Cornus nuttallii Arbutus menziesii Paeonia lutea var ludlowii

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 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.

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.

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. Long pleated azure-violet-blue narrow trumpet like flowers are arranged where there's a flower at every leaf axil so there could be hundreds of blooms along 1/3rd of its arching stems.
