This is my first time growing from seed and have enough to share. What attracted me to this cobra lily was its two leaf forms. Non-flowering plants have huge gently pleated banana like leaves whereas in flowering plants the 10-12 leaflets are arranged along a horseshoe stem. The spathe is a waxy jade green with a 'S' curved spadix, in a gravity defying act, shoots straight. Gorgeous!

A small woodland gem from our west coast. Pink to white flowers are randomly dotted with the darkest pink. Mid green mat leaves have white veining unique to this species. Like Paris, its not considered a true Trillium but an ally. I find it easy to grow and it loves growing in clumps in the rock garden or in pots.

Stratified seed for prompt spring germination. Ginseng translates to 'Man-Root' aptly named after the human like shape of mature roots, non the less this North American perennial is a valuable ages old medicinal herb used by many cultures.  Mature plants bear up to three large palmate leaves evenly divided from a single main stem.  A white flower umbel is nestled between the leaf stems.  Red berries follow in the Autumn.  Can make large colonies.

1 ounce/28 grams freshly cleaned 2014 seed. Please inquire for larger quantities. Beautiful flowering dogwood co evolved with our pacific west coast climates of wet springs, dry summers and -12C winters. This year's seed is from trees further up the mountain where its even colder than our sea side garden. A unique dogwood which can bloom twice; once in mid spring and again in the early fall. Brilliant red to purple fall colour. Best in full sun or in open forest. Fast growing. Great pollen/nectar plant for the critters and berries for migrating song birds.

Rhodo enthusiasts name this elegant species as one of the most sought after by collectors. Waxy tubular flowers appear in early May and range in colour from mustard yellow to orange to scarlet. In spring, its blue green waxy young leaves have a pleasant cinnamon-camphor scent.  Known to sporadically bloom from June to frost.  Very fine seed. This rare and unusual tree is second only to ginseng in its use in traditional Chinese medicine.  As its name suggests, this is the only temperate latex bearing tree producing 3-4% latex rubber.  Quick growing and tough enough for urban/street tree plantings. Makes a wonderful 20m tall shade ornamental with its thick glossy attractive elm like dark green leaves.  Very nice pale grey bark. Pest free. Gendered species.  You won't be able to make your own tires (yet), but the latex acts as a natural deterrent for many nibbling pests.  Correct harvesting of the bark does not kill the tree, but I'll leave that to the professionals.  Coal deposits in Germany have thick layers composed of Eucommia leaves that still give off a rubber scent when burnt.
