By tabbycat on Jul 17, 2018 8:51 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Carlotta')

My 'Carlotta' day lilies make proliferation plants. This July 2018 I cut four 6" plants off stems that still had flowers. I put them in water 3 days which makes them send out nice roots then on day 4 I put them in potting soil. I've read they are actually clones of the plant they form on.

By ILPARW on Jul 17, 2018 11:20 AM, concerning plant: Spreading Sedge (Carex laxiculmis)

This Spreading sedge is a handsome clumping evergreen perennial. Its native range is from southeast Canada to northern Florida to Oklahoma to Iowa & Wisconsin. It has thick 3 to 12 mm wide bluish-green blades that are either smooth and hairless or rough. The tiny yellowish flowers in late spring are not ornamental. This species is sold by some native plant nurseries as Izel Native Plants in Washington, DC. The cultivar of 'Bunny Blue' has bluer foliage and is more commonly planted and found at some conventional and native plant nurseries that carry a diverse stock of perennials.

By ILPARW on Jul 17, 2018 11:07 AM, concerning plant: Nodding sedge (Carex gynandra)

I've seen one good specimen in the trial gardens of the Mount Cuba Center in northern Delaware, and it makes a lovely clump, though it can be either tight or loose, with flower stems (culms) above the foliage with conspicuous, sort of showy, drooping, bottlebrush-like, greenish to brownish flower clusters with the male flower spikes to 2 inches long and the female flower spikes on the same plant to 4 inches long. (Sedges are monoecious but with both separate male and female flower clusters on the same plant.) Its native range is from southeast Canada & Maine down to northern Georgia up to northeast Minnesota, most of Wisconsin, and areas of Michigan in bogs, swamps, shores, floodplains, and such wet areas. The blades get to 21 inches long and are about 4 to 12 mm wide. The stems have a clear wrap of leaf sheaths around them. There is a very similar species called Fringed Sedge (Carex crinita) that botanists disagree about as being the same species or not. The only way to tell is to use a hand lense and look at tiny parts and characteristics.

By Frillylily on Jul 17, 2018 10:42 AM, concerning plant: Chastetree (Vitex agnus-castus First Editions® Delta Blues™)

This shrub has square stems on new growth. It is deciduous. It takes some time to make an appearance in my garden (springfield MO, zone 6) and it won't take off until the temps warm up. This is a bee magnet. Bees love it and it is always covered with them. I have had seedlings sprout in my yard. The flowers are a medium purple/bluish tone, but not actually blue to my eye.

By JuliaPGH on Jul 16, 2018 8:50 PM, concerning plant: Bog Rosemary (Andromeda polifolia 'Blue Ice')

Help! I planted a beautiful Andromeda polifolia Blue Ice Bog Rosemary this spring and have been loving its unusual blue hue - until... it started drying up. It started to look like it got a chemical burn just recently, and I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I fear it may be too late for it, because what started as just a few branches has quickly spread over the entire plant. From what I can read, it is fairly resistant to most pests and diseases, so it must be something else. It has been very hot and humid here (Western PA) recently, so did I not water it enough? Wondering if there is any way I can bring it back...

Thanks in advance!

This plant is thriving in the hot, humid climate of eastern Tennessee. It's just starting to bloom in mid-July, and greenery is full and lush at a time when other garden plants are getting tired and spindly.

Bracts vary in color. They start out pinkish and turn peach or orange depending on plant and health. Older bracts will be most orange.

By tabbycat on Jul 15, 2018 4:01 PM, concerning plant: White Veined Dutchman's Pipe (Aristolochia fimbriata)

It's July in south Louisiana and I have flowers opening on my 1-year-old vine I started from seeds I got in a big swap in Jan. 2017. The plants stayed small and didn't flower last summer. This spring I put the plant that made it through unseasonable 21* temps here in zone 9 in a hanging basket. It got spider mites, so I cut it back to the soil and sprayed the area. It sent out pretty new leaves in June and got 12" long. Was I ever surprised to find a flower this morning and 3 other buds! The leaves are very ornate and the flower is small and quite mysterious looking.

By Australis on Jul 15, 2018 2:53 AM, concerning plant: Orchid (Cymbidium Lowland Tiger 'Pendolino')

This clone is from the NHO cross of Orchid (Cymbidium lowianum 'Comte d' Hemptinne') (4N) X Orchid (Cymbidium Golden Tiger) (4N). The hybridiser noted it was about half the size of a typical Cym. lowianum and commented that he may cross it back to Golden Tiger again to reduce the plant size further.
