I like to grow trees, shrubs, perennials from Asia. I especially like growing stuff from seed.
Look forward to hearing from members in Asia but of course anyone who loves growing plants from Asia also.
I'd love to try growing Mucuna birdwoodiana and Mucuna sempervirens--if I could find seed.
Here in Northern Thailand Mucuna Benettii is very easy to find (at flower market for 2 to 3 US$) - also with the same look (but not the same specie) Stronglyodon Macrobotrys !
I just had a look in google for birdwoodiana - it seems well known in Hkong -
Not quite sure how to define asian ornamentals. I grow bromeliads, draceana, heliconia, ginger, palms, lotus, cyathea, platycerium, angiopteris, pachypodium, papyrus, cycad, yucca, acer, colocasia, pitcher plants,lavender ....
Just curious to know which Acer species you grow.
Thanks! And welcome to the forum!
Honestly I don't know which type of maple tree I'm having. Unlike the Canadian or Australia maple tree that has big leaves, mine has small leaves with a length of 2 inches(just like the Japanese maple). Because here is all year Summer, so I have to remove the leaves twice a year so that I can enjoy the seasonal color change of the leaves.
