Azara microphylla Azara microphylla

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.

Berberidopsis corallina Berberidopsis corallina

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.

Blechnum penna-marina ssp. penna-marina Blechnum penna-marina ssp. penna-marina

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.

Boquila trifoliolata Boquila trifoliolata

Chameleon Vine.  Crazy evergreen vine from the temperate forests of Chile and Argentina which only very recently was found to mimic the plants upon which it grows.  The leaves increase or decrease in size, get darker or lighter, broader or narrower depending on its host or nearby plant.  Flowers are insignificant on this science project.

Calceolaria arachnoidea Calceolaria arachnoidea

There is really nothing else like this plant from the Chilean Andes with its cobwebby silver foliage topped in summer by 8"-12" stems bearing small purple lady slipper flowers. You're not microdosing - it's for real. This is surprisingly hardy to zone 6 especially given snow cover but in our winters, good drainage is key as months of cold soggy soil is anathema.

Ercilla spicata (syn. E. volubilis) Ercilla spicata (syn. E. volubilis)

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.

Francoa appendiculata HCM 98045 ex Chile Francoa appendiculata HCM 98045 ex Chile

A Chilean collection of a very large form of this showy species. You can correctly infer that since this is larger, it is showier! Four foot tall or more flower stems arise from the bold basal rosettes of ruffled rounded leaves to display in grand fashion the wands of white-throated pink flowers. If size is important to you and if we are all being honest, it is, then this is the Francoa to which others must be measured and found lacking. Mild gardens here.

Gunnera tinctoria Gunnera tinctoria

Big dude with leaves up to 5' across.  Bizarre flower cones evocative of times distantly primordial and the whole package begs to be the centerpiece of the Jurassic Garden.  I can see it - Tree Ferns, Cardiocrinums, Big Leaf Rhododendrons and Podophyllums playing off the Gunnera.  Rich moist soil and mulch in winter.

Lobelia laxiflora ssp. angustifolia Lobelia laxiflora ssp. angustifolia

One of those perennial Lobelia that shouldn't be as hardy as it is but mountainous areas of southern Arizona and northern Mexico have plants with surprising hardiness.  A graceful clump of thin willowy leaves on stems 15"-24" tall with a profusion of midsummer tubular red flowers with a bright yellow throat.  Deciduous in winter, ours handles our brief drops to 10F with mulch.

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.

Lomatia ferruginea Lomatia ferruginea

A superb Argentine & Chilean shrub to small tree for the mildest of gardens. There are ridiculously mild gardens around here that can grow this and it is a ceaseless lament that ours is too cold for this fantastic plant. Related to Embothrium or Chilean Fire Tree, this has intricate flowers of yellow and red but the Silk Oak-like foliage outshines the bloom. Has the Proteaceae dislike of phosphorous.  Very few.

Luma apiculata "hardy form" Luma apiculata - Hardy Form

A selection we imported via Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy from the UK that was propagated from plants which survived the prolonged Big Freeze of December 2010.  An event like this winnows the posers and despite the horrors, is a great opportunity to assess which plants have some unforeseen hardiness genetics. Evergreen shrub to small tree with gorgeous exfoliating cinnamon colored bark, white fragrant flowers and edible blue-black fruit.  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the mission of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.

Mitraria coccinea 'Lago Puyehue' Mitraria coccinea 'Lago Puyehue'

Or as we like to say, Lah-go Poo-Yay-Way.  Presumably collected near the Chilean lake for which it is named, this uncommon clone is not horticulturally distinct from the Lake Caburqua form but does represent important genetic diversity in this monotypic genus.  Scrambling and rambling and climbing woody gesneriad with orange tubular flowers and hardy here in Zone 8.  A good wall plant for sure.

Mitraria coccinea 'Lake Caburgua' Mitraria coccinea 'Lake Caburgua'

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.

Myrteola nummularia Myrteola nummularia

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.

Raukaua laetevirens (syn.Pseudopanax) Raukaua laetevirens (syn.Pseudopanax)

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.

Rhaphithamnus spinosus Rhaphithamnus spinosus

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.
