“companion crops” add  totally different colours,
textures, leaf patterns and appearances to the backyard
.  This text will
current to you varied tropical rainforest crops that mix properly with bigger
timber that you’ve got and add vivid shade and variety. 

Nearly all the photos under
had been photographs of crops
at our nursery.  Many
say that the “backyard will not be achieved till you add companion crops”.  It’s because
they combine nicely and might match among the many bigger trunked out current materials within the
backyard.  This might be principally a photographic tour.  I’ll solely make temporary feedback about every group of crops
and embrace info on tradition the place attainable.  Forms of crops are
introduced in random order with new species added right here and there.  So,

Ti crops are a Cordyline and recognized for his or her lush colours 
and are among the many most wanted tropical crops
.  These colourful
crops give a variety of colours for the backyard and tolerate shade.  The
hottest kind is Cordyline fruticosa. 
These are what we’re displaying principally under.  One other kind,
Cordyline australis
, will not be so unique however extra chilly hardy and
take full solar fairly nicely.  These are proven within the final row. 
C.fruticosa originate from Asia and tropical islands.  They
do have some susceptibility to chilly and have to be protected in the course of the winter if
you reside in areas that see freezes. 

We now have discovered that they like good
draining soil, common water and fertilizer, and filtered gentle with most
species.  We now have additionally discovered that these with darker colours equivalent to darkish
pink, black, or a mix of those colours do higher over the long term. 
These with sherbet colours are tougher to develop.  Ti’s are one of many
most colourful of the group of tropical rainforest crops. 
Important chilly
climate and freezes are laborious on this group of crops. Over the seasons,
colours and availability of those change.  


 

 

 

ALOCASIA – EXOTIC TROPICAL LEAFED PLANTS

Alocasia are a bunch of decorative crops recognized for his or her foliage greater than
their flowers.  Some have very giant leaves with putting colours. 
Native to many areas of the world, these unique crops give a distinct aptitude to

California.  Some species are dwarf tropical crops whereas others stand up to
about 10 toes.  Most want half day solar though a number of take full solar. 
Additionally, most want a frost free space. 

See Article on Alocasia we usually carry

  

COLOCASIA – ANOTHER EXOTIC TYPE OF TROPICAL
FOLIAGE

Colocasia is a bunch of crops very comparable and infrequently confused with
Alocasia.  These are recognized for his or her leaves not flowers.  Many have
problem with chilly temperatures however they’re strikingly stunning. 
All are usually smaller, clustering crops.  Additionally they like loads
of water and good drainage.  Leaf colours are sometimes inexperienced to
black with an occasional hybrid with some pink.  Included on this group is the wanted “Black Magic”, as proven
under.  This hybridized species
can have leaves which are nearly black in shade, blue on the underside of the
leaves.  We have discovered that, over time, crops have a tendency to say no in Southern
California gardens.  So, in the event you like them, understand they might have
to get replaced each few years.

  

 

 

 

PHILODENDRONS – ROSETTE AND CLIMBING VARIETIES
SOME VERY COLORFUL

This can be a group of tropical foliage crops that sometimes tackle two varieties: rosette
(confined) or climbing.  The primary group type a smaller plant that does not
crawl alongside the bottom.  The second group put out growths that crawl the
floor or can develop up palm trunks, fences or constructions.  Most Philodendron
want filtered gentle or shade.  The climbing kind could be
propagated from tip cuttings.  This group of crops is extra recognized
for his or her foliage than for any blossoms they could have.  There
are fairly a number of species that thrive in Southern California. 
Proven under are some hybrid varieties that show pink to purple to
even orange leaves.  The tremendous colourful species are likely to have much less
chilly hardiness.

