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.

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.

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 unique sweetly scented yellow flowered Weigela...whereas most Weigela have white to pink flowers, the trumpets on this species are primrose yellow with a contrasting orange blotch at its lower petal.  Its larger diameter flowers allows a greater variety of nectar seekers to visit in mid to late spring.  Profuse bloom on new growth so with its fine branching and twiggy form it can put on quite a show.  Grows to 2-3m in height with equal spread.  Fast growing.  Protect from strong winds.

This is my first time growing from seed and have enough to share. What attracted me to this cobra lily was its two leaf forms. Non-flowering plants have huge gently pleated 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 'S' curved spadix, in a gravity defying act, shoots straight. Gorgeous!

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.
