Unicarina flowers

U. roeoesliana and U. peltata. The roeosliana has the darker larger flowers.

Lovely again! Are these hard to grow?

Nice. Here are a couple more Uncarinas in bloom at the LA arboretum and the Huntington. I was told the second plant flowers 10 months out of the year.

All of you, thank you for sharing your great photos. It's a beautiful plant.

I have the best luck here in Phoenix with Uncarina roeoesliana. It probably depends on where you live as to how easy they are.

Updates on my Uncarinas. I got a bloom on my U. grandidieri for the first time. Its a pretty big plant, around 24inches tall and needs a lot of water this time of year. I think MG helped too. Sorry the pictures aren't too good but I have trouble getting good yellow flower pictures.
I also have a seed pod developing (kind of interesting) on what I thought was a U. pelota (see above) but I am not too sure since I am finding pictures of their flowers as having maroon throats, the same as what I thought was the U. grandidieri. So it isn't as clear to me as I once thought.

Wow, Helen, I love the seed pod. I've only seen in photos; never had one myself!

Me too Nancy. I will try and get pictures when and if it changes and matures.

Somewhere I seem to remember that those seed pods are treacherous. Be careful!

The only safe way to handle them is with Pliers. If they get on you it is very painful to get it off.

The plant is one of my smaller Uncarina's and the pot was a ...... take guess. Came out one AM and their he has.

Cute little opossum. I hope you let him go about his business.
The leaves on that plant look more like an Operculicarya decaryi although the trunk looks too smooth. Possibly an O. borealis

The Operculicarya decaryi is in back of Uncarina but some of the branch's are in front of the Uncarina. That's why it looks like that. The little opossum was sent on his way to visit some other day.
