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.

A seedling from a cross between two fine Mahonia species done at the Bloedel Reserve and given to us by their Director of Horticulture, Andy Navage.  While we would love to grow these on and evaluate the differences, this would take time, space, money and well, we could go on but would rather deputize you to grow this on and report back.

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. These are spirit-breakingly slow to grow from seed and the time required to grow plants to flowering size which these should be calls into question our business acumen. However, these are of such perfection when mature with stout 24"-30" stems arching gracefully and each bearing a terminal plume of flashy white flowers.
