By Joy on Dec 3, 2011 4:52 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Asiatic Pheasant')

Exotic, russet- yellow spider-like form with rolled petals and green-yellow throat. Petal edges lighten as day progresses.\ Nice low-growing attention grabber.

By Joy on Dec 3, 2011 4:49 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Amnor')

Very pretty yellow daylily with a very green throat. Dark green foliage complements the pretty yellow bloom. Really builds the buds and has a long bloom season. Amnor opens well after a cool morning, making it a good cultivar for the PNW or other cooler regions.

Small growing plant. Plant in part shade to retain color. In continuous bloom from mid June through early August with many blossoms open at once. No spotting or discoloring detected in rainy weather. Very good parent for vigor, heavy-blooming habits and color. Very fertile pod parent.

Can be slow to establish. I was given a small fan and it took 3 years before I saw the first bloom. Reports I have read about AABACHEE say that it can develop excellent branching under certain growing conditions.

By porkpal on Dec 3, 2011 4:18 PM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Mutabilis')

Mutabilis is one of my most reliably healthy roses; she blooms repeatedly all year and keeps disease-free foliage when others are bare. I don't know why descriptions always call her a yellow rose. The blooms on mine open a pale apricot and quickly darken to almost maroon.

It is an upright shrub or small tree with flat dark green needle-like leaves and is used in foundation plantings, as single specimens and as informal hedges.This plant is a fast grower if fertilized in the first few years and can attain heights to 40' if not kept pruned to smaller sizes. It does well in full sun to shade and is salt and heat tolerant. The stems of Yew Pine are popular and attractive additions to flower arrangements.

By Joy on Dec 3, 2011 3:46 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Trahlyta')

Greyed violet, purple layered eyezone, frag. A very unusual flower with numerous gradients of color in the eyezone. An unusual Spider form which is much sought after and a valued breeding plant. Bright greenish colored throat. The foliage habit is variable, sometimes disappearing completely in winter and other times not, and the flower color is a little changeable too but always beautiful.

Golden orange with a distinct burnished eyezone gives this large double a rich copper look. Heavily frilled center doubling. One of the showiest of the doubles.

By valleylynn on Dec 3, 2011 3:40 PM, concerning plant: Blue Holly (Ilex China GirlĀ®)

A dioecious shrub (separate male and female plants).

CHINA GIRL is a female plant and CHINA BOY (D480) is a companion male plant. You need both to produce a good crop of berries.
A planting needs at least one CHINA BOY within 400' as a pollinator for up to 9-10 CHINA GIRL plants.

Upright, rounded, dense, evergreen shrub which matures over many years to 7-10' tall by 5-8' wide. Often seen growing much shorter, however.

Has thorns.

No serious disease or insect problems.

Tolerates air pollution.

By jmorth on Dec 3, 2011 3:23 PM, concerning plant: Shiso (Perilla frutescens)

Makes contrasting colors really stand out. Re-seeder, self-seeder w/ potential to become invasive. Edible leaves and seeds often incorporated into oriental dishes. (In 2009, Pepsi introduced a seasonal flavored drink called Pepsi Shiso in the Far East, Shiso being an oriental reference to Perilla). Perilla also yields a dye. Added to pickled foods where it acts as an antimicrobial agent. Rich in minerals and vitamins and has anti-inflammatory properties; used in folk medicine to battle common cold.
After bloom, plant has a significant growth spurt.
Easy to propagate by cuttings or seed.
