Click to see full-size image Tradescantia zebrina, Zebrina pendula
Family: Commelinaceae
Wandering Jew
Origin: Tropical America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersSeaside, salt tolerant plant

The Zebrina is a relatively common house plant from Tropical Americas. It is not as robust as the similar looking Tradescantia fluminensis. The species name "pendula" means "hanging".It grows outside in summer if you have a shaded, humid location in the garden. Avoid touching the watery sap of the Zebrina, since it can be a cause of skin inflammation. The flowers are inconspicuous white to pink.

The Zebrina grows rapidly if given enough water and fertilizer. The variety 'Quadricolor' has a lot of purple, but needs more sun to keep its color intensity. Frost Tolerance: Hardy to 32F. No direct sun, keep in a humid area, light shade, needs a lot of light indoor. Needs regular watering. Growth Habits: Groundcover, 6-12in tall.

Propagation: Cuttings that root easily in water.

Family: Trapaceae
Water Chestnut
Origin: Europe and Asia
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunBog or aquaticInvasiveEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Water chestnut features a rosette of floating leaves. Leaves are triangular in shape and strongly toothed. Small four-petaled flowers give way to the nut-like fruit. It forms dense floating mats, often three layers deep, that restrict light availability, reduce the oxygen content, and displace other emergent and floating vegetation. It is frequently cultivated in Asia and elsewhere where the fruit is eaten. Aquarium Plant.

Trevesia burckii, Snow Flake Tree, Ghost's Foot

Click to see full-size image Trevesia burckii
Family: Araliaceae
Snow Flake Tree, Ghost's Foot
Origin: Sumatra to Borneo
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Named for Enrichetta Treves de Bonfili, of Padua, 19th century patron of botanical research.

Leaves of all the species are palmately lobed, but in some the lobes are narrowed to form false petiolules, and the lamina is expanded again towards the base of the leaf. In Trevesia burckii these leaves are the normal adult state, while in another species (Trevesia palmata) the leaf dissection is variable both between and within individual plants. Young T. burckii seedlings have ovate leaves.

The plant reaches in nature a size of up to 15-20" and prefers the shaded environment of a mountain rainforest. It is a hardy indoor plant that can tolerate a very wide range of home environments from full sunshine to dark corners.
