(Britton's Wild Petunia, Mexican Petunia)

The everblooming 'Dwarf Katie' is a compact Mexican petunia ideal for container plantings and summer beds. It produces many pale violet-blue, trumpet-shaped flowers with that are five-lobed and ruffled at the edges. These appear against pretty dark green, lance-shaped foliage from late spring to fall. In the far south they may continue to flower through winter. This common tender perennial is actually a vigorous evergreen subshrub native to South America, though it has naturalized in parts of the...

(Britton's Wild Petunia, Mexican Petunia)

Mexican petunia is a vigorous evergreen subshrub native to South America and naturalized in parts of the southeastern United States. 'Katie' is a slightly shorter cultivar that produces ruffled, five-lobed, pale violet-blue trumpet-flowers from late spring to fall, attracting butterflies. The arching, lance-shaped, puckered foliage is densely borne on fleshy, hardened stems.

Mexican petunia prefers full sun or partial shade and moderately fertile soil, and tolerates both dry and wet conditions....

(Britton's Wild Petunia, Mexican Petunia)

The cultivar 'Purple Showers' is an upright, floriferous selection of Mexican petunia, a heat tolerant, evergreen subshrub native to the American tropics. From spring to fall (and in winter in frost-free climates), it produces masses of funnel-shaped, ruffled, five-lobed, lavender-purple flowers on erect maroon stems. Butterflies love the flowers. The arching, lance-shaped, puckered leaves are paired along the stems. Dark green, they may become pewter-tinted in hot sun. Although sterile (not producing...

(Hispañolan Palmetto)

Bearing bold colorful fan-shaped fronds atop a stout trunk, this Caribbean native is one of the most imposing and ornamental palmettos. Slowly forming a single-trunked, round-headed palm of medium height, it is essentially a slightly larger version of cabbage palm (Sabal palmetto).

The immense, bluish green, evergreen fronds are divided into numerous long, narrow, blade-like segments. The fronds are borne on long, straight or slightly arching stems ("petioles"). The upper trunk of older...

(Puerto Rican Hat Palm, Puerto Rican Palmetto)

With its immense evergreen fronds and massive gray trunk, this medium-sized, slow growing palm is among the noblest members of the genus Sabal. It is a rare native of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, where its fronds were traditionally used for basketmaking, hats and other woven goods.

Borne in a dense rounded crown, the bold, bright green, often blue-tinged fronds are deeply divided into long sword-shaped segments. Long white filaments fringe the edges of the segments. The fronds...

(Bay-leaf Palm)

Beautiful and distinctive, this slender-trunked, medium to tall palm is especially noteworthy for its immense fan-shaped fronds, whose pale undersides shimmer in the landscape. It is native to coastal rainforests in Trinidad and from southeastern Mexico to Colombia.

Bright green above and silvery beneath, the evergreen fronds are deeply divided into approximately 60 sword-shaped segments that radiate like the ribs of a parasol. The segments often arch downward, creating a fountain effect. The...

(Mexican Sabal Palm, Texas Palmetto)

With large, fan-shaped leaves atop a straight trunk criss-crossed by the lingering bases of spent leaves, the Texas palmetto has a striking presence. A slow-growing plant with a thick trunk and seemingly robust canopy of fronds, it is native from the southern tip of Texas southward to El Salvador.

The fronds are large and fan-shaped, with deep incisions. Ranging in color from yellow-green to very dark green, the canopy of fronds is usually rounded and massive atop the straight, ringed, grayish-tan...

(Miami Palmetto)

Closely related to Sabal etonia, this shrubby palm from Southeast Florida may be extinct in the wild. Plants bear four to six umbrella-sized, fan-shaped, evergreen fronds on long, stout, erect or inclined stems ("petioles"), forming a chest-high clump. The yellowish green fronds are deeply divided into long, sword-shaped, gracefully arching segments that radiate like the spokes of a parasol. The trunk is subterranean, protecting it from fire. The small fragrant ivory flowers appear in late...
