I didn't want to leave behind some of the stuff we were talking about so I copied it below.

She made me want to move to California, and last week, my oldest daughter moved there. she had heard me talk about the flowers and the long growing season for years and years so I guess she's living my dream! She's up in Pleasant Hill outside San Fran and she has sent me some beautiful pictures. I'm hoping I get to go visit when the iris are blooming. I would love to see some of the hybridizers' growing fields.
The gal I'm thinking of had a garden goddes statue and another great photo of a really fat cat sitting next to a toad statue and I used that photo as my background pic for years.

****So Marian, if you're watching, can you tell us the name of the iris Landperson is asking about? ****

I haven't see Jain on any of the sites in a long time. She used to be on Gardenweb a lot and then she kind of disappeared. I've wondered different times what happened to her. I always loved the pics of her garden. That was quite the hillside she gardened on.

You're welcome.

Feel free to start a new thread, or tell me to anytime the old one gets too big. I don't always pay good attention.

I've been watching it, but haven't tested the waters yet. Do you recommend buying there?

I think you just need to check feedback on whoever the seller is. I've purchased from buggycrazy, Ramona (Mainiac), and Pollendauber there. Pollendauber sells hybridizing tools and supplies. My criteria is they have to have good feedback and take my check as well as instant buys!

Thanks for the ideas everyone. I have several colors of Astilbe Polly, but I've always planted them with hostas and brunerra etc in the shade. Never tried them in sun.
I am kind of in the north central part of MO. About 1 1/2 hrs southeast of KC. And yes, it gets hot here. Humidity was awful this summer. Winds aren't as bad as the ones in KS though.

Lily Auction is a great place, easy to use too. If you are new to daylilies, maybe ask about certain cultivars before you jump in, make sure they will do well in your area. Or buy from the northern sellers. I would probably not recommend evergreens for NY for instance.
Right now I have several on my Watch list and I recently made a Wanted list so I get an email when one of them gets listed.

Thanks Sue. I know not to get evergreen. Although actually I've never tried them, and they might do well in our odd climate. I will look for the northern sellers, though. Um, weren't you the one that said you were getting away from daylilies, LOL.

Cathy, I think you may be a similar zone to ours. I just started growing astilbe in sun a few years ago. Once it gets established it does fine. The first year it looks a little burnt, those roots need to go deep to get the water. But try one or so. And the siberians and Jis will do well in part shade.

I never got out of daylilies, just ran out of room and am not as obsessed as I was when I first started. Now that I am moving, I should have more room so will be picking up a few more. Bought some off the Lily Auction just in the past couple of weeks and went to our local daylily club meeting & auction this past Sat. and got a few more.
My yard looks like a nursery right now with pots of daylilies, roses, iris and other perennials getting ready for the move, crazy!
