(Syn.: Clusia major), Autograph Tree

We now offer a clone that has proven to be somewhat resistant to cold temperatures. In a sheltered location, the mother plant has withstood brief temperatures down to the mid 20's without harm (Vista, California - USDA zone 9a). However, no assurance can be given since micro climates do vary. This is a large shrub or small tree with broad, thick, leathery 8 inch dark green leaves. Pale pink 2 inch camellia-like flowers. Scratch your autograph on a young leaf and watch it grow. Useful landscape tree in tropical to subtropical climates or an unusual containerized house plant elsewhere.

Clusia rosea Nana Clusia rosea 'Nana'
Code: 50501
Price: $9.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Small Leafed Clusia, Dwarf Pitch Apple

Small leathery, pear-shaped leaves on compact, rounded shrub, with small light pink flowers. Popular for landscape use in tropical climates where it can be used as a low-growing shrub or ground cover. As a moderate grower, preferring full to part sun, it grows 2 feet high and spreads 2 to 3 feet wide. It even can be made into a bonsai. Native to tropical America.

We previously sold this as Clusia guttifera, which is evidently a larger growing dwarf more closely resembling Clusia rosea in form. Clusia rosea 'Nana' is the name Florida nurseries use for this plant. Both Clusia guttifera and Clusia rosea 'Nana' names have not been verified by botanists. Clusiaceae

(Cnidoscolus chayamansa), Mayan Spinach Tree, Chaya

Chaya is a highly nutritious green vegetable shrub from southern Mexico and Central America. It's very rich in protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron. Grows 6 to 8 feet high, somewhat resembling a cassava plant. As it is from the dry tropics, it is quite drought resistant. Plant in sun or light shade. It cannot take frost or water-logged soil. Butterflies love the small white flowers. Due to the fact that the leaves contain cyanide, they must be cooked to remove the toxic substances. Please do an extensive internet search for advice before consuming. USDA zones 9b - 11. Euphorbiaceae

Coprosma (Mirror Plant)

Coprosmas are evergreen shrubs from New Zealand that are grown for their colorful glossy leaves. Some varieties are used in mild climates as ground covers. All do very well in coastal areas as they are tolerant of salt spray. Plant in full sun to light shade, more shade the further inland. Give well drained soil with regular watering. They become drought resistant with age. Leaf color more intense in the autumn and winter. Flowers are insignificant. Hardy to low 20's for brief periods. USDA zones 9 - 11. Although they are usually considered landscape plants, they are excellent long-lived house plants for the amateur. Indoors they should be grown in a bright position. Those with tiny leaves are ideal as bonsai plants.

Mexican Calabash, Gourd Tree

NEW! - This small curious tree has flowers and large cannonball-like fruits that occur directly on its branches and trunk (cauliflorous). The 2½ inch bell-shaped flowers are tinted yellow with a trace of purple and open for a single night and then fall the following day. In the wild, pollinating bats are attracted by the flower's musky scent. Flowering occurs from May until November. The resulting 5 inch round, hard fruits are green, turn yellow as they ripen, and eventually fall from the tree. The round dry shells from the fruit are cut into bowls and often made into musical rattles known as maracas. To produce odd shapes for birdhouses, etc., string is sometimes tied around the fruit as it grows. When the hard fruit is broken open, seeds are exposed that are edible and high in protein with a sweet licorice-like taste. With age, the young seedlings will develop normal leaves that are trifoliolate with a leaflike winged petiole shaped like a cross.

It grows to 25 feet in height, is semi-deciduous, drought tolerant, and has a spreading low canopy and open, branching growth habit. It can be used as a unique large bonsai specimen in the landscape and is well suited for patio planters and container growing. Epiphytes love to grow on its corky bark. It does need a frost free growing environment. Native to southern Mexico and Central America south to Costa Rica. USDA zones 9b - 11. Bignoniaceae
