Re: Yahoo! Photos: tchessie's photo(s)/callas


Why didn't I think of that? There is also Hibiscus coccineus - flowers are not quite typical hibiscus in shape and bright red, but you'll have to explain to your neighbors that it is not marijuana when they see the leaves.

I'm sure it is a drainage problem, but what is the difference between wet
and poor drainage? And any other plant suggestions would be appreciated.
This spot used to have pea gravel covering the whole thing (now I think I
know why!) There is a concrete mow strip around it and I have run into some
rock/concrete chunks buried in it too (these have been unremovable due to
size and proximity to the sidewalk and a brick raised bed. So.... still
need a plan. None of the "cheap" nurseries in the area had japanese iris-
so I will hunk more tomorrow. There used to be an Iris grower around here-=
not sure if they still exist though.

surprised they don't like the wet area. the natives in florida are called
"swamp lilies" because that's where they grow. somewhere i've got pictures
of them growing among lotus in a retention pond. maybe it's a drainage
problem rather than a wet problem.

Well, I'm going to the grocery store now, so we'll see if they are still

else. But I don't have the cash right now to put in more windsor wall
blocks to hold the soil from running right off the slope of the yard into
the street. I bought 2 5-gallon sized oregon grapes this AM- they were


only


$11 each. I'm trying to find some iris to try in my wet area out front.
The yellow callas clearly hate it there- in fact they are rotting. So on


to


plan B.

Oh, and I clearly am guilty of color scrutiny-  I have yanked out


everything


pink that was next to the house out front (they were all given away, well
except the crepe myrtle tree that I did give away, but it died anyway)-
clashed horribly with the color brick. Orange should be fine though- since
my America rose looks great with the brick.

Re> vivid orange ones now!

Ah!, The long-coveted Ornithogalum dubium! Years ago, Van Bourgondien
showed it in their catalogue as hardy to Zone 3. Couldn't believe it.
Called and they said "no, that's a misprint." I woner how many suckers
jumped on that one. FIND a plance for it, Theresa. Nature doesn't
scrutinize the color wheel, why should you?

Thanks- I should have taken a picture with my hand near it so you could


tell


how large it is. It really is much different than a star of bethleham,


sort


of like comparing a dandelion to a dahlia.
I noticed that the grocery store where my husband got this last year had
vivid orange ones now! I don't really have a place for an orange one,


but


if I ever see a yellow one, I'm buying it!

Theresa,
Great pics. The ol' Star of Bethlehem has sort of given Ornithogalums a
bad rap (tend to be invasive) But this is a real beauty! I'll try to
remember to post a pic of O. magnum when it blooms this year.
