Adonidia merrilli variegata - var Philippine Gold

Click to see full-size image

Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterPalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Variegated Christmas Palm. This is the extremely rare variegated version of the Christmas palm native to the Philippines. Incredibly easy to maintain this palm needs only a tropical environment and soil that isn't soggy to thrive. It is able to adapt to a wide variety of growing conditions including being moderately salt tolerant. It prefers a sunny spot but will handle some shade. Self cleaning, this neat and tidy pinnate palm has a short green crownshaft under a dozen or so recurved leaves atop a grey leaf scarred trunk that's slightly swollen at the base. Its red seeds mature in December around Christmas - hence the nickname. Unlike most variegated plants, this form comes 90% true to seed. Needs a good mixture of sun and shade to look its best.
Adonidia is a neat looking, compact palm that resembles a dwarf version of the Royal palm (Roystonea regia) which it matches in beauty. It grows to an overall height of only about 16 ft. By late fall fruit are beginning to ripen and by late December are bright and brilliant red - like ornaments on a Christmas palm! Small stature makes it perfect for use in small scale plantings. Good specimen container plant. The formal symmetry of Christmas palm is nicely showcased when it is grown in a container. Indoors or out this is a glamourous container plant that can maintain its looks despite hardship and neglect.

Sapthaparni, Blackboard Tree, Indian Devil Tree.
This fascinating rare plant with white, strongly perfumed flowers is valued as a fast growing, impressive ornamental shade tree.
Popularly known as Devil Tree, as plant is believed to the devil's abode - probably due to the intoxicating fragrance emitted by flowering trees, especially at night.
The tree is of great cultural significance in the intellectual circle, as traditionally its leaves were awarded to scholars and teachers during convocation ceremonies by the Visva Bharati University (can't think of a better name than Alstonia scholaris!). This tradition was started by Rabindranath Tagore.

Annona sp. - Golden Sugar Apple, Pineapple Annona

Click to see full-size image

Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

This rare Annona is a species originally brought to us from Costa Rica. We believe it to be a natural hybrid between A. muricata and A. glabra.
It is a very ornamental, evergreen, small to medium size tree with waxy, large 4-6" leaves, similar in growth habit to A. muricata, A. montana or Rollinia. Fast growing, forms nice bushy specimen. It has a large, up to 1 lb fruit, green when unripe, turning dark yellow to orange on ripening. The pulp is golden to orange when ripe, with strong Pineapple scent, and resembling Jackfruit in texture. Flavor is like the custard apple but with pineapple, papaya, apricot and melon overtones. Note that some people dislike the taste, others find it good.
The treetolerates flooding. It is also cold hardy at least to upper 20's for a few hours. 3 year old trees survived several nights with frost with hardly any leaf damage. The plant would be very interesting for rare fruit collectors as it offers a large, exotic fruit of unusual color and taste, and appears to be much more hardy and water tolerant than similar looking but sensitive A. muricata, A. montana and Rollinia.
Propagation is by seed, which are grayish to light brown. If stored for several months, seeds may take up to six months to sprout. Trees produce after three to four years from seed.
