Wild Iris RowsWild Iris Rows
By Sharon, June 29, 2015

I stood on a little knoll and looked around me. It was like nothing I'd ever seen, acres and acres of color spread out like a treasured old patchwork quilt made of random shapes and sizes. It was pieced together with strips of green and shades of brown that gently covered the rolling hills. It was an iris farm and every plant seemed to be blooming in glorious color!

Start with a cutting that still has its growing tip. Put in a small cane to support it as it grows. Keep potting on so that it does not get pot-bound.

By scflowers on Jul 4, 2015 2:04 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Flamingo Fantasy')

Although not listed specifically as a rebloomer, Flamingo Fantasy consistently reblooms each year in my garden. It is usually one of my first to bloom at the beginning of the season, and reblooms just as most other late bloomers are fading. Beautiful plant foliage also.

Growing this tomato for the first time this year. It has a number of green tomatoes on it already. It started setting fruit while we had temps in the high 80's and even a few 90 degree days in June. I know this one as Arkansas Traveler.

By plantrob on Jul 4, 2015 1:02 PM, concerning plant: Cedarglade St. Johnswort (Hypericum frondosum)

The Hypericum frondosum 'Sunburst', the great-granddaddy of all my current specimens, was a fine specimen, holding court atop our rock garden with a rounded habit and large yellow flowers. Its offspring, which I don't consider to be 'Sunburst', are still nice plants, but their habit is a bit rangier, the flowers a little smaller. Very hardy: They've lived without complaint in our driveway bed, which gets sun-baked in summer and snow-piled in winter, with some snowmelt salt as a chaser.

By dave on Jul 4, 2015 11:29 AM, concerning plant: Galapagos Tomato (Solanum cheesmaniae)

Well, this produced upwards of a thousand little bland yellow tomatoes per plant. Extremely productive and similar to 'Yellow Pear' in nearly every way except the shape. Like 'Yellow Pear,' it produced fruits until we were so sick of them that we pulled the plants, fruit and all, and threw them to the chickens, where the fruit was quickly picked clean.

By plantrob on Jul 4, 2015 7:32 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Chicago Princess')

It's amazing to me how different the flowers on this page look - all with the same purple-pink and yellow center color scheme, but such variety in hue and subtle patterning! When I first grew this, I described the color as "metallic purple", and some days, that still seems accurate, but it all depends on the quality of light.
