Does anyone know where I can get Hosta Viva Las Vegas? I want to start an Elvis hosta garden and can't find anyone selling it. Thanks.

Carousel Princess has struggled in a planter in my zone 6 garden. Despite that, it was the first daylily I ever had that rebloomed! It bloomed in July of last year and also in September.

Big Kiss did not do well in my zone 6 garden last year due to drought. Although it bloomed, it had far fewer blooms than the previous year. It definitely performs much better when regularly watered and fertilized. In 2016, most of my midseason or later bloomers performed poorly due to our drought.

I know Annie Welch is registered as pink but in my garden it is definitely more peach than pink. It is planted in a fairly shady area but I don't think that should have that much of an impact. Despite being in mostly shade it blooms very well for me.

I quite like Andes Legend but unfortunately it does not like my zone 6 garden. It is barely hanging on after several years. As an evergreen it has difficulty with my late winter-early Spring weather. It is pod and pollen fertile so I'm hoping to get some offspring that look similar but are better suited for my climate.

I've had Alice's Ghost for a few years now. It has not done well in my zone 6 garden, most likely because it is a semi-evergreen. It has a low bud count for me (under 10) and I have yet to be able to set a pod on it. It is, however, pollen fertile.

Have had these in my garden for 4 years. Originally purchased from Santa Rosa Gardens, have divided and transplanted in the fall with complete success. Well over 32 inches, leggy and prone to breaking in our July windstorms. Also a particular favorite of the Japanese Beetles who eat the petals (sigh). I removed these last fall to make way for Daylilies, but I will miss them. Glorious, glowing blooms, tough and vigorous plant. Also a unique fragrance, exotic and spicy. If you want to try the hybrids, this is one that won't disappoint.

Acted as a bud builder in my garden in 2015. It almost died in 2016 from a cold, wet Spring and didn't recover until autumn. Needless to say it didn't bloom last year.

By bxncbx on Mar 22, 2017 12:42 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Buffy')

I've had Buffy for many years now and I can say that in all that time the scapes have been much taller than the 12" it is registered as having. The scapes are often close to 30 inches and hold the flowers well over the foliage. Therefore this is not a good daylily for the front of the border.

By bron on Mar 22, 2017 8:27 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Fugue')

NGA and AHS both show the daylily FUGUE as having pod parent Tet Fugue. Also the NGA database for offspring of FUGUE shows FUGUE as one. Seems there has been an error in the registration record???

By nothingfail on Mar 21, 2017 6:13 AM, concerning plant: Pink Trumpet Vine (Podranea ricasoliana)

Did Podranea ricasoliana regrow after it was killed to the ground and did it manage to flower same season? Are flowers scented and is scent carried by air? Thank you!

I have Lewisia nevadensis as a winter sow.
It also gives white flowers.
I hope they are as nice as yours are!

I did not know that the roots are edible !

By Henhouse on Mar 19, 2017 11:02 PM, concerning plant: Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens 'Loma Prieta Spike')

There is a house with a planting of 5 or 6 of these trees a few miles from me near Santa Cruz. One day I was driving by, and the homeowner was out in his garden and I stopped to ask about the trees. He introduced himself as a retired nurseryman named Allan Korth, and said that he'd originally seen the tree growing in a garden in San Jose. He asked that homeowner where he got the tree, and was told that it was found near the epicenter of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Mr. Korth grew some cuttings from that tree which were later shared with Saratoga Horticultural Foundation, who in turn distributed plants to other wholesale nurseries. He said that he named it for the spike in the Richter scale. It's often found as just 'Loma Prieta'.

I was told that only upright tip growth cuttings produce an upright weeping tree. Cuttings from the weeping branches basically produce a ground cover.

By eclayne on Mar 19, 2017 6:13 PM, concerning plant: Caladium (Caladium praetermissum 'Hilo Beauty')

This plant is often mislabeled as an Alocasia.
Per Wilbert Hettersheid, from the description of C. praetermissum (Hilo Beauty) on eMonocot Team Araceae CATE Araceae http://araceae.e-monocot.org/t...

Taxonomic Notes:
Note 1: It is not clear why this plant is identified in cultivation as an Alocasia because all species of that genus possess a sterile appendix which is easily observable. Furthermore the leaves of the genus Alocasia are usually coriaceous but membranous in Caladium.

Note 3: When all plants in cultivation are derived vegetatively from one clone, the latter may then be regarded as a cultivar, which should carry the name C. praetermissum 'Hilo Beauty' or C. 'Hilo Beauty' (the cultivar epithet established by Graf, 1982 as part of the name Aloeasia 'Hilo Beauty').
