Thanks for the new thread, Mike. My daylilies are getting started here now. It's so exciting! I was out today doing weeding, and even got one potted daylily planted that I had purchased last year. It's called White Dragon, and has buds. I'm so thrilled! Can't wait to see that one bloom. I planted it 3 plants away from Inner View, which is the one in the picture.

Beautiful Blooms everyone! Love that Awesome Blossom and Bela Lugosi, and the Moonlit Masquerade (excited because I have it on the way from a recent order!!) ...

My want list grows faster than my plant stash $ or my beds!!

Just gorgeous everyone! My blooms are pretty much history. I have a scrape on a Westborne Oranges for Christmas that I just purchased about 4 weeks ago...was shocked to see the scrape, but it means I have at least a couple more DLs to look forward too.

SGA has really been a standout for me - this is the first year for both SGA and Christmas Is to bloom.

Genna I have never had luck with rebloomers but right now I have 3-4 that are already reblooming and that is so exciting!! I'm really shocked since it has been so dry but I have put down new soaker hoses and have done a better job of watering than I normally do so maybe that is the answer:)

YW, Mike. I just got Isolde this year, and am still deciding whether or not I like it. I think it was a bonus. I also got South Seas last year. I have it in a pot, but it may have crown rot. I'm hoping not. I got it, and several others, potted up very late in the season last year after they had been soaking way too long in water. I've had at least 2 of those crown rot on me, but it didn't happen until this spring. Also discovered that the Miracle Grow potting soil they were potted with was quite saturated, so I'm sure that was a contributing factor.

Kimbar, I got Applique last year. It's a really nice one. I have 2 scapes on it this year. Had its first bloom of the season today, and it sure looked nice. It bloomed its first year, too.

I have all my files backed up through Carbonite. It's worth it in case the computer ever crashes.

Kjuddy, I love Mambo Maid and Christmas Is. CI has been on my wish list for ages. Don't know why I don't just get it. I'm sure it's not expensive. I think you're right that extra watering is the answer for rebloom if one is having a drought. We don't get a lot of rebloom here in the north, so it's always exciting when we do.

Here's what was blooming in my gardens on June 21.

The first is Applique, then 2 different unnamed seedlings of my late mother's. The reddish one is a very early bloomer for me, and quite prolific. The second, which I call Cranview Tangerine Ruffles, is an EM.

Yay! I have my computer back! Thanks Mike. Hopefully I did not loose everything as they were supposed to take an image of the disk before wiping it. We shall see. If that did not work I should have some of the pictures on my flash drive, just not all 6 years I had on the hard drive. Crossing my fingers. My DH is the computer Guru in the house and he is supposed to see if he can restore the info on the image this weekend.

For sure on paying for that technology!! I was telling my son how 30 yrs ago when I got married, we had a light bill and a phone bill... now, people have cable or satellite bills, internet service, cell phone, plus the other. The "basics" have gotten a LOT more expensive!!

Mike, I don't think that's Macbeth, I just checked AHS and it doesn't have a dark border. I think it may be Edge of Darkness. It is very beautiful.

Mike, I believe yours is Macbeth. I checked Tinker's daylily database, and their pic looks just like yours. It doesn't state in the description that it has a dark edge, but sometimes the hybridizer will not list every little detail in the description.

Mike, it does look like the hybridizers photo, mine hasn't had the dark edge to date, that was why I went to the AHS, their photo does not show a dark edge, maybe you should send them your photo along with the hybridizers, it sure makes it confusing.

Most of the photos on the AHS database are the hybridizers' own photos. The only time they use someone elses photo is when the hybridizer doesn't have one. I had someone contact me from the AHS to ask permission to use one of my photos once. I was more than willing to let them use it, and asked if I could submit others. I was told that they generally only use the hybridizers photos, but in this case they couldn't get one of the particular daylily they were looking for.

Mike, I am enjoying your pictures! I am especially noticing your whites. I am planning to redo some daylily beds this fall, making them color coordinated, and adding companion plants of the same colors. One will be a red, white, and blue bed. Wish I had not gotten rid of our White Crinoline, but we have enough whites or near whites.

Doris, I have 3 beds that are color coordinated. One is White and yellow, another is purple and yellow, and the third is all shades of pink. All are still works in progress, especially the pink bed. I still have many DLs in there that are not pink and need to be swapped out with ones that are. I have a pink rambler rose in there, some pink monarda, pink veronica, short pink Asiatic lilies that need to be moved, as they are in the back being hidden, etc. It's really starting to look good.

