Adansonia za, or Baobab, is an imposing ethnomedical plant native to Madagascar with its full sun, moderate water requirements, and unusual color. This big tree can grow taller than 20 ft, producing deciduous foliage and stunning flowers that vary in color from crimson to vinous, and yellow to orange. It is a delightfully hardy plant that not only emits a unique beauty in the garden, but is also attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.

The blooms can be followed by an edible fruit that tastes delicately sweet and acidic. The fruit also carries a wealth of health benefits, containing vitamins A, C, and E, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, and folate. An average Baobab fruit tree can yield an estimated 150-200 fruits in a single year.

Baobab can be grown in USDA Zones 9-11, and since the tree is deciduous, it can withstand some cold temperatures, making it a great option for gardens in cooler climates. When growing a Baobab in a pot, it is important to use a well draining potting mix, as the tree does not like to stay wet. Keep the pot in a sheltered spot and bring it indoors during frosty winter nights. Water the tree regularly, especially during the hotter summer months. An occasional dose of fertilizer will also help promote healthy growth.

Origin: Arabia and East Africa
CaudexCan be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ft tallFull sunModerate waterPink flowersWhite, off-white flowersRed, crimson, vinous flowersIrritatingDeciduous plantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Growing to a height of about 4-5ft, this succulent plant is a member of the same family as Plumeria. Its swollen, often twisted trunk is pale gray. The leaves are glossy and club-shaped, and the flowers, which appear almost continuously, are trumpet-shaped, and range from white and bright pink to crimson red. It exudes a highly toxic sap which in some places is used as a poison for arrows. Adenium is not generally grown in moist tropical gardens but is often seen as a decorative pot plant; it may also be used in rock gardens. It needs full sun and a well-drained potting mixture. Exotic multi-color varieties can be grafted on the same plant. See other exotic species of Adenium, photo gallery of exotic varieties and Thai Adeniums - milti-colored, multi-grafted.
