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.

Huge multi-stemmed shrub with lovely bright yellow sweetly scented flowers that cannot be ignored. Bloom can last a month in the shade but not as long when growing in full sun. Sometimes petals are occasionally touched with red on the reverse. Neatly cut mid green foliage. Easy to grow and maintain. Blooms on new wood. We only trim off the dead material when it begins to leaf out in late winter.

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!

Beautiful paper thin peeling cinnamon coloured layered bark. If this wasn't distinctive enough, the green trifoliate leaves are often coarsely serrated or lobed. Autumn colour consists of brilliant oranges and reds. A very distinctive and unusual maple hardy enough to be used as a street tree in full sun. Relatively slow grower that will eventually reach 14 meters tall with about equal spread in 50 years. Tolerant of clay soils. No pest problems.

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.

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).
