Tillandsia sp.

Tillandsia
Family: Bromeliaceae
Subfamily: Tillandsioideae
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Tillandsias, called by some the world's most unusual airplants, are a delightful addition to any greenhouse. They are easy to care for, exotic to look at, and interesting to study. Tillandsias are air plants, even more so than other bromeliads and much like vandaceous orchids.Tillandsia's are without doubt one of the worlds most amazing group of plants. Tillandsias have developed the ability to take all their food and water through specially designed cells on their leaves and therefore can exist without any roots for ever. Roots are used by most species to attach themselves and nothing more. Tillandsias can grow in places no other plants can survive including electrical cable on power lines. They prefer light airy conditions and daily misting in areas of low humidity. They must be brought into protection from any freeze, but a light frost will not usually damage them. The greener and softer varieties like a little more water and shade. Any can be grown in your sunniest indoor area. Enjoy your tillandsia plant for years of blooming and pupping with good light, fresh air, and adequate but not overabundant watering, particularly in cooler weather.

Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

An attractive flowering tree whose natural range is Brazil and the mountain forests of Bolivia and which is now widely planted from the Mediterranean region to the tropics. Tipuana tipu is a large, spreading evergreen tree to 50-60 ft. Bark red-brown; trunk fissured and flaking with age, bark on the branches gray and cracked, sap from the cut branches red and sticky. Blooming time is in summer (June-August). The tree is drought resistant and prefers sunny locations. Trees tolerate a wide variety of soils, but are shallow rooted therefore young plants should be staked and watered until roots are established. Occasional pruning and deep watering is recommended, once the hardy plants are established. The plant, although considered subtropical, is surprisingly hardy to at least light frosts.
