    Yugoslav Hibiscus or Cedar Cup Malvacaea:

    Plants grow to a height of 6 to 8 feet (8 ft = 2.44 m) tall and are upright growing with good sized white to light pink flowers that remind one of hollyhocks. The petals are fringed and the centers of the flowers are made up of yellow stamens surrounding the style and showing between the five petals are the green sepals. The flowers are born from the leaf axis and are singly produced or sometimes in two's or three's. The leaves are large and palmate in shape with three to five sharp pointed lobes and have coarse toothed edges (They remind me some what of Grape leaves). Blooming in July and August. Best in deep soils that are moist but well drained and poor in nitrogen. Part sun to full sun (in shallow soils into much sun plants will wilt). This species is native from Yugoslavia. In some locations may be short lived (were soil is too rich) but mostly perennials were they will self seed if soil conditions are suitable for the small plants. Grows into large clumps with a deep large rootstock and is best for large gardens and parks or used as a dramatic large specimen.

    Zones (3) 5-8

    Sow and keep for 6 months at 39F (39 F = 3.9 C) (refrigerator) or winter out side, move to 65-75 F (75 F = 23.9 C) for germination. Will bloom the first year from an early sowing. Pricking the seeds with a sharp pin will cause germination in two to three weeks allowing one to forgo the cold period. Another way to start the seeds, is to place seal them up in a plastic baggy with some moist paper towel and keep in the fridge, check the seeds every week or so and sow those that germinate in the fridge. Germination starts in about 2 months and can be spread-out over 6 more months.

                    Red Hot poker or 'Torch lily' Asphodelaceae:

                    First year flowering selection in a mix of bright colors. The red, orange or yellow colored flowers are in crowded head-like spikes atop 32-inch (32 in = 81.3 cm) tall stems. Do not grow the plants too wet or too dry. Dry soils cause the flowers to dry up and wet soils quickly produce rotting roots. In summer Kniphofolia plants need water and should not be grown dry for best flowering. While dormant plants should be on the dry side. Plants are not tolerant of competition and do not handle being shaded by other plants. Grow in full sun, nice as a cut flower- best harvested as the first few rows of flowers open.
