Abutilon pictum thompsonii is one of my favourite Abutilons with golden yellow variegated leaves and Orange lantern like flowers.

Bilbergia nutans variegata or Variegated Queen’s Tears 1 litre plants җ
Bilbergia nutans variegata is a lovely leaf variegated pink/green/white form of Billbergia nutans that makes a good conservatory plant and is also happy as a houseplant where it can live on a windowsill for years. It is often listed in magazines as one of the top ten houseplants that can tolerate almost total neglect. It is a bromeliad, related to the pineapple requiring a well drained, gritty soil. Water only when really necessary and feed only occasionally. Grown in full sun, the foliage loses some of its lustre but produces copious amounts of exotic pink flower spikes.

A very tall plant once it gets going with a red midrib to the very long thin leaves, the attractive red strip also continues down the stems. This is a rare collectors item and a must have for any exotic planting. Second year plants after over wintering in a warm frost free greenhouse and given good conditions will reach 10ft to 14ft.

Fatsia 'Spiders Web'

Variegated Japanese Aralia 1 litre plants җ җ

A lovely new form of Fatsia mainly grown for its large variegated foliage although clusters of white flowers are also produced in summer. The large 30cm icing dusted foliage is particularly attractive making a wonderful specimen plant for the exotic garden, eventually reaching 2m tall. Prefers some light dappled shade so useful for a dark corner and said to be hardy to -15C but I think some foliage damage would be inevitable at low temperatures without protection.

Tetrapanax papyrifera 'Rex'

JP3953
!

Rice Paper Plant 3 litre plants

This fabulous plant is a bit like a giant Fatsia japonica. Huge leaves to 3ft across, wonderfully eye catching and one of the most best plants for exotic effect. In all but the mildest and most sheltered gardens the leaves will be damaged by frost in the winter and best cut off in the following spring. It is fast growing maybe 3ft in a year but not suitable for windy or heavy frost prone locations. Suberban locations like a London garden should be ok but in countryside frost likely locations it will require some winter protection. Once established hardy to about -10c but much less as a small plant. Our form offered here is 'Rex' and the best of the clones balancing hardiness and vigour.
