 Vigna speciosa
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Snail Vine
Origin: South America
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

An outstanding and exotic looking, fast growing vine that produces masses of fragrant flowers carried in bold clusters around strong 6" - 8" stems. The large, spiraling flowers are extremely attractive and create an on-going display all summer long. The flowers show up especially well set against the handsome mid-green foliage. This rare and unusual vine is ideal grown over a fence, trellis or arbor and can be used over lattice work to create shade for a deck or patio. It can even be grown in containers over a support. The most out-standing and floriferous member of this family. The flowers are quite fragrant and are mostly pollinated by ants - if you have no ants, you'll have no pods and therefore no seeds.

Also called "Phaseolus giganteus" (a horticultural name)

Vitex lucens, Puriri, New Zealand Chaste tree

Click to see full-size image Vitex lucens
Family: Lamiaceae   (Formerly:Verbenaceae)
Puriri, New Zealand Chaste tree
Origin: New Zealand
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadePink flowersOrnamental foliageAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

The name Chaste tree for this species comes from a species of southern Europe,Vitex agnus-castus, where it was treated by ancients as a symbol of chastity and long ago discussed in this regard by Pliny the Elder. Puriri does not mean that the species from New Zealand is pure, but coincidentally a tree along the coast near the Bay of Plenty is treated as sacred by the Maori people; they claim that the remains of important ancestors repose in large cavities within its roots.

Family: Bromeliaceae
Subfamily: Tillandsioideae
Bromeliad
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftShadeSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterPink flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

The Vriesea family is a very popular and easily cultivated bromeliad. The genera can be divided into two groups. One is grown for there impressive foliage and the other for their colorful bracts and flowers.They range in sizes from a very tiny 10 cm to more than 2 metre in diameter and height. The bright flowering group are very colorful and have long lasting flowering displays. The foliage group have striking foliage markings and colors and are symmetrically vase shaped to hold water in their neat rosettes. The long flower spike is camouflaged with the foliage markings and extends dominantly above the foliage. It prefers medium light and "good" water, that is, water without salts. The use of bottled drinking water, rain water, or filtered sink water is best. Be careful not to expose it to temperatures in the 30 F. See Bromeliad page.

Vriesea fosteriana

Vriesea Gemma
