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.

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 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.

Gorgeous large camellia-stewartia like blooms adorn new growth in small bunches for continuous month(s) long bloom.The longer your growing season, the longer the flowering time and more opportunities to stick your nose in to inhale the sweet heavenly scent that conjures up roses, violets and wildflower honey.No wonder the bees love it!  We're still learning more about this amazing species from our plants.  Large tropical leaves with blazing reddish-bronze fall colour. Fibrous root system cannot out compete cedars or rhodos so plan accordingly. PROTECT FROM DEER. Extinct in the wild.

Gorgeous white three petaled flowers gradually transition from white to pink to wine purple. Most of our plants are sweetly fragrant (like plum blossoms). Lovely mat rich green leaves. Co-evolved with our wacky climate of drenched winters and tolerant of summer drought. Tubers usually sit deeply when established, but very shallow as seedlings. Will spread when happy.

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.
