Escargot takes its name from the snail-like curl pattern at the base of the leaf. The foliage is striking enough to stand on its own but it's a good mixer, too. Use it with other foliage plants and brightly colored blooms. This is an extremely popular Rex hybrid begonia. Provide organic, sharp-draining soil in shade with lots of humidity. Water when soil is dry to the touch. Avoid soggy conditions, but do not allow plants to wilt. Do not over-fertilize.

Ceiba hybrid Frosty Girl Linabby - variegated, grafted

Click to see full-size image
What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

Chorisia (ceiba) hybrid Patricia (Golden)

Click to see full-size image

Can be used for bonsaibig treesmall tree 10-20 ftfull sunregular watermoderate waterwhite/off-white flowersyellow/orange flowersdeciduousthorny or spinysubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This is a new variety of Ceiba with very showy, large golden flowers with red centers.
This Ceiba is a seedling that was grown from a batch of seed collected from Willis Harding Park in North Miami. There are many varieties of Ceiba there but 98 percent of them are pink. There are two trees there with white/yellow flowers and that is Ceiba Sunset and another called Ceiba Rhodognaphalon which has had a lot of controversy over the name and is suspected to actually be a Ceiba chodatii. The two trees are close together so the cross pollination of the two is what produced this hybrid. They were naturally pollinated by bees or other pollinators (just not hand pollinated).
The hybrid is grafted
