(Turk's-cap)

Native to Mexico, this warm-climate variety of Turk’s cap hibiscus is a fast-growing evergreen shrub with unbranched stems, lance-shaped leaves, and red flowers that do not open, but instead unfurl just enough to take the shape of a fluted bell, hence the common name Cardinal’s hat. The flowers are pendent on long stalks, and a thriving plant has at least a few flowers from spring through fall, with a heavy flush of bloom in spring and autumn. It is an evergreen in frost-free regions, deciduous in...

('Ohi'a Lehua, Springfire Ohi'a, Vunga)

A shrubby ohi'a, 'Springfire' bears spectacular clusters of fiery red pompon-like flowers atop attractive, rounded plants. Though considered compact relative to standard ohi'a, it still becomes a sizable, upright shrub when mature.

Behold one of the Hawaiian Islands' most magnificent native plants! Ohi'a is a highly variable broadleaf evergreen. Its habit varies depending on the environment; in arid mountainous habitats it grows as a low, prostrate shrub but in lush volcanic tropical rainforests...

(Dwarf Pohutukawa, Kermadec Pohutukawa, Tahiti Kermadec Pohutukawa)

The exceptionally small 'Tahiti' is a very compact form of this typically large tree. It blooms continuously, but most heavily from late winter to spring, producing clusters of pretty, puffy orange-red blooms.

A rare broadleaf evergreen tree from New Zealand, the Kermadec pohutukawa bears pompon-like scarlet flowers that look very much like those of the New Zealand Christmas tee (Metrosideros excelsa). Kermadec pohutukawa is native only to Raoul Island (in the Kermadec Islands group),...

(Banana Shrub)

Banana shrub is a broadleaf evergreen with lovely, fragrant springtime flowers. The foliage itself is reason enough to grow this shrub. The new leaves of this China native are soft, fuzzy and brown, then mature to an attractive green. From mid-spring until early summer, cup-shaped, tan flowers with maroon edges bloom, releasing a banana-like scent. The fragrance is most intense on warm, windless days. Flowering can recur sporadically in summer.

Plant banana shrub in a rich, acidic soil that is...

(Banana Shrub)

Skinner's banana shrub, with alluringly scented springtime flowers, is a worthwhile broadleaf evergreen shrub, arguably superior to the common banana shrub (M. figo). The foliage itself is reason enough to grow this shrub, as the new leaves on this Chinese native plant are soft, fuzzy and brown and mature to an attractive green. In mid-spring, cup-shaped creamy-yellow colored flowers with maroon edges open, releasing a banana-like scent. Flowering continues well into summer, and a few blossoms...

They are tropical or subtropical grasses that are clump forming, may reach up to 12 feet tall,5 feet wide, have a medium green leaf with a prominent white colored mid-rib. The tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, and drought. Some species are used for ornamental plantings as accent plants in the landscape, as a screen, as a hedge, in pots, and in dried flower arrangements. Some species are known to product large...

(Giant Silvergrass)

A slow-growing, very tall-maturing perennial grass, the giant silvergrass is not foremost known for use in gardens, but as a potential biofuel source. Giant silvergrass is sterile (doesn't produce seeds), the result of genetically crossing Miscanthus sacchariflorus and M. sinensis. This hybrid first occurred naturally where both species existed in the same landscape. While the growth of the underground rhizome roots is slow, the above-ground canes and leaves of this warm-season...

(Blooming Wonder Silvergrass, Eulalia, Japanese Silvergrass)

Compared to other cultivars, Blooming Wonder silver grass blooms earlier, with more flower heads and demonstrates increased winter cold hardiness. It's a clump-forming grass that originates from eastern Asia and has a graceful, dense, clumping habit. Its long, fine blades are medium green and turn a golden wheat color in the autumn. In midsummer, plants produce many stems topped with feathery, ivory-silvery plumes that soften and curl as they dry. These remain attractive throughout winter.
