Our shrubby thorny relative to the famous ginseng (Panax).  Like ginseng, it is widely used as a valuable medicinal today as its been for countless generations by our Coastal First Nations from Alaska to California for a variety of ailments.  Found along moist open mixed forest and riparian areas, but will make itself home in a shady garden where its lovely bold palmate green leaves can be enjoyed.  Creamy white flower clusters are followed by brilliant red berries by August.  Some would find this species intimidating with its 3m woody stalks armed with wicked thorns, but this plant is a beauty.  Truly under appreciated. Summer drought tolerant.

This heavily branched deciduous beauty grows more tree like with a pyramidal form. In May/June flowers open in profuse display releasing a sweet fruity fragrance from ivory white blooms. Dark crimson boss of stamens gives quite a contrast of colour. Nodding blossoms are cup shaped and appear with the leaves in late spring. Leaves and tepals are longer and narrower than M. sieboldii and the seed is notably smaller.

A valuable rare herbaceous perennial of the Eastern North American forests.  Single stems appear in early to mid Spring from golden yellow rhizomes.  White flowers open even before the large lobed leaves unfurl.  Red berries follow and are often taken by birds.

28 grams/1 ounce of 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.

A majestic evergreen magnolia species with large glossy leaves with a russet fuzz on the underside. Huge 20cm single creamy white sweetly fragrant (somewhat like sweet lemonade) flowers scent the air in June to frost. The petals are so thick and so firm they probably can stand up to a gail force wind. Fast growing in the right spot. It is not uncommon for mature trees to reach 20 meters tall with half the spread. Of course there are smaller cultivars but here we offer the species in all its glory.

One of the most sought after treasures of the botanical world.  Clear sky blue flowers held 1-1.5 meters above a basal rosette of foliage studded with golden hair.  Each bloom lasts about 10 days starting late spring and are borne in succession until mid summer.  Though it is monocarpic, good healthy plants will produce daughter offshoots that will in turn create daughter offshoots of their own creating one heck of a self sustaining clump over time.  NEVER divide as you will kill them.  Loves an eastern exposure where it gets morning sun then shade/dappled sun for the rest of the day.
