Mountain Rouge is a relatively early pink slicer that averages about 0.75 Lb. An indeterminate that is supposed to be 4-6 feet tall. This has been an extremely difficult year for growers. Some years I can work around TSWV but it is rampant this year. Mountain Rouge barely made it two feet tall before succumbing. Should be a great tomato under more normal circumstances. This year only varieties with high resistance to TSWV are producing nice tomatoes.

Hello Screamer is a star performer in my zone 7b North Georgia Mountains garden. It is a prolific bloomer with many buds per scape, and it quickly spreads to form significant clumps. The durable blooms stand tall on strong scapes. The blossoms do not fade in the harsh Georgia sun. This variety starts blooming in early midseason and continues through late midseason.

Although most perennial phlox don't last more than a season or two in my zone 7b North Georgia Mountains garden, I am pleased to have found this reblooming phlox. I planted it in spring 2022. It bloomed in early May, then I cut it back after the first flush finished, and it rebloomed in mid June.

First the past 8 years, Juliet tomato has been the star performer in my zone 7b North Georgia Mountains garden. It starts producing early, continues during the hottest days of August, and doesn't stop until October frosts. The fruit has an excellent flavor, not too sweet. I use these tomatoes for canning salsa, and also fresh for salads.

I actually have a question regarding re blooming of the Hemerocallis hybrid 'Whimsical'. I know with other day lilies you can cut the stem down to the ground once bloomed to encourage more blooms. Is that the case with this type of day lily? Thank You!

My Purple Monster climbs up a 6ft post and engulfs a birdhouse and still heads to the sky. It's 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.

Extremely drought tolerant. Prefers strong light and excellent drainage in cultivation. Not a small plant, given time (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!

By LivinEZ on Jun 29, 2022 8:48 AM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Double Flaring Pink')

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!
