It is getting cold at last. Interestingly, some cultivar's foliage really pick up in the cold - like Laura Harwood.

But there are still some rebloomers doing their thing with one month to winter.

What gorgeous blooms for very late in the season, Glen. I'm at least as tropical as you, and my daylilies sure don't re-bloom into November.

MEA is an amazing daylily.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

That's funny Glen. You are wanting cold weather and we are complaining about spring being too cold, which it has been.

Well, SPACECOAST RUFFLES is reblooming now into winter and June. This flowering season started in August last year. 11 months so far which begun with H. lilioasphodelus.

I don't think I have ever had a July bloom yet.

Does Spacecoast Ruffles have rust problems for you, Glen? So far I only have one in the garden that seems to be immune to rust, so I'm looking for more candidates. Luckily, the rusty ones can go to my daughter's house in Utah where the dry desert air seems to keep the rust to a minimum.

Elaine and Becky, rust loves SR unfortunately. I have promised myself I will be a bit tougher and chuck the rust buckets next season. I say that every year but I am going to be strong - I think.

Oh darn. Well I'm pinning some hopes on a new fungicide I'm trying - a biologic called Actinovate rated organic and even safe to use on food. So I've sprayed my daylilies, plumeria, cannas and my fig tree. We shall see! The UF boffins who tested it had "miraculous" results against both powdery mildew and rust.

Also trying it on my orchids . . . who knows, it may be the silver bullet for the black spot diseases.

Elaine - please keep us updated on the results of this new organic treatment. Where did you obtain it?

Amazon has it. It's pretty pricey but you only use a teaspoon per gallon of water so it lasts a long time. I started with a 2oz. sample package and have treated all my orchids plus the other plants twice. Still have enough for one more treatment.

I have had buds on my SPACECOAST RUFFLES since Feb. They r now colouring up. The rust on it varies in my garden. It is such a classy bloom I don't think I can bin it, unless maybe it gets rust up the scape.

Some plants have little or no rust but others have fresh ure'spores on new leaves. I am hoping to relocate all my rusters to a bed distant from the others. It will have to be nicely dug and manured so it will take a while to do. Then I will give the rusters some TLC before removing all green bits and transplanting them. So I can see if they need degreening again I will not plant other stuff between them as I do with my others. If they don't survive all that I won't replace them.

That organic spray sounds interessting. I wonder how it works. Maybe it is another fungus/mycorrhizae ???
