Amazing, Tindo, as always. I remember you posting your Rhodies awhile back! I recognize many of the wildflowers but, none of the first batch of Rhodies grows here. WW and I just ordered the Geum (Prairie Smoke) in my case to try again.

Hi Tindomul. It’s the vireyas that interest me. I am wanting to grow a few of these too. I’ve heard they mostly get very leggy and unattractive after a few years. Do you find that to be true?

Hi, I'm glad you all like. I'll search for some more stuff for later.

The flame azalea as I understand it is a more southern species. The thing about NYC is that it is often the Southern Most extent of many northern species of all kinds, and the Northern most extent of southern species of all kinds.

The Vireyas do have a tendency to get leggy, but it takes years and years. Also, in that time, the best thing to do is to prune new growths when you see it is only producing a single growth at each node. By doing that it will grow two or more branches at each node giving you a nice miniature tree like appearance. Also, I never had space for big Vireyas, so I always purchased those with small leaves (1-2 inches or so) and these are much more well behaved. My favourite, which I have all but lost due to Covid, was Alisa Nicole (pictured in my previous post). I grew it completely epiphytically and after 8 years it was really bushy but only 10 inches tall, and had gotten to a point where it was freely flowering. I managed to save one small cutting, but it has been 6 months and have not managed to get a root to grow. They are notorious for taking months and months to root from cuttings. Patience, patience.

OMGosh! That is fantastic!!!! I love planting natives. Over the years, even though I don't have a personal garden, I managed to convince my building's board to allow me to plant some stuff in the garden. I have sneaked in Jacob's ladder, Jack-in-the Pulpits, Columbines, Trilliums, native bleeding hearts, and Cohosh. I get such a rush from seeing native woodland flowers in the middle of Queens NY.

Mediterranean, Rocky dry soil (Arizona style) weather. To tell you the trust, I've never notice them well until a few weeks ago. I am not into succulents, but I saw it with that huge yellow flower in a sunny cold day and it was beautiful.
