By Marilyn on Apr 22, 2014 9:20 PM, concerning plant: Darwin Hybrid Tulip (Tulipa 'Orange Sun')

The flowers of 'Orange Sun' start out yellow with some orange and then age to solid orange. It provides a beautiful and mixed color variety of flowers while they're in the aging process. It has become one of my favorite tulips. The name of 'Orange Sun' is perfect because the flowers age from yellow (sun) to orange coloring.

By eclayne on Apr 22, 2014 4:35 PM, concerning plant: Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea PowWow® Wild Berry)

A no fuss echi with a long bloom period. Beautiful flowers are bee magnets and it's easy to divide. In well draining soil they can take lots of water, I have one with Japanese Iris, or no supplemental water.

By Bonehead on Apr 22, 2014 10:50 AM, concerning plant: Goat's Beard (Aruncus dioicus)

Native in the Pacific Northwest, found in damp forest edges, most commonly seen along road shoulders in the mountain passes. The root may be used as a poultice for sores, or as an infusion for colds and sore throats. Aruncus is from the Greek aryngos (goat's beard). I have had difficulty transplanting this, but I keep trying. It is a lovely statement plant, especially in a large swath.

By growitall on Apr 21, 2014 7:09 PM, concerning plant: American lily-of-the-valley (Convallaria majalis var. montana)

Convallaria montana is, debatably, a native North American lily-of-the-valley species. Its natural range (assuming it is not actually a naturalized introduced species) is a limited area in Georgia, Kentucky, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia, where it inhabits montane slopes and woods, in acidic and sandy soils.

The most noticeable feature that distinguishes it from the very commonly-grown European species, Convallaria majalis (which frequently escapes into the wild), is that the midribs on the flower tepals are green, unlike on Convallaria majalis.

Ref. Flora of North America (www.eFloras.org)

Unless your plants were collected from these wild populations as plants or seed, and unless they show the characteristics of this species as noted above, they are most likely Convallaria majalis.

By JB on Apr 21, 2014 12:55 PM, concerning plant: Sun Star (Ornithogalum dubium)

Here are some additional tips for this plant.

I am told by a grower of Sun Star that this plant also sells as Orange Star, Yellow Star, Peach Star and Ivory Star. It is suggested the plant mix should be kept moist. The spent flower spikes at the base should be removed. If fertilizing you should only use half the label rate every other month. It also does well in bright indirect sunlight indoors.

By SongofJoy on Apr 21, 2014 4:30 AM, concerning plant: Tennessee Ostrich Fern (Athyrium pycnocarpon)

Plant in well-drained soil in a hole large enough to accommodate the roots without bending or circling them. Make sure the crown of the plant is level with the soil surface and free of dirt in order to prevent rotting. May be planted in any well-drained soil but best in moist, rich loam that is acidic, medium wet with consistent moisture. The plant tolerates a wide range of soils, including poor rocky soils and dry soil once it is well established.

By Marilyn on Apr 20, 2014 11:49 PM, concerning plant: Parrot Tulip (Tulipa 'Bright Parrot')

The 'Bright Parrot' that I planted 6 inches deep has been blooming for days and it's a favorite here. The 'Bright Parrot' that was planted 10 inches deep is a little slower in blooming. Gorgeous flowers and they are, indeed, brightly colored. They're the first parrot tulips I've planted, and I'll be planting only this variety of parrot tulips from now on in the fall. I love it and so does my husband, Dean.

Will be posting pics when I can.

By Deebie on Apr 20, 2014 7:41 PM, concerning plant: Chinese Peony (Paeonia lactiflora 'Festiva Maxima')

This is one of the few early blooming varieties that grows well in the South. Its double flowers are full and beautiful. Be sure to use plant supports for these flowers as the stems will bend/break because of the weight of the blooms, especially when it's wet.

