Crinum japonicum shima-ire
Stock Number: 51152
Large clone with bright central banded variegation on each ( broad fleshy leaf held in a crown of foliage above the long necked stem); R. Bennett's excellent clone which presents impressively fragrant blossoms--these immense heads of tubular ivory flowers are best initiated by letting the old mature bulb dry enough dur...

Crinum St. Christopher [hyb]
Stock Number: 51032
"Tulip Crinum" Fragrant snowwhite tulip shaped-cupped flower clusters over compact vases of fleshy evergreen leaves. We cannot categorically testify that the lovely blossoms reliably appear on St. Christopher's Day when grown in Ohio; we have received reports that customers have bloomed this in a sunny window with regu...

Cryptanthus bivittatus Le Rey
Stock Number: 53297
Light green stars with violet pink edges repeated with purple and lilac interior stripes. A considerable beauty always a favorite among collectors as well as designers of distinctive terrarium groupings. Very similar to 'Novistar'; more petite and more vividly colored than 'Pink Starlite'; a new star in Fairy Garden de...

Cryptanthus bivittatus Pink Starlite
Stock Number: 52303
A vibrant pink and white to cream striped beauty. As with others in this group, perfect in any terrarium design--although this cultivar is so dramatically variegated as to become a stunning focal point in any design--especially in Fairy Garden combinations. Few plants so dramatically variegated are as easy to grow succ...

Cryptanthus bivittatus Ruby
Stock Number: 52067
A C. bivitattus with the vibrant color of dark ruby red. One of the most popular at the greenhouses always. As with others in this easily grown group of "Earthstars," perfect in any terrarium design.

Cryptanthus Black Mystic [hyb]
Stock Number: 52070
Wide starry rosette of undulating chocolate-purple cardboard leaves (of zonatus blood) with dramatic platinum bars. Showy large hybrid for wardian case; although always reliable as a houseplant as it tolerates less than perfect humidity levels.

Cryptanthus bromelioides [hort]
Stock Number: 53362
Bright glossy bronze sheened upright rosettes of elegantly arched leathery fleshy leaves mimic a dwarfed pineapple. Readily offsets to form an impressive large hemisphere as matures, bringing it the nomination for best windowsill performance. This clone not the spiny Brazilian type.
$4.00
Cryptanthus Cloud Cover
Stock Number: 53246
Dark colored fosteriana/zonatus habit with glorious zoning of rosy verdigris and chocolate blush toned deep bronze leaves dusted scrufty gray in perfect light. Odd dusky giant; becomes quite large.
$10.00
Cryptanthus colnagoi Red Form
Stock Number: 53397
Open rosette of quite long armed ribbon leaves of thick leathery texture of rose hued green dramatically bordered a ruby red, turning purplish in full sun. Unusual habit. Needs full sun to maintain remarkable coloration. A disinclination to easily offset results in a elevated price.
$25.00
Cryptanthus hybridus Elaine
Stock Number: 53336
A larger grower than many hybrids. This magnificent plant has almost iridescent coloration on the newer dusky toned richly chevroned leaves, each leathery dramatic leaf margined in dusky pink tones. Always a bold subject in the design of a wardian case; always an especially rich color experience when grown under lights...

Cryptanthus hybridus It
Stock Number: 52079
The reverse of the famous Cryptanthus 'Ti,' with rose-toned cream & orange stripes on the edge of each glossy leaf. Bright pink sometimes fades to white after time.

Cryptanthus hybridus Ti
Stock Number: 52086

Cryptanthus Marion Oppenheimer [hyb]
Stock Number: 52315
Leaves of rich sage green with very showy bright pink stripes in compact congested rosettes--unique and beautiful--which slowly but steadily form perfect hemispheres of color in the terrarium. Grows too slowly to compete with others; so locate carefully. Collectors agree that this is indeed the most stunningly beautifu...

