This is an old fashioned, but very rewarding garden plant. Zantedeschia is named after Professor Zantedeschi, probably Giovanni Zantedeschi, 1773-1846, an Italian physician and botanist. The flowers are faintly scented and this attracts various crawling insects and bees which are responsible for pollinating the flowers. The spathe turns green after flowering and covers the ripening berries. It rots away when these are ripe and the succulent yellow berries attract birds, which are responsible for seed dispersal. The rhizome is large and eaten by wild pigs and porcupines and the ripe fruit enjoyed by birds. Raw plant material causes swelling of the throat because of microscopic, sharp calcium oxalate crystals. The leaves are used as a poultice and a treatment for headaches. May be used as a marginal plant along streams, or on the edge of a pond. Plant in partial shade if there is no permanent water. It can be planted as a foliage plant in deep shade under trees but will not flower well in this position. It is fast growing and likes very rich, well-drained conditions. It is an excellent cutflower and lasts a long time in water. Nowadays there are other forms of this species which will enliven an old theme. There is also an attractive form with leaves spotted white. Requires consistently moist soil.

See Zantedeschia aethiopica.

Zebrina pendula, Tradescantia zebrina, Wandering Jew

Click to see full-size image Zebrina pendula, Tradescantia zebrina
Family: Commelinaceae
Wandering Jew
Origin: Tropical America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersSeaside, salt tolerant plant

The Zebrina is a relatively common house plant from Tropical Americas. It is not as robust as the similar looking Tradescantia fluminensis. The species name "pendula" means "hanging".It grows outside in summer if you have a shaded, humid location in the garden. Avoid touching the watery sap of the Zebrina, since it can be a cause of skin inflammation. The flowers are inconspicuous white to pink.

The Zebrina grows rapidly if given enough water and fertilizer. The variety 'Quadricolor' has a lot of purple, but needs more sun to keep its color intensity. Frost Tolerance: Hardy to 32F. No direct sun, keep in a humid area, light shade, needs a lot of light indoor. Needs regular watering. Growth Habits: Groundcover, 6-12in tall.

Propagation: Cuttings that root easily in water.

Zeuxine strateumatica, Schlechter soldier's orchid, Centipede Grass Orchid

Click to see full-size image Zeuxine strateumatica
Family: Orchidaceae
Schlechter soldier's orchid, Centipede Grass Orchid
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Z. strateumatica, has become naturalized in southern Florida after being introduced into the area as an adventive with Centipede Grass from China (this is where the Florida nickname "Centipede Grass Orchid" came from for this species.) Looks too nice to be just a weed! It emerges in winter, blooming in late December and January; within a few weeks, the plants vanish. The following year, they may return, and from the same root a new plant will grow next to the previous one.

Zingiber collinsii, Ginger Silver Streaks

Click to see full-size image Zingiber collinsii
Family: Zingiberaceae
Ginger Silver Streaks
Origin: Vietnam, Cambodia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeKeep soil moistRegular waterOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This species is distributed from southeastern Viet Nam to the south of high central Viet Nam and extends to the eastern parts of Cambodia. Though rather common in southeastern Viet Nam, this species has only recently been described. The species is listed as Vulnerable. Species Authority: Mood and Theilade. In Pham (2003) this species is misidentified as Zingiber acuminatum.

The foliage is stunning. Its really a show stopper in the yard. Grows in shady places in evergreen to semi-evergreen forest undergrowth. Usually found as single plants, but rarely forming large clumps.
