Breaking the Rules

Viola in Garnet and Gold

I initially intended to show photos from the book in the sequence that the photos appear in the book. But I broke that rule when I went to the pansy photo. And as you can tell some of the other photos are already out of sequence with the previous comments. c’est l vi ! I am learning to use the blog software so please be tolerant as I hope the photos are dazzling. I had to struggle to get the wet quince photo into the blog in a size that was not a postage stamp.That said, in addition to breaking the sequence rule I think it will be fun for the readers particularly those in zones higher than 8 to see what is going on in North Florida. Hence the pansies below and the viola above and if I master this, then some more violas and Johnny Jump Ups will follow!

RED DOGWOOD

The Red Dogwood, Cornus florida ‘Cherokee Chief’ is a bit tempermental in my area which is good for mostly Zone 8 though we are close to Zone 9. It does not grow as fast or as well as the native plant or some of the white hybrids. I keep it heavily mulched and feed it azalea-camillia fertilizer twice a year. It is near a high pine over-story so that it gets light in the morning and a good portion of the day. I am quite fond of this as it has taken several plants to find the optimal location in my yard.It has been well worth it!!!red-dogwood-for-dedication-page-crop-bbb-img_4136.jpg

Camelia japonica variegated hybrid

The second picture to appear in my new book is of Camelia japonica Edna Bass which has just been watered. I keep my camelia garden well mulched with pine straw and bark . The garden is beneath a high pine over-story. I fertilize with azalea-camelia fertilizer twice a year . I water if it has been dry and frequently during the blooming season. (My season is long as I have enough plants to have early to late bloomers or about 4 months or more of blossoms). C. sinensis is the plant that tea comes from.
