A very nice surprise!

Thanks to the generosity of Tim & Matt Nichols of MrMaple.com We have two very cool new plants for the Plantmad Garden & Collection.

Both members of one of my favorite plant families the Hamamelidaceae. One is a new dwarf cultivar of Disanthus cercidifolius called 'Rikyu'. The other is even more obscure, Rhodoleia henryi 'Takeshitea' an unusual evergreen Genus of Hamamelidaceae from China. The exciting part is that unlike some of the other Rhodoleia species this one may well be Zone 6 or 7 hardy. Time will tell but not until we have made a few backups :)
