Alstroemeria pelegrina Alstroemeria pelegrina

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.

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.

Azara microphylla 'Variegata' Azara microphylla 'Variegata'

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.

Azorella trifurcata 'Nana' Azorella trifurcata 'Nana'

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.

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.

Crinodendron hookerianum Crinodendron hookerianum

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.

Crinodendron patagua Crinodendron patagua

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

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 'Confetti' Francoa appendiculata 'Confetti'

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.

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.

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 Luma apiculata

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.

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.

Ugni molinae Ugni molinae

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.

Ugni molinae 'Flambeau' Ugni molinae 'Flambeau'

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.

Ugni molinae 'Villarica Strawberry' Ugni molinae 'Villarica Strawberry'

This is a hardier and somewhat smaller-leaved form of the Chilean Guava that was recently introduced by Paul Barney from Pucon, Chile and which Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy brought into the US from the UK.  An excellent evergreen ornamental small shrub to 5' or 6' with scented white flowers and deep burnished red fruit in the fall which were said to be Queen Victoria's favorite fruit.  We expect this to handle at least a half zone colder.
