  1. MAGNOLIA SOULANGEANA

    Large, fragrant, tulip-like, white flowers faintly flushed with pink, open from earliest spring to early summer. These open on the bare branches before the first leaves appear, giving a glorious candelabra effect. One of the easiest and quickest-growing of this gorgeous group of flowering trees. ... Learn More

  2. MAGNOLIA WILSONII

    This breathtakingly beautiful species bears nodding blooms which open as pure white cups with rosy-purple or crimson stamens, later opening fully like bone-china saucers. Introduced from China nearly a century ago, it is also fortunately lime-tolerant. ... Learn More

  3. MALUS PUMILA (WILD APPLE)

    One of the most common fruits in temperate climates. The wild apple has been collected for thousands of years and later bred in many different lines each with their own desired characteristics. ... Learn More

  4. MANILKARA ZAPOTA

    Prized for its fruit which is considered one of the best in Central America, the ripe, soft brown flesh has an exceptionally sweet, malty flavour, rather like brown sugar, and the pale yellow to orange flesh has a soft, grainy texture just like that of a well-ripened pear. With a strong resemblance to the Kiwi Fruit, it can be eaten raw or made into jam, custard, ice cream and sherbet. It makes a stout tropical and subtropical tree with ornamental, green, glossy leaves with clusters of waxy white flowers. The large seeds are black and resemble beans. This incredible tree yields fruit twice a year, though flowering may continue year round, and it is also the source of chicle, the main constituent of chewing gum. Compounds extracted from the leaves have been shown to produce anti-diabetic, antioxidant and hypocholesterolemic (cholesterol-lowering) effects. ... Learn More

  5. MATTHIOLA ARBORESCENS ALBA

    Unlike the common garden stocks, the white form of the fragrant tree stock is rarely encountered. Slowly, with age, it develops a trunk supporting several radiating rosettes of grey lanceolate leaves, each rosette producing spikes of sweetly perfumed white flowers. It is hardy and long lived in a sheltered well-drained spot. ... Learn More

  6. MELIANTHUS VILLOSUS

    Curious maroon-brown flowers, with chocolate bracts and green stamens, produce unusual inflated fruits above attractive, musky-perfumed deeply-fingered foliage on this very rare plant. In addition, this South African native provides many odd details in its life cycle. Compared with the more well known and widely available Melianthus major, this seldom-seen beauty is more reasonably sized for the smaller garden, and has lovely fuzzy apple green leaves as opposed to the glaucous grey-green of the major. The nectar-filled flowers are intricately veined bizarre beauties of green, brown, and deep purple, which are followed by large cubical green seed pods that are puffed up, and pop like a balloon when pressed. The black nectar bulges out of the mouth of the flower, spilling out as the lower flowers on the spikes slowly rotate from right side up to upside down over the course of a day. Melianthus are apparently the only genus in the plant world that have this mysterious rotation, which would make a perfect subject for time lapse photography. ... Learn More

  7. MELICYTUS OBOVATUS

    "New Zealand Shrubby Violet". Yes, a member of the violet family! A dwarf evergreen shrub, with small oval leaves, resembling a box bush. Tiny clusters of perfumed yellow-green flowers slowly turn to white and purple berries. A slow growing treasure. ... Learn More

  8. MOLTKIA PETRAEA

    An exceptionally choice and rare dwarf plant with pink buds opening to deepest violet-blue flowers. Stems bear oblong-lance-shaped, linear leaves which are dark blue-green above and white beneath. One of the best-ever alpine house and show plants, this fabulous miniature semi-evergreen sub-shrub originates from the mountains of Yugoslavia, Albania and Greece. ... Learn More

  9. MORINGA PTERYGOSPERMA

    This fast-growing, drought-resistant tree, native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas in north western India is widely cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Hanging clusters of fragrant, orchid-like flowers later become hanging fruits which are three-sided brown capsules holding dark brown, globular seeds which have three whitish, papery wings and are dispersed by wind and water and are sometimes eaten like peas or roasted like nuts. The whitish-grey bark is surrounded by thick cork, and in cultivation the trunk is often cut back annually to 1–2 meters and allowed to regrow, and the pods and leaves thus remain within arm's reach. ...

  10. MULBERRY

    Mulberries never really arrived commercially as a fruit, because they are just too delicate to travel when ripe. In Summer the fruits mature to a purplish-red, when they should be picked and eaten soon afterwards and treat them with care as they crumble easily. The fruit colour is derived from health-giving anthocyanins, and their flavour truly is sublime, as they are packed with lots of sweet juice. In addition this really is a truly beautiful ornamental tree, in spring and summer the foliage positively glows, whilst in the autumn and winter the stark, gnarled framework of branches looks absolutely stunning. ...

  11. MYRCIARIA CAULIFLORA

    Purple fruit, 3–4 cm in diameter, with one to four large seeds, have white, sweet, juicy pulp, closely resembling grapes, and with a similar flavour, which can be eaten raw or be used to make jellies and drinks (plain juice or wine). They are borne directly on the main trunks and branches of the tree, giving a distinctive and very odd-looking appearance. They do well in tropical and subtropical climates, but will survive temperatures as low as 22-27F, even when young. They make attractive conservatory plants if grown in a large pot. They are native to the Minas Gerais region of Brazil, spreading into Bolivia, Paraguay, and Northern Argentina. ... Learn More

  12. OEMLERIA CERASIFORMIS

    Amongst the first plants of the year to flower this rarely encountered shrub has fragrant flowers, which are whitish-green, bell-shaped, and appear in late winter before the leaves, very much like the sloe in the UK. The fruit occurs in ovoid drupes borne on bright red stems, and is orange or yellow when young, but a delicately powdered blue-black when mature. In the wild they are native to the Pacific coast and ranges of North America, from British Columbia, Canada to Santa Barbara County, California, U.S.A. It is dioecious, having male and female flowers which occur on different plants ... Learn More

  13. PARAHEBE LYALLII

    From New Zealand South Island, comes this truly exquisite semi-evergreen, prostrate, perennial shrub with rounded, toothed, dark green leaves, bearing dense racemes of white to pale-pink, purple-veined flowers with red centres, which open in early summer for a long period. ... Learn More

  14. PAULOWNIA TOMENTOSA

    This truly spectacular tree produces large, pale mauve "foxglove" flowers on naked branches in early spring, the large, dinner-plate-sized, soft furry leaves appearing later. If cut to the ground in spring, enormous leaves develop on the shoots sprouting from the soil. It does especially well in poor, impoverished and quite dry soil! ... Learn More

  15. PECAN

    These nuts have a distinctive rich, buttery flavor and are probably the most nutritious of all nuts, and indeed are second in popularity only to the pea-nut! Trees live and produce nuts for hundreds of years in a favourably temperate climate, the deciduous trees putting out fresh growth in the spring. Closely related to walnuts, the leaves of the two trees look very similar. This hickory tree, native to Central and Southern North America, has been used as a food source by Native Americans for centuries before the arrival of European colonists. Growth rate of this fast-growing can be up to 1meter or 3 feet per year. This tree is perfect for home owners that love to harvest nuts for cooking. The plants were not actually domesticated until the 17th century, when the first plantations of pecans were established in Mexico. Hardy planting zones are 5-9. ... Learn More
