Clusia rosea 'Nana'

Small Leafed Clusia, Dwarf Pitch Apple



Clusia rosea Nana

$9.95  

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

Crescentia alata

Mexican Calabash, Gourd Tree



Crescentia alata

$12.95  

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

Ficus microcarpa var. crassifolia 'Green Mound'

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



Ficus microcarpa var. crassifolia Green Mound

$8.95

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
