The original specimens were sent to Kew by the explorer Galeotti in 1834, from an unspecified location in central Mexico Cultivation: Although Agave attenuata survives in poor soils, it does best in rich soils ( 2 parts peat moss to 1 part loam to 1 part sand). The plant is extremely drought tolerant but does better with ample moisture. As plants get older, they produce stout trunks up to 5 ft. tall, and form clumps to 5 ft. across.

Pachysandra
  Pachysandra June 19, 2010
This Green Carpet is deservedly one of the most widely used ground covers. It is handsome and foolproof, thriving even in the dense shade of evergreens! Try it along shady walks, in enclosed courtyards, and on steep terraces in either partial sun or shade. Food Uses: Fruit - raw or cooked. Sweet and juicy. The fruit is not usually produced in cultivation - this could be because both male and female plants are required and most people only grow one plant. Cultivation: Best grown in organically Pachysandra

Alumroot
  Alumroot June 09, 2010
Called coral bells because of its terra cotta-colored flowers, can be found in the warm, dry canyons of Arizona. Though tangy and slightly astringent, the leaves may be used to liven up bland greens. Natives of the Northwest U.S. have used tonic derived of Alumroot roots to aid digestive difficulties, but extractions from the root can also be used to stop minor bleeding, reduce inflammation, and otherwise shrink moist tissues after swelling. These were super tiny flowers. Saxifrage means Rock Alumroot

Star-of-Bethlehem
  Star-of-Bethlehem June 02, 2010
Star-of-Bethlehem causes potential threats to native vegetation. It has been sold as an ornamental and has escaped to become a weed of landscapes, pastures, hayfields, turf grass, and lawns. The name Star of Bethlehem is mainly in allusion to the six-pointed blooms, but may also have come about because it was used as a famine food by medieval pilgrims to the Holy Land & was to be found growing all around Bethelehem, perhaps planted there by the Christian pilgrims. It was known in Europe in a Star-of-Bethlehem

Cattail
  Cattail May 30, 2010
The Klamath and Modocs of northern California and southern Oregon make flexible baskets of twined tule or cattail. Cattails or tules were also twined to form mats of varying sizes for sleeping, sitting, working, entertaining, covering doorways, for shade, and a myriad of other uses. The Cahuilla Indians used the stalks for matting, bedding material, and ceremonial bundles. Some tribes used the leaves and sheath bases as caulking materials. Apaches used the pollen in female puberty ceremonies. Af Cattail

Windmill Palm
  Windmill Palm January 05, 2010
Trachycarpus fortunei has been cultivated in China and Japan for thousands of years, grown for its coarse but very strong leaf sheath fibre, used for making ropes, sacks, and other coarse cloth where great strength is important. The extent of this cultivation means that the exact natural range of the species is uncertain. The Windmill Palm can handle cold, even snow for a short period of time. Its tolerance of cool summers makes it highly valued by palm enthusiasts as the palm that can be cultiv Windmill Palm

  Dumbcane December 14, 2009
Dieffenbachia plants can grow outdoors in tropical climates, but specimens kept as houseplants must be kept indoors during most of the year outside the tropics. Temperatures below about 5˚C (40˚F) can kill the plant. The plant needs light but filtered sunlight through a window is usually sufficient. When the plant is brought home from the nursery, it will likely need repotting. The plant needs moderately moist soil. The soil should be fertilized with either regular liquid ferti Dumbcane
