Beautiful flowering shade tree.  Its spreading branches are covered with white silk handkerchief like flowers that dance in a breeze somewhat resembling a flock of doves fanning their wings. Plan accordingly when seating your Davidia as it WILL become a focal point.  Known to start blooming at 10 years.  Bright yellow Autumn colour. Cinnamon coloured bark flakes off in irregular 'puzzle piece' patches  Can grow 13m tall with equal spread.

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).

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.

Gorgeous large camellia-stewartia like blooms adorn new growth in small bunches for continuous month(s) long bloom.The longer your growing season, the longer the flowering time and more opportunities to stick your nose in to inhale the sweet heavenly scent that conjures up roses, violets and wildflower honey.No wonder the bees love it!  We're still learning more about this amazing species from our plants.  Large tropical leaves with blazing reddish-bronze fall colour. Fibrous root system cannot out compete cedars or rhodos so plan accordingly. PROTECT FROM DEER. Extinct in the wild. 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.

An extremely rare Chinese cousin to North America's Kentucky Coffee Tree. Almost extinct in China and nearly unheard of in cultivation whether in public, private gardens and arboretums. Form is very much like its North American cousin in size and form, except for its remarkable foliage that starts life a royal purple then becoming blue green but retains its purple tint on the reverse. Leaflets are more perfectly oval than lanceolate like is North American kin. Totally unique. Hardiness testing proves this species can survive in pots without protection to -12C without any damage.
