My Purple Monster climbs up a 6ft post and engulfs a birdhouse and still heads to the sky it now 12 ft high

We have been planting Vinca Cora Mix flowers in our garden in north Atlanta for over 10 years now. We have not found a single plant with this much "bang for your buck" in this area. These plants love the heat, and last until mid-Autumn. We even have volunteers appear in some sections of our garden.

By Baja_Costero on Jun 29, 2022 1:47 PM, concerning plant: Euphorbia (Euphorbia virosa)

Large, spiny, much-branched succulent shrub from Namibia, extending just into South Africa. Upright, cactiform habit to about 10 feet high and wide, branching at the base and occasionally above. Green branches have 3-8 wavy ribs and are constricted into segments corresponding to individual years' growth. They bear a continuous horny margin and tubercles with paired stipular spines that are bright red when new, grayish later. Yellow cyathia appear near the tips; 3-chambered capsule is spherical, not angled.

Prefers strong light and excellent drainage in cultivation. Not a small plant (allow space in the landscape). New stem growth tends to be extremely seasonal even in our mild climate, occurring during the summer.

This plant may be confused with E. avasmontana, a slightly smaller plant which is not as sharply constricted into segments and not as concave between ribs. Plants labeled virosa in the trade may actually be avasmontana. The sap is a potent irritant.

A little difficult and slow going to grow from seed, but very hardy once established!

Purchased this from Tranquil Lake Nursery three years ago. This is third season in my garden. Finally coming into its own. I was hesitant to get this as I wasn't sure of the color from their photo. Was looking for a coral pink, tall double. Saw first bloom of the season this morning and the color made me think of H. 'South Seas'. If it makes me think of THAT daylily, I just might get a few more!

Hi growing a red variety of gooseberry don't have the name in front of me . This is year 5 I have had it growing beautifully and lots of berries. However as they begin to ripen they develop a round soft depression , a spot on the berry similar to when an apple is bruised. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you. Gary

By Johannian on Jun 28, 2022 6:29 PM, concerning plant: Radish (Raphanus sativus 'French Breakfast')

I've only grown this once, but it was an extremely fast grower for me, even faster than Radish (Raphanus sativus 'Champion') and Radish (Raphanus sativus 'Early Scarlet Globe'). Very tasty as well, and bug resistant. It's been 22-25 days since planting, and I've gotten these results. The packet said they would be ready within 21 days, but the seed packets have never been accurate for my plants, partly due to the dry climate here.

By farmerdill on Jun 28, 2022 5:30 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'RuBee Dawn')

Rubee Dawn is advertised as a large salad type round red with an exceptional disease package. Unfortunately, that disease package does not include Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus and the plants are quickly dying. I am getting a handful of small tomatoes on dying plants. It has a quite early DTM and did ripen with the cherry/grape types. Good flavor, just wish it was resistant to TSWV

By pod on Jun 28, 2022 4:31 AM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Cerise Orange')

These are a tasty cherry tomato, very sweet and mellow.

I noticed two of the first five tomatoes harvested had split skin. The evening before there was an immeasurable rain. I suspect the cool rain caused these to split. The plants have been consistently watered and there was not enough rain to have caused this damage to have happened by water intake.

The color is a bit confusing. The tomato name is Cerise Orange, the flesh description is gold but the color of these fruit is a pale yellow.

By Baja_Costero on Jun 27, 2022 11:10 PM, concerning plant: Aloe 'Rooikappie'

Clumping aloe hybrid with leaves that turn a striking reddish orange color when stressed. Leaves are green under less stressful conditions, with elongated whitish spots on both upper and lower surfaces. Reddish orange flowers with yellowish mouths and interiors appear in capitate racemes on and off, year round. This is a great plant for color in the dry garden, especially given its tendency to flower during the summer, when other aloes do not.

This Cynthia Giddy hybrid from South Africa has as one of its parents Aloe zubb, an East African plant formerly known as Aloe sinkatana. Rooikappie is Afrikaans for little red riding hood.
