 Hevea brasiliensis
Family: Euphorbiaceae
Rubber Tree, Sharinga Tree
Origin: South America
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousPoisonous or toxic

In the wild, the rubber tree will grow to heights of 100 to 130 feet, and can live up to 100 years. Its most famous feature is the milky white sap, known as latex, which flows freely from the tree when a sliver of bark is removed.

The rubber tree is native to the tropical rainforest of the Amazon basin and the Guianas. It is widespread in the northern part of South America (Bolivia, Colombia, Peru) and was introduced into South-East Asia and to Africa.

Although poisonous, seeds can be eaten as a famine food after processing. Boiling removes the poison and releases the oil which can be utilised for illumination.

Iochroma australis, Iochroma australe, Dunalia australia, Acnistus australis, Blue Angel Trumpet, Mini Angel Trumpet

Click to see full-size image Iochroma australis, Iochroma australe, Dunalia australia, Acnistus australis
Family: Solanaceae
Blue Angel Trumpet, Mini Angel Trumpet
Origin: Argentina
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsPoisonous or toxicSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

An evergreen small tender shrub to 3-5 ft tall with miniature blue or white Angel Trumpet flowers. Throughout the spring and summer, the 2" flowers completely cover the bush, creating a huge ball of color. If you've ever seen one of these in full bloom, you know how breathtaking it is. Like most Iochroma species, this one is happiest in cooler weather(not recommended for very hot, dry areas). It can take a few degrees of frost, but it will probably zap the leaves and spring buds, which will delay flowering. Grows well indoors, provided that the air isn't too dry. Indoors, under lights, it flowers all throughout the year. The plant litters the ground with a gorgeous carpet of blue flower petals. Note that the leaves, flowers, and fruit contain a toxin.

See picture of blue flowers.
