Hi Newt :)
I bought a packet of seeds from the "Muttart Conservatory" in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and they were from *i think* Costa Rica and were for a tree called a "Naked Tree". The packet said the tree grows quickly and as I recall it produces flowers and *i think* just before the flowers come out (or just after), all the leaves fall off and it's just a bare tropical tree with flowers. Only one seed out of 6 has come to anything, but this one is green green green and i can literally watch it grow during the day... it's amazing!
I got the seeds a couple years ago but I could try to track some down for you if you like... let me know ;)
Oh, and I forgot to mention I have seven varieties of coleus growing in my house, which add colour, variety, texture :) ...greens, yellows, pinks, purples, blacks...
