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. 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. Our shrubby thorny relative to the famous ginseng (Panax).  Like ginseng, it is widely used as a valuable medicinal today as its been for countless generations by our Coastal First Nations from Alaska to California for a variety of ailments.  Found along moist open mixed forest and riparian areas, but will make itself home in a shady garden where its lovely bold palmate green leaves can be enjoyed.  Creamy white flower clusters are followed by brilliant red berries by August.  Some would find this species intimidating with its 3m woody stalks armed with wicked thorns, but this plant is a beauty.  Truly under appreciated. Summer drought tolerant.

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).

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.

Rhodo enthusiasts name this elegant species as one of the most sought after by collectors. Waxy tubular flowers appear in early May and range in colour from mustard yellow to orange to scarlet. In spring, its blue green waxy young leaves have a pleasant cinnamon-camphor scent.  Known to sporadically bloom from June to frost.  Very fine seed.
