By valleylynn on Apr 20, 2015 3:54 PM, concerning plant: Stonecrop (Sedum SunSparkler® Lime Twister)

This plant is a sport of Sedum Sunsparkler Lime Zinger. I'm happy to say that it is a very stable sport. Tough plant for full sun. It occasionally grows a sprig of cream colored foliage that only adds interest to an already interesting sedum.

By dyzzypyxxy on Apr 20, 2015 3:51 PM, concerning plant: (Gaillardia 'Punch Bowl')

This cultivar was described as "rose and cream" on the seed packet. I'm a little disappointed that the color looks very similar to all the other Gaillardias I've grown, only perhaps a little faded. The flowers are only just starting, so maybe as the plants mature, the color will become more pronounced.
