PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I started a batch of seeds for NARGS 4 years ago and finally one of them has bloomed.
(I planted three in the garden 2 yrs but there's no sign of them yet. This is the only one
that survived a flood of my greenhouse 1.5 yrs ago).
I have it in my garden, received it in a plant trade. It produces the nice foliage but no flowers yet. I was told it makes more pronounced leaf variegation in the sun so that was where I planted it...will it flower up more readily in a more shady area?
Joseph - I had the one in the pot in a "shadey" area in my greenhouse
(which is really quite bright - just under a 30% shade cloth.) I have two
outside, both in a shadier area. One bloomed & one did not this year.
Neither bloomed last year. I'm no expert so this is just my limited experience.
