Austrocedrus chilensis, Chilean cedar. Austrocedrus chilensis is an evergreen conifer superficially resembling plants in the Genus Thuja. It is native to Chile and Argentina and is closely related to the incense cedar, Calocedrus decurrens. It makes a tall tree with a crown that narrows to a cone. It has brown exfoliating bark and in the Northeast seems far more cold tolerant than most references indicate. In the Year 2002 during winter it withstood temperatures of near 0°F for several days without any damage. It is easy to root after several sharp cold periods and in the propagation phase is almost identical to Thuja occidentalis.

Baptisia australis var. minor (syn. B. minor). A plains native from Kansas to Northern Texas. This early spring bloomer with indigo-blue flowers fits nicely into the garden, rarely reaching over 24 inches in height compared to B. australis that often reaches up to 4 ft. Preferring a sunny location with spring moisture moisture and hot dry summers.
