Polyscias

The Polyscias, also known as Aralia or Panax, are cultivated in tropical areas worldwide for their showy foliage and are used as hedges, screens or in specimen plantings. They are ideal as an accent in containers for a tropical effect and are a colorful addition to the home, a conservatory, or greenhouse. These plants are native to Polynesia and southeast Asia and come in various species and cultivars. They may grow up to 12 feet high in tropical areas, such as Hawaii and southern Florida, and thrive in partial shade to full sun, in heat and humidity with ample moisture. Outdoors in these areas they are very tough and durable, rapidly coming back from neglect with moisture and feeding. Hedges are easily grown from branches planted in the ground and allowed to root. Indoors they need bright light, warmth, and a potting soil with excellent drainage. They cannot tolerate water-logged soil conditions and it is best to grow them somewhat root-bound. They make interesting Bonsai-like plants. Tip prune to shape and encourage branching. Plants are very tropical and will rapidly decline when temperatures drop below 50F. USDA zones 11 - 12.

Red Ruellia, Flower of Caipora

This is a rare winter blooming tropical ruellia with showy 2 inch wide scarlet flowers. Unusual for a ruellia, this is a vining shrub.

It blooms on older ripened growth. So give it time, light shade, adequate moisture, and warm temperatures. It sports 5 inch short-petioled elliptic leaves. Native to Bahia, Brazil, where it is found in moist forests. Our original plant came from cuttings obtained from the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Garden, Hilo. USDA zones 10-11. Acanthaceae
