If grown in containers, use a good quality potting media that provides adequate water drainage. When used in landscapes, plants should be located 2 to 3 feet apart. Crotons thrive in warm, humid weather and should be watered frequently, but not excessively. New foliage will wilt when thirsty, and can be used as a watering guide. Plants located indoors will become dusty in time and should occasionally be taken outside into a shady location to be washed off. This will also help manage spider mites which are occasional pests.  For outdoor crotons, full or shifting sun is ideal.

Leucophyllum Futescens

 

Texas sage

 

4” bag- $400.00, 6”bag-$600.00, 10” pot-$ 800.00

 

The Texas sage is a strong and hardy plant that has adapted itself to a harsh environment. The plant thrives on neglect, and grows independent of any outside assistance from a home gardener. Plant Texas sage in full sun, where the plant receives at least eight hours of sun per day. Shade stunts the growth of a Texas sage bush. Sage bushes that receive too much shade do not bloom. Water the Texas sage bush very rarely, if at all. Texas sage bushes do not like moisture. The plant can survive on occasional rains. Water only if your area is rain-free for several months.

Plumbago

 

white: 4”bag-$200.00, 6”bag-$300.00 10”pot-$500.00

Blue:4”bag-$200.00, 6” bag-$300.00, 10”pot-$500.00

 

Plumbago, a beautiful perennial shrub, loves full sun to partial shade. It grows to a height of 3 to 4 feet and can be up to 5 feet wide. The plumbago is a favorite with butterflies. This attractive shrub can be found as a foundation plant or in borders. Plant in a sunny spot. The plumbago loves sun and heat, and is extremely drought-tolerant. Water at the base of the plant and try not to get the flowers wet. This plant is drought-tolerant and almost thrives on neglect, so there will be no need for constant watering.

 

Rosellia

 

Fire Cracker

 

4”bag- $300.00, 6” bag- $400.00

 Place the firecracker plant in a location that receives direct sunlight for six to eight hours a day. Grow the plant in fertile, moist, well-drained potting soil mix for the best results.

 

 

Aglaonema

Silver King: 10”pot- $3200.00

Silver Queen Coloured: 8” $1500.00, 10”pot- $1800.00

 

Grow aglaonema in a medium-sized container filled with a well-drained, fertile potting mix. Keep the plant in a location that receives low to medium light, such as near a north- or east-facing window. Water aglaonema once every five to six days to keep the soil constantly moist. Soak the soil until water begins to exit the drainage holes on the bottom of the container, wait several minutes, and then drain away any excess moisture. Apply water once every seven to 10 days during winter.

 

Kalanchoe

 6” bag- $300.00, 6”pot-$350.00

 

Kalanchoes are pretty low-maintenance plants, thriving in the low humidity of winter households. Kalanchoes need lots of light, preferably a south-facing window in winter and bright indirect light (or east/west window) in summer. If your Kalanchoe plant is looking leggy and thin, it probably isn’t getting enough light. Over-watering is the main killer of kalanchoes! Allow your kalanchoe to get dry between watering. Then water thoroughly until it runs out the bottom, and immediately empty the drainage tray. Never leave the plant sitting in water.

 

Lantana

 

Lantana Yellow 4” bag- $200.00, 6”bag-$250.00

Lantana Confetti 4”bag-$200.00, 6”bag- $250.00

 

While newly planted lantanas require frequent watering, once established, these plants require little maintenance and are even tolerant of somewhat dry conditions. In fact, a good soaking about once a week should keep them relatively happy. Although it isn’t required, lantana plants can be given a light dose of fertilizer each spring, but too much may inhibit their overall flowering. To encourage reblooming, cut the tips (deadhead) periodically. Overgrown plants can be given new life by cutting back a third of their growth. They will bounce back quickly.

 

Zamioculcas Zamifolia

 

Z Z Plant

 

10” pot-$1500.00

 

ZZ plants do best in bright to moderate, indirect light but will do fine in extremely low levels of light. This plant makes an ideal plant for a window-less office or bathroom where it will only receive small amounts of fluorescent, ZZ plant care starts with a lack of care. In fact, ZZ plants will do better if you leave them alone.

