The Clusia Mistake

Small-leaf Clusia has become extremely popular as a hedge plant.

It might be a good idea for a few years, but then you will find yourself faced with a terrible dilemma.

 

 

 

 


 

At right is a photo of a Jamaica Caper  Capparis cynophallophora.  It was planted in 1780, next to the First Government House in Bermuda.

This photo comes to us courtesy of  Don Kuhn, long-time native plant enthusiast (no, he didn't plant it, just took the photo).

We can thus conjecture that the locally indigenous plants that you install during your lifetime will be appreciated by the people of the 23rd Century.

What kind of a world would you like your progeny to inhabit?  It's not enough to just recycle your plastic!

We do not sell plants by mail order.  

If you can't find a certain plant in your area, maybe it's because what you're interested in won't work there.  

But, you still want it anyway?

They are perfectly welcome there!

The use of hedges is out of fashion, for several reasons.

Use the right plant in the right spot, and you will save yourself a lot of expense.

 Our focus is toward an appropriate mixture of native and tropical foliage plants, for use as accents and ornamentals, to transform your garden into a multi-dimensional paradise, getting away from European-style lawns, annual flowers and hedges.  We have an enormous array of heights, textures, colors, and shapes suitable for the Florida sub-tropical climate.   

  

We are open Monday to Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
