Arbutus menziesii Trillium rivale Paeonia lutea var ludlowii
Trillium rivale (Dwarf Wakerobin)
Our Price: $3.50
(Out of Stock)

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).

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.

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.

Cinnamon coloured bark flakes off in irregular 'puzzle piece' patches  Can grow 13m tall with equal spread. 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. Gorgeous large camellia-stewartia like blooms adorn new growth in small bunches for continuous month(s) long bloom.The longer your growing season, the longer the flowering time and more opportunities to stick your nose in to inhale the sweet heavenly scent that conjures up roses, violets and wildflower honey.No wonder the bees love it!  We're still learning more about this amazing species from our plants.  Large tropical leaves with blazing reddish-bronze fall colour. Fibrous root system cannot out compete cedars or rhodos so plan accordingly. PROTECT FROM DEER. Extinct in the wild.