 Hibiscus require at least 1 inch of rain (or equivalent watering) each week. They like to be constantly moist, but not wet. Feed twice a month during the growing season and prune as necessary to control plant size and cut back errant branches. Cut branches back to just above a side shoot. Check plants periodically for pests such as aphids, white flies, and mealy bugs. Use a horticultural oil or insecticidal soap to control these pests
 Nerium
 Oleander
 4” bag- $250.00, 6” bag- $350.00

 

The first thing you should know if you want to grow an oleander plant in the garden is that you need to avoid growing oleanders in home landscapes where children and pets play. All parts of oleander shrubs are poisonous and the smoke from burning oleander debris is toxic. Ingesting even a small amount of foliage, flowers or shoots from an oleander plant can be fatal. Oleander care is easy and this makes the shrub popular with highway departments. Although the shrubs are drought-tolerant, they look their best when they are watered during dry spells. However, take care not to over water them. Yellowing leaves indicate that the plant is getting too much water.

 Schefflera

 

4” bag- $200.00 6” bag- $300.00, 6” pot-$300.00, 8”pot- $350.00

 

Schefflera plants are medium light plants, which means that they need bright but indirect light. To water correctly, wait until the soil in the pot dries out and then thoroughly soak the soil when you water. Often, people will over water their plant and this will eventually kill it. Yellow leaves that fall off the plant is a sign that you may be watering too much.

 

Scaevola taccada

 

beach cabbagesea lettucebeach naupaka

 

4” bag-$350.00, 6” bag- $450.00

 

It is a large bush reaching up to about 4 m in height typical of littoral zones where it grows very close to the sea exposed to the salt spray, usually on sandy or pebbly soils. Leaves are slightly succulent, about 20 cm long, closely alternate and crowded at the stem tips. They are glabrous with a fleshy-looking yellowish green color. The fruits and flowers are white. Scaevola taccada blooms the whole year round and the flowers have a fan-like shape which gives them the name fan flower or half flower. The fruits float in seawater and are propagated by ocean currents, this bush being one of the pioneer plants in new sandbanks in tropical areas.

They are shade-loving plants in their native habitats, and in the home they prefer light to moderate shade. Some varieties can withstand more light. During the summer, water and mist frequently. They thrive with higher humidity. In water, reduce watering, but never allow the soil to dry out.

 

Syngonium

 

Goose Foot Plant, Arrowhead

 

6”pot-$550.00,8”pot-$650.00,10”pot-$800.00,12”pot-$1000.00 14”pot- $1200.00

 

Arrowhead plant care is quite easy. The arrowhead plant should be allowed to dry out between watering. Although the plant enjoys some moisture, it should not be kept too wet, which may lead to root rot.

 Strelitzia Reginae

 

Bird of Paradise

 

10” bag- $1200.00, 10” pot- $1500.00, 14”pot- $2000.00

 

They need lots of light and will even do well with full sun if they have been introduced to it slowly. Provide sufficient light indoors during our short day, dark winter by locating them in the sunniest window and giving them supplemental artificial light.

 

Anthurium

 

6”pot- $1200.00, 8”pot-$1600.00, 10”pot-$1800.00

 

Anthuriums as a rule (indoors) will take about as much light as you can provide them with – but not direct sunlight.  Place plant in an area with good, bright, diffused light. This houseplant requires low to medium amounts of water.

 

Galphimia gracilis

 

Shower of Gold, Gold Shower

 

4”bag-$300.00, 6”bag-$450.00, 10”bag-$800.00, 6”pot-$450.00,  8” pot-$600.00, 10”pot-$950.00, 14”pot-$1500.00

Frangipani

 

10” bag-$1000.00, 10”pot- $1200.00,14”pot-$1250.00,              17”pot-$1500.00

 

Plumerias can be grown in containers, in the ground, or containers sunk in the ground. During the months of active growth, ample sun, food, and water are essential. Healthy plumeria will grow vigorously and bloom regularly and profusely when they receive at least 6 hours of full sun per day and an ample amount of the proper fertilizers. Plumeria love lots of water, but can’t tolerate wet feet, so they must be planted in highly organic fast draining soil or in beds with adequate drainage. Clay, gumbo, and silt are examples of poor draining soils; avoid these at all costs

