Callicarpa rubella Callicarpa rubella

This Beauty Berry is from the extensive Callicarpa collection at Stephen F. Austin Arboretum in Texas which they graciously shared with us.  Softly hairy leaves somewhat dark tinged and the usual flamboyant display of purplish fruit in late summer and fall.  Good heat tolerant species.

Huodendron tibeticum Huodendron tibeticum

Simply elegant broadleaf evergreen tree with a delightfully smooth bark that exfoliates in thin sheets to reveal the invitingly supple and softly mocha trunks like the limbs of a lover on the moonlit beach of a tropical assignation which sadly occurs only in your Daquiri-fueled dreams. Small white flowers in spring.

Coptis omeiensis Coptis omeiensis

Beautiful clumping species that may well be the queen of the genus. Or are we granting royalty because it is new on the scene? Maybe, but it is awfully good. This makes a stout small clump of evergreen fern-like leaves from which emerge in spring the peculiarly Coptis greenish-yellow flowers. From China.

Lonicera crassifolia Lonicera crassifolia SEH085

A Steve Hootman collection from China of this quite unique creeping Honeysuckle.  This is a Kinnikinnik or Arctostaphylos uva-ursi alternative making a mat of small rounded green leaves turning rich purple/red/bronze tones in winter.  Small light yellow Honeysuckle flowers are sprinkled throughout.  Very cool.

Vaccinium padifolium Vaccinium padifolium

Madeiran Blueberry.  We have the late Art Dome to thank for sharing this Vaccinium native to Madeira with us.  He grew this beautifully in his Seward park garden but it really does need a mild garden.  Big flowers for a blueberry and lots of tasty fruit.  We were all grazing last summer.

Acer sterculiaceum subsp. franchetii H2MD 010 Acer sterculiaceum subsp. franchetii H2MD 010

Our collection from Asia of this fine medium sized tree.  The usually 3-lobed (sometimes 5) leaves are handsome indeed with the new growth often flushed with a light copper overlay.  Excellent at the woodland edge or partly shaded garden sheltered from the worst of the drying sun and wind which plagues us here.

Parthenocissus semicordata HeHeHe 243 Parthenocissus semicordata HeHeHe 243

A collection by Goteborg BG from a hardier area of this kin to Boston ivy.  Grows much the same way climbing into trees or self-adhering to the brick walls of that historic manor house where you live and garden in your fever dreams after falling asleep perusing seed catalogs in the dark of winter.  Great fall color.

Ericameria nauseosa var. nauseosa Ericameria nauseosa var. nauseosa

Rubber Rabbitbush. Drought tolerant shrub of the arid sagebrush steppe and plains. So named for the felty leaves and flexible twigs. This is in the aster family and in late summer and fall will fairly cover itself in small yellow flowers which may not be the best smelling as indicated by the name but damn its nice!

Leptospermum rupestre Leptospermum rupestre

One of the hardiest Leptospermums, this creeping form is from the alpine areas of Tasmania and has grown for many years at the Arboretum in Seattle. Evergreen leaves with small white flowers, this would be a shame not to have it in the rock garden and a greater shame not to have it spilling over a wall.

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.

Cornus capitata MD12-829 Cornus capitata MD12-829

Cutting-grown plants of this evergreen Dogwood from our collection in Asia. Quite a handsome plant in both the wild and our garden which sports soft yellow flowers in June and July. Later, the round red fruit go from being attractive ornament on the tree to tasty snacks on the trail. Which is how we got ours.

Lonicera involucrata var. ledebourii Lonicera involucrata var. ledebourii

Twinberry Honeysuckle.  This the southern variant of our native shrubby Honeysuckle which here in Washington has tubular yellow flowers but down in southern Oregon and California, these flowers are little firecrackers of orangish-red.  Tough plant liking wet sites but quite tolerant of drier spots.  Hummers like this!

Nifty groundcover introduced from Taiwan by Crug Farm in Wales.  This is a good spreader though easy to keep in bounds and prefers a loose organic rich soil that doesn't get too dry.  Great under shrubs and perennials and forms a feathery dense mat with white starry flowers.  Evergreen unless very cold.

Lilium nepalense Lilium nepalense

Nepal Lily.  One of our favorite Lilies and one we saw in Arunachal Pradesh near Bhutan growing in low scrub on a sunny hillside.  This is a particularly good form with very large pendant yellow-green flowers with a chocolate maroon throat.  Really pretty amazing.  Creeps about underground.

