Zanthoxylum armatum NJM 11.080 (new)

Found growing at the woodland edge in Central Guizhou, SW China this species of 'Sichuan pepper' formed shrubs to 2m tall with rather striking, comparatively large, heavily armed, shiny pinnate leaves. Red fruit clusters open to reveal shiny black seeds. Try this in a sheltered site, perhaps with wall protection, perhaps not. It's probably perfectly hardy.

Zanthoxylum piperitum - purple leaved

Zanthoxylum piperitum - purple leaved

Most desired amongst those who've seen it, this is the extremely rare rich purple leaved form of the Japan pepper. A culinary shrub in that country, with highly aromatic and ornamental diminutive pinnate foliage on a medium sized hardy, spiny stemmed and spiny leaved deciduous shrub. Difficult to propagate and unavailable elsewhere.

Zanthoxylum piperitum var. inerme (new)

The Japan Pepper is an obscure medium sized deciduous shrub closely related to Sichuan pepper. Used by the Japanese for culinary purposes, this form has far less in the way of spines. The pinnate leaves are very pretty with small leaflets. I love the wonderful fragrance emitted when brushed past or fondled and the red fruit clusters are attractive.

Zanthoxylum simulans

Zanthoxylum simulans

'Sichuan Pepper'. A hardy deciduous spreading shrub to small tree, armed to the hilt with spines, even on the very aromatic, graceful leaves. Crush them (without impaling yourself) to release a heady fragrance. Small bunches of little reddish fruit in autumn have edible seed cases, much used in Asia as a very distinct spice. Great in stir-fries.

Zelkova carpinifolia Multi-limbed form

One of the most distinctive and magnificent of all hardy deciduous trees. Rarely planted, this, the most commonly grown form in cultivation for over two centuries, has a most characteristic growth form. Bark is smooth pale-grey and the short trunk soon breaks into a multitude of upright stems forming sinuous shapes with maturity. Elm-like leaves turn to gold and russet.

Zelkova carpinifolia NJM 13.014 (new)

A Tertiary relic, surviving in the Caspian and Caucasian forests. Seed for these was found in southern Azerbaijan, where the species grows rather like a Fagus, very different from the clone long cultivated in the UK. Bark is mainly smooth pale-grey, and the elm-like leaves turn to gold and russet shades in autumn. A long lived large hardy tree for most positions.
