Caladium ′Florida Sweetheart′
Santa Cruz Water-platter
Young water-platter leaves emerge from the water as a green roll of prickle and soon transform into large, floating plates with an upturned rim. Victoria platters grow at an astonishing rate. At maturity, the leaf can reach diameters of six feet and can support more than 80 pounds of evenly-distributed weight. Water-platters flower for two nights. The first night flower is white and fragrant, while the second night flower is pink.

Franklinia, or the Franklin tree is a small deciduous tree in the camellia family. It was first discovered by the Philadelphia based botanists John and William Bartram on the banks of the Alatamaha River in Georgia in 1765. William Bartram collected seed in 1773, and successfully cultivated the plant at the Bartram gardens in Philadelphia. Bartram named the new plant
Franklinia alatamaha in honor of his father’s friend Benjamin Franklin. It is a unique tree as it is the only species in its genus, and it is now extinct in the wild.
