 Wrightia sp.
Family: Apocynaceae
Thai Cherry Wrightia
Origin: Thailand
Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This plant is a woody shrub with vining habit. Can be trained into a nice small tree or trimmed into a shrub, but the best way is to let it go: the twisting branches form weird shapes. Slow growing plant, makes compact forms. Leaves are large to compare with other fragrant wrightias, 3-4" long and 2" wide and remind apple tree leaves. Fragrant flowers resemble cherry flowers. The plant blooms profusely on and off during spring and summer. Nice landscape plant due to its compact form. Relatively cold tolerant, will stand short period of cool weather.

x Fatshedera lizei, Fatshedera, Ivy Tree

Click to see full-size image x Fatshedera lizei
Family: Araliaceae
Fatshedera, Ivy Tree
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The Ivy Tree is an usual plant in that it's the result of a cross between two genera, the Hedera (English ivy) and Fatsia japonica. The resulting hybrid has the interesting and lovely leaf shape of the Fatsia, which can be seen growing along the roadsides throughout the tropical world, and the cultural requirements and basic climbing habit of its ivy parent. As a shrub, Fatshedera can grow up to 1.2 m tall, above which the weight of the fairly weak branches makes them tend to bend over. It can however also be tied to a support and grow into a vine up to 34 m tall; unlike Hedera, it does not readily climb without assistance.

It is grown both as a garden plant outdoors, and as a houseplant indoors, where its tolerance of shady conditions is valued.

Xanthorrhoea sp., Grass Tree

Click to see full-size image
Xanthorrhoea australis
 Xanthorrhoea sp.
Family: Xanthorrhoeaceae
Grass Tree
Origin: Australia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The name of genus Xanthorrhoea comes from the Greek Xanthos for yellow and rheo meaning flow, referring to a yellow resin exuded from the trunk of some species of Xanthorrhoea.

The Xanthorrhoea genus is part of the Xanthorrhoeaceae family, which is made up of small trees or perennials with woody stems. The leaves are tough and linear, and the flowers are radially symmetrical, bisexual, and spike-like.

Commonly called Grass Trees, Xanthorrhoea plants are also known as Balga Grass to the Australian aborigines, which is their word for black boy. The Aborigines probably called these plants balga because after a wild fire, the bottom leaves burn away revealing a singed black trunk with long green reed-like leaves extending from the top of the trunk giving the appearance of black figures. All species of Xanthorrhoea are very slow growing, but they are also very long lived - up to 600 years! Long straight spears of white blossoms extend from the top of the tree especially in the year following wild fires.

The glassy resin which exudes from the trunks was previously used in varnish and other products. The flakes of resin were collected from around the base of the stem, heated and rolled into balls.The flowering spikes of the grass tree were soaked in water to make a sweet drink, fresh or slightly fermented. The soft bases of the young leaves were eaten. Tough leaves were used as knives. Europeans harvested the gum to make varnishes and lacquers.

Generally frost tolerant, all Xanthorrhoea require well-drained soil and a sunny location because they are prone to root rot. They can be grown very successfully in pots.
