The Plants Are In The Mail! Pt. II

The second nursery I ordered from carries several hard-to-find replacements.

Broussonetia papyrifera, or Paper Mulberry, is a deciduous tree native to China and Japan and its bark is used to make "Tapa" cloth. The cultivar I am getting, 'Golden Shadow', is more a shrub than tree - reaching around 10' at maturity. The golden foliage is exquisite and it is quick to establish, long-lived and can take full sun! My plant inexplicably died last year before the move.

Fijian Tapa Cloth, handmade by the steeping & pounding of the inner bark of Mulberry tree.

Found from the Himalayas through China to Japan and southward to the mountains of Indonesia, Dichroa febrifuga is another winter-flowering species, similar to hydrangea, but evergreen. A plant for mild-temperate gardens, I am determined to keep one alive!

Chimonanthus praecox is a shrub we left behind (it never did very well). From the allspice family, they are grown for their ornamental value; their scented flowers can be used dried, like lavender, to fragrance linen. Fragrant flowers of sulfur yellow with a purple stained-throat appear on second year bare wood in winter on stems to 12’. I am replacing it with C. zhejiangensis, an evergreen wintersweet and hope to have better luck with this species.


I had Fuchsia encliandra 'Isis' as well as the species for a companion plant; I've been unable to find a replacement for the species. Here is the description of both plants from Heronswood, where I originally bought them in 2003.
“For those who have grown the endearing Fuchsia ‘Isis’, with minute, ever-appearing, glistening flowers of hot coral red, then F. encliandra could easier be described as its pure white counterpart. A dense mound of deep green finely textured leaves to 3’ will provide twelve months of glistening tiny white flowers followed by rounded black fruit, best in light shade with some overstory protection. Interestingly, the species name means “enclosed male”, alluding to the fact that each flower, when dissected, reveals four additional stamens that do not protrude beyond the floral tube”.

This unusual plant, Fabiana imbricata ‘Violacea’, is a member of the potato family from the Chilean Andes. I had mine for 5 years before it got waterlogged and then frozen in the pot while waiting to be planted :-( It has dense, scaly gray-silver foliage on upright branches, with soft purple-lavender tubular flowers in summer. It requires well-drained sites in full sun and is supposed to reach 8’ (I just don't believe it, mine never topped 2'). Click on the plant for a close-up of the blossoms, they are really something!

zorkie and fay were just talking about jasmines today. I love their sweet scent and delicate blossoms; I have to be careful to get only the hardier plants. This one, Jasminum humile f. wallichianum AKA Italian jasmine, is a rare, semi-deciduous species to 6' with bright yellow fragrant flowers blooming throughout the summer followed by shining black fruit. It proved quite hardy until it was uprooted.

Paulownias have been cultivated in China for more than 3,000 years, both for their strong light timber, and for their attractive flowers; the bark, wood, leaves, flowers and fruit all have medicinal uses. , Paulownia kawakamii is the species I had; this is one of the fastest growing trees on the planet. I think my original plant was a poor one as its growth was anything but fast.
Take a look at this to get an idea of the astounding growth rate! The felty leaves of this Empress tree feel like rabbit ears.

I originally purchased the Japanese Fragrant Snowbell, or Styrax obassia as a mature tree and it had loads of heavenly scented blossoms. Unfortunately, I planted it under some outstretched fir branches and it died after 2 years. This one is just a gallon plant but I'll enjoy watching it grow :-)

It's like Christmas, I can't wait!

Make sure bare-root plants do not waterlines out if climate conditions are not constructive for planting. Remove packaging and cheap custom essay position roots in a container of tacky fertilizer to avoid drought.