DORIS...hello!!!!!!! I have been looking for you here and on ATP. So glad things are clipping along.

Ive tried in the past to color coordinate , I had no luck. To many eyes that would bring in other colors.

This is a picture of the flower that the Petits were fiving away at MECCA. Im not so sure I like it, but I will give it another year since it bloomed so fast after bring it home. It recurls the minute it opens and Im not sure about that.

Karen, I know that those beds have to look good! Sometimes please take a few pictures and show us these areas. I am planning three beds, too. One will be red, white, and blue, another will be yellows, oranges, and dark purples, and then different shades of pinks and purples. I will rely heavily on companion plants to get the blue color in addition to some bluish daylilies. I want to get the daylilies moved this fall and move in any shrubs needed for the appropriate colors. I want to get away from rows of daylilies in these areas. There will be many daylilies to move around and move out for future club plant sales. We have lists of the daylilies in these areas and are in the process of deciding which ones to keep. We will be on the 2014 Region 5 Spring Tour, so I would like to have it ready before then. One of these days I hope that I will just be content with having everything planted and enjoying them when they bloom. I think I am getting closer to that day. I am tired of moving daylilies and making new beds. Newer daylilies do not excite me as much as they once did.

Hi Pam, I have been too busy working outside to spend much time on these forums. I check in a few times each week but don't post much of anything. I have taken very few pictures of daylilies this summer. Taking pictures takes too much time and has to be done in the mornings when I should be working before it gets HOT. I will regret not taking pictures come this fall and winter.

I just planted the Petits' Mecca Magic a few days ago. It bloomed here but I was busy at the time and did not take the time to really enjoy it. Maybe you will like it better next year once it was settled in.

I know what you mean about the eyes being a problem when color coordinating. I have already thought of that. I am not sure how I will handle those. I may make an "EYE" bed for all those misfits!

Doris, I don't think the beds as a whole will photograph all that well, but I'll try. Bear in mind that not all are the colors I want in those beds, as they're still a work in progress. Maybe they always will be. If only I could retire and spend all my time gardening. In the meantime, please check out my daylilies here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1269619/ . I would post in the daylilies forum, but I don't have time to post both places. Already spend a ton of time online.

Thanks, Karen. I enjoyed looking at all your pictures. You have many very pretty daylilies. I really like Purple Sun and your mother's white seedling. I will definitely have to add a couple of white cone flowers to the red, white, and blue bed, and maybe a couple of red ones, too. You are right about it being hard to capture the colors together in a bed. If you get too far away to get more plants in the picture, you miss the closeness of seeing the blooms.

Exactly. I did take some pics tonight, but not of those beds. Will have to see about it another time. If I get the angle right, it might look good. Zooming in helps, as it compresses everything together. That white coneflower I have was a seedling that came up from my Double Decker coneflowers. I've tried different fancy coneflowers, but have little success with them.

Mike, we added White House Lady a few weeks ago for the red, white, & blue bed. Found it on the Lily Auction from Newbeginnings. Got WHL, another white Wedding Festival, more Ruby Spider, and received All American Chief as a bonus. This was our first time getting daylilies from Newbeginnings, and we were very pleased. She sent extra fans with all and the prices were very good.

Thanks for the welcome, folks. When I got L.E., There was a second one that had a proliferation on it. I asked if I could take that and they said yes and popped it off for me. It did great all winter until a starling took it this spring. Pulled the little thing right out of the ground.

Anyway, there were 2 fans last fall and now there are 4 so it won't be long before I have enough to share.

Autumn King

Nice, Mike! That's outstanding! I need to move mine, as it's not doing so well where it's at. Getting kind of crowded out by other, bigger ones. It needs more room for itself. I moved my BS a few years ago, and it's not doing as well as it was in its previous location. Might have to move it again.

I love VF! Gorgeous! Autumn King is looking great. I know it's not the most fantastic looking flower compared to what's out there now, but I got it for the fact that it's tall and blooms very late. It's also an heirloom variety from 1950.

Mike are your lilys in REBLOOM because you are cooler where you are? Mine haven't even set new scapes for reblooms!

It has been so hot here, I really don't expect many of them to rebloom at all.

I am surprised though about Walter's Tango and Sunrise, Sunset Beautiful. They are just a few days away from being 1 year old and I have had 17 blooms on SSB and 17 blooms on WT also!

