Maniltoa lenticellata (?)
 Maniltoa sp.
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Dove Tree, Handkerchief Tree, Ghost Tree
Origin: New Guinea
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliageUltra tropical, min. temperature 55FUnknown name

The tassel of juvenile leaves hanging down limp. Undoubtedly a handsome tree, it characteristically branches low but with the main branches ascending close to each other to form a tight multiple-stem with a surprisingly tidy symmetrical crown. It is the handkerchief tree par excellence, the large rounded crowns being covered with evenly spaced handkerchieves of white at frequent intervals. The limp tassels of new leaves first develop within large buds covered in papery brown scales. These foliage buds are very similar to the buds that protect the developing inflorescences. New leaves and inflorescences appear simultaneously. The inflorescences are mostly held at the ends of the branches and are made up of many white flowers with papery brown bracts. When first open, the inflorescences are very attractive in their virginal white with yellow anthers, but within a few days they tend to brown where the flowers are damaged and the anthers have shed their pollen. The trees flush new leaves and blooms every few months and are particularly attractive in the evening twilight when the contrast between the hankies and the dark crown seems strongest. The flush leaves of Maniltoa browneoides are white becoming green within a few days.

Maniltoa browneoides

Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersDeciduous

Mariosousa willardiana is a very slender tree with few branches as well as leaves. Beside the lacy form of this tree, its other distinguishing feature is the peeling, papery, silver-white bark. The Spanish common name translates into 'white stick', defining its peeling white bark. The flowers are like catkins, rod or bottle-brush-like, white or cream colored.

Millettia reticulata, Evergreen Wisteria, Summer Wisteria

Click to see full-size image Millettia reticulata
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Evergreen Wisteria, Summer Wisteria
Origin: Southern China and Taiwan
Vine or creeperFull sunModerate waterBlue/lavender/purple flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Evergreen wisteria is not only a beautiful and fragrant perennial vine, it's also an excellent alternative to the more commonly seen Chinese wisteria, which is invasive. Sometimes called summer wisteria, this plant is native to southern China and Taiwan, but is not invasive.

It is a gorgeous, reliable, fragrant flowering vine that will climb to a height of 30 feet in favorable growing conditions. Plant it with support to provide lush shade over a walkway or patio, or use it to create a thick living wall on a trellis or cables.

Unlike the lavender-blooming Chinese and Japanese wisteria (Wisteria sinensis and W. floribunda), evergreen wisteria is not an invasive plant.

Evergreen wisteria can reach heights of 30 feet, however it can be pruned smaller.

This vine can adapt to most soil pH's and can grow in any soil type. This vine does require well draining soil and can grow in full sun to partial shade. Plant it in autumn to establish the roots through the winter. It will quickly cover a pergola, provide a perfumed scent and attract pollinators throughout the spring and summer.

Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Fragrant Mimosa, Pink Mimosa
Origin: Mexico
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersFragrantDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsThorny or spiny

Fragrant Mimosa is a deciduous, small shrub, 3 by 3 feet, with somewhat zigzag, rigid branches with small, delicate pinnately compound leaves. The soft pink puffballs are a contrast to the sneaky, strongly recurved thorns up and down the branches.

An excellent plant for a xeriscape garden, Fragrant Mimosa can be planted in a garden with a desert theme, in rocky, sunny areas or as a backdrop. It will also tolerate partial shade. It makes a great background shrub.

Mimosa pudica, Mimosa strigillosa, Sensitive Plant

Click to see full-size image Mimosa pudica, Mimosa strigillosa
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Sensitive Plant
Origin: Tropical America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

It is a fun plant to grow. The leaves fold up when touched. If touched with a bit more force, the petioles will also bend at their pulvinis and the leaves droop. These movements are called seismonastic movements (reaction to physical shock). At night, the leaves will also fold and bend in movements known as nyctonastic movements (reaction to absence of light). The plant flowers in mid to late summer. The flowers are globe shaped, about 1" across. Mimosa pudica needs full sun to partial shade, with a rich moist soil. We use a soil mix consisting of 2 parts peat moss to 2 parts loam to 1 part sand or perlite. The soil should be kept evenly moist but not saturated. During the growing season, the plant are fertilized on a weekly basis with a balanced fertilizer diluted to 1/2 the strength recommended on the label. During the winter months, fertilize on a monthly basis. Winter temperatures should not fall below 65F; if they do get chilled, then the plant suffers with yellowing of leaves and stems. Propagation: Mimosa pudica is propagated from seed. Seed will germinate in 14 to 21 days at 70F.

Close related species - Mimosa strigillosa that is also used as a ground cover.

Sensitive Plant. It is a fun plant to grow. The leaves fold up when touched. If touched with a bit more force, the petioles will also bend at their pulvinis and the leaves droop. These movements are called seismonastic movements (reaction to physical shock). At night, the leaves will also fold and bend in movements known as nyctonastic movements (reaction to absence of light). It is a wonderful groundcover, can integrate with grass and pink powderpuff flowers stick out of grass - very showy! Can be mowed over with no damage to established plants.
Close related to Mimosa pudica - Mimosa strigillosa, very similar looking. It is also sensitive to touch but the growth
habit is prostrate and the leaf arrangement is not palmate. The leaves of Mimosa pudica are palmate. We carry both species, mixed variety.
