Capsicum genus annuum chinense baccatum frutescens pubescens plus wild capsicum species.

capsicum genus annuum chinense baccatum frutescens pubescens plus wild capsicum species

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. The botantical 'genus' to which all chiles belong is Capsicum (CAP-see-coom), from the greek kapto meaning 'to bite'. Chile Facts. Thomas Etty Esq. - Heritage Vegetable & Flower Seeds.

Perennial Results: Plant View - Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola'

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. Hakonechloa is grown mainly for its beautiful foliage, though it does produce seed heads. Origin: Not Native to North America Characteristics: Native Plants of the Carolinas & Georgia. Welcome to!

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 is the berry of a climbing vine native to northeast China and parts of Russia. Last summer I visited the main area of Schisandra berry cultivation, in China’s northeast Liaoning province.

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.

Users may also simply type in a ZIP Code and find the hardiness zone for that area. No posters of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map have been printed. The International Plant Names Index - home page.
