Brugmansia 2014

by Van-Isle-Bamboo » 1 day ago in Pacific Northwest

I've posted here a couple times of my brugie that I keep potted up in this giant rolling planter. This thing this year is getting huge once again. The flowers seem to be a little earlier for me though. Usually it takes till the days are a bit shorter and the weather is cooler at night for it to trigger flowering. I'll have to post some more pics soon of the sangunia once or if I can get it to flower as well. The scent on this giant is amazing at night. How's everyone else's brugies doing this year?

This guy is starting some cool plants in zone 8 (Louisiana I believe).
Those big Colocasia look great.

Cheers, Barrie.

One of the best silk tree you can grow.

by Palmlover » 2 days ago in Pacific Northwest

This is one of the most colorful Silk trees out there. The name is Albizia julibrissin ‘fan silk flame’. This tree in my neighborhood is less than 10 years old.
Much more colorful than rosea even. If you see one and have room for it…grab it you won’t be disappointed. Makes a great shade tree.

Summer white

by Vlad Pomajzl » 3 days ago in Pacific Northwest

Poor pictures – my apologies – time for a new camera?

The first plant was sold to me as Myrtus communis variegata, but Ian reckoned it was more likely the South American Luma. I don’t care what it really is, it looks good and, so far, deer stayed clear of that one.

The next is a fragrant Trachelospermum jasminoides, Olearia nummularifolia, Olearia waikariensis and the last two pics are Olearia haastii (not fully opened yet). All deer proof so far. No pick of Olearia macrodonta, which decided to skip a year and bloom next year.

T.wag seeds (pure korean stock) help...Joe and others....

by CJW_Asia » 3 days ago in Pacific Northwest

I have got some seeds from Haeundae area, and the early start spring in Busan this year has resulting in mass fruiting of T.Wags. I noticed that the seed was falling off these palms, but the seeds themselves were still green (darkish green).

Any ideas if these will be viable? I need help from some experienced palm growers. :?

:idea: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?


You you want some I'll gladly send some up your way.

Got about 100 seeds of so.
