Wavy Scaly Cloakfern! I find xeric ferns so fascinating. After growing up with the notion that ferns only lived in humid, moist environs, to find there is a whole class of ferns that actually thrive in arid conditions, ki... More
Bishop's Cap cactus! On my first trip to Mexico Carl took me to a limestone hill out in the middle of what seemed to be a vast expanse of nothing much. The area was in the rain shadow between two much higher ridgelines a... More
This African orchid-tree has large coral-orange flowers, which are produced in such abundance that they completely cover this broad-spreading shrub from mid-summer until frost. The size and color o... More
Agarita! This highly ornamental shrub has twisted, prickly, green to blue-green foliage mottled in silver; and as the name implies, the leaves are arranged in threes. Agarita's butter-yellow blooms suddenly ap... More
False red agave! Bright fuchsia-red cylindrical flowers are tipped in emerald green; the glossy red spike that carries them reaches 4' tall. Grow in deep-shade in the lower Southwestern states, and in sun in milder cl... More
Narrow Leaf Queen's Tears! We knew that Billbergia nutans was native to Brazil and Argentina before we started traveling in these countries but we did not know exactly where. We always anticipated finding it at some time or ano... More
Several years back we visited the Huntington Botanical Garden. When we were near the Chinese Garden we noticed a grouping of straight trunked trees with smooth gray bark that were labeled as Brachychi... More
Droopy Blue Hesper Palm! Some list this plant as a variety of Brahea armata and others say it is a hybrid of B armata and B. brandegeei, whatever it really is I am impressed with it. This moderate growing, single trunked palm... More
Leopard Tree, Brazilian Ironwood! A moderate size tree to 45' tall with a broad spreading canopy. The foliage is soft and ferny and the species has no spines. Small yellow flowers occur in clusters at the branch tips during the summer... More
Desert Bird of Paradise This bird-of-paradise is native to Argentina but has naturalized in areas of western and central Texas. The large, showy yellow and red flowers on open racemes are exceptionally striking against the c... More
Red-bird-of-paradise! This highly-ornamental summer flowering herbaceous perennial attracts all the neighbors' attention as well as butterflies and hummingbirds. Produced all summer long, the showy red flowers are held abo... More
Cabell de Angel! Over the many years that we traveled in Mexico we came across many Calliandras. Some of our long time customers may remember the Bloody Nose Plant, (a.k.a. Calliandra grandiflora) that we offered for ... More
Scarlet Bottlebrush! This relatively hardy Bottlebrush comes from Western Australia. It prefers moist, well-drained soil but is tolerant of poorly-drained, almost boggy sites. It has rigid, blueish leaves on a dense everg... More
Gold-tipped bottlebrush! This specie's flowers are a bright red but sport golden tipped anthers, thus, the trait that gives the species it common name. This species generally grows to become a dense shrub at about 12' tall an... More
Green Flower Bottlebrush! When researching this bottlebrush, because admittedly I have not gown this plant for long, I find it has an open shrubby form reaching heights of 6' to 8' tall. It has greenish-white flowers from whic... More
Natural hybrid! In 2001, we spotted this Canna growing along a small stream where the coastal plains meet the foothills to the high Sierras. We thought that we had found a new species. So, upon our return, we contact... More
Berkeley Sedge! Sedges are quickly gaining popularity as groundcover alternatives to lawn grasses and Liriopes. They are tough, adaptable, easy to care for and look great. There are numerous species of diverse forms ... More
Bow-tie palm! Distinctive butterfly-like green leaflets that resemble a bow tie distinguish this species from all other cycads, or for that matter, any other plant! The strong stems that hold these leaves strictly ... More
Looks like a palm! Surprisingly, Ceratozamia latifolia is not very well represented in collections of exotic plants along the Gulf Coast. Its small size, cold hardiness and exotic appeal are all admirable traits that ma... More
Chinese Redbud! Regardless of how mild or how hard the winter is in your region we all look forward to its end. Plants that herald the forthcoming spring get a lot of attention when they begin to bloom. One of my fav... More
Silver European Fan Palm! An unusual variety from the mountains of Morocco that has distinctly silver-blue leaves! This characteristic is acquired with age, as is true with most blue-leaved palms. Exact hardiness is unknown bu... More
Drunk tree! The baobab of the Americas, or palo boracho, (drunk tree) as it is called in Argentina, is a bizarre, flowering tree. It resembles an enormous beet, with spines radiating out around its swollen trunk... More
Silk floss seedlings! Chorisia speciosa is native to Southeastern Brazil and Northeastern Argentina where the climate is tropical to subtropical and they seldom experience hard frosts. The overall shape of mature trees is ... More
Damianita! This low spreading shrub or woody perennial inhabits rocky, limestone outcroppings in the Trans-Pecos, Texas Hill Country and Northern Mexico. The plant's foliage is dark-green and needle-like and den... More
Yuzu! We originally obtained this citrus plant under the name of Citrus junos but I find that it is now listed as a hybrid. When we were in Hempstead our original seedlings grew quickly into upright small t... More
