Beautiful Teresa!! How do you know when they poly?


A few of my Maryott's bloomed before the big chill. Here is one.

Duane, those are all very nice. Can you add names? Love the Dahlias and what kind of Banana Tree is that?? Is that a Hosta in pic.5 and what is that with the yellow flowers? Beautiful. Lovey dubby

A poly just means it has 8 petals instead of the usual 6. Bobby Baxter and Leslie Maulk are working to develope more cultivars that do it on a reg basis. Every bloom isn't a poly only a percentage.
Nice pics, I love seeing all the color. It seem so gray, with all the leaves gone and the sky is dim.

First two are from early June. These are on our side entry driveway that's gets full sun.

Purple Wave (first time growing it!) Lovey dubby

Zinnia 'Zowie Yellow Flame' (my favorite Zinnia!) Lovey dubby
Thumb of 2012-12-23/Marilyn/dbc055

These next ones are from Sept. 23, as I didn't get any pics during the Summer, because of the heat, humidity and mugginess. Thumbs down Grumbling

First two are pics of Coleus 'Wizard Mix'. They get morning sun only.

Thumb of 2012-12-23/Marilyn/202d02 Thumb of 2012-12-23/Marilyn/12dfe5

Next two pics are of Coleus 'Tapestry'. They get morning sun only. Love it! Lovey dubby First time growing it!

Thumb of 2012-12-23/Marilyn/4e0db7 Thumb of 2012-12-23/Marilyn/e0fe34

Next four are Fuchsia triphylla 'Gartenmeister Bonstedt, Fuchsia triphylla 'Firecracker' and Lobelia erinus 'Laguna Compact Blue With Eye'. First time growing the 'Firecracker' and most likely the last. While it's very colorful and beautiful, I don't have enough shade it needs. I usually plant the 'Gartenmeister' These all got morning sun only.

These next pics are in containers at the end of our side entry driveway and get full sun with some late shade.

Next one is Salvia 'Mesa Purple', which overwintered in the container outside during our unusually mild Winter. Green Grin!


Next one is Salvia microphylla 'San Carlos Festival', which overwintered in the container outside during our unusually mild Winter. Green Grin!


Next, Salvia 'Big Swing'. Second year growing it. Green Grin!


Next is Salvia leucantha 'Danielle's Dream'. First year growing it and love it! Lovey dubby

Hey Marilyn,
Did you by chance save any seeds from your salvia? I'd love to try some of those. Trade?

Marilyn WOW! Just love all your salvia. I'm going to look for this one Salvia leucantha 'Danielle's Dream' Lovey dubby Lovey dubby . Never seen it before, do you have a source for it? The zinnia is beautiful, is that hot pink or red in the center of the zinnia? Your containers with the Fuchsias and Lobelia are stunning.

Thanks Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
