For 54 years, Kartuz Greenhouses has been offering distinctive varieties of rare and exotic plants. Begonias, gesneriads, hoyas and passionflowers comprise our key specialties. Among the many listings in these plant families are promising new introductions and excellent miniature varieties. In addition to our own hybrids, we also list the finest new varieties from other leading hybridizers.
Begonia Orange County
We continue to search for improved varieties of ornamental plants that are suited to container gardening. Our catalog lists many fine plants for small spaces, including a number of plants recommended for terrariums or indoor bonsai. Because many of the plants we grow are rare in cultivation, we feel it is important to provide you with informative plant descriptions and cultural suggestions. An explanation of our culture codes, when given in parenthesis, can be found in the "Cultural Information" link on the left sidebar or at the bottom of the product pages.
Sinningia conspicua
Our selection of Rare Flowering Plants and Flowering Vines features varieties of many of the most famous tropical and subtropical flowers in the world and should be of particular interest to collectors in milder climates, as well as indoor and greenhouse growers. As always our emphasis is on a broad range of flowering and foliage plants.

Whether your collection consists of just a few plants or an entire botanical garden, we hope you will look to us for your rare flowering plants.
