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.

Adenocarpus decorticans Adenocarpus decorticans

Silver Broom.  Uncommon xeric shrub endemic to the Sierra Nevada Mts of Spain.  This member of the Fabaceae family is fab indeed with pale flaking bark, silver-green needle-like leaves and sprays of soft yellow flowers.  Pretty awesome and locally grown to perfection at the Heg and Barca gardens on Whidbey Island.

Agapanthus 'Twister' PP25,519 Agapanthus 'Twister' PP25,519

A cracking bicolored Lily of the Nile out of a breeding program in South Africa where this one seedling out of hundreds exhibited excellent white flowers with a blue base.  These are held in 6"-8" umbels on stems to nearly 4' tall!  Maybe the best thing is that is deciduous and hardy going to zone 7b with a good mulch.

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.

Awesome species endemic to coastal Chile and has excellent foliage coupled with exotic butterfly flowers of varying shades of pink doodled in pencil lines and all surrounding a soft yellow eye.  Bummer it is not hardy but rock on that it is winter dormant and easily overwintered inside.  Quite drought tolerant when dormant.

Aquilegia eximia Aquilegia eximia

Pretty fantastic species which garners lots of buzz when in flower at the Bellevue Botanic Garden.  Intriguingly gorgeous scarlet-ornage flowers lack the cup which has morphed into the most regal crown of glorious spurs.  The rocket plume of downward stamens sre punctuated flight.  Can get 5' tall - oooooooohhhh!

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. DM 16014 Begonia sp. DM 16014

A Hinkley collection of this rhizomatous Begonia from 9500' in the far eastern Himalaya. Attractive foliage with red hues and veins underleaf and we presume, pink flowers. Hardiness is unknown but we would mulch it well in zone 8 gardens. Ideally, overwinter frost-free until large enough to divide off a piece for trial outside in your garden. This would be a trial lamb.

Callicarpa rubella Callicarpa rubella

This Beauty Berry is from the extensive Callicarpa collection at Stephen F. Austin Arboretum in Texas which they graciously shared with us.  Softly hairy leaves somewhat dark tinged and the usual flamboyant display of purplish fruit in late summer and fall.  Good heat tolerant species.

Callistemon sp.  'Red Giant' Callistemon sp. 'Red Giant'

A goody from Ian Barclay, this bottlebrush incorporates the showy attributes of the big, flashy red flowers of the tender species into a big shrub that is pretty darned hardy for a lot of our milder PNW gardens. This handles our short dips to the mid teens and perhaps a little colder with age and careful siting. Give it some room - this gets 10x10' or more. Way cool.

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.

Disporopsis luzoniensis BSWJ 3891 Disporopsis luzoniensis BSWJ 3891

A collection from the mountains of northern Luzon in the Philippines by the folks at Crug Farm.  This has the same evergreen nature as the other species with arching Solomon Seal-esque stems to 16", narrow elliptic leaves, white flowers and purplish fruit.  This is a good grower for mild gardens, rare of course.

Ericameria nauseosa var. nauseosa Ericameria nauseosa var. nauseosa

Rubber Rabbitbush.  Drought tolerant shrub of the arid sagebrush steppe and plains.  So named for the felty leaves and flexible twigs.  This is in the aster family and in late summer and fall will fairly cover itself in small yellow flowers which may not be the best smelling as indicated  by the name but damn its nice!

Eurya aff. leptophylla MWT 14-704 Eurya aff. leptophylla MWT 14-704

A small evergreen shrub in everyone's favorite family, the Pentaphylacaceae.  This was collected in Taiwan by Mark Weathington of the famed Raulston Arboretum and is a rarity in cultivation.  Best suited for mild gardens, this will have very small white flowers along the stems under the leaves followed by small black fruit. Best planted in a raised position to better view the flowers.

