28 grams/1 ounce of stratified seed for prompt spring germination. Ginseng translates to 'Man-Root' aptly named after the human like shape of mature roots, non the less this North American perennial is a valuable ages old medicinal herb used by many cultures.  Mature plants bear up to three large palmate leaves evenly divided from a single main stem.  A white flower umbel is nestled between the leaf stems.  Red berries follow in the Autumn.  Can make large colonies.

Huge multi-stemmed shrub to 2-3 meters in height with equal spread. In early summer plant is clothed in bright yellow faintly scented blooms. Sometimes petals are painted with some red on the reverse. Neatly cut mid green foliage.

This subspecies of Magnolia kobus is perhaps the hardiest of all magnolias. Just as beautiful as M. kobus but the tree form is quite a bit larger and has a spreading sinuous form (12 m tall and twice as wide in 50 years). White slightly fragrant white blooms open mid April. Flowers and seed from this subspecies are some what smaller than M. kobus,var kobus but the seed is significantly smaller but this doesn't hinder germination one little bit. Never lime magnolias (EVER!). Use acidic fertilizers if you need to. All magnolias love bark mulch.

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.

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 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.
