So fragrant you smell them before you see them.  Delicious and extremely productive. Thick leathery evergreen glossy leaves on long stems and white flowers look very much like a smaller version of commercial varieties.  Makes dense carefree colonies when happy so filling a bucket is not hard to do. Its quite an event when the strawberries are ripe on Haida Gwaii' Rose Spit.  This species continues to be used by breeders to create many of today's strawberry cultivars. 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.

Gorgeous! Deep maroon spathe streaked with pale pink stripes and a spadix that has a mind of its own. Sometimes the purple colouring is so strong the leaves are tinted as well. Huge plants with trifoliate leaves. Huge tubers.

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. An usual flared hood with reticulated markings are the hall mark of this trifoliate Arisaema.

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).
