Scarlet Rose Mallow and One Dark NightScarlet Rose Mallow and One Dark Night
By Sharon, September 1, 2015

It started like this: She leaned over with her hand cupped around her mouth, and with her soft low voice against my ear, she whispered: "Wear yore darkest clothes, chile, an' meet me right here jus' 'fore dark.

Rose Of Sharon:  What's in a Name, AnywayRose Of Sharon: What's in a Name, Anyway
By Sharon, August 30, 2015

A rose is a rose unless it's a Rose of Sharon, and then it's a hibiscus. Some say it's the name of a crocus and others swear it's the name of a tulip and then there's some confusion with the lily of the valley. Poor plant, most likely it lives in a state of constant identity crisis, never knowing on which side of the garden it should grow.

An All Things Plants Favorite: GarlicAn All Things Plants Favorite: Garlic
By dave, August 27, 2015

What is the absolute easiest edible plant you can grow? I spent my entire morning contemplating that question, and nothing came to mind that beats garlic.

By grannysgarden, August 24, 2015

We often refer to an heirloom plant as a pass-along. These are very dear to us, but there is an even more important garden pass-along, which is the garden practices and garden knowledge we adhere to in our own gardens.

By jmorth on Aug 31, 2015 10:07 PM, concerning plant: Large-cupped Daffodil (Narcissus 'Red Aria')

Even though this lovely flower is registered as having orange petals and a red cup (2 O-R), its petals are really coppery orange and the cup is fiery red! No matter how you verbalize its colors, it's an eye-catcher! One of the latest blooming red cupped daffodils. Mid-Late Spring, 18"-24"
Compliments of Brent and Becky's Bulbs.

Dinnerplate - appropriately named as its huge flat cup, which folds back across its perianth segments, seems as large as a dinner plate! A bright and happy flower; early-mid spring; 12"-16".