 

Chlorophytum Comosum

 

Spider Plant

 4” bag $250.00 6” bag- $400.00

 

The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is considered one of the most adaptable of houseplants and the easiest to grow. This plant can grow in a wide range of conditions and suffers from few problems, other than brown tips. Caring for spider plants is easy. These tough plants tolerate lots of abuse, making them excellent candidates for newbie gardeners or those without a green thumb. Provide them with well-drained soil and bright, indirect light and they will flourish. Water them well but do not allow the plants to become too soggy, which can lead to root rot..

 

Caladium

 4” bag- $650.00, 6”bag-$800.00

 

The most important factors in caladium care are moisture and feeding. Fertilizer will help strengthen the plants in order to produce adequate tubers for the following growing season. Caladiums need to be watered on a regular basis, especially during dry conditions. In fact, watering them on a weekly basis is recommended. Caladiums that are grown in containers should be checked daily and watered as needed.

 

Brunfelsia Pauciflora

 Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

 

6” bag- $300.00, 10” pot- $1000.00, 17” pot- $2000.00

 

These flowers last for three days and change color with each day. The first day they are purple (yesterday), the second day they change to a pastel lavender shade (today), and on the third day they change to an almost white color (tomorrow).

 

Calathea

 

Prayer plant, Zebra Plant

 

8” pot- $450.00 10” Pot- $600.00 12” pot- $850.00 14” pot- $1000.00

 

As with all houseplants, zebra plant care begins with the soil. Tropical plants need soil that holds moisture but is also well draining. Without good drainage, the roots will rot. ‘Wet feet’ is probably the major cause of failure when growing zebra indoor plants. A lack of water, however, will cause leaves to curl. A good potting mix consists of one part soil, two parts peat moss and two parts perlite. When potting your newly acquired zebra plant, care should be taken to water thoroughly, allowing the excess to drain from the bottom. From then on, the plant should be kept moist, not wet.

 

Upright Thunbergia

 

Thunbergia

 4” bag-$350.00 6” bag-$400.00 10” pot-$800.00
 They should be grown in a spot with full sun or very light shade, except in hot summer regions where they will require shade during the afternoon. In the garden, Thunbergias should be planted in humus rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil that has been supplemented with a generous amount of compost at planting time, or in a good quality potting soil if they are grown in planters. These vining plants do not tolerate drought well. A layer of mulch will help to retain soil moisture.
Any heavy pruning should be done early in the spring, before new growth begins.

 

Dracaena Reflexa

 Song of India

 

Song of India Var -4” bag- $300.00 6” bag-$400.00 10” bag-$ 800.00 8” pot- $600.00 10” pot- $800.00

Song of India Green- 6” bag- $400.00 10”bag- $800.00 8” pot- $450.00 10” pot- $800.00

 

A Dracaena Reflexa houseplant with solid dark green leaves does well in medium light. The Song of India and Song of Jamaica, with yellow and white stripes in their leaves, need bright indirect light. Direct sun burns the leaves of all varieties of Dracaena Reflexa.

 Ficus Benjamina

 

Green Island- 4”bag-$300.00, 6”bag-$400.00, 8” pot- $650.00, 10” pot- $800.00 14”-$1200.00 17”-$1,650.00

Ficus Var- 6”bag-$300.00, 10” bag- $650.00, 6”pot-$500.00 10” pot-  $750.00, 12”pot- $1,000.00, 14”Pot- $1,500.00, 17” pot- $2,000.00, 24”pot- $3,500.00

 You might know your ficus tree as a weeping fig. These common tropical plants are often sold for indoor use because they tolerate relatively low-light conditions, although they need full light for good growth. Ficus trees don’t take well to climate changes either, so, unless you live in a year-round mild climate, plan to keep your ficus indoors. Once you’ve found the right place for your ficus tree, leave it there as moving a ficus tree is one of the primary causes of leaf fall. Ficus invariably drop leaves when acclimating to new surrounding
 Acalypha
 4”- 300.00 6”-$350.00 10” pot- $1000.00

Acalypha will thrive with exposure to morning sun and dappled afternoon sun, however some pests such as whiteflies and aphids can be a hassle in wintering over an acalphya. Having no taproot, it takes them a few years to fully establish roots deep enough to go without some watering routine, so make sure young ones receive the benefit of a sprinkler system. Acalphya produce flower spikes that are sometimes quite exaggerated this flower can be propagated through cuttings, root division, and seed.

