Begonia 'Dangling Pearls'




Begonia Dangling Pearls

$12.95  

While this begonia is nearly the first begonia named by Brad Thompson, it hasn't been previously listed online.

It is also one of the few white flowered canes which doesn't seem to turn pink when given stronger light. Stays small and compact with very little effort and makes a nice hanging basket that is nearly everblooming. Because of its dark leaves, it makes a splendid contrast when grown alongside pink and red flowered canes.

Begonia valida




Begonia valida

$9.95  

Large growing large leaved thick-stemmed begonia. For those unfamiliar with the term, thick-stemmed begonias are basically shrubs with very large diameter stems.

Leaves are almost round with slight lobes. In good light light leaves are dark green with some texture but are large and flat in low light. Blooms in late spring to early summer with profuse upright clusters of white flowers. Has the unique habit of putting out variegated leaves at various times of the year, most often in summer or during blooming period.

(Syn.: Kalanchoe pinnata, Cotyledon pinnata), Life Plant, Chandelier Plant, Hawaiian Air Plant, Oliwa Ku Kahakai



Bryophyllum pinnatum

$9.95  

This succulent plant is often sold to Hawaiian tourists as a souvenir oddity because of its ability to grow small plantlets on its leaf margins, even if just pinned to a curtain in the air. Clustered greenish white to reddish flowers dangle from the flower stalk, as on a chandelier. Fast growing, drought tolerant 2 to 3 feet high. Tolerates almost any conditions, sun or shade, but likes moisture with good drainage. Easy popular house plant.

The 2 to 3 inch tightly whorled variegated leaves are in colors of pink, green, and cream, with some purple tones. Long trailing stems are thick and succulent.

Callisia are native to the southwest USA and tropical America. Commelinaceae


90527  

Callisia fragrans 'Melnikoff'

Basket Plant, False Bromeliad, Octopus Plant



Callisia fragrans Melnikoff

$9.95

Camptosema spectabile

(Syn.: Camptosema grandiflora), Cuitelo, Cipo Tapia, Crista-De-Galo (Rooster's Crest), Dwarf Red Jade Vine
(Sometimes miss-identified as a Mucuna species)



Camptosema spectabile

$20.95  

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. USDA zones 9b - 11.

Why someone has recently given it the name of "Dwarf Red Jade Vine" is anyone's guess? It's definitely not a dwarf growing vine, nor is it a close relative of Mucuna bennettii, the tropical Red Jade Vine from Papua New Guinea. Leguminosae

Clusia lanceolata

$13.95  

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. However, it makes a fine container plant, where its size can be controlled with judicious pruning. Try growing it as a 2 foot container specimen. 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


50502  

Clusia rosea

(Syn.: Clusia major), Autograph Tree



Clusia rosea

$15.95  

We now offer a clone that has proven to be somewhat resistant to cold temperatures. In a sheltered location, the mother plant has withstood brief temperatures down to the mid 20's without harm (Vista, California - USDA zone 9a). However, no assurance can be given since micro climates do vary. This is a large shrub or small tree with broad, thick, leathery 8 inch dark green leaves. Pale pink 2 inch camellia-like flowers. Scratch your autograph on a young leaf and watch it grow. Useful landscape tree in tropical to subtropical climates or an unusual containerized house plant elsewhere.

Clusia rosea Nana

$10.95  

Small leathery, pear-shaped leaves on compact, rounded shrub, with small light pink flowers.

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

(Cnidoscolus chayamansa), Mayan Spinach Tree, Chaya



Cnidoscolus aconitifolius

$9.95  

Chaya is a highly nutritious green vegetable shrub from southern Mexico and Central America. It's very rich in protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron. Grows 6 to 8 feet high, somewhat resembling a cassava plant. As it is from the dry tropics, it is quite drought resistant. Plant in sun or light shade. It cannot take frost or water-logged soil. Butterflies love the small white flowers. Due to the fact that the leaves contain cyanide, they must be cooked to remove the toxic substances. Please do an extensive internet search for advice before consuming. USDA zones 9b - 11. Euphorbiaceae
