Pacific Chrysanthemum
Origin: Japan
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Ajania pacifica forms a bushy mound of lobed green leaves, attractively edged with silver, remaining attractive all season long. Some gardeners grow this plant primarily for its foliage. Small yellow button flowers appear very late in the fall, sometimes lasting until Christmas. It is quite hardy in cold climates, going completely dormant in cold-winter regions, but in warmer climes it is more-or-less evergreen (though at its best in spring and summer).

Albuca spiralis , Frizzle Sizzle, Corkscrew Albuca

Click to see full-size image Albuca spiralis
Family: Asparagaceae   (Formerly:Hyacinthaceae / Liliaceae)
Subfamily: Scilloideae
Frizzle Sizzle, Corkscrew Albuca
Origin: South Africa
CaudexCan be used for bonsaiGroundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterFragrant

This is one of the coolest plant you've ever grown! Albuca spiralis Frizzle Sizzle (the Corkscrew Albuca) is a South African bulb selection with green onion-like leaves that look like they were curled with a curling iron. Each plant has its own personality...some have short, tightly curled leaves, others have taller, looser curled leaves. Over time, the bulb will multiply, resulting in a full, very wild and wacky clump. Albuca spiralis blooms in the spring with spikes of orchid-like chartreuse-yellow flowers. On occasion, Albuca Frizzle Sizzle will rebloom later in the season. Not only is this a fun plant that will capture the attention of everyone who sees it, but it is super easy to grow, too. Treat it like a succulent. Lots of sun, well draining soil, and let the soil dry between waterings. Hot and dry conditions seem to encourage the most extreme leaf coils. In norther climates, Albuca spiralis Frizzle Sizzle is easily over wintered indoors on a sunny window sill. Or stop watering, let the bulb go dormant, and store in a cool, dry location. Fragrant yellow flowers appear in spring on flower spikes that are adorned with 10-20 blooms per spike. The blossoms have a light vanilla fragrance. Grow in full sun and allow the soil to dry out between waterings. There are no pest or disease problems with Frizzle Sizzle so it makes an ideal home garden plant thatís distinctive and eye-catching.
