Evergreen shrubs are an important choice to consider for planting, in order to insure green color presence during the gloomy days of winter. Many gardeners want an evergreen shrub as a hedge to maintain privacy when cold weather arrives. Anise, Illicium florianum grows into small hedges in resorts like Sea Island, Georgia, and exotic red flowers and liquorish aromas rise from the leaves in the summer. Acuba japonica variegata 'Gold Dust' is also called the Gold Dust plant. Acuba makes an interesting low growing shrub to plant and grow next to brick buildings. Cleyera, Ternstroemia gymanthera, is an interesting shrub for coastal areas, because Cleyera shrubs are very tolerant of salt water spray, and the waxy green leaves have a unique tropical appearance in the landscape. Boxwood, Buxus microphylla asiaticum, is also salt water tolerant with dense coloring throughout the zones 5 9. Boxwood is one of the most important and popular shrubs to buy in the U.S, notably as a neat, clean grower, Boxwood is not fast growing, thus requiring many years to reach 3 feet in height. Boxwood plants are commonly planted in rows along walkways. Larger boxwood plants work nicely in group plantings in front of buildings
The peace lily is another plant that doesn't require a lot of light and the leaves tend to go yellow when they are placed in a position that receives direct sunlight. Although the peace lily likes to do be watered often it grows better when it is allowed to dry out between watering. Visually the plant is very attractive with dark green leaves and white flowers.
Leyland cypress, Cupressocyparis leylandii, is a fast growing shrub, that most often is planted as a privacy hedge, but in many cases can grow into a large Leyland cypress specimen tree that might reach 130 feet. The Leyland cypress shrub (tree) is a fast growing intergenetic hybrid. Erosion control can be obtained fast by planting these vigorous Leyland cypress shrubs to embed their roots rapidly into the soil and cool the earth.
Acacias contain a number of alkaloids that have a profound Hallucinogenic effect on humans. These alkaloids include Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). The leaves and stems are brewed together with an effective monoamine oxidase inhibitior (MAOI) containing plant typically Syrian Rue (Peganum harmala) that also grows in the same region (southern Israel and the Sinai Peninsula). This brew is taken orally similar to the Amazonian brew Ayahuasca that is also a combination of at least one other plant, typically the leaves of the Chacruna plant (Psychotria Viridis) that contain the vision-inducing alkaloids (DMT) and the Ayahuasca vine itself (Banisteriopsis caapi) that acts as an inhibitor to prevent the bodys enzymes from neutralising the Tryptamine alkaloids. This is known as the MAOI effect that was discovered by Western science in the 1950s and forms the working basis for pharmaceutical products such as Prozac.
