Stuck it back in the ground and gave it another dose of water. Hope that doesn't invite even more excavation!
I have been rather remiss in the "diary" aspects of my blog. So I came up with some categories to include, when appropriate, with each post (really more as notes to myself than anything):
- Planted in Ground - recent yard plantings
- Planted in Pots - recent pot plantings
- Experiments - things I'm trying
- Gotta Get - additions to my list of desired plants
Planted in Ground:
- Four Ground Orchids (one of them twice - grumble, grumble)
- Manfreda 'Chocolate Chips' (Manfreda undulata 'Chocolate Chips')
- Dyckia platyphylla
- Ground Orchid (so I can make sure to keep at least one alive over the winter)
- Wandering Jew (Tradescantia zebrina) into hanging pot; interesting story goes with plant (perhaps on a later blog)
- Small-leafed version of English Ivy (variety of Hedera helix) into hanging pot (actually part of a three plant gift "bucket" received by my wife) - anyone have any hints regarding variety based on that minuscule description?
- Unknown variety of Coleus - a pass-along from Robin at Getting Grounded; thanks!
- Ric Rac Orchid Cactus (Selenicereus anthonyanus) - gift from green-thumbed mother-in-law; thanks MommaSam!
- Oakleaf Hydrangea 'Alice' (Hydrangea quercifolia 'Alice') - hope to eventually place into ground, but figured I'd better wait until fall
- Root Beer Plant (Piper auritum) - pass-along plant from Philip at East Side Patch; thanks! (Still a little fearful to let it loose directly into the ground, plus I can water it more when potted)
- Two Gold Dust Aucuba (Aucuba japonica 'Variegata') - hope to eventually place into ground; waiting for fall
- Red-leafed Dyckia (Dyckia 'Red Devil') into the Bitter Tree Aloe (Aloe ferox) pot; it was looking lonely
- Growing Bronze Dyckia (Dyckia fosteriana) from gathered seeds
- Attempting to root Oak-Leaf Hydrangea cuttings
- Attempting to root Abutilon 'Marilyn's Choice' cuttings
- Growing Gulf Coast Penstemon (Penstemon tenuis) from seeds (pass-along seeds from Robin at Getting Grounded; thanks yet again
- Mahonia 'Soft Caress' (Mahonia eurybracteata 'Soft Caress') - discovered them at Red Barn but the price was a bit more than I wanted to spend
- Vriesea malzinei - when I saw the words "shady" and "dappled sunlight" in GrowerJim's description on the Garden Adventures blog, it was going on my list (the pictures certainly helped too!). A little worried about temperature; perhaps in a pot.