By Calif_Sue on Apr 20, 2014 6:24 PM, concerning plant: Mock Orange (Philadelphus 'Belle Etoile')

The blooms appear on previous year's growth, so prune right after flowering. It can also be cut to the ground after flowering if shrub becomes scraggly looking or otherwise in need of rejuvenation. I just pruned mine in half and the new growth is now fuller and lusher than last year.

By Paul2032 on Apr 19, 2014 4:12 PM, concerning plant: Hosta (Hosta 'Liberty')

If I were forced to choose 5 favorite Hostas, I know Liberty would be one of those. It is a beautiful Hosta. Very photogenic as you can see from the pictures in the database. It is attractive as a young plant and absolutely spectacular when mature. Moderate growth rate. It is one of the first to emerge in the spring in my garden. If you grow Hostas and don't have it, I would highly recommend it.

By Paul2032 on Apr 19, 2014 3:54 PM, concerning plant: Hosta (Hosta 'Invincible')

Invincible is not one of the flashiest plants, which are the ones I am often drawn to. It is, however, a very attractive plant. It forms a nice clump with attractive glossy green foliage. It is a good addition to a planting of the more flamboyant variegated Hostas. I have it growing in 2 different places and I am always pleased with it. It is nice also when it blooms.

By Paul2032 on Apr 19, 2014 3:43 PM, concerning plant: Iris (Iris 'Decorum')

Decorum is another of my favorite SDB's. To my eyes, it is an apricot-orange color with a contrasting blue beard. 2014 is the second year for it in my garden. It has several bloom stalks and plenty of increase to share this summer. This one has earned its place in the garden.

By Paul2032 on Apr 19, 2014 3:35 PM, concerning plant: Iris (Iris 'Raspberry Ice')

Raspberry Ice is one of my favorite Irises that I have planted in the last couple of years. I love Keith Keppel's intros, love plicatas, and love SDB's. This fits all the bills. Lovely flower, gorgeous color, great increase. The year after I planted it, there was enough increase to share. Worthy of its spot in a crowded garden.

By Paul2032 on Apr 19, 2014 3:18 PM, concerning plant: Iris (Iris 'Stripe Three')

It is interesting to note that the pod parent of Stripe Three is Chubby Cheeks, which was introduced in 1985 by Paul Black and has always been quite popular, Chubby Cheeks has been used in countless crosses and is the parent of 225 registered offspring. Quite a record.

By Paul2032 on Apr 19, 2014 7:48 AM, concerning plant: Iris (Iris 'Going My Way')

I have always considered Going My Way to be an iris that was cutting edge at the time of its introduction. Very nice form for the time. It maintained a place on the AIS popularity poll for a number of years.

By chickhill on Apr 18, 2014 7:50 PM, concerning plant: Aibika (Abelmoschus manihot)

I have this growing from seed every year. I have read many different articles about this plant, but I haven't found anything about how bad the "fine looking hairs" will stick into your skin. I use leather gloves when cutting the plants down in fall. Anyone else grow this? Then again, I hope I haven't added this comment to the wrong plant.

By chelle on Apr 18, 2014 6:51 AM, concerning plant: Climbing penstemon (Keckiella cordifolia)

Climbing penstemon (Keckiella cordifolia) seedlings are quite cold hardy and adaptable to wide temperature fluctuations. Seedlings transplanted outdoors under high cover have survived and show every sign of continuing to prosper; this batch having been started warm indoors, and then directly exposed to the following:

Day 1, 69°F / 32°F
Day 2, 33°F / 24°F
Day 3, 46°F / 23°F
Day 4, 66°F / 32°F

By Esc on Apr 17, 2014 2:26 PM, concerning plant: Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Cassie's Curls')

I have a brugmansia. Cassie's curls. Angel's trumpet. I live in San Antonio. My yard faces west-south-west. A big oak tree blocks late afternoon sun. I am looking for advice on where to plant this. In a container? Hanging basket? My gardens are full and really don't have room. The plant arrived in the mail after our perennials came back and we added new so we're pretty full. Would appreciate any suggestions. I'm inexperienced with this plant. Thanks.
