Huge multi-stemmed shrub to 2-3 meters in height with equal spread. In early summer plant is clothed in bright yellow faintly scented blooms. Sometimes petals are painted with some red on the reverse. Neatly cut mid green foliage.

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 valuable rare herbaceous perennial of the Eastern North American forests.  Single stems appear in early to mid Spring from golden yellow rhizomes.  White flowers open even before the large lobed leaves unfurl.  Red berries follow and are often taken by birds.

28 grams/1 ounce of stratified seed for prompt spring germination. Ginseng translates to 'Man-Root' aptly named after the human like shape of mature roots, non the less this North American perennial is a valuable ages old medicinal herb used by many cultures.  Mature plants bear up to three large palmate leaves evenly divided from a single main stem.  A white flower umbel is nestled between the leaf stems.  Red berries follow in the Autumn.  Can make large colonies. A rare spring beauty.  Distinctive lobed leaf, single white flowers whose fleeting beauty must be enjoyed in April (here).  Quite a stunning sight when large colonies form via seedlings and/or, if it loves you, slowly spreads via creeping rhizomes.  Called Bloodroot for the reddish orange sap that seeps from the thick rhizomes when cut.  Once used as face paint by First Nations to as recently in disinfecting mouthwashes.  Likes dappled sun, but can take a few hours of full sun.  Don't place in overly damp areas nor overwater as this leads to root rot.  Survives our west coast conditions just fine

One of the last magnolias to bloom in spring, its incredibly sweet fragrant creamy white cup shaped flowers can reach 30cm across, far out sizing M. grandiflora. This hardy species looks deceptively tropical with its massive mid green leaves which have a silvery white reverse. A medium sized tree reaching 10m in height with near equal spread. Being relatively thin for their size, the delicate leaves can be damaged in strong winds so its best to seat the tree in sheltered sites. Wide spreading branches make it an ideal shade tree. Its been known to bloom at a very young age (3 years is one quote).
