Asimina reticulata

Netted Pawpaw
Family: Annonaceae
Origin: Florida to Georgia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

A medium size shrub up to 5-6 ft tall with succulent-looking narrow leaves and delicately fragrant creme flowers attracting bees, butterflies and other incects. Fragrance is honey-like. Flowers are 2-3" wide and have unusual shape. Pawpaw flowers are strange, nodding structures; the netted pawpaw has one of the prettier blooms. The flower is trimerous. The stamens are tightly packed forming a solid hemisphere of anthers surrounding the receptacle. Three or more stigmas emerge from the center of the anthers. The flowers are ready for pollination before the anthers shed their pollen. This ensures that the flowers are cross-pollinated; pollen must come from an older flower, preferably on a different plant. This species can be found in dry areas that get swampy for a few months during rainy summer season. Blooms in spring. Unlike other members of the Annonaceae, the pawpaws are found outside of the tropics.

Asimina triloba

Pawpaw, American Custard Apple, West Virginia Banana, Indiana Banana
Family: Annonaceae
Origin: North America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Deciduous tree growing to about 30 feet, with large drooping leaves and curious flowers of disagreeable odor opening in the spring before the leaves. The fruit is 3"-5" long and is almost black when ripe, with a highly aromatic flavor. The fruit tastes like mix of papaya and banana and is often called an Indian banana. The name pawpaw comes from the Arawakan Indian name for the papaya. Grows as far north as New York and southern Ontario, out west as far as Nebraska and Texas, and south to Florida. The young plant is very sensitive to full sunlight and requires filtered sun for the first year or two. The use of tree shelters is an ideal solution to the problem, permitting the plant to receive a full day of filtered sunlight. Once established, pawpaws prefer full sun. The large dangling leaves dislike strong winds. Pawpaws do best in deep, fertile soil that is moist, but well-drained and slightly acid (pH 5-7).

This is an evergreen tree, around 30 to 45Ft in height, with gracefully drooping branches. It is often grown in the gardens of Southeast Asia because of its yellow-green, highly fragrant, drooping flowers, which appear almost continuously on the leafy twigs. Though not striking from a distance, green when they first appear and becoming yellow with maturity, these are very fragrant and are used as offering or to scent a room. Fragrance embraces the yard for many yards around. The flower itself though not standing out among green leaves from the distance, still looks very stylish and reminds an elegant accessory for a luxurious brand name evening dress in addition to it's wonderful fragrance. No wonder the flowers are used for production of Chanel#5 perfume. There is also a smaller form of this plant - Cananga odorata var. fruticosa that grows into a dense shrub about 9ft in height. Cananga does best in full sun but will grow in light shade. Propagation is by seeds, more difficult by cuttings. Very fast growing.

Small tree or large shrub. Highly perfumed flowers of this representative of Annonaceae family are inconspicuous and pale yellow, hanging from multiple branches. From distance, one can think those are yellow leaves - they have the shape of a elongated leaf. Fragrance is very strong and resembles one of Ylang-Ylang.

Not everybody can grow Cananga odorata, Ylang-Ylang Tree. It is fast growing and can get pretty big. You need to have room to grow it. With the Desmo, a small relative you get that intense fragrance but in a plant that can be kept around 3 to 4ft. It is a better choice for those with limited space. And for those in cold areas that will need to protect tropical plants in the winter and otherwise would have a hard time growing the full size Ylang-Ylang. Flowering - warmer months of the year. Growth: moderate; light: filtered light; watering: average; min.temp.: low 30C
