Large pale blush to mid pink flowers up to 25cm across produced in late winter before the leaves. Fragrant. Gorgeous. Huge thick leaves.

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.

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!

Beautiful paper thin peeling cinnamon coloured layered bark. If this wasn't distinctive enough, the green trifoliate leaves are often coarsely serrated or lobed. Autumn colour consists of brilliant oranges and reds. A very distinctive and unusual maple hardy enough to be used as a street tree in full sun. Relatively slow grower that will eventually reach 14 meters tall with about equal spread in 50 years. Tolerant of clay soils. No pest problems.

Also known as Houpu magnolia,an exotic Chinese subspecies of M. officinalis. What makes it special is the apical notch at the tips of its large obovate leaves giving the leaves a bi-lobed shape characteristic. In May-June, antique ivory coloured 30 cm diameter sweetly scented flowers appear in abundance. Grows very quickly (1m/year) and blooms at a very young age (5-7 years). Straight trunked tree reaching an average height of 15 meters, but the odd larger specimen is known in botanical gardens. Almost non-existent in the wild due to over harvesting of its prized medicinal bark used in TCM.
