Variegated pineapple needs sunlight and a moist, well drained soil. Full sun promotes the light pink blushing on the leaves, although it is faint or simply not present. It loves humidity and moisture, but soggy...

(Curagua, Pineapple)

A close relative of the commercial pineapple, curagua is distinguished by its rosette of stiff, smooth, slender red-bronze leaves and its pretty inedible fruit. This evergreen terrestrial bromeliad is from northern South America. Throughout the growing season it bears purple-white flowers and small, red, pineapple-like fruits on a stalk that arises from the center of the leaf rosette.

Curagua needs well-drained soil and full to partial sun. Insufficient sunlight will result in dull green rather...

Long, stiff grayish green leaves lined in sharp spines, looking and piercing skin like curving swords. Healthy two-year old plants send up a tall, slender flower stalk from the center of the leaf rosette in spring's warmth. Atop this stalk is a rounded mass...

(Harmony Anemone)

The Harmony series of anemones are tender perennials that are usually grown as spring annuals. The fine foliage forms small clumps in spring and is topped by large poppy-like flowers in shades of red, blue, white or pink (depending on the cultivar) accented with dark centers. A mix is also available. These hybrids have a dwarf stature and bright colors which herald in spring.

Happiest when planted in a semi-shady spot, Harmony anemones prefer rich, loamy soils and even moisture. The foliage will...
