[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Navajo Narrative') | Posted on May 16, 2019 ]

I should have waited another year before registering this one as the bud count is higher than I recorded in the original AHS data submission. I get around 15 buds, but at least two of the test growing locations get many more. It is one tough Daylily. Shrugs off drought in Texas, handily survived a Wisconsin --30°F winter, and performs as well in containers as it does in ground.

[ Cutleaf Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Orangeola') | Posted on August 22, 2014 ]

Slow grower and excellent for containers in the South. In three years time, has grown three inches in height and 36 inches in width. More tolerant of heat than most other Japanese Maples. Receives full morning sun here in North Central Texas. I only water it about once a week, and that frequently only in July and August. At the height of the summer heat, some of the leaves will turn tan and dry up, but the tree quickly recovers when conditions are less harsh. Fine, lacy foliage is a nice contrast with more substantial-leafed perennials and shrubs. Good choice for smaller gardens with limited space.

[ Rose (Rosa 'Heritage') | Posted on August 22, 2014 ]

Blooms in flushes throughout the warm months. Has often bloomed into December, here. Flowers will be smaller with successive blooms. Tolerant of partial shade. I rarely ever give supplemental water. However, while it will lose leaves in drought conditions, it is one tough shrub and always comes back as good as ever. Flower fragrance can change from light floral to one similar to insecticide Pyrethrum -- at least it does to my nose -- so I don't often cut sprays for indoors.

[ Hot Pepper (Capsicum annuum 'Santa Fe Grande') | Posted on August 21, 2014 ]

First year growing this pepper. Does well in containers. Fruit is much milder (to me) than jalapenos and I sometimes slice them and eat them raw, or put them on sandwiches and in salads. Will definitely grow it next year.

[ Coneflower (Echinacea 'Hot Papaya') | Posted on June 7, 2013 ]

Echinaceas tend to die quickly in my yard. Have heavy clay and probably don't amend as much as these need. Last year, I planted several varieties and paid attention to the advice to keep them from blooming the first year. Looks like it worked, at least for now.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Solar Music') | Posted on June 5, 2013 ]

One of the largest, most brilliantly colored daylilies in my yard. A real standout. Good fragrance, too. Heavy clay soil. Sun until around 2:00PM.

[ Hosta 'Patriot' | Posted on June 3, 2013 ]

Tough as nails. Was in a much smaller container for the last four years and survived two years of bad drought without a flinch. (Well, maybe a brown leaf or two, but no flinching!)
