Click to see full-size image

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleThorny or spiny

Lily Thorn. This is a rare and unusual thorny shrub with corky bark. It is related to such fragrant plants as gardenia, euclinia, portlandia, randia, and cubanola. During the summer, big bell shaped, lily-like yellow flowers dangle from the plant. Can be trained as a Bonsai tree. The fruit has an agreeable tartness and good flavor, and seems as if it was capable of being improved by cultivation, but is little known.

Ceratonia siliqua - Carob Tree

Click to see full-size image

Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The seeds of the Carob Tree, all being the same size, are used as weights in eastern Mediterranean countries (the word "carat" comes from the Arabic name of the seeds). So the modern word carat owes its derivation to the same pathway that named the Carob, which was originally used by Arab jewelers to weigh their precious metals and stones!
Carob is cultivated for its abundance of pods, rich in sugar when ripe, which are used for the production of alcohol or ground with the seeds to make carob bean meal for animal feed.

Chorisia (ceiba) hybrid Patricia (Golden)

Click to see full-size image

Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersDeciduousThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This is a new variety of Ceiba with very showy, large golden flowers with red centers.
This Ceiba is a seedling that was grown from a batch of seed collected from Willis Harding Park in North Miami. There are many varieties of Ceiba there but 98 percent of them are pink. There are two trees there with white/yellow flowers and that is Ceiba Sunset and another called Ceiba Rhodognaphalon which has had a lot of controversy over the name and is suspected to actually be a Ceiba chodatii. The two trees are close together so the cross pollination of the two is what produced this hybrid. They were naturally pollinated by bees or other pollinators (just not hand pollinated).
The hybrid is grafted
What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

Clusias, with their beautiful "porcelain" flowers, are the easiest plants to grow. It will forgive you if you forget to water it... Takes both sun or shade. Very slow growing and can be used as a potted specimen. The plant forms interesting aerial roots. Small leathery, pear shaped leaves on compact, rounded shrub, with small light pink flowers. The leaves have a special effect: you may write with a sharp stick on the surface, and the writing will stay forever. Thus the common name of this plant!

Very rare species, that we have seen only in private collections or botanical gardens.

The form is round-headed with a medium to fast growth rate and a coarse texture. Flowers are showy white with yellow spots in the spring.

Cannon ball Tree. Rare tree with a bizarre fruit that can be seen only in tropical botanic gardens and a few larger private gardens. It is a very tall tree which sheds its large, elliptical leaves several times a year. The pinkish-red flowers grow directly from the trunk near the base of the crown and are strongly scented in the evening. Blooms year round. Flowers are followed by large, globular fruit, reddish-brown in color, which do indeed resemble cannonballs and remain on the tree for many months. On older trees there may be dozens of fruits and flower clusters at the same time.

Vine or creeperSemi-shadeEpiphyteModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Anthony's Rick-Rack, Zig-Zag Cactus, Fishbone Orchid Cactus. It is nightblooming and its flowers last only a single night in spring. Because the flowers are so quickly spent, this epiphyte is mainly only grown for the strange leaves which lend it the common name Ric-Rac Cactus, or occasionally Zig-Zag or Fishbone Cactus. It can be grown either in orchid substrate, or in regular cactus potting soil with a bit of humus added. In the wild it attaches itself to trees, clinging by little aerial root filaments along the zigzagging succulent leaves, but is adaptable to terrestrial habits. It loves strong yet indirect lighting. It does not need a lot of water and should be permitted to dry out entirely between waterings.

Winged Beauty, Costa Rican Butterfly Vine.
Spurge family is well known for the poinsettia and other showy euphorbias, but not for its unusual vines. This is one which seems to enchant anyone who sees it. The most dramatic feature is the flowering shoots. Each has a pair of broad, pointed, reddish purple bracts, 2-3 inches long, widely spreading above and below the clustered small, whitish flowers. Outstanding sized bracts with an eye-catching show of color characterize this vigorous growing vine. Flowers year-round with its heaviest bloom in late summer. It usually recovers after light freeze.
