SUCCULENTS


We can't promote bromeliads enough. Even when used in modest quantities, they present an ultra tropical feel any landscape and garden. Moreover, their cold hardiness and abilty to yawn at drought, negligence and abuse is astounding.


VARIEGATED BRAZILIAN ALOE Furcraea foetida 'Mediopicta'
One of first bromeliads to be introduced to horticulture and its popularity has skyrocketed ever since. A perfect plant: beautiful foilage and glorious flowers. We've witnessed these plants thrive in dark moist corners and in dry full sun locations. As a boon to you and us, this is one of the few Bromeliads that is readily available in quantites. With luck, your Landscaper can procure newer varieties. Red leafed, pure white, variegated, spinelss, each more beautiful than the next. Amazing.


KALANCHOE Kalanchoe blossfeldiana hybrids
Myths about this plant are more prolific the the plant itself. No, it is not a parasite. No, you do not 'get bugs from it'. No, it won't cause the end of the world. Quite the opposite, this is the most beautiful air quality monitor in the world, it will not grow where there is the slightest pollution.

Spanish moss is mostly appreciated far away from its native range. Upon seeing the wispy drapes, Northeners will exclaim "Beautiful", Europeans say "How Romantic" with a sigh, and in Ausralia and Asia hard cash is paid for just a few strands. The floral industry has relied on this gem for years. Think of that next time you rake or drive over fallen clumps. By the way, in the Nursery and Landscaping industry, this is a plant that money just can't buy.


VRIESEA Vriesea sp. and hybrids
Vrieseas range from petite to monstrous, some are grown for their flowers, others for foilage. The flowering Vrieseas sport a very exotic bloom structure, availble in every fruit juice color, which visually comparable to Heliconias, but with a tiny fraction of the plant size and without the ungainly leaves. The massive foilage Vrieseas are pure impact.


NEOREGELIA Neoregelia hybrids
There are so many Neo hybrids, we will never be able to keep track of them, nor begin to list the many colors and patterns they parade. All we can say is: Exotic. Color Party. Pow. Wow.

Beside some great species, some of the our favorite hybrids which are landscape proven and more apt to be found in quantities sport names such as 'Picasso', 'Angel Face', 'Cotton Candy', 'Voodoo Doll', 'Moonshine' and yes, 'Hannibal Lector'.


GUZMANIA Guzmania hybrids
Popcicle color. Evenly moist and a shady shelterd spot. Dislikes cold.


Tillandsia Tillandsia sp.
Tillandsias species number in the hundreds, ranging from petit to large. O f all the plants we've abused and tested for our client, these have to be the most kill-proof. Most Tillandsias haven't been introdued commercially yet, but we predict a soar in marketing. Who knows? Someday our grandchildren may be wearing these as clothes.
