[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Hot Gossip') | Posted on July 19, 2014 ]

Nice big evergreen red, and a good bloomer too.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Drums Along the Mohawk') | Posted on July 9, 2014 ]

This is a very nice daylily and a real extended bloomer. It towers over the other daylilies with scapes that are almost as tall as a yardstick.

[ Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Jungle Butterfly') | Posted on July 7, 2014 ]

Not a good bloomer.

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Autumn Rose') | Posted on May 11, 2014 ]

Very vigorous, nice color.

[ Hosta 'Golden Tiara' | Posted on April 3, 2014 ]

This hosta is a rapid grower, makes a great edger plant, and also looks great as a mass planting.

[ Red-Tipped Photinia (Photinia 'Fraseri') | Posted on February 2, 2014 ]

These are everywhere here and get very big, about 15 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide. They are popular because they grow fast and make a tight hedge or screening if you want to hide something or from something. Otherwise, you have to prune it a lot. The new growth is susceptible to Entomosporium leaf spot. This will kill the shrub unless you spray regularly with a fungicide.

[ Bradford Pear (Pyrus calleryana 'Bradford') | Posted on February 2, 2014 ]

Flowers are sterile but can cross-pollinate with other trees and produce thousands of tiny pears that produce thorny seedlings, which are invasive.

[ Bradford Pear (Pyrus calleryana 'Bradford') | Posted on February 2, 2014 ]

Spring flowers smell like fish.

[ Bradford Pear (Pyrus calleryana 'Bradford') | Posted on February 2, 2014 ]

Surface roots and deep shade make it impossible to grow grass under it.

[ Golden Euonymus (Euonymus japonicus 'Aureo-Marginata') | Posted on February 2, 2014 ]

Susceptible to mildew and scale. Often reverts back to green.

[ Coneflower (Echinacea Big Sky™ Sunrise) | Posted on January 13, 2014 ]

I was disappointed in how it faded to a completely white flower in three days.

[ Whorled Milkweed (Asclepias verticillata) | Posted on January 2, 2014 ]

This plant was linked to the death of 19 horses when it was found inside the hay that was fed to the horses.

[ Pot Marigold (Calendula officinalis 'Radio') | Posted on December 25, 2013 ]

According to Wikipedia:

Calendulas are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species, including Cabbage Moth, The Gothic, Large Yellow Underwing and Setaceous Hebrew Character.

[ Hosta 'Ani Machi' | Posted on November 30, 2013 ]

This hosta looked good in the spring when it first came up, but within one month it was very ugly. This hosta does not do well in zone 8a. It does not tolerate heat very well, and I got rid of all four of mine.

[ Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum virgatum 'Morden Pink') | Posted on November 10, 2013 ]

Virginia State listed Noxious Weed.

[ Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) | Posted on November 10, 2013 ]

Virginia State listed Noxious Weed.

[ Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana) | Posted on October 16, 2013 ]

May be a noxious weed or invasive.

[ Yoshino Cherry (Prunus x yedoensis) | Posted on October 15, 2013 ]

This hybrid cherry comes from Japan and is one of the predominant cherry trees planted in Washington D.C.

[ St. Augustine Grass (Stenotaphrum secundatum 'Floratam') | Posted on October 13, 2013 ]

Floratam was released in 1973 and resists the viral infection St. Augustine decline (SAD) and the chinch bug. Not as cold or shade tolerant.

[ Eastern Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd') | Posted on October 13, 2013 ]

No ugly browning from cold, snow or ice damage in winter.
