Tropical Plants from Excelsa Gardens

For serious and passionate gardeners like myself, gardening is about color, form, and variety - I especially like rare and unusual plants.

During my recent business trip to Florida, I purchased several specimens from Excelsa Gardens in Loxahatchee Groves, a wonderful and charming nursery specializing in hard-to-find exotic tropicals. Among the plants I brought home - Euphorbia stenoclada, Licuala grandis, Dieffenbachia 'Camouflage', Philodendron 'Black Gold', Medinilla magnifica, and a Bismarckia nobibilis palm.

Here are some photos.
