Oh-oh! This is a truly well-done cross of two elegant and evergreeen wild South African species: One is the coral-red, freely blooming C.elatus, and the other is the more elusive C.obliquus with hanging blooms and a bold habit. All the best was inherited and now we have this good garden or pot subject.
Pale green leaves open up in tufts of fluffy fibres. A robust Dasylirion from high altitude desert regions in central Mexico that develops a short trunk, often holding multiple crowns of pale green leaves with frayed leaf tips. Native to dry areas of Oaxaca and Puebla, in Mexico.
Another interesting Delonix from Madagascar. It is very adaptable and can attain anything from 3 to 12 m in height. Flowers lack petals but they are very beautiful, with lots of golden stamens shown when the tree is still leafless. We grew some plants in 35 cm pots and they started blooming beautifully after about 5 years, when they were just 1.5 m tall.
Large stapeliad from Central Africa, with grey angular stems. Large dark flowers, un to 5 cm wide, are held in clusters. They are yellow orange inside and then brown-black, with ciliate margins. It can be kept for years as a small collection stapeliad, but the largest specimens in habitat are more than one meter tall!

This dracaena looks different from most others. It has showy mottled foliage held on thin bamboo-like stems.
