#VeldfirePincushion #Protea
Leucospermum 'Veldfire' (Veldfire Pincushion) - Medium sized evergreen shrub that grows 4 to 6 feet tall by 6 to 8 feet wide with large (3 1/2" long by 2 inch wide) dark green leaves that have red on the dentations at the leaf tip. From gray cone-like structures emerge the 4 inch wide flower heads with yellow erect anthers and red "ribbons" (these form the ball of the flower) that are present from late winter through spring into early summer. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally – in coastal gardens this plant is drought tolerant. It is reliably hardy to 26 degrees F and noted as possibly hardier (to the low 20s). As with other Leucospermum this plant is sensitive to Phosphorus and so fertilizers containing this element should not be applied to it. The name for the genus is derived from the Greek word 'leukos' meaning "white" and 'sperma' meaning "seed". This plant is considered to be a hybrid between the Ember Pincushion, Leucospermum glabrum and the Grey Tree Pincushion, L. conocarpodendron. Though this hybrid reportedly originated in South African, it was first introduced in New Zealand at the Horticultural Research Centre at Levine, near the southern tip of the North Island, through an exchange program between them and the University of Hawaii . We have been selling this plant since 1998 and it is a great showy and reliable garden plant but is not considered to be good for the cut flower trade as it has short stems and the flower heads snap off too easily from the stems. The information on this page is based on our library and online research, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others, and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who hav..

The Brazilian firetree, or Brazilian fern tree, is a tree species from tropical America, notable for its fast growth (up to 3 meters per year).[1] According to Francis Hallé, this tree may even reach 30 meters high in only five years, which would make it one of the fastest growing trees ever (an average growth of 6 meters per year) - Wikipedia

Euphorbia flanaganii, commonly known as Medusa's Head, is one of the caudex-forming Euphorbiias, similar to Euphorbia procumbens (also know as Euphorbia pugniformis), Euphorbia esculenta and Euphorbia caput-medusae. It gets its common name from both its general reptilian appearance and the fact that it will grow to the size of a human head if left alone. It's a member of Medusoid Euphorbias, a group of succulents native to South Africa.

Phyllostachys vivax is one of the hardiest timber bamboo. In most circumstances P. vivax will mature to 45 feet in height, with 3-4 inch diameter canes, but if given ideal conditions in SE USA, or China and Japan, it can grow to 70 feet and 5 inches in diameter. This may be the largest hardy bamboo growing in the Pacific Northwest along with P. edulis Moso. It has grown over 4 inches in diameter in Oregon and has been present in this area for over 100 years.

It is a small tree, growing 4–6 m (13–20 feet) tall, with a trunk up to 40 cm (16 in) diameter. The aromatic leaves are pinnate, with 11–21 leaflets, each leaflet 2–4 cm (0.79–1.57 in) long and 1–2 cm (0.39–0.79 in) broad. The plant produces small white flowers which can self-pollinate to produce small shiny-black drupes containing a single, large viable seed. Though the berry pulp is edible—with a sweet but medicinal flavour—in general, neither the pulp nor seed is used for culinary purposes

Natural Mystic Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus polyrhizus and Hylocereus undatus. This variety was introduced to Florida by import from Thailand where it is grown small scale commercially in Homestead. It is a consistent producer of red-fleshed fruit that typically weighs 1 pound. The fruit is semi-sweet with an average brix rating of 15. It is excellent eaten fresh but even better chilled. I particularly like it chilled and cubed on top of salad. You can check out our Pinterest salad recipe page for other great uses. This variety does not need hand pollination or cross-pollination to set fruit. Once mature it is a heavy producer of flower buds. To get even larger Dragon Fruit I would recommend hand pollination and bud thinning. When flowers appear the pollen it is a great choice for other varieties that do not set fruit on their own. Mature stems have meaty flesh that is three sided and medium-sized spins. In 2016 this variety produced one of the largest fruit I have ever seen. The fruit weighed over 2 pounds and had a brix rating of 19 with an amazing watermelon flavor. This variety was acquired from a grower in Louisiana.

Zamia furfuracea is a cycad native to southeastern Veracruz state in eastern Mexico. Although not a palm tree (Arecaceae), its growth habit is superficially similar to a palm; therefore it is commonly known as cardboard palm or cardboard cycad. Other names include cardboard plant, cardboard sago, Jamaican sago, and Mexican cycad (from Mexican Spanish Cícada Mexicana). The plant's binomial name comes from the Latin zamia, for "pine nut", and furfuracea, meaning "mealy" or "scurfy".

#Lampranthus #iceplant #landscape

The genus name "Lampranthus" means "shining-flowers" in Latin, and the species of this genus have unusually large, bright flowers, of a range of colours (sometimes even bi-coloured), that usually appear in summer, and frequently cover the plants entirely.

The species of this genus typically have long, smooth, elongated, succulent leaves. These can be triangular or cylindrical, and like all plants in its family, appear in opposite pairs on the shrubs' branches.[2]

Lampranthus can be clearly distinguished from related genera by its seed capsules. The seed capsules of all of these genera have triangular valves, which open when they become wet, exposing the seed chambers (locules). In contrast to Ruschia, each valve in a Lampranthus capsule has two wings, on either side of it, but no visible closing body. Unlike in Delosperma, the seeds in Lampranthus seed chambers are partially covered by a covering membrane. Lampranthus seeds sometimes have visible stalks too.

Physical Graffiti Dragon Fruit is a hybrid variety that comes from Hylocereus guatemalensis and Hylocereus undatus. This variety produces a pinkish red-skinned fruit with light purple sweet flesh. These fruits are medium to large averaging .75 to 1.5 pounds. This variety is certainly worthy of attention by home growers for its exceptional taste. If you’re looking for great tasting fruit you must consider this variety. On the downside, this variety is non-self-fertile but will set fruit with most red fleshed fruit pollen. The flowers are huge nocturnal blooms that are over 14 inches across and blooms all summer long. It is tops on the list when it comes to flower production. This variety has typical Hylocereus undatus three sided growth that is very aggressive. Additional internet research has stated that 1S and Physical Graffiti are the same. The 1S is seedling created by Paul Thomson and mentioned in his book Pitahaya. The 1S is a cross between Rixford, a purple-fleshed Guatemalan variety, and Niezel, a white-fleshed undatus variety. This variety was acquired from a tropical nursery in Louisiana.

Dragon fruit is an exotic cactus that is found in Asia, Mexico, and parts of South America. It is not grown in North America, which is why the plant is not as common in this region. Dragon fruit can be planted as ornamental plants, but they do bare delicious fruit that is rather tasty. In fact, it is often used in jams, ice cream, fruit juice, and wine. Let’s start by becoming more familiar with the different types of dragon fruit, then we will jump right into how to grow the plant.

#Lantana #plants #landscape

Moderate to fast-growing evergreen shrub to 4-6’ tall and wide. Can be pruned into a small patio tree. Lantana is a popular heat-tolerant low-maintenance perennial shrub revered for its free-blooming nature. This vigorous variety forms a rounded-mound of rich green foliage cloaked in a profusion of bi-colored red orange and yellow flower clusters that appear primarily spring to fall or nearly year-round in mild climates. These butterfly-attracting flowers are followed by clusters of small deep-purple-colored berries that attract various species of birds. Versatile and well-suited in beds or borders as an accent hedge container specimen or mass planted for an eye-catching display of color. Considered drought tolerant once established but looks best with moderate watering. Prefers a well-drained soil and a full to partial sun exposure.
