Beautiful! I look forward to seeing more beauties this year from you all.
in the basement...
sunspots,Wild from Florida,I purps, messina creeper,, a pretty pale pink, and the multi blue from last year oh, and the christmas cactus are still blooming too.
By cuttings!! a good idea for this season!
In fact I have two types of seeds - that of a branch of the plant where all the leaves were variegated (including dowels!) And other seed from the 'normal' part of the plant. So this year I will know if the ' variegated effect ' is transmitted by seed!
Fuji no Monet ... a 'Philosophy' ... or a style because it can be of different color.
Greetings from Cocoa Beach, now that we are getting ready to leave, the MG's are putting on a pretty show. They self seeded from last season so I have no idea what they are. I did have a grow out of the Cameo with the variegated leaves but see no sign of variegation in anything now growing. What is number 5? Must be a bird drop.
I so enjoy all the lovely photos posted. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope to start fresh with my mailbox (in NY) as I removed all seeds and vines last year so I could try some new varieties. Needless to say I have a lot of seed available to anyone that needs some.
Dany, I just want you to know that even if I don't post much, I treasure all the pictures that you are so good at posting. I am somewhat working on the variegated I.purpureas too. In theory right now, but I suspect that the variegation is mostly due to the presence of a harlmess virus.
On Purpurea in any case it is not transmitted by seeds. Here there are thousands of vonlonteers of purpurea and every year there is at least ONE plant that has variegated leaves ... if it was a virus there more plants under attack!
On a branch all the leaves are variegated and the other branches are normal with the same exposure to light!
The white portion of the leaf is a little bit photosensitive ... but I think it's normal ... it's like on Musa Aeae or Canna Stuttgart .
With Inoxia Datura - Missouri Marble , I think there 2 différent types one with really variegated leaves and an other with varied foliage ... yes ... but with the intervention of a harmless virus : Datura inoxia maculata this one is transmitted by seeds,.
