Annona cherimola x Annona squamosa, Atemoya

Annona cherimola x Annona squamosa

Atemoya
Family: Annonaceae
Origin: West Tropical Africa
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Atemoyas are small-to-medium-size trees growing to about twenty-five to thirty feet at maturity with about the same spread. Flowers are produced along with new growth in the spring following a winter dormancy period, and the fruit usually begin maturing in late August through the end of October. Atemoyas look very similar in some cases to sugar apples, except they have a smoother skin and the individual segments aren't quite as obvious. Most atemoyas have fewer seeds, too, than sugar apples, which makes them a lot easier to eat as a fresh fruit. Read more about this fruit tree.

Antigonon leptopus

Mexican Coral Vine, Coral Creeper, Honolulu Creeper, Corallita, Chinese Love Vine
Family: Polygonaceae
Origin: Mexico, Central America
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsInvasiveSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Naturalised in many parts of India. It is a vigorous perennial climber, known for its dense green foliage and small delicate lantern shaped flower in long trailing lovely sprays. The plant has large tuberous roots and several ascending branches of 30-40 feet length. It flowers in all seasons except for a short period during monsoon. The flowers are white or in attractive shades of red and pink. The creepers grow well over arbors, pergolas, and walls. Regular pruning keeps the plant in good shape. Too much food causes vigorous vegetative growth at the expense of flowering. Propagation can be done by seeds, layers, stem cuttings or from division of the roots.

Araucaria araucana, Araucaria imbricata

Monkey Puzzle Tree, Chilean Pine
Family: Araucariaceae
Origin: South America
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageThorny or spinySeaside, salt tolerant plant

Among the most spectacular are forests of pure Araucaria Araucaria araucana, the hardiest of the genus, is a large, bizarre-looking evergreen, 60-70ft. tall and 30 to 35 feet wide, though the tallest specimens in its native haunts have been measured at over 150 ft. It forms a loose, symmetrical, see-through crown, pyramidal in youth, eventually with a rounded or flattish top. The scale-like leaves are dark green, stiff, sharp-pointed and densely arranged on upwardly-sweeping branches, looking more reptilian than coniferous in character. Because of this it comes to know surprise to most people that this species is estimated to be around 60 million years old, based upon fossil record known today.

Preferring well-drained, volcanic soil, this species is surprisingly tolerant of many soil types. It is very tolerant of maritime exposures, salt-laden winds, and thrives in cool, mild climates. It dislikes hot-dry soils and atmospheric pollution.
