Gorgeous white three petaled flowers gradually transition from white to pink to wine purple. Most of our plants are sweetly fragrant (like plum blossoms). Lovely mat rich green leaves. Co-evolved with our wacky climate of drenched winters and tolerant of summer drought. Tubers usually sit deeply when established, but very shallow as seedlings. Will spread when happy.

CANADA ONLY due to CFIA export restrictions. Red fruited cherry plum or Pissard plum. Delicious clingstone 3cm sized fruits festoon these trees. It was covered in heavenly sweetly scented flowers in March making it easy to spot. This summer we were awarded with a bounty. I did not notice any black knot on these unkempt trees. Small bronze leaves with dark red/purple veining. Rounded form no more than 10m tall and just as wide. Pick fruits when they start turning yellow as they don't stick to the tree when ripe. Does very well on forest edges and along the beach front. Seedlings growing in the brambles look just like the mother tree.
Our native crabapple that's gaining popularity as a disease and drought resistant rootstock for domestic apples with great success. .  Sweet almond scented pale amber/ivory flowers festoon the fruiting spurs in early May.  Small oval bronzy coloured fruits are much enjoyed by the birds after a frost (if not sooner).  Used for pectin, jelly. A great wildlife tree.  Rugged bark on older specimens.  Leaves often have pointed lobes midway along the edge...distinguishing it from domestic apple saplings.  First Nations harvested these green, placed them in bent cedar boxes filled with water and stored them in a cool place.  Over the winter the flavour changed from tart to sweet with a scent of cotton candy. No disease problems.

Beautiful paper thin peeling cinnamon coloured layered bark. If this wasn't distinctive enough, the green trifoliate leaves are often coarsely serrated or lobed. Autumn colour consists of brilliant oranges and reds. A very distinctive and unusual maple hardy enough to be used as a street tree in full sun. Relatively slow grower that will eventually reach 14 meters tall with about equal spread in 50 years. Tolerant of clay soils. No pest problems.

CANADA ONLY due to CFIA export restrictions. Yellow fruited cherry plum. Delicious freestone 3cm sized fruits festooned these feral trees. It was covered in heavenly sweetly scented flowers in March making it easy to spot. This summer we were awarded with a bounty. Trees do have a touch of black knot, but considering they receive no care, they're doing amazingly well. Small leaves. Rounded form no more than 10m tall and just as wide. Pick fruits when they start turning yellow as they don't stick to the tree when ripe. Does very well on forest edges and along the beach front.
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.
