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.

Alniphyllum sp. NV 034 Alniphyllum sp. NV 034

Rarely offered seed-grown collection of this Asian tree in the Styrax family. This family which includes many genera of great ornamental merit and botanical interest and this genus nicely incorporates both characteristics. Seldom seen in cultivation which always lights up the geek radar and clusters of small white flowers sometimes tinged pink in bud.

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.

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.

Cornus alternifolia 'Argentea' Cornus alternifolia 'Argentea'

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.

Cornus capitata MD12-829 Cornus hongkongensis (as capitata) MD12-829

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.

Cornus mas 'Variegata' Cornus mas 'Variegata'

One of our most favored small trees is this princeling of a cornel.  Late winter flowers of yellow filamentous buttons followed by perfectly clean white variegation in the leaves and are further accented when the flowers turn into edible reddish fruits in late summer.

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.

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.

Hesperocyparis pygmaea (syn. Cupressus) Hesperocyparis pygmaea (syn. Cupressus)

California native conifer from seed collected from the Pygmy Forest in Humboldt County. This unique population is naturally dwarfed from growing on nutrient deficient podosol soil with a high aluminum content that overlays a high iron hardpan. This will grow normally for you becoming a lovely drought tolerant tree.

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 "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.

Magnolia cathcartii NV 065 Magnolia cathcartii/floribunda cf. NV 065

And then there is whether you accept Michelia or Magnolia.  Young plants from a collection at 2200 meters and the species ID was a best-guess from the field.  Evergreen leaves on what were young second-growth trees as all mature specimens had been logged in this area.  Should have white flowers.  Just a few and would not expect a lot of hardiness.

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.

Magnolia macrophylla - Winston Co., AL Magnolia macrophylla - Winston Co., AL

Seed-grown from a wild collection in Winston County Alabama of this unrivaled North American tree..  This has the largest simple leaves of any native plant - up to 30" long - and let's add the flowers as well which are 8"-10' wide and rarely to 12".  These fragrant soup bowls are white with rose-purplish bases and followed by showy big cone-like fruits from which red seeds hang by threads.  Seriously.  Rich moist soil sheltered from wind.

Meliosma veitchiorum H2MD115 Meliosma veitchiorum H2MD115

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  Impressive tree that left us gobsmacked when we saw this solitary and statuesque 50' tree in the wild.  Broadly columnar with well-spaced branches forming a stout framework for the pinnate leaves.  Big plumes of small white flowers segue to marble-sized black fruit and then it just piles it on with orange fall color.  Extremely rare plant of which we have just a few.

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.

Phyllocladus alpinus Phyllocladus alpinus

Mountain Toatoa.  Middle-earth mind-bender of a conifer in the Podocarpaceae from the mountains of New Zealand.  At first glance and even after a period of unhurried contemplation, this defies easy categorization.  Small flattened phylloclades take up the photosynthetic reins from the vestigial leaves and the narrow pyramidal shrub has no comparatives in the garden.  Sl-o-o-o-w growing, these are small plants with a steady return on investment.

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!

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.

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.

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.
