This Saturday and Sunday was Heathcote's annual spring bonsai and garden show while I was attending I took some pictures for you guys with curator Patrick Giacobbe. Later, after my day job I will post somemore pics.

I would have liked to come down, but it is 100 miles each way for me. I was there last fall on my way south on other business.

Wow, thank you Regi, what inspiration!!!
I didnt even know that you get a dwarf schefflera, is it from Hawaii?

I noticed that Portulacaria afra is labled wrong, Portulacaria afra is NOT a Jade tree, its a 'Spekboom' (Porkbush) or Elephant bush the first name giving to it was by the Zulu's - iGwanitsha.

Carassula ovata, or new name Crassula argentea is the Jade tree, Botterboom (Butter tree) Money plant or the first name given to it was by the Khoi - t'karkai. ( you say the t' with a click of the tongue.)

Yep theres a dwarf, I have both variety's the dwarf grows much slower though. I also agree with the Portulacaria being called a jade, but most people use that as a common name still. I think even home depot labels it as such. Also the rain tree is labeled wrong, well the name changed to Chloroleucon tortum

I would never use Home Depot or any of the big box stores as a guide to naming plants.
