Leaf almost entirely white with small central green flame; pale bronzy salmon fls dangle from the tall stems. Best grown in very bright light in a cool greenhouse in intense climates as can burn in the heat of the deep South. But in zones with smaller numbers this not only performs in the winter greenhouse but forms a ...
Yellow out angled, nodding bellflowers with ochre clappers accent this vigorous "Flowering Maple" with soft fresh green leaves on self branching stems. Possibly a more reliably summer blooming selection of England's 'Moonchimes.' Has the reputation among our customers as being one of the few in this group of Hibiscus c...
Erect woody stems festooned with spectacularly big nodding blossoms of festive tangerine; this "Giant Chime Flowering Maple" can be kept as a modest heavily flowering pot plant, or encouraged to easily reach 8' --thus perfect for training into standards or for backgrounds in the deep south. Blooms for a very long perio...
Reiter hybrid of A. megapotamicum with strongly held laterally weeping branches perfectly displaying the charming show of ranks of dangling flared large yellow blossoms highlighted by darker-toned throat, as long as not exposed to considerable warmth year round. Perfect for hanging baskets, most impressive in windowbox...
"Bottlebrush Bromo" Compact, rapidly-clustering urns with erect bottlebrush spikes studded with clove-shaped reddish bracts tipped with electric magenta petals. Easy house plant for the windowsill.
"Popcorn Plant" Short outcurving leathery stiff rosettes present short popcorn inflorescences of bright red bracts with red-violet flowers--and these are very very impressively colored. Excellent house or greenhouse subject; easy to bloom if given bright light. Price reflects its refusal to quickly offset like most oth...
A very bold upright hybrid with tight clustered flowers of pink green & russett; rapidly clustering / offsetting to form a soft porcupine hemisphere. Best grown with the high light of Tillandsia culture--indeed until it blooms, quite typically mistaken for a terrestial Tillandsia. Quite popular among the topiary design...
Elliptical leaves ranked on arched, cascading stems terminating with clusters of upright flowers: each maroon cupped calyx holding a blood red "Lipstick Vine" blossom--typically blooming only once a year; this low price reflects that these are small starters.
"Variegated Himalayan Lipstick Plant" The leathery glossy foliage emerges with ivory-white striations which fades with time into bright lime brushings--striking with the intense small red-purple flowers. Easily grown small statured species preferring cooler temperatures to produce the best variegation. While most Aesch...
Very compact, multibranched Madagascar native with slim, spotted leaves, with creamy soft-spined margins, interweaving to form mini-thickets; yellow apricot flowers with green rims appear during late fall. Excellent windowsill or dish garden subject; very successful under light where leaves typically become suffused wi...
"Christmas Candles" From wide fleshy rosettes arise spikes with large coral-red tubular flowers mid-winter. Handsome. Called "Soap Aloe" to indicate the practical use of the richly sappy succulent leaves.
Remarkable "Frosted Peruvian Lily" The elegant clusters of tubular cinnamon flowers are the final over-the-top gesture by this upright stemmed plant with such brilliantly white tipped foliage. The gradually widening clusters of this most showy Andean have proven winter hardy here in Zone 6 with adequate winter mulch. B...
"Christmas Clover" has deep maroon leaves accented by masses of long-lasting ivory popcorn flowerheads lasting all winter-- thus also called "False Globe Amaranth." Old favorite for its prolific winter display; but newly popular for its ease of culture in adding a quick splash of unabashed purple to summer container ga...
Wine veined magenta Hibiscus blossoms, everblooming if given full sun and good fertilizer, along the upright maroon toned stems cloaked with attractive deeply fringered foliage. Most attractive in containters.
Crayon red spathed "Flamingo Flower" with large waxy green-edged spathes over the heart-shaped foliage. Excellent conservatory subject. Also works well in the house. This year we have smaller and less expensive plants for growing on.
