 Beaucarnea recurvata, Nolina recurvata
Family: Asparagaceae   (Formerly:Dracaenaceae / Liliaceae / Agavaceae)
Subfamily: Nolinoideae
Ponytail Palm, Pony Tail, Bottle Palm, Nolina, Elephant-foot Tree
Origin: Mexican highlands, Florida
CaudexCan be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunDry conditionsPalm or palm-like

Palm-like plant. Succulent. The greatly swollen trunk base and the recurving, narrow leaves are certain identification. With age, the trunk eventually develops a few branches. Ponytail can get up to 30' tall, and the base up to 12' across, but houseplants generally remain less than 6 or 8' tall. The plant looks a little like a palm, and a little like a big onion sitting on the ground with a single stalk growing up and sporting a parasol of drooping, strap-like leaves.Plants are dioecious, meaning only female plants will produce seed.

Ponytail makes a large and handsome houseplant, doing well even in rooms with air conditioning as long as it has bright light. It's a good specimen plant for a rock garden in a dry, warm climate.

Boswellia sacra is the primary tree in the genus Boswellia from which frankincense, a resinous dried sap, is harvested.

Boswellia sacra is a tree with papery, peeling bark and leaves clustered at the ends of tangled branches. It has compound leaves and an odd number of leaflets, which grow opposite to one another along its branches. Its tiny flowers, a yellowish white, are gathered in axillary clusters composed of five petals, ten stamens and a cup with five teeth. Boswellia Sacra trees are considered unusual for their ability to grow in environments so unforgiving that they sometimes grow out of solid rock. The initial means of attachment to the rock is unknown but is accomplished by a bulbous disk-like swelling of the trunk.

Bowiea volubilis, Schizobasopsis volubilis, Climbing Onion, Sea Onion

Click to see full-size image Bowiea volubilis, Schizobasopsis volubilis
Family: Asparagaceae   (Formerly:Hyacinthaceae / Liliaceae)
Subfamily: Scilloideae
Climbing Onion, Sea Onion
Origin: South Africa
CaudexVine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterDeciduous

The Bowiea volubilis is an interesting plant. The bulb is pale green and grows half buried in the soil. Each year it develops new branched stems that somewhat make it look like an elongated asparagus. After a couple of months the stem dries and fades, but the bulb produces another one right next.

Cultivation is not too difficult in a container such as a large pot or a hanging basket, provided that the soil is gritty and perfectly drained and the plant is placed in strong light. Stakes or wires can be provided for the climbing branches, or they can be allowed to hang down. The plant should be watered very sparingly except during the growing season, when new stems emerge from the bulb.

Brachychiton bidwillii, Brachychiton paradoxus var. bidwillii, Little Kurrajong

Click to see full-size image Brachychiton bidwillii, Brachychiton paradoxus var. bidwillii
Family: Malvaceae
Subfamily: Sterculioideae
Little Kurrajong
Origin: Australia
CaudexCan be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Brachychiton - from Greek, brachys, short and chiton, a tunic, a reference to the coating on the seed. bidwillii - After John Carne Bidwill (1815-1853), a botanical collector of the 1840 - 1850 period. Brachychiton bidwillii is a highly variable species which may sometimes develop as a small tree on a single stem reaching 13-14 ft. with a spread of 13 ft. However, other forms may be little over two metres tall. The Southern Queensland forms usually have deeply-lobed leaves, while the 'Maroochydore' form has very hairy, 5-lobed leaves which are purple-brown when young. This form has pink flowers of a different shape from all others, with a long tube. The largest flowers in the species are found in some plants from the northern inland (Leichhardt form).Most forms of B.bidwillii drop their leaves before flowering. As the plants age, flower production increases, and after 8 years or so they may produce bunches of up to 50 flowers coming directly from the trunk, as well as the usual flowers on twigs and branches. Like other brachychitons, B.bidwillii tolerates a wide range of soil types provided they are well drained. All flower best in full sun, despite being 'dry rainforest' plants.All forms are frost-resistant to at least -6 degrees C and are drought-tolerant from a very early age (little over a month), as they form tuberous roots at the same time as their first true leaves. All forms respond well to pruning. Propagation from seed is relatively easy without any pretreatment. The seeds are surrounded in the capsule by irritant hairs and are best collected using gloves. The species usually takes about 3 years to flower from seed. Grafting is also relatively easy, and by using scions of mature material from good flowering forms, plants will flower much earlier than those grown from seed. Seedlings of B.acerifolius, B.populneus and B.discolor have been successfull used as grafting stocks. May be used as Bonsai.
