Macleania insignis BLM 0628 Macleania insignis BLM 0628

This Central American epiphytic blueberry relative calls the cloud forests home and enjoys cool conditions with no frost.  Brilliant red new growth, tubular soft red flowers with red calyces followed by darkly intriguing fruit.  Will develop a caudiform lignotuber in time.  This is a visual feast and a balm to a mind jaded by the cartel commodification of plants.  Which is ironic considering the vast greenhouse plant factories in Central and South America owned by multinationals which produce mainstream young plants or cuttings for sale in the US.

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.

Mahonia oiwakensis subsp. lomariifolia var. tenuifoliola Mahonia oiwakensis subsp. lomariifolia var. tenuifoliola

Certainly one of the best names for a Mahonia and one which if mastered, will set you apart from you gardening peers.  Here's a tip - it’s the foliola at the end that always derails folks including us.  These are seedlings from an unintentional mixing of a Hinkley collection and a Peter Cox Cangshan collection - no matter as both are very elegant.

Our mama plant is in a container and is one of the showiest Maianthemum or False Solomon Seal we grow.

Maianthemum oleraceum - white Maianthemum oleraceum - white

One of the finest False Solomon Seal's around and rarely obtainable.

Pretty cool False Solomon's Seal whose terminal display of small, narrow-tubed yellowish to green flowers carries more interest than might be implied.  Any thought that this is being relegated to the flames of Hell by what could be construed as faint praise will be quickly dispelled upon learning of the excellent fragrance.  Sometimes seen as the incorrect species ginfushanica.
