Fagus aff. longipetiolata (new)

From Huaping, Guangxi, China, this appears to be this species. One of the finest and most attractive of all beech due to its ovate, fairly taper pointed foliage, though very rarely encountered in cultivation, forming only a medium sized tree in the UK. The leaves turn to very similar shades of russet and gold in autumn. The bark is a classic smooth cold grey.

Fagus grandifolia subsp. mexicana (new)

Extremely rare in cultivation, yet fully hardy, these plants of the Mexican Beech are propagated from a tree growing in Holland. Not only rare in cultivation, this is very rare in the wild state also, with only ten small populations known in the mountains of E Mexico. A large tree in the wild, the leathery leaves are attractive with a dentate margin and drawn out tip.

Fagus longipetiolata

Virtually unknown in Western cultivation, this Chinese species is one of the most attractive beeches judging by plants I've seen in Guizhou, with ovate fairly taper-pointed leaves in comparison to our native. The leaves turn to very similar shades of russet and gold in autumn. The bark is a similar smooth cold grey. Expect a smaller, medium sized tree here.

Ficus johannis subsp. afghanistanica 'Silver Lyre'

A recent selection from Oregon of this very unusual hardy deciduous fig from the Near East. The heavily dissected silver-green foliage is particularly handsome and the small dark fruit are sweet and commonly consumed (in Iran at least). This should make a large shrub or small tree in cultivation, very drought tolerant and probably best with some heat from a wall.

Firmiana simplex

'Chinese Parasol Tree'. Thought to be tender, this fabulously tropical looking tree has grown outside at Kew for years, and in my garden it's BONE hardy - even thru Dec' 2010! Makes a medium sized deciduous tree with outsized maple-like leaves on very stout, green shoots: the bark staying green to the ground for years. Likes warmth in summer.

Fuchsia hatschbachii

Not only one of the hardiest of all Fuchsias, but one that has such a great name, that will no doubt inspire many a really poor joke about family cars. A very vigorous bushy species that can grow to 2m in one season after a hard prune, bearing willow-like foliage. Elegant, slim, 'fuchsia coloured' (funnily enough) flowers appear continuously in summer and autumn.

A very unusual and newly available Fuchsia from the highlands of temperate SE Brazil. Splendid silvered foliage with red veins and petioles is rather different and attractive. The flowers are rather classic in being red-pink with purple innards. This is a potentially large plant that can climb up through other shrubs in a scandent way. Root hardy to below minus 10c.
