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!

By midnight21, June 27, 2015

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 plantrob on Jul 1, 2015 8:32 PM, concerning plant: Chinese Green Dragon (Pinellia pedatisecta)

Quite the spreader - it seems like every seed it sets grows into a plant, and some pop up in unusual places, including spots in full sun, where they do fine despite their reputation as a shade plant. They quickly grow a small bulb, which grows into a large flattened bulb over the course of a few years. While I like them, they've gotten out of hand in a few garden areas, so I treat them with caution these days.

This was very disappointing in this year's trials. It has very little resistance to TSWV. Not only are fruits affected, but the vines are going down as the fruit begins to ripen. I had high hopes for it as Mountain Merit is a very good TSWV tomato. Mountain Majesty is the poorest performer claiming TSWV resistance that I have tried to date.

A large (8-12 ounce) TSWV-resistant, round, red tomato. It is a vigorous determinate. While the fruits show some of the yellow spots and flecks of TSWV, they are maintaining size and quality. Plants seem unaffected. Best performer in this year's trials. It has an excellent disease package.
