Re: Re: Happy Birthday

I had no problem growing anemones in Maryland ( and yes, they were invasive), but here in the midwest... forget about it!! That does not keep me from trying, but that does not keep me from trying, though...

Happy Bday and thanks for posting! I have been meaning to for a while. I am looking for any ideas of how to get rid of anemone that is taking over my garden. I have dug, pulled, round-up (carefully with a paint brush bc other things are nearby), and I cannot kill it. In fact it seems to regrow from any tiny root that is left behind. Any suggestions? If I don't get
it out, it will I'm afraid take over my entire front garden...

Happy birthday Auralie!
I too am curious as to what happened to your diamond frost! I love that
little plant as a great filler in a pot!

Thanks, Zem. Chete took me to lunch at the Riverview Restaurant in
Cold
Spring which has a
stunning view of the Hudson Highlands and Storm King Mountain. It was
almost worth being 86 years old.

I will take advantage of this contact to ask a couple of GardenChat
type
questions.

The first is very simple. Why, here at beginning of August, are my
dogwoods
definitely showing
red leaves?  It has been somewhat dry this summer, but not a real
drought,
and only moderately
hot.

Next question is more complicated.
For several years I have bought a plant at the local Arboretum plant
sale to
grow in a pot on my
front stoop. This has been Euporbia 'Diamond Frost'. Do you know it?
It
is very delicate with
lacy growth, tiny leaves with dark markings, and small white star-like
flowers.  It makes a bushy
little plant about a foot wide and high. As I say, I have grown this
several years, getting a new
plant each spring. I have one this year. Usually the plant is about
done
by fall when I bring things
in, but last fall we had an early frost threat, and as the plant still
looked good, I brought it in and
put it under the lights where I start seed, and keep a few things over
the
winter.  It lost all its
leaves before long, but the stems still were green, so I left it there.
All
winter, it kept its green
look, so I let it stay, but finally when I started seeds and needed the
space this spring I set the
pot outside and thought no more about it. Then a week or so ago, I
happened
to notice the pot
that I had put in an obscure spot, and it was full of bright green
leaves.
The plant has leafed out
and is growing strongly, but instead of the tiny, lacy growth, the
leaves
are bright green and
more than twice a large as the original plant. I still have the plant
label
from that, and from the
one I bought this year, and they are the same. What has happened?
Side
by
side, the two
plants really don't look a bit alike. Why has this one changed from
last
year?

Thanks for listening to my rant,

Hope you are having a good summer.

Auralie
