Acer oblongum (syn. albopurpurascens) - Nursery Pick Up Only Acer oblongum (syn. albopurpurascens) - Nursery Pick Up Only

A collection of this evergreen species from Taiwan by Adam Black who is the Director of Peckerwood Gardens in Texas.  This Taiwan form was known as A. albopurpurascens but recently has been lumped into Acer oblongum.   We have not yet trialed this outside here but Crug Farm in Wales who grows this suggests a sheltered site protected from freezing winds.  We think it is a candidate for mild gardens here and may go deciduous.

Aucuba japonica 'Mangetsu' Aucuba japonica 'Mangetsu' - Nursery Pick Up Only

Very uncommon Japanese selection that came out of Asiatica Nursery at the end of its run.  This is a pretty stellar foliage plant whose new growth is richly colored in yellow which greens up as the leaves mature.  It is an unexpected and exciting eruption of color when growth commences and the muted colors of winter are in keeping with the season. Tough evergreen tolerant of dry shade but with water, it will grow faster.

Begonia emeiensis DJHC98479 Begonia emeiensis DJHC98479 - Nursery Pick Up Only

A Dan Hinkley collection from Mt Emei and touted as being hardy to Z7 but only by those in serious zonal denial.  That said, a customer told his that he mulches his deeply and it has survived our worst winters.  An attractive plant with late season pink flowers and well worth trying in a sheltered spot.

A plant of refinement to be sure.  One that is appreciated and admired by the higher echelons of gardening.  A collector's plant.  Different ways of saying that this is not a flamboyant show-stopper but a tasteful blend of delicate texture and airy soft pink flowers that helps make it all work.

Lily of the Valley.  A good selection of this stalwart species with a yellow margin to the leaves and said leaves are larger than average as well.  Typical scented white flowers.  There are numerous spellings of the cultivar name but since this is an American introduction, we can only assume this is correct.  Sad.

Our collection from Sichuan of this very ornamental and hardy species.  Hardy is a relative term of course - it is hardy here west of the Cascades especially with mulch in winter.  This is much like an improved Hedychium spicatum - larger growing with similar flowers but way more of them and packed more closely together for a superior display.

Chinese Bleeding Heart.  This is a departure from the ferny foliaged Dicentras we are used to by sporting broad leaflets looking more Astilbe than Dicentra.  Another departure is the cream to soft yellow flowers.  Vigorous in moist rich soil, this makes an impressive patch quickly.
