Carya illinoensis, Carya pecan, Pecan

Click to see full-size image Carya illinoensis, Carya pecan
Family: Juglandaceae
Pecan
Origin: Southern and Central United States
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

The pecan is a species of hickory. The word "Pecan" is from an Algonquian word, meaning a nut requiring a stone to crack. The nuts of the pecan are edible, with a rich, buttery flavor. They can be eaten fresh or used in cooking, particularly in sweet desserts but also in some savory dishes. Pecans are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats. Pecans first became known to Europeans in the 16th century. The Spaniards brought the pecan into Europe, Asia, and Africa beginning in the 16th century. Pecan trees are native to the United States, and writing about the pecan tree goes back to the nation founders. Pecans were one of the most recently domesticated major crops. They can be grown approximately from USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9, provided summers are also hot and humid. Pecan trees may live and bear edible nuts for more than three hundred years. They are mostly self-incompatible, because most cultivars, being clones derived from wild trees, show incomplete dichogamy. Generally, two or more trees of different cultivars must be present to pollenize each other.

Pecan grows principally in the lower Mississippi Valley. Within this region it extends westward to eastern Kansas and central Texas, eastward to western Mississippi and western Tennessee, and locally throughout northeastern and central Mexico.

It likes humid climate, well-drained loam soils which are not subject to prolonged flooding. However, it does appear on heavy textured soils, where it is limited to alluvial soils of recent origin. Pecan seedlings can survive short periods of flooding. Flowering and Fruiting- Flowering of pecan takes place from April through May. The species is monoecious; flowers are borne in staminate and pistillate catkins on the same tree. Pecan is anemophilous, and excessive rainfall during the flowering period may prevent pollination.

Casuarina equisetifolia, Casuarina muricata, Australian Pine, Ironwood, Horsetail, Iron Wood

Click to see full-size image Casuarina equisetifolia, Casuarina muricata
Family: Casuarinaceae
Australian Pine, Ironwood, Horsetail, Iron Wood
Origin: Malaysia, Southern Asia, Oceania and Australia
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Casuarina equisetifolia is the most widespread and well-known member of the family Casuarinaceae. Salt tolerant. Australian pine is fast-growing (5-10 feet per year), produces dense shade and a thick blanket of leaves and hard, pointed fruits, that completely covers the ground beneath it. Dense thickets of Australian Pine displace native dune and beach vegetation, including mangroves and many other resident, beach-adapted species. Because its roots are capable of producing nitrogen through microbial associations, Australian Pine can colonize nutrient-poor soils. Once established, it radically alters the light, temperature, and soil chemistry regimes of beach habitats, as it outcompetes and displaces native plant species and destroys habitat for native insects and other wildlife. Chemicals in the leaves of Australian Pine may inhibit the growth of other plants underneath it.

Cerbera odollam, Chiute, Chatthankai, Grey Milkwood, Sea Mango, Pong Pong Tree

Click to see full-size image
Cerbera x manghas hybrid grafted on Cerbera odollam which sprouted its green growth from underneath the graft.
 Cerbera odollam
Family: Apocynaceae
Chiute, Chatthankai, Grey Milkwood, Sea Mango, Pong Pong Tree
Origin: Southern Asia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantPoisonous or toxicUltra tropical, min. temperature 55FFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This is a small to medium-sized tree with dark foliage and showy, white flowers which are very fragrant. The whorled leaves are crowded near the ends of rather thickish branches with conspicuous leaf scars below. The fragrant white flowers have a yellow throat. The fruits are often twinned, ellipsoid and speckled green. The seed coat is thin and after falling, soon decays, exposing fibrous tissue. Seeds are extremely poisonous. This plant is similar to Plumeria, but the leaves are smaller and slightly rolled with a reddish midrib. Pong Pong is one of popular ornamental plants which has unique characteristic. Its seed looks like a ball which has beautiful skin. It can be grown in a small pot to show on office desk or everywhere you want for decoration. Moreover when it grows enough, it also has beautiful shape, with white flowers and many young green seeds. Growing from seed: Place the seed horizontally on top of the soil and dig it in 1/3 size. It should sprout within 3-4 weeks at temperature above 80-85F (Will take much longer at cooler temepature). You may grow this plant like a "Lucky Bean" and place the pot on your desktop or a window sill. In the ground it will grow in a small-size (8-10 ft) bushy tree.

Cerbera odollam is similar to Cerbera manghas and in some sources these names are considered as synonims.
