[ Japanese Cedar (Cryptomeria japonica 'Rasen-sugi') | Posted on December 23, 2016 ]

From Singing Tree Gardens Nursery: "Every part of this tree seems to be twisted in a counter clockwise direction. It appears to have green wires wrapped around the branches much like copper wire on bonsai trained plants."

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Highland Tower') | Posted on May 8, 2016 ]

Incorrectly listed as a Diploid with the AHS. The hybridizer is no longer alive to correct it with the AHS. Highland Tower was listed in the hybridizer's catalog as tetraploid.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Bright Christmas') | Posted on March 7, 2016 ]

Parentage listed in the registration on the AHS was entered incorrectly. The correct parentage is listed on the hybridizer's website and so has been corrected here.

A Gravenstein seedling selected by Luther Burbank in 1898.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Cabbage Butterfly') | Posted on July 25, 2015 ]

[ Coprosma 'Golden Glow' | Posted on July 20, 2015 ]

A naturally occurring branch mutation of Coprosma ‘Evening Glow’.

[ Rose (Rosa 'Autumn Sunset') | Posted on April 11, 2015 ]

I placed this rose in a prominent position in my garden, on an arbor at the end of our raised veggie planter boxes that we can see from our kitchen and family room. It was a good choice as the blooms are my favorite colors for my garden, blooming in clusters of apricot and a soft golden yellow. It puts on a lovely huge display of color on its initial spring flush and then continues blooming throughout the summer. The leaves are a deep rich green and for me, disease resistant. The blooms have a nice fragrance. This is a sport of the popular orange climber by Kordes, Westerland. I added a lovely deep lavender clematis as a complement.

[ Fuchsia 'Campopple' | Posted on April 10, 2015 ]

Gall mite resistant.

[ Canna Lily (Canna x generalis 'Pringle Bay') | Posted on December 29, 2014 ]

According to Wikipedia
"Terence Bloch introduced it from South Africa and named it 'Pringle Bay', after where it originated from in that country. Somewhat mysteriously, the name 'Pink Sunburst' now seems to be the preferred name, but the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants stipulates that this is simply a synonym of the original name."

[ Orange Jasmine (Murraya paniculata) | Posted on December 18, 2014 ]

From wikipedia: "M. paniculata is the preferred host to the insect pest Diaphorina citri, the citrus psyllid. This psyllid is the vector for the citrus greening disease."
Citrus greening disease is apparently one of the most serious citrus plant diseases in the world, devastating millions of acres of citrus crops throughout the United States and abroad.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Rouge Pretty Baby') | Posted on August 24, 2014 ]

Hybridizer stated that he knows the pod parent was one of the Herrington OZ diploid daylilies but was uncertain which one it was. The one listed in the AHS registration link is incorrect. I have replaced it with 'unknown'.

A South African bulb that requires good drainage and no summer water.

[ Black Flag (Ferraria crispa) | Posted on August 4, 2014 ]
