I'm certain this is a species of Neolitsea. Big bold leaved on this plant.

Re: Some PNW Plant Pictures * The Lomatia pic is at the bottom

very nice pics and plants.  the magnolia like plant may be a michelia (now classified as a magnolia) but if it's m. doltsopa or one of the crosses of it with m. figo like m. x foggii don't know---certainly the "furry" flower buds look like my m. x "foggii #2" (though it's much broader but that may because it's in a more exposed spot???) or maybe  even m. maudiae???? the laurel-like plant with the cool big leaves could be a neolitsea or just maybe lindera megaphylla??? (boy, do i have lots of question marks, LOL).  in any case a beautiful plant i would love to have some of.  .  the lomatia is very nice and well-worth growing in our area.  thanks for sharing.

Nice pics.  The Grevillea must be G. victoriae 'Marshall Olbrich.'  I'm pretty sure that bigleaf thing (second and third pics from the bottom) is a Viburnum.  And I have cuttings of it but can't recall the name off the top of my head.  I'm impressed that large E. gunnii is still looking good there.  I remember that thing being pretty little not so long ago.


This is my signature.  I may update it in the future.

Very impressive Brian! I haven't been to the Arboretum for a while, and find the E. gunnii growth surprising. All the E. gunnii species, subspecies, and varities I had at Issaquah were killed by the 2010 fall event. I know that tree has been there from before than event.
I need to visit the Arboretum again, to check out these plants and others. Thanks for the picture show.

Ian, you're probably right about the viburnum---especially in light of the opposite leaves on the plant (a "true" laurel of any sort would have alternate leaves).  that said, somebody should really try to get this thing available to serious plant nuts (hopefully with name, LOL) so they can get their greedy paws on such a lovely thing!!!!!

I want to say Viburnum cylindricum?  I could just check my cuttings, who knows, maybe I put a label in it

Ian, you MIGHT be thinking of v. arboricola (which may---or may not---be closely related to cylindricum).  the larger viburnums (including tinus, awabukii, japonicum,rhytidiophyllum, etc.) are IMHO a very under-used group as (small) "trees" and think they should be used more in that way.  OTOH, could say the same for a lot of the larger rhododendrons and camellias (and even photinias) as well!!!
