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

Gardenia x taitensis Nana - Dwarf Tahitian Gardenia

Click to see full-size image

Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Tahitian Gardenia hybrid with a dwarf growth habit and perfect compact round shape of the bush. At the center of each miniature bloom is a small tuft of petals. Fragrance is intoxicating and heady. Blooms appear throughout the growing season from late winter until fall.
Leaves are much smaller that regular Tahitian gardenia, and the shrub stays short, can be kept under 3 ft if trimmer, and 4 ft tall if let go. Perfect for container culture. Plants have good resistance to root diseases that often plague gardenias in container culture.

Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Jasmine sambac Grand Duke - The biggest flower variety, the Grandest of all Jasminum sambac. Flowers are 1-1.5 inch wide, triple, like little carnations. Blooms profusely from April through June, then sporadically during the year. Dark green leaves are very ornamental. This variety grows as a medium size bush, very slow growing. Trim regularly otherwise it may become leggy. Tolerates shade, great container plant, can be grown as indoor plant too, providing enough light. The more light, the more flowers you will get. Keep somewhat on dry side: sambacs don't like too much water and bloom better in dry conditions. If grown indoors, watch for insects (spider mites). Fertilize once a month during warm season.

Mansoa alliacea (Cydista aequinoctialis) - Garlic Vine. This is one of the most rewarding flowering vines that you can grow, unless that you are a vampire. Interestingly enough crushed leaves smell like garlic. It is one of the most wanter winter-flowering vines. When in full bloom, it looks like a cascade of blue-purple over a fence or trellis. Deep lavender flowers with white throat fading to a paler lavender within a few days, and you can see all three colors on the plant at the same time. Winter-Spring bloomer, it will also have some flowers on and off throughout the year. The vine has moderate growth rate and can stay compact in a pot as a specimen, and even can be grown as a house plant. It can tolerate some light frost.

Mimosa pudica (strigillosa) - Sensitive Plant

Click to see full-size image

Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Sensitive Plant. It is a fun plant to grow. The leaves fold up when touched. If touched with a bit more force, the petioles will also bend at their pulvinis and the leaves droop. These movements are called seismonastic movements (reaction to physical shock). At night, the leaves will also fold and bend in movements known as nyctonastic movements (reaction to absence of light). It is a wonderful groundcover, can integrate with grass and pink powderpuff flowers stick out of grass - very showy! Can be mowed over with no damage to established plants.
Close related to Mimosa pudica - Mimosa strigillosa, very similar looking. It is also sensitive to touch but the growth
habit is prostrate and the leaf arrangement is not palmate. The leaves of Mimosa pudica are palmate. We carry both species, mixed variety.
