Magnolia foveolata NV 050 Magnolia foveolata NV 050

Extraordinary yellow-flowered evergreen species from northern Vietnam on this collection. The trees in the wild were all small second-growth trees with mature examples nowhere in evidence. That night we slept in a nearby farmer's house with our sleeping bags on wide flooring planks of magnolia wood - mystery solved where the big trees went. Best in a sheltered spot from freezing winds.

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.

Raukaua laetevirens (syn.Pseudopanax) Raukaua laetevirens (syn.Pseudopanax)

Devil's Elder. This is a hardy large evergreen shrub to 15'-20' tree from Chile and Argentina where it grows in shaded situations along streams or bogs.

A reintroduction of this rare species that has been introduced just once by Steve Hootman in 1995.  This is from the same population but does provide a bit more genetic diversity as the ones cultivated from the 1995 introduction come from just one or two plants.  Hardy in Seattle.

Styrax sp. YuGu 059 Styrax sp. YuGu 059

A medium sized tree in the wild, this is from the same remote mountain which yielded the first introductions of Schefflera fengii and Rhododendron sinofalconeri some 25 years ago and has not been revisited since. Vigorous tree with copious white flowers we presume followed by nutlets.

Meliosma sp. CGG 14006 Meliosma sp. CGG 14006

We have not keyed this Chinese species yet but it is on the docket.  This was a small tree growing in bamboo and mixed forest at good elevation.  The leaves are glossy and attractive but the almost lilac-like heads of white scented flowers are the thing.  Small shiny black fruit.

It has nice rounded evergreen leaves with catkins 8"-10" long in shades of green and purple in the winter. Just when SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder - ratchets up, Carl talks us down from the ledge. Tough plant and tolerant of some dry.

Skimmia arborescens FMWJ 13377 ex. Skimmia arborescens FMWJ 13377

F2 seed-grown plants from the original wild collection of this plant which in the wild can reach fairly epic heights of 25'!  We've seen one a few feet shorter in southern China and that memory is carved deeply into the memory banks.  Quite upright and dense when young and eventually spreading out with age when in deep shade.  Black fruit, flowers insignificant comparatively.  The important thing is, you will have one and your friends won't!  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the mission of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.

Eucryphia x intermedia 'Rostrevor' Eucryphia x intermedia 'Rostrevor'

Why don't we all have a Eucryphia in our gardens?  Few trees compare to this narrow evergreen - just 8' wide when 20'+ tall and when in flower it's Swoon City.  Impressive 2" white flowers are borne in abandon in early summer.  This likes a cool root run but we don't get hot here.

Cornus hongkongensis ssp. tonkinensis Cornus hongkongensis ssp. tonkinensis FMWJ 13145

Handsome evergreen tree species from a northern Vietnam seed collection that should be hardy down to zone 8b and maybe 8a.  We have not flowered this yet but expect this to have flowers with very attractive white or yellowish bracts. The leaves are somewhat pendulous and curved with the midrib bent like a bow adding a pleasing complexity.

Alnus glutinosa 'Imperialis' Alnus glutinosa 'Imperialis'

Awesome Cutleaf Alder. This selection of this European species makes our own native Alnus rubra weep in envy. The extreme ornament of the foliage makes us weep as well but with tears of joy. Rapid growth in rich moist bottomland, slower in average settings.

Styrax japonicus CDHM 14610 Styrax japonicus CDHM 14610

Exceptionally beautiful Styrax from our 2012 collection in Guizhou.  We'd have thought this something other than japonicus but our friend Steve Hootman saw this population in bloom and keyed it to S. japonicus which surprised him as it was almost too nice.  His photos of this on the mountain are breathtaking.

Awesome tree Witch Hazel family from north Vietnam where this Josh McCullough collection hails from.  We saw this broadly vase-shaped 50' tree in the Dayaoshan in China.  Large evergreen leaves unfurl with bronze tones from large flattened stipules.  Small filamentous reddish flowers which we have yet to see.  Zone 9 and hoping for warmer parts of zone 8.

Platycarya strobilacea MD15-01 Platycarya strobilacea MD15-01

Curious and uncommon walnut relative from our Asian seed collection where we found this as part of the rich mixture of trees and shrubs on steep mountain flanks. Pinnate leaves harkening to the family Juglandaceae but instead of nuts in a hard shell, this has nutlets in vertical ornamental cones which persist all winter.  Too cool for school!

Lomatia ferruginea Lomatia ferruginea

A superb Argentine & Chilean shrub to small tree for the mildest of gardens. There are ridiculously mild gardens around here that can grow this and it is a ceaseless lament that ours is too cold for this fantastic plant. Related to Embothrium or Chilean Fire Tree, this has intricate flowers of yellow and red but the Silk Oak-like foliage outshines the bloom. Has the Proteaceae dislike of phosphorous.  Very few.

Variegated Pagoda Dogwood.  A variegated form of this alternate-leafed dogwood that is quite choice and can be seen in our shade garden.  This lacks the big bracts of our native dogwood but still has true scented creamy flowers arrayed in flattened disks along the tiered branches.  Superb foliage and form and is rock hardy.

Cutting-grown plants of this evergreen Dogwood from our collection in Asia. Quite a handsome plant in both the wild and our garden which sports soft yellow flowers in June and July.

Sycopsis sinensis MD12-800 Sycopsis sinensis MD12-800

Our collection of this hardy evergreen, Asian Witch Hazel relative.  This will become a small tree in time to 20'-30' and can be very useful as screening or a dark backdrop.  Here, the Feb-March flowers forego any petal modesty and celebrate their sexual parts on full display.  That brings back sadly distant memories. Undamaged by our winters in full exposure.

Polyspora longicarpa NV 037 Polyspora longicarpa NV 037

This is a remarkable species in the Theaceae or Camellia family,  Native to Yunnan, Myanmar and Vietnam with this collection hailing from the latter.  Evergreen trees rarely reaching 50' or more but doubt if you will have to contend with that eventuality!  Large white flowers with yellow anthers occur in late winter and early spring.  Suitable only for very mild gardens and worth trying on a wall.

Stewartia aff. pteropetiolata NV 053 Stewartia pteropetiolata NV 053

This is exciting even as a young seedling with new growth colored in reddish tones and besides, what is not to like about any Stewartia?  The leaf petioles on this species have an upper slight wing to them hence the species name.  A small tree which can get to 35' in the wild.  Small white flowers in late spring show its relation to Camellias.  A sheltered spot is best.
