Contact me when it is warm enough to ship and I will send you some fresh cut
branches of the Var. cassava/manihot/tapioca, this is how it is propagated.

>>Once every few months I slip a non-aroid question into this group. It's
A surprise cold snap associated with a bigger surprising horrific work
schedule caused me to just let a few plants die in my garden.
The variegated tapioca - Manihot esculenta variegata - is one of my
favorite non-aroids and it rolled over dead with the cold snap. I brought
the tuber in but it will undoubtedly do nothing. (I've tried this one
before but the tubers don't seem to send anything up regardless of how long
I'll be in the northeastern part of Miami visiting family in January. I
may head down to Fairchild during that trip. Does anyone in this group
know of a garden center or nursery near any of those parts of Miami that
might carry Manihot? Ideally I'd like to find a small one that would
easily fit into a carry-on bag.
Even though this might be pushing my luck, how about small passion flowers
aside from the easily available alato-caerulea?
