So what happened to "Caramel Cocktail" and it's pollinator "Sugar Daddy"? It won awards, and then disappeared. I've searched to be able to purchase these, and they are nowhere to be found.... ?

By lovesblooms on Mar 5, 2015 8:06 AM, concerning plant: Passionflower (Passiflora sanguinolenta)

I truly enjoyed this plant, which I received as rooted and unrooted cuttings from a plant trade last year. I grew two outdoors, and each plant branched nicely and filled a 10" hanging basket that got blazing afternoon sun from around 3:00 to sunset all summer. I watered when it wilted, which wasn't every five minutes. Surprisingly. it liked to use its tendrils to climb up, but I just detached them to let it hang.

The foliage was lush and beautifully shaped, like small green butterflies. The exotic-looking pink flowers didn't smother the plant by any means, but the ones that showed were delightful.

I let the plants dry out when I brought them in for the winter and I'm afraid I've lost them, but I recently decided to soak them and see if anything happens. I'd taken cuttings when I brought them in, but allowed those to dry out, too (sigh).

By seedtrader on Mar 5, 2015 7:16 AM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Myth (Undocumented / Suspect)')

I got seeds to Myth, from a US tomato collector, who got them from a German, in a seed trade.

Unless the German "fabricated" it, I don't think it's "fabricated".


Myth, is a dwarf, or micro Dwarf, with rugose foliage, that bears pink tomatoes, slightly flattened, small, globes, smooth skin, some with very slight ridges, and yellow shoulders, mostly one side of the top. DTM 70 days.

I will be trying to grow it out this year.

Go here, to see it's progress...

link coming soon.

BRIGHT pink flowers. Blooms heavily, but the flowers tend to sit down in the foliage a bit so I haven't been able to get a very good picture of it, yet.

A unique iris with the black texture veins. A bit of a shy bloomer so far in my garden.

My favorite yellow SDB. Love the variation in color across the petals and the blue beards. Strong grower that always blooms heavily for me.

Cherry little iris. Nicely ruffled for an SDB.

By KentPfeiffer on Mar 2, 2015 7:30 PM, concerning plant: Intermediate Bearded Iris (Iris 'What About Me')

Lovely iris. When it was introduced the hybridizer, Thomas Johnson, said it "doesn’t fit well in any of the classes". However, in my garden, it's a pretty typical size for an Intermediate. About 24 inches tall and the flowers are the correct size as well.
