Colletia hystrix is a very thorny ewergreen shrub. Covered in tiny white fragrant flowers in the autumn.

Phylica plumosa, Phylica pubescens, Flannel Flower, Flannel Bush, Featherhead

Click to see full-size image Phylica plumosa, Phylica pubescens
Family: Rhamnaceae
Flannel Flower, Flannel Bush, Featherhead
Origin: South Africa
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This attractive bush is densely covered with hairy leaves and each hair seems to gather the sunlight and make it glow. These flowers are white with long brownish tips and have a faint cinnamon scent.

Featherhead is popular in posies and flower arrangements, is long lasting as a fresh cut-flower, dries very well and so is also popular in the dried flower trade. Horticulturally it is a fantastic filler plant, setting off the better-known proteas, ericas and restios to perfection.

Companion plantings of proteas, ericas and restios are obvious choices for the fast-growing featherhead, but this decorative plant will grow happily among other plants as well, as long as the soil is well drained. It can also be grown in containers.

Even moderately saline soils are tolerated. The tree will thrive without any special care. All parts of the plant have medicinal uses. Jujube is widely cultivated China and India. The Chinese have been growing and eating jujubes for more than four thousand years and have more jujube trees than any other type of fruit tree. From Indian legends, the tree is hard because it's blessed with a boon that no matter how badly it was cut, it will not die, and even if a single root of it was left, it will spring up again... In India, the tree is held sacred: fruits are offered to Siva, and the plant is known as the "Tree which removes sorrow". Cold hardy, mature plants withstand hard freeze.

Thornless variety Taiwan. The thornless Indian jujube, sweet and it is crisp like an apple. Indian Jujube, Chinese Date - The fruits have medicinal use and are considered to be cooling and tonic. Grafted
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