Symplocarpus foetidus Symplocarpus foetidus

This is the East Coast Skunk Cabbage which while common to swamps and boggy areas in PA and NY is an exotic collector's plant here.  Tubby black-purple or yellow flecked brown-purple flowers squat on the bare soil before the big green Hosta-like leaves appear.  Love it.

Taxus baccata 'Amersfoort' Taxus baccata 'Amersfoort'

A bizarre antler-like sport of the common Yew found oddly enough on the grounds of the Insane Asylum in Holland for which it is named.  This is one crazy plant.  (sorry)  Open strikingly architectural growth habit with such strict attention to lines and form as to be  compulsive. (sorry again)

Lobelia tupa Lobelia tupa

Amazing Chilean Lobelia that is perfectly hardy, especially if you mulch it during nasty cold snaps.  This gets multiple stalks to 7' high with spires of tubular red flowers for weeks which beckon Hummingbirds from afar.  Highly dramatic and surprisingly easy.  Good rich soil.

Disporum longistylum 'Night Heron' Disporum longistylum 'Night Heron'

Excellent selection from the former Heronswood nursery of this robust woodlander noted for the dark hued stems especially in the new growth.  This is an exhuberant grower sending up big asparagus spears in late spring which branch out at 3'-4' with creamy bells followed by showy fruit.

Syneilesis x hybrida Syneilesis x hybrida

A hybrid between two fab foliage species, Syneilesis palmata and S. aconitifolia.  We have Diana Reeck of Collector's Nursery to thank for these goodies.  Silken silver conical new growth unfurling to deeply dissected round leaves - nothing like it!  Flowers are an afterthought.

Hacquetia epipactis Hacquetia epipactis

There ain't nuthin' like this.  Early spring yellow stars followed by leathery lobed green leaves in a dense low mound.  It is the early yellow flowers that steal the show in part because they have so little competition and in part because they are so unique.

Ephedra regeliana Ephedra regeliana

Miniature Joint Fir.  Choice species from the bleak areas of the "stans" - Afghan, Uzbek, Kazak, Krygh, Paki and Tajikistan.  This primitive Conifer relative likes it rough - just good drainage and a hot, sunny dry spot are it's simple wants.  This is small enough for a trough planter.

Primula x forsteri 'Bileckii' Primula x forsteri 'Bileckii'

This is a dandy cross between Primula minima which is really tricky to grow and P. hirsuta which is easy.  The result has the charm of minima without the temperament and the ease of cultivation which hirsuta offers.  Great foliage and vibrant reddish flowers.  Good drainage and morning sun.

A refined shade plant that would grace any plant connoisseur's garden yet is perfectly happy to hang with us average Joes. Leaves evoking Anemone and pendant flowers combining pastels and lavenders in an understated parasol of exquisite design and dimension. A plant that is not on the radar of a lot of gardeners so let's keep it to ourselves.

Steve Hootman, curator of the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden, often pats himself on the back for collecting this exceptional species in China and each spring as our plants flower, we murmur attaboys and give him virtual high fives. Loves some shade, great foliage and spring pink flowers.

Ophiopogon umbraticola 'Sparkler' Ophiopogon umbraticola 'Sparkler'

This is an indicator plant useful for delineating highly refined plant geeks.  Perfection of scale and form with very narrow slightly curled leaves and delicate white flowers followed by improbably rich blue shiny fruit.  Involuntary moaning is perfectly acceptable.  Very slow clumper.

Cardamine trifolia Cardamine trifolia

A no-fuss restrained yet refined evergreen Cardamine which is nearly faultless.  We haven't found a fault yet but most overachievers are hiding something deep under that charm and industry.  Rest assured, this will never go postal in your garden.  Dark green dense leaves set off  flowers of of purest white in early summer.

Primula florindae Primula florindae

There is no ignoring this Primrose when it is in flower.  Some Primula are wee subtle things with no greater effect than the sound of a distant flute teasing the edge of hearing.  Primula florindae is a full triumphant symphony with you sitting in the orchestra pit.  Big heads of many nodding yellow or orange shaded fragrant flowers.

Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Golden Arrow' Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Golden Arrow'

Fun new selection of Persicaria with softly golden foliage which is a great backdrop for the 18"-24" flower stems bearing spikes of flowers the same color as the Pope's new ruby slippers.  Easy and very hardy and thriving in a good moisture retentive soil.

Primula kisoana Primula kisoana

A fun Primrose that when settled in and enjoying a rich crumbly soil can really make a nice patch.  This spreads by underground rhizomes and is a good colonizer.  Some plants when you say colonizer it rightly sounds an alarm much like a submarine klaxon on an emergency dive.  Not so this.  Rich tomato pink flowers above season interest-extending felty foliage.
