Begonia formosana Begonia formosana

We received this labeled as Begonia sp. Guizhou 2011 but which we strongly suspect is a Mark Weathington Taiwan collection in 2010.  We have the latter from Mark and the two are identical.  A compact species to be sure, with small pale green, angel's wing leaves held aloft by short stems. Pink flowers.

Sinopanax formosanus Sinopanax formosanus

Incredibly exciting rare ornamental Araliad from Taiwan where it can reach 30 feet tall.  Don't be scared by that as it will likely not attain those dimensions in your garden at least while you are the gardener!  Broadly orbicular leaves with 3-5 shallow lobes on stout branches makes this a riveting centerpiece.  These are seed-grown and best in mild gardens.

Pyrrosia lingua 'Variegata' Pyrrosia lingua 'Ogon Nishiki'

This choice evergreen Tongue Fern is notable for the yellowish variegation on its evergreen 12" long leaves and is likely conspecific with the clone sold as 'Variegata',  Pyrrosia are easy but require great drainage and unless you are planting it in a stumpery, rockery or slope, you will need to seriously amend with gravel, bark or assorted detritus of life.

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.

Disporopsis arisanensis Disporopsis arisanensis

Evergreen Solomon Seal relative from Taiwan via plantsman Ozzie Johnson. Loves moist shade in zones 7-9 where the rounded leaves on stems up to a foot shelter the hanging white bell flowers.  Combines well with all of those shade garden plants that any self respecting plant collector loves so rest assured that garden harmony will remain intact.

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.

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.

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 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.

A superb collection of this Strawberry Saxifrage by the Wynn-Jones of Crug Farm who found this in the Hsitou area of Taiwan.

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.

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!

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.

Blackberry Lily.

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.

We have just a handful of this choice form of the species in which the pinnae are distinctly undulated adding yet another layer of tasteful complexity to a species already awash in attributes.  It really isn't fair to be born with gorgeous 6'-7' fronds but do you have to flaunt undulation too?  Well, yes.
