Jasmine blooms in Summer


#584

Annie,
Thanks to you. I feed my jasmine plants a lot more fertilizer for blooms. It starts blooming now.


#585

For some reason all my Arabian Jasmines didn’t do well this year. Lack of vigorous growth, leafs color distortions and small, not much blooming. I think they either lack of some minerals, or soil ph is too high.


#586

Mine, too. Definitely nutrient deficiency judging from some discoloration of leaves. I started using 20-6-20. It seems to work.


#587

I found this walking around my property. It showed up facing south where I had cut trees. It’s a semi-sloping, hillside with heavy clay. I thought wow maybe that’s a salvia but nope.

Thank’s! We like poted plants/flowers… we love orchids! :+1:

From my garden I picked some basils- cinnamon, lemon, and sweet Italian. Added a few snapdragons, calendula, zinnia, bells of Ireland, and forget-me-not.

I have let moss roses reseed every year in my vegetable garden. The red is so vibrant, I can see them blooming from my kitchen windows.
These are growing alongside the celeriac.

We call that plant Portulaca, because there is a true rose that is also called a moss rose. :slight_smile:


#593

I also thought that was a Moss rose, one of several types of roses.

I love the flower with herb arrangement. That is pretty and creative.


#594

Yes, it is Portulaca grandiflora. Commonly called moss rose. This is why we should use Latin names I suppose, to avoid confusion over common names!
My apologies!
I looked up the rose, called Moss Rose. I found a Lady Moss, Very beautiful! Is that the Rose you were referring to?

@mamuang- thanks! I almost didn’t plant the cinnamon basil. It was free seed with my Bakers Creek order last year. I liked it just for its scent and looks so I planted more this year. I don’t think it has a culinary use for me. I like to inter-plant the basils among my tomatoes.


#595

Moss rose is a type of old garden roses.
