Anguloa sp., Tulip Orchid
Anguloa ruckeri

Anguloa sp.

Tulip Orchid
Family: Orchidaceae
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Tulip Orchids are rather large terrestrial and sometimes epiphytic plants with fleshy pseudobulbs longer than 20 cm. The long, lanceolate and plicate leaves of a full-grown Anguloa can be more than 1 m long. Two to four leaves grow from the base of each pseudobulb. The leaves are deciduous, and are shed at the start of each new growth.

The flowers of these orchids have a strong scent of cinnamon.

Anguloa clowesii grows in the mountains with very moist conditions at the roots. There is a dry season, and this coincides with the dropping of their deciduous leaves. The flowers emerge at the base of the newest growths in late winter to early summer.

Anguloa virginalis is a Anguloa endemic to Colombia.

Annona cherimola x Annona squamosa, Atemoya

Annona cherimola x Annona squamosa

Atemoya
Family: Annonaceae
Origin: West Tropical Africa
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Atemoyas are small-to-medium-size trees growing to about twenty-five to thirty feet at maturity with about the same spread. Flowers are produced along with new growth in the spring following a winter dormancy period, and the fruit usually begin maturing in late August through the end of October. Atemoyas look very similar in some cases to sugar apples, except they have a smoother skin and the individual segments aren't quite as obvious. Most atemoyas have fewer seeds, too, than sugar apples, which makes them a lot easier to eat as a fresh fruit.

Annona squamosa Kampong Mauve

Annona squamosa

Sugar Apple, Custard Apple, Sweetsop-Anon, Sweetsop, Atis, Sitafal, Seetha Payam, Araticum, Sharifa
Family: Annonaceae
Origin: Tropical America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterFragrantDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Very highly regarded in tropical and subtropical areas. Fruits with sweet custard-like pulp are from 3 to 5 inches in diameter with a lumpy green skin and upon maturity the fruit has a bluish or white blush. Some varieties are developed that have a red blush or red skin which are much more attractive. At maturity fruits have a custard like white pulp with small black seeds and the sweet flesh is eaten fresh or used for milkshakes and ice creams. Sugar apples make great container plants, too, so if you don't have much space try growing these in a 10 or 15 gallon tub, and they will still reward you with a number of delicious fruit. Older trees may continue fruiting into January during warm winter. Trees reach full dormancy during cold winters. Varieties: Thai-Lessard, Kampong Mauve.
