Dalechampia dioscoreifolia, Winged Beauty, Costa Rican Butterfly Vine

Click to see full-size image Dalechampia dioscoreifolia
Family: Euphorbiaceae
Winged Beauty, Costa Rican Butterfly Vine
Origin: South America
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Spurge family is well known for the poinsettia and other showy euphorbias, but not for its unusual vines. This is one which seems to enchant anyone who sees it. It has slender, somewhat hairy stems, climbing to 10-20’. Set along these are large, nearly heart-shaped, toothed leaves. The more dramatic feature, however, is the flowering shoots. Each has a pair of broad, pointed, reddish purple bracts, 2-3" long, widely spreading above and below the clustered small, whitish flowers. The impression is much like that of the Dove Tree, Davidia involucrata. Outstanding sized bracts with an eye-catching show of color characterize this vigorous growing vine. With a crepe-paper-type texture, violet pink bracts oppose each other in an open flat bloom, often reaching 5" in width. "Winged Beauty" flowers year-round with its heaviest bloom in late summer. Grows to 1-3’ in container, vining in habit, minimum temperature 50F, everbloomer. This is a plant of rather easy culture but uncertain hardiness; it might recover after freezes of close to 20F. In any case, it thrives in sun or light shade, in reasonably well drained soil, with moderate to regular watering.

Family: Euphorbiaceae
Winged Beauty Shrub
Origin: Mexico to Costa Rica
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

The genus honors Jacques Daléchamps, a 16th century French physician and botanist. This plant is related to Dalechampia dioscoreifolia which is an exotic vine with unusually looking flowers. This species is a very slow growing shrub under 3 ft. The stipules around small yellow flower centers of D. roezliana look like wings of an exotic butterfly. Leaves always look downwards. Rare in cultivation.

A tree of value. The seeds are mainly used, but are usually poisonous (cyanide) when fresh (though a few races are without cyanide). The seeds can be eaten cooked or roasted, but too much may cause dizziness.

We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.DeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsPoisonous or toxicFlood tolerant

Small, evergreen or deciduous, unisexual tree, rarely up to 20 m tall, exuding poisonous white latex from all broken surfaces. Grows on both muddy and stony soil, with its roots spreading. It requires freshwater input for a large part of the year and is commonly found on the landward margin of mangroves.

Trees bear either male or female flowers, never both. Male flowers start as upright narrow cones when young and as they develop, elongate into longer spikes (5-10cm) that eventually form drooping yellow tassels. Male flowers are said to be "very scented". Female flowers appear in shorter spikes.

Contact with skin can cause irritation and rapid blistering; contact with eyes will result in temporary blindness.

Pairs of beautiful shiny leaves deep green on top, a brilliant laquered red beneath; arching woody stems. Outstanding houseplant, but like many spurges, sap is toxic, and thus called "Blindness Tree" in Southeast Asia. Easy.

Eight compounds have been obtained from the root and stem of Excoecaria cochinchinensis growing in Tonghai county of Yunnan province (China). Leaves were extracted by various extracting procedures, using different solvents for testing the antimicrobial activities against Staphylococcus aureus.

Origin: South Africa
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate 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.Attracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Flueggea virosa is a dioecious, multistemmed, fast-growing, bushy shrub, with some small, thorn-like branches. It bears very small flowers which are creamy green. Fruit are white and fleshy. It is widely distributed in the southern Africa region. In South Africa it occurs naturally in Limpopo Province, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal. It also occurs in Zimbabwe and Tanzania. It can survive hot and dry areas and also survive mild frost. It has naturalized in Hawaii, Taiwan and in Haiku, Maui in China. In China it is known as Chinese waterberry.

The slender branches are used to make fish traps. The small fruit is sweet and eaten by people, animals and birds when ripe. The roots and fruits are believed to be an effective snakebite remedy. Roots of this plant are also used in some African communities medicinally. A research has been successful forusing this plant in treatments of hepatitis C.

Sow the seeds in a well-drained seedling growth medium. Germination is normally very good. It is a low maintenance plant that can grow without any extra feeding except watering at least once every second week. Once this plant is established, routine maintenance is unnecessary. It attracts birds and butterflies. It can also be used for creating a hedge or barrier.

Hevea brasiliensis, Rubber Tree, Sharinga Tree

Click to see full-size image Hevea brasiliensis
Family: Euphorbiaceae
Rubber Tree, Sharinga Tree
Origin: South America
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousPoisonous or toxic

In the wild, the rubber tree will grow to heights of 100 to 130 feet, and can live up to 100 years. Its most famous feature is the milky white sap, known as latex, which flows freely from the tree when a sliver of bark is removed.

The rubber tree is native to the tropical rainforest of the Amazon basin and the Guianas. It is widespread in the northern part of South America (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru) and was introduced into South-East Asia and to Africa.

Although poisonous, seeds can be eaten as a famine food after processing. Boiling removes the poison and releases the oil which can be utilised for illumination.
