  3. SYMPHORICARPOS ALBUS

    During early summer, the clusters of green-white to pink flowers start to bloom amongst the attractive blue-green leaves, followed by clusters of white, conspicuous, round fruits, 1-2cm in diameter, which persist into the autumn.

Ingesting the berries causes mild symptoms of vomiting, dizziness, and slight sedation in children. ... Learn More

    SYRINGA WOLFII

    One of the most very beautiful of all of the twenty species of lilac, this variety bears arching panicles of scented, lilac-mauve flowers in early to mid summer which are particularly large, broad, multi-stemmed and very strongly fragrant.

The individual flowers are horn-shaped, with four petals, each one attractively pointed. It blooms about two week after the common lilac (S. vulgaris), two species coming from Europe, the remainder mainly from eastern Asia where it grows naturally in Manchuria, Korea and the Russian Far East in the rocky mountain shrub layer, often in forests and river valleys.

    XANTHOCERAS SORBIFOLIUM

    A magnificent, rare, choice, amazing, and extremely beautiful tree with gorgeous upright panicles of large white flowers with a dazzling deep red centre in late spring. Although it is completely unrelated, the attractive shiny leaves are similar in appearance to those of the common Mountain Ash.

It was described by Joseph Hooker (Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew from 1865-1885) in 1887 as 'one of the most attractive and interesting hardy garden shrubs that has been introduced for many years'. It is native to northern China in the provinces of Gansu, Hebei, Henan, Liaoning, Nei Monggol, Ningxia, Shaanxi, and was originally collected near Beijing in about 1830 by the botanist Alexander von Bunge.