 

 

Sanseviera

Nerve plant

 

6”bag- $700.00, hanging pot- $750.00

 Fittonia is a lovely plant with delicately veined, deep green leaves. Although the most popular vein color is silvery white, you can also readily find fittonia with veins in pink, white, and green. They are available as trailing houseplants or low-growing creepers that are perfectly fit for terrariums or bottle gardens. As beautiful as they are, fittonia are difficult to raise as conventional houseplants; they require very high, constant humidity but cannot stand stagnant conditions. Fittonia also dislike strong, direct sunlight and will quickly suffer from burn.

 

Pilea microphylla

 

Artillery Fern

 

4”- $200.00, 6”bag- $250.00

 

Part of your artillery plant care includes keeping the soil moist, but not soaked. Water when the soil is dry to the touch. Fertilization every few weeks promotes growth.

 

Nephrolepis exaltata

 

Boston Fern

 

4”bag- $500.00

 

In their natural habitat these ferns will be provided small amounts of sunshine under trees, shaded. The best light conditions to provide is indirect sunlight, although a small amount of sunlight (when it’s not too hot) encourages growth.

 

Dypsis lutescens

 

Areca palm

 

6”pot- $1,500.00, 10”pot- $2,000.00, 14” pot- $3000.00, 17” pot- $4,500.00, 24” pot- $10.000.00

 

This palm likes bright indirect or curtain filtered sunlight. The more sunlight it receives the more yellow in the leaf and the more quickly they will grow.  In the wild small plants grow in the shade of many taller plants and cannot tolerate as much light as more mature plants.  Direct sun may burn the fronds. Keep the soil moist, drying out only a bit between waterings from spring through fall and empty standing water.  The fine roots will rot if left standing in water so provide a pot with lots of drainage holes and plenty of drainage material (pea gravel) at the bottom.

 Coleus
 Joseph Coat

 

6” bag- $400.00

 

Caring for coleus is just as easy. They need to be kept moist, especially newly planted coleus. Container plants also require more frequent watering than those grown in the garden. Although it’s not required, the plants can be given a boost of half-strength liquid fertilizer during their active growth in spring and summer. Coleus can be added to beds and borders for interest or grown in containers. They need fertile, well-draining soil and usually perform best in areas with partial shade, though many varieties can also tolerate sun.

There are over 200 species of jasmine, each with different characteristics. Some are evergreen, while some are deciduous. Some take the form of vines, while others are shrubs. Some Many varieties of jasmine require stakes to climb in order to grow strong and healthy. Place a tall stake or a trellis a few inches from the base of the jasmine, and gently wrap it around the stake as it grows. Eventually it will begin growing up the stake on its own. If you planted the jasmine next to a wall or fence, train it to grow upward until it begins growing on its own are so tender that they must be grown indoors, while others are frost hardy. Water jasmine from the bottom to keep from getting the leaves wet. The sun will burn the leaves if water droplets remain on them during the sunniest hours.

Dieffenbachia Wilson Delight- 10” pot- $1,500.00

 

The truth is that Dumb Canes are poisonous; however it rarely kills human or animal. All parts of the plant have lots and lots of microscope needle-shaped calcium oxalate crystals and when some unfortunate animal (or person) chows down, they end up with a painful and swollen mouth. Dieffenbachia’s need very little light. This is actually wrong, light shade is acceptable but nothing darker. They like a really good watering then to be left alone to dry out for a bit. This is one houseplant which probably won’t mind a routine watering regime.

