Syncarpia glomulifera

Turpentine Tree, Yanderra
Family: Myrtaceae
Origin: Australia
USDA Zone: 10-11?
USDA Plant Hardiness MapBig tree taller than 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite, off-white flowers

Syncarpia glomulifera is native to Australia and is an .

The fast-growing Turpentine Tree is an attractive tree, with a dramatic, evergreen glossy grey-green spreading canopy. It can be grown as a large tree, with a height of 20ft or more, as well as a small tree, growing 10-20ft in height. It can be planted in either full sun or semi-shade and will tolerate either regular or moderate water requirements. From spring to summer it produces spectacular clusters of white or off-white flowers.

The Turpentine Tree thrives in USDA Zones 10-11. In cold regions, it can be grown in a pot and will need to be taken indoors in the winter months. When potted, it still needs plenty of sun to reach its full potential, and regular watering to keep the soil moist. It will also benefit from a light application of a balanced fertilizer, once a month during the growing season.

In general, the Turpentine Tree is a low-maintenance tree and is an ideal choice for gardens and parks with its strong, disease-resistant foliage and evergreen presence.

Syngonium erythrophyllum, Syngonium

Syngonium erythrophyllum

Syngonium
Family: Araceae
Origin: Central to South America
USDA Plant Hardiness MapVine or creeperShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Syngonium erythrophyllum is a low-maintenance and drought-tolerant vine that grows well in USDA zones 9-11.

It's an evergreen, fast-growing vine, usually grown as a houseplant but it's also a suitable garden subject for temperate regions. Syngonium erythrophyllum is best grown in partial shade or in semi-shade in rich, moist soil that's well-draining. It prefers regular water with light fertilization to promote lush foliage growth. Regular pruning and trellising is important to keep it in shape and prevent it from overgrowing its space.

In colder regions, consider planting Syngonium erythrophyllum in a pot, protected from winter chill. Place it indoors near a south-facing window, not too close to the window to prevent direct sunlight. Water it sparingly in winter, but don't allow it to dry out completely. To maintain its foliage color, place it in a bright location with indirect sunlight.

Its ornamental foliage makes Syngonium erythrophyllum a great addition to any garden or office. If a dark corner needs brightening, or a trellis needs greening, this is a perfect companion. It's a great choice as a gift for a passionate gardener or a beginner.

Syngonium macrophyllum (?), Arrowhead Vine

Syngonium macrophyllum (?)

Arrowhead Vine
Family: Araceae
Origin: Mexico
USDA Plant Hardiness MapVine or creeperFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite, off-white flowersOrnamental foliageIrritatingInvasive

This plant originally grows in Middle-America (Mexico) and belong to the family of Araceae. The plant grows well under humid circumstances: it prefers 50 per cent humidity. Syngonium also stands dry air.

Typical for this plant are the green leaves. The young leaves are oval without incisions. But when the plant gets older the leaves are shaped as an arrow and it splts it selves.

Because we start with this plant from cuttings it has immediately the typical arrow shape leaves. Plenty of light or semi-shade, cannot withstand strong sunlight. Ideal temperature 18-22, soil-warmth 25-30C. Avoid draughts. Keep the soil moist but do not allow the soil to dry out, give water once a week. Fertilize slightly once every fortnight, fertilize once every two months during the winter.

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. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.EdibleSubtropical, mature plant cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This is an oval to pyramidal shaped bush. Simple, alternate 3-5 leaves clustered at branch tips. At maturity it will reach seven feet. Inconspicuous, brown 1/2 in flowers. Red, 1 in football-shaped fruit, sweet, pleasant tasting. It fruits when only 1 ft tall. Miracle fruit produces small red fruits several times each year. The "miracle" is that if lemon or other sour fruit is eaten after the miracle fruit, the sour fruit tastes sweet. A natural chemical in the fruit masks the tongue's sour taste buds so that lemons taste like lemonade or lemon pie, or lemon candy. The fruit has a unique glyco protein that inhibits tastebuds' perception of sour taste for half an hour to a couple of hours. Enhances flavor of grapefruit, strawberries, and makes beer taste like a malta soft drink. Has been used as an appetite stimulant for persons taking chemotherapy medicines. Freezes whole for preservation. Prefers acid soil such as Canadian Peat Moss, minor nutrients. Seed to fruit in 2 to 5 years. Flower to fruit in 30 to 45 days The sweet sensation lasts from 20 minutes to 4 hours. Miracle fruit must have acid soil, is frost sensitive, and requires partial shade. It is an excellent choice for a containerized tree, which gives it the added benefit of mobility. Fill a container with a 50:50 mix of peat moss and perlite; this combination will create an acidic environment with good drainage.
