Dombeya wallichii, Dombeya x cayeuxii

Subfamily: Dombeyoideae
Pink Ball Tree, Tropical Hydrangea
Origin: Africa, Madagarcar
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

The plant produces beautiful pink clusters of hydrangea-like fragrant flowers that last for over 1 month.

Deep pink flowers up to 1.5 inches across subtended by densely pubescent bracts 2.5 inches long. This is a fast growing medium size multi-stem bush that can be also trained into a standard. As a tree, it can grow to 15 ft in height but it can be kept smaller with some trimming. Trimming should be done after the flowers are gone in the spring until mid-September. The old flowers remain on the plant for a long time. Cleaning up the dry flower heads is advisable for a neat appearance. You can trim it pretty much as far back as is necessary without deforming the tree. It is a strong grower and even though it is possible to grow it in a container for many years. Flowers autumn to spring. In winter, flowers cover the whole big shrub - very inmpressive! Flowers of this spectacular winter bloomer attract lots of bees and butterflies.

Dombeya x cayeuxii -probably a garden hybrid of Dombeya burgessiae X Dombeya wallichii. The genus Dombeya is named after Joseph Dombey, an 18th-century French botanist, doctor, and explorer. The species is named after Henri Cayeux, a horticulturist, responsible for many hybrids and new cultivars, who is also supposed to have created this one.

Tropical Rose Hydrangea
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

One of the showiest landscape plants! It is a real showstopper, and a bonus of this already great shrub is that it will also do well in a container. And a happy surprise it also serves as nectar plant to a large number of butterflies.

This winter bloomer puts on one of the best flower shows of any shrub here in Florida. It is sometimes called the tropical hydrangea because its flowers are similar to the hydrangeas we know from up North. The flowers are pink to rose color and bloom from fall to spring. That means it's blooming all winter in Naples during season, when the most color is desired and appreciated. Dombeya Seminole is a large shrub that grows 7 feet tall and about the same in width. It can be kept to about 5 feet tall with pruning.

This shrub will grow in full sun to partial shade and will tolerate poor soil. The more sun, the fuller the shrub, and that also encourages the maximum number of flowers. It is also fairly drought-tolerant once established.

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersUnusual colorOrnamental foliageDeciduousSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This group consists of hardy and tender shrubs and woody climbers. They are mostly deciduous plants, though a few of the tender species are evergreen. Some varieties produce blossoms with two-toned colors, while some flowers have contrasting eyes, and some may even be speckled or striped with another color. Hydrangeas are rather easy plants to grow. They prefer loamy, well drained, acidic soil (pH 6.5 to 4.5) enriched liberally with organic matter. Most hydrangeas prefer quite a bit of shade, although H. macrophylla and H. serrata will tolerate much more sun, but will still flourish in mottled sun for part of the day. In some species, the flowers change color according to the amount of aluminum and level of acidity in the soil. Propagation: cuttings from April to August.

Japanese hydrangea vine is a deciduous, woody-stemmed, climbing vine which is valued for its toothed, heart-shaped, deep green leaves and large, flat-topped, lace cap hydrangea-like clusters of white flowers which bloom in early summer. Foliage turns yellow in fall. Attaches to and grows up flat vertical surfaces such as masonry walls by stem-borne adhesive rootlets. Reddish-brown stems provide some interest in winter. Best grown in rich, medium wet, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Prune in late winter to early spring.

Dichroa is a genus of 12 species of flowering plants. The flowers are produced in a broad inflorescence similar to that of the related genus Hydrangea.

Dichroa febrifuga it blooms in broad domes of small fertile flowers of deep blue. What immediately distinguishes it are the nearly black stems on all new growth.

In some sources Dichroa febrifuga is indicated as synonim of Dichroa versicolor.

Dichroa versicolor
Family: Hydrangeaceae
Dichroa
Origin: South East Asia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Like Dichroa febrifuga it blooms in broad domes of small fertile flowers of deep blue. What immediately distinguishes it are the nearly black stems on all new growth. This shrub is dense, upright and robust, reaching over six feet. Evergreen and rather tender, it will thrive in most parts of Zones 8-10, but shoud be given a sheltered position. Best planted in sun or shade. It's best to prune to around half size after flowering to maintain vigour and flower performance next summer. Tolerant of dry spells, more so than it's sisters, the hydrangeas. Yellowing of foliage though is a sign that it needs more water, and very likely a little general fertiliser.
