Featured plants for October 2020:
The lovely and well-loved evergreen plumeria known as Plumeria obtusa, or simply as Singapore, produces 3.5″ snow white flowers with a scent that has an almost jasmine-citrus quality. The flowers are complimented by very dark green and shiny ovate/obtuse leaves. It can grow up to 15 feet tall and is best suited to a tropical climate where, unlike most frangipanis, it is reliably evergreen.
This is a tropical tree small to medium size that it’s native to Philippines. The tree does not have insect or disease problems, keeps its foliage all year and blooms throughout the year. The tree is open-branched with a height and spread of about 20 to 25 feet. It is very neat except for flower drop. The tubular blooms average 2 inches long and 2 inches across. The light mauve flowers with yellow throats are nicely fragrant and are carried in big clusters. It adapts well to alkaline soils, it has a moderate salt tolerance and a good drought tolerance.
Capparis cynophallophora, Jamaica Caper
The evergreen leaves of the Jamaica Caper are light-green above, with fine brown scales below. Jamaican caper is only found in Florida or other tropical areas outside the US where it can grow up to 18 foot tall. The thick pyramidal shape of this salt- and drought-tolerant plant makes it a perfect hedge choice. It performs best in soils with good drainage. Expect your Jamaican caper to be visited frequently by honey bees, cardinals, blue jays and mockingbirds, it also serve as larvae hosts for the Florida white (Appias drusilla) butterfly. Don’t fret about typical Florida pests; they don’t seem to bother with it too much.
