Pretty LYK bloom Jackie.

I have a deep purple bloom today which I'm not sure if my camera is getting the correct color (not pleased when it does that). I really like the purple color of this bloom.

Helena, your dark bloom is nice but I love the pale beauty of Jamie Lynn, its striking.


Helena, this was the smaller of the PPV blooms yesterday. It didn;t make the star.

Reposting the bloom I submitted yesterday for comparison.

This bloom is lovely but still need to chunk it due to the spider mites.

I have that flower, too, helena I love it! well both of them... i grew them this summer and I will always love that JL.
It is weird how some have the star centers and some don't. Spidermites bugged me all summer outside, but I have them at bay in the basement garden, thanks to windex LOL.


these were from year before last, I had them this year too, but sent quite a few away to others..

update on sister:

sister called and the surgeon said her heart is fine.. surgery worked as far as fluid removal, she will always have some fluid on her lungs, but now she says she is used to it.
she is now taking the soursop stuff, and as soon as she gets done with this round of chemo, she will detox, then start on the essiac tea, which she can't drink while there is so much chemo in her body, her liver is at risk if she drinks it while she is on chemo he said. We find out right before thanksgiving if the chemo is working as far as making the tumors shrink. if it is, she will continue the chemo, if it isn't , she will do the homeopathic stuff instead of the chemo. that is the update today she said. she has received 8 cards today and was very surprised ( she called me and asked me who all these nice people are that are thinking of her) LOL

The top bloom on the LYK is over 3 inches while the lower one is just 2 inches or so.
I don't know how or why that happens.

Pretty Milky Way Jackie.

Debra, I use a 2 litter coke bottle that I cut the 2 inches off the bottom. When I stick cutting into starting soil I cover it with the coke bottle, keep the cap on in the beggining, remove it later on. It fits the pot and it's like a mini green house to keep the moisture in and leaves from drying out. I've been doing this for a very long time and most of the time the cutting take, not always though.

Todays blooms. A purple that looks blue, pretty Jamie Lynn, and purple speckled.

Debra LYK is something of a showoff. Giving us different looks and the blue LYK does it too.
I have never got pandurata to root in water while all my nils root in a few days in water. I can just forget
getting them to root in potting mix.

Pretty blooms Helena. I just had one or two this morning.

Hi Jackie,
I know haven't been around here... so many excuses that I have (one I was on crutches for a long time and ) didn't feel up to much of anything, including the internet..lol

Just wanted to ask how the seeds from Parks did for you and Helena, Becky? planted several fujis from the same batches and got 7 spokes on them. Hopefully you guys got some also.

Also, wanted to let you know that the Chocolate Mimosa trees I purchased finally made a couple of pods and I sowed all the seeds, out of about 50 seeds, 4 came out with chocolate leaves. The ratio is not great, but, the fact that some of the seeds will come out true made me very happy. The thing is that you have to sow a lot of seeds to get a couple of those chocolates... well worth it.

I just noticed a sentence on the page here where you may upload up to 5 images, that is a great new feature...or maybe it is old, but it is great and easier than before.

Well, the best to all of you and the glories, they look fantastic. The only ones I grew this year were fujis and heavenly blue which made stems the size of tree trunks.. and covered several of my brugs...

A, so glad you dropped in. We've missed your posts. :-) I didn't get to plant the sds from Parks
you shared, will try to do that. I am winter sowing so will dig that pkt out and start a few.
I;m glad the Fujis did well there in Az and the H.B.s, one of my favorites.
About 2 months or so A on the ability to load up to 5 pics in the same post.
A real time saver.
Sorry you were on crutches, hope everything is better now.
Your Choc Mimosa's sound wonderful. Mine only turned choc that one yr but it was a beauty.
I would have tried cuttings but I think the Mimosa is hard to propagate from a cutting.

Jackie, these mimosas are really stingy with seeds... I don't know why, I expected lots of seedpods, but only got about 6 from each tree and I've sowed all of them. I'll save seeds next year for you from mine if you want.

