According to the RHS Lily Register, this lily may not appear in the double form if planted late. No explanation as to what "late" means. I assume if this happens then the following season it should appear double.

Also, this lily may have been sold with the misspelling 'Annamarie's Dream'

Would it be possible to obtain some pollen of this species in the next season?

This rose is my last remaining Austin rose after three moves, the worst winter in recent memory as a newly transplanted rose, and the Bambi brigade.

I hope she thrives in my new cottage garden -- in my mind's eye it is a cottage garden; in reality, it is a plant ghetto plunked in a mess of muddy clay.

She is beautiful when she is happy and tougher than she looks!

Regarding the info on the Snake plant, you say it prefers to be under-potted. Is that the same as root bound?

I'd recommend using supports. My peonies definitely benefited from them.

Here's the post I wrote about it:

This is an unusual entry and the full details of its naming can be found in the newsletter here:

https://kuringaiorchidsociety.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/mo...

Should that link ever be removed, a brief summary is as follows: both parents of Caudebec (Sophia Martin X Penny Kuroda) were registered and had the same parents (somehow this error got through). When it was discovered (probably upon trying to register Caudebec), they were reclassified as Penny Kuroda (the earlier entry) and also given group names reflecting the original registration. Technically this cross is also Penny Kuroda, but for clarity the RHS calls it the Penny Kuroda (Caudebec Group):

This hybrid was never sold. It was sent to Hyde in England along with many more of my hybrids. They chose not to propagate any of my lilies. Now all of my lilies are extinct.

By farmerdill on Jan 15, 2017 2:20 PM, concerning plant: Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus 'Halbert Honey')

An old melon from yesteryear. I have not grown this melon since 1954. Just obtained seeds from Sandhill and will revisit old paths this summer. I do not remember anything special about it except that it did not bottlenose as much as Kleckly's Sweet or Tom Watson. In that time and place we mostly grew more round melons, Dixie Queen and Stone Mountain, because of the bottle nose problem. Here I can grow long melons so looking forward to new data.

This was the only one of my lilies I ever named at first sight. I saw it out in the field the day it first opened, hundreds of feet away, and thought to myself, "I have to get down there and look at that. It is just stunning." And it was and is.

This treatment provides an explanation of why A. treubii is an unplaced name as well as describing why it should be considered a cultivar of A. commutatum.
