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. 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.

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 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.

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.

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).
