Here you will find some exotic flower and foliage species that have not been yet placed in their own category. Some are small herbaceous plants, while some are large trees. You will find acalyphas, cordylines, hoyas, pandanus, plumerias and others, including uncommon plants. Day by day we will add more and more interesting items.
Cordyline Can Can is a spectacular new variety with striking, multi-hued foliage, producing leaves that change from bright pink over red to a complementary mix of cream over green. The ever-changing foliage colour provides year-round interest and is unique to this plant.We offer a 60/70 cm tall plant.
Pink Passion (‘Seipin') was found by Paul Hummel of wholesale growers Seiont Nurseries as a sport on a batch of the old favourite Cordyline australis ‘Red Star' at a tissue culture laboratory at Myerscough College in Lancashire in 2002.
Frost hardy selection of Cordyline australis, with spectacular burgundy red leaves. It eventually becomes a tall branched palm-like tree, hardy to frost! It grows outdoors in Temperate to Subtropical conditions and does equally well in London or in the Canary Islands.
The plain green form is the ancestor of all ornamental forms of Cordyline fruticosa. It is more robust and hardy than most. It is widespread in the Pacific Islands where it is ubiquitously planted. This plant is very useful for cooking and for medicinal purposes. Leaves are used to wrap and cook all types of food, roots are edible too.
Small sized leaves, mostly green but they develop creamy-white margins and tips at the peak of the growing season. It is an unusual "variegation" reminiscent of the famous Japanese Aspidistra cv. Asa Ahi. Our current picture does not do any justice because we took it at the start of new growth.
Large sized, almost black leaves, with blueish wax. The whole plant is very erect and robust, up to 4,5 m tall. "Lyon' s Black" is one of the boldest cultivars. It was selected at Lyon Arboretum, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
One of the best-looking modern cordylines! There are just too many colours in its leaves. Cream and chocolate stripes are intermingled with about anything between pink green and blue. 'Miss Andrea' also has a compact growth habit and it rarely exceeds 1 m in height as it branches from below, forming a round mass of tidy rosettes.
Cordyline stricta can grow indoors as a house plant, but it will also be perfect in the tropical-looking mediterranean garden. It looks like a miniature Cordyline fruticosa but they can take cooler temperatures and short frosts to -2 C with little or no damage.
