Acer buergerianum var. formosanum Acer buergerianum var. formosanum

This rather tender evergreen species comes from subtropical forests in Taiwan where it is endemic. As it differs markedly from the species, there is some thought that it might be something different altogether.  Good heat tolerance and this can tolerate some frost.  Our plants are cutting-grown from a plant we received from the University of Florida.

Acer oblongum (syn. albopurpurascens) Acer oblongum (syn. albopurpurascens)

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.

Begonia taiwaniana MWT237 Begonia taiwaniana MWT237

Mark Weathington of the Raulston Arboretum at NCSU introduced this goody from Taiwan.  Narrow blade leaves are maculated in white and the upright stems bear small pink flowers in mid to late summer.  A very interesting new addition to the hardy Begonia palette as this has a different look than what one usually sees.  Mulch if winter is wicked.

Disporopsis taiwanensis BSWJ 3388 Disporopsis taiwanensis BSWJ 3388

This evergreen Solomon Seal lookalike represents a rare introduction from Taiwan by our friends at Crug Farm.  Originally described as the new species, taiwanensis in 1989, this was sunk into the Chinese species pernyi by Govaerts in 2000.  We could live with that if it was pernyi var. taiwanensis to indicate its unique geographical provenance.  Pretty cool either way.

Pittosporum daphniphylloides var. daphniphylloides DJHT 99111 Pittosporum daphniphylloides var. daphniphylloides DJHT 99111

A Hinkley collection from Taiwan of this surprisingly tough broad-leafed evergreen shrub.  We have planted it out in full exposure here in our heinous windy maritime steppe and it survives far better than it should having taken 10F.  We should really be brought up on charges.  We can imagine if being glorious in a more sheltered position where it can grow 10'-15' tall with rounded clusters of fragrant small yellow flowers.

While typically grown in pots and overwintered in a cool frost free spot, we've grown these in rotted cedar logs or on mossy boulders and simply protected them during cold snaps and have had excellent success with these outdoors.  Excellent drainage is key.  These will increase nicely through small offsets and who doesn't love orchids in the garden?

Podophyllum pleianthum var. alba Podophyllum pleianthum var. alba

Our first thought after acquiring this and temporarily satisfying the plant lust monkey on our back, was "Why would anyone want a white-flowered pleianthum?" The flowers are surprising good, that's why. Large for the species and well-formed, with the petals fully expanded and not crepe-paper crumpled- which we enjoy - as is often the case. These are young plants.

Pteris wallichiana Pteris wallichiana

This was one of those "Holy shit - lookit that fern!" moments when we first spotted this species growing at the base of soaring pinnacles of vertical peaks in Guizhou, China where it was not intimidated in the least and perfectly in scale.  Massive 4'-6' wide fronds 6'-8' tall in the wild and clumping.  Likely smaller in cultivation but still BIG!  Zone 7b-9.

A superb collection of this Strawberry Saxifrage by the Wynn-Jones of Crug Farm who found this in the Hsitou area of Taiwan. Fantastic green leaves variegated in silver-white and while it could be our imagination taking wing after being bowled over by the foliage, the white flowers seem larger than usual on their 18"-24" stems.  Moist, shade, zone 6-9.

Syneilesis sp. (as intermedia) DJHT12101 ex Taiwan Syneilesis intermedia DJHT 12101 ex Taiwan

A Hinkley collection from Taiwan of this interesting Composite whose deeply dissected foliage carries the day and is especially effective in half sun.  Not a genus that leaps to the fore when thinking of flowers, this is a great foliage plant and intriguing in first growth.  Collected as S. intermedia, this is most likely the species subglabrata.

Tetradium glabrifolium Tetradium glabrifolium

A handsome tree in the Rutaceae with walnut-like pinnate leaves whose leaflets have a more sharply defined point.  Small white to yellowish flowers become attractive shiny black seeds.and both are held in in thyrsiform clusters - basically an umbel that is branched in multiples.  Widely distributed across Asia, the essential oil from this has shown great promise as a larvicide against the Asian Tiger Mosquito, which judging by the name, an effective control would be very, very nice!

Thalictrum urbainii 'Taiwan Baika' Thalictrum urbainii 'Taiwan Baika'

Very cute dwarf with more floral punch than expected from a plant a mere 8"-12" tall.  White powder-puff flowers go on for weeks and are held nicely above maidenhair foliage.  This Japanese selection of a Taiwan mountain species correctly suggests growing in the rock garden but is also perfect for that small spot begging for something perfect.

Tricyrtis lasiocarpa DJHT12067 Tricyrtis lasiocarpa DJHT12067

A collection of this vigorous Taiwan Toadie from Dan Hinkley.  This is quite rhizomatous making a good clump quickly which is really what you want, as the more sturdy stems clad in darkly spotted leaves holding speckled lavender-pink flowers in late summer, the better, we always say.  Light shade and can take a lot of sun if given ample water.

Veratrum formosanum f. alba Veratrum formosanum f. alba

Rare ghostly white flowered variant of the typically dark-flowered Veratrum formosanum . We lusted after this plant since the 90's after seeing it recorded in the Flora of Taiwan and finally secured it from the legendary Jim Sutherland at Scotland's Ardfearn Nursery just a few years ago. So excited we tossed our caber. Is it better than the typical formosanum? No. More collectible? Oh, hell yeah!. Deer resistant.

A collection by Philip Mac Dougall from Taiwan that we have yet to identify as we have not had the time to sit back with a glass of cerebellum enhancement fluid in the evening while we pore over the Flora of Taiwan.  The glossy leaves are ample justification for growing this evergreen shrub.  White flowers we presume.
