Agapetes smithiana APA 022 - Red Calyx Form Agapetes smithiana APA 022 - Red Calyx Form

This epiphytic Vaccinium relative - indeed some have merged the two genera - is a stunner. Growing on trees in the cloud forests of the Himalaya, this forms woody lignotubers from which arise the branches clad in evergreen leaves which hold the narrow pendant yellow flowers in late winter and spring. This is an especially good form with red calyces. Tolerant of light frost and needs very good drainage.  Our overwintering hummingbirds love this in our greenhouse.

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.

Aucuba japonica f. longifolia Aucuba japonica f. longifolia

Excellent plant for that impossible situation where you need an evergreen shrub for dry shade.  This is a good narrow leafed version of an otherwise broader leafed plant.  Not much bothers Aucuba and this will chug along slowly - faster with water - to 5' to 7'  and simply looks good all the time.

Aucuba omeiensis DJHC 763 Aucuba omeiensis DJHC 763

A collection by Hinkley from Emeishan in Sichuan which some have placed in Aucuba chinensis var. chinensis but generally omeiensis is accepted.  Very distinctive with broad pale green leaves on a vigorous tree-like shrub which can hit 20'-30' at which point one can debate whether this is a tree or a shrub.  This is cutting-grown from a male clone and appreciates a shaded setting.  If you have been needing a conversation piece Aucuba............

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.

Brassaiopsis hispida cf. Brassaiopsis hispida cf.

A rare grand foliage plant from lower elevation in the eastern Sino-Himalaya.  Allied to Schefflera, this differs in its armor of spiny prickles and whose terminal inflorescense produces black fruit.  We offer this with some trepidation in fear of sparking a feeding frenzy among the Araliaceae collectors who are a particular subset of plant nerds that walk the knife edge of obsession that separates reason from Poe's " A Descent into a Maelstrom".  Before you knee-jerk and click add to cart, take your meds and wait an hour.  Of course this may well be sold out by then..........  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the mission of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.

Callistemon sp.  'Red Giant' Callistemon sp. 'Red Giant'

A goody from Ian Barclay, this bottlebrush incorporates the showy attributes of the big, flashy red flowers of the tender species into a big shrub that is pretty darned hardy for a lot of our milder PNW gardens. This handles our short dips to the mid teens and perhaps a little colder with age and careful siting. Give it some room - this gets 10x10' or more. Way cool.

Callistemon viridiflorus - Hardy Clone Callistemon viridiflorus - Hardy Clone

This clone of an already hardy bottlebrush species has been hardier than
the typical offering by a few degrees and personally, our most grievous
losses have been by a few degrees.  This is likely from a higher and
more exposed location in Tasmania as it is also more compact than
typical and has handled one winter where it went into single digits.

An old French hybrid, this is far less twitchy than some others in the genus and of a size far more suited to the home garden.  Sizable semi-deciduous ovate leaves are held on burgundy stems which terminate in fluffy plumes of pink flowers.  The flowers peak in early summer but continue to appear until early fall.  Tolerates more water than most Ceanothus and is hardier.
