(Syn.: Aphelandra tetragona)

Aphelandra arborea

Each shrimp plant (Justicia) like flower is about 2 inches long. The 6 inch leaves are a bright glossy green. Plant in a bright semi-shaded location. Grows somewhat straggly to a height of 3 feet.

Begonia 'Deco Raspberry Truffle'

Begonia Deco Raspberry Truffle


New! This is a rhizomatous begonia with medium sized light green leaves with dark purplish-black checkering and a light green center eye. Leaves are lobed but not quite star-shaped, more rounded. Markings are very unusual and distinct. Similar to Begonia 'Deco Checks' but larger growing.


Ceropegia sandersonii

Parachute or Umbrella Plant

Ceropegia sandersonii


New! The common name of this small succulent vine refers to its flowers that are shaped somewhat like parachutes or umbrellas. The flowers are even more unusual in that they give off a scent to trap flies. As the flies slide down the flower tube to the base they get covered in pollen. The flies are released later, as the flower withers, to pollinate other parachute flowers. It's fairly easy to grow as a basket plant or in a dry terrarium in well-drained soil and bright light (not direct sunlight). Native to Mozambique, South Africa, and Swaziland.
