 Welwitschia mirabilis
Family: Welwitschiaceae
Welwitschia, Tumboa
Origin: Namib Desert
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsOrnamental foliage

This is a strange, bizarre desert plant which grows from a short, thick trunk, with only two leaves that continuously grow from their base, and a long, thick taproot. After germination, the cotyledons grow to 25-35 mm in length, and are followed shortly afterwards by the appearance of the two permanent leaves. These leaves are produced opposite that of the cotyledons, and continue to grow throughout the life of the plant, eventually growing to 2-4 m long and usually becoming split into several strap-shaped sections.

Click to see full-size image Wercklea ferox
Family: Malvaceae
Prickly Umbrella
Origin: Costa Rica
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Wercklea ferox is a rare shrub in the Hibiscus family originally from Costa Rica. A gem for tropical plant collector! This plant gets large green round leaves with gorgeous red veins. Red color seems more visible on the underside of the leaves. This plant starts by forming red buds, only to pop out a yellow delicate Hibiscus-like flower. They are quite pretty as well, but often hidden from the beautiful large leaves. You can see them during the warmer months. This plant can be grown in full sun to bright filtered light. It needs average water and fertilizer. Avoid freezing temperatures.
