Blue Blizzard from last Fall
Morning Glories Spring 2012 # 01
Those are nice Helena. I have some up by the fence but they're purpureas. I don't want Milky Way coming up
taking over my pandy area, so I've been out there pulling up those seedlings. They are tiny so they come right up.
My beautiful higes are back up from fallen sds too. Can't wait for those to bloom but it's going to be a while.
I;m going to plant those big tubs I had going last season too.
Turbinata last summer
Thanks Jackie. That's a pretty bloom and picture from yours last year.
I'm surprised by my pandy which is taking off big time. I know the blooms are going to be nice this year.
Helena, I knew you would love the pandy, nothing else quite like it.
The larger it gets the longer it blooms. Mine bloomed 3 months last yr I have 15 pandy stems up and growing
and buds forming as it makes its way along.the fence :-)
Pretty bloom Jackie, I think I have the red one somewhere in the garden.
Thanks Helena. I tried to grow the one they call the garden Amaryllis, a red, but it just froze so next time I'll keep it in a pot.
Pretty blooms Helena. Nice to see a Purple Fuji. Is your white bloom Full Moon, looks like some yellow in the bloom, really nice.
Look at all the beauty (and the flowers are nice, too)!
I thought I'd move some of the MG seedlings away from the keyboard so I could type in a "hello". ;-)
Helena, very pretty blooms. It will be June before I get any blooms on my vines in pots. I think my Pandy
will bloom long before that.
Adding my hellos & thankyous to everyone and their flowers, too. Nick, no tidy garden could match the beauty of your wild patch of C. mauritanicus - could you put that one in PlantFiles? It's beautiful.
Nick, very inpressive wild stand of C. mauritanicus.
Thanks, you two...
Karen, I was thinking about adding this photo to the PlantFiles – I think it better illustrates the real estate being encompassed (although I'd have to get up on a ladder to photograph its entirety). What do you think?
edited to add: I know I should be outside right now pulling the grassy weeds out of that patch, but I fear if I plop down on the ground I might not want/be able to get back up (not really... my body isn't that sore today... so far).

Beautiful blooms Helena. I love the Purple Speckled MG.
and the Strawberry Sage, a common name around here.
Thanks for letting me know its true name. :-)
Thanks Jackie. The speckled is Fujishibori that I had cleaned the seed with alcohol and wanted to see if it would germinate. Glad it turned to be a dark one. The salvia is from Mexico, got it through mail order. Hope you can take a picture of the salvia you see blooming there. I also have red salvias coccinea, salvia regla and roemeriana. Robin M. has a wonderful salvia site that you can check out at www.robinssalvias.com I love salvias and grew them long before I got hooked on mgs.
From todays blooms
Helena, thanks for that link. I love Salvias too. I think I still have my Strawberry Sage will look for it soon.
Love your new blooms this morning, both very pretty,
I planted a transvaal, Its sprouted and I'm excited to
grow this one again. I like its pretty shaped leaves as well as the blooms.
A pic of transvaal's cotyledons. I'll send a pic of its true leaves when they develop
In the above pic, the 1st 2 vines bottom left are both Blue Tie Dye. One has varieg cotyledons and the other one has plain green ones. Should be interesting to see how these 2 turn out..
They look good Jackie. I'll be looking forward to your blooms too. Wow, it got windy and very cool here and they say it'll get to the 40's next week but for here I bet around the 50's probably.
From Azuremore a very dark bloom and the redish stripes. I'll have to wait for warmer weather for better blooms.
Thanks Helena. I'm so glad you're already getting blooms. Beautiful colors on your mg's this morning.
We have the cool temps too and have had for several days now. Cool 45 nightime temps and 65-75 during the day.
The 80's will be back next week some time and I'll be planting outside mg sds I hope
Hope my Prettiest Saz sd is sprouted, :-) This one from 2010
Nice bloom Jackie. Thanks too. I hope I get some nice Saz blooms too. I didn't get any blooms yesterday and today a very chilly morning they didn't want to open till it warmed up a bit. I hope I'll have nicer bigger blooms when it warms up, now they are rather snall.
I liked the color of the first one, a velvety look (better looking than in the picture) and next a pink blizzard.
Love your blooms Helena. The 1st blooms velvety look is caused by the over saturation of color, very

Thanks Jackie, the blooms opened up a little more later and still open now. Late afternoon I get to see if any buds are going to open for tomorrow.
Love your Pink Rayed Blizz Helena. Nice pink bloom on that 2nd pic. Do you have a name on that one?
Pretty delicate pink color on the last one, Pink Porcelain??
Lots of beauties, Helena!
I particularly like that middle flower in your last post... split-corolla and nicely edged — subtle yet elegant!
Thank you Nick and Jackie. I am being surprised by these blooms too. Jackie, yes that is Pink Porcelain and the other one is from Azuremore with no ID just description of blue with pink center which turned to be a cross with stripes.
I had to grow Blushing Bride again this year. Karens2005 Extra Mix Speckled blooms, vine #1 & #2.
Oh my gosh, your Blushing Bride is drop dead gorgeous. I've got to dig out my sds, one can always hope that they get such a bloom. :-) The speckled mix isn't bad either.
