Pterostyrax psilophyllus var. leveillei CGG 14114 Pterostyrax psilophyllus f. leveilleana 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.

Glyptostrobus pensilis Glyptostrobus pensilis

Chinese Bald Cypress. Another one of those monotypic genera we love! This deciduous conifer is the only species in the genus and highly threatened by habitat loss in the wild. This will get to be a big tree which your yet unborn child's children can sit under. In their boat. Fairly slow - ours is in our bog garden pond.

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.

Acacia pravissima Acacia pravissima

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.

Luma apiculata "hardy form" Luma apiculata - Hardy Form - Nursery Pick Up Only

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.

Embothrium coccineum Embothrium coccineum

Trochodendron aralioides Trochodendron aralioides

One of the classic broad leaf evergreen small trees, this grows quite slowly and will fill the evergreen shrub niche for many years.  This has small apetalous (that would be no petals so you can guess at the wow factor) chartreuse flowers in spring.  Just a great Asian plant requiring decent moist soil.

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.

Heptapleurum (syn.Schefflera) fengii YuGu 029 Heptapleurum (syn.Schefflera) fengii YuGu 029

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.

Maytenus chubutensis, Maytenus magellanica Maytenus magellanica

Quite the uncommon small evergreen tree to large shrub that has tiny little red flowers cladding the stems which individually are a bit of nothing but in their multitudes are really kind of fun.  Native to Argentina through Chile down into windy Patagonia, this has not been trialed much here but is growing at the Arboretum in Seattle.  Zone 8.

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.

California native conifer from seed collected from the Pygmy Forest in Humboldt County.

Pinus sabiniana Pinus sabiniana - Nursery Pick Up Only

Gray Pine or California Foothills Pine.  What are the chances that you might be interested in a drought tolerant, deer-proof tree?  Pretty damned good if you live in Port Townsend with its Mediterranean climate and way too many bold as brass deer.  Gray-green needles on a tree 30'-40' tall which can get taller but not in your lifetime.

Our selection of an exceptional seedling from a Vietnam collection.

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.
