Tabebuia is a genus containing around 100 species, many widely used in hot-weather gardens everywhere. T. impetiginosa is a small tree which may be leafless when in flower. The bright rose-pink to light purple flowers may totally cover the tree in spring. A good choice for small yards or potting culture.

Tabernaemontana africana, Samoan Gardenia

Tabernaemontana africana

Samoan Gardenia
Family: Apocynaceae
Origin: Tropical West Africa, Senegal to Ghana
Large shrub 5-10 ftRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsUltra tropical, min. temperature 55F

It is a new plant introduction and is hard to find. The intoxicating sweet fragrant blossoms of pinwheel shape are creamy white.The plant blooms almost all year and has a wonderful spicy fragrance that carries a good distance both day and night. Many other white blooming plants are only fragrant at night. Blooming can be heavy or light depending on the bloom cycle. Flowers with 5 petals average 4 inches across and stand out nicely against the foliage, which is elliptic in shape. They are a pinwheeled shaped work of art. The foliage is very beautiful as well as its dark green shiny leaves. The semi-glossy leaves average 6 inches in length. This shrub likes acid soil conditions best. Treat it like a gardenia - plant it at least 5 to 6 feet away from any concrete or container is even better. It does well in filtered light locations or in morning sun. Although it's slow growing, it is capable of reaching 15 feet. A good supply of moisture and well-drained soil are the must. Use mulch around the plant to retain moisture, but keep the mulch 1 to 2 inches from the trunk so the bark will not rot.

This species very often mis-called as Tabernaemontana holstii, but according to taxonomic revision of Dr. Leeuwenberger (1988), T. holstii is actually a synonym of T. pachysiphon, close related species with larger leaves. The name T. holstii has been misused for the T. africana species for a long time. The common name Samoan Gardenia was traditionally used for the plant, so we leave it here as a popular name.

DWARF culivar Compacta from Hawaii - very bushy and compact, not leggy, grows as a bush unlike regular T. africana that grows into a small tree.

Tabernaemontana australis, Australian Pinweel

Tabernaemontana australis

Australian Pinweel
Family: Apocynaceae
Origin: Australia
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

With its fragrant white flowers of a beautiful shape and very dark green waxy leaves, elongated and pointed, this plant is an amazing addition to a rare fragrant plant collection.

Slow growing, and low growing bush which makes it very valuable for landscape understory. It can be trimmed and maintained in small size 3-4 ft; however if you let it go it will grow into very attractive, dense and bushy specimen up to 5-6 ft tall. Great specimen, accent plant, and container plant.

This rare species of Tabernaemontana is often confused with T. divaricata (commonly known as Pinwheel Jasmine) and T. orientalis (Banana Bush). However this Australian relative of Pinwheen Jasmine has its own distinctive features, and flowers look more like T. africana, although smaller size (1" in diameter).

Tabernaemontana crassa occurs in humid tropical Africa, from Sierra Leone east to the Central African Republic and eastern DR Congo, and southwards to northern Angola. It has large waxy leaves and pinwheel-shaped large fragrant flowers.

Tabernaemontana crassa contains a large number of indole alkaloids with interesting pharmacological activities. The alkaloid content is similar to that of Tabernaemontana pachysiphon, another medicinally important species. In West Africa pulped leaves and latex from the stem and bark of Tabernaemontana crassa have several uses, the main ones being as a local anaesthetic, e.g. to treat dislocated bones or headache, for the treatment of wounds, sores, abscesses and furuncles, and to treat dermal infections such as filaria, ringworm and fungal infections. The latex is also applied as a haemostatic, as it forms a film over the wound. It is taken internally as an anthelmintic. Powdered bark is traded internationally in herbal medicine shops.
