Re: Gene's greenhouse NOW Sycamore


I envy your ability to grow Asimina triloba, Cathy. It's one of the very few Annonaceae that will not grow here. Do you know University of Kentucky has a huge breeding program to make pawpaws commercially viable fresh fruit?

I have also planted Lindera benzoin in an attempt to attract the
Spicebush swallowtail, Asimina triloba in an attempt to attract the
Zebra swallowtail, and Aristolochia durior to attract the Pipevine
swallowtail, but haven't observed any of them yet.

A couple of years ago, I planted a "dill" plant from a box store;

Dill, too. They are all in the same family, but around here, dill is
the favorite, then fennel, then parsley. Have never seen them on my
carrots.

Plant parsley & fennel - they're host plants for the swallowtail
