I put these plants in last year. I am thrilled that they overwintered and are starting to bloom.
Congratulations!! I have been thinking of getting one just to see if it would make it.
They are nice,
look like planipetalum at the moment
Adorable additions to your garden Joanne!
We tried these a few years ago.
Expensive, and ours were suicidal.
Nice, which ones are those?
Parviflorum? Parviflorum var pubescens?
The ones in bud/bloom came from Monica; the ones on the right came from Garden Slippers.
Definitely parviflorum variety of some type, likely pubescens. Keep planting them, you are in a great place to grow Cyps.
Very nice. Soon everyone should have them in the garden!
I find cyps grow fine in yards planted in pots of non-organic media!
Nice! What kind of ground do you have them planted in? Loose? Well-drained?
Great!!!!!!! Keep us updated!!!!
Seems to me I added some horticultural sand and perlite to enhance drainage and that's about it. My yard is only 7 years old and I put in very nice garden loam back then; I was actually worried it might be too good...we shall see...
Blooms are open now...
Will you expand your collection?
Yeah probably. I see Shawn of Garden Slippers at our Society meetings all the time, and it's hard to resist the hybrids he has...I did try Maria in 2009, but I got it in October, put it in the ground and then we had a really hard sudden freeze that year in mid-October and I never saw her again.
I'll probably wait on more year to start adding more Cyps though as I'm changing up the area where I've got them planted now.
