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.

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.

Beautiful deciduous magnolia from the mountains of Japan. White fragrant flowers in mid April have a light pink stripe. Small shapely leaves. Nice tree overall with an upright pyramidal form. One of the parents to Loebneri hybrids. Firm petals don't mope in Spring rains nor succumb to Spring frosts. Mature plants are covered in bloom. Very hardy and problem free. Scarlet knobby seed pod/cones in the fall. Collect the seed before the birds and squirrels do!

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).

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).
