Rarely offered seed-grown collection of this Asian tree in the Styrax family.

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.

Athrotaxis cupressoides Athrotaxis cupressoides

Pencil Pine.  Very interesting conifer from the highlands of Tasmania where it is threatened due to fires and degradation of habitat from grazing and too many Eucalyptus.  The leaf scale are tightly appressed to the stem so the green branchlets do look very pencil-like.  A moderate grower with old-growth trees 30'-60' but you won't have to worry about it - it takes a while.

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............

Azara microphylla Azara microphylla

This is pretty much our default tree whenever anyone asks about a good small tree. This has zero bad habits that we know about it and is a rapid grower with small evergreen leaves and minute yellow flowers that smell heavenly of marzipan or something similarly decadent.

Azara microphylla 'Variegata' Azara microphylla 'Variegata'

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.

Betula austrosinensis FMWJ13149 Betula insignis subsp. fansipanensis FMWJ13149

A collection from Lao Cai, Phansi Pu valley in northern Vietnam at 1760 meters. A lot of plants have been proving hardy for us coming out of north Vietnam and we look forward to testing this 2011 collection. This looks like it will be a fine tree with bronzed new growth. We're guessing zone 7 until we know better. An interesting rarity.

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. Later, the round red fruit go from being attractive ornament on the tree to tasty snacks on the trail. Which is how we got ours.

Our selection of an exceptional seedling from a Vietnam collection.

Crinodendron hookerianum Crinodendron hookerianum

One of the woody plants that we recommend to people if they want to be garden showoffs.  (and really, who doesn't have a little of that?)  This has the most outrageous red hanging lantern flowers - we just never fail to be thrilled by the sight. Narrow willow-llike evergreen leaves on this Chilean which likes a cool sheltered spot.

Crinodendron patagua Crinodendron patagua

Yet another cool evergreen from Chile.  In the wild this can reach 40'-50' tall but in our NW gardens it remains a large shrub.  One inch pure white flowers in early summer are quite nice and with luck the reddish seedpods will follow.  Best in part shade

Decaisnea fargesii CDHM 14633 Decaisnea fargesii CDHM 14633

Our collection from Leipingshan at 1800 meters in Guizhou in the fall of 2012.  We always get a kick out of this species with its long tropical pinnate leaves. insignificant pale flowers and extraordinarily significant clustered large blue bean pod fruit looking otherwordly.  Narrow small tree and very easy.

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.

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.

Ficus 'Ruth Bancroft' Ficus 'Ruth Bancroft'

This is a hybrid named by Sean Hogan which was found at the Ruth Bancroft gardens and is a suspected cross between the creeping Ficus pumila and the big edible fig, Ficus carica.  It does seem to be perfectly intermediate.  A rambler/scrambler for a sunny spot good for winding through shrubs.  Zone 8, tiny figs.

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.

Coast Silktassle.  Exceptional selection by Wayne Roderick of this fine West Coast native evergreen shrub.  This has a much denser habit than 'James Roof' and very profuse greenish 8"-10" catkins sometimes purple tinged in the early spring.  Tough plant needed not much from you and deer proof.

Huodendron tibeticum Huodendron tibeticum

Simply elegant broadleaf evergreen tree with a delightfully smooth bark that exfoliates in thin sheets to reveal the invitingly supple and softly mocha trunks like the limbs of a lover on the moonlit beach of a tropical assignation which sadly occurs only in your Daquiri-fueled dreams. Small white flowers in spring.

Ilex aquifolium 'Ferox Argentea' Ilex aquifolium 'Ferox Argentea'

This unique holly, sometimes called the SIlver Hedgehog holly, is a "Great Plant Pick".  It features a beautiful creamy band around the each leaf.   New shoots are an attractive purple, contrasting the older foliage.  It's a full size holly, but can be kept smaller with pruning.  Easy to grow.  A male, so it won't spread into the wild.

Ilex aquifolium 'Handsworth New Silver' Ilex aquifolium 'Handsworth New Silver' AGM

Extraordinary selection that does not have a feature less than perfect.  Distinctly spaced white teeth march along the wide silver-white margin which surrounds the green center of the leaf.  The dark purplish stems seem to make the white whiter and the green greener.  A compact variety, this will get to 6'-8' in 10 years or so.  This is a female clone so if you want the copious display of red berries, you will need one of those useless males.

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.

Luma apiculata Luma apiculata

Chilean Myrtle is such a good plant but is going to best grown in mild gardens or nicely sheltered microclimates. There are plenty of such suitable gardens in the NW but don't try this if you garden at 1000' in the foothills of the Olympics or Cascades for example. Evergreen aromatic leaves with fragrant white flowers and edible fruit.

Luma apiculata "hardy form" Luma apiculata - Hardy Form

A selection we imported via Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy from the UK that was propagated from plants which survived the prolonged Big Freeze of December 2010.  An event like this winnows the posers and despite the horrors, is a great opportunity to assess which plants have some unforeseen hardiness genetics. Evergreen shrub to small tree with gorgeous exfoliating cinnamon colored bark, white fragrant flowers and edible blue-black fruit.  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the mission of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.
