Bowiea volubilis

Sea Onion, Climbing Onion

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.

(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

The ripe club-shaped seed pods burst open with a loud, explosive crack, hence its common name. It has bright green narrow pendulous leaves. Plant in a frost free position in part shade to full sun. It requires rich soil and plenty of summer water. USDA zones 9 - 11. Acanthaceae

Euphorbia bicompacta var. rubra - Green Form

(Syn.: Synadenium compactum var. rubrum, incorrectly as Synadenium grantii), African Milk Bush



Euphorbia bicompacta var. rubra (Green Form)

$14.95  

This is a thornless semi-succulent shrub that is grown in tropical gardens for its large fleshy colorful leaves. The leaf color varies for different forms from green with red splotches to mostly reddish-purple with green spots. Plants offered here are of the green form. It's grown as a tropical looking ornamental and can be used as an informal hedge. Grows 6 to 15 feet high. Requires part to full sun and very good drainage. This drought resistant plant doesn't like to be overwatered. It's hardy to a light frost, but will probably drop its leaves. USDA zones 9 - 12. This native of Kenya is usually misnamed in the horticulture trade being confused with its rarely grown greener relative Synadenium grantii (now known as Euphorbia umbellata). Most of the synadeniums have been reclassified into the Euphorbia family.

Warning: When injured or pruned, it produces large amounts of white latex sap which is an extreme irritant and can cause dermatitis and eye injury. Don't grow it around small children or animals that might ingest it, as it is poisonous. Euphorbiaceae

Ficus elastica 'Variegata'

Variegated Indian Rubber Tree



Ficus elastica Variegata

$19.95  

New! The Variegated Rubber Plant has thick, light green leaves margined with various shades of creamy white. For a colorful contrast, new leaves appear with overtones of pink from bright red sheaths that cover the unopened leaves. In its native tropical Asia, this tree can reach an enormous height of over 100 feet with large buttresses and aerial roots. However for us, it makes an ideal specimen container plant, indoors or out, staying a manageable size for years. This is an easy houseplant, as long as it is not overwatered. Always let it dry out a bit between waterings and give it bright indirect light. Needs protection from frost. USDA zones 10 - 12. Moraceae


90455  

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


51442  

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

Fockea edulis

Hottentot Bread



Fockea edulis

$12.95  

New! This collector's plant is a semi-decidous succulent perennial grown for its swollen caudiciform base. It has thin, twining stems growing up to 3 feet with 1/2 to 1 inch long gray-green oval leaves and tiny lightly scented starfish-shaped, lime green flowers. It is dioecious with male and female flowers on separate plants. In nature, the tuberous caudex grows underground reaching a size up to 2 feet in diameter. Growers leave the young plants with this base buried in the pot until the desired size is reached. It's then repotted with the caudex above ground creating the unique bonsai look. To protect this base from sunburn grow the plant in light shade. Train the twining stems on a framework or keep trimmed to keep them from growing over nearby plants. Plant in a fast-draining cactus mix and water regularly from spring to fall, then reduce watering in winter during dormancy to prevent rotting. Though the name 'edulis' indicates the plant is edible, it requires an elaborate process to rid the tuber of its toxicity. This endangered species, native to South Africa and Namibia, can withstand a light frost as low as 28F for short periods. USDA zones 9b - 11. Apocynaceae

Iochroma 'Empress'




Iochroma Empress

$11.95  

Iochroma 'Empress' is a new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has the long tubular flowers of I. cyaneum in the rare color of white with a slight flaring bell shape from I. australe. Its slightly fuzzy light pink buds open to long white flowers with wide flaring bells. It differs from our new introduction Iochroma 'White Knight' in that its flowers are always white in all light conditions and the flowers are much larger and have much more flaring bells. Also, it seems to be more upright and larger growing than 'White Knight'. So far, the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by smaller weeping side shoots with smaller numerous clusters. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading or trained up to be a tall specimen. Like most iochromas, it seems to be in some state of bloom all year.