DH just got out of the hospital too... so much going on here... oh well, such is life.

me too, A I have lots of cool seeds this year from all over the place. I read up on that choc mimosa cuz I wanted one, and was told it is almost fertile.
I am glad you got some seeds from your tree. I have tons of baby mimosas here.. I love all the glorys posted here and am glad we are wintersowing. I did manage to keep mgs going that I brought in, some are in a cocacola bottle on the buffet, roots all everywhere and vining out and small blooms, the species I have going are also vining everywhere, so I am putting up the string leads to let them climb on.. I start all my seeds in the water bottle planter method, just havn't been able to get a pandurata or stictocardia cutting to root is all. one of the glorys I got a seed from a DG'r has never bllomed , but grows these huge leaves every where and roots in the air. I found a huge "tater" at the bottom of one of the main plants so am inclined to think it was an i batata type of vine more than the hederafolia it was supposed to be.
I feel blessed to have you all as friends. had a lovely display of the dark blue with white tips and stripes , growing by the south basement window well inside, will post pics later..
I managed to get some jasmine sambuc rooted and have two small plants, so excited to have some finally root and grow. Still have two caudex glories, think may be i lindeheimeri, or maybe pink moon vine.. but haven't seen them bloom. I am pretty sure I planted some other caudex glory seeds, but so tired I can't remember their names, lost the i plantesis.. we have not had rain now for a motnth, have to water my shrubs and trees and the prennials to keep them going. Supposed to get up to 80 tommorrow, only two things yet to bring in, but have to wait for killing frost on them to make them go dormant to do well next year, a fig tree and an oleander. They are huge. Just as my lobata started blooming it got down to 30 one night and that toasted them, same with the little yellow mg. still waiting on the obscura and the three types of woodroses to bloom, maybe later this winter?

Why are you on crutches, girl?
Joe has been on strike for a month, they are voting on new contract this saturday, hope it is worth a yes. What has happened to your hubby, A.?
These are from september 2012 4th pic is a caudex plant

Deborah, I will save seeds next year for you both, out of both trees (and I've had them for two years) they only gave a few seedpods each. The first year nadda... maybe the third will be a charm as they say.

Do either of you guys or anyone else for that matter want some Salmon Sunset 4 oclock seeds? I have a million seeds and they are gorgeous, fragrant and just beautiful. I also have them in pots and they did fantastic and I added lots of orange cosmos to the pots, they looked great. You can always move them into the ground or vise versa.

I also have quite a few red turk's cap seeds, a few pink turks caps seeds.. they are all germinating I've got at least 100 seedlings for the red turkscaps, they are only 1 or 2 inches tall, but,, it tells me that they are viable. I'm going to try those in several pots next year for the hummers. The rest of the seeds are really common but can send a some of each... I got lots of the regular blue carauela seeds if anyone wants those.

My yard was a jungle and still is, we expect a freeze this coming week. I cut down all my brugs this week.

A, yes please save me a few of the 4 o'clocks and turks cap. The hummers love both flowers
I love blue so wouldn't mind a few caruela sds. I'm trying to find blue pea vine right now for planting in the ground next yr, Clitoria ternatea, dbl blue one. I've not done any good growing it in a pot for some reason. I used to all the time, don't have a clue what I'm doing wrong. End result, I've wasted all my sds.

I'll try to find my Pandorea varieg lvs seeds to send you a few with some MG sds. :-)

Change out the soil completely and start new, don't use any pesticides, Bayer is the worst. It kills all the soil. I used to use it till I discovered my soils were useless after that.

I've got a couple of other passionvines that I hand pollenated/crosses but the fruits have all been empty so far. I'm not as good as the bees..lol

I soaked the turks cap's seeds in water, then I planted them up in clear drinking plastic cups, used some seran wrap, that self sticking one, and covered them up on the kitchen window sill. They have been doing great, only now I have way too many seedlings. The only ones that are not germinating at all are the variegated Turks Cap seeds. I don't know why, not a one. I was hoping that at least one would turn out with variegated leaves.

I'll send these seeds next week, but the Chocolate Mimosa next fall as I will not have any seeds till then. Give me a week to sort them out and pack.. I've got a few days to myself this coming week.

Hi guys,
Listen, I don't need anything back, I've got so many seeds already. Just postage if you guys get a chance, I'll put in at least 6-10 packs of seeds depending on your postage, I would think 2.00 should cover that. I've got padded envelopes.

