The plants listed on these
pages are not generally found at the big-box stores or chain nurseries.
They are found in (A) area nurseries who propagate some of what they sell, or (B) specialist
nurseries, both local and regional, or (C) mail order nurseries, domestic
and overseas, or (D) in their habitat and you'll collect seed or cuttings
(as I have) and bring them home. Even those plants found at one of
the first four sources will not be available year-round, you'll need to
plan and be patient. Having a unique landscape beautified with the
unusual and the exotic is not easy or inexpensive.
If you are one of the many
who is uncomfortable with Latin names, please try the following.
Select one of the plants and click on the link to its Family page, most
plants there will have common as well as botanical names. If you
need a description or photograph of a plant, use its botanical name to
run an internet search.
