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 'Copper King'




Begonia Copper King

$12.95  

Small rhizomatous begonia. The name is a bit of a misnomer in that it really should be Copper Kid or something with a small name, but just didn't seem to fit. The picture doesn't do justice to the strong overall copper color of the leaf. Younger leaves have somewhat shallow lobes but mature leaves are more star shaped. The copper coloring is most vivid in the center and along the central veins and along the sparsely hairy edge. A smaller begonia but still vigorous and easy to grow with plenty of white to light pink flowers in spring. A good candidate for a windowsill, small basket, or just as a potted plant.

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 'Wild Pony'




Begonia Wild Pony

$12.95  

This medium to large leaved rhizomatous begonia has been in circulation for at least 40 years. It was originally a seedling just labeled Bokit x carrieae created by Leslie Woodriff but was later named and circulated under the name 'Wild Pony' by Brad Thompson. It is somewhat wild and sprawling and takes a little work to make a nicely shaped plant. But it's a wonderful plant for hybridizing, as it seems to pass on it's vigor, spirals, and coloring, which is green with dark markings along the veins. Easy to grow and a survivor, as its longevity in circulation would imply. New Kartuz introduction for 2017. (Woodriff)

Bowiea volubilis

Sea Onion, Climbing Onion



Bowiea volubilis

$13.95  

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

Bryophyllum pinnatum

$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

Ceropegia sandersonii

Parachute or Umbrella Plant



Ceropegia sandersonii

$9.95  

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.

$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.

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

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

× Fatshedera lizei 'Annemieke'

(Syn.: × Fatshedera lizei 'Mediopicta', 'Aureovariegata', 'Aureomaculata', 'Lemon and Lime'),
Anne Mieke Tree Ivy, Golden Variegated Fatshedera, or Botanical Wonder



Fatshedera lizei Annemieke

$12.95  

The original all green Botanical Wonder was a rare chance hybrid between Japanese aralia, Fatsia japonica, and ivy, Hedera (either helix or hibernica), at a nursery in France around 1910. Because of this bigeneric parentage, it can't decide if it wants to be a shrub or a vine. It has large leathery, dark green, maple-like leaves boldly splashed with yellow-green in its center. Grows best in light shade, but is tolerant of dark shade, making a nice contrast with many other shade-loving plants. In the fall are produced small clusters of sterile white flowers on terminal panicles. Train it upright as a shrub or small patio tree, espaliered against a wall, or just use it as a large vine. It lacks the damaging aerial roots of ivy. Pinch growing tips to force side branching. Because it can thrive in low light, it can easily be grown as a houseplant. Evergreen to about 20F and damaged in the mid-teens. USDA zones 8 - 11. Araliaceae

In the fall, it has clusters of small, sterile greenish-white flowers in terminal panicles. Grow in part to full shade. This evergreen can be trained as a shrub or vine with support. Makes a very nice espalier on a shady wall. Pinch growing tips to encourage side branching. Because it can thrive in low light, it can easily be grown as a houseplant. USDA zones 8 - 11. Araliaceae

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
