Alocasia Tiny Dancers

Click to see full-size image

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Alocasia Tiny Dancers is an unusual aroid that only grows about 14" tall with bright green stems and leaves that have a slightly cupped form. Its growth habit, however, gives the appearance of a full bushy plant as the stems emerge at different times, giving it a tiered effect. One of the best houseplants for its ease of care. Keep it moist, go light on the fertilizer and grow in a partially sunlit window if it is an indoor houseplant. It also makes an ideal plant for an outdoor patio due to its unique form.

Alpinia purpurata - Dwarf Red Cone Ginger

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowers

One of the most desirable symbols of Tropics, Alpinia purpurata, red ginger, also called ostrich plume and pink cone ginger, are native Malaysian plants with showy flowers on long brightly colored red bracts. They look like the bloom, but the true flower is the small white flower on top. Red Ginger grows in Hawaii, and many Central American nations, including Belize. It is also found in Samoa, where it is the national flower, and is locally called "teuila." It prefers partial shade and moist humid conditions, although it can tolerate full sun in some climates. It tends to like to be well watered and not left to dry out. Ginger can also be grown as a houseplant and its cut flowers can be used in arrangements.

Burbidgea schizocheila - Voodoo Flame Ginger

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterModerate waterYellow/orange flowers

A dwarf ginger that is hard to find, but well worth it. Intermittently throughout the year, bright golden-orange cones will appear above the glossy dark green, maroon-backed leaves. Individual flowers will open and last for a period of about two weeks during each bloom cycle. Has a very upright growth habit. An excellent indoor plant, it should be kept out of direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves, and should be kept in a container even outdoors, as they are very cold-tender and must be brought inside in the fall. When repotting, take care that only the roots are burried in the soil or potting medium, as it is a bit of an epiphyte (air plant) and the rhyzome must remain above ground level.

Vigorous full size plant with high yield and strong uniformity. Grown throughout Central Mexico, these papayas are 3 to 5 pounds in weight and the shape of an elongated melon. Their skin is green when unripe but turns yellow to orange with a few freckles once they become mature. They are wonderfully soft and juicy, and have a salmon pink or red flesh that is very sweet with a slightly perfumed, fruity flavor. Cut them in half lengthwise, scoop out the small, shiny, gelatinous black seeds from the center and discard them. Delicious and irresistible with a sprinkle of fresh lemon or lime juice.

Cissus discolor, native to Java and Cambodia, is a fast growing, exotic looking, trailing vine, which is sometimes called Tapestry Vine or Rex Begonia Vine. It is not a begonia, but the medium sized lance shaped leaves have the bright colors of Rex Begonia leaves. The leaves are dark green with silver and purple blotches. It makes a gorgeous hanging basket. Thanks to its large, striking leaves and climbing growth, Cissus discolor has become a popular houseplant. The leaves and stems produce a natural secretion, tiny opaque dots, called cystolyths. Grow this Cissus in a hanging basket or let it climb up a trellis.

This Black colocasia is a must for black plant fanatics. It has large matte black, heart shaped leaves on black/purple leaf stalks. As with most elephant ears, moist soil and high nutrition are the keys to great specimens. In shade leaves turn dark green. Once moved to bright sun, they turn back to black. In cooler subtropical climates leaves die back and the plant emerges from a rhizome in spring.

Colocasia esculenta Jacks Giant

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticUnusual colorOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

This astonishing elephant ear is well-named, it really does look like something that would grow for the giant! The foliage is absolutely massive, many feet long and wide, with a glossy texture, prominent ribbing, and a rich blue-green cast that lightens to chartreuse around the edges. Jack's Giant is a triploid, meaning it has three times the chromosomal power of most other elephant ears. And you will see the power in your garden!
Jack's Giant is native to East Asia and India, and certainly lends a big splash of tropical flair to any garden setting. Reaching at least 7 feet tall and 5 to 8 feet wide, it thrives in moist to boggy or even wet soils, preferring those that are well enriched with organic matter. In wintertime, however, it needs much drier conditions to keep from rotting. Good drainage and consistent moisture is the solution, with a siting in sun to light shade.
Find a position of prominence for this extraordinary plant. It could easily become the focal point of the patio or deck, or join taller shrubs and trees around the perimeter of the property. As a specimen it is unforgettable, yet it is quite easy to grow and needs no maintenance.

Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticUnusual colorOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Maui Sunrise is the latest in the Royal Hawaiian elephant ear series from John Cho. This stunner takes white-striped foliage to a whole new level on a 3' tall, green-petioled plant, whose veins are swallowed up by a fast-moving band of white. Compared to its predecessor, Colocasia White Lava, Maui Sunrise develops the white coloration much earlier in the season and it goes much deeper into the leaf veins....truly stunning!
Maui Sunrise is an outstanding addition to the Royal Hawaiian series bearing tropical glossy green foliage, with flamboyant white markings and veins. It has been bred to be happy in full sun, sturdy garden performer, and great container specimen. Disease resistant with fabulous foliage and stem interest, tidy clumping habit would be a welcome addition in any garden or landscape.

Introduced at the 2000 International Aroid Society meeting in Florida, this dazzling elephant ear became the most wanted plant at the meeting. Emerging solid green, the 25" wide light green leaves begin turning butter cream-yellow along the center. The color then pours down into the main vein creating a huge bold Y-pattern in the center of the leaf. Color then bursts into the lateral (side) veins and begins its march to the margins. Coloring starts in spring, shortly after the first leaves mature. It sends out lots of side stolons which will root into the soil where moisture is adequate. The more moisture the larger the plant will grow.

Drosera spathulata - Sundew

Click to see full-size image

Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

The common name of this carnivorous plant - Sundew - derived from the mucilage that adorns each gland on the leaves of all plants glistening in the sunlight, reminiscent of spring sunshine on early morning dew. Although the common name seems almost delightful, this hides a morbid side to the plants, or more specifically, their prey capture method.
Drosera spatulata is known as the spoon-leaved sundew because of its wee spoon-shaped leaves. The Latin name literally translates to spatula shaped. The plant is spread through Southeast Asia, Southern Japan and China, New Guinea, Micronesia, and into eastern territories in New Zealand, Tasmania, and Australia.

Variegated Sky Flower is grown for its summer flowers and ornamental fruit. This evergreen fast growing shrub spreads and arches to 10 feet tall and wide and is great for live hedges and covering fences and corners. In the summer, cascading clusters of blue tubular flowers appear followed by wonderfully contrasting orange-yellow berries. This variegated form has creamy-yellow margins around the one inch long serrated leaves. In mild climates this plant can be in flower nearly year round with flowers and fruit appearing at the same time. It does best in full sun with frequent deep watering and is hardy to about 20-25F. A good choice for espaliers, as a small tree or large bush; all forms benefit from frequent selective pruning. Flowers are very attractive to butterflies.
Great for providing a color contrast in the landscape, and is especially well-suited as a bright-colored background or screening. Prune back in late-winter to encourage a more compact shape and strong flush of fresh spring foliage. Requires moderate watering in a well-drained soil.