 

Mansoa alliacea

 

Garlic Vine

 

4”bag- $300.00, 6”bag- $400.00, 10” bag- $600.00, 10” pot- $650.00

 

Mansoa alliacea is a vine with a moderate growth rate. It can be grown in containers and should be trimmed after the flowers are gone. Outdoors grown Mansoa alliacea should not be overly pruned as flower buds appear on new growth. By pruning away the vines to keep new growth in check, plants will become flowerless. When grown indoors, Mansoa alliacea need bright light and some direct sunlight to flower. Outdoors, plant the Mansoa alliacea in full sun position. Although the plant accepts half-shade, but positioning them in a totally shaded location, should be avoided. The lack of sunlight is leading to the development of foliage at the expense of flowering.

 

Spathoglottis plicata

 

Ground orchid

 

6” bag- $600.00, 8” pot- $850.00, 10” pot- $1,000.00

 Watering is an important concern when considering care for Spathoglottis. This plant needs its moisture, but can’t stand to have its roots constantly wet. Water the plant thoroughly, then allow the surface and top layer of the planting media to dry out before you water it again. In a protected area, it will probably need

 

Agave

 

Agave Green 10” pot- $600.00

Agave Blue 10” pot- 600.00, 14” pot- $1,500.00

 

Growing agave is easy if you plant the right variety in the right location. Agaves need full sun and gritty soil that percolates easily. They can even do quite well when potted but use an unglazed clay pot that will allow evaporation of excess moisture.

Water needs are moderate to light depending upon the heat of the season but the plants should be allowed to dry out before irrigation.

The agave plant contains several compounds with protective benefits. Agave contains saponins, which bind to cholesterol and can help lower overall cholesterol levels. Agave also contains inulin, a type of fiber that’s also a probiotic, or a beneficial type of bacteria. A serving of agave, as opposed to agave nectar, also supplies a good dose of fiber, and plenty of fiber can reduce the risk of constipation.

 Ravenala

 

Palm Travelers

 

10”pot- $3,000.00

 

The wonderful travelers palm trees require a lot of sunlight and only grow in tropical and sub-tropical climates. They thrive in well drained soil, with some fertilizer applied every 2 months or so. They need a fair amount of water but their roots should not be left standing in water. Great for landscapes but they get too big, too fast to have as a container or indoor palm. The traveler palm grows much the same way as the sago palm, it starts out it is just a bunch of leaves coming straight out of the ground. 

 

Polystichum munitum

 Sword fern

 

4” bag-$300.00, 6”pot- $450.00

 

Once established in the garden, caring for sword ferns is easy. They are drought resistant and usually don’t require much in the way of water, except during the first year after planting when they should be kept evenly moist.Sword fern plants will keep their foliage throughout winter and can be trimmed back in spring, if desired, though it’s usually better to only cut off dead foliage. Plants can also be divided in spring and transplanted to other areas of the garden. In addition to their graceful appearance, ease of planting and caring for sword ferns makes them great choices for the landscape. So for those looking to add interest and texture to the garden or fill in open areas, the sword fern plant may be just what the plant doctor ordered.

 

Conocarpus erectus

 

silver buttonwood

Price: 6”bag- $400.00, 10”pot- $800.00, 14” pot- $1,200.00

 

These plants are moderate to fast growers that prefer full to part sun. They’ll grow in part shade, too, but won’t be as full or as colorful. Since this plant is salt tolerant it’s perfectly suited for coastal landscapes. Add top soil or organic peat moss, mixed with composted cow manure to the hole when you plant. Trim to shape as needed, but avoid doing a hard pruning of more than 1/3 of the plant. Any hard pruning should be done in spring – late March or early April. Though this shrub is drought-tolerant once it’s established, regular irrigation will keep it lush and full. If nothing else, at least give it a good drink during dry spells.

