Marvelous Martagons: Lilies for the LandscapeMarvelous Martagons: Lilies for the Landscape
By magnolialover, July 6, 2015

In recent years, the use of the martagon lily in the landscape has made a bit of a comeback. For years, martagons had been given a bad reputation of being difficult to grow and too expensive. As a result, they became more difficult to obtain. As we celebrate lily week, we will take a look at these beautiful, graceful lilies that are perfect for the woodland setting. We celebrate their comeback and availability in commerce and we will share tips for planting them and ensuring their success.

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 chelle on Jul 7, 2015 1:05 PM, concerning plant: Devil's Claw (Proboscidea parviflora var. hohokamiana)

*Cautionary Comment*

This plant can self-sow here in the Midwest, zone 5b. Overwintered seed in last year's growing container sprouted in June. This was a controlled experiment designed to learn more about safety issues regarding this plant. I'm sharing the results here so that other growers may realize the importance of using sound judgement in growing practices, including containment and thorough seed collection.

By Skiekitty on Jul 7, 2015 11:25 AM, concerning plant: Crenshaw Melon (Cucumis melo var. inodorus)

Bought a "Santa Claus" melon. White-fleshed and very soft for such a hard-rinded fruit. Sweet, very reminiscent of a honeydew (to which it's related). The skin is VERY thin and VERY tough. It's football-shaped (oblong) and kind of pointy at the ends. The seeds were easily removed with a spoon. Very juicy flesh. Where the seeds were attached, the flesh is orange-ish in color.
