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.

A sweet little dwarf rhododendron introduced to the gardening world in 1981, and still rare in cultivation.  Fairly large flowers in April can clothe the plant in pink.  Spiky fuzz on the densely clustered stems add interest once the blooms are gone.  Will be wider than tall making it less prone to break under a snow load.  Slow growing...will reach 50 cm tall and 1 meter wide over time. 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.

A beautiful iconic native tree of the North American Pacific Coast. A broadleaf evergreen tree with huge clusters of incredibly sweet honey scented nectar filled bell white flowers in the spring. You can hear the buzz of hummingbirds and other nectar seekers. In the fall, green berries ripen to a brilliant orange. The rich red-cinnamon coloured bark peels off in sheets during the growing season revealing the smooth new green-tan coloured bark. Grows to 12m tall with 6m spread with graceful twists and artful curves (never straight).

A rare and unusual tree second only to ginseng in traditional Chinese medicine. Aptly named as its the only temperate climate tree able to produce rubber. Quick growing, attractive, pest and disease resistant its also tough enough for use for urban/street tree plantings or in the garden as a 10m tall shade ornamental with its thick glossy attractive elm like dark green leaves. Very nice pale grey fissured bark. Gendered species. Possessing only 3-4% latex rubber, you won't be able to make your own tires (yet), but the latex acts as a natural deterrent for many nibbling pests. Almost extinct in the wild due to over zealous bark harvesting. Studies show the leaves possess the same plethora of health benefits as the bark and you can harvest the fleaves or tea without harming the tree.
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.
