Gallon Pot
Great small golden fir selection that will slowly get to 3' high and 5' across. Brilliant gold in winter and then gold again after the spring growth flush. This can burn in full sun but if you site it like we did against the back of our red barn, why it looks perfect. If it gets a vertical leader, prune it out to keep the habit.

4" Pot
An intricate departure from the coarser Acanthus commonly found in gardens, this far more diminutive with low, finely cut, thistle-like foliage less than a foot tall and short 16" flower spikes with pink flowers backed by gray-green calyces. Like all Acanthus, this will spread by suckering rhizomes. Unlike all Acanthus, this is frustratingly slow (from a nurseryman's standpoint) and very easily managed if indeed you feel compelled to manage this slow and desirable expansion. Ours has been in the ground for several years and last year we finally were able to divide off a few pieces to pot up. Full sun and good drainage. Hardy here but perhaps mulch in cold zone 7. Might be ok with the same in zone 6 but we have no experience.

Medium Band Pot
A collection by Peter Zale of this evergreen maple from northern Vietnam. This is quite a new species to cultivation and has distinctive long entire leaves that are richly colored in red when in new growth. This has a lot of appeal ornamentally and fits into that collector niche for rarity and just not looking like a maple. We would guess that this is going to be a good Zone 9 plant and tolerant of only light frost. We can state for sure that several days of 15F is lethal but for those of you gardening in that amazingly mild climate anomaly that is Brookings Oregon, then this is the tree for you. We need to look more closely at our business plan - marketing an obscure crop to a specific small town that may not even know we exist might be a questionable tactic but maybe we will be surprised.

This is a fantastic narrow sugar maple which in your lifetime will have the dimensions of a telephone pole. A culvert stood on end. A vegetative cylinder. A tree for any narrow sunny place. A 25'-30' tall tree may have a uniform branching spread the length of its trunk of only 5'-7' which means given its trunk diameter, its branches are but 2'-3' long. Pretty awesome especially in fall when the leaves color up primarily in fiery orange but imbued with yellows and reds. There is a lot of confusion as to the correct name for this maple because for well over 100 years nurseries, botanic gardens and publications have been interchanging the names and characteristics of another columnar maple. Both of these trees were introduced by the same nursery in Massachusetts within two years of each other in the latter half of the 1800's. The best discussion and clarification of this is in an article in the Arnold Arboretum publication Arnoldia in 1983 by Michael Dathe. Given his personal knowledge of the original trees as well as access to historical records, we're going with his account. You can google this easily and it is a pretty interesting read. These are one year old grafts as of Jamuary of this writing. Established plants should grow a foot or so per year and expect a 10 year old tree to be 12' tall with a 1' spread here on the West Coast and perhaps a bit less in the Northeast. This is hardy to zone 4.

A handsome smaller maple from our collection on the botanical treasure trove of Damingshan in Guangxi in 2012. The leaves were distinct from the other species we saw on the mountain in that they had seven lobes. Something for us to puzzle out over the winter as it likely scarcely in cultivation. Very likely the same species as CDHM14727 as at this young age, the leaves are 5 lobed but may change with age. None of the trees we saw from the 14727 had the 7 lobes.

One of 3 maples we collected on Damingshan in 2012 which lies in Guangxi not far north of the Vietnam border. This was found on the lower slopes but we anticipate it will still be hardy and good in the maritime areas of the PNW. Five lobes to the leaves on a relatively small and rare tree. We have referred to this in the past as aff. kweilinense since that species has been noted on that mountain but now are withholding judgement until someone better versed in maples hazards a guess.

Large Band Pot
Wicked New Zealander with defensively formidable stiletto yellowish leaves in a low dense mound. This is not only deer resistant but wild boar, komodo dragon and grizzly bear resistant as well. This well-armored Kiwi has dioecious white flowers in a showy yellow plume. Locally, this has perhaps been best grown at Linda Cochran's famed garden on Bainbridge Island where it has simply become more architecturally arresting over the last 10 years. Fare to say Linda is ruthless when it comes to underachievers and the fact that this has remained very high on her list of favorites for the last decade is ample endorsement. Reasonable drainage and full to half sun..

One of the sweetest little bulbs imaginable! Summer dormant with dainty white flowers on 6" stems appearing in Aug into Sept. This grows in Portugal, Gibraltar and Morocco and is just as happy growing with our native Madrona (Arbutus menziesii) here as it is Olives back home. Grassy foliage up in fall and winter.

