Colocasia esculenta 'White Lava' PPAF (White Lava Elephant Ear)
Colocasia 'White Lava' is the latest in the elephant ear breeding handiwork of Hawaii's Dr. John Cho. Several years ago, we shared Colocasia 'Nancy's Revenge' with John in the hope he could create a non-running improved version and, in 2013, the resulting Colocasia 'White Lava' was unveiled. Colocasia' White Lava' is a clumping elephant ear with large glossy green leaves which, as the season progresses, are adorned with a wide band of creamy white down the center of each leaf, later radiating out into the side veins. Each amazing leaf is further highlighted by a large purple spot where the leaf attaches to the stalk. I hope you'll agree that Colocasia 'White Lava' is one of the most amazing elephant ears you've ever grown.
Agave isthmensis 'Ohi Raijin Shiro Nakafu' (Ohi Raijin Shiro Nakafu Dwarf Butterfly Century Plant)
Agave isthmensis 'Ohi Raijin Shiro Nakafu' (white centered thunder queen) is a very rare variegated selection of the dwarf butterfly century plant, Agave isthmensis, which hails from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec along the southern coast of Oaxaca, Mexico. Agave 'Ohi Raijin Shiro Nakafu' makes a tight clump to 4" tall x 4" wide that produces pups from the leaf axils instead of via underground runners. Although Agave isthmensis doesn't have much winter hardiness, it makes a superb container specimen since it stays so small. This is typically a century plant that is only available in collector circles for prices well over $100 each.
Hibiscus mutabilis 'Flora Plena' (Confederate Rose Mallow)
From China comes a wonderful hibiscus that's virtually unknown outside of China and the Gulf Coast region of the US. Hibiscus mutabilis emerges from dormancy and shoots 10' into the air. The foliage of confederate rose mallow is quite bold, with soft, fuzzy green leaves up and down the stems...great for structure and texture even without flowers. The flowers emerge in late October and November, resembling giant, double rosy-pink camellias...holy cow!
Lycoris x houdyshelii (Houdyshel's Surprise Lily)
This rare, naturally-occurring hybrid surprise lily (Lycoris straminea x Lycoris radiata var. pumila) is found in the Chinese provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang. It was first imported to the US in 1948 and named in 1957 by Dr. Traub in honor of bulb collector Cecil Houdyshel. The frilly, light-yellow flowers top the 20" tall stalks that seemingly appear from nowhere in mid- to late-August. Emerging from the center of the petals are long stamens, often tinged in light pink, like eyelashes on a lady of the evening. After flowering, the deer-resistant winter rosettes of 15" long basal leaves emerge in late September and persist all winter. This has been a superb and reliable bloomer for us.
Cryptomeria japonica 'Nana Albospica' (White-tip Dwarf Japanese Cedar)
Cryptomeria japonica 'Nana Albospica' is one of the most amazing of the dwarf conifers and one of only a few with nice variegated foliage. Cryptomeria japonica 'Nana Albospica' makes an 8' tall x 5' wide pyramid with new growth that is bright white. For us, the color holds well all season.
