This shrub is one of three members of the genus, Acokanthera. It belongs to the same family as many popular sub-tropical, ornamental plants such as frangipani, allamanda and oleander, as well as the impala lily and num-num. This family is characterized by having sweetly scented flowers, and sticky, milky sap which is often poisonous. The Bushman's poison is a hardy drought and frost resistant evergreen shrub. It tolerates full sun but prefers shade. It also does well as a container plant.

Different Aconitum species (and their varieties) scattered across temperate regions of globe.

These are handsome plants, the tall, erect stem being crowned by racemes of large and eye-catching blue, purple, white, yellow or pink zygomorphic flowers. Aconitum is grown in gardens for its attractive spike like inflorescences and showy flowers.

All Aconitum plants contain poisonous alkaloids that can, in sufficient quantity, be deadly. Man has used Aconitum as a medicine and poison for thousands of years. Outside Europe it was widely used for its medical properties.

Acorus gramineus variegatus

Sweet Flag
Family: Acoraceae
Origin: Japan
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

The plants are evergreen in warmer climates, but they will die back to ground level in colder climates. Although they are water lovers, this species can take quite a bit of drought. I have seen this plant used as an accent in dry rock gardens.

Acrocarpus fraxinifolius, Pink Cedar, Balangi, Kurungatti

Acrocarpus fraxinifolius

Pink Cedar, Balangi, Kurungatti
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Origin: South Asia
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This tree is monospecific (only one in the genus) that is native to the mountain rainforests along the Himalayas. It is a fast growing large deciduous tree that can have a buttressed base with a straight trunk of a light gray colored bark and spreading horizontal stems that form a rounded crown. It has bipinnately compound leaves that are a bright reddish pink color when first emerging, then a pinkish yellow and finally a lime green color before maturing, giving the tree a multicolored look at the branch tips much of the spring and summer. In the early spring, just before or as the tree first leafs out, appear the many scarlet-red flowers in 3 to 6 inch long dense racemes near the branch tips, giving inflorescence a bit of a bottlebrush look.

Plant in full sun and irrigate deeply regularly to occasionally. Hardiness - it is tolerant to nighttime dips to at least 28° F. As the specific epithet implies, this plant looks similar to an Ash (in the genus Fraxinus) and other common names include Australian Ash, Indian Ash, Kenya Coffeeshade, Mundani, Red Cedar and Shingle Tree.

Native to Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand.

The fast-growing, climbing vine is very hardy, and is capable of surviving slow temperature drops to -34 C (-30 F), although young shoots can be vulnerable to frost in the spring. This vine needs a strong (vines are heavy) support structure on which to grow such as a trellis, arbor, patio overhead, fence or wall.