Our collection of this exceptional form of this distinctive vining species of Monkshood from the wooded slopes of Longshou in Sichuan. It was an overcast day on this our first day in the field in the fall of 2012. The summit of Longshou was completely socked in which is frustrating to a plant hunter aside from missing out on spectacular views. As we made our way down the mountain, we got below the clouds and exciting plants started to pop out - Schisandra in full red fruit, 5' tall Arisaema, Vaccnium delavayi and off to the right, a flash of bright color. We hurried over and it was an climbing Monkshood in full bloom with eye catching reddish-purple flowers. The excitement turned to lamentations as it was in bloom which meant there was no seed which was a total downer. The lamenting turned to exultant whoops as we noticed this species had aerial stem bulbils in the leaf axils which are even better than seed. We think this is quite superior to other color forms of this rare species and have given it the name 'Monk Gone Wild' because it is a pretty crazy color for a Monkshood plus this monk managed to remain technically celibate yet still have lots of children via these stem bulbils.

Large Band Pot
Rollicking twining Monkshood from China that delights in scrambling up into shrubs or onto thin trellage. Although a fine and aristocratic perennial, it remains devoid of snobbery embracing chainlink as if it were ornate wrought iron at an Antebellum mansion. Dusky lavender flowers in late summer and fall are hugely welcome. This is totally herbaceous dying completely back after flowering only to reemerge in spring bigger and better than before. The climbing Aconitum can be confusing to pin down as to proper identity but we finally sat down with flowers and foliage and key in hand and confirmed that this indeed A. episcopale. This is likely from a Diana Reeck collection in Yunnan in 1996 but that is best guessing. Nice blooming-sized plants.

This is from our seed collection on the Chongqing-Guangxi-Guizhou expedition in 2010. We found this on the summit of the previously unbotanized highest peak in the Wumingshan where it was clambering about on the top of the short scrub. We were struck by the large seed pods. Light blue flowers on this vining Monkshood.

Monkshood. This is a fine wildflower from Japan making attractive clumps with cowled dusky lavender flowers. This has been an easy doer increasing easily and the clumps are a snap to divide if you want more. And we always do. This not one for the sunny garden but best in morning sun or light shade. This doesn't get tall staying under 3' and isn't anything to worry about staking. Just a quietly lovely plant except for the unfortunate derisive comments it hurls at passing deer as it is completely unpalatable. Fortunately this commentary lies outside the range of human hearing so there is little chance of offending invited guests.

It's hard to keep up, we know! Uncommon and quite nice perennial with maple-like leaves with late season white flowers like gleaming tapers. Superb shade plant and one your gardening friend won't have. Very likely deer proof. Easy.

Small Band Pot These are sturdy plants which will grow like mad next year. Our collection from Guizhou in 2012 of this handsome in foliage vining kiwi fruit. The fruits themselves were quite a decent size, about the size of a walnut and made for a tasty trail snack. We don't have a species for this yet given the twin problems of us not being fluent in Actinidia and the fact that Guizhou has way too many species to make keying easy. Like most Actinidia, a vigorous vine needing trellage or in the case of the plants in the wild, a convenient tree. Hardiness is unknown but we will conservatively say zone 8 but really expect that 7 should be fine.

This is likely the first introduction to cultivation of this curious Theaceae or Tea family member from our collection just north of the Vietnam border in Guangxi Province. We unfortunately neglected to measure the sepals while on the mountain to see if this is var. glischroloma or var. macrosepala - our bad! But now we all have something to look forward to when it flowers and fruits rather than simply that it is flowering and fruiting. We will all be out measuring sepals and petals and the first to report in will pretty much rule. This is serious 99% pure Plant Crack and even we have to cut this stuff to be able to function well enough to do things like buy groceries. An evergreen shrub to 10' in the wild with long slightly drooping olive-green leaves prominently hirsute especially along the margins. Flowers are small and white and held along the underside of the branches somewhat akin to Eurya. The flowers give way to small black fruit. No idea how hardy this is but we are thinking zone 8 as this mountain endured a serious cold and ice event in 2008 and we saw no evidence of damage to these plants in 2010. We returned in 2012 and it is this collection that is being offered. Thanks to Tom Hudson for the accurate identification. Brilliant.

4" Pot A collection from northern Vietnam of this rare gesneriad by intrepid plant hunter Steve Hootman. This has vertical branches on a small shrub clad in dark green ranked leaves evocative of boxwood but that similarity is quickly dispelled when the tubular flame red flowers appear. The flowers are followed by interesting narrow and thin almost bean pod-like seed capsules dangling from wiry pedicels. Best grown frost-free, this likes an acid, free-draining soil as it is often epiphytic on trees or rocks. Excellent container plant which can be moved inside for the winter or simply kept as a houseplant as this is the same genus as the familiar Lipstick Vine. Steve, in addition to his mandated world-class expertise in Ericaceae, has in recent years developed an unprofitable but deeply personally rewarding interest - some might say obsession - in the Gesneriaceae and we are happy beneficiaries of his collecting prowess and now the trickle down effect has trickled further to you.
