    May be the largest Doris anywhere. Steady but not a fast cultivar here. Gotta love all that orange. Smug

    Looking good Jerry. Glad you like it. My largest is in a pot. Of course it was always layered but not lately. I'll post a pic. Looks a lot like yours. Thanks

    P1040301a.jpg P1040306a.jpg Here's a picture of mine with a couple more seedlings basically the same size. About a year ago a I had my pump loose prime while I was gone and the plants went without water for about a week. Several of my plants suffered, Doris was one of them. Lost about half its leaves and is now making a comeback. My water leaves a haze on my plants and they don't show as well as I'd like.

    One of those air layers you took to the "silent auction at Jeff's...remember? It's very happy down here.

    I really like that oak leaf seedling.

    Yeah, I remember when you got it. That oak leaf is one of my major breeders now. I think it's a cross between sybil griffin and irene kingsley. Leaves get quite large and I love the shape when it's well grown. Here's an older picture next to arthur howe and another seedling. P1000143a.jpg

    Chris' Doris recovered quite well, saw it last week. Walking by the Doris in Moose Land today, I thought Doris deserved to get her photo taken. She seems to be relishing the fall weather.