Eurya japonica 'Sea Brocade' Eurya japonica 'Sea Brocade'

Luscious variegated selection out of Japan of this small evergreen shrub.  The leaves are heavily frothed and patterned in creamy whites which can take on some pink depending on the season and exposure.  No two leaves are alike on this new wave plant canvas.  Small white flowers under the branches.

Ficus vaccinioides Ficus vaccinioides

Sweet little evergreen groundcover from southern Taiwan where it grows at low to mid elevation in littoral thickets. Then there is the virtual thickets....  Small rounded leaves and yes, there are very small figs but it would take a lot to make figgy pudding. Zone 8 hardy and grows at the Zone 7 Raulston Arboretum in a sheltered spot where it is deciduous in cold winters. Tolerant of shade.

Fuchsia juntasensis Fuchsia juntasensis

This is not a Fuchsia to which one can remain indifferent. A tender species from South America, this is a winter-bloomer with long, thin flowers appearing at leaf fall and then adorning the 3'-5' bare stems. The distinctly softly lavender-pink flowers lack an inner corolla presenting a very pleasing minimalist design aesthetic and the large orange fruit which follow are an unexpectedly discordant delight.

Holboellia aff. chapaensis FMWJ 13171 Holboellia aff. chapaensis FMWJ 13171

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.

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.

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.

Lepisorus bicolor Lepisorus bicolor

Pretty awesome evergreen fern because not only is it cool but it increases fast enough to make a statement in the garden before you are in your dotage and have forgotten why you bought this yet not in that rampaging acreage-eating Borg-assimilating manner that is sometimes described as "a good nursery plant".

Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21 Lepisorus sp. MD 12-21

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  This is an interesting fern of which we have just a few nice divisions.  This grows as an epiphyte on tree trunks which is typical for the genus and was found at the high point in the mountain range so should have some hardiness. The distinctive large rounded paired sori on the backs of the leaves also fit the genus.

Leycesteria crocothyrsos NA 1265 Leycesteria crocothyrsos NA 1265

Yellow Himalayan Honeysuckle.  A species from NE India and northern Myanmar originally introduced by Frank Kingdon-Ward just over 100 years ago, this is from a more recent US National Arboretum collection.  Yellow flowers over bronzed foliage distinguishes this from the more familiar Leycesteria formosa.

Lonicera involucrata var. ledebourii Lonicera involucrata var. ledebourii

Twinberry Honeysuckle.  This the southern variant of our native shrubby Honeysuckle which here in Washington has tubular yellow flowers but down in southern Oregon and California, these flowers are little firecrackers of orangish-red.  Tough plant liking wet sites but quite tolerant of drier spots.  Hummers like this!

Maianthemum laxiflorum ex BSWJ10305 Maianthemum laxiflorum BSWJ 10305

Collected by the Wynn-Jones in Guatemala at higher elevation where it was growing as an epiphyte. Our mama plant is in a container and is one of the showiest Maianthemum or False Solomon Seal we grow. And we grow a lot btw!  Lovely light salmon stems of 24"-30" seem to bow under the weight of the large inflorescence with a galaxy of white stars opening from cream buds.

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.

Ophiopogon sp. aff umbraticola H2MD063 Ophiopogon sp. aff umbraticola H2MD063

A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  Keying Ophiopogon requires a keener taxonomic mind than we possess plus a bottle of sippin' whiskey within easy reach as it is a frustrating endeavor.  This is a little gem forming loose open tussocks of fine bladed grassy green leaves which provides excellent viewing of the comparatively large brilliant blue fruit.

Osmanthus decorus Osmanthus decorus

Tough and adaptable evergreen shrub to 6' or a little more that is thankfully deer resistant.  It is good thing being in the Olive family (Oleaceae) as deer hate olives.  The deer in Port Townsend are approaching biblical locust proportions and no doubt there will soon be "wildlife" tours in town.  Very fragrant white flowers are a beacon of hope in the face of relentless herbivory.

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.
