What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Alocasia Tiny Dancers is an unusual aroid that only grows about 14" tall with bright green stems and leaves that have a slightly cupped form. Its growth habit, however, gives the appearance of a full bushy plant as the stems emerge at different times, giving it a tiered effect. One of the best houseplants for its ease of care. Keep it moist, go light on the fertilizer and grow in a partially sunlit window if it is an indoor houseplant. It also makes an ideal plant for an outdoor patio due to its unique form.

Alocasia x zebrina - Tiger Elephant Ear

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageDeciduousSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This Elephant Ear is a very rare plant seldom seen in the wild. Very narrow foliage with a blue to green coloration in an odd pattern. It has elongated leaves with a patterned coloration and tiger-colored stems that you won't find in other Alocasias. This variety makes a great houseplant thanks to its manageable size. For coloration development, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant ears' attributes become even more defined when they mature.
A few years ago plants were selling as high as 150.00 for small starts. That was if you could find a grower and get on the waiting list for a start of this rare and unusual plant. The foliage is very narrow and sharply arrowhead or hastate shaped. Each leaf is a dark blue-green with an odd coloration effect commonly called reticulated. The foliage looks like the reflection of light off of water. This is an extremely unusual feature for any plant. With green and brown striped petioles. The plant can grow 3 to 5 feet tall in ideal conditions.

Arundina graminifolia - Bamboo Orchid, Bird Ground Orchid

Click to see full-size image

Full sunShadeSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowers

Bamboo ground orchid produces pinkish flowers at the top of tall cane-like pseudobulbs. It's the only species in the genus. The plants are quite tall; they'll reach at least hip level, possibly over your head, and their vegetative resemblance to bamboo can be uncanny. The long pseudobulbs have leaves alternating along their length, similar to Epidendrum orchids. The flower stems, which emerge from the top of the canes, produce several flowers sequentially, so that there will be one at a time over an extended period. The flowers are white with a purple-to-pink lip, and shaped similarly to a Cattleya orchid flower. They are 2-3 inches across, and can appear for much of the year, especially in summer.

Billbergia windii (nutans) - Bromeliad Queen of Tears, Friendship Plant

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphytePink flowersUnusual colorOrnamental foliageAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Friendship Plant. This Bromeliad is one of the easiest to grow indoors, and one of the most striking. Its thick, strap-like leaves grow into an upright rosette, creating an urn that must be filled with water at all times. As the plant matures, the leaves arch outward, lending a graceful appearance. The foliage can reach up to 15 inches tall and about twice as wide, so give this plant some room to spread out. The flowers are pink, purple, yellow or green and are surrounded by red or pink bracts. One of its common names Queen's Tears comes from the drops of nectar that "weep" from the flowers when the plant is moved or touched. Because it readily produces offsets that can be shared with friends, it is also commonly known as Friendship Plant.