Here is #17 on SSB

So nice to see the beautiful blooms since it is SOOOO scorching hot here!

Thanks everyone! I took a couple of days on July 19-21 to take my two youngest kids (18 and 19) to a quick trip to the Dallas area to do some shopping for college (and for my son to visit his GF from nearby Garland). We took my daughter's new Toyota Camry bc of the better gas mileage...we hadn't been in town 10 minutes when we were involved in an accident and her car was messed up! Thankfully, it was not our fault and no one was injured ...the car will be repaired next week and it will be good as new I hope! But, I came home from there with a tooth infection and I have been fighting it ever since. Finishing up the second round of antibiotics now and they arent working either - it is about to get the best of me!! But, they are sending me to an endodontist next week for a THIRD root canal on the same tooth!!!!! Hopefully that will resolve my problems! My computer also crashed so I was offline a while. Needless to say it has been a little rough the past three weeks - but nothing that can't be resolved fairly easily...well, everything except losing all the pictures and things I had on my hard drive that crashed :(

Haven't done much out in the yard because it has been super hot here and every time I get hot, it makes the pain in my jaw escalate... so I just go out and water and the grass in the beds seems to be growing best of all of course! ^_^ Oh well, I tell myself that because my nest will be empty this fall for the first time in almost 25 years, that i will have PLENTY of time to get all those beds cleaned out AGAIN! We will see... I have a 'to do' list for inside and outside that I figure would take about 5 years to accomplish ...LOL

I did have a bloom from one of the DLs that I potted up until fall, but I failed to get a picture of it. All of them that I put in the ground and have in pots seem to be happy and settling in well. Hopefully that will mean a lot more blooms come spring!

Sure have missed seeing ya'lls beautiful blooms. It extends my 'season' by months!!

Well, they ended up having to pull the tooth yesterday :( The infection had spread to a level that they were pretty certain the root was fractured and that it couldn't be saved. Due to the extension infection and prior jaw surgery, my dentist was very nervous about trying to pull it, but he got me in to an oral surgeon yesterday. So, although I am not feeling good, the theory is that I will finally begin to feel better!

LOL on those teenagers... I have a long list for them, ha ha but mostly it is stuff they need to get done in their rooms or getting their stuff packed to go. My daughter, who is the youngest, is headed off to college with her brother this coming week and I am trying hard to get ready mentally and physically. (They have a long list of to dos for Mom too!)

It seems like the only thing doing much in my beds is the grass! About the only thing I have blooming is my hardy hibiscus, my crepe myrtles, butterfly bushes and phlox and all of them are beginning to feel the heat except for maybe the CM.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Do you know if there is a way to tell if a daylily is a TET or a DIP?

I have several that my daughter got for me from Hardy's Daylilies in Litchfield CT, and I think they may be seedlings that Mr. Hardy has crossed...don't know that for sure, but there is no information on them as to DIP or TET or rebloom or anything else.

They are awfully pretty and I really like them, but I'd like to know if there is a way to tell.

The only way I use to tell whether dip or tet is to try and set a pod on it. I have a noid that I got from a friend and I put dip pollen and tet pollen on it and the tet pollen took and formed a pod. So now I know it is a tetraploid.

Mike, I was thinking Eenie Weenie would look good with that combo with Yellow Lollipop, Stella's Ruffled Fingers and Kanai Sensei. It's really cute, and only 10" high. I have Yellow Lollipop, but so far it has not done much for me. Had it for about 3 years or so now. Just moved it this year and added manure to the planting hole, so we'll see how it does next year. I just love SRF. I have gotten nice instant rebloom from it here.

Genna, glad to hear that the accident was not your fault and that your daughter's car got replaced. Sorry to hear about the continued infection in your tooth. I would be yanking the offender out rather than opting for another root canal. The one I had done didn't last more than maybe 5 years. The tooth is all falling apart now. It's a temporary fix. You're better off without it. Hope you're feeling better by now. Sorry that your hard drive crashed also and you lost a lot of pics and such. I have all mine backed up through a remote backup service, so if it ever crashes, my files are safe. That was after one of my sisters lost all her files in a hard drive crash. I didn't want to take a chance and lose all my files as well.