EXOTIC ZAMIA CYCAD SPECIES

genus of cycads which are native to Mexico, Central America and South America. 
They are usually lush, inexperienced in shade
and unique showing.

pink, bronze or pink emergent leaves.  Some have plicated (deeply grooved) leaves with a
tough
floor reminding one of many Pringle Potato chip.  Most want
filtered gentle and are of a smaller dimension.  Many are delicate to frost
or
freezes.  All like good draining soil.  When you can develop any of those
rain forest crops, they’re positively an awesome addition to the
backyard. 
As with every genus of cycads, they’re very uncommon and are usually dearer
than different tropical crops.   Proven under
are photographs of some of
these splendidly stunning crops.

 

 
 

 

BROMELIADS – COLORFUL, SMALL, GREAT GARDEN COLOR

This group of crops are typically referred to as “air crops”.  That is
as a result of most are epiphytic crops (stay on different crops with out hurting the host
plant) and might survive with solely rainwater within the wild.
  This
thread offers extra with the bigger Bromeliads that may be planted into
the backyard ground.  For extra on Airplants, see under.  There are avid
collectors of those crops and lots of species and varieties are recognized to exist.  We have discovered that
Neorogelia
are fairly accommodating to the backyard as a result of they offer shade in
shady areas and wish minimal care.  However, Vrisia and
Aechmea
are fairly good as nicely.  Bromeliadsd have a tendency
to be simple to develop smaller crops.  However, there’s a number of that may
attain a 3 foot width to their leaves.  And, some will get
4 toes tall.  Many have beautiful and colourful blossoms.  The clustering Neorogelia
under takes coastal solar, which makes it much more pink.  It’s attainable to
get hybrids in good pink, pink, orange and yellow.  Guzmania
and Tillandsia are different varieties to think about.  We frequently have giant
clusters of Tillandsia.  Additionally, when obtainable,
the Vreisia imperialis is kind of putting and of excellent dimension (photograph backside left,
purple shade).  Together with the Ti crops, Bromeliads are among the many
extra colourful tropical crops.  One last level:  We get in
colourful Bromeliads on a regular basis – so our stock is quickly
altering.

 

BROMELIADS – AIRPLANTS
TILLANDSIA SPECIES

All of the “Airplants” are sometimes species of Tillandsia. 
These bromeliads are usually smaller however nonetheless put out very good
blossoms.  They’re tremendous simple to develop and might take solar in lots of
areas or filtered gentle.  They are often hooked up to tree trunks,
posts or fences.  All they want is an occasional spray of water
and a few fertilizer (liquid spray) utilized each few months. 
They’re very easy to develop.  We frequently mount them on a bit of
wooden but in addition carry free-standing clusters as proven right here.  Our
choice is normally fairly good on these crops.

JACOBINIA CARNEA
(JUSTICA C.)
–  BRAZILIAN PLUME,
FLAMINGO PLANT

We have been rising these crops for some time and actually like them.  This unique
filtered gentle

BUT SMALLER TREE


This unique tree is outstanding for a lot of causes.

two toes large. 
It additionally has pleated leaves as proven and has pink veins. 
The tree itself surprisingly would not get that huge, maybe fifteen toes
or a bit extra.  Trunk diameter is nearly all the time under six inches. 
By pruning, one can create a shorter, extra full tree. 
Or, one can let the first trunk get tall and overhead.  Culturally,
this species tolerates coastal solar and might take sturdy
filtered gentle and is chilly hardy into the 20’s F.  It’s nearly
unattainable to seek out.  Though presently out of inventory, we sometimes get
in a number of crops.  Name for our current availability.  BTW, Ficus
as a bunch
are usually giant timber, however not this species.  This species
won’t type buttress roots or have invasive roots so far as we all know..

solar.  When you get colder than 32 levels F.,
it’s a dangerous plant for you.

areas due to their vibrant colours. 
They’re sometimes smaller crops,
hardly over six toes of peak.  They can be utilized as home crops. 
For these of us in Southern California, the principle menace is a chilly winter which
causes leaves to discolor,
droop or fall off.  We do intermittently carry a

chilly menace.  
So far as rainforest crops go, the Croton are unequaled for tropical shade.

Somewhat, suffice it to say that I’ve researched as to which species will

Thus, search steerage on which species to develop.
