Zanthoxylum beecheyanum

Chinese Pepper Tree
Family: Rutaceae
Origin: Estern Asia
Can be used for bonsaiSmall plant 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterRed, crimson, vinous flowersFragrantDeciduous plant

Zanthoxylum beecheyanum, commonly known as Chinese Pepper Tree, is a deciduous plant native to Eastern Asia. It is most often grown as a small shrub, typically reaching 2-5 feet in height. This plant prefers full sun, although it also accepts semi-shade. It is hardy in USDA Zones 9-11.

In the spring, this plant blooms red, crimson, or vinous flowers. These flowers are highly fragrant, and appear in clusters. Once these flowers have bloomed, green fruits appear and ripen in fall, just as the leaves begin to change colors. The fruits of Chinese Pepper Tree are bush-like, resembling small peppercorns.

These plants are relatively easy to care for. They prefer regular water, especially during the hot and dry periods of summer and the cooler months of winter. Alternatively, they can be grown in pots and moved around to locations that suit the climate, making them useful in areas where winters can be too severe. Be sure to plant them in soil that drains well, as these plants are not tolerant to soggy roots. In areas with cooler winters, these plants can be grown both indoors and outdoors, and will produce beautiful foliage indoors in the colder months of winter.

Overall, Chinese Pepper Tree is an easy to maintain, bold shrub with a unique aroma and an air of oriental flair that brings a unique personality to your garden. With the right balance of sun, water, and nutrients, you can enjoy beautiful flowers and fruits from this spectacular and understated specimen.

Schlechter soldier's orchid, Centipede Grass Orchid
Family: Orchidaceae
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite, off-white flowersDeciduous plantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Z. strateumatica, has become naturalized in southern Florida after being introduced into the area as an adventive with Centipede Grass from China (this is where the Florida nickname "Centipede Grass Orchid" came from for this species.) Looks too nice to be just a weed! It emerges in winter, blooming in late December and January; within a few weeks, the plants vanish. The following year, they may return, and from the same root a new plant will grow next to the previous one.

This ginger has tall, erect stems with narrow leaves, this basal bloomer produces green cones that turn red when mature. It is a herbaceous perennial with upright stems and narrow medium green leaves arranged in two ranks on each stem. Ginger grows from an aromatic tuberlike rhizome (underground stem) which is warty and branched. The inflorescence grows on a separate stem from the foliage stem, and forms a dense spike. The bracts are green with translucent margins and the small flowers are yellow green with purple lips and cream colored blotches. Most of edible gingers in cultivation are sterile cultivars grown for the edible rhizome, and the flower is rarely seen. Ginger is often grown in a container and brought indoors in winter when water and light are reduced and the plant is allowed to "rest." Common cooking gingers are rarely found in garden centers as potted plants because they do not have much ornamental value. Plant this ginger in the garden to produce your own fresh ginger.
