By plantladylin on Oct 20, 2011 8:30 PM, concerning plant: Purslane (Portulaca oleracea)

Common Purslane is a herbaceous annual weed and grows wild and cultivated around the world. The plant is a sprawling succulent that requires full sun. Portulaca oleracea is edible and is also used for medicinal purposes in some cultures. Common Purslane grows in full sun and bears tiny yellow flowers.

I sometimes find this weed growing in spots in the lawn and in sandy areas along the edge of the road.

By Newyorkrita on Oct 20, 2011 5:20 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Willow Dean Smith')

It is not unusual for Willow Dean Smith to poly in my garden. I get some poly blooms each year and that has been going on as long as I have been growing it. Either way, poly or plain, the flowers are exceptionally pretty. Blooms mid late for me and continues blooming into the late season here. Loves to set bee pods which I always have to snap off.

I must spray Trial By Fire for thrips if I want the blooms to be anything but a splotchy mess.
