In the early spring, just before or as the tree first leafs out, appear the many scarlet-red flowers in 3 to 6 inch long dense racemes near the branch tips, giving inflorescence a bit of a bottlebrush look.
Plant in full sun and irrigate deeply regularly to occasionally. Hardiness - it is tolerant to nighttime dips to at least 28F.

Amorphophallus bulbifer - Voodoo lily

Click to see full-size image

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersUnusual colorOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Voodoo lily, Devils tongue, Snake Palm, Corpse flower. Amorphophallus bulbifer is one of the prettiest of the Voodoo Lilies and the inflorescence doesn't smell that bad compared to others of the genus. Amorphophallus only blooms when mature and even so it doesn't bloom every year. The unpleasant smell that the flower omits is only present for a few hours after the flower opens. If the flower is pollinated (normally by flies if the plant is outside) it will take 1 year for the plant to mature its seeds. The seed stalk is very pretty with the seeds changing colors from green to red. During this time the tuber will not produce a leaf.

Bambusa guangxiensis - Chinese Dwarf Bamboo

Chinese Dwarf is a hedging clumping bamboo that grows to roughly 10 ft in height, but can get taller in good conditions - you simply hedge it to the size you want! It grows very differently from traditional bamboo, with a very bushy, tufting habit with its foliage and does not naturally show the culms. Chinese Dwarf has quite pretty, large green leaves and gives a very tropical feel instead of a normal hedge. Chinese Dwarf is an extremely fast growing, hardy bamboo, and can achieve a privacy hedge in under 18 months! You need to trim Chinese Dwarf down between 1-4 times a year to maintain at the ideal height and to promote new fresh foliage. Chinese Dwarf is definitely a fantastic privacy hedge, sound barrier and wind break. Hedge it down to any preferred height and even clean out the below foliage to create a japanese style effect. Chinese Dwarf can be grown in full sun to part shade. Trim back as much as you desire to maintain size and promote new foliage. Chinese Dwarf is a great option for pots or troughs.
