 Vachellia sphaerocephala, Acacia sphaerocephala
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Bulls-Horn Acacia, Bee Wattle
Origin: Mexico
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersThorny or spiny

The name comes from the shape of the thorns which do indeed resemble the horns of a bull. The tree has a strong, symbiotic relationship with a species of ant, Pseudomyrmex sphaerocephala for which it is the obligate habitat. The ants act as caretakers for the tree, and clear the ground and keep it free of any other plants and even prune surrounding branches of other trees that threaten to outshade the acacia. Without the protection of the ant colony, the acacia tree would fall vulnerable to chewing insects such as beetles or caterpillars, and surrounding trees and shrubs would quickly outcompete the acacia without the maintnance work of the ants to keep the tree safe.

Close related species - Acacia collinsii.

Vachellia xanthophloea, Acacia xanthophloea, Fever tree 

Click to see full-size image Vachellia xanthophloea, Acacia xanthophloea
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Fever tree
Origin: South Africa
Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

The fever tree is an attractive, semi-deciduous to deciduous tree approximately 15 to 25 meters tall and has an open, rounded to spreading or flattish crown which is sparsely foliated. The characteristic, almost luminous, lime green to greenish-yellow bark is smooth, slightly flaking, and coated in a yellow powdery substance. If the powdery surface is rubbed away with the finger it will reveal a green bark beneath. It has a slender to spreading, sparse, roundish crown of feathery foliage. The thorns are long, straight and paired.

This species occurs in groups in low-lying swampy areas. Because its range coincides with regions where malaria is prevalent, it is called "Fever Tree."

Washingtonia filifera, California Fan Palm, Desert Fan Palm, American Cotton Palm, Cotton Palm

Click to see full-size image Washingtonia filifera
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
California Fan Palm, Desert Fan Palm, American Cotton Palm, Cotton Palm
Origin: California
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeThorny or spinySeaside, salt tolerant plant

California Fan Palm can grow 60 ft tall with a crown spread of 15 ft. The massive gray trunk is barrel shaped and ringed with old leaf scars, and may reach over 3 ft in diameter at its widest point. California Fan Palm can have up to thirty gray-green palmate (fan-shaped) leaves, each 3-6 ft across. They spread out to form a loose and open crown. The petioles (leaf stems) of mature palms are armed along the margins with curved thorns; those of young palms are largely unarmed. The individual leaflets are pendulous and swing freely in the wind. Abundant cotton-like threads on and between the leaflets persist even when the palm is mature. People often confuse W.Filifera and W.Robusta .as they are quite similar, particularly when small. The main distinguishing features are that Filifera is shorter and fatter, more big thorns and has cotton threads even when old. Robusta is much more slender, almost no thorns and only has cotton threads when young. W.Filifera is surprisingly cold hardy and will survive a Southern UK winter with slight protection when the plant is about 3 feet tall. A fantastic palm for the beginner, quick and easy to grow from seed (germinate in about 2 weeks) and a must have for the tropical garden. The seeds of California Fan Palm are small cm in diameter, they germinate very easily in a warm place compared to other palms. Washingtonia seeds will typically take about 10 to 21 days to germinate and sprout above the ground, if planted about 1" below the surface. For best results place some soil in a small plastic bag and hang in a warm place in your house. Prefers full sun when large, well drained situation with regular watering.
