[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'SunSugar F1') | Posted on August 17, 2018 ]

A comment in praise of SunSugar is probably redundant, but it is such a great tomato I will comment. My whole family loves it, as does everyone I share some with. Very productive.......enough fruit to graze on in the garden and pick for future eating. As long as I raise tomatoes, there will be room in the garden for SunSugar.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Dr. Wyche's Yellow') | Posted on August 17, 2018 ]

I found a plant of Dr. Wyche's at a local favorite nursery this spring and as I love to experiment I couldn't resist trying a plant as it was completely new to me. It was a good choice. The medium sized plants produced a moderate number of well formed fruit. Golden Yellow in color and makes nice slices. Fruity flavor, sweet but with a little sharpness. Makes a great sandwich. A definite keeper if I can find it again. I can recommend it.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Black Krim') | Posted on August 9, 2018 ]

I grow tomatoes for sandwiches and salads, and to give away. This is my second year with Black Krim, I still like it, and it will be back another year. Nice large tomatoes, fairly productive numbers-wise. Often oddly shaped. I sometimes have a hard time knowing when to pick it when it is at its prime. I'm also growing Black From Tula and find them quite similar.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Jet Star') | Posted on July 11, 2018 ]

This is my first year trying Jet Star. My plant looks like it is determinate......a compact plant with lots of tomatoes that will be ripening near the same time. The first one was ripe today so I gave it a try. Flavor was mild but pleasing. I will make a judgment as more ripen and then decide about next year. I'm thinking probably next year......

[ Hosta 'Victory' | Posted on May 14, 2018 ]

I got a nice start of Victory from Wolf Creek and it adapted to my garden and grew quickly. It is a large handsome Hosta which is easily recognizable. The leaves are huge and the color contrast with the border is great. Bloom stalk is tall. I would recommend it.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Goliath') | Posted on April 23, 2018 ]

There is a great farm stand in my area where I buy tomatoes before my own are on. They grow Goliath and it is a very nice tomato with great flavor. I'm growing a plant this year.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Kellogg's Breakfast') | Posted on August 11, 2017 ]

This is the first year that I have grown Kellogg's Breakfast tomato and I am well pleased. The plant is large, healthy, and vigorous and is covered with developing beef-steak type fruit, which are large. It has a mild pleasant flavor and the center is meaty and quite solid. Well worth growing.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Fantastico') | Posted on July 19, 2017 ]

I am always swayed when I read that a plant has received an award. This was All American in 2014 so it tempted me. My plant was covered with fruit when I bought it. It has stayed small and ripened lots of fruit. Flavor is OK but it has a tough skin which puts me off. Would probably be good in a container in a small garden. I have limited space so may not plant again next year.

[ Rose (Rosa 'Day Breaker') | Posted on June 3, 2017 ]

Day Breaker is a vigorous healthy rose here and I haven't had any cultural problems with it. The bush covers itself with nicely formed blossoms that age well. It grows quite large. I bought my mother one of these because the hybridizer is Fryer from England and that is my mom's maiden name. I would highly recommend this rose. A favorite. It is being carried by a local nursery and has been for years. It must sell well, An award winner in England.

[ Intermediate Bearded Iris (Iris 'Spiced Peaches') | Posted on May 13, 2017 ]

Spiced Peaches remains one of my favorite Iris IB's. Each year when it blooms I appreciate it more. Nice straight stems, good bud count. nice ruffled form and substance, and the blooms last. Best of all is the rich peach color, which carries across the garden. I'll be moving some starts to another location this year. Great for the show bench if you catch it on the right day.....

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Spinning Wheel') | Posted on January 23, 2017 ]

Spinning Wheel and Rose Tattoo were the first two irises that I ordered. Both were Nearpass iris and I think they were very forward looking for their time.

[ Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Red Pearl') | Posted on December 18, 2016 ]

Red Pearl is a spectacular Amaryllis. Mine is tall with large blossoms, which are a very rich, intense shade of dark red. The petals are wide, giving the bloom a very full look. One of my favorites so far this bloom season.

[ Hosta 'Hottsy Tottsy' | Posted on August 19, 2016 ]

Hottsy Tottsy is a nice, bright golden-yellow, medium-sized hosta. Color stays bright all summer. In my garden it is a moderate grower , Good substance. A nice contrast to other hostas growng nearby. Well worth a spot in a shady garden.

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'She') | Posted on January 5, 2016 ]

It's interesting to me that the pod parent of 'She' is 'Eye Candy' which is a Keppel BB from 2004.....

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Ovation') | Posted on October 31, 2015 ]

At the time of its introduction in 1969, Ovation became the standard by which the pink irises were judged. It remained the standard for several years. Nowadays, pinks are getting better all the time.

[ Rose (Rosa 'Tahitian Sunset') | Posted on October 18, 2015 ]

Tahitian Sunset is one of the most satisfying roses that I have in my garden. The plant grows and blooms well. The blossoms have very nice classic HT form. and are pleasant even when full blown. Color varies according to the season, but is always pleasant. This is one that I will replace if I happen to lose it.

[ Crocosmia 'Mistral' | Posted on October 3, 2015 ]

[ Dahlia 'Ketchup & Mustard' | Posted on September 26, 2015 ]

Dahlia Ketchup & Mustard is a Dahlia regularly found on the winners table at shows here in Utah. Color is bright red with yellow border and tips. Form is Formal Decorative, 8 to 10 inches, and on nice stems for show and cutting. Plants grow 5 feet tall and hold flowers up. Nice in the garden or as a cut flower.

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Laced Cotton') | Posted on September 11, 2015 ]

Laced Cotton is often listed as pure white. While it is mostly white, if you look at the hafts you will see some purple haft marks. I have read a number of times that it is actually a plicata with little or no plicata markings.

[ Rose (Rosa 'Marilyn Monroe') | Posted on August 24, 2015 ]

People who show roses call their best show roses "bankers." I don't show, but if I did, this would be a regular entry. Nearly every bloom has perfect form and it produces blossoms all season. It is from a cross of Sunset Celebration, which it resembles, and St, Patrick. A favorite....
