Aristolochia gigantea - Giant Pelican Flower

Click to see full-size image

Vine or creeperFull sunRegular waterModerate waterDry conditionsUnusual colorFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsInvasiveSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Pelican flower - large flower variety. One of the most popular ornamental vines. Brown flower is very unusual-looking. Very fast-growing and vigorous, can cover a fence just in one season.
The Aristolochia gigantea will inspire a sense of marvel to anyone who gazes upon it. This truly spectacular blossom produces a pouch that in some cultivars is almost 2 feet long and more than a foot across. Ivory veins network across a burgundy velvet background as the flower unfurls. Heart-shaped, light green leaves, about 6 inches in length, adorn this easy-to-grow vine. The plant blooms at a young age and grows in full sun or partial shade.
In some sources, Aristolochia gigantea is considered as Aristolochia grandiflora var. Hookeri. The cultivation of Aristolochias is undemanding. Sun lovers that appreciate some shade in hotter inland areas, they adapt to any soil that drains well. Any pruning necessary to contain or shape the plants should be done in late winter or early spring. Cultivation is easy, and growth can be tamed.

Passiflora nitida (Bell Apple) is a tasty, but relatively unknown passion fruit native to the Amazon jungle region. This is a rare, really delicious fruit which is much sweeter than any passion fruit. It grows in the tropical lowlands from Costa Rica in the north and French Guiana in the northeast, through wide parts of Brazil. It is similar to P. laurifolia, with orange-yellow fruits that have a sweet, succulent pulp. It is a fast-growing tropical vine. Its flowers are blue and red, a bit like P. laurifolia and P. quadrangularis. The fruits grow up to 2 in. It is tropical and should be protected from frost. The fruits are eaten fresh and very sweet, with no acid, yet very good in flavor. Passiflora nitida is also a useful fruit in a drink called Purple Passion.

Vallaris solanacea - Thai Cherry Vine

Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Thai Cherry, Scented Bread Flower, Asphota. This plant is a woody shrub with vining habit, close related to Vallaris glabra and Wrightia sp. Fragrant flowers resemble cherry flowers. They have an intense, interesting fragrance. The smell is said to be close to that of Pandan leaves, a relative of Kewda, which is used to flavor rice in some South-East Asian countries. An essential ingredient of the bunga rampai, the decorated arrangement of finely sliced, fragrant leaves used for Malay weddings. Can be trained as a compact bush and is good for container culture.
The plant can be trained into a nice small tree or trimmed into a shrub, but the best way is to let it go: the twisting branches form weird shapes. Slow growing plant, makes compact forms. The plant blooms profusely on and off during spring and summer. Relatively cold tolerant, will stand short period of cool weather. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
