Justicia brandegeana and Pachystachys lutea are both members of the family Acanthaceae and both commonly known as Shrimp Plants or Brazilian Plumes. These plants are pan-tropical in origin and form very showy blooms which resemble shrimp.

A wonderful small tree which features masses of showy golden yellow tubular flowers on a nearly leafless tree in the spring. Tabebuia is an absolutely spectacular deciduous small tree for spring-time color.
Dazzling, vibrant and intensely colored flowers, evergreen and velvety leaves -- Tibouchina is the perfect evergreen shrub to add a touch of the exotic to your garden.

Tillandsias. are members of the Bromeliaceae family and only perch on their host plants deriving no nutrition from them -- they are not a parasitic plant .
