Kaduri KKL, Eucalyptus gomphocephala 'Kaduri KKL' hybrid

Unmistakable in appearance, the Eucalyptus is commonly thought of as a tree with grey-green leaves, an open head, and often bark which, on trees of 5+ years, is shredded annually. However some species are in fact shrubs. Juvenile plants produce round or oval leaves, much used in flower arrangements. Older plants produce lance shaped leaves. Most species are tender however some can tolerate light frost and others, temperatures as low as -20C. All are thirsty plants, fast-growing, and aromatic.The 'Kaduri KKL' hybrid is a very unique hybrid which was propagated from cuttings of eucalyptus gomphocephala that grew into bush-like trees only 1.5 - 2 meters tall. Now frequently used as a hedging plant.

Kaempferia galanga, Lesser Galanga

Galangal is a root in the ginger family. It looks similar to ginger, although a little paler in colour, but the flavour is more spicy and pungent than ginger, and it is harder to grow, as it requires quite specific conditions. Galangal is very sensitive to frost, and is susceptible to rotting if water-logged. It is a tropical plant, and so in temperate climes is best suited to being grown in a container indoors. Lesser galanga is a small, stemless rhizomatous plant growing up to 45cm with thick, rounded leaves that form a rosette lying on the ground

Kaempferia Parviflora, Thai black ginger

Black Galangal is a root in the ginger family. It is sensitive to frost, and is susceptible to rotting if water-logged. It is a tropical plant, and so in temperate climes is best suited to being grown in a container indoors. The leaves are like hosta leaves and the orchid-like flowers, which are borne near the base of the plant, are small, white and streaked with dark-red veining.

Kahli Ginger Lily, Hedychium gardnerianum

Ginger Lilies are flowering, perennial, rhizomatous plants with stout, reed-like stems which carry lanceolate sheathing leaves in two parallel ranks. The stems are topped with spikes of orchid-like flowers that are often fragrant. Gingers vary from frost hardy, to tender green-house or conservatory plants, and protection from cold will help even hardy varieties to flower, so a solution in cold areas is to grow in containers, and move the containers outdoors in the warmer months. Wet conditions are sometimes a worse enemy than cold, so make sure the plants are going to be protected from very wet conditions, and that the soil in which they are grown is very free-draining. 'Hedychium gardnerianum' grows up to 2m, and bears "bottlebrush"-type clusters of fragrant, lemon-yellow flowers with prominent red stamens in late Summer to early Autumn

Kahmir Cypress, Cupressus Cashmeriana

Cypress is native to mainly warm temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere. It is a conifer with needle-like juvenile leaves on young seedlings up to a year old, and scale-like adult leaves. The foliage grows in flat sprays. Many species are grown as ornamental trees with a variety of cultivars available with different traits from dwarf varieties to golden foliage. Cupressus cashmeriana is a conical-shaped tree that gets broader with age. It bears long, flat, pendulous sprays of glaucous blue scale-like leaves

Kaka Beak, Clianthus maximus

Clianthus puniceus - Red Lobster Claw - is an evergreen climber with 6in pinnate leaves with 13 - 25 leaflets. The flowers are bright and shaped like a lobster's claw - hence the common name. The plant can tolerate a little frost in a sheltered location, and can partially lose its leaves with no long term ill effect. However, in more frost-prone areas, it is best grown indoors or in the greenhouse. Clianthus maximus is a large Red Lobster Claw - bigger plant, bigger flowers and "biggger" colour!

Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana 'Magic Bells', Kalanchoe 'Magic Bells'

KALANCHOE BLOSSFELDIANA MAGIC BELLS - A succulent with fleshy broad notched leaves surrounding a central stem maturing to 18" . It produces a cathredral of pale green bells atop the stem . The bells open to orange flowers. A unique easy houseplant. The Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana Cultivar 'Magic Bells', originally from Madagascar, is indeed magic and albeit quite alien when compared to most of its brethren, which normally have compact and bright flowers. Magic Bells have fleshy broad leaves, which are slightly jagged, surrounding a central stem holding the most fascinating flowers as if they were put on a pedestal. From the tall spire of the stem, the flowers dangle like bell-shaped green grapes that delicately open up with a soft tangerine colored lantern like bloom. They need to be in sun in order to thrive, but can sometimes get burnt if outside in direct sun all day in warmer climates during the summer. They have moderate to minimal watering needs -- allow the soil to dry and do not keep too wet or they will rot. Make sure that they are potted in a well-draining mix and avoid keeping the foliage wet. They bloom for 8-10 weeks and are triggered into flowering by dry spells and short days. Magic Bells are a great plant to have around during the winter, reminding you of spring soon to come. When it is done with its winter bloom, have some patience and move it outside to use in combination container plantings and another flower show will come soon. When you are selecting your Magic Bell, choose one that still has buds yet-to-open so that you can stretch out the enjoyment of the bloom that much longer.