Iochroma Queen

$11.95  

Iochroma 'Queen' is a new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has dark lavender pink buds which open to long lavender pink flowers that fade to pure pink. This is the closest an Iochroma has come to a true pink. Flowers are larger than either parent. It has the long tubular flowers of I. cyaneum with a slight flaring bell shape from I. australe. So far the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by smaller weeping side shoots with smaller numerous clusters. Flower color can be subjective in iochromas since they seem to change color with light intensity or duration. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading or trained up to be a tall specimen. Exclusive. (Thompson) Solanaceae


90304  

Iochroma 'Royalty'




Iochroma Royalty

$11.95  

Iochroma 'Royalty' is a new interspecies hybrid between Iochroma australe 'Alba' and Iochroma cyaneum. It has the wide flaring bell shape flowers from I. australe on a larger growing shrub that doesn't go dormant. 'Royalty' lives up to its name with royal purple flowers in profusion. Nearly black buds open to wide flaring dark purple, nearly black flowers in good light. May fade to more grape coloring in low light areas. Flower color can be subjective in iochromas since they seem to change color with light intensity or duration. So far, the blooming habit seems to be to put out long stems with a large cluster at the tip followed by smaller weeping side shoots with numerous smaller clusters. Much more trainable than pure I. cyaneum, this type can be trained to be low and spreading or trained upright. It is a smaller grower compared to the other interspecies hybrids of its type. Exclusive. (Thompson) Solanaceae

Kalanchoe beauverdii

(Syn.: Bryophyllum beauverdii), Beauverd's Widow's Thrill, False Hoya



Kalanchoe beauverdii

$9.95  

New! This is a very unusual kalanchoe that is sure to attract attention. It's one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe schizophylla. This succulent climber has gray wiry stems and green narrow leaves turning purple-black in high light with adventitious plantlets often forming on the leaf tips. Its hanging flowers are bell-shaped and rather large compared to the slender stems. Blooming in clusters, they are an unusual grayish green color with fine purple speckles. Flowering is in the winter and spring months. The wiry stems and hooked leaves help it vigorously scramble and twine upwards. It can swallow surrounding plants if not pruned to keep it under control. So it is best to grow it on a trellis to 8 feet or in a hanging basket where it can be allowed to cascade. Grow in full sun or bright shade and allow it to get dry between waterings. It generally likes warmth with dry cool frost-free winters. It's native to south and southwestern Madagascar, where it is found in dry shrub-land forests from sea level up to 2,750 feet in elevation. Crassulaceae

It also can be grown as an epiphyte, as it does in its native Madagascar. Best grown in a bright sunny location with protection from the midday sun in well-drained potting soil. Intolerant of frost. Crassulaceae

(Syn.: Bryophyllum pinnatum), Life Plant, Chandelier Plant, Hawaiian Air Plant, Oliwa Ku Kahakai



Kalanchoe pinnata

$9.95

Kalanchoe porphyrocalyx

(Syn.: Bryophyllum porphyrocalyx), Pearl Bells Kalanchoe



Kalanchoe porphyrocalyx

$11.95  

Pearl Bells is a compact, bushy succulent growing up to 8 inches high with slender leaves that are rubbery and irregularly notched.

Kalanchoe schizophylla

(Syn.: Bryophyllum schizophyllum)



Kalanchoe schizophylla

$11.95  

New! This is a very curious kalanchoe, as it is one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe beauverdii. Its smooth leaves are deeply cut with a fern-like appearance turning orangish in bright light. It climbs by means of its hook-like finely divided mature leaves. The stems are thin curling up to 12 feet or more in length. The seldom seen inflorescence consists of pendulous, bell-shaped lavender-grey flowers in spring to summer. It seems to be given to vegetative growth so that flowering is rare, especially if frequent pruning has been necessary. The variable leaves are very decorative and the plants are easy to grow. In its native Madagascar it is a hemiepiphyte (seedlings growing in the canopy as an epiphyte, later with roots growing down into the ground). It is found in rocky and shady brush in central Madagascar from 3 to 5 thousand feet in elevation. All parts are toxic, a rarity in the family Crassulaceae. Give it bright shade with extra humidity, well-drained potting soil and water sparingly. Grow it as an epiphyte, in a hanging basket, or as an interesting climber on a trellis. Intolerant of frost. Crassulaceae
