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. 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. Years ago I planted one as a late summer nectar source for the bees, but discovered that this species deserves a lot more respect than I first gave it.  White jasmine scented blooms hang in clusters followed by more colour in its bright pink sepals which gives the illusion of continuing bloom.  Growing to 6m tall with a 4m spread.  Multi-stemmed from the base, the pale creamy tan bark exfoliates in long strips.  Seems to be disease and pest free.  Fast growing and flowers at a young age. Tolerant of many soil types and sun exposure.  Drought tolerant when established.  Aptly named as the flowers are clusters of whorls where each whorl consists of 7 flowers.

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.

Beautiful deciduous magnolia from the mountains of Japan. White fragrant flowers in mid April have a light pink stripe. Small shapely leaves. Nice tree overall with an upright pyramidal form. One of the parents to Loebneri hybrids. Firm petals don't mope in Spring rains nor succumb to Spring frosts. Mature plants are covered in bloom. Very hardy and problem free. Scarlet knobby seed pod/cones in the fall. Collect the seed before the birds and squirrels do!

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.
