Sleeping Among the PoppiesSleeping Among the Poppies
By bennysplace, May 25, 2015

By farmerdill on May 25, 2015 8:09 AM, concerning plant: Snap Bean (String (Phaseolus vulgaris 'Landreth Stringless')

A 19th century snap bean that is still around. Does reasonably well here altho yields are low compared to modern varieties. Controls were Amethyst and Igloo. Landreths was about 5 days earlier but less than half the yield per plant. Flavor is good.

By critterologist on May 24, 2015 4:30 PM, concerning plant: Peony (Paeonia lactiflora 'Sarah Bernhardt')

I cut a bloom from 'Sarah B' to bring into the house this afternoon. The scent is intoxicating, sweet but not musky, a lovely floral perfume. My little row of peonies is getting too much shade this year (something I can correct with a little pruning of the willows on either side of the bed), but 'Sarah B' bloomed anyway! My neighbor has a peony growing very happily by her south-facing foundation... pretty sure it's also 'Sarah B', and it's huge this year, at least 4 feet across and covered with blooms!

Fancy Face has perfect blooms every time, and it is also a good increaser.
This is one of my favorite daylilies.
Overall, a great daylily.

By LizinElizabeth on May 23, 2015 5:29 PM, concerning plant: Peony (Paeonia 'Nosegay')

This is a very tough little peony! It started opening just before we had a very heavy snow storm this Mother's Day, followed by several nights of below-freezing temps. Most of the other varieties had some damage, but not Nosegay. I highly recommend this variety if you live in an area with late spring freezes.
