Adinandra glischroloma var. glischroloma CDHM14694 Adinandra glischroloma var. glischroloma CDHM14694

This is likely the first introduction of this curious Tea family member from our collection in Guangxi Province. An evergreen shrub to 10' in the wild with long slightly drooping olive-green leaves prominently hirsute especially along the margins. Flowers are small and white and give way to small black fruit. We are thinking hardy to zone 8.

Aeschynanthus buxifolius Aeschynanthus buxifolius

A Vietnam species which has been hardy to 15F.  Great container plant with tubular red flowers which can easily be moved inside for the winter where it can serve as a houseplant  until it is time to go back outside.  Or keep it outside until there is danger of frost and then hustle it in and bring it back out when safe.

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.

Begonia sp. - Vietnam Begonia sp. - Vietnam

Shayne Chandler's collection from Vietnam of this assuredly tender but most enchanting Begonia.  Long stems gloriously hirsute in red hairs hold broadly rounded palmate leaves  whose upper surface is studded with carefully spaced green hairs and the underside veins bristle darkly.  The pendulous white are small but wow with calyces bearded thickly in Viking red.

Begonia sp. OJ10-VN140 Begonia sp. aff. villifolia OJ10-VN140

Staggeringly good foliage Begonia collected by Ozzie Johnson at Bai Dat Sun in northern Vietnam.  Large tan-green leaves with later than 5 o'clock shadow of red hairs.  Pink flowers play peekaboo in the foliage.  A species not fully trialed for hardiness but we are speculating zone 8b or a little less with judicious applications of mulch for winter freezing.

Berberis malipoensis / hypoxantha FMWJ 13290 Berberis malipoensis / hypoxantha FMWJ 13290

FMWJ13290.  Collected at Lao Cai, Phansi Pan, Vietnam 2930 meters.  Quite a new plant to cultivation and early indications are is that it will have quite handsome foliage.  Many plants from this area are proving to have surprising hardiness in the PNW so we have hopes this will be the case with this Berberis.

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.

Clethra petelotii FMWJ 13405 Clethra petelotii FMWJ 13405

Collected in northern Vietnam at Lao Cai, Y Ty at 2340 meters. This, like most Clethra, will make a nice deciduous shrub that is open in habit when young and like a small tree when mature. Scented mid to late summer white flowers that individually are larger than usual for Clethra. This has done well in a colder garden in Sequim and certainly good in Zone 8 if not colder. This has become a favorite here at the nursery.

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.

One of the few Eupatorium or Joe Pye Weed species that has not been put
into a new genus, this has narrow toothed leaves edged in cream and
white.  The three foot stems are topped by pollinator-friendly pink
flowers in September. Best in a moist situation.  This species is used
in China to make fragrant oils as the whole plant is fragrant when
crushed much like Lavandula.angustifolia.

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.

A 2011 collection by Floden-Mitchell-Wynn-Jones from 1700 m at Lao Cai, Dragon's Tooth, Vietnam as aff. tengchongense and offered by us as such but upon flowering for Floden, proved to be spicatum which Wynn-Jones disputes.  Plant Fight!  H. spicatum from other areas has proved quite hardy for us,  White and salmon flowers.

Hedychium villosum var. tenuifolium KWJ12305 Hedychium villosum var. tenuiflorum KWJ12305

Small winter-flowering species collected by Kettle and Wynn-Jones on Mt Fansipan in northern Vietnam. This is nice little ginger given varietal status due to its larger flowers and much larger sagittate anthers. Sagittate anther envy - it happens even in the plant world. Stems to 28" with very nice spidery white lightly scented flowers

New introduction from Lao Cai, Phansi Pu, Vietnam at 2100 meters.  Little is known about this climbing species in regards to how it does in the garden.  This a vigorus and interesting evergreen vine with scented flowers and large almost sausage-like fruit which make a nice trail snack if the locals haven't scarfed them up.

Hydrangea kwangsiensis FMWJ 13187 Hydrangea kwangsiensis FMWJ 13187

Species recently introduced from Vietnam and hardiness not known but warmer zone 8 and above is safe.  Well worth taking a chance on as the lacecap flowers have that little sumpin' sumpin' that made this the staff favorite here.  White sterile flowers surround fertile florets of pink to indigo depending on pH and clonal differences.

Hypericum uralum FMWJ 13307 Hypericum uralum FMWJ 13307

An ornamental shrub from northern Vietnam from the Floden-Mitchell-Wynn-Jones collection in 2011 to which we were privy to a large share of the seed spoils.  We've put a lot into Karma and we've a good balance going.  From an area where plants are hardy for us, this will have classic St  John's Wort yellow flowers.

Illicium merrillianum HWJ 1015 Illicium merrillianum HWJ1015

Hinkley collection of this ornamental Asian relative of the Star Anise.  A fine evergreen shrub which will thrive in the milder gardens such as the sheltered woodland at Heronswood or the more benign gardens that rim Puget Sound as well as those benefiting from the urban heat sink of Seattle.  Vivid pink flowers in late spring. Zone 8b.

Kadsura heteroclita FMWJ 13385 Kadsura heteroclita FMWJ 13385

These are big plants from seed collected near the Chinese border in
Vietnam at 2500 meters.  This has scented, long-stemmed creamy flowers with up to 25
tepals to 2.5 cm long.  We're paraphrasing Bleddyn Wynn-Jones
description which is getting it straight from the source as he led the
team.  This is likely not going to appreciate prolonged cold or exposure
to freezing winds but in a sheltered spot, is going to be pretty darned
cool.

Lysionotus petelotii Lysionotus petelotii

An epiphytic gesneriad (African Violet family) from a Josh McCullough collection in Vietnam.  This is a pretty cool and indeed, prefers cool partly shaded conditions.  Not hardy, it might be able to cope with a very light frost but best moved inside for the winter or at least for frosty periods.  Big tubular whitish flowers washed in pinks.

Magnolia cathcartii NV 065 Magnolia cathcartii/floribunda aff. 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 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.

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.

Polygonatum vietnamicum Polygonatum vietnamicum

Staggeringly impressive recent introduction of this Solomon Seal species from - wait for it -  Vietnam.  This is similar to our favorite Polygonatum huanum (formerly as kingianum) but is just more of everything that is good.  Large red flowers snug the whorled leaves on stems which this year in the garden reached 15' tall and which remain green for us until temps drop below 20F.

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.
