(Climbing Palas, Flame-of-the-forest)

Three-parted leaves and showy orange-red flowers that look like bird beaks are the two chief ornamental highlights of the climbing palas. This woody vine (liana) is native to the forests of Southeast Asia, from eastern India and southern China into Thailand, Laos and southern Burma. It quickly colonizes sunny, open areas clambering across the ground or growing upward on the trunks of trees. Climbing palas grows from a plump, yam-like root that is yellow and contains mild toxins, often used in traditional...

(Brazilwood, Indian Savin Tree, Peachwood)

Lustrous dark green foliage is the perfect background to see the pretty, long-lived yellow blossoms of peachwood in autumn and winter. An evergreen, frost-tender small tree with an interestingly rounded form, it is native to limestone soils of eastern Central America and islands of the Caribbean. Its stout trunks and branches have a nice corky bark that has scattered spiny thorns. Its heartwood is finely grained and tough, sometimes favored for making musical instruments.

Leathery and rich green,...

(Bird-of-Paradise Bush)

Delicate and absolutely striking in bloom, this tough desert shrub is a chameleon in the dry garden and equally good in the tropical border. It is native to Argentina and Uruguay where it thrives in dry washes and rocky hill country, just like its North American kin. Bird-of-paradise bush is so well adapted to the low desert it has naturalized in Texas and is even hardy across most of the American Southeast. This open upright shrub has a feathery appearance, with its light pinnate leaves, and is...

(Congo Pea, Gungo Pea)

A plant of many uses, Congo pea is grown in developing countries as a source of food, fiber, animal forage and green manure. It’s a shrubby, short-lived perennial able to thrive in drier locations due to its extensive, deep taproot. Like many old crops, Congo pea no longer exists in the wild. It has been long-cultivated in Africa but is believed to have originated from India and introduced to Africa thousands of years ago via old trade routes.

The fast growing and free branching Congo pea...

(Angel Wings, Caladium, Fancy-leaved Caladium)

Caladium is a tender tropical perennial plant grown from tubers. Native to South America, this plant is grown for its large, showy, colorful leaves that can be variegated in a variety of colors including green, red, rose, pink, white, silver and bronze.

As a rule, caladiums should be planted in partial sun to partial shade and fertile, moist, well-drained soil. Warm soil temperatures are essential as cool soil temperatures cause plants to stop growing and encourage rot. Fancy-leaved cultivars...

(Aaron Caladium, Angel Wings, Fancy-leaved Caladium)

The Aaron caladium is a tender tropical perennial plant grown from tubers. This cultivar is not among the showiest, but it does have a very obvious heart-shaped leaf that is primarily white with edges that wane to dark green. It is considered a "fancy leaf" type with its more delicate heart-shaped leaf.

Grow 'Aaron' in part sun to part shade in fertile, moist, well-drained soil. The more sun this cultivar receives, the more moisture that should be provided to the roots. All caladiums resent...

(Angel Wings, Arno Nehrling Caladium, Fancy-leaved Caladium)

Caladium is a tuberous tropical perennial grown for its large colorful leaves. The special 'Arno Nehrling' displays smottled leaves of white and green (often with a majority of white) with intense red veins that are nestled with a little pink.

As a general rule, caladiums prefer part sun to part shade and fertile moist soil with good drainage. They resent cool moist soil temperatures which can encourage tuber rot. Large fancy-leaved cultivars should never be exposed to full sun as this can...
