(Brasiletto, Yellow Copperpod, Yellow Jacaranda)

Frilly, fern-like foliage and bright yellow summertime flowers are ornamental highlights of the yellow copperpod. Also called brasiletto, this semi-evergreen tree is native to southern Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. It develops a picturesque, dome-like canopy. Compared to the Asian-native copperpod (Peltophorum pterocarpum), this species is more cold hardy, sturdier in wind, has more leaflets on each feathery leaf, and overall is less flamboyant of a tree.

Leaves are large and feathery...

(Copperpod, Yellow Flame Tree, Yellow Jacaranda)

A fast-growing tree that develops a broad, umbrella-domed canopy, the copperpod is prized for its grape-scented golden flowers that seem to glow in sunlight. It's usually evergreen, but briefly drops some foliage in the height of the tropical dry season. Copperpod is native to tropical southern and southeastern Asia, from Sri Lanka to the Philippines, and to the north coast of Australia. It has rather brittle wood and a shallow root system.

Newly emerging leaves are coppery-red and fuzzy. As...

(Villous Fountaingrass)

Villous fountaingrass is a tender perennial ornamental grass usually grown as an annual. In summer to early autumn, feathery cream flower heads emerge from clumps of bright green, arching foliage. This deciduous grass is native to the mountains of tropical Africa, where it bakes in full sun.

Grow this medium-sized grass in moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Where it overwinters, cut back the dead top growth in early spring. Villous fountaingrass often self-sows prolifically...

(Hammock Viper's-tail, Wild Allamanda)

Wild allamanda's twining stems and glossy yellow-green leaves are a pretty backdrop to the cheerful light yellow flowers from spring to fall. A shrubby evergreen, this frost-tender vine is native to Tropical America, from Florida and the Caribbean islands southward into Latin America. Its foliage is oval, simple (no lobes), glossy and yellowish-green. Sometimes, but rarely, the leaves may be matte with tiny hairs. Anytime sunshine and warmth is plentiful, the light yellow, trumpet-like blossoms appear...

(Pentas)

Pentas are tropical plants native to Africa, Arabia and Madagascar. The genus comprises 34 to 40 species of perennials, biennials and shrubs. Most species bear beautiful clusters of colorful flowers and are grown as bedding plants. They are in Rubiaceae, the same plant family as other popular tropicals such as Ixora, Gardenia and Coffee.

Borne in pairs or triads along upright or lax stems, the oval to lance-shaped, evergreen leaves are typically grass green. Domed or flat-topped...

(Starcluster)

With scarlet-red, dome-shaped blossom clusters, the Athena Petite Scarlet starcluster continues the reputation of being a butterfly and hummingbird magnet in the garden. This tropical, shrubby, evergreen perennial that is often grown as a bedding annual in frost-affected climates has a smaller mature size. As a hybrid, it was derived from everblooming African or Arabian starcluster species with dark green, lance-shaped leaves.

Heat and drought tolerant once established, Egyptian starclusters...
