'Snow White'
 Aphelandra squarrosa
Family: Acanthaceae
Zebra Plant
Origin: Mountains of Mexico to Brazil
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowers

Zebra Plant gets its name from white stripes on the leaves. It is one of the best house plants. This plant is not only pretty because of its white-veined, green folliage, but also for the apical inflorescence with its beautiful yellow bracts. Bright light but no direct sunlight is preferred. Water when the soil surface has just begun to dry, however less water is needed after flowering and in winter. Aphelandra drops leaves if over- or under-watered. Ideal growing temperatures are between 65 and 70 degrees. The plant tolerates average home humidity but prefers high humidity. Forcing Zebra Plant into bloom requires a well lit area. Zebra Plant has a winter rest period. Propagation: Propagation is by stem tip cuttings taken in spring and kept at temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. Keep the cuttings continually moist. Leaf bud cuttings may be used but they take longer.

Aphelandra tetragona, Aphelandra cristata, Red Aphelandra

Click to see full-size image Aphelandra tetragona, Aphelandra cristata
Family: Acanthaceae
Red Aphelandra
Origin: South America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowers

These attractive tender perennials and shrubs are grown for their ornamental foliage and interesting flower spikes and require high humidity and warm temperatures to flower. The color of the flowers is orange-scarlet to scarlet. These plants may be grown outdoors in mild climates, in humus-rich soil; otherwise, they need to be grown in homes or greenhouses. When grown indoors, well-drained pots that are filled with equal parts of loam and peat and a generous amount of sand should be used. They should be placed in bright, indirect light out of drafts. Water must be applied with care. Waterlogged, or very dry soil will make the leaves fall. They should be fed with liquid fertilizer as the flowers form. When they've finished blooming, less water is needed. Do not pinch off the tips of the shoots, the idea is to produce one stem with one large spike of flowers. Propagation by cuttings. In the spring, side shoots can be removed, or a piece of the old branch can be inserted in sand in a propagating case in the greenhouse. When they have grown roots, they are placed on the open benches for a few days and then potted. Seeds may also be sown in pots of sandy peat and loam in the spring.

Aptenia cordifolia, Baby Sun Rose

Click to see full-size image Aptenia cordifolia
Family: Aizoaceae
Baby Sun Rose
Origin: South Africa
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

This plant grows best in full sun and tolerates poor soils, heavy or well-drained. Flowering is in summer and autumn. Easily propagated by cuttings or seed. The very similar A. lancifolia, sometimes refered to in the trade as A. cordifolia 'Fuchsia', is almost identical (the leaves are less cordate) except in being less vigorous, and with distinct magenta or fuchsia colored flowers.

They grow well on retaining walls and hanging baskets.

Arachis hypogaea, Arachis glabrata, Peanut

Click to see full-size image
Arachis glabrata
 Arachis hypogaea, Arachis glabrata
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Peanut
Origin: South America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterYellow/orange flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.Edible

Species in the genus Arachis have an interesting reproductive biology because the seed-containing pods mature underground instead of aerially as in most legumes. The flowers don't usually open, and are self-pollinated. After pollination, there is cell division below the young pod sending it down on a stalk and pushing it into the ground where it matures. Seeds yield a non-drying, edible oil, used in cooking, margarines, salads, canning, for deep-frying, for shortening in pastry and bread, and for pharmaceuticals, soaps, cold creams, pomades and lubricants, emulsions for insect control, and fuel for diesel engines. The oil cake, a high-protein livestock feed, may be used for human consumption. Other products include dyes, ice cream, massage oil, paints, and peanut milk. Seeds are eaten raw, whole roasted and salted, or chopped in confectioneries, or ground into peanut butter. Young pods may be consumed as a vegetable. Young leaves and tips are suitable as a cooked green vegetable.

Edible peanut is Arachis hypogaea, and the ornamental peanut is very similar species, Arachis glabrata.

Arisarum vulgare, Friar's Cowl

Click to see full-size image Arisarum vulgare
Family: Araceae
Friar's Cowl
Origin: the Mediterranean
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSemi-shadeRegular waterUnusual colorIrritatingPoisonous or toxic

This rather bizarre, perennial plant, which grows to a height of approximately 30 cm (11.8 in), propagates vegetatively by tubers. Its stem, underground, is broad and glabrous. Bloom color: Green, Purple, Brown/Bronze. It is considered toxic, in as much as the leaves and tuber are emetic, if swallowed. The plant contains calcium oxylate crystals. These cause an extremely unpleasant sensation similar to needles being stuck into the mouth and tongue if they are eaten.
