capsicum genus annuum chinense baccatum frutescens pubescens plus wild capsicum species capsicum genus annuum chinense baccatum frutescens pubescens plus wild capsicum species Capsicum terminology is very confusing with Pepper, chilli, chile, chili, aji, paprika and capsicum all used interchangeably to describe the plants and pods of the genus Capsicum. We have chosen to use 'chile' as this is the most common terminology used in the UK. It is believed Chiles were first cultivated by the people of Central and South America in around 7000BC and there are now a bewildering range of over 3000 known varieties ranging from the mildest bell pepper to the fiery hot habanero.

Perennial Results: Plant View - Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' An intriguing grass for the shade which is perfect for the formal Japanese garden. Variegated but nearly all yellow, the leaf blades have narrow green stripes, mostly near the margins. Perhaps its most fascinating attribute is the cascading habit in which most of the leaves arch in the same direction, appearing much like a golden waterfall. Plant this grass where it will cascade down slopes, drape over rocks, crawl over the edges of walls, at the front of the garden, or even in containers. Though this grass does spread by stolons, it is a slow grower and will not rapidly overtake its neighbors. When grown in part shade, the yellow tones in the leaves will be most pronounced.

Yes, Schisandra is a berry, but don’t think of it as another superfruit like goji or acai. Think strange, exotic, and only used for medicine. The berry of Schisandra chinensis owes its name Wu Wei Zi (five flavored berry) to the fact that it is sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent. Nobody eats this stuff with yogurt. Rather, Schisandra berry is made into various medicinal preparations for longevity and overall vitality. The first time I ever experienced Schisandra, I was in northeast China with some people involved in the medicinal plant trade. Schisandra: Ultimate Superberry | Medicine Hunter

Wild Plants of Malta - Main Page (by Stephen Mifsud) Vegetation of the Maltese Islands by Edwin Lanfranco Introduction Due to the position of the Maltese Islands in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea the Maltese flora has affinities with the floras of all the regions of the Mediterranean and thus one finds species with eastern, western and North African affinities. As is to be expected the Maltese flora is most similar to that of Sicily, especially to that of the Hyblean Region (South-Eastern Sicily), to which the Maltese Islands were intermittently attached until about 12,000 years ago. The Maltese vascular flora comprises about 1100 species of which some 800 are presumably indigenous, the rest being naturalised aliens.
THE POISON GARDEN website ...because every garden is a poison garden. The purpose of THE POISON GARDEN website is to provide insights, many of them amusing, into the human race's long relationship with substances which have the potential to cause harm. Since the beginning of June 2011, I've been writing a blog about poisonous plants, especially current news stories when a plant is involved.

Plant Hardiness Zone Map USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map The 2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is the standard by which gardeners and growers can determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones. For the first time, the map is available as an interactive GIS-based map, for which a broadband Internet connection is recommended, and as static images for those with slower Internet access.
