Price: $14.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Synadenium compactum var. rubrum, incorrectly as Synadenium grantii), African Milk Bush

This is a thornless semi-succulent shrub that is grown in tropical gardens for its large fleshy colorful leaves. The leaf color varies for different forms from green with red splotches to mostly reddish-purple with green spots. Plants offered here are of the green form. It's grown as a tropical looking ornamental and can be used as an informal hedge. Grows 6 to 15 feet high. Requires part to full sun and very good drainage. This drought resistant plant doesn't like to be overwatered. It's hardy to a light frost, but will probably drop its leaves. USDA zones 9 - 12. This native of Kenya is usually misnamed in the horticulture trade being confused with its rarely grown greener relative Synadenium grantii (now known as Euphorbia umbellata). Most of the synadeniums have been reclassified into the Euphorbia family.

Warning: When injured or pruned, it produces large amounts of white latex sap which is an extreme irritant and can cause dermatitis and eye injury. Don't grow it around small children or animals that might ingest it, as it is poisonous. Euphorbiaceae

Fatshedera lizei Annemieke Fatshedera lizei 'Annemieke'
Code: 90346
Price: $12.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: × Fatshedera lizei 'Mediopicta', 'Aureovariegata', 'Aureomaculata', 'Lemon and Lime'),
Anne Mieke Tree Ivy, Golden Variegated Fatshedera, or Botanical Wonder

The original all green Botanical Wonder was a rare chance hybrid between Japanese aralia, Fatsia japonica, and ivy, Hedera (either helix or hibernica), at a nursery in France around 1910. Because of this bigeneric parentage, it can't decide if it wants to be a shrub or a vine. It has large leathery, dark green, maple-like leaves boldly splashed with yellow-green in its center. Grows best in light shade, but is tolerant of dark shade, making a nice contrast with many other shade-loving plants. In the fall are produced small clusters of sterile white flowers on terminal panicles. Train it upright as a shrub or small patio tree, espaliered against a wall, or just use it as a large vine. It lacks the damaging aerial roots of ivy. Pinch growing tips to force side branching. Because it can thrive in low light, it can easily be grown as a houseplant. Evergreen to about 20F and damaged in the mid-teens. USDA zones 8 - 11. Araliaceae

Price: $19.95

Variegated Indian Rubber Tree

New! The Variegated Rubber Plant has thick, light green leaves margined with various shades of creamy white. For a colorful contrast, new leaves appear with overtones of pink from bright red sheaths that cover the unopened leaves. In its native tropical Asia, this tree can reach an enormous height of over 100 feet with large buttresses and aerial roots. However for us, it makes an ideal specimen container plant, indoors or out, staying a manageable size for years. This is an easy houseplant, as long as it is not overwatered. Always let it dry out a bit between waterings and give it bright indirect light. Needs protection from frost. USDA zones 10 - 12. Moraceae

 
Quantity:


Ficus microcarpa var. crassifolia Green Mound Ficus microcarpa var. crassifolia 'Green Mound'
Code: 90455
Price: $9.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Ficus 'Green Mound'), Wax Ficus

Two similar varieties are often confused in the Florida plant trade. This Ficus 'Green Mound' has heavy-textured pointed leaves with the plant growing to a height of 6 feet, while Ficus 'Green Island' has somewhat smaller rounded leaves and it grows prostrate to only 3 to 4 feet in height. Our selection came from Hawaii where, like in Florida, it is used as a small shrub or a low hedge, standing up to salt, wind and drought. With almost no pruning, it forms a dense dark green mound, easily kept below six feet. It also makes a very desirable bonsai. It should be protected from frost as very cold temperatures may cause some leaf spotting, but it should survive down to an occasional 30F. It is native to Asia. USDA zones 9 - 11. Moraceae

 
Quantity:


Ficus natalensis subsp leprieurii Malay Gold Ficus natalensis subsp. leprieurii 'Malay Gold'
Code: 51442
Price: $24.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Ficus triangularis 'Variegata', Ficus triangularis 'Coconut Cream'), Variegated Dwarf Triangle Fig

Beautiful 2 to 3 inch variegated triangular leaves and a dwarf, compact habit distinguish this interesting houseplant. Young leaves are broadly edged golden yellow and patterned in shades of dark green and gray green. Older leaves are patterned light and dark green, with no two leaves exactly alike. Recommended for bonsai.

Kartuz Greenhouses has been offering this cultivar, 'Malay Gold', for over 30 years. We recently obtained 'Coconut Cream', which seems to be a popular variety in Eastern Europe. We can not detect any differences between the two and consider them to be the same plant. Moraceae
