Raphionacme procumbens, or simply as Raphionacme, is a plant native to South Africa that grows to unusual heights. It's a caudex growing vine, and its tuberous root system helps support its impressive form. The flowers of Raphionacme are green.
For gardeners living in USDA Zone 9-11, Raphionacme is a highly attractive and unique flowering plant. It will require full sun, as well as moderate water, to achieve its vigorous growth. Because it is a vine, Gardeners should be sure to give plenty of room to allow the caudex to spread its tendrils and achieve its full potential. It may also be planted in a large pot or container, so long as the pot is brought indoors in the winter months.
Raphionacme is a stunning addition to any garden, and a great choice for those looking to plant something unique that will thrive in their climate. With the right care and attention, it can bring beauty and color for many years to come.
This vine is native to the mountain and coastal regions of Southwest Mexico and is also known as Purple Bell Vine. This, evergreen, low maintenance vine thrives in full sun to semi-shade and needs moderate amounts of water to thrive. This makes them a great choice for container gardening. They can be trained to climb up walls, trellises and other structures for a unique addition to any garden.
The Rhodochiton atrosanguineum has slow to medium growth, and its leaves and stems are covered in a velvety texture. Its leaves are often purple in color and its flowers are bell or funnel shaped and have an unusual black exterior with a bright purplish-pink interior, which gives it its common name "Purple Bell Vine". Other cultivars which are commonly grown, include the bright pink "Fuchsia" and the dark red "Maroon".
In warm climates, Rhodochiton atrosanguineum will bloom for most of the year but can be kept in bloom if kept in a cool, semi-shaded spot. In colder regions it can be grown as a perennial in a container and brought indoors during the coldest months. For best results, it should be grown in a light, well-draining potting mix and watered regularly but not left in soggy soil. Pruning should also be done to encourage growth and control size.
If grown in cooler areas, Rhodochiton atrosanguineum can survive the winter in pots or containers; although this should be done with care and caution. The pot should be moved out of freezing temperatures to prevent the roots from freezing and the foliage should be covered in a blanket to protect it from cold winds. The soil should not be allowed to completely dry out, but water should be reduced in winter. The Purple Bell Vine should be brought back inside when night temperatures drop below 35-40F. With appropriate care and conditions, it makes a dramatic and elegant addition to any home garden.
Rhytidophyllum tomentosum, or Hairy Gesneria, is a plant with a height of 5 to 10 feet. It is a distinct choice, flaunting a unique light yellow flower with darker dots that spread out over a wide mouth. The pleasant fragrance makes this plant an attractive addition to any yard, while its unusual color makes it stand out among traditional green shrubs.
This plant thrivies in USDA Zones 9-11. It appreciates semi-shade from direct sunlight and needs a moderate amount of regular watering to be happy. Generally, it does best with a light watering of about 1-2 inches of water per week during hot summer months. If the environment is too cold for the plant, then it is best to grow it in a pot and bring it inside during freezes. This prevents frost damages, therefore, allowing the plant to thrive.
Additionally, fertilizing Rhytidophyllum tomentosum is important to ensure it grows healthy and vibrant. During the summer it should be fertilized twice a month with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Once fall and winter arrive, the plant should be fertilized once every 1-2 months. Do not over-fertilize, as this could cause damage to the roots.
Finally, it is also important to regularly prune the shrub to help it keep a neat, tidy shape. Remove any dead, diseased, or damaged branches as soon as possible to maintain the health of the plant. Regular pruning and trimming will also promote flower and foliage growth.
Rhytidophyllum tomentosum is a beautiful and unusual bush, making it a great choice to add to any garden. With the right care and maintenance, it will bring life and a unique charm to any yard.
