Adenocalymna comosum, Bignonia comosa, Yellow Trumpet Vine

Click to see full-size image
Adenocalymna comosum, Bignonia comosa
Family: Bignoniaceae
Yellow Trumpet Vine
Origin: South America
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowers

The North-east-Brazilian Liana. The euphilic flowers of plants in the family Bignoniaceae display a spectrum of adaptive radiations, involving different pollinator groups. Besides melittophily (adaptation to pollination by medium - to large-sized bees), which predominates, flowers are pollinated by hawkmoths and bats.

Each individual plant had a single inflorescence, which extends above the foliage, in the form of a simple, terminal, vertically orientated, many-flowered raceme on a long, bracteose peduncle. The inflorescence structure, with only one or two flowers open at a given time (in the latter case on the same node), indicates continuous flowering over at least several weeks, thus displaying a 'steady state' pattern . The flowers, on a stout pedicel (20 mm long), have a 5-dentate tubular calyx. The calyx, the sub-tending bracts and the two prophylls, bear groups of extra floral nectaries (single peltate trichomes). The yellow-colored corolla, measuring 7 mm in length, has a 28mm long and 4mm-wide basal tube that widens rather abruptly into a campanulate limb.

Adonidia merrillii, Veitchia merrilli, Christmas Palm

Click to see full-size image
Adonidia merrillii, Veitchia merrilli
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Christmas Palm
Origin: Philippines
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterPalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Adonidia comes from Adonis, the handsome sun god of the ancient Greeks. This is neat looking, compact palm that resembles a dwarf version of the royal palm (Roystonea regia) which it matches in beauty. Christmas palm grows to an overall height of only about 16 ft. By late fall fruit are beginning to ripen and by late December are bright and brilliant red - like ornaments on a Christmas palm! It is a popular landscaping item in the capital of Philippines, which inspires another popular name, the Manila palm.

Christmas palm is moderately salt tolerant. Prefers full sun but will take some shade.

Small stature makes it perfect for use in small scale plantings. It is sometimes closely planted in groups of two or three.

Good specimen container plant. The formal symmetry of Christmas palm is nicely showcased when it is grown in a container. Indoors or out this is a glamourous container plant that can maintain its looks despite hardship and neglect.

Aechmea sp., Bromeliad

Click to see full-size image
Aechmea sp.
Family: Bromeliaceae
Subfamily: Bromelioideae
Bromeliad
Origin: Tropical America
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterPink flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

The Aechmea is very diversified, hardy, extremely popular, and very easily cultivated in the bromeliad family group. They range in sizes from a very tiny 6 inches, to more than 10 feet in height and 6 feet in diameter. Their foliage colors vary from lime green, yellow, red, burgundy, and black, and incorporates many patterns, spots, stripes, bands, silvering, shadings, and blotches. These patterns often vary form the top of the leaf to the bottom of it. The Aechmea family has large inflorescence and brightly colored, long lasting bracts that holds the magnitude of tiny flowers. Often the colorful berry-like fruits mature for a long time on the flower spike. It's a very healthy, cold and rot resistant plant to grow outdoors fixed in trees, walls, or, in pots in an orchid mix.

Adult plants need a sunny position to become red in the blooming period. In a luminous shade it flowers, but the leaves remain green. The rose bracts persist a long time, and if flowers are pollinated black pointed fruits will appear as shown in the picture. It's curious because, when the plant grows in very shaded locations the leaves become very long, to the point to seem a completely different plant and very elegant indeed, with no weak aspects. However, if it is gradually moved to full sun it blooms and the leaves become red. See Bromeliad page.
