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.

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.

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.

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!

Chinese tea, the world's most renowned beverage.  Whether it be green, black, white, yellow, pu-erh, ooling it all comes from the processed tender young leaves and shoots of Camellia sinensis.  Glossy gorgeous dark green leaves.  Smallish white fragrant flowers bloom in the fall, the huge yellow boss of staemens provides a late boon for pollen and nectar seekers.  The plants we put in the garden as a hardiness test survives its full morning sun non protected site.  Over three winters (fully exposed to -12C), there isn't any evidence of die back. Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised as fully mature specimens live in Vancouver and a plantation is being established further down island.  I plan on a lovely hedge sometime in the near future and enjoy our own tea...from both leaves and flowers. Grow as bonsai, pruned to shrubs to small 5m trees (depending on the amount of harvesting done). Grow your own organic fragrant tea. This highly prized ornamental conifer is one of the five sacred trees from Japan’s Kiso forest.  Its extremely thick green luxuriant needles arranged in great whorls along the twigs and smaller branches and lovely craggy orange brown bark made me stop to admire this tree.  Its unlike any other conifer.
