Handsome terrarium plant, appearing then disappearing, the reap...

Striking heads of maroon toned scarlet flowers with petite lime yellow eyes--while not the most vigorous cultivar, valued for it adds a lot of visual heat to a windowbox.
Distinctive discovery by Grant of a sport of the heirloom 'Flava' with its heads of sulphur yellow flowers fading to saffron pink, quite effective against this sport's leaves slashed with bright gold and splashed with cream. Showy--but be sure to remove all reversions. Greg claims to have scaled the wall of a nunnery t...
"Golden Lantana" Bright yellow-zoned leaves are the perfect foil for the golden flower heads; needs bright light. Very old clone which has yet to be bested.
LIMITED AVAILABILITY. A very compact nearly prostratein habit, small-leaved shrublet freely producing cute heads of rich white minute blossoms closely packed in heavy clusters--thus, the "Silver Mound" Lantana which is noted for lateral growth habit.
It is quite aromatic beautiful. "Sweet Bay" or "Greek Laurel" Stiff decorative fragrant leaves on erect woody maroon stems make this the ideal "Formally Shaped" shrub candidate. Aromatic leaves are used to flavor food & to yield an essential oil of perfumery and medicine. The plant police will get you if you even attem...
"Piecrust Bay Tree" Curious selection with each aromatic deep green slim leathery leaf crimped along the margin. This rare cultivar becomes an absolutely stunning topiary, whether clipped into a wide based cone, a pyramid, or cube; or, limbed up as a sturdy trunk topped with a spherical pompon.
A "Hardy Lavender" selected for its Z5 hardiness (if given perfect winter drainage & full sun in summer) and for its large dramatic fragrant violet blue flower spikes reaching a foot in height (usually highlighted with butterflies), fantastic arrayed over the wide spreading bright silver gray fragrant foliage; self-hea...
The imposing "Golden Tree Mallow" with downy chartreuse to gold (in winter) foliage on the eventually 3' plus trunks with lovely pink blossoms. A tree in its native Western Med. areas; the striking foliage of this sport makes it a candidate for many horticultural niches. An easy container subject--but site this careful...
Very wide pale green jade-toned fleshy leaves fan out into an open circle over the fat, swollen surface bulb; winter dormant (leafless) if kept quite cool during winter; very slow to offset. Of more botanic than horticultural interest.
Wonderful miniature with delicately mottled fleshy leaves on clustering glossy surface bulbs. Lovely undemanding houseplant; always a favorite carefree windowsill citizen; excellent addition to any dish garden and a great visual companion to the more commonly available L. socialis.
Formerly Scilla violacea. "Silver Squill" Rich purple swollen bulblets in thick clusters support small violet- backed leaves whose surfaces are dotted silver. Easy houseplant with small wands of tiny white flowers produced seasonally. If allowed to become a many-headed specimen, the winter blooms can be quite impressiv...
A lovely olive ovals scattered on ash blue to glaucus green leaves held in bunches over the swollen bulbs which ofset to form a perfect hemisphere. Originally shared with us by Ruth Crane, this beauty is probably a separate species not accurately identified.
A cultivar selected by the late Juda Livesay sporting fantastic white variegation as stripes throughout which become pink-tinted in strong light. Much valued by collectors of unusual variegates. Not as vigorous as the species forms. Usually shipped as divisions in dry perlite to prevent any rotting.
This is an old plant, but a new intro for Glasshouse Works. This is shorter and higher color than Ledebouria socialis. The spots are darker and the plants are more compact. We have seen this listed as Scilla violacea also.
Wide compound layers of glossy purple leaflets on maroon stems top woody erect trunks; Striking specimen plant. Sometimes given own family, Leeaceae (Vitaceae). Excellent houseplant. More correct as perhaps as Leea guineensis 'Burgundy'
Resembles a sophisticated Pyrrosia with very slim surface rhizomes; strap fronds with indented polka-dot spore patches distinguish this "Sechuan Ribbon Fern" which Eco-Gardens has determined to be Zone 8 hardy. Quite beautiful and distinct in pot or basket--even though its initial slow deliberate growth rate may test y...
"Leopard Plant" Gorgeous glossy rounded leaves with big yellow spots, brightest lemon gold spots produced when grown in cool conditions; pale yellow daisy fls. Often listed as Farfugium japonicum from the Victorain era when the colder (no central heating) houses allowed this evergreen giant daisy to easily grow as a fa...

Fabulous "Crested Leopard Plant" with wildly ruffled leather leaves richly strewn with big gold dapplings--more dramatic dappling than the traditional "Leopard"; tall stems hold sprays of floppy yellow dasies late fall. Cold hardiness depends on location, frost line, & mulching technique. We keep ours in a cool winter ...
Lovely shrublet of uncertain origin quickly self branching to form a wide (yet petite in appearance) outline of tiny glossy leaves with crimped wavy edges nicely variegated. Should be a valuable new candidate for bonsai. Keeps color well and trims well.
Small shrubby tree with dark minutely hairy leaves which, when bruised, give off a stong licorice/anise fragrance. Good container plant for sunny location, easily shaped and sheared to compact shapes and even tolerating temps in the upper 40s mid winter when it produces many tiny Lantana-like heads of blossoms. This im...

Forms a laterally arching mound studded with many tiny "Lantana" heads with fringes of white Lantana blossoms. We are told...
Low spreading dark velvety foliage beautifully foils the clear bright yellow blossoms which appear in tight bouquets; thus "Nosegay Flower" recently renamed " Persian Chocolate"; hanging basket, aquatic, moss standards, and so on.
An excellent subtropical "Golden Nosegay" selection with the clusters of bright yellow flowers highlighting the muted golden foliage of this procumbent half hardy perennial; NOT the patented yellow margined form.
