x Fatshedera lizei, Fatshedera, Ivy Tree

Click to see full-size image x Fatshedera lizei
Family: Araliaceae
Fatshedera, Ivy Tree
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The Ivy Tree is an usual plant in that it's the result of a cross between two genera, the Hedera (English ivy) and Fatsia japonica. The resulting hybrid has the interesting and lovely leaf shape of the Fatsia, which can be seen growing along the roadsides throughout the tropical world, and the cultural requirements and basic climbing habit of its ivy parent. As a shrub, Fatshedera can grow up to 1.2 m tall, above which the weight of the fairly weak branches makes them tend to bend over. It can however also be tied to a support and grow into a vine up to 34 m tall; unlike Hedera, it does not readily climb without assistance.

It is grown both as a garden plant outdoors, and as a houseplant indoors, where its tolerance of shady conditions is valued.

Xanthorrhoea sp., Grass Tree

Click to see full-size image
Xanthorrhoea australis
 Xanthorrhoea sp.
Family: Xanthorrhoeaceae
Grass Tree
Origin: Australia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The name of genus Xanthorrhoea comes from the Greek Xanthos for yellow and rheo meaning flow, referring to a yellow resin exuded from the trunk of some species of Xanthorrhoea.

The Xanthorrhoea genus is part of the Xanthorrhoeaceae family, which is made up of small trees or perennials with woody stems. The leaves are tough and linear, and the flowers are radially symmetrical, bisexual, and spike-like.

Commonly called Grass Trees, Xanthorrhoea plants are also known as Balga Grass to the Australian aborigines, which is their word for black boy. The Aborigines probably called these plants balga because after a wild fire, the bottom leaves burn away revealing a singed black trunk with long green reed-like leaves extending from the top of the trunk giving the appearance of black figures. All species of Xanthorrhoea are very slow growing, but they are also very long lived - up to 600 years! Long straight spears of white blossoms extend from the top of the tree especially in the year following wild fires.

The glassy resin which exudes from the trunks was previously used in varnish and other products. The flakes of resin were collected from around the base of the stem, heated and rolled into balls.The flowering spikes of the grass tree were soaked in water to make a sweet drink, fresh or slightly fermented. The soft bases of the young leaves were eaten. Tough leaves were used as knives. Europeans harvested the gum to make varnishes and lacquers.

Generally frost tolerant, all Xanthorrhoea require well-drained soil and a sunny location because they are prone to root rot. They can be grown very successfully in pots.

Family: Araceae

Origin: South America
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliageEthnomedical plant.

The Xanthosoma species are plants of the tropical rain forest and, although in their natural habitat they grow under the forest canopy, under cultivation they are usually sown with full exposure to sunlight. They require well-drained soils and do not tolerate the permanent presence of water. The usable parts are the subterranean tuberous stems which have a nutritional value comparable to the potato and are probably easier to digest. A secondary use is of consumption of the young leaves, similar to spinach. Leafy species of Xanthosoma not grown for tubers are called belembe and calalous. There are actually two different malangas: Malanga blanca (Xanthosoma sagittifolium), considered the true malanga, which grows on dry land. The other is malanga amarillo (Colocasia esculenta) which grows in wet bog-like areas. Generally, malanga resembles dasheen (taro) and the elephant-ear plant with large green leaves about 2 feet wide by 2 1/2 feet long. The malanga plant may attain a height of 5 feet or more. Edible tubers (cormels) are formed in the soil at the base of the plant. A central large tuber (corm) is formed, with a cluster of cormels, grayish brown to black lateral tubers, around it. Malanga are about the size and shape of a regular white potato; they look a little like an overgrown gladiola bulb, because the outside skin of the malanga is brown and somewhat hairy. It generally weighs 1/2 to 2 pounds, but can be heavier. The interior has an extremely crisp texture and can vary in color from cream, yellow or pink. Malanga is often milled into flour, since malanga is probably the most hypoallergenic food in the world. Even persons with extensive allergies should do very well with this flour. The starch grains are the smallest and most easily digested of all complex carbohydrates. Malanga flour is used as a substitute for wheat flour to make cookies, quick breads, and similar items.

Rare and hard-to-find, Xanthosoma albo marginata has beautiful variegated foliage that is mottled in white and hues of green. The tips of the leaves have a curious cupped formation. Plants reach 3-5' tall.
