 Catha edulis
Family: Celastraceae
Bushman's Tea, Ghat, Khat, Qat
Origin: East Africa
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.

Catha edulis is attractive in the garden. It can be planted in groups or in mixed beds where it gives height all year round and beauty in the autumn months. The plant is widely used against respiratory diseases. In tropical Africa and Arab countries it provides the habit-forming stimulant found in the leaves.

It is important to keep Catha edulis on the dry side, as overwatering will harm these plants. In certain areas it is often grown with coffee plants and in irrigated terraces.

Celastrus orbiculatus, Oriental Bittersweet

Click to see full-size image
Celastrus orbiculatus 'Diana'
 Celastrus orbiculatus
Family: Celastraceae
Oriental Bittersweet
Origin: China
Vine or creeperShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsInvasivePoisonous or toxicSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Rounded yellow three-valved capsules split open at maturity to reveal closely packed seeds completely enclosed in fleshy red or orange arils. Upon ripening the yellow outer covering contrasts beautifully with the red or pink inside. The fruits stay decorative for several months and make an excellent addition to dried flower arrangements or interior decoration. It is well suited for covering tall fences, solid structures, and makes a good plant for creating noise barriers along roads and motorways. Due to its rampant growth it can overwhelm other plants. When Celastrus orbiculatus grows by itself, it forms thickets; when it is near a tree or shrub, the vines twist themselves around the trunk. The encircling vines have been known to strangle the host tree to death.
