 Aphelandra hartwegiana
Family: Acanthaceae
Yellow Aphelandra
Origin: Panama and Colombia
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Yellow flowers emerge out of long orange stalks in the fall time. Pretty and unusual! A tall, shrubby perennial with very long (over 15″) terminal inflorescences that are very unique and showy, with yellow flowers protruding from orange calyces in succession over many days. The leaves can get at least 14″ long, and in bright light the midvein and petiole can take on a reddish hue. Grows nicely in full sun in south Florida, but it will also tolerate quite shady conditions. It can get leggy and is best pruned regularly to help maintain a branching, dense form - give it a good trim around July. It is otherwise a very easy, undemanding and rewarding plant.

Aphelandra scabra, Aphelandra

Click to see full-size image Aphelandra scabra
Family: Acanthaceae
Aphelandra
Origin: Southern Mexico to Northern South America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Aphelandra scabra is a shrub species that ranges from Southern Mexico to Northern South America and the West Indies. It is found mainly in seasonally dry forests along the Northern Pacific slope but it can also be found in some moist to wet forests. A. scabra is normally around 5 ft tall but it can grow taller. The leaves are simple, oppositely arranged on the stalk, and they are elliptical and entire with smooth or wavy margins.

The flowers of this plant can be red, pink, or purple red, up to 2 inch long, and tubular. They are 2-lipped, fuzzy and they bloom for one day before wilting. The A. scabra inflorescence is candle-like and the prepubescent flower spikes can grow up to 6 inch in height. The inflorescence has overlapping green bracts that are tinged with yellow and orange and they have extrafloral nectaries. Each day only one or two flowers open along the inflorescence to prevent self-pollination. The flowers have four fertile stamens and a slender stigma that is tucked into the upper lip of the flower. The flowers are hummingbird pollinated and the species protects its nectar behind a petal lip. When a visiting hummingbird arrives to feed on the nectar, the petal lip releases pollen down onto the head of the bird and it is carried away to pollinate another plant. The seed capsules are club-shaped,1 inch long capsules, and they contain four dark brown seeds. The seeds are flattened and irregular and they are dispersed ballistically, meaning they "explode". The fruit seed capsule splits along the sutures, which allow the fruit wall to change its shape rapidly and throw the seeds short distances.

Origin: Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama
Large shrub 5-10 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The genus Aphelandra has about 200 species of shrubs or herbs native to tropical America. The name is from Greek apheles, solitary, and aner, a male, referring to the single-celled anthers. A very tropical looking tender perennial shrub, up to 10 feet tall (3 m), or more. The rose-red tubular flowers are borne in orange-red bracts on 8 inch long spikes - very unusual color match. The showy spikes are borne terminally, many together. Can be grown outdoors in warm climates. Fleshy leaves get cold damaged with temperatures 40-45F, but the plant recovers easily.

Aphelandra tetragona, Aphelandra cristata, Red Aphelandra

Click to see full-size image Aphelandra tetragona, Aphelandra cristata
Family: Acanthaceae
Red Aphelandra
Origin: South America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowers

These attractive tender perennials and shrubs are grown for their ornamental foliage and interesting flower spikes and require high humidity and warm temperatures to flower. The color of the flowers is orange-scarlet to scarlet. These plants may be grown outdoors in mild climates, in humus-rich soil; otherwise, they need to be grown in homes or greenhouses. When grown indoors, well-drained pots that are filled with equal parts of loam and peat and a generous amount of sand should be used. They should be placed in bright, indirect light out of drafts. Water must be applied with care. Waterlogged, or very dry soil will make the leaves fall. They should be fed with liquid fertilizer as the flowers form. When they've finished blooming, less water is needed. Do not pinch off the tips of the shoots, the idea is to produce one stem with one large spike of flowers. Propagation by cuttings. In the spring, side shoots can be removed, or a piece of the old branch can be inserted in sand in a propagating case in the greenhouse. When they have grown roots, they are placed on the open benches for a few days and then potted. Seeds may also be sown in pots of sandy peat and loam in the spring.
