Awesome species endemic to coastal Chile and has excellent foliage coupled with exotic butterfly flowers of varying shades of pink doodled in pencil lines and all surrounding a soft yellow eye. Bummer it is not hardy but rock on that it is winter dormant and easily overwintered inside. Quite drought tolerant when dormant.
This is pretty much our default tree whenever anyone asks about a good small tree. This has zero bad habits that we know about it and is a rapid grower with small evergreen leaves and minute yellow flowers that smell heavenly of marzipan or something similarly decadent.
A grand small-scale evergreen tree for our area. This is what Boxwood dreams about becoming - much as I dream about being tall and thin, the humble Box envys this Azara with its perfect variegated leaves and tiny yellow flowers packing a big fragrance and all on a small tree frame.
Those dang taxonimists submerged our beloved Bolax glebaria into this newfangled genus and it jes' turns us into a couple of ornery ol' cusses. Oh well, a name is but an artificial convention that is nowhere near what the plant calls itself. Tight little hummock former for the rock garden.
The only plant we grow in the Berberidopsidaceae and after typing this, thank god. One of the choicest woodland plants and a connoisseur climber for mild sheltered gardens. A well-grown Berberidopsis in your garden makes you a garden queen. Not gender specific. Evergreen, late summer deep coral flowers.
This a bigger version of the little B. penna-marina ssp. alpina commonly found in nurseries. We never see this offered which is just a shame since it is a great fern. Well, not such a shame since a little exclusivity never hurts. This makes a dense groundcover of evergreen foliage.
One of the woody plants that we recommend to people if they want to be garden showoffs. (and really, who doesn't have a little of that?) This has the most outrageous red hanging lantern flowers - we just never fail to be thrilled by the sight. Narrow willow-llike evergreen leaves on this Chilean which likes a cool sheltered spot.
A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering. 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.
Yet another cool evergreen from Chile. In the wild this can reach 40'-50' tall but in our NW gardens it remains a large shrub. One inch pure white flowers in early summer are quite nice and with luck the reddish seedpods will follow. Best in part shade
It is unlikely your neighbor will have this if you are into one-upmanship. This is a self-clinging evergreen climber from Chile which would perfectly cover a large stump for example. It has fuzzy and tubby bottlebrush flowers that are an ethereal pinky lavender-white. Best in a sheltered spot.
A knockout display when it is well established. This is something David Mason at Hedgerows Nursery thought we should have and was he ever right. Dense crowns of foliage subtend numerous 2'+ spikes of white flowers. This is best in a sheltered lightly shaded spot.
Choice dwarf form of the former Pernettya mucronata from a Vojtech Holubec collection at Torres del Paine, Chile above treeline.. This little evergreen gets 6"-12" tall with small white flowers and white to lilac berries. Gently rhizomatous and a good rock garden candidate liking acid soil. Thanks to Ben Kamm for making this goody available.
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.
Chilean Myrtle is such a good plant but is going to best grown in mild gardens or nicely sheltered microclimates. There are plenty of such suitable gardens in the NW but don't try this if you garden at 1000' in the foothills of the Olympics or Cascades for example. Evergreen aromatic leaves with fragrant white flowers and edible fruit.
A plant we got from Michael Wickenden at Cally Gardens in Scotland who collected this in Chile. The flowers on this form seem a bit larger than typical as if they need to get any better. Wild orange-red dangling tubular pouches beckon man and hummingbird alike. Can clamber up into trees or kept small and shrubby by a bit of clipping.
A rare Myrtle fromTierra del Fuego which is quite hardy here and just the sweetest thing with evergreen aromatic leaves and small white flowers in summer which are followed by pink/white pearly edible berries. A perfect little plant. Good moist soil in some shade.
A rare member of the Scrophulariaceae from the Chilean Andes. This has done great in our shade garden where the shade, moist but well drained soil and tasty helpings of dairy manure really help. Evergreen leaves except if real cold and red tubular flowers on up to 18" stems in early summer.
Devil's Elder. This is a hardy large evergreen shrub to 15'-20' tree from Chile and Argentina where it grows in shaded situations along streams or bogs. It does well in our shade garden without being a tippler where it has handled nicely brief dips to 10F. The flowers are loose panicles of interesting wee green things which give way to purplish brown fruit.
Lightly spined upright evergreen shrub from South America that fills that critical need of having a woody member of the Verbena family in the garden. Light lavender tubular flowers with a flare corolla tip and lavender berries follow. The small leaves have some texture working for them with deeply impressed veins.
Chilean Guava. Our mama plant is loaded with fruit in the greenhouse right now and it's delicious. One of the perfect evergreen shrubs for mild climates, this has shiny aromatic leaves. Nice white flowers followed by ruby flavorful fruit the size of average Blueberries and all on a broadly columnar plant to 8' tall.
We are so close to being able to grow this outside that we literally can see the 2 miles to downtown PT where this would thrive but no, we're the nursery on the hill in the cold pocket. Yes, a little touchy about it. Flashy variegated leaves in pinks-creams-yellows-whites and greens go with the pink flowers and tasty fruit on this Chilean Guava.
