This is a very rare species in cultivation, and likely a one time offering.
These unusual plants grow from a thick, slowly growing tuber, often branching, which creeps horizontally just below the soil surface. Horizontal tuber can measure up to 30" long by 10" across, the plant produces one huge, much-divided leaf with a stout prickly stem. The compound leaves are up to 30 inches tall and are supported on slender spotted stems with very rose-like thorns. The fascinating leaves are an enlogated bi-lobed bat shape, often with fenestrations (window holes).
These are now mature, over 20 years old seedlings of a most unusual aroid, distantly related to Amorphophallus. These seeds were planted in 2000, originated from an ethnobotanist in the jungles of Benin, along the west coast of Africa. The indigenous people there use the species for a variety of medicinal properties.

We obtained this plant in 2016, it was grown from the seeds brought to us from the plant in St. Catherines Monastery.
Holy Bramble, Burning Bush of the Bible. Rubus sanctus is a symbol of God revealing himself to man. An instance of it can be found at the Chapel of the Burning Bush on Mount Sinai, where it is revered as the original burning bush of the Bible. Today, it is very large in size, and many monks and scholars agree that the bush's presence is the very reason St. Catherine's Monastery developed in the first place. This longevity and location lead to its Latin name. Derivation of the botanical name: Rubus - latin name for Blackberry, Raspberry; Sanctus - sacred.
Rubus sanctus is a very long lived fruit shrub.

Cananga fruticosa - Dwarf Ylang-Ylang

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This plant is seasonally sensitive: during cooler months leaves may drop or get yellow/dark spots. New leaves will regrow with warm temperatures (over 80F). It is still available for purchase but do not order if leaves appearance matters to you.
Dwarf Ylang-Ylang, small tree or shrub with highly scented flowers. This is one of the most desired and sought after rare fragrant plants. It is pretty easy to grow, stays compact and in nice tree-like shape. Flowers smell as great as full size Ylang Ylang tree, although sometimes fragrance may be less intense and requires warm and humid conditions for full aroma. The plant blooms year round providing warm conditions. It can be also grown as a container and a house plant, but keep in mind it requires bright light for profuse flowering.

Cyanastrum (Kabuyea) hostifolium - African Lily of the Valley

Small shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This is a rare, unique collectible!
The flowers of this small perennial have a clean, sweet fragrance, the plant booms in Spring from March to April. The plant forms very curious stacks of perennial corms. Kabuyea is a plant genus in the family Tecophilaeaceae, first described as a genus in 1998. It has one known species, Kabuyea hostifolia (syn. Cyanastrum hostifolium), native from Tanzania to Mozambique in low elevation areas.
