PLANTS FOR SUCCULENT WREATHS
60969 APTENIA SPECIES WHITE FLOWER AIZ TGH HP PRICE: $4.00 Curious deeply and dramatically cascading
vine with white starry blossoms produced with great abandon. May be a Delosperma species--still in debate. A popular favorite among hobbyists for outdoor summer urns and windowboxes when the design demands a reliable rapidly cascading accent plant--that is, a dependable "spiller." As long as this succulent trailer is warm and sunny, it will tolerate considerable moisture.
60017 CEROPEGIA LINEARIS WOODII ASC HP TGH PRICE: $ 3.50 "Rosary Vine" or "String of Hearts" Thread-like vine with large "rosary bead" tubercles and small pairs of heart-leaves designed with bright silver surfaces. Dependable tried and true houseplant unless you overwater!
60259 CRASSULA MARGINALIS CRA HP TGH PRICE: $ 3.25"String of Buttons" The opposite oval red-edged button leaves fuse around the stem like some Eucalyptus. Perfect much branching small statured subject for hanging baskets, fine on succulent wreaths.
66038 HATIORA (RHIPSALIS) SALICORNIOIDES CAC HP TGH PRICE: $ 3.00 "Drunkard's Dream" or "Dancing Bones" Epiphytic Rhipsalis cousin with stiftly arching thickly-branched sprays of bottle-shaped branchlets tipped with yellow flowers fading to salmon; soon makes a wonderful windowsill potplant (or with time, a stunning hanging basket subject) with very regularly dividing bone shaped stem section forming a very symetrical outline. Distinct from and quite unlike its Rhipsalis kin in that the "Drunkard's Dream" has stem segments which are determinate, meaning in botanical terms that each little bottle shaped segment has a predetermined size and shape when it starts to be formed. Usually shipped as URCuttings in dry moss.
65413 HAWORTHIA UBOMBOENSIS LIL PRICE: $ 6.50 The unique "False Tillandsia" has the stoloniferous character and stiff open rosette of H. limifolia (under which it has been classified); however the pale green smooth leaves lack any ridging. Handsome unique species turning liliac in bright light. Stoloniferous habit makes this popular in mossed topiary and in mossed succulent wreaths as offsets pop out randomly after burrowing below.
60094 HOYA LACUNOSA ASC HP TGH PRICE: $ 8.75 Tassel-like pendant umbels of fuzzy lemon-greenish white flowers with lemon centers and soft fragrance (a very clean aroma) perfectly match the dwarf-statured quilted leaves; the name derives form the lacunose leaf surface. That is, the surface of the leaf is cupped or depressed between the veins. Malaysian native beautifully displayed in small baskets to present the dangling scented flower clusters easily or trained on a moss topiary. Certainly the least challenging small statured cascading species to easily bloom as a houseplant. If not currently in pots, easily shipped as an unrooted cutting in moss.
65827 LEDEBOURIA SOCIALIS LIL HP TGH PRICE: $ 3.75 Formerly Scilla violacea. "Silver Squill" Rich purple swollen bulblets in thick clusters support small violet- backed leaves whose surfaces are dotted silver. Easy houseplant with small wands of tiny white flowers produced seasonally. If allowed to become a many-headed specimen, the winter blooms can be quite impressive en mass.
68154 SANSEVIERIA SENEGAMBICA [CORNUI] AGA HP TGH PRICE: $ 3.50 Short upright curved leaves flattening toward the tip end with a slim point, the surface a matte-green with faint banding. Good compact waxy leaved species with reddish rhizomes & violet-white flowerss. If grown in a moss or coconut fiber basket, it loves to send forth stolons thru the medium to emerge through the fiber to form new plantlets resulting in an amazing "globe" of foliage being achieved--a trick also endearing this very compact grower to designers of succulent wreaths. Very easily grown houseplant with the endearing trick of elevating itself up out of its container--not very fussy about light intensities.
68162 SANSEVIERIA SUBSPICATA [HORT] AGA HP TGH PRICE: $ 4.75 This clone we have is from Manda's collection, representing the most easily grown form most common in USA--Deep green-black undulate wide leaves on slender petioles, with bright horned edges; the very short leaves overlap in irregular tostled rosettes. Tolerant of much neglect. Some customers enjoy starting this in a mossed wire topiary whereupon it gradually sticks out its meandering stolons to form writhing rosettes of foliage eventually covering the entire surface--quite wonderful, although requiring patience. This stoloniferous trick also endears this very compact plant with succulent wreath designers as well. We hope not to be accused of shameless price gouging on this guy.
