These plants should not be confused with Asystasia gangetica ssp. micrantha, which has white 1 inch bell-shaped flowers with purple stripes and hairy leaves and stems. That plant should never be planted, as it is a very serious weed.

Ballochia rotundifolia




Ballochia rotundifolia

$14.95  

NEW! - This very rare endangered plant is native to the island of Socotra (part of Yemen) located in the Arabian Sea. The foliage looks somewhat like that of boxwood, but with small 1 inch slightly bent orange tubular flowers in summer. It's a low growing, heavily branched shrub growing up to 3 feet high, with gray twigs, and rounded ½ inch long dark green leaves. In its natural habitat, it grows at an elevation of 1,500 to 2,000 feet in subtropical/tropical drought-deciduous forests, with only about 15 inches of rainfall a year. There is no information available on its culture and habit in cultivation. It would seem to be a long-lived, drought resistant shrub that needs excellent drainage, full sun, and protection from frost. It could possibly be trained as an unusual bonsai.

Bartlettina sordida

Blue Mist Flower



Bartlettina sordida

$9.95  

NEW! - This is a fast growing perennial shrub in the Daisy family from the cloud forests of Mexico. Grows up to 10 feet in height with large, velvety green, tropical looking leaves. In early Spring, it blooms with massive clusters of ageratum-like fragrant flowers of bluish-violet. It thrives in bright shade and rich, moist soil. It does best in mild climates with cool nights.

80126  

Bartlettina sp.

Blue Spur Flower, Blue Mist Flower



Bartlettina sp

$9.95  

This strikingly beautiful shrub comes from the cloud forests of Mexico. The large velvety heart-shaped leaves are purplish green with purple veining, dark purple beneath. Young growth and stems are deep maroon-purple with large bluish violet ageratum-like flower clusters in spring. Fast growing to 4 feet high. Needs bright shade and ample water. Can be grown in a cool greenhouse in large pots in the winter (minimum temperature 35F) and then brought outdoors in spring and summer. Give frost protection. USDA zones 9 - 11.

With hundreds of Ageratum, Bartlettina, and Eupatorium species, the proper identification of this plant is uncertain. It is sometimes offered elsewhere as Ageratum corymbosum, but it does not fit the botanical description for A. corymbosum (flat-top whiteweed, desert ageratum). Also, listed by another grower as Ageratum 'Azure Skies'. The typical Bartlettina sordida has greener leaves and is larger growing. Our guess is that this is probably a variety or subspecies of Bartlettina sordida or a closely related species. Asteraceae

$11.95

Begonia 'Bad Kitty'




Begonia Bad Kitty

$11.95  

NEW! - As quoted from the breeder, Brad Thompson: "Begonia 'Bad Kitty' gets her name from the fact that initially her coloring reminded me of a tabby cat, but then as the year progresses the leaves get much redder with bright glowing eyes. Besides that, she's a little bit unruly. Someone asked me why I would name a begonia that grew so wild? I said it would be a little boring if we only named and grew the begonias that made small round perfect show plants. Most of the year 'Bad Kitty' is in its red form and the rhizomes are large and growing a little crazy. The leaves are star shaped, medium-sized, and hairy. They also grow on long petioles that are covered with white contrasting hair. She is also a very profuse bloomer in the spring with flowers on long stalks. 'Bad Kitty' just does what she wants. She makes an interesting hanging basket and you can't complain about how easy she is to grow or the intense red color. Everyone needs a begonia that's a little wild and a challenge. 'Bad Kitty' lives up to her name, as she is a cat after all." (Thompson)

$11.95  

Leaves are lobed with lazy double spirals and a lightly hairy surface. As with all rhizomatous, the coloration can be variable with the light conditions. Begonia 'Carol Knight' may vary from its tawny brown color, especially in good light where its new leaves are red that gradually fade to an unusual aqua marine green. In all its color changes it maintains its most prominent features which are its prominent red veins, glowing center, and a waxy layer to mature leaves. The waxy layer makes taking photos that do it justice much harder. Leaves are also sparsely hairy with a serrated hairy edge. Hot pink flowers in spring. Very full growing, vigorous and easy to grow. Visitors who see it in person always are drawn to it. Very novel and a great begonia to collect. (Thompson)

Begonia coccinea




Begonia coccinea

$8.95  

This begonia has been circulated under this name for many years, although it doesn't really seem like a cane or match the original description, or accounts by the first growers. This is a sprawling, nearly trailing plant with thick and waxy pale green, slightly cupped smooth edged leaves with a nearly constant supply of dangling bright red flowers. Not always easy to grow but worth the effort. It does not seem to do well with cold or overwatering, so it is easier to keep if grown indoors, in a greenhouse, or given some protection from cold weather. Make sure to let it dry out before watering. Makes a nice hanging basket and is a novel species to collect.

Bowiea volubilis

$12.95  

NEW! - This bulb is a curiosity. It's neither from the sea or related to an onion, but instead is a member of the Asparagus family. The long-lived pale green bulb can grow up to 10 inches across, from which emerges a dense froth of lacy stems climbing up to 6 feet in height (resembling an asparagus fern). In winter, the stems die back as it enters dormancy. It is treated as a succulent and thrives on neglect. Plant in well-draining soil, only half buried, and keep on the dry side in winter. Best in partial shade. In cold climates it needs to be brought indoors during the winter. Be cautious as the bulb is reported to be toxic if ingested. Native to southern and eastern Africa. Asparagaceae

Camptosema grandiflora

$19.95  

Spectacular vine from Brazil with long pendulous chains of fiery orange-red flowers. It can be brought to bloom after a couple of seasons in a large container, but this heavy vine needs a large support. It's best outdoors or in a conservatory or greenhouse where enough space can be given. An arbor is ideal so that the brilliant flowering racemes can hang down from the ceiling. Blooms in fall and winter. Prune heavily in spring after flowering. Give full or partial sun with adequate moisture and fertilizer.

It hails from the Cerrados parts of Minas Gerais and Sao Paulo states of Brazil at an elevation of 1,500 to 3,000 feet. Therefore, it can tolerate some drought and frost. It survived 4 nights that dropped briefly to 25F at the nursery without any damage. However, its hardiness range is not yet known, probably USDA zones 9b - 11. Fabaceae subfamily Faboideae

Red-Heart Porcelain Flower, Lance-leaf Autograph Tree



Clusia lanceolata

$12.95  

NEW! - This showy exotic has lovely 1½ inch porcelain white flowers with a dark red center and 3 inch narrow, leathery leaves. In nature it grows as a shrub or small tree to 10 feet high.

It starts blooming at a young age and for most of the year, with the flowers holding on for a few days. Grows well in full sun to light shade. It's native to sandy coastal areas of Brazil and Venezuela, so it's tolerant of tropical seacoast conditions, such as wind, drought, and salt air. It's frost tender, so winter protection is necessary in colder climates, with a minimum temperature of 40F. It's well adapted to subtropical and tropical gardens. USDA zones 10 - 12. Clusiaceae

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
