Acer heptaphlebium NV 059 Acer heptaphlebium NV 059

Our collection from northern Vietnam of this very attractive maple species which logic dictates should not be hardy but it has been even in our comparatively harsh environs.  As Spock would say: "Fascinating". Good unabashedly Maple foliage that is a cut above with clusters of salmon-red winged samaras that ably fill the floral void.  Best in part sun as bark can scald in full sun.

Acer pentaphyllum Acer pentaphyllum

This is one of the rarest Maples in wild known only from a very small and threatened population which was recently rediscovered following its introduction to cultivation in the 1930's from a scarce handful of seed.  Narrow leaflets in 5's or 7's on a usually shrubby small tree and best in a milder garden. Parent plant thriving in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood.

Acer sterculiaceum subsp. franchetii H2MD 010 Acer sterculiaceum subsp. franchetii H2MD 010

Our collection from Asia of this fine medium sized tree.  The usually 3-lobed (sometimes 5) leaves are handsome indeed with the new growth often flushed with a light copper overlay.  Excellent at the woodland edge or partly shaded garden sheltered from the worst of the drying sun and wind which plagues us here.

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.

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.

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.

Cornus capitata MD12-829 Cornus 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.

Our selection of an exceptional seedling from a Vietnam collection. Typically green-leafed, this one has lustrous red new growth looking pretty amazing spring through fall and darned good in winter too since it is evergreen. We haven't flowered it yet but expect creamy yellow flowers in summer.  Young plants, cutting propagated.

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.

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

Exbucklandia populnea JSM Exbucklandia populnea JSM

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 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.

Garrya elliptica 'Evie' Garrya elliptica 'Evie'

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.

Litsea japonica Litsea japonica

Small broadleaf evergreen tree from Korea and Japan for mild gardens.  Clustered small yellow flowers snug tight to the stem at the terminal ends of the branches with further display offered by the purple-black fruit.  The leaves have some desert taupe indumentum on the midrib and petioles.

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.

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 globosa CCHH8134 ex China Magnolia globosa CCHH8134 ex China

Close ally to Magnolia sieboldii and M. wilsonii with gorgeous pendant white flowers and larger leaves with yellowish hairs underneath.  Both leaves and flowers are larger than the aforementioned two species. Large shrub to a small tree, quite uncommon in cultivation and hardy in our area.  These are seed-grown young plants from a tree of the original collection

Magnolia insignis DJHV06391 Magnolia insignis DJHV06391

This is a hardy evergreen Magnolia (formerly Michelia) that Hinkley collected in northern Vietnam in 2006.  This has made a fine small tree quickly at Windcliff where it has weathered some bad winters.  This is grown from cuttings from that plant and you can expect nice white flowers in just a few years.

Small plants from a wild collection of this iconic tree found in small, scattered populations from Ohio to Florida.

Meliosma sp. NV 036 Meliosma sp. NV 036

As yet, an unidentified species of this ornamental genus.  This evergreen shrub to small tree possesses interesting ovate-lanceolate leaves with a distinctive acuminate drip tip.  In other words, the leaves are long and narrow but rounding in the middle like some of us do and have a skinny pointy end.  Likely white flowers and black fruit.  A rarity no doubt and all the more so from this wild collection.

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.

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.
