This variety and Sweet Autumn Clematis are the best Clematis I have ever grown in my no fuss garden. It blooms just about non stop throughout the growing season. VERY carefree and easy to grow!

By plantladylin on Sep 13, 2011 10:14 AM, concerning plant: Southern Sword Fern (Nephrolepis cordifolia)

The Southern Sword fern is found in woodland areas of the U.S. from zone 8 through zone 10. The fronds are 2 1/2 inches in width and grow to 3 feet in length with many leaflets on each side of the rachis. This fern is an introduced species here in Florida and it is considered a category 1 invasive; it forms dense stands that quickly displace native species. Spores on the underside of the leaves are dispersed by the wind, but this plant also spreads by underground runners.

Easy, easy pollen, have not tried pods yet, since it was new this year. A top notch plant with a long bloom period. A+

I have used the pollen easily on this one, but I'm unable to set pods. This is one of my favorites!

The Coontie is a slow growing medium shrub-like plant that attains approximately 3' - 4' in height as well as width. It grows naturally in many areas and is used as a ground cover in landscapes here in Florida. Coontie is the larval host plant for the endangered Atala Butterfly which will completely strip the foliage but the plants always recover nicely. The brown female and male cones are 3" to 6" in length and occur on separate plants. The seeds are a bright orange color. This plant is drought tolerant once established and needs no fertilizer or water thereafter.

By plantladylin on Sep 11, 2011 3:57 PM, concerning plant: American Wisteria (Wisteria frutescens 'Amethyst Falls')

American Wisteria is a woody, deciduous perennial vine that is not invasive like the Asian Wisteria. The blooms of cultivar 'Amethyst Falls' are said to be fragrant, but I find the scent rather unappealing. Here in my area the bloom time is extremely short, but I still enjoy the beauty of the flowers each spring.

By plantladylin on Sep 11, 2011 2:41 PM, concerning plant: Glory Bush (Tibouchina urvilleana)

The Princess Flower is one of my all time favorites. I love the soft fuzzy foliage and the beautiful purple blooms of this fast growing shrub. It's considered a tender evergreen and freezes back during cold winters but reemerges in spring.

By plantladylin on Sep 11, 2011 2:37 PM, concerning plant: Christmas Senna (Senna bicapsularis)

The Christmas Senna is a small tree that can grow to 8' to 10' and just as wide. It is the host plant for the Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly Caterpillars.

I received my Christmas Senna as a little rooted twig from my backyard neighbor and this tree has become one of my all time favorites for winter color. The bright yellow blooms are really a gorgeous sight! My neighbor can break off a twig and stick it in our sandy Florida soil and it will root for her fine ... I've tried on numerous occasions to root a branch and have had no luck!

By plantladylin on Sep 11, 2011 2:25 PM, concerning plant: Ric Rac Orchid Cactus (Selenicereus anthonyanus)

I can't say this is a favorite plant of mine as I am not fond of thorny plants ... and this guy does have thorns! I purchased this as a small plant many years ago because I thought the zig zag stems were interesting. It's been hanging out on my deck for a long time and until a few years ago I didn't even know it was a night bloomer. The buds first appear in March and it seems to take forever for them to grow and get to the bloom stage, but once they begin to fatten up and I see and smell the very fragrant blooms ... I think it's a keeper!

By plantladylin on Sep 11, 2011 1:57 PM, concerning plant: Carolina Cherry Laurel (Prunus caroliniana)

Carolina Cherry Laurel is a native American tree occurring from North Carolina to Florida and west to Louisiana and Texas. It has alternate dark green to yellowish-green leaves, depending on the soil conditions, and it bears fragrant white flowers in late winter and early spring. In nature the Carolina Cherry Laurel is a shrubby plant that forms large colonies. It is drought tolerant once established.

Carolina Cherry Laurel is a popular shade tree for the landscape in many areas and has sweet-smelling spring blooms, but I find it to be a pest with the little trees that sprout everywhere.

We have a few Black Cherry trees around our property and neighborhood. They are pretty when in bloom and lots of birds enjoy the berries.
