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.

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.

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.

Pterostyrax psilophyllus var. leveillei CGG 14114 Pterostyrax psilophyllus var. leveillei CGG 14114

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  Our collection from Asia of what is likely the first introduction of this exceptional form of this equally exceptionally rare variety. Attractive leaves that are terminally cleft into bilateral lobes. The white flowers are the finest in the genus holding their own among the best of flowering trees. So much better than the straight species.

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.

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.

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.

Nothing willowy about this Chinese Willow! Stiffly erect stems hold large rounded leaves evocative of Magnolia than Salix.  Pinkish new growth adds to the charm and the catkins are impressive on this male clone.  Likes a good moist soil to to really do its best.

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.

Cornus mas 'Variegata' Cornus mas 'Variegata'

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. 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.

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.

Skimmia cf. multinervia NV 058 Skimmia cf. multinervia NV 058

Our collection of what we presume to be this species although given the distribution from Nepal into China and Vietnam, we wouldn't be shocked to see this species broken into varieties or subspecies. If it is this species, give it some room as it can hit 40' tall as a venerable old-growth specimen but expect much less in the garden. Upright evergreen with pale butter-white flowers and blue-black fruit.

Populus maximowiczii 141-96A Populus maximowiczii

This is regarded as one of the most beautiful of the poplar species and well worth growing if you have rich moist soil, room and a need for a fast-growing deciduous tree of substance.  Large leaves on  handsome frame, these are pale underneath providing fluttering highlights during the summer while coloring brilliantly in the fall.  An excellent choice for cold climates as this is good to Zone 3 at least since it is from the Russian Far East down to Hokkaido.

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

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.

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!

Osmanthus x fortunei Osmanthus x fortunei

This evergreen large shrub is a hybrid of O. fragrans x O. heterophyllus and is usefully for screening as it will be very dense. The fall white flowers although small, bunch up in packs, and perfume the air with a scent of jasmine. That should be enough right there but to pile on just a bit, very deer resistant and tolerant of periods of drought. Ok, now that is enough.
