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.

An extremely dramatic plant. In early spring, a mottled pinkish purple spike emerges to gradually unfurl leaves and a purple & green spathe and pure white mat textured spadix that is truly breath taking. I acquired one and quickly learned that I needed (not wanted) more! Dark green leaves can be marked with silver. Doesn't take up much space so its great for small and large gardens. Does well in containers too, but they must accommodate a growing plant that can reach 24 cm or more in height.

Our shrubby thorny relative to the famous ginseng (Panax).  Like ginseng, it is widely used as a valuable medicinal today as its been for countless generations by our Coastal First Nations from Alaska to California for a variety of ailments.  Found along moist open mixed forest and riparian areas, but will make itself home in a shady garden where its lovely bold palmate green leaves can be enjoyed.  Creamy white flower clusters are followed by brilliant red berries by August.  Some would find this species intimidating with its 3m woody stalks armed with wicked thorns, but this plant is a beauty.  Truly under appreciated. Summer drought tolerant.

So fragrant you smell them before you see them.  Delicious and extremely productive. Thick leathery evergreen glossy leaves on long stems and white flowers look very much like a smaller version of commercial varieties.  Makes dense carefree colonies when happy so filling a bucket is not hard to do. Its quite an event when the strawberries are ripe on Haida Gwaii' Rose Spit.  This species continues to be used by breeders to create many of today's strawberry cultivars.

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).

Huge multi-stemmed shrub with lovely bright yellow sweetly scented flowers that cannot be ignored. Bloom can last a month in the shade but not as long when growing in full sun. Sometimes petals are occasionally touched with red on the reverse. Neatly cut mid green foliage. Easy to grow and maintain. Blooms on new wood. We only trim off the dead material when it begins to leaf out in late winter.
