A favorite in our garden, Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm', blooms abundantly in mid-summer into fall along with Echinacea. It's native to the eastern USA but does surprisingly well in full sun during our very dry summers in the West. Winter hardy in USDA zones 3 through 9, it spreads slowly by rhizomes to form clumps. ... See MoreSee Less

Kathryn and DavidLouis Desena this plant gets a bacterial disease that causes black spots on the leaves. Spraying copper on the foliage helps control it.

Found this gorgeous 6 foot tall Lily in a public park in our town. It's a Martagon type, or Turk' s cap, sometimes called a tiger Lily and probably a hybrid of Lilium superbum. These are winter hardy in USDA zones 5 through 8. ... See MoreSee Less

Charlotte Pritchardwww.vanengelen.com/about.html. Check out the antique lilies section. I love the Scheepers and Van Engelin catalogs, and their bulbs are first rate. Scheepers is the retail end of the business; Van Engelin is the wholesale side, but the mixtures give a home-gardener real value.

Charlotte PritchardI gave away more than 60 grown from bulbils last fall. I've never seen a plant more eager to replicate itself. Just love them.

If your medical cannabis plants, or any other garden plants, fail to thrive and tend to wilt it may be due to any one of several causes. One possibility is to look in the soil or potting medium for a creature like this. It's not a caterpillar, it's a beetle grub and it's eating the roots of your plants. Beneficial nematodes or milky spore are both good organic biological controls that we discuss in our new book What's Wrong With My Marijuana Plant. ... See MoreSee Less

Found this Hydrangea macrophylla in a public park in our town. It might be 'Lady in Red' but don't know the cultivar for certain. These are big, spectacular plants, winter hardy in USDA zones 6 through 9. Anyone have any other guesses on the name of this cultivar? ... See MoreSee Less

Anne SickingerI've got Lady in Red and it's not so dark of a red. Could just be my soil or amount of sun. But the stems are red for sure!

Jim BlackWe've seen many spectacular specimens in pink, purple, and blue in Scottish gardens this month. The climate seems to be perfect for hydrangea and begonia.