I'll mail out when I receive postage and I've started sorting already. I will only commit to five people so

Jackie no. 1
Deborah no. 2
Dana no. 3


can take two more.

Helena, your blooms are very colorful, size does not matter when morning glories are concerned. I love them.
Basement is usually a dark ugly place. In Winter, Joanna and I are always down there all night long, her playing with her turtles and fish, me trimming, cutting, watering, and seed starting . It sure makes a usually boring winter much more enjoyable. I remember my first winter basement. A small area on the south end. Little did I know I would have a huge indoor greenhouse.. LOL
I have three huge round seed balls on this swan plant.. It won't stop flowering, i think it is confused.
I hope queen emma decides to bloom this winter
sticto, calico pipe vine, catsclaw vine and company here.. soon the ceiling wil be covered..
passions vines are to the left they are going everywhere, they would be outside, but these are tropicals that I have been growing since babies given to me by tropicman.
last pic is the setosa, the chalice vine and more..

Debra, I know those are hardy here. Is it the same as the lovely orange blooming milk weed. I know they come in yellow too and even pink now. A person could just spring plant them where they wanted it to come up???
If you think of it, you could send me a few. I have missed my orange one I had at my old house. I didn't
attempt to bring a start of it when we moved here. It was just too much moving at our age 10 yrs ago. :-)

gotcha, Ronnie. Jackie, I have several orange milkweeds and all kinds of milkweed seed pods here, I will get ya started on those things. I have no clue how long those seed balls will stay on that plant.. It is really tall and still producing flowers..If anything like my other milkweeds, it will be really fun to watch those seed balls pop open.

Debra, looking forward to the milkweed sds. I remembr how the butterflies would be all over the
blooms. Seems like it might have been the monarch b flies that favored those blooms.

Helena, love the way Jamie lynn has the blue cast to her blooms. She is a lovely MG.

seeds all the time.
Beautiful color on your Salvia.

Thanks Debra and Jackie. I have been trying to replace a few of the plants I used to have, abutilon is one of those. Also replacing a lot of salvias.

Ronnie salvia Van Houttei doesn't make seeds, propagating has to be by cuttings. There is one I think, called Dancing Flames that does but I'm not absolutely sure.

Love your beautiful blooms Jackie.

too cold for me! But somehow, we managed to get an old battery out ofmy sons car and a new one installed, and an airfilter put on my daughters car. Home from work at the atuo place and work on autos the rest of the afternoon... it was too funny. Now my son and I know why we take our cars to the dealor. LOL

Anyways..

I am happy to have my Hamelia patens sds up,(thanks to Helena), about 6 or 7 of em. I hope I don't kill the tiny seedlings.

Helena, I'm moving mine to my little utility/laundry room too. I have a little grow light tray in there and
the lights hang down closer to my seedlings. I'm worried that my seedlings will stretch for the light
in the bathroom. The light fixture is not close enough.
My grow rack is one of those cheap 15.00 Bakers Racks like the $ store used to carry. I just rigged up
the 10.00 grow lites from Wal-Mart to hang close to the shelves. Now the $ store
never has them. I have bought a slew of them over the yrs and I'm glad I did.

Jackie I got your package today, I promise to get your seeds sorted out when I have some time this week while watching tv with Joe. I sit and sort seeds cuz I don't like just sitting much. Helena and Ronnie and Karen, A>, well, all of you ...will get your christmas packages with some of my collections..

Here are some mgs..White with red specks ( remember the one I grew in 2011?) well, the seeds are still viable. Looks yellow in that room, tho.
blue butterfly clerodendrum decides to bloom..
hibiscus are still blooming..

No hurry on my sds Deb. Just take your time.

Helena, pretty blooms. That 1st Lav reminds me of my unknown nil blooming in the tub out back, looks just like it. Do you have a name on yours???I love the Abutilons and I have sds I need to test
I want to order the Voodoo Red and one of the yellows.

Pretty little transvaal
Pink Silk, not pretty but glad to have the bloom, still trying to pollinate by hand
A different color on these LYK blue bars this morning or at least the bars more pronounced
