  1. MATTHIOLA ARBORESCENS ALBA

    Unlike the common garden stocks, the white form of the fragrant tree stock is rarely encountered. Slowly, with age, it develops a trunk supporting several radiating rosettes of grey lanceolate leaves, each rosette producing spikes of sweetly perfumed white flowers. It is hardy and long lived in a sheltered well-drained spot. ... Learn More

  2. MELIANTHUS VILLOSUS

    Curious maroon-brown flowers, with chocolate bracts and green stamens, produce unusual inflated fruits above attractive, musky-perfumed deeply-fingered foliage on this very rare plant. In addition, this South African native provides many odd details in its life cycle. Compared with the more well known and widely available Melianthus major, this seldom-seen beauty is more reasonably sized for the smaller garden, and has lovely fuzzy apple green leaves as opposed to the glaucous grey-green of the major. The nectar-filled flowers are intricately veined bizarre beauties of green, brown, and deep purple, which are followed by large cubical green seed pods that are puffed up, and pop like a balloon when pressed. The black nectar bulges out of the mouth of the flower, spilling out as the lower flowers on the spikes slowly rotate from right side up to upside down over the course of a day. Melianthus are apparently the only genus in the plant world that have this mysterious rotation, which would make a perfect subject for time lapse photography. ... Learn More

  5. MORINGA PTERYGOSPERMA

    This fast-growing, drought-resistant tree, native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas in north western India is widely cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Hanging clusters of fragrant, orchid-like flowers later become hanging fruits which are three-sided brown capsules holding dark brown, globular seeds which have three whitish, papery wings and are dispersed by wind and water and are sometimes eaten like peas or roasted like nuts. The whitish-grey bark is surrounded by thick cork, and in cultivation the trunk is often cut back annually to 1–2 metres and allowed to regrow, and the pods and leaves thus remain within arm's reach. ...

  6. MULBERRY (MORUS NIGRA)

    Mulberries never really arrived commercially as a fruit, because they are just too delicate to travel when ripe. In Summer the fruits mature to a purplish-red, when they should be picked and eaten soon afterwards and treat them with care as they crumble easily. The fruit colour is derived from health-giving anthocyanins, and their flavour truly is sublime, as they are packed with lots of sweet juice. In addition this really is a truly beautiful ornamental tree, in spring and summer the foliage positively glows, whilst in the autumn and winter the stark, gnarled framework of branches looks absolutely stunning. ...

  7. MYRCIARIA CAULIFLORA

    Purple fruit, 3–4 cm in diameter, with one to four large seeds, have white, sweet, juicy pulp, closely resembling grapes, and with a similar flavour, which can be eaten raw or be used to make jellies and drinks (plain juice or wine). They are borne directly on the main trunks and branches of the tree, giving a distinctive and very odd-looking appearance. They do well in tropical and subtropical climates, but will survive temperatures as low as 22-27F, even when young. They make attractive conservatory plants if grown in a large pot. They are native to the Minas Gerais region of Brazil, spreading into Bolivia, Paraguay, and Northern Argentina. ... Learn More

    PAULOWNIA ELONGATA

    This truly spectacular tree is another of the Paulownia group, and is the fastest-growing of them all. More exotic than the more common Paulownia tomentosa, it opens its darker, cherry-tree pink "foxglove" flowers on naked branches in early spring with the large, dinner-plate-sized, soft furry leaves appearing later. If cut nearly to the ground in spring, enormous leaves develop on the shoots sprouting from the soil. It does especially well in poor, impoverished and quite dry soil! ... Learn More

  9. PAULOWNIA TOMENTOSA

    This truly spectacular tree produces large, pale mauve "foxglove" flowers on naked branches in early spring, the large, dinner-plate-sized, soft furry leaves appearing later. If cut to the ground in spring, enormous leaves develop on the shoots sprouting from the soil. It does especially well in poor, impoverished and quite dry soil! ... Learn More

    PAVONIA HASTATA

    Flowers consisting of pure white creased petals with a deep crimson centre, have the typical bunch of protruding pollen-covered anthers, typical of most in the mallow family. The plant sends out equally long side branches which are thin and droopy, and with pruning, it can look like a normal shrub, but it spreads out annually and benefits from pruning. Foliage is a dark bluish green the leaves being notched slightly and are long and narrow. Native to Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, it is vigorous and most attractive, but it should be grown with consideration as the seeds may be invasive. ... Learn More

  11. PECAN

    These nuts have a distinctive rich, buttery flavor and are probably the most nutritious of all nuts, and indeed are second in popularity only to the pea-nut! Trees live and produce nuts for hundreds of years in a favourably temperate climate, the deciduous trees putting out fresh growth in the spring. Closely related to walnuts, the leaves of the two trees look very similar. This hickory tree, native to Central and Southern North America, has been used as a food source by Native Americans for centuries before the arrival of European colonists. Growth rate of this fast-growing can be up to 1meter or 3 feet per year. This tree is perfect for home owners that love to harvest nuts for cooking. The plants were not actually domesticated until the 17th century, when the first plantations of pecans were established in Mexico. Hardy planting zones are 5-9. ... Learn More

  12. PELTOPHORUM PTEROCARPUM

    Amidst attractive divided foliage open sprays of glorious, fragrant, crinkly-petalled, bright yellow flowers, which form pods which are 5-10 cm long and 2.5 cm broad, and are red at first, ripening to black. It is commonly used in India for avenue trees, planted alternately with Delonix regia to give a striking yellow and red effect in summer. The wood has a wide variety of uses, including cabinet-making and the foliage is used as a fodder crop. This deciduous tree is widely grown in many tropical regions particularly in Nigeria, Pakistan, Florida and Hawaii. ... Learn More

    PHOENIX CANARIENSIS

    This attractive palm is very widely planted as an ornamental plant in warm temperate regions of the world, especially in areas with Mediterranean climates, and also in areas with a mild oceanic climate. It is easily recognized through its crown of leaves and trunk characteristics and it is common to see Canary Island date palms pruned and trimmed to enhance their appearance. When neatly pruned, the bottom of the crown, also sometimes called the nut, appears to have a pineapple shape. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. ... Learn More

  14. PHOENIX DACTYLIFERA MEDJOOL

    These seeds have been collected from the queen of all dates, the famous, luscious, and very expensive Medjool. These large, soft, sweet fruits will only fruit in the ground in hotter countries, although the smaller specimens make attractive potted plants for a warm courtyard or conservatory. All true edible date palm trees are desert plants, originally from the Middle East, and where they are native they prefer to get 20 to 40 inches of rain per year in the winter, with summers preferably being hot and dry with low humidity. These seeds have been cleaned and stratified and are ready to plant. ... Learn More

    PHOENIX RUPICOLA

    The most beautiful and tropical looking of the phoenix palms and also with the greenest leaves, this very graceful tree has soft, gracefully arching, glossy green fronds with hardly any spines at the leaf and bases as in other varieties, along with a smooth, slender, light grey trunk which is solitary, slender, light grey in colour and devoid of any remains of leaf bases or conspicuous leaf scars. It is native to the mountainous forests of India and Bhutan and the lower foothills of the Himalaya in India, namely Sikkim, West-Bengal and Arunchal Pradesh from 300 to 1200 m, usually occurring on cliffs, hillsides and similar terrain. Like other Phoenix palms, this plant is easy and fast growing, and is very adaptable and can be grown in temperate as well as tropical climates, certainly in areas where temperatures do not drop below -6C. It should also make an excellent indoor pot plant. Fruits mature through yellow and violet red to dark red-purple, the seeds being oblong, 1,5 to 2cm long and deeply grooved on one side. ...
