Re: Newbie(ish) question

FWIW, I've always preferred matte leaves with a little texture to glossy leaves. Shiny reminds somehow of plastic, which is an association I don't really want when it comes to plants. Regarding leaf color, like others here I tend to prefer medium green to dark green. I prefer light green to bronze n...

Re: Darlow's enigma

I've grown Darlow's Enigma for a few seasons now and it is about as healthy as it gets here in Southern California, growing in partial shade. I don't know R. multiflora except from pictures, so I can't offer much in the way of comparison. The below link intrigued me in terms of its ability to genera...

Re: Source for Joycie (Moore)

@ Don: I had reached out to Burling prior to the OP, hoping that she would have stock, but she said she had none. I followed up with her today to see if she knows of any other sources. Thank you for the suggestion. @Kim: That's a very nice offer of you. Coincidentally, I have been looking at Basye's...
