I have had these for two years and they are really lovely. The bloom sort of hangs on the end of a slightly downward facing short stem from the main branch, but the flowers show up well. It is so delicate and unusual.

This plant is stunning. I have it in full sun all day in average garden soil and it is still vibrant. It starts out fairly silvery but deepens to a dark rich blue. The blooms last almost all summer. I have tried to save seeds this summer and will find out next spring if I have been successful. I lost one of the three I planted the first year (2008), moved the remaining two at least three times, and finally this summer (2011) both plants bloomed prolifically.

By Marilyn on Nov 14, 2011 10:29 AM, concerning plant: Dwarf Sunflower (Helianthus annuus 'Elf')

I grew Sunflower 'Elf' from seed and it was exciting to see it grow and bloom. Every time I looked at it in bloom, it brought a big smile to my face.

The seed pack states 'Elf' is for containers and it is perfect for containers. It is the right size.

Beautifully colored tulip. Rather expensive, but worth the trill. Delicate but strong.

Must be taken inside as a houseplant here in zone 5. Does well in a south window with little water. Cuttings are easy to root in spring.

Considered a weed/wildflower here. I find it pretty enough to leave a few in the garden even if the flower stays open for only a short time.

By SongofJoy on Nov 13, 2011 5:44 AM, concerning plant: Ric-Rac Cactus (Epiphyllum anguliger)

Easy to root and grow from stem cuttings. Sometimes confused with Selenicereus anthonyanus. At bloom time the difference in bloom color easily distinguishes one from the other. E. anguiliger blooms are white or cream and S. anthonyanus blooms are purple.

By SongofJoy on Nov 13, 2011 5:35 AM, concerning plant: Golden Euonymus (Euonymus japonicus 'Aureo-Marginata')

This plant is very tolerant of cold and also of high heat although it has a better appearance with some watering during hot, dry months. Beautiful, dense foliage and good color all year plus berries for the birds. It is subject to some plant diseases but has good resistance when grown well and with adequate water.

This plant is a strong, hardy, carefree grower in my zone and puts on a spectacular bloom display in early-to-mid spring. It blooms before putting out leaves. Along with Chaenomeles, it's one of the first things to bloom and they look lovely planted together (but don't crowd either one).

This plant has been called invasive. I find it to be a non-invasive, but vigorous grower in my zone.
