Neomarica gracilis - African Iris

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersUnusual color

From the Iris family comes this Neomarica with sword shaped leaves and fragrant flowers. The delicate flowers last only a day but the plant continues to form new blooms for long periods of time during late spring months. Makes also an excellent houseplant. This is not a water Iris, be careful not to overwater. Neomarica gracilis is a type of walking Iris. Once the flower is spent, the stem that it was born on lays to the ground and from that a new plant is formed. For that reason it is said to be walking across your garden. You can divide plants and plant them in new locations.

Nephelium lappaceum - Rambutan (w/express shipping)

Click to see full-size image

Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterEdibleUltra tropical, min. temperature 55F

Rambutan - ruby red and covered with fine green-tipped hairs, the Rambutan is one of the most attractive fruits and also one of the most delicious when eaten at the peak. It is one of the rarest plants in tropical fruit tree collections.
Rambutan is a type of fruit which looks much akin to the lychee with a sweet/sour flavor. It is high in iron, vitamin C, copper and antioxidants and while it may be rarely found in your neck of the woods, it is highly prized in Malaysia, Thailand, Burma, and Sri Lanka and into India as well as eastward through Vietnam, the Phillippines and Indonesia. The name rambutan is derived from the Malay word rambut, which means hairy. Rambutan fruit is indeed hairy in appearance.
The outer peel is red and covered with malleable, fleshy spines. The interior flesh is white to pale pink with a flavor similar to grapes.
Rambutan trees like to stay moist. They thrive in temps from 71-86 degrees F. In fact, temperature and the proper humidity are the keys to growing a thriving rambutan.
