Clusia rosea 'Nana'

Small Leafed Clusia, Dwarf Pitch Apple



Clusia rosea Nana

$10.95  

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

Ficus microcarpa var. crassifolia 'Green Mound'

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



Ficus microcarpa var. crassifolia Green Mound

$9.95  

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

Ficus natalensis subsp. leprieurii 'Malay Gold'

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



Ficus natalensis subsp leprieurii Malay Gold

$74.95  

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
