Plants enjoy profuse amounts of water, but will grow in drier areas. They grow best in areas of light sun or shade. Flowers are small and fluffy, with a creamy, white color. Flowering is generally Spring, and is followed by large bunches of the fruit which ripen a couple of months later.

Different Aconitum species (and their varieties) scattered across temperate regions of globe.

These are handsome plants, the tall, erect stem being crowned by racemes of large and eye-catching blue, purple, white, yellow or pink zygomorphic flowers. Aconitum is grown in gardens for its attractive spike like inflorescences and showy flowers.

All Aconitum plants contain poisonous alkaloids that can, in sufficient quantity, be deadly. Man has used Aconitum as a medicine and poison for thousands of years. Outside Europe it was widely used for its medical properties.

Acorus gramineus variegatus, Sweet Flag

Click to see full-size image Acorus gramineus variegatus
Family: Acoraceae
Sweet Flag
Origin: Japan
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

The plants are evergreen in warmer climates, but they will die back to ground level in colder climates. Although they are water lovers, this species can take quite a bit of drought. I have seen this plant used as an accent in dry rock gardens.

Acrocarpus fraxinifolius, Pink Cedar, Balangi, Kurungatti

Click to see full-size image Acrocarpus fraxinifolius
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Pink Cedar, Balangi, Kurungatti
Origin: South Asia
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This tree is monospecific (only one in the genus) that is native to the mountain rainforests along the Himalayas. It is a fast growing large deciduous tree that can have a buttressed base with a straight trunk of a light gray colored bark and spreading horizontal stems that form a rounded crown. It has bipinnately compound leaves that are a bright reddish pink color when first emerging, then a pinkish yellow and finally a lime green color before maturing, giving the tree a multicolored look at the branch tips much of the spring and summer. In the early spring, just before or as the tree first leafs out, appear the many scarlet-red flowers in 3 to 6 inch long dense racemes near the branch tips, giving inflorescence a bit of a bottlebrush look.

Plant in full sun and irrigate deeply regularly to occasionally. Hardiness - it is tolerant to nighttime dips to at least 28° F. As the specific epithet implies, this plant looks similar to an Ash (in the genus Fraxinus) and other common names include Australian Ash, Indian Ash, Kenya Coffeeshade, Mundani, Red Cedar and Shingle Tree.

Native to Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand.

Actinidia arguta, Issai Mini-Kiwi - seeds

Click to see full-size image

Japanese Kiwi cultivar Issai begins fruiting the second year - no pollinator needed! Compact enough to grow in a container. It brings the beauty and flavor of kiwifruit to your garden without the giant size. This mini-Kiwi has a restrained habit, needs no pollinator, and sets the most delicious miniature fruit. In the garden or even in containers, you will find it easy and rewarding.
This deciduous vine is much less vigorous than other varieties - it grows easily but won't take over the garden. A twining climber, it offers glossy foliage, fragrant 1-inch white blooms in early summer, and a generous harvest of 1- to 1 3/4-inch fruit in mid-fall.
Issai has a really remarkable flavor, much sweeter and more succulent than the fuzzy kiwis found in most stores. The fruit is smooth, green, and just a little soft when fully ripe.
Best of all, Issai is self-fertile, so you need plant only one. It thrives in full sun to partial shade, and prefers good soil on the acidic side. Do not fertilize this vine too heavily; this can trigger lush foliage growth but poor flowering and fruiting.
It fruits somewhat late, making it a great choice for southern climates as well. You simply cannot go wrong with this delightful mini Kiwi! Zones 4-9.
