I love chinese lanterns. And now I know why my seeds didn't germinate. Those seeds that require light to germinate always throw me. I'm definitely trying again this comming spring.

Thanks for that one, Bill-- kissie

I have like 9 cactus plants.
and I read up some---
Only one might be root bound enough to bloom.
I only think that because I bought it last year when it was blooming & I have not transplanted it.

We’ve always said grandmas gardens were magical. According to your write up the Chinese lanterns shouldn’t live in her gardens yet they thrive there. Its zone 5, with moderate to poor soil, lots and lots of clay. They also grow there in dappled to full shade. These little suckers send out their rhizomes and have spread everywhere we even end up mowing them down as they love the lawn. Now hers are well established and been growing in that garden for longer than I’ve been alive, so I don’t know how far apart they were originally planted but now they grow very crowded where ever they can find space. I love them. Through out the summer they masquerade as all sorts of other perennials but in the fall when everything dies back then you can see a border of orange lanterns around most of the yard.

you continue to astound me, WW. Georgous additions...

I am simply in love with the Clivia miniata... The Fire lily

The older I get teh more I love flowering plants for the indoors. I guess I really need to go shopping---I need something around until my Holiday cactus decide to bloom.

Chinese lanterns volunteered in my vege garden for a few years. I had no idea what they were and posted a picture here and they were quickly identified.

I like the plant of the day picture and information. I wonder what it is about pansys that allows them to grow through the winter when almost everything else is killed off.

I have a few of these. Just not as house plants. Easy going in a mild climate garden too.

Thank you for the reminder...
I updated the page to include a little info about growing them in the garden. I'll try to remember to include garden growing in all future house plant profiles. :wink:

Everywhere calls all kinds of things house plants that can grow outside, in the ground, in my climate. When I go for info I can rarely find info about their proper situation outdoors. Mine are all trial and error. I have killed quite a few plants with the 'error' part.
But I have also had successes. I have about 500 sq. ft. of spiderplants covering a cliff of a more than 45 degree angle. They make an awesome groundcover and are wonderful at holding soil in place. Every single one I have tried indoors had died on me. rolz

Gloxinias are such a sexy plant to my way of growing. My mom bought them once when I was a kid. Of course they didn't survive any length of time at all but they sure were gorgeous.

So that's why your dusty miller looks so much better than mine did even before the rabbits got to them. Well now that I have the cat I may see about growing them again. Who knows maybe I'll get lucky.

Having had Flowering Quince when I lived in Port Orchard I have a question. How did you keep it from creeping into places you didn't want it and how did you weed underneath it without getting punctured? Thank you for the new plant profile.

It is on the outer edge of the entry garden, and I told it to do all its creeping towards ---> the woods. I get punctured every time!

I have flowering quince. I broke off a long twig from one my daughter had at her old house, stuck it in the ground, and it took off. Love it. It's an easy plant around here. I never do anything to it. It flowers rain or drought.

There are several kinds plant twigs that they use in arrangements. I think that Corkscrew willow is used the most because it is faster growing and cheaper, but the slow growing Harry Lauder branches are the most desired and more expensive because they are 'kinkier' and cooler!

After the foliage drops, I'll try to remember to get some close up stick pix...
The middle (foliage) pix on the Lauder page was taken yesterday...

Coral bells look lush.
MINE APPEAR MORE TINY LEAF.
I like the red bloom.

So cool to try new stuff.

teach I have neglected to list the new Plant Profiles I have been writing over the last few weeks, but that doesn't mean that I have been goofing off...
The new pages are all being added to the Plant of the Day lists, as I have been creating them.
If you are interested, you can check them out starting at the P.O.D. archive. docs

Since my Blue Lungwort was the first plant to bloom at Cedar Hill, I decided that I needed to put together a page about
How to grow and care for Pulmonaria plants which also contains information about growing Spotted Lungworts.

Ok so Bill, tell me--if I am just sitting here wanting to look up your plant profiles. other than typing in their names in the google search is there a way I am not aware of to look them up---
(other than looking up your wonderful links in various threads, I mean)
so in essence:
I am wondering if there is something available that I am not aware of to easily go to the plant profiles --so I can say, just go and read so I can learn things

I want both Jacobs ladder and Cupids dart blue any shade is my favorite color especially if it has blue blooms.
BTW Bill your not as old as you feel I know because nobody can be this old. Take it easy I am just now getting to where I can mow 2 years after the surgery and I still have to stop and rest several times before I am done thanks to Diane I am wanting and getting more flowers and plants. She just makes you want to work outside and have plants. So glad she is my friend and keeps me wanting plants. Knowing what she has been through and seeing her pretty yard makes me want to do more.

Diane - you and Jimmy can have the cupids dart, but I want a Jacob's ladder that actually will grow here. I tried a few times a couple of years ago, but they didn't even last one season, let alone return the next year.

Jimmy - I am with you both on Diane's gorgeous gardens, and also about blue flowers. A few years ago, I bought what was supposed to be a blue-eyed grass. Well it bloomed a deep purple for 2 years and I was so disappointed that I moved it to a hidden spot in another garden.

This year, when the perennials were starting to leaf out, I decided to move it and give it one more chance. Well I am here to tell you that that same plant is now blooming BLUE flowers this year!!! REAL blue! Such a pretty shade, too! I tried taking pictures the other day, but they were all blury. Not sure how long it will bloom, but I will try again if there are more blooms tomorrow.

Guess it goes to show that one should never give up on a plant until it is really dead!

Diane - I have had 2 caryopteris for many years now - when they first were being sold around here there was only one variety, but the flowers are a much lighter blue. Unfortunately, we had so much snow this past winter, that the plow guy had to plow on top of where they are planted, and they broke badly. They are now first growing from the bottom, and I hope they will fill out one again.

We saw one of these for sale at a nursery up in Connecticut a few years ago - what a pretty tree! Too bad we couldn't fit it in our car,
