Combretum sp., Flame Creeper, Burning Bush

Click to see full-size image Combretum sp.
Family: Combretaceae
Flame Creeper, Burning Bush
Origin: Tropical Africa
Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeUnknown name

Combretum is a robust, deciduous climber, sometimes a scrambling shrub or small tree. Masses of small flowers with bright red petals and long stamens form massed sprays which festoon the branches for about three weeks in spring. The oval leaves are 13-60mm long and 13-50mm wide. The fruit is 4-winged, green tinged with red or pink when young, drying to pale yellowish brown. Combretums have adapted to wind dispersal by developing a wing-like fruit structure that can carry the seed with the help of air currents or wind.

Allow it to grow up a fence or strong pergola or even to tumble down a north facing bank or grow into a large tree. Without support it will form a large rambling and spreading shrub. Grow in a protected position in a frost-prone area in light, well-drained soil enriched with compost. Water particularly well in Summer, but can withstand drought well. Prune hard if necessary to keep under control. Propagated from seed.

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsUnknown name

Costus are easilly distinguished from other commonly cultivated gingers because the leaves spiral around the main stem like a circular stairway. In fact they are called Spiral Gingers. The Costus species are rich and varied in form, flower and growing conditions. There are short mounding forms, spreading forms and upright forms.

Species and varieties:

Costus afer

Crinum sp., River Lily

Crinum is a fascinating genus of the large and equally captivating Amaryllidaceae family. Larger in stature than most other species of Amaryllidaceae, most crinums are suitable as landscape plants in or near water features while most of the smaller species can be successfully cultivated even in a small garden.

Throughout the world Crinum species have been used traditionally to cure ailments and diseases. Phytochemical analysis yielded more than 150 different isoquinoline or Amaryllidaceae alkaloids and some of the most noted effects are analgesic, anticholinergic, antitumour and antiviral. Recently, galanthamine has been registered as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, which is an important approach in treating Alzheimer's disease (Jäger et al. 2004). Since the alkaloids are highly toxic, use of Crinum species is not recommended for the novice, as a large dose could easily be fatal.

Most species will grow well in any soil to which plenty of compost has been added. Plants grow best in full sun but will tolerate light shade and will thrive in a wet part of the garden.
