Acacia redolens is a low growing and wide spreading ground cover.

Although Acacia redolens is quite drought resistant, it also tolerates periodic flooding, and a number of landscape architects have used it successfully in retention basins. This groundcover acacia has proven its value time and again as a first class slope coverage for hot dry banks.

This plant requires regular irrigation during the hot summer months.

Acmella oleracea, Spilanthes oleracea, Toothache Plant, Paracress, Botox Plant, Jambu

Click to see full-size image Acmella oleracea, Spilanthes oleracea
Family: Asteraceae / Compositae
Toothache Plant, Paracress, Botox Plant, Jambu
Origin: Brazil
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange 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.

Toothache Plant is a medicinal herb that has been used for generations to manage the pain of toothaches. Both the leaves and the attractive golden flowers can be used as a natural anesthetic. Simply chew the leaves or flowers for a few seconds then you will experience a tingling and numbing sensation in your mouth. An infusion or tincture made from the Toothache Plant is said to promote gum and throat health due to its strong antibacterial properties. For culinary purposes, small amounts of shredded fresh leaves are said to add a unique flavor to salads. Cooked leaves lose their strong flavor and may be used as leafy greens. Both fresh and cooked leaves are used in dishes such as stews in northern Brazil. They are combined with chilis and garlic to add flavor and vitamins to other foods. The use of jambu extract as a food flavor is described as having an odor of citrus, herbal, tropical or musty odor, and its taste can be pungent, cooling, tingling, numbing, or effervescent.

Acmella Oleracea extract is considered a natural alternative to Botox. Applied topically, Acmella Oleracea reportedly reduces muscle tension, reducing facial wrinkles caused by tense or contracted facial muscles. It is considered a natural muscle relaxant and has been traditionally used as an herbal Orajel of sorts, thanks to the presence of analgesic alkylamides called spilanthol. This spilanthol is thought to have the same paralyzing effects on facial muscles as it does on gums, reducing wrinkles by relaxing the skin. It’s seen in topical formulas and can easily penetrate the skin, inhibiting contractions in subcutaneous muscles.

The plant is a small, erect, it grows quickly and bears gold and red inflorescences. It is frost-sensitive but perennial in warmer climates. Can be grown in a container and as a houseplant.

Aeschynanthus radicans, Lipstick Plant

Click to see full-size image Aeschynanthus radicans
Family: Gesneriaceae
Lipstick Plant
Origin: Southeast Asia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

Aeschynanthus is a large genus of Old World tropical herbs. In many respects, they are analogous to the genus Columnea in Central and South America -- both are most often trailing epiphytes with fairly large and showy flowers that are frequently pollinated by birds. The appearance of the various Aeschynanthus species varies widely. The original 'Lipstick Plant' has hard-surfaced shiny leaves, with bright red flowers that emerge from a very dark red tubular calyx, in a fashion reminiscent of lipstick emerging from a tube. It is an epiphyte that grows in the angles of branches in the rain forest. As with all epiphytes, the lipstick plant does not live as a parasite on the tree, but takes its nourishment from fallen leaves and twigs that accumulate in the crevices of branches. Needs plenty of light, but not direct sunlight. They thrive in summer heat, and winter temperatures should not drop below 60 degrees.

Aeschynanthus sp., Lipstick Plant, Lipstick Vine

Click to see full-size image Aeschynanthus sp.
Family: Gesneriaceae
Lipstick Plant, Lipstick Vine
Origin: Ecuador and Colombia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeKeep soil moistRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

A very attractive flowering vine, that is mostly used in hanging pots. Water freely durning spring to fall, but keep the soil a little drier in the winter. The trailing stems can be 2ft long, so they may need pruning after flowering has finished. The plant tolerates most house temperatures. Ideal temperatures are 60 degrees at night but 10 to 15 degrees higher during the day. A. pulcher is one of the classic lipstick plants, and is similar to A. lobbianus -- except for the tan colored calyx.
