Very mediocre performer prone to powdery mildew. Not suited for this climate.

A great plant, though I have to trim it back a few times each year, otherwise it would take over my flower bed. I've seen quite a few pollinators show interest in the blooms. It's also pretty easy to start from cuttings.

An incredibly tough plant. I hardly water this plant and it still thrives. My only complaint is during wet winters it sometimes drops a lot of its leaves since I have it in clay soil that hasn't been amended, but I couldn't be without this plant. When it's in full bloom it attracts tons of pollinators.

I started this plant from seed a few years ago and it's reliable and tough. It's in clay soil that hasn't been amended in a couple of years, yet it always blooms and thrives. I've been had it bloom in December. It's very drought tolerant and the butterflies and bees love the blooms, plus the blue blooms really stand out. This year it grew over 3 ft. tall which is the largest it's ever grown but we also had a fairly mild winter too.

I've had this plant for a few seasons now and I really don't have much good to say about it. They leaf color is wonderful...that much I'll give it. But it is simply not a good grower for me. While other Heuchera planted nearby do very well, this one struggles every year and has progressively gotten smaller each season. This is likely it's last year for me before it goes to the compost bin unless it does something dramatically different...but so far, it looks like more of the same. Slow growth and smaller than it's ever been.

Really good producer of excellent flavored peas. Long slender pods with 10 peas to the pod. Plants are stiff which helps them maintain an upright position. An afila type that I can heartily recommend.

One of the first cannabis varieties designed for tough outdoor conditions. In this case it was bred specifically for Holland's often cool and wet summers.

An unusual cabbage collard. very loose head compared to the green cabbage collard. Yellow green rather than the standard dark green. Much more tender and better flavor. An outstanding collard.

By farmerdill on Apr 25, 2017 5:05 PM, concerning plant: Collards (Brassica oleracea 'Cabbage Collards')

As the name implies, this is a heading collard. The heads are loose, but have the appearance of a cabbage head. They head best when temps are in high 20's low thirties. Easy to grow in zone 8 or higher. Transplant in September-October. In my opinion much superior flavor to the Georgia types.

There are 2 forms of this Dischidia.
1 from Laos, which has very fine hairs on surface of the leaf,and 1 from the Philippines, which is smooth. Both produce tiny white Urn shaped blooms.

I am wondering if we have two different semps entered for 'Pluto'?

By ScotTi on Apr 22, 2017 8:33 AM, concerning plant: Croton (Codiaeum variegatum 'Sloppy Painter')

This plant is known only as 'Eleanor Roosevelt' by Croton collectors and the 'Sloppy Painter' name is frowned on. The 'Sloppy Painter' name was stuck on this plant by nursery tradesmen at a later time. This Croton is a hybrid by Henry Coppinger . 'Eleanor Roosevelt', 'Franklin Roosevelt', 'Johanna Coppinger', 'Golden Glow' and 'Miami Beauty' all came from the same seed cluster.

By lauribob on Apr 20, 2017 4:30 PM, concerning plant: Aster (Symphyotrichum lateriflorum 'Lady in Black')

This plant has striking dark purplish foliage, which provides interest from spring until the masses of flowers appear in late summer. It does best in full sun but will tolerate a bit of shade. Native to North America.

By lauribob on Apr 20, 2017 4:17 PM, concerning plant: Aster (Symphyotrichum lateriflorum 'Prince')

This is very similar to the cultivar 'Lady in Black' but it is shorter and does not spread as readily. Can be grown in partial or dappled shade, but the foliage will have the best color in full sun.
