Paeonia lutea var ludlowii Meconopsis betonicifolia Magnolia kobus var borealis

Huge multi-stemmed shrub with lovely bright yellow sweetly scented flowers that cannot be ignored. Bloom can last a month in the shade but not as long when growing in full sun. Sometimes petals are occasionally touched with red on the reverse. Neatly cut mid green foliage. Easy to grow and maintain. Blooms on new wood. We only trim off the dead material when it begins to leaf out in late winter.

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.

This subspecies of Magnolia kobus is perhaps the hardiest of all magnolias. Just as beautiful as M. kobus but the tree form is quite a bit larger and has a spreading sinuous form (12 m tall and twice as wide in 50 years). White slightly fragrant white blooms open mid April. Flowers and seed from this subspecies are some what smaller than M. kobus,var kobus but the seed is significantly smaller but this doesn't hinder germination one little bit. Never lime magnolias (EVER!). Use acidic fertilizers if you need to. All magnolias love bark mulch.

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.

Beautiful deciduous magnolia from the mountains of Japan. White fragrant flowers in mid April have a light pink stripe. Small shapely leaves. Nice tree overall with an upright pyramidal form. One of the parents to Loebneri hybrids. Firm petals don't mope in Spring rains nor succumb to Spring frosts. Mature plants are covered in bloom. Very hardy and problem free. Scarlet knobby seed pod/cones in the fall. Collect the seed before the birds and squirrels do!

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.
