighborhood of four to six feet with free-spirited branching that’s informal but not unkempt. The flowers remind me of a tequila sunrise, orange blending into pink and back again on the surface of sprite, outward-facing cups.