 

Pandanus

 Screw pine

 

Pandanus Veitchii: 6” bag-$800.00, 10”bag- $1,000.00

Pandanus Amaryllifolious : 10” bag- $1,000.00

 

Pandanus thrive in dappled sunlight to direct sunlight. In the summer, non-acclimated plants should not be exposed to direct sunlight to prevent scorching. In the winter, provide as much light as possible.
Pandanus can be drought-tolerant, especially when they get a little bit older. However, plants with a regular supply of water are definitely healthier, with more attractive leaf coloration and vigor. In the winter, when the plant will likely go into dormancy, you can dramatically reduce the water.

 Liriope

 

Lilly Turf

 

Liriope green 4”bag-$300.00, 6”bag- $450.00

Liriope Variegated 4”bag-$300.00, 6” bag- $450.00

 

Liriope is a moderately drought-tolerant lush plant, requiring little maintenance to thrive. Regular weeding is required during the first year or two of the plant’s life, as liriope is somewhat slow to establish and weeds compete with the plant for water and soil nutrients. Space liriope plants about 12 inches apart and use to border a path or walkway, or plant on a sloping hillside for evergreen erosion control.

 Pentas

 

4”bag- $350.00, 6”bag- $450.00, 10”pot- $700.00

 

Pentas are low maintenance plants. Provided they get plenty of water, sunshine and heat, they will perform beautifully and reward you with an abundance of blooms. Cut deadhead pentas flowers to encourage more blooms. Young pentas plant care should include pinching off the stem ends to force a more compact plant.

 

Pennisetum

 

Fountain Grass

 

$200.00

 

Growing fountain grass is easy. As with most ornamental grasses, fountain grass is extremely adaptable. Care of fountain grass is easy as well. It’s sometimes helpful to cut back the foliage in the spring prior to growth.

Monkey Fiddle Var- 4”- $300.00, 6” bag- $400.00

 Devil’s backbone houseplant likes bright indirect sunlight. You can place the plant in direct sun, but give it a little protection from stinging hot rays in spring and summer. Water the plants when the top few inches of soil feel dry. Keep it only moderately moist, yet not soggy. The plant produces the best growth with a once per month fertilizer solution diluted by half. Devil’s backbone houseplant does not need to be fed in the dormant seasons of fall and winter.

 

 

Jatropha

 

Fine leaf-6”bag- $600.00, 10”bag- $800.00, 10” pot-$850.00, 12” pot- $1,000.00, 14” pot- $1,200.00

Dew Drop Var- 6”bag- $400.00, 10” bag- $600.00

 Duranta plants prefer rich organic soil that is somewhat loamy and drains well. It is especially important to keep soil light if you are planting in a container. Be sure that your container has plenty of drainage holes. Advertisement If planting in the ground, choose a location that receives full to part sun for best flowering display. Allow plenty of room for this tropical beauty to spread out.

 

 

Coccoloba Uvifera

 

Sea Grape

 

4” bag- $300.00, 6” bag- $600.00, 10” bag- $700.00, 10” pot- $800.00, 12” pot- $900.00, 14” pot- $1,000.00, 17”pot- $1,500.00

 While the sea grape plant is tolerant of salt, making it an ideal coastal plant, it will truly thrive in fertile, well-drained soil. The plant should be situated in a full sun exposure.
Sea grapes are propagated naturally via their seed, but this method does not give you any control over the gender or other characteristics of the tree. Taking a cutting from an existing plant may obtain a more predictable result than that obtained from seeded seedlings. Additional sea grape care cautions to water the plant routinely until well-established. Prune sea grape regularly to maintain its shape and remove dead branches.

 

 

Caesalpinia Pulcherrima

 Pride of Barbados, peacock flowers
 4” bag-$300.00, 6” bag-$400.00, 10”pot- $800.00

 

The soil for Pride of Barbados plants does not have to be especially fertile or high in organic matter. Poor sandy soils are fine for this plant. Pride of Barbados plants need a minimum of six to eight hours of direct sunlight each day. They grow successfully with as little as two hours of direct sunlight; however, they grow best and bloom more profusely in full sun. Container-grown plants should be placed in the same sunlight exposure as those grown in the ground.

