By Legalily on Sep 30, 2016 12:16 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Always Afternoon')

This is one of my first daylilies to bloom. It has been split and moved more than once and remains hardy and thrives quite well in zone 5. It has lush beautiful blooms and has extended blooms, but it depends on the weather as to whether or not it has reblooms. Last year it had several reblooms and this year none.

By GrowInFlorida on Sep 30, 2016 9:08 AM, concerning plant: Red-Leaf Hibiscus (Hibiscus acetosella)

if you have an iguana problem, do not plant this hibiscus in the iguana-prone areas. They love this plant and will eat it to the bone (same as moringa). This is a very tasty plant for them. You can try to wrap the stalk in foil - it might scare them, iguanas don't like shiny reflective surfaces - but having foil hanging out in your yard can look unsightly. Mine was grown hydroponically and was pretty happy about it, so a water feature is also a good idea for this hibiscus. It's now grown in a group of alocasias and colocasias in soil with wet feet and is enjoying it immensely. Wilts if there is too much sun, so better put it in partial shade away from iguanas.

By farmerdill on Sep 27, 2016 6:05 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Jetsetter')

A 1998 introduction from Petoseed (Seminis). An early round red in the 6-8 oz class. Compact determinate that sets a large crown set, very productive and good flavor for an early (72 day) variety. Good disease package. Hybrid. Good for a concentrated early crop as it peters out about the time maincrop varieties come on line.

By csandt on Sep 27, 2016 8:56 AM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Savannah')

I planted three own-root 'Savannah' bushes from Chamblee's Rose Nursery in spring, 2016. I enjoyed beautiful foliage and wonderfully fragrant blooms intermittently from June 7 through fall without the use of any pesticides. The blooms did not suffer brown edges as did 'Beverly' and 'Wedding Bells'.

Insider Trading is one of my very favorite reds. It holds its color on the hottest days and seems to bloom for a long time. It is well-branched and well-budded.
