Rare & Unusual Plants

Truly rare and unusual plant selections that are sure to be a conversation piece. This category includes Almost Eden exclusive introductions.
 

Elegantly arching, 4-8" long spikes of 1" wide, bell-shaped, fragrant white flowers with contrasting yellow anthers are produced in spring to early summer with the warmest regions flowering earliest. The Fragrant Snowbell, Styrax obassia or S. obassis, is a highly desirable, showy small tree that is initially pyramidal in form but broadens and becomes rounded with age. The large papery, rounded to oval to near heart-shaped foliage can reach 8" long and the beautiful foliage alone makes this plant worth growing. From the moist forests of Japan and Korea, the Fragrant Snowbell will benefit from protection from strong drying winds as well as a moist to average moist, loamy, well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter and an organic mulch over the root zone. Full sun to part shade tolerant but it may benefit from afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Item# 12607

Outdoor Light: Full sun, Mostly sunny, Part shade

Franklinia, Franklin Tree

Franklinia alatamaha

Fragrant 3" wide white flowers with a boss of bright egg-yolk yellow stamens are produced beginning in midsummer and may continue until first frost under good conditions. The rare and highly sought after Franklinia or Franklin Tree, Franklinia alatamaha, is now extinct in the wilds of Georgia where it was initially discovered growing in the Altamaha River Valley. This is a small, rounded, deciduous, single trunked tree to multi-trunked large shrub in the Camellia or Tea family, Theaceae. It can be notoriously difficult to establish and requires excellent conditions in an acidic, loamy soil rich in organic matter with average moist to moist conditions and is not tolerant of drought. An organic mulch over the root zone will be beneficial to the tree's health, establishment, and longevity. Afternoon shade is beneficial, especially in hot summer climates. Item# 12603

Clusters of Viburnum-like creamy white flowers to 4" across are produced in spring and are followed by black fruit but one of the most attractive features of this unusual Dogwood is its peeling white, gray, to green bark and its neatly rounded crown. The Ghost Dogwood or Wilson's Dogwood, Cornus wilsoniniana, was discovered and introduced to western horticulture by the famed plantsman E.H. Wilson, but is unfortunately still rare in the US. The light green evergreen to deciduos foliage is glossy on its surface and has a whitish reverse and is reminiscent of the Kousa Dogwood. It gets its common name from its white bark and the specific epithet is in honor of E.H. Wilson. It is considered to be a choice, single to multi-trunked, small to medium-sized street tree growing to 15-50'H, occassionally exceeding 100'H, and prefers a well-drained, average moist acidic soil. The Ghost Dogwood is tolerant of full sun to part shade and has excellent resistance to Dogwood anthracnose and powdery mildew. Item# 12244

The fine dark green linear foliage is tipped with a slightly larger rounded pad and adorns fine trailing to twining stems. The Grass-Leaved Hoya, Hoya retusa, produces white waxy flowers that are centered by a nicely contrasting deep burgundy 'eye' in spring and on and off during the growing season on mature plants. The flowers are born singly and in small clusters. This unusual Hoya hails from India and its fine stems lend it to use as a hanging basket specimen, allow it to spill from containers like the 'head' pots as wild looking hair, and it can be used as a groundcover below larger plants that require similar conditions as long as there is ample bright light to keep it growing and healthy. Like most Hoyas, allow the soil to become semi-dry between waterings although this species can tolerate a little more moisture than most. Item# 12294

Hanging clusters of buttery yellow fragrant flowers that are centered by a purple to burgundy star-shaped corona are produced during the warmer months of the year. Hoya cumingiana, or Paluki in its native Phillipines, is somewhat of a sprawling shrub-like Hoya with closely stacked small rounded glossy medium green foliage that may be at its best when trained to a support like a small trellis. Its foliage is nice enough that it could be grown for its architectural form with the flowers simply as a bonus. This is considered to be one of the easier to grow shrub-like Hoyas that mainly needs to be allowed to dry out somewhat between waterings. The fragrant flowers are likely to draw butterflies and other pollinators. Its ease of growth, unusual looking foliage, and fragrant flowers make this Hoya one of the more sought after species.

Mountain Gordlinia

x Gordlinia grandiflora

The large, up to 5" wide, white, flattened to cupped, sweetly fragrant flowers are centered by a boss of nicely contrasting egg-yolk yellow stamens with flowering beginning in early to midsummer and continuing until late summer. A cross-generic hybrid of the native Franklinia and Gordinia, the Mountain Gordlinia, x Gordlinia grandiflora, is a semi-evergreen small tree to multi-trunked large shrub with red to orange fall color that continues through winter on any retained foliage. It is a little more vigorous and is considered to be slightly easier to grow than its parents but still needs a quality loamy soil, rich in organic matter with consistent moisture and an organic mulch over the root zone. Provide afternoon shade, especially in hot summer climates. Still new to horticulture, the Mountain Gordlinia is the result of hybridization work by Tom Ranney and Paul Fantz in 2003 aiming for a more disease resistant, longer lived, and more reliable garden plant with all the great qualities of the parent species. You can read the scientific article about their work at the following link on the NCSU extension website: https://mcilab.ces.ncsu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/ranney-and-fantz-2006.pdf?fwd=no.

Elegantly arching, 4-8" long spikes of 1" wide, bell-shaped, fragrant white flowers with contrasting yellow anthers are produced in spring to early summer with the warmest regions flowering earliest. The Fragrant Snowbell, Styrax obassia or S. obassis, is a highly desirable, showy small tree that is initially pyramidal in form but broadens and becomes rounded with age. The large papery, rounded to oval to near heart-shaped foliage can reach 8" long and the beautiful foliage alone makes this plant worth growing. From the moist forests of Japan and Korea, the Fragrant Snowbell will benefit from protection from strong drying winds as well as a moist to average moist, loamy, well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter and an organic mulch over the root zone. Full sun to part shade tolerant but it may benefit from afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Item# 12607