Genna, I too have not gotten much done in my yard the past few weeks, so I want to get a lot of weeding and mulching done this weekend if I can. One weekend I took off to do outing to 3 different beaches, and last weekend I went out and did some non-gardening related stuff. Needed some time away from the gardens for a bit, plus it was just so darn hot and humid. I was walking around out there a few days ago to take a few pics, and the weeds have grown outrageously, even in the beds that I had all weeded just a month or so ago. Need to get the mulch in so I don't have so many weeds to pull. I need a crepe myrtle. I have seen a few beauties around, and they are just so outstandingly beautiful. I saw one the other day, and it was just gorgeous. There aren't many around here, as there aren't a lot of hardy varieties, but I think hybridizers are producing more of the hardy ones now.

Hope you're feeling better Cindy.

Rain and cooler temps here; some dividing and weeding is getting done at last! My only 3 blooming DLs are a tiny yellow with lots of seedpods on the plants (not sure of name) a few franz hals, and an Olallie late that is still full of buds! I think it is Late Embers. Definately going to keep adding lates and very lates. By the way, I figured out that (a late bloomer with a kind of lavendar color) is Lavender Deal. It is a lovely flower, especially this time of year. Just finished blooming.

Caitlinsgarden, your baby yellow daylily that's still blooming could be Yellow Lollipop. I got this as a gift plant and was going to give it away until I read in G-Wild catalog that it is a "long blooming " plant. It is currently in a pot but, I will transplant soon to the aforementioned location. Currently have one rebloom scape on it.

Mike, my Autumn King is now blooming. You know it never gets as tall as it's registered height of 54" in my garden. I may try moving it to see if it will do better in a different location. Or maybe I'll dig in some manure with it and move some of the other daylilies away from it, as it may be getting crowded out. I might just divide the clump and move part of it to see how it does.

Hello all. Did end up having to have the tooth taken out on August 10 because the infection had gotten so much worse! Dentist said I no longer had a choice. I think I about waited too long because it took me several days to recover !! That infection was really taking a toll on me! Good thing I was on the road to recovery because my youngest son ended up having to be hospitalized for three days with stomach pain - but they don't know what was wrong - just that his stomach was very distended and full of fluid... they think it might be gall bladder related but haven't confirmed yet. He got out of the hospital last Thursday just because he was supposed to move into college that evening... we got him moved in, then my daughter moved in on Saturday, my husband had shoulder surgery on Monday... can you say crazy???? It has been a crazy, crazy, hectic month at my house! But, I HOPE that we have everything under control finally!! ^_^

Your blooms are gorgeous as usual. Have been on the lookout for some repeat blooms but haven't gotten any. I have an NOID variety blooming that was actually the first DL I ever purchased. I have had it for about 5 yrs now and this is only the second time it has bloomed. It is a pitiful looking bloom and I really probably need to remove it from the bed. :(

Karen, I have a huge bed that is in a circle of my driveway that i had completely cleaned and mulched this spring- if you saw it now you would think it has NEVER been cleaned out. THe nut grass and bermuda grass have taken it over AGAIN! I can not seem to come up with a long term solution to keep it clean!!!! I can not tell you how many hours I spent on it in the spring - but days and days worth of work... all gone now!

One of the grasses gets stalks with what looks like small miniture cat tails. I call them little fuzzies. Don't know what that is and the other gets tall stalks with fingers of seed. I should really take pics of it.

I'm with you guys. Have spend many days and hours weeding beds, and now you'd never know it. The darn weeds grow like...well, weeds! Those invasive grasses are some of the worse weeds to get rid of. I have nut grass in some beds, and quack grass in others. Some other type of grass, too. Maybe witch grass. Most of the grasses in my beds are annual varieties that are easy to get rid of and keep under control with mulch. All the roots have to come out, and leave one little, tiny piece and you have more coming up. Impossible to get every tiny piece of root out.

The invasive perennial grasses cannot be controlled with mulch. I don't think weed block would help much with those, either. Same goes for many other invasive perennials. Mulch will only control weeds that would come up from seed. You can control those with Preen and other pre-emergents, too. Of course the weeds that have already come up will have to be weeded out before putting that or the mulch down. I'm sure all of you guys are already aware of this, though.

Yeah, I have nutsedge (nutgrass), bermuda grass which is one of the worst!, bahaha grass, and some that I can't identify! I have actually fought the nutsedge with roundup enough that I am FINALLY making a dent in it, but it seems the other grasses just increase due to the lack of competition by the nutgrass!! My beds look like jungles and it makes me just want to throw in the towel!! :( Had hoped to get some work done in them this past weekend, but with temps over 100 and HIGH humidity, it was all I could do to get the lawn mowed again! It is supposed to cool down on friday so maybe I can get somethings cleaned up this weekend!!

