A Snowbell or a Silverbell.


We picked up this interesting Styrax from Sue & Kelly at Far Reaches Farm last year. Collected by them in Guizhou China 2010. To me the foliage more closely resembles a Halesia but apparently the flowers keyed out to Styrax japonicus.


Schima argentea


Yesterday's surprise was finding a few flowers on our still quite small Schima argentea.

Full Up (Round One!)


Posts to this blog & our Facebook page through the Summer months are few & far between. That's because when we are not slaving away on the nursery we are our hiking & climbing in the Oregon Cascades! I took a few moments though to post this photo of our now full mist house. We are not done though, now we take rooted material out & carry on sticking more!
