Click to see full-size image

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

Red dwarf banana, a newly described rare endemic from the cold tropical mountains of Yunnan. This species is well suited as a pot plant. Its dramatically red flowers make a real difference to other banana species.
Banana sowing instructions: Abrade a side of each seed with a sand paper, then soak seeds for 24 hours before sowing 1/2" deep in a potting mix. Keep warm, between 70 and 85F and in a bright light.

Musa thompsonii - seeds

Click to see full-size image

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

Musa thompsonii is a subtropical species native to the Himalayas in Bhutan and northeastern India. Its pseudostems can reach a height of up to 15 ft. However, young plants can easily be grown in containers and kept small by cutting back overgrown stems. Young plants of Musa thomsonii are extremely attractive having a slender, graceful habit. The pseudostems and long leaf stalks are heavily waxy and contrast well with the emerging leaves which are uniformly stained red below. The upper surface of the leaf is plain green, somewhat glossy and with blue or purple tones in the midrib channel. Not the fastest grower, Musa thomsonii is thought to be a low altitude plant, so is not likely to be particularly cold tolerant, but doesn't mind cool nights. The seedy fruit of Musa thomsonii is reported to have sweet flesh but the hard seeds would have to be removed, a rather laborious process, in order to render the flesh palatable.

Musa velutina markkuana - seeds

Click to see full-size image

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

Pink Velvet Banana. An ornamental banana with bright pink colored fruits. The plant is very attractive as a garden ornamental and its popularity is enhanced by its relative hardiness for a banana. Reported to be hardy to 20F, though temperatures below 32F generally kill back foliage which will regrow when temperatures warm. While not dwarf in form, this species generally remains quite small and can flower and fruit in just over a year from seed. A small slender plant with narrow leaves to about 4ft, which flowers at a very young age (usually in the second year) producing a very attractive red and cream flower spike that stays reasonably upright. The pink fruits are covered with thin hairs, hence its alternative common name, the Hairy Banana. The novelty is the hand of small pink velvety bananas which form quite a talking point.
Grown as an ornamental for its beautiful pink-fruits and large pink flowers. The fruits could be edible (from some sources), though they are quite seedy with minimal flesh.
This banana suckers readily from the base to produce a nice clump for next year, or you can cut them off for additional plants to grow on. Musa velutina grows readily from fresh seed.

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

A superb but rarely encountered Himalayan Lily. Slender stems up to 4 ft tall are clothed with narrow leaves. They then make huge flowers at the crown, very late in the season and rarely before October or November.
When these open they are large, fragrant, white chalices, the weight of which can bow the plant. They are one of the most glorious autumnal lilies. A nice humus-rich soil in light shade with the shelter of a small shrub, is ideal. Fully hardy and not difficult to grow, but seldom seen in view of its late flowering season.

This compact vine has a twining habit producing 2-3" dark blue funnel shaped flowers with golden throat, displayed throughout it's dense deep green foliage. It is the least invasive of all thunbergia vines, grows rather slowly and keeps very compact shape. This species is probably the best for container culture or a small trellis. It tolerates shade, too. It is hardy to light freeze which also makes this species very unique, especially for subtropical gardeners.

Vermiculite - soilless growing media, 1 gal bag

Click to see full-size image

Vermiculite is a hydrous, silicate mineral. It is a wonderful growing media for many purposes:
Soilless growing media: exfoliated vermiculite is combined with other materials such as peat or pine bark to produce soilless growing media for the professional horticulturalist and for the home gardener. These mixes promote faster root growth and give quick anchorage to young roots. The mixture helps retain air, plant food and moisture, releasing them as the plant requires them.
Seed germination: either used alone or mixed with soil or peat, vermiculite is used to germinate seeds. Very little watering is required. When vermiculite is used alone, seedlings should be fed with a weak fertilizer solution when the first true leaves appear.
Storing bulbs and root crops: pour vermiculite around bulbs placed in container. If clumps are dug, allow to dry for a few hours in the sun and then place in cartons or bushel baskets and cover with vermiculite. The absorptive power of vermiculite acts as a regulator that prevents mildew and moisture fluctuation during the storage period. It will not absorb moisture from the inside of stored tubers, but it does take up free water from the outside, preventing storage rot.
As a soil conditioner: Where the native soil is heavy or sticky, gentle mixing of vermiculite up to one-half the volume of the soil is recommended. This creates air channels and allows the soil mix to breathe. Mixing vermiculite in flower and vegetable gardens or in potted plants will provide the necessary air to maintain vigorous plant growth. Where soils are sandy, mixing of vermiculite into the soil will allow the soil to hold water and air needed for growth.

Angie mango originated in South Florida. The flavor is classified in the Alphonso class of mangos with a deep sweetness and sophisticated profile rich in apricot. This variety is valuable due to its relatively small growth habit, rich and complex flavor, and good disease resistance. It was named after Angie Whitman, wife of Bill Whitman and a trustee of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Fruit is yellow to orange in color at maturity, and average about 1 lb. The fruit is oblong and saffron yellow with Indian orange blush on the sun-exposed shoulders. The skin is smooth and without visible lenticels. The flesh is tangerine orange and without fiber. The flavor is rich and sweet.
The trees are considered semi-dwarf and easy to manage through pruning. The disease tolerance is excellent and given its early season it often can be harvested before the rainy season in South Florida. The tree is semi-dwarf and highly manageable with annual pruning. Size can be maintained at or below 8 ft with consistent production.

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!
