Beautiful flowering shade tree.  Its spreading branches are covered with white silk handkerchief like flowers that dance in a breeze somewhat resembling a flock of doves fanning their wings. Plan accordingly when seating your Davidia as it WILL become a focal point.  Known to start blooming at 10 years.  Bright yellow Autumn colour. Cinnamon coloured bark flakes off in irregular 'puzzle piece' patches  Can grow 13m tall with equal spread.

One of the few dogwoods that flowers twice a season; once in mid spring and again in the early fall. Quite a contrast with the white flowers along side round red berry clusters. Brilliant red to purple fall colour. Co-evolved with our west coast climate of wet springs, dry summers and mild winters. Does best in either full sun or in open forest. Drought resistant when established. Fast growing. Great pollen/nectar plant for the critters.

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

So fragrant you smell them before you see them.  Delicious and extremely productive. Thick leathery evergreen glossy leaves on long stems and white flowers look very much like a smaller version of commercial varieties.  Makes dense carefree colonies when happy so filling a bucket is not hard to do. Its quite an event when the strawberries are ripe on Haida Gwaii' Rose Spit.  This species continues to be used by breeders to create many of today's strawberry cultivars. A valuable rare herbaceous perennial of the Eastern North American forests.  Single stems appear in early to mid Spring from golden yellow rhizomes.  White flowers open even before the large lobed leaves unfurl.  Red berries follow and are often taken by birds.

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!
