Spathicarpa is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae, all of which are endemic to South America. Spathicarpa species are notable for strongly reduced flowers arranged in a spike.

Spathodea campanulata, African Tulip Tree, Scarlet Bell Tree, Fountain Tree

Spathodea campanulata

African Tulip Tree, Scarlet Bell Tree, Fountain Tree
Family: Bignoniaceae
Origin: Uganda
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

A slender tree, which can grow up to 30 ft but is often kept smaller in gardens. It has dark green compound leaves and frequently produces clusters of large, tulip-shaped flowers at the ends of the branches. The most common flower color is bright red-orange, with a yellow border on the petals; there is also a rarer, pure yellow variety. The blooms are followed by long, boat-shaped pods that open to release masses of winged seeds. Spathodea grows rapidly from seed (those of the yellow-flowering variety do not, however, breed true) and prefers full sun, though it tolerates a wide range of conditions and poor soil. The wood tends to be brittle and, on taller specimens, breaks easily in strong winds. See Article about this tree.

Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Spathoglottis plicata is the most common terrestrial (ground dwelling) orchid. Softly textured, pleated leaves to 3Ft long emerge in February from egg-shaped pseudobulbs about 2" in diameter. The flowers range in color from white to purple and are borne on erect spikes to 3 ft tall. Flowers open a few at a time at the top of the stem and each stem can last for months. In Sri Lanka to the Pacific Islands it blooms throughout the year. Over the last century, Spathoglottis plicata has become naturalized in tropical and semitropical areas of the U.S., such as in Hawaii and Florida, where it grows in the wild and is used for landscaping. S. plicata was among the first plants to recolonize the land around Mt. Krakatoa after this mighty volcano exploded in 1883 and decimated the Indonesian island of Krakatau.
