    The variegated glossy arrowhead shaped foliage has dark green veining and lighter patches in between. The Little Brown Jug plant, Hexastylis arifolia var. arifolia, is a clump forming evergreen perennial native to much of the southeastern US as far west as eastern Louisiana (where these plants originated). It is typically found in shaded, well-drained sandy loam soils. It gets its name from the interesting purple to brown jug shaped flowers that lay on the ground at the base of the plant and are produced in summer. A member of the Aristolochiaceae family, Dutchman's Pipe family, but is not a host for the Pipevine Swallowtail as far as we know. Little Brown Jugs makes a nice addition to shaded gardens and can also be enjoyed as a low maintenance container plant. Item# 11766

    Rounded clusters of nectar-rich lavender flowers develop into showy conical clusters of rich purple berries and are produced throughout the warmer months of the year to year-round under warm tropical conditions. Three-Leaf Lantana is an unusual species in that it is grown as much or more for its fruit than its flowers. This is a small-ish tropical shrub with a naturally upright to spreading habit and makes an easy container specimen and can be used in combination in medium-sized to large containers. Provide a full to mostly sunny position in well-drained fertile soils for optimum flower and fruit production. Item# 11698