August was just a total blur... I am hoping for September to be a little calmer. Husband is slowly recovering from his shoulder surgery and getting fairly good with doing most things with his left hand, youngest son will probably have to have gall bladder surgery, but it might be October before we actually schedule surgery... now if I could just get my gardening under control! :)

Did ya'll get a lot of rain out of Issac? We got 3.5 inches in the first wave that came thru but it was spread out over two days and was not heavy downpours - just good nice rains... then the next wave came thru we got about 1.5 inches in about 40 minutes...a downpour - thank goodness it didn't last long!! lots of wind and lightening, and lots of people in the state without power for several hours, but we never lost ours. Hope that everyone is safe and sound!!

I can sympathize with you Genna. My beds are horrible with weeds this year. I get a lot of different grasses in them but I also get some time of wild vine that looks like a morning glory and I also get 2 different kinds of thistles, one has pickers and the other doesn't. What a mess, and oh I forgot all the violets that have invaded my beds. It is a lost cause trying to get rid of them.

I don't have a clue what it is ... I guess I REALLY need to learn what some of these things are that I am trying to erradicate!!

My fence has trumpet vine all over it as well and I am trying to get rid of it - that stuff is almost impossible to kill too... sometimes I just look at it all and think of how quickly it could all revert to a jungle like state!! :(

Genna, I know what you mean by wanting to throw in the towel. I look at many areas here and it just becomes overwhelming. I put down Ortho poison ivy/oak and tough brush killer down on one area that's overrun with mint, tradescantia, Jerusalem artichoke and blackberries/raspberries. I sprayed twice, and barely a dent in it. Seemed to be working well at first, but then more stuff came up. It looks like a jungle out there - literally! I have weeds that tower over me!

We got lots and lots of rain from Issac here. Lots of light rain and lots of heavy downpours. My gardens are quite happy!

Hemlady, those vines that look like morning glory are bindweed, I believe. Keep working at the violets. You will eventually get them under control for the most part. They key is making sure you get the roots. Best to get them early in the season, too, just after blooming, the reason being that they not only make seeds from above after they flower, but in the late summer they make seeds at the base of the plant, just above the roots, without any blooms at all. Very odd, but true.

Yes, trumpet vines are very invasive. I have one, too. Hardy blooms, so really not worth the aggravation. Ugh!!!!!

One... I have hundreds it seems of the trumpet vines. my hummers LOVE them but I sure don't ^_^ I pulled grass that was almost as tall as me out of the bed that I worked on this past weekend... bad thing is that it was CLEAN in May! One section of it is so overrun with bermuda grass... and it is where i planted some of my new DLs back in June. I don't know HOW I am going to get that bermuda grass out of there!! I worked all Sunday afternoon almost 6 full hours and got about half of the bed cleaned back out - but this other half is where all the bermuda has invaded the new mulch and I can barely tell where my DLs are. :( It just is so overwhelming at times! I think I am going to try spraying with roundup in areas where there are no plants so that maybe I can get it down to a manageable amount... but I couldn't do that Sunday because there was a slight breeze. Then I was hurting so bad Sunday night and yesterday that I didn't get it done. It has been a while since I have worked 6 straight hours of hard yard work and my body was NOT impressed... :( Going to the chiropractor today because I managed to get something out of place in all the tugging and digging and pulling... so guess if he gets me fixed up I can get back at it tonight! This bed is in a circle of a circle gravel drive, and the bermuda has spread over the rocks and is spreading into the bed over my larger rock border. I think I am just going to spray RU on ALL the gravel!! MAYBE if I can get it out of the bed, I can keep it from spreading back into it that way.

Bindweed... that seems like a fitting name! It is one stuff monster as well. Although it is a lot easier to pull up and deal with than the trumpet vine...

