Endangered. Fast-growing flowering small tree. In spring 10cm wide umbels of creamy white flowers clothe branch and red twig tips, very showy against its deep green foliage. Lance shaped leaves are smooth margin-ed and turn a deep purple in the fall. Plump fleshy black fruits are loved by birds. Shrub form when young; becoming tree like (to 12m) when older. Lovely alligator bark when mature. Drought tolerant; great shade tree hardy enough for the street plantings. A great plant for pollinators.

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!

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.

A rare and unusual tree second only to ginseng in traditional Chinese medicine. Aptly named as its the only temperate climate tree able to produce rubber. Quick growing, attractive, pest and disease resistant its also tough enough for use for urban/street tree plantings or in the garden as a 10m tall shade ornamental with its thick glossy attractive elm like dark green leaves. Very nice pale grey fissured bark. Gendered species. Possessing only 3-4% latex rubber, you won't be able to make your own tires (yet), but the latex acts as a natural deterrent for many nibbling pests. Almost extinct in the wild due to over zealous bark harvesting. Studies show the leaves possess the same plethora of health benefits as the bark and you can harvest the fleaves or tea without harming the tree.

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 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.
