Other plants for August 2016: Tecoma esperanza 'Yellow Elder', Portulacaria afra 'Elephant bush' & Rosemarinus officinalis, 'BBQ' Rosemary.
Tecoma esperanza, this spreading, fast-growing evergreen shrub or small tree is noted for its brilliant, bell-shaped, fragrant yellow flowers. Reaching full bloom in fall, yellow elder produces some flowers with each flush of new growth and therefore has some color most of the year. Portulacaria afra is a soft-wooded, semi-evergreen upright shrub or small tree, similar in appearance to the "jade plant" Crassula ovata. Elephant bush has smaller and rounder pads and more compact growth. It is much hardier, faster growing, more loosely branched, and has more limber tapering branches once established. BBQ Rosemary is for gardeners who like to cook out. The stems are sturdy enough to be used as skewers for shish kabob, and while cooking, your grilled items are infused with the particularly appealing rosemary flavor of this variety.
