|By ARoseblush on Jul 30, 2014 9:10 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruby Lipstick')
'Ruby Lipstick' (a John Benz daylily), was added to my garden in May, 2014. I won it from Abundant Daylilies, a favorite hybridizer of mine earlier in the year. When it arrived it was a very small 3 fans. I remember thinking at that time, 'no way this plant will bloom this year'. In fact, I was worried that the plant might not make it through our very cold Winter. I planted it very carefully and fed it with alfalfa meal and a fish nutrient tea. In six weeks, this plant has tripled in size, and sent up 2 scapes. I am just thrilled with this increase, and even more so, as I will get to see it bloom in a few weeks.

On 'Emerald Dream', I have posted a picture of a great example of what 'rebloom scapes' should look like. In this pix, you see 4 new scapes in the middle of the foliage. Emerald Dream was the first plant to bloom in my Vermont (Zone 4b) garden. It's first bloom was the middle of June, 2014. Six weeks later, it is still blooming, while sending up rebloom scapes as well. Emerald Dream is a 'dream' plant in my garden.

A small, green, romaine-type lettuce.

A nice slicer tomato with good old fashioned flavor and meaty texture. Not a bad producer once it gets going, this one is still giving nice sized fruits during our hot summer months.

A great little melon that I grew in the 70's and 80's in Virginia. Does not do well here in Georgia. I like green fleshed melons so I moved up to the hybrid Galia types. Basically the same flavor but more adaptable to my present conditions.
