Wallichia disticha, Wallichia 

Click to see full-size image Wallichia disticha
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Wallichia
Origin: Himalaya
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Wallichia disticha is found in Assam, Bangladesh, China, East Himalaya, Thailand, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India.

An extremely unusual looking palm, in which the leaves form just two rows on either side of the trunk i.e. looking down on the palm, the leaves would all form a single straight line. It grows to about 20 ft tall, while the long, course leaflets are dark green above, and greyish white underneath.

Although it comes from the Himalaya, it comes from the lower reaches which are still tropical, so it prefers that climate, however it will grow in sheltered sub-tropical areas.

Family: Rubiaceae
Wild Poinsettia, Chaconia, Pride of Trinidad

This shrub produces large sprays of showy red sepals with tiny yellow flowers.

This is a type of loosely organized pseudanthium or cluster of flowers that mimics a single flower as the attraction unit for pollinators. It is the national flower of Trinidad and Tobago.

Washingtonia filifera, California Fan Palm, Desert Fan Palm, American Cotton Palm, Cotton Palm

Click to see full-size image Washingtonia filifera
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
California Fan Palm, Desert Fan Palm, American Cotton Palm, Cotton Palm
Origin: California
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeThorny or spinySeaside, salt tolerant plant

California Fan Palm can grow 60 ft tall with a crown spread of 15 ft. The massive gray trunk is barrel shaped and ringed with old leaf scars, and may reach over 3 ft in diameter at its widest point. California Fan Palm can have up to thirty gray-green palmate (fan-shaped) leaves, each 3-6 ft across. They spread out to form a loose and open crown. The petioles (leaf stems) of mature palms are armed along the margins with curved thorns; those of young palms are largely unarmed. The individual leaflets are pendulous and swing freely in the wind. Abundant cotton-like threads on and between the leaflets persist even when the palm is mature. People often confuse W.Filifera and W.Robusta .as they are quite similar, particularly when small. The main distinguishing features are that Filifera is shorter and fatter, more big thorns and has cotton threads even when old. Robusta is much more slender, almost no thorns and only has cotton threads when young. W.Filifera is surprisingly cold hardy and will survive a Southern UK winter with slight protection when the plant is about 3 feet tall. A fantastic palm for the beginner, quick and easy to grow from seed (germinate in about 2 weeks) and a must have for the tropical garden. The seeds of California Fan Palm are small cm in diameter, they germinate very easily in a warm place compared to other palms. Washingtonia seeds will typically take about 10 to 21 days to germinate and sprout above the ground, if planted about 1" below the surface. For best results place some soil in a small plastic bag and hang in a warm place in your house. Prefers full sun when large, well drained situation with regular watering.

Washingtonia robusta, Washingtonia, Mexican Fan Palm

Click to see full-size image Washingtonia robusta
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Washingtonia, Mexican Fan Palm
Origin: Mexico, Florida
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Form: tall palm with fan fronds and thin trunk. Size: 75ft or more, frond spread 10-12ft, trunk diameter may be only 12-14in. Leaves: fan 3-4ft wide, petioles are typically toothed, bright green. Flowers: large stalks extend beyond fronds with small white/cream flowers, bloom in early summer. Fruit: pea-sized black/blue seed. Stems/Trunks: distinctively narrow, sways in wind. Hardiness: leaf damage at 20°F, recovers quickly; hard freezes may completely kill even mature specimens Landscape: skyline, tree silhouette, tropical effect Culture: full sun, rapidly grows above all other canopy. Water: moderate, deep, drought tolerant; best on once per month. Propagation: seed from isolated source; hybridizes readily . Maintenance: high; frond removal, trunk shaving, will sometimes self shave if leaves fall off cleanly grows rapidly (6ft per year). When young most people prefer shaved trunk look, frond removal and shaving best done professionally. Tolerates soils and drought. Vulnerable to root rot in wet soils.

Watsonia sp., Watsonia

Click to see full-size image Watsonia sp.
Family: Iridaceae
Watsonia
Origin: South Africa, Madagascar
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

The genus is named after Sir William Watson, a British botanist.

There are 52 species in southern Africa; all are perennial herbs growing from corms and producing erect spikes of showy flowers, and are adapted to a mediterranean-type climate.

The commonest species in cultivation is the pink-flowered W. borbonica and its white mutant 'Arderne's White'. These were crossed with W. meriana and other species in the early 20th century by breeders including John Cronin in Australia and Luther Burbank in California to produce a wide range of cultivars.

Watsonia is tough and easy to grow, with a long flowering period. It does best in full sun in well-drained, well-composted soil and although adapted to a winter rainfall climate, will thrive under summer rainfall conditions provided it is grown in well-drained soil. It can withstand mild winter frost but should be lifted and stored dry during winter in cold climates. After flowering, the leaves and stems can be cut back. Stop watering pot-grown specimens and if necessary, move them to a cool, dry place for the rest of the dormant period. To avoid overcrowding and to get the most flowers, clumps are best lifted and divided every three to five years.

Suitable for any size of garden and ideal for the water-wise winter rainfall garden, Watsonia looks magnificent in mass plantings, planted in clumps in herbaceous borders and grown in large containers. Even when not in flower, its foliage is decorative and after flowering has finished, its purplish stems and seed capsules are also attractive.

Watsonia produces offsets (daughter corms) abundantly, and the easiest method of propagation is by division.

Welwitschia mirabilis, Welwitschia, Tumboa

Click to see full-size image Welwitschia mirabilis
Family: Welwitschiaceae
Welwitschia, Tumboa
Origin: Namib Desert
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsOrnamental foliage

This is a strange, bizarre desert plant which grows from a short, thick trunk, with only two leaves that continuously grow from their base, and a long, thick taproot. After germination, the cotyledons grow to 25-35 mm in length, and are followed shortly afterwards by the appearance of the two permanent leaves. These leaves are produced opposite that of the cotyledons, and continue to grow throughout the life of the plant, eventually growing to 2-4 m long and usually becoming split into several strap-shaped sections.