Browallia Sapphire

 

6”bag- $450.00, 10” pot- $600.00, 14”pot- $1,200.00

 This little plant is not terribly fussy as long as it gets some protection from the bright midday sun. Watch for the usual pests and treat with horticultural soap as necessary. The plant is attractive to hummingbirds and some pollinators, so avoid poisonous pesticides. Browallia thrives where light is limited and will still produce its bright starry blooms. Try growing sapphire flower where soil is moist, such as near a water feature or at the edge of a rain garden. The plant needs diffused light to prevent it from burning. In cooler climates, Browallia planting should be in containers, where you can move them indoors as soon as temperatures get cooler. Use a good quality potting mix with some peat moss mixed in to help conserve moisture. Give the plant plenty of supplemental water when growing sapphire flower. They are not tolerant of drought conditions. When planting Browallia outside, leave at least a foot spread between plants.
 Canna lilly
 10” pot- $1,200.00

 Cannas can be planted outdoors in warm climates or containers in other areas. During spring, when planting of canna lily plant, wait until the threat of frost has passed. Groups of cannas should be planted about a foot or two apart. While technically they don’t have a top or bottom, most canna rhizomes can be planted horizontally with the eyes facing up. Cover the rhizomes with 3 to 6 inches of soil. Water well and apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture

 

 

Dianella Tasmanica

 

Tasman Flax Lily

 

10”pot- $1,800.00

 

This plant does well in well-drained soil located in areas with either sun or part shade, making it ideal for areas with shifting levels of sunshine.While flax lily can be killed back by frost, if your plant is well-established it will likely grow back from the roots once temperatures begin to warm back up. If you notice your established flax lilies have lots of dead leaves, or variegated leaves that have reverted to an all-green form, you can cut them down to the crown in late winter.

 

Phymatosorus grossus

 

Trinidad fern, Wart fern, Laua’e fern

 

6” bag- $300.00, 6”pot- $500.00, 8” pot- $800.00, 10”pot- $1000.00

 

The fronds emerge from creeping, black or brown-scaled rhizomes and are glossy, dark green to bright green, erect, oval to oblong in shape, and deeply pinnatifid with usually 2 to 10 pairs of pinnate lobes. On the undersides of the fertile fronds, there are typically 1 or 2 rows of rounded, reddish brown sori on either side of the midribs. Laua’e fern require moisture, warmth and shade to insure optimal growth. Cut fronds can last about a week for flower displays.

 

Coconut Tree

 

They grow in tropical areas with a lot of moisture and do not do well in places that can get to the freezing point.If it becomes dry they will need some supplemental watering.A bonus- they will grow in a variety of different soils but will need full sun as they mature. It’s fine if there’s only part sun when they are still small.

 

Livistona chinensis

 

Chinese palm

 

10” bag- $1500.00, 10” pot- $1800.00, 14” pot- 2000.00, 17” pot- $3000.00

 Potting soil used for palm plants should be well draining, and any container used for the plant should have ample drainage holes in the bottom. Soil should be moist at all times during the growing season, although it is essential to avoid over-saturation, which can lead to root rot. Allow the plant soil to dry out a little more in the winter than in the summer. A daily mist of water helps to keep humidity levels high. If frond tips become brown, the humidity is too low. A light fertilizer application from late winter through early fall helps fan palm plants remain vital. Spider mites like dusty foliage, so it is critical that fronds are wiped clean on a regular basis. If mites become a problem, use a soapy water mixture to control infestation.

 

 

Wodyetia bifurcata

 

Foxtail palm

 10” pot- $2000.00, 14” pot- $3000.00
 Justicia brandegeeana

shrimp

 

 4” bag- $300.00, 6” bag- $400.00

 It does best in loamy or sandy soil that is well drained. It doesn’t do well with wet feet. Well rooted plants are fairly drought tolerant, but like most tropicals, it thrives in high humidity. While they will grow in full sun to partial shade, growing shrimp plants where they receive morning sun is ideal. They need the sun to bring out the brightest colors and, yet, too much sun will cause the colors to fade too soon. Shrimp plant care should also include frequent trimming to encourage fuller growth and more bloom. Once the first bracts appear, a shrimp plant will bloom for months and then will rest for a short time before blooming again. The best time to trim and prune is when blooming begins to slow.
