Darryl’s Discoveries

These Specimens are Limited-Time/Limited Quantity

Welcome to my collection of unique plants from the remote corners of our nurseries. I regularly stumble upon some amazing finds – specimens you’ve probably not seen before, and won’t find anywhere else. I’m excited to share my discoveries.

Don’t take too long to decide which you want – these beauties go quickly, and they are first-come first-served.

We’re constantly adding new plants, so check back each week to see what’s new.

Anthurium Big Splash

This everblooming Anthurium has large heart-shaped leaves that are nearly 3ft long when mature. The upright, structured shape of this plant makes it an excellent container plant as well as a landscape focal point in the garden. The flowers are elongated with attractive hues of maroon and green. The Big Splash anthurium is a hybrid between the Spectible X Watermaliense and is extremely rare and very hard to find in cultivation. These fully grown specimens come in a 14” pot and are 4.5-5ft tall x about 4.5ft wide!

Monstera Adansonii

Super Deal!! Look at the size of these monsters! The “Swiss Cheese Plant” is instantly recognizable with its uniquely shaped leaves featuring multiple oval holes. Botanists theorize the holes allow sun and water to reach the lower leaves, and enable the plant to stand up to strong winds. They love to climb when supported by a trellis or a pole. The plant thrives in low light, and does well indoors under fluorescent or LED light.

As you can see, these plants are WAY overgrown on their 4ft stakes. Each plant could easily be trained onto a much larger pole or divided into many babies. The grower (and I) would rather sell them at a lower price before he cuts them back. Take advantage of this situation and grab one of these babies before they’re hacked back!

Ficus Altissima – SOLD OUT

I have only 1 of these incredible ficus altissima trees. It stands at about 6ft tall and almost 4ft wide. The Ficus Altissima, or Asian Council Tree, is an eye-catching tree with lemon-lime variegation. This beautiful tree is easy to keep as a containerized plant indoor, in the patio or in a tropical garden. The crisp variegation and pale veins of this ficus is creates a lively and bright atmosphere.

Qty Available: 1 in a 14” pot


Ficus Elastica Decora ‘Compacta’ – SOLD OUT

This sport of the Ficus Elastica Décora was discovered and propagated by a local nursery. Whereas its cousins such as the burgundy and decora can get quite large, this one is a bit more compact with smaller, narrow leaves. The leaves have a classy, upscale look with shades of green and maroon. You won’t find this plant anywhere else, and there aren’t many available from the nursery.

OBI Island Palm

Want something really cool and unique that everyone will envy? The Hydriastele beguinii ‘ Obi Island’ is a spectacular palm with very distinctive solid (non-split) leaves. Originally from the Obi Islands in Indonesia, this rare and unusual palm is slow growing and makes a bold statement as an indoor palm or garden specimen. This palm is a better option than others for tight spaces because of its somewhat slender form. Its neat look and glossy dark green foliage scream tropical rainforest. I found a very limited number of these in a shippable size. Each one is about 6ft tall in a 14” pot.

Whale Fin Snake Plant

Nicknamed the Whale Fin, the Sansevieria Masoniana features uniquely shaped paddle-like leaves. Though slow growing, the Whale Fin can reach a truly impressive size compared to other members of the genus. Its leaves have a distinctive mottled dark and light green pattern that adds a lovely touch to any room. You usually find whale fins selling as single leaf cuttings, but our plants are fully rooted and full with 3-5 leaves.

Qty Available: 15 in 10” pots
