Talking- LOL Ronnie!


I like both of those, GT My Spiderwort is a ways off from blooming yet,
also, I have a pink flowering variety, it doesn't self-sow as rampantly as my blue one.

C'mon all ... ... dig through those old pics from last year ... or whenever,
I know that more of you have some blue bloomers! It doesn't have to be flowering right now, certainly most of mine aren't,
heck, it doesn't even have to be something that you're growing anymore.

Great idea for a topic, GT - I'd like to see more like it over time ... for other colors
it seems like it could be a nice resource for anyone looking to add a particular color to their garden,
you might scroll through a thread like this and see something that you never really considered before.

I had forgotten about this one ... and these will be blooming soon here

Oh, that's good Nat, I'm so glad those are doing okay for you.
It's typical for them to act as you describe, with little or no growth through the winter months.
In the spring, if it is getting enough light, you will see stems beginning to grow from between the foliage,
those will bear the flowers (each lasts just a day but there will be several per stem),
and following the blooms, new pup plantlets will form at the end of the stem, where the flowers had been.
Give the pups some time to establish, then they can be cut away from the mama plant
and added into your colony pot or start a new one.
They will probably already be forming little rootlets at the base, just like spider plant babies do.

Hi GT, very lovely indeed! Love the color blue, unfortunately I have only one blue in my garden at this time. (walking iris - white with blue like yours). They are getting ready to provide me a wonderful show! Now I would love to have a giant blue apostle iris Didn't know they existed til I read your thread! Thanks (save me a pup or two please)

GT ~ I'm glad you're sharing! It got me motivated to go clean up my iris bed! They are all poking out of the ground now.

The blues are just gorgeous....I don't have very many blue in my gardens, come to think of it,.... I really need to change that.

zuzu, I'm looking forward to my walking iris getting some blooms! It is a gorgeous flower. Is it fragrant?

~~~ oh...there we go....as we do this topic, please note which blooms are fragrant too! ~~~

No, I've never noticed a fragrance for the Neomarica, Nat ...
in fact, now that you ask, I don't think that any of the blue flowers that I've posted here
have much noticeable scent ... that's sort of interesting, I never really thought about it before.

Those are all so beautiful!!

I have come to the conclusion that Plantswap is a bad site for my plant budget.

thanks zuzu, that little guy is cute
eliza, that's why this forum is called plantSWAP, it is easy on the budget to get a hold of plants

Does no one grow blue water lilies?

By the way, your perennial morning glories (very beautiful)i'm jealous of! how come mine only grow one year? *sniffle, sniffle* morning glories are my favorite! when you get some seeds off of it can you send me some! where do you live? it must not get too cold where you are to have all those beauties popping up!

stazia, store your photos over on photobucket.com Tehn you just go there and copy the image URL and put it into your posts here. Very simple, and then you don't have a limit on how many photos you can put up.
