Purple buds open to reveal apricot shades of flowers on Erysimum 'Apricot Twist', a non-hardy perennial that thrives in sunny locations with soils that dry between irrigations. This plant forms bushy mounds in warm winter climates (USDA zone 7 - 9) that benefit from cutting back in July to rejuvenate the plant.

Ranunculus asiaticus 'Mache™ Pastel Mix' is a seed-grown strain of Persian buttercup that features fully double orange, scarlet, and yellow blooms above dark green foliage that grows to 16 inches in height during cool weather. When temperatures warm, the plants stop growing and store their nutrients in bulbs. For this reason, the seeds are sown in a cool greenhouse in winter, six weeks before bloom time. The bulbs, which resemble a hand with fingers, are hardy to 10 degrees Farenheit.

Bush lily (Clivia miniata) is a member of the Amaryllidaceae family native to damp woodlands in southern Africa, where they grow in the forests of Kwazulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Mpumalanga, and Swaziland. They do not occur naturally anywhere else. Their habitat ranges from subtropical coastal forests to ravines in high-altitude forests, where they thrive in dappled shade in well drained, humus-rich soil.

Cameron's Magnetism dwarf cattelya orchid (x Potinara Cameron's Magnetism) is a member of the Orchidaceae family. Potinara is a manmade genus created from several species of cattleya-type orchids. The genus consists of grandparents from Brassovola, Cattleya, Laelia, and Sophronitis. These varieties seem well suited for home culture, due to hybridization and their small size.

Chirita (Chirita 'Aiko') is an interesting member of the African violet (Gesneriaceae) family, an excellent choice for the windowsill or light garden. A hybrid of C. eburnea and C. subrhomboidea, it reaches a compact height of 6 to 12 inches with yellow flower sprays clustered on the ends of the outreaching stems. The abundant, bright yellow flowers open one at a time from buds at the end of the flowering stalks, above medium green, quilted foliage.

Bat plant (Tacca chantrieri) has deep purple, almost black bracts on tall, 20-inch flowering stems. The flowers, which can grow up to 10 inches long, superficially resemble a bat in flight with long whiskers. The foliage of this unusual-looking shade-loving plant resembles Spathiphyllum, and its color and odor attract bats and flies to achieve cross-pollination.

Roy Tokunaga orchid (Dendrobium Roy Tokunaga) is a cross between Dendrobium johnsoniae and Dendrobium atroviolaceum, and its main feature is an incredibly long bloom time: it begins to flower in November, and continues blooming for close to six months.

Tilt Head aloe (Aloe speciosa 'Tilt Head') is a tall, erect, handsome aloe that reaches a height of 9 to nearly 20 feet in height. The serrated leaves are pale bluish-green, often tinged pink at the tips and edges with small, red teeth. Dense cylindrical flower heads of red buds open greenish-white. This species is easy to distinguish, with its head of rosette leaves tilting to catch maximum amount of sunlight.

Rondeletia leucophylla is often sold under the name of Panama rose, even though it is actually a native of Chiapas, Mexico. This bushy, large shrub produces masses of pink flowers virtually all year when planted in the ground in a conservatory. Both hummingbirds and butterflies are attracted to the flowers, which, interestingly, don't become fragrant until after the sun goes down — suggesting that it may be pollinated by moths as well.

Pink Sapphire No. 4 orchid (Dendrobium Burana 'Pink Sapphire No. 4') produces spikes of brilliantly colored pink flowers in winter. This cultivar is one of the 'cane orchids' that produce thickened pseudobulbs whose leaves sometimes drop before the flower spike begins to grow from near the end of the cane. The genus Dendrobium is one of the easiest for Chicago-area gardeners to successfully grow and reflower in their homes.

x Citrofortunella mitis is commonly known as calamondin orange, and as the "x" in front of the genus name denotes, it is a hybrid between species in two different genera — an oddity in the plant world. Citrus reticulata (a tangerine) was crossed with Fortunella margarita (the Nagami kumquat) to create a small fruited hybrid with a loose skin and very bitter pulp, whose juice can be used like lemon or lime juice. This hybrid of Philippine origin can survive a few degrees of frost.
