Viburnum hoanglienense FMWJ 13289 ex. Viburnum hoanglienense FMWJ 13289 ex.

F2 plants from the original wild collection of this rare species. This is a very handsome thing with superb glossy textured leaves and showy displays of red fruit. Just looking at it, we thought - bummer, can't possibly be hardy but heard from one of the collectors that it handled zero Fahrenheit so woohoo!  We later saw for ourselves the reason why as we climbed on Mt Fansipan, "The Roof of Indochina' and saw this growing near the summit.  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the mission of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.

Viburnum cylindricum YuGu 023 Viburnum cylindricum YuGu 023

This collection is from what we regard as the southern form of this populous Asian species. What makes this special is that this was from the 10000' summit of this virtually unknown mountain and surely must be the highest elevation that this form grows.  That, plus being one of the toughest days we have had in the field. This makes a good show

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.

Ficus afghanistanica 'Silver Lyre' Ficus johannis subsp. afghanistanica 'Silver Lyre'

Leave it to Sean Hogan to make selections of a species that hardly anyone grows or knows.  Thanks to him, we grow it and are on a steep learning curve.  This has silvery leaves nicely lobed and revels in heat and will take dry conditions perfectly which only increases its hardiness.  Thriving in Portland.  This can produce small edible fruit.  Deciduous by the way.

Viburnum farreri 'Nanum' Viburnum farreri 'Nanum'

Dwarf, slow growing and ever so compact version of this late winter to early spring light pink flowering shrub. Pink flowers on bare twigs hold up well even when frozen at 20F and the sight of these valiant harbingers of spring sends the black dog of winter back to its kennel.  Our 28 year old plant is a 4' twiggy triumph of intentional foliar density especially in fall when it turns reddish-purple.

Very easy to grow and will tolerate short exposure to light frost but best no colder than zone 9. The hummingbirds loved it.

Colquhounia coccinea Colquhounia coccinea

Himalayan Bush Mint.  Surprisingly hardy species - the gestalt at first glance is gotta be tender - that will be valuable late summer-fall color.  Soft felty leaves on a plant that can hit ten feet tall, you grow this not for the aromatic and pettable foliage but for the tubular orange-red flowers in September-October mainly.  Cut to the ground by hard frost but will regrow and would totally groove on a wall in its colder zones.  Pronounced ko-hoo-nia.

Tasmannia lanceolata 'Mount Wellington' (syn. Drimys) Tasmannia lanceolata 'Mount Wellington' (syn. Drimys)

We have just a scant few of this dwarf form of the Tasman Mountain Pepper which we presume to be from an exposed high elevation site on Mt Wellington. This is ideally suited to rock gardens where it will make a slow and low ball of reddish stems bejeweled with white flowers and oh so peppery black fruit. We were given this plant by the late Michael Wickenden of Cally Gardens in Scotland. Possibly the first introduction to the US.  Small plants of this small rarity.

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.

Cotoneaster sp. ZHNP628 Cotoneaster sp. ZHNP628

A deciduous shrubby Cotoneaster collected in Asia by Arlen Hill who owns one of our favorite nurseries, Keeping It Green. This was a scrambler on a rocky cliff but will be a small shrub in the garden. Such a varied genus from groundcover to small trees with the shared attributes of pollinator-irresistible white flowers and red fruit for fall and early winter interest. Someday in our dotage when discretionary time is abundant and we tire of whittling to fill the hours, we will fire up Flora of China online and puzzle through the key to a proper identity for this species.
