How about...
Acer (e.g. integerrimum = subpictum) (tree)
Cercidophyllum crenatum
Daphnogene (recent: Cinnamomum) (tree, shrub)
Glyptostrobus (tree)
Liquidambar  (tree)
Osmunda (fern)
Platanus (tree)
Perocarya (shrub)
Sequoia (tree)
Taxodium (tree)
Ulmus (tree, shrub)
Zelkova (tree, shrub)

Some of these plants are "living fossils", but there are also very
strange plants like Welwitschia mirabilis (only distributed in the
Namib desert)...

Best regards
