I found this Arisaema incredibly easy to grow from seed and does well in the our garden. What attracted me to this cobra lily was its two leaf forms. Non-flowering plants has huge gently rugose bright green banana like leaves whereas in flowering plants the 10-12 leaflets are arranged along a horseshoe stem. The spathe is a waxy jade green with a gravity defying 'S' curved spadix pointing skyward. Gorgeous!

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.

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.

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

This highly prized ornamental conifer is one of the five sacred trees from Japan’s Kiso forest.  Its extremely thick green luxuriant needles arranged in great whorls along the twigs and smaller branches and lovely craggy orange brown bark made me stop to admire this tree.  Its unlike any other conifer.

1 ounce/28 grams freshly cleaned 2014 seed. Please inquire for larger quantities. Beautiful flowering dogwood co evolved with our pacific west coast climates of wet springs, dry summers and -12C winters. This year's seed is from trees further up the mountain where its even colder than our sea side garden. A unique dogwood which can bloom twice; once in mid spring and again in the early fall. Brilliant red to purple fall colour. Best in full sun or in open forest. Fast growing. Great pollen/nectar plant for the critters and berries for migrating song birds.
