(Banana, Silk Banana)

Delicious dessert bananas, the Silk AAB Group includes upright, fast growing, ornamental tropical herbs (not trees) with large, flat, green leaves and fruits of a distinctive acidy, apple-like and sweet flavor. They are plump, round-tipped fruits that will have split skins once fully ripe with white flesh. Broadly speaking, these hybrid triploid bananas are readily affected by Panama disease, usually to their detriment. They are pantropically grown, only surpassed in cultivation by Cavendish AAA...

(Banana, Edible Banana)

Edible banana is an upright, fast-growing, tree-like perennial with large flat leaves and long pendulous flower spikes. The flowers give rise to a large crop of edible banana fruits in hands on this native of Southeastern Asia and northern Australia. This large herbaceous perennial forms a clump of plants, each flowering and fruiting only once before dying.

Banana plants love warm fertile soils with consistent moisture. Full sun exposures are best, a long growing season is required to set the...

This edible banana, ‘Little Prince,’ is a very dwarf selection of a species native to Southeast Asia and northern Australia. It is an upright, fast-growing herb (not a tree) with large flat leaves and long pendent flower spikes. The flowers give rise to a large crop of edible banana fruits in hands. This herbaceous perennial forms a clump of plants, each flowering and fruiting only once before it dies. The plant continually sends up new shoots, thus perpetuating the production of hands on more stalks.

The banana cultivar, ‘Zebrina’, is an upright, fast-growing, ornamental tropical tree-like herb with large, flat, green leaves that have stripes of maroon. The long, pendent flowers give rise to a cluster of small, inedible, maroon-colored fruits. This decorative, herbaceous perennial forms a clump of plants, each flowering and fruiting only once before dying, but it keeps on sending up new shoots to make new plants.

(Lady Flower)

Sometimes called a pink-flowering summer poinsettia, Queen Sirikit satinbush bears small starry yellow flowers that are overpowered by showy light pink, rose-edged modified leaves. Upright, multi-branched and mop-headed in its bushy canopy, it is a hybrid semi-evergreen shrub that is tender to frost. Named after the queen of Thailand, 'Queen Sirikit' is the result of crossing the west African Mussaenda erythrophylla with a selection of the Filipino Mussaenda philippica.

It often becomes fully deciduous in winter when dry soil and cool temps reign.

The elongated, tapering oval leaves are medium green to yellow-green and tend to look weeping on the slender branches. Deeply veined,...

This heat-loving evergreen shrub is highly valuable to landscapes in arid inland climates where extreme temperatures are common. It is native to the hot interior plains of Australia where droughts can be lengthy. This is a low-growing shrub, usually wider than tall. The leaves are the size of a fingernail, toothy-edged and medium-green. This species can be short-lived and declines at an average age of 5 to 6 years, but this is variable depending on location.

This shrub blooms heavily in early...

(Davis Slender Myoporum, Slender Myoporum)

Selected for its natural vigor and low profile, 'Davis' is an excellent evergreen groundcover for erosion control. It is highly recommended for arid climates where extreme temperatures are common. Its parent species is native to the hot, interior plains of Australia where periods of extended drought are common. This variety was selected at the University of California at Davis and introduced in 1989. It is a low-growing shrub and can grow much wider than tall. The narrow, lance-shaped leaves are...

(Putah Creek Myoporum, Slender Myoporum)

This vigorous, heat-loving evergreen shrub is more lush than its parent species, making it a better choice for landscapes in arid inland climates where extreme temperatures are common. The species is native to the hot, interior plains of Australia where periods of extended drought are common. This is a low-growing shrub and much wider than tall. The leaves of 'Putah Creek' are two thirds larger than those of the species but have the same toothy edges. These plants can occasionally be short-lived,...
