Akebia quinata grows to 10 m (30 ft) or more in height and has compound leaves with five leaflets. The flowers are clustered in racemes and are chocolate-scented, with three or four sepals. The fruits are sausage-shaped pods which contain edible pulp.

Plants are evergreen in mild winters. Since the chocolate vine growth rate is so fast, it makes an excellent cover for arbors, trellises, pergolas or fences.

Alocasia macrorrhiza, Giant Taro, Giant Elephant Ear, Upright Elephant Ear, Pai

Click to see full-size image
Var. lutea - Solid Gold
 Alocasia macrorrhiza
Family: Araceae
Giant Taro, Giant Elephant Ear, Upright Elephant Ear, Pai
Origin: Tropical Asia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageFragrantEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Alocasia macrorrhiza is similar to other large-leafed arums such as the Xanthosoma sagittifolium, Peltrandra spp., and Colocasia esculenta, often called Taro. Alocasia macrorrhiza differs from the others in having an upright stem and holding its leaves upright, and in several technical characteristics that mean a lot to the botanists. Numerous hybrids have been produced from among the various Elephant Ear species, and it's not always possible to identify particular specimens.

It produced insignificant but fragrant white flowers on a sradix enclosed in a leaf-like, yellow-green spathe.

Giant taro is cultivated throughout the tropics for its edible rhizomes and shoots.

Alocasias require continual warmth and humidity. The soil should be rich but well drained, and the plant appreciates frequent watering (daily in hot weather), especially as if grows larger. Note however, that when the plant is young and small, too much water (particularly if the weather is cold) will rot the tuber, so be careful not to overdo it.

Bright light is preferred, but it will do well in anything up to 80 percent shade. Leaves tend to grow larger in shadier positions. Full sun is usually not preferred and may discolour the leaves, although it will usually cope with a bit of full sun provided it can get enough water.

Solid Gold is a giant Alocasia, easily growing to 6 ft high in good tropical conditions. It has glossy emerald green leaves up to 1 metre long held stiffly upwards, with prominent yellow veining on the underside of the leaves.
The striking and spectacular aspect of this plant is, of course, the buttercup yellow stems and veins on the undersides of the leaves. It is a bright and obvious yellow, not just a pale green or lemon color. The more light the plants receive, the brighter the stem and the darker the leaf will be. The stems of young plants are a lighter, greenish color until they get a few leaves; as they get older, the yellow color becomes more prominent.
This is a fast growing Alocasia and in good conditions. It grows larger in the ground than in pots - Alocasias seem to need a lot of room for their roots to get the huge leaves.

Amaranthus sp., Amaranth

Amaranthus cruentus
 Amaranthus sp.
Family: Amaranthaceae
Amaranth
Origin: Tropical America
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRed/crimson/vinous flowersEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Approximately 60 species are recognized, with inflorescences and foliage ranging from purple and red to gold.

The genus also contains several well-known ornamental plants, such as Amaranthus caudatus, a native of India and a vigorous, hardy annual with dark purplish flowers crowded in handsome drooping spikes.

Amaranthus cruentus is a tall annual herb topped with clusters of dark pink flowers. Many parts of the plants, including the leaves and seeds, are edible, and are frequently used as a source of food in India and South America. It is believed to have originated from Amaranthus hybridus, with which it shares many morphological features. Ancient amaranth grains still used to this day include the three species, Amaranthus caudatus, Amaranthus cruentus, and Amaranthus hypochondriacus.

Species and varieties:

Amaranthus caudatus (Pendant Amaranth, Tassel Flower)

Amaranthus cruentus (Red amaranth, Mexican Grain Amaranth)

Amaranthus mangostanus (Amaranth Edible Red)

Amaranthus tricolor
