The mission of the Conservancy is to facilitate the acquisition and introduction to North America of threatened and vulnerable ornamental plants of known wild provenance as well as from cultivated sources. These plants will be maintained as a living reference collection for public educational and scientific purposes with the goal of conservation through cultivation via distribution to botanic and public gardens, botanists and researchers plus professional and amateur gardeners and horticulturists. All proceeds from the sales of these plants go to supporting Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy's mission.

Polygonatum aff. verticillatum CDHM 14611 Polygonatum aff. verticillatum CDHM 14611

One of the tall verticillate species in China, this was growing among the branches of a striking shrubby Symplocos just below the mountain summit.  The leaves on this species are arranged in whorls like the spokes of a tire.  At the leaf base are clustered white and green flowers which turn into red fruit.  We like it.

Ophiopogon sp. aff umbraticola H2MD063 Ophiopogon sp. aff umbraticola H2MD063

Keying Ophiopogon requires a keener taxonomic mind than we possess plus a bottle of sippin' whiskey within easy reach as it is a frustrating endeavor.  This is a little gem forming loose open tussocks of fine bladed grassy green leaves which provides excellent viewing of the comparatively large brilliant blue fruit.

Hesperantha coccinea 'Beyond the Pale' Hesperantha coccinea 'Beyond the Pale'

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Introduction.  A seedling selection named and introduced by us in recognition of the large flowers which when compared to other clones in terms of size, is not only beyond the pale ones but all others as well.  Flowers of the palest pink as if infused by a gloaming Icelandic sky.

Dianthus barbatus 'Monksilver Black' Dianthus barbatus 'Monksilver Black'

Awesome Sweet William selected by John Grimshaw from seedlings at Monksilver Nursery and is notable for the foliage which turns maroon-black providing the perfect foil for the velvety maroon clustered flowers which smells of chocolate in warm weather - damn!  Cut back after flowering for another go around.  John personally gave us a piece from his garden so we have a fond attachment.

Pittosporum sp. H2MD 062 Pittosporum sp. H2MD 062

Unidentified species of a seriously good Asian Pittosporum.  This was an attention-grabber being essentially a small 15' tree with large - for a Pittosporum - evergreen leaves.  What really stopped us was the large green seed capsules like small figs.  These split open when mature to reveal showy orange seeds.  Young seed-grown plants.

Oreocharis argyreia CGG 14143 Oreocharis argyreia CGG 14143

Sweet little gesneriad (African Violet family) from our collection in Asia in an area not botanized by westerners.  This was common in soil pockets on rock faces where it formed rosettes of evergreen leaves with scapes (flower stems) to 10" tall.  Up to 9 tubular  light purple flowers on each reddish stem.

Syringa aff. yunnanensis CDHM 14585 Syringa aff. yunnanensis CDHM 14585

A multistemmed large shrub having a small tree appearance as it is quite upright from our Asian collection in an area of extreme ecological devastation.  This had fallen from a cliff edge making seed capsules accessible. Narrow flower heads of whitish flowers have a graceful quality that is found in the wild species.

Rohdea aurantiaca MD97-099 (syn. Tupistra) Rohdea aurantiaca MD97-099 (syn. Tupistra)

Collected as Tupistra in 1997 in the Cangshan above Dali at 10,000'.  This was in a slump of debris on the road from the cliff above and located just past the 1981 SBEC collection of Rhododendron edgeworthii which was recognizable from expedition photos as the same plant growing on top of the same massive boulder.

Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21 Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21

This is an interesting fern of which we have just a few nice divisions.  This grows as an epiphyte on tree trunks which is typical for the genus and was found at the high point in the mountain range so should have some hardiness. The distinctive large rounded paired sori on the backs of the leaves also fit the genus.

Crinodendron hookerianum 'Ada Hoffmann' Crinodendron hookerianum 'Ada Hoffmann'

Chilean Lantern Flower.  We are stoked to offer this uncommon light pink flowered variant and we could not be happier to get this out and about.  Narrow evergreen leaves on a large shrub that is vertical in aspect displaying the blush pink lantern flowers to full effect.  Best in a sheltered spot and thrives in mild PNW gardens.

Berberidopsis beckleri Berberidopsis beckleri

Evergreen vine exceptionally rare to find for sale……..if there was only some nursery somewhere mental enough to invest the time and effort needed to acquire this and grow it for the sake of a few die-hard plant nerds……that would be so cool!  From cool rainforests in Australia, small pink flowers and red fruit.

Pterostyrax psilophyllus var. leveillei CGG 14114 Pterostyrax psilophyllus var. leveillei CGG 14114

Our collection from Asia of what is likely the first introduction of this exceptional form of this equally exceptionally rare variety. Attractive leaves that are terminally cleft into bilateral lobes. The white flowers are the finest in the genus holding their own among the best of flowering trees. So much better than the straight species.

Meliosma veitchiorum H2MD115 Meliosma veitchiorum H2MD115

Impressive tree that left us gobsmacked when we saw this solitary and statuesque 50' tree in the wild.  Broadly columnar with well-spaced branches forming a stout framework for the pinnate leaves.  Big plumes of small white flowers segue to marble-sized black fruit and then it just piles it on with orange fall color.  Extremely rare plant of which we have just a few.
