Syngonium macrophyllum (?)

Arrowhead Vine
Family: Araceae
Origin: Mexico
Vine or creeperFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageIrritatingInvasive

This plant originally grows in Middle-America (Mexico) and belong to the family of Araceae. The plant grows well under humid circumstances: it prefers 50 per cent humidity. Syngonium also stands dry air.

Typical for this plant are the green leaves. The young leaves are oval without incisions. But when the plant gets older the leaves are shaped as an arrow and it splts it selves.

Because we start with this plant from cuttings it has immediately the typical arrow shape leaves. Plenty of light or semi-shade, cannot withstand strong sunlight. Ideal temperature 18-22, soil-warmth 25-30C. Avoid draughts. Keep the soil moist but do not allow the soil to dry out, give water once a week. Fertilize slightly once every fortnight, fertilize once every two months during the winter.

Tabernaemontana pandacaqui, Banana Bush

Tabernaemontana pandacaqui

Banana Bush
Family: Apocynaceae
Origin: Australia, Melanesia, New Guinea
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantIrritating

Very cute low growing shrub native of the South Pacific, with Jasmine-like white pin-wheeled fragrant flowers, 5 petals with long tips fusing to form tube, regularly symmetrical.

The flowers are then followed by a pair of seeds that look like two bananas hanging in opposite directions, hence its common name. They start out red and then turn yellow when they ripen.

Variety Netty is a dwarf perennial shrub that grows only 3-4 ft tall. Its lush green foliage is a great backdrop for the abundant and continuous small white flowers that are pinwheel shaped.

Banana Bush works well as a mass planting, specimen shrub, or containerized accent piece. It is also drought tolerant once established and is a moderate grower. Ectra benefit is lack of pest problems associated with it. This plant is truly a winner.

In some sources Tabernaemontana pandacaqui is indicated as synonim of Tabernaemontana orientalis, however in our opinion they are different, with T. orientalis having pointed petals and T. pandacaqui rounded ones.

Tephrosia vogelii, Tephrosia vogellii

Muluku
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Origin: Africa
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersIrritatingAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Tephrosia is a perennial leguminous shrub indigenous to Uganda; in Lusoga and Luganda, it is known as muluku. It slow-growing, herbaceous, with soft, hairy-velvet leaves, pleasant to touch. Young leaves are silvery. The flower is about an inch across, and purple with white markings or white. The flowers are borne on compact racemes that bloom over a 3-6 week period. The plant is considered to be self-pollinated. The plant tolerates poor soils and harsh sites, attracts bees and butterflies.

Tephrosia is capable of fixing nitrogen from the air for improvement of soil fertility. The shrubs may be periodically pruned, applying immature plant parts to improve the soil. Leaves and roots of Tephrosia contain rotenone, a compound that is toxic to the root rats as well as fish and some insects. One new promising technology to control root rats is to plant Tephrosia as scattered plants in a field or as a barrier around fields. Tephrosia leaves can be used in insect control. Scientists at Kawanda have found the dried and powdered leaves of Tephrosia to be effective in the control of storage pests; in southern Tanzania, crushed fresh leaves are used in control of maize stalk borer. Tephrosia is also known as 'fish bean'; it is often used to paralyze fish, causing them to float to the surface.
