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.

Polylepis lanata BK 10511.10 Polylepis lanata BK 10511.10

High elevation Bolivian evergreen pinnate-leaved tree in the Rose family whose gorgeous irregular shape and exceptional exfoliating bark gives us fever dreams. Flowers are apetalous nothings but given its abundance of attributes, expecting showy petals is akin to disappointment in the physical shortcomings of the Duke in The Bridgertons.

Cornus cf. capitata YuGu 050 Cornus cf. capitata YuGu 050

From the Yunnan-Vietnam borderlands, this small-leafed evergreen dogwood makes an attractive tree.  Flowers not seen but if anything like the red fruit when ripe, then boom-shaka-laka!  Even if the flowers are not as hoped, what a gift to focus on its many attributes and the modern plague of unrealistic expectation. Gallon pots.

Snowbell. Superb small tree from an area not botanized by westerners. This will have showy panicles of white flowers in late spring - early summer and is notable for having slightly bronzy new growth which adds to the allure. It has done superbly in full exposure here for several years - mute testament to its tolerance of adversity!

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.

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.

'James Roof' is a man among boys when you are talking West Coast Silktassels. This male cultivar is gloriously well-hung with flowering catkins that dangle nearly a foot in length resulting in catkin-envy among other Garrya cultivars and the occasional insecure gardener.  Or so we are told. Tough evergreen doing it's thing in early spring.

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.

Very choice dwarf Birch which Sue brought with her from Vermont.  This is native to eastern Canada and we've stumped every hort illuminati as to species and all but one or two as to genus.  It looks like some crazy dwarf Ceonothus with dense stems and closely held leaves.  Rare?  I guess!
