The thatched leaf stems of zombie palm are lined with long, vicious spines that are said to be used as voodoo doll needles. This unusual, dryland palm is clump-forming and native to the Caribbean island of HispaƱola, which houses the independent states of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Wild populations are not common but typically found growing along dry, forested slopes and ridges. On occasion, specimens can be found in moister, lowland sites.

The many upright trunks of zombie palm are...

This ground-dwelling tropical orchid is grown for its fall and winter display of fragrant, colorful, strikingly patterned flowers. It is native to mild, upland rainforests of Brazil, Peru and Bolivia.

Clusters of pleated, lance-shaped, bright green leaves arise from the cone-shaped "pseudobulbs" of this evergreen perennial. In fall or winter, mature pseudobulbs produce long stalks, each crowned with clusters of four or five waxy, hyacinth-scented blooms. Each flower has a fan of five lance-shaped,...
