Nursery Open This Weekend Sat 9/8 & Sun 9/9 2012

Exotica Tropicals will be open this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday:

Saturday 9/8 from 9am to 2pm

Sunday 9/9 from 9am to 12 noon

Next week the nursery should be open during the week as well.. will post those hours here.. wanted to be open during this week, but as you surfers understand, we had some swell from Leslie ;)

I have some new additions at the nursery I’m just bringing in-

Red Feather Palms are here! These are very cool palms that have new fronds that emerge blood red in color and then fade to green over time.  I have a few large ones in my garden, and they are a definite favorite. See pics below.

I also more Tahitian Gardenia, Red-Form Hurricane Palms (burgundy colored new frond),Pink Ginger, Costus Barbatus (red tower ginger) and Costus Spiralis (red blooms)  as well as  some 2 foot tall Rainbow Eucalyptus, a 6 foot tall Ylang Ylang tree (awesomely fragrant flowers from which Chanel #5 is made- I will bring some flowers in with me from the garden) and 3 unique varieties of hibiscus:

Fiji Island” which has a very tropical looking fuschia/purple bloom in a nice star shape:

Chinese / Red Lantern“  a unique hibiscus that hangs down like a pendant- bright red, resembling a Chinese Lantern:

and “Hawaiian Salmon“  an unusual looking flower that is a creamy salmon color with a red/pink center with serrated/rippled edges:

All 3 are strong growers that are cared for like you would any common hibiscus in our area.

Here is a photo of the Red Feather palm in my garden putting out a new red frond earlier this summer (it had popped open an even bigger one not too long after this one came out)
