Podachaenium chiapanum, 20 seeds
Here is yet another rarely seen subtropical tree from the cloud forest of Central America. Like its cousin P. eminens, this one too has white daisy flowers with a yellow central patch, characteristics of most plants in the Aster/Daisy family. On a summer day, you can detect a faint baby-powder scent from them. Even harder to find that its cousin, this particular species is endemic to Chiapas, Mexico and has a longer season of bloom. Can be differentiated by its beautiful glossy green lanceolata leaves, just as tropical-looking and in better proportion to the huge clusters of flowers. All species of Podachaenium are not to be confused with the Montanoa species which have vanilla-scented flowers and very attractive seedheads. Hardy to zone 8. 30 feet tall, 10 feet wide. Full sun and part shade. Exclusive seeds, harvested 04/2013.