Cryptanthus nubicola [hort]
Stock Number: 52081
"Cloud Plant" Lovely dwarf statured species with masses of hazy-pink blushed slim leaves in quite flat profiled rosettes gradually offsetting from the center after blooming; a natural for the small terrarium. This has quickly become a basic in Fairy Garden designs. Avoid deep pots as the roots remain quite shallow.
$4.75
Cryptanthus Old Gold
Stock Number: 52082
Very wide golden-green leaves flecked with silver crystal forming a wide low rosette. Easy as a windowsill plant, magnificent as a basal plant in a large terrarium where it will produce lovely white "hidden" flowers.
$5.50
Cryptanthus Snow Goose
Stock Number: 53374
Wide dramatic big starry rosettes evenly frosted silvery gray (one might even suggest this to be a feuillemorte tone!)--developing a scrufty surface in high light and good exposure. Requires far less food than most geese.
$12.50
Cryptanthus undulatus
Stock Number: 52087
Very compact species with cardboardish leaf edges quite ruffled; eventually forms mounding tuffets.
$4.25

Stock Number: 52093
Erect rosette with coppery leathery leaves mottled, gray-green reverse; greenish flowers. Cryptanthus beuckeri x Billbergia nutans.

Cryptbergia rubra [hyb]
Stock Number: 52092
Beautiful pot plant of dark maroon-red laquered curved leaves tightly overlapping to form fountains of moderate size, backed with silver tones. Hybrid of Cryptanthus bahianus x Bilbergia nutans. Recommended. Low growing heirloom bromel always reliable as an easily grown houseplant, quite happy on any windowsill. A grea...

Ctenanthe pilosa Golden Mosaic
Stock Number: 54342
Fanned clusters of large rigidly oblong leaves, each most dramatically splashed in creamy lime, angled on stiff geometric stalks. Formerly offered as C. glabra 'Giant Splashed'--this can reach considerable dimensions in time.

Cuphea aequipetala
Stock Number: 42105
"Mexican Loosestrife" Slender arched stems, ranked w/ slim leaves, topped with petite lilac and green tubular blossoms with deep purple petals opposite four wider rosetoned petals. Height of bloom mid-winter. Easily grown also as a semi-aquatic. More a curiosity (and potential genetic pool for hybridizers) than an impo...

Cuphea David Verity [hyb]
Stock Number: 41927
Marvelous step upward from the traditional "Firecracker Plant" (C. ignea/platycentra) with bright red tubular flowers on dark foliaged vigorous plants which translates as the ultimate Hummingbird favorite in our gardens here. This high performer is the best choice for urns, containers, and large baskets (especially if ...
$5.00
Cuphea hyssopifolia
Stock Number: 40169
"Hawaiian Heather" everblooming lavender flowers on an upright outcurved compact bush. Good for large terrariums, dish gardens and small windowsills. As the nursery trade basically grows only the 'Yatabusa' selection, this old favorite has basically disappeared from the general market.
$4.75
Cuphea hyssopifolia Linda Downer
Stock Number: 41376
Compact laterally-branching cultivar of "Dwarf Hawaiian Heather" selected at Downer's Greenhouses here in Ohio with sprays of pure white flowers; the perfect companion for the purple flowered cultivars. Good flowering indoor bonsai subject and quite popular in summertime urns. Still a favorite for the larger terrarium ...
$5.00
Cuphea hyssopifolia Palest Pinkie
Stock Number: 41333
A delicate color selection of the reliable "Hawaiian Heather" (a native of Guatemala, naturally) with very pale lilac ever blooming flowers on arched stems. A random seedling originally found in our greenhouses here, and still in great demand.
$7.00
Cuphea hyssopifolia Yatsubusa
Stock Number: 42209
Foliage larger, lilac flowered color more intense than the more elegant 'Compacta', yet keeps lateral low growth habit. As this more laterally angled woody stemed selection grows rapidly, it will always appeal to bonsai designers.