I have one bed that is so far gone, that i have decided I am going to dig the few plants that are left in it out and pot them up and roundup the whole bed and start over. Not the best solution - but it is the only one that is time effective ... I lost most of the plants in that bed last year when I was ill and couldn't stay out in the heat and water. In fact, I have three beds that I lost almost everything in because they were further from the house which meant pulling a hose, which I couldn't do... maybe I just need to do that to all three. IF I put all the plants back into one bed, it might actually be enough to look decent! :)

I really envy all ya'll beautiful photos of the nice clean beds and blooms! I THOUGHT I was on my way to that this past June, but my sprayer quit in July and the first one I bought to replace it wouldn't work - and neither would the one that they replaced it with... and by then it was super hot and I just didn't get the battle fought, so now I pay the price. I just keep thinking eventually I will be able to keep up with the weeds and grass as I go and it won't be such a battle...
And, you know the worst part??? I look at other places in my yard and think "oh a bed would look so nice there... or wouldn't it be great to have a bed all the way around the edge of the fence", etc. Have I lost my mind???
(don't answer that!)

I actually had a surprise DL bloom yesterday and forgot to go back out with the camera to get a picture! It was in my new foundation bed that actually still looks nice enough to photograph... and I missed it. It was just planted back in July so I was surprised to see it blooming.

Have a great day everyone!

Genna, are you getting the Bermuda grass from seed, or is it creeping in from the lawn? If it's creeping in, perhaps you could try that black plastic garden edging that goes several inches under the ground along the edges of the beds. I have the on one bed, and it sure helps keep out the grass and clover and such.

Yes, I would definitely spray all the gravel, and keep it up till it stops coming back. Take that, Bermuda grass!!!!!

One thing you could do on that bed you want to start over with is lay down a black plastic tarp, and put potted plants on top of it. Keep it down for at least a year. Might have to be 2 years if you have some really tough stuff in there.

Oh, you sound so much like me. Always thinking about putting in more beds, and I don't even have the time to take care of the ones I already have. I keep thinking that I'll eventually get a handle on it all, but that won't happen unless I retired. I wish!

Neat bloom...

I THINK most of my bermuda grass is from creep, but I think I do get some contamination from seeds - particularly when my son or husband mows. I always blow the grass AWAY from my beds... they don't always think to do that... :(

Genna, put the mulching kit on the mower and you wont have to worry about anything blowing.
Cindy, I try to plant some Castor Bean seeds indoors a few weeks before the last frost to get a head start. I didn't do that this year. I was too busy with daylilies. Go figure!!! LOL!!

Well I directly sowed mine outdoors about mid May and they are about 4 ft tall right now. Don't know if I will get any bloom. I think the drought affected them a lot.

That could be the problem then Mike. I didn't water them much. It is pouring right now so they should be happy.

Mike, I think the weeds are more like the poor. There are so many more of them.

Love your castor beans. Cindy, I hope you get some bloom before the frost comes. I have a brug that I'm waiting on blooming. The buds are just starting. I hope it gets a chance to bloom before we get a frost.

Thanks Karen. You sure know your plants. LOL!! I like mixing in some PS, Coleous and Caladium for long lasting colour.

Yes, the PSs are really nice with coleus, though I've never grown caladiums. This year was my first year for growing canna lilies, and now I love them! Never was interested in them before.

Not hardy. Has be used as an annual. Maybe perennial in very warm zones? Not sure if it is.

You can over winter indoors by a sunny warm window or under grow light.

Good to know, Mike. You can overwinter a lot of things.

Hey, did anyone here have problems with impatiens this year? Mine all died, and I think it was from some kind of mildew fungus. Very disappointing. I had one New Guinea impatien that did great. Wasn't affected by that fungus, even though it was right next to the other kind.

I bought them twice and lost all of them. There was an article in our newspaper that explained it. It hit greenhouse growers as well as people that started impatiens from seed. It does not bother New Guinea impatiens. The article also said that we should not plant impatiens for several years in spots where they died.

Thanks for the info. I will look that up. Would a fungicide work on it? I guess I won't be doing impatiens for a couple of years now. Will stick with the New Guinea kind for now.

Apparently fungicide will only work as a preventitive. If they plants are already infected, then they're doomed. And it could be five years before you can grow impatiens in areas where infected plants were growing. Guess we'll have to grow other things. Here's a link to an article that I liked: http://thecoastalstar.ning.com/profiles/blogs/homeowners-find-alternatives-as-fungus-wipes-out-impatiens

We had this to attack our reseeding impatiens, too. Too bad because we like the color in the shady areas. One positive is that they haven't come in areas where they are not wanted.

Cass, I'm not sure what you mean when you say "they haven't come in areas where they are not wanted".

I'm going to go with begonias or NG impatiens for next years. Not quite the same, but don't have a choice. The regular impatiens was a nice, cheap filler.