Striking spineless fast growing herbaceous shrublet from South Africa which flourishes in an exposed, even dry, setting where it will produce Acanthus type blossoms ranging from blue through mauve to pink. A new candidate for summer urns, windowboxes, and mixed containers as well as a good performer in the winter green...
Out arching slim stems cascade under the weight of the soft petite leaves; terminal clusters of lovely violet blossoms fading to old rose magenta. This South African reaches a peak of bloom in late fall; the habit is far more lateral than most of the Barlerias we offer.
(thick stemmed/scandent] Martin Johnson hybrid with very wide fabuous pebbled leaves with pale branching veins and fine reddish hairs; unusually beautiful & unique sometimes incorrectly seen as 'Antholes.' A spectacular specimen in the conservatory, yet quite a remarkable addition to a shady summer windowbox or urn as ...
(rex/rz) Small saturated easily grown clumping mound of beautifully marbled mahogany black leaves with pecan tones, highlighted with bright pewter brushings amplified by the dramatic cherry red underleaves. Amazingly vigorous and undemanding.
(trailing/scandant) The "Grape Leaf Begonia" with big glossy sharply lobed leaves shingling the scandent stems; enormous pendant flower heads in late winter are most impressive. Easy. Unmatched for a substantial hanging basket statement. Given support (does not need encouragement) this clean cut beauty can easily cover...
(cane) Traditional "Angel Wing Begonia" w/ deeply lobed leaves dotted silver; pendulous salmon rose flower clusters. We do not ship the unlobed clone--this clone originally received from Logee's is similar or identical to 'Sophie Cecile' according to several California collectors.
(rz) "Beefsteak Beg." Waxy lurtrous kidney shaped rounded leaves reddish beneath. Easy and reliable and beautiful AND the one probably flourishing on your grandmother's windowsill. This most ordered of all the Begonias we offer is an heirloom hybrid of the Mexican species manicata x hydrocotifolia.
(s) Small featured shrubby hybrid with pink-toned fabuously felted wing-shaped leaves, rouged a flirtin' red beneath; recurring pearl fading to pale pink flowers with red beards, the male flowers somewhat serrate edged; forms a tight cluster of short stems beautifully foliaged, given good light and organic fertilizer. ...
(trailing/scandent) "Mini Grapeleaf" glossy grass-green leaves on strong scandant vine terminating in clusters of shell pink flowers. Also offered as B. procumbens on West Coast (we do sometimes offer the true rose flowered procumbens/limmingheana in this listing below). This brightly cheerful winner readily forms clin...
Much-branched low-grower with lovely angelwing foliage strewn with silver. The very showy shell pink spring blossoms repeat when given ample light. Easy beautiful basket plant; excellent choice for the windowsill.
(sh) Sprays of small white fragrant flowers; glossy ovate leaves spaced on a big boned gal of a specimen plant. Needs elbow room to flourish, but the subtle sweet scents are ample payment from this Caribbean shrub (even though it might very well require a seplasiary to detect the scent unless grown in an enclose habita...
(c) Bright red flower (blushed salmon) clusters on stout short stems flanked with thick emerald angelwing leaves revealing red laquered undersides. While a compactly statured Cane, not a true dwarf. We consider this the most dependably performing cane Begonia. Easy to bloom, easy to grow.
Interesting selection of the "Cross Vine" with tangerine to salmon large rumpet flowers in showy clusters. Although not likely to be evergreen, this selection might be z6 hardy. Showy clusters of trumpets mid winter in our cool house.

Jerry Raack's striking hybrid of `Fantasia' with euphemiae rubra: spotted reddish purple tall slim urns with each leathery leaf arched at the very tip; deeply arching long inflorescence with bracts and blossoms of pink, violet and ochre. A most impressive specimen in time; yet of easy culture.
"Queen's Tears" Narrow silver-bronze leathery leaves overlap tightly to form slender vases from which arch "weeping" flowerstalks with rose, green & violet "tear" flowers like "Indoor Oats." Tolerant of adverse conditions--always popular as a basic houseplant because the lovely inflorescences appear without fail every ...
