[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Hey Yo Silver Edge') | Posted on November 8, 2017 ]

I was being goofy when I named this Iris. Both this Iris and 'Billowy Violet,' which are sibs, clump up fast. Now that can be a good thing, or perhaps not. When an Iris increases *very* quickly, it can also cause small rhizomes with rhizomes upon rhizome and this can decrease flower production in certain Iris varieties; causing one to have to thin the clump for better bloom.

Because this Iris began its life like its sib (sib = Sibling), there is a possibility that it will perform well in poor dry conditions close to a tree line with only afternoon sun.

After seeing another posted photo of this Iris, I'm disappointed. I probably wouldn't purchase the Iris myself.
However, my recommendation is to grow this particular Iris in **low fertility dry soil** (like close to a tree line). That's where the seedling started, and that's where I think it will perform the best. Its maiden blooms look much better than later blooms after being moved. But it suffered in its first location for several years before I finally got it moved. It looks okay at the new lot, where soil is/was fresh and more fertile, but not as good as maiden blooms.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'My Friend Mary Jane') | Posted on November 4, 2017 ]

Until I received a sweet thumbs up from a user, I didn't know anyone who posted here had purchased the daylily. And to that user, I am hoping that My Friend Mary Jane straightens up for you. She should look much better. However, it's nice to know that you are in zone 8b. I originally thought that the daylily was a semi-evergreen, while now I believe it is actually dormant. So it would be good to follow how the daylily does in zone 8b. Thanks!
