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 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.

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).

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.

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!

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.
