|By Weedwhacker on Jul 25, 2014 1:52 PM, concerning plant: Hot Pepper (Capsicum annuum 'Garden Salsa')
This is a hybrid, medium-hot pepper, about 8 inches long, that starts out green and turns red. Very productive in my northern garden, and one of the varieties I grow every year. Excellent for adding just a bit of heat to any dish -- I love to dice up both red and green peppers and add to sweet corn, for my own "Mexicorn." Also good raw in a salad. About 73 days to maturity.

I haven't noticed many self-sown seedlings from last year's plants, but there is one growing in the fork of a tree stump at just about eye level. If it lives to bloom I'll post a picture. I guess this might be a good beginning indication that this plant needs very little sustained moisture and very little in the way of added nutrients.

Vigor and Flower: Double Red Royal has performed well in the semi-shaded area of our 9b garden. The double bloom is fully formed from the first flower open, and two blooms will often open on different areas of one scape at the same time. The buds are almost as beautiful as the flowers in terms of garden interest and display. The spent flowers retain a lot of color and darken and curl nicely. Though not noted in the cultivar's registration, the petals have a thin white edge, the edge is somewhat serrated, and often has extra petal material often referred to as "angel wings." It was ranked as resistant to rust in 2001 by University of Arkansas testing, which means that less than 50% of the plant showed disease when exposed to rust.

|By chalyse on Jul 24, 2014 12:03 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Highland Lord')
Vigor and Flower: Highland Lord started out as a healthy plant years ago in our gardens, but gradually lost vigor and dwindled down, along with other long, narrower-leaf daylilies that consistently under-perform in summer temps above 90-100 in our zone 9b. It did not increase over three years. Just not enough vigor in the leaves to support more gain than loss, and not an appropriate cultivar for use in a drought tolerant hybridization program. A real shame as it looks in photos like it would have a pleasing flower. Developmentally delayed bloomer at best, progenitor of downward spiraling at worst, it will be replaced with a wider leaf cultivar.

This daylily is an early morning opener even on colder days. Its colors are very bright and attention getting when it first opens, but by midday it has faded to a pale version of its earlier self. Still very attractive even then, however.
