Bigleaf Magnolia

Scientific Name: Magnolia macrophylla

An upright, loosely branched tree with clusters of incredibly large teardrop shaped pale green leaves. The leaves can be up to 24″ long, and somewhat resemble banana tree leaves. Large, up to 11″ across, fragrant flowers with multiple large white petals bloom in late spring or early summer and are followed by an open, cone-like seed structure.  The cluster of bright red fleshy seeds are embedded in a semi-woody, bristly cone that may persist into winter. A great understory tree, it requires consistently moist soil and protection from gusting winds which can tear the large leaves.

Bird’s Foot Violet

Scientific Name: Viola pedata

Low growing perennial with deeply cleft leaves that resemble a bird’s foot that puts up a small stalk topped with a showy flower. The flowers are bluish to violet with a white throat that often has blue to violet linear stripes and a yellow center. The flower has five petals and resembles an inverted star, though the upper two petals are often joined. This violet does not spread by runners, but will self seed.  Often found in the wild on inclined areas that may also have mildly eroded soil, this is a good plant for similar situations in a garden that may be troublesome for other plants.
