The Magic in YarrowThe Magic in Yarrow
By Sharon, July 22, 2014

There was magic, she said, in the plants we gathered from the mountain. Magic plants had three reasons for living: They gave us food, they gave us medicine, and they gave us beauty. She said yarrow was truly magic because it was also a plant that could live with very little water. To me, the very best part about yarrow was that it was so old it had a story to tell. That made it even more magical. I loved Aunt Bett's stories.

Some of My Favorite Xeriscape Plants Are Real StinkersSome of My Favorite Xeriscape Plants Are Real Stinkers
By SongofJoy, July 21, 2014

I love stapeliads, especially Stapelia gigantea. Some people say the blooms emit a terrible odor. Others say they can't smell them at all.

Landscape or XeriscapeLandscape or Xeriscape
By Sharon, July 20, 2014

A few years ago if you had asked me what I thought when I heard the word "Xeriscape," I would have immediately said "Cactus and rocks." How little I knew and how quickly my mind was forever changed.

Lily BeetlesLily Beetles
By pixie62560, July 18, 2014

I have tried everything organically (or so I thought) to get rid of the dreaded Red Lily Beetle. I have used chemicals in the past that have worked fine but left me with a guilty conscience. What am I harming?

In Search of Angels has been quite a pleasant surprise for me. It has grown well and it's blooms are a much more vibrant, exciting shade of rose than I imagined it to be. Photos I have seen do not do it justice. I have used it's pollen this year, and some early pods are developing. I am very happy with this plant. Zone 5.

By Dayjillymo on Jul 23, 2014 2:55 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Gripping Power')

Gripping Power came as a double fan plant and very nearly died it's first year. I thought it was dead, but it revived and grew in the spring. It was very short - perhaps 14 inches tall that first bloom season and I was not happy with it, but this year is a completely different story. It grew well, increased well and grew as it should. Blooms were big and beautiful and the plants were much taller with dark green leaves. Overall, this plant recovered from a rotten first year and has become a very nice plant for me. Zone 5.

Bama Girl Tee grows well for me and has increased nicely. It has good pollen and I've set several pods on this plant. It is in full sun and only slighly modified clay soil. It displays metallic glitter in it's edges and passes that trait along to it's seedlings. I've enjoyed growing this one - it has done quite well for me in my Zone 5 garden.

Glitter Gal grows well for me. It is listed as a late season bloomer and I find that to be true in my garden. It has increased quite well and blooms reliably after a somewhat slow start. It's first year it struggled, but has now improved quite nicely and is doing very well. I have set several pods on this one, and it's pollen is also fertile.
