Alfred Sisley rose :
Hello all!!! I am very new to growing and caring for roses so please forgive my ignorance. I'd like to ask a question about my Alfred Sisley rose in hopes of receiving some wisdom and guidance from experienced gardeners like y'all. I have managed to keep this rose alive and blooming until recently. It remains healthy, but not blooming. It has developed what looks like pods where the blooms were. My question is what are these things and what do I do with them? Do I clip them off so that new blooms can develop? Any advice that I can get regarding this rose from y'all is GREATLY APPRECIATED!
Thank you in advance. šŸŒ¹

Spiny columnar cactus with large white flowers. Extremely easy and relatively common in cultivation. A well behaved landscape plant, somewhat unstable once it gets to be a few feet tall, but sideways or broken stems will branch and generate more vertical growth. Flowers open around sunset and last a few hours into the next day; separate plants will often coordinate their blooming and flower on the same night.

A single stem of a couple feet in length can be segmented and the pieces used to start several new plants (just make sure you keep them right side up). Or a smaller cutting can be turned into several stems in relatively short order by serial decapitation. This plant seems to have better stability (at least in a relative sense) when multiple stems are planted close together. It will stretch pretty quickly and lose a lot of stability if it's not growing in the sun.

10-15 ribs, 1 central spine, 8-10 radial spines. From Argentina.

Small succulent with fat, glaucous (bluish or pinkish white) leaves in relatively loose rosettes to 3-4 inches wide. Reddish flowers are tubular and obscured by sepals. Stems grow up to 12 inches or longer, starting out upright and sprawling sideways over time. They may have a few branches at the base.

Relatively common in cultivation. Easily propagated from leaves and cuttings. Best color with strong light.

Found in Hidalgo, Mexico at altitudes of 4-6,000 feet. Similar to P. oviferum from San Luis PotosĆ­, which tends to have thicker, more convex leaves.

When I first ever saw this plant in Zion National Park in the US state of Utah, I was immediately mesmerized by its striking beauty. The leaves are small, round, and curled inwards which enhances this shrub's spectacular and almost unnatural metallic shine. One thing that has baffled me however is this species' notable absence from nurseries and garden centers. In my opinion, it amounts to a crime that it is so difficult to get your hands on this gorgeous shrub!

By Gardener2493 on Jul 23, 2021 11:23 AM, concerning plant: China Doll (Radermachera sinica)

Radermachera Sinica is a species of tree in the Bignoniaceae family, which also includes Tecoma, Dolichandra, Jacaranda, Bignonia, and Catalpa, among many others. It's a feathery-looking native of China that is often grown as a houseplant or a patio tree. When grown indoors it remains small but outdoors it can grow up to 90 feet in the best conditions. Indoors it doesn't flower, but outside it can flower in zones 9b-12. The flowers are white and trumpet-shaped, blooming for only a few hours, giving way to long, brown seed pods with many tiny, flat, winged seeds. It's very easy to grow from seed and cuttings. Although it is not considered toxic, it is not to be eaten.

Tree growing to 20-50 ft. Wild forms have thorns but some cultivated forms do not. The tree blossoms in spring with long clusters of mimosoid, sweet-smelling flowers that may range from white to light yellow in color. The pods are white with a dry and sweet pulp that can be used as a flour substitute.

This selection is known to be variable depending on growing conditions. The width of the red marks down the centre of the tepals can extend almost to the very edge.
