    Dahlia tenuicaulis (everblooming tree Dahlia) 2 feet (3 cuttings): Giveaway

    I basically just cut my sister's Dahlia tenuicaulis to the ground. It needed a little (or a lot) of pruning and rejuvenation. This is a moderately fragrant, magenta-flowered plant, which tends to be bushier than Dahlia imperialis. It also tends to bloom more year round, instead of just...

    Mounted Orchids for Trade: Brassocattleya and Encyclia

    I have seen some orchid interest in the past here at TF, so I thought I would post up some other surplus plants I have.

    This one will never win a beauty contest .......

    Orchids, by and large, are coveted by many for their exotic beauty. However, not all are so graced. Not exactly a “pretty face” – many folks find the flowers of Coryanthes to be rather grotesque or even obscene in appearance. Still, I find members of this genus to be fascinating in design and...
