|Rolling right along...
|Rosa gallica versicolor |
|Very nice Gillian! |
I'll start off with the lilies.
|Very nice Gil and Laurie! |
|i_heart_flowers, are you sure your rose is Prairie Joy? It looks like Distant Drums?|
|I agree, Prairie Joy should be just pink. Very pretty anyway! :)|
|Well now, its funny you both should ask that as I was looking at some other posts and noticed a similar looking flower but with different names. I even went and checked the tag that came with it (from Vesseys) and it clearly says, Prairie Joy. Oddly enough, when the buds formed they were red, when it first opened it was a dark pink and then looked like the above picture a few days later. I'll post the different stages when I get home tonight. I expected a pink as well. It was just put in last summer and it had quite a few flowers - one late into October. |
What do you think? Did I receive yet another plant tagged incorrectly?? Hard to complain cause it is rather pretty but now I'm worried it will be a lot bigger then I wanted :/ .....sigh!
| I'm sure you got a mislabeled rose. Email Veseys and tell them your FN gardening buds told you that you got the wrong rose and that you didn't realize it at bloom time. Veseys guarantees that you are completely satisfied. Email the photo along with your order confimation and see what they have to say. |
Although its pretty, its NOT what your ordered.

Of the 25 R lilies I have...here are the ones that have bloomed in the yard but have not been posted yet...

Red Torch lily
Red Velvet is a downfacing lily that is very hard to get a proper picture of...
Robinson's Comet lily
Red Cloak Pasque Flower...love the red color of this one.

Red Gem linifolia tulip
Royal Candles Veronica
Rooting slips of plants on the window ledge... (notice the bear skull in the bottom left corner?)
I could show you pictures of the 'Renovations' we have done to the house and yard but I wouldn't know where to start...windows, deck, siding, insulation, basement floor, basement walls, basement ceiling, stairs, kitchen, living room walls, sunroom, furnace, water cistern, etc, etc. Plumbing, electrical, you name it. It is a totally different house (except for the pukey-pink colored bathroom and a few other things that are still original in color).
I also realized that I have never taken a picture of our raspberry patches or the rhubarb plants. This summer....
|Lovely "R"s everyone :-) |
Rose - Polareis..new last spring
Rose - William Baffin..2nd year and bloomed wonderfully
Red Pixie Lily
|Hey Sharon, thanks for the advice! I heard from Veseys yesterday and they agree that I received the wrong rose. They've put a credit through for me. They figured it was a Kaleidoscope...what do you think? (of course I'm going to go with the opinion of the forum!!) |
Man, FN buds are the best...always looking out for each other : ) I would have just left it thinking, well, I did get a rose....
..oh boy, more ordering to do!
|Yup, it's probably Kaleidoscope Rose since they carry it in stock. Good to hear you got a credit. If a company is going to advertize a plant in a catalogue it better well be the correct plant they send then. Veseys is pretty good most times for making their customers happy. |
Savona, I'm glad I ordered Polareis last year, hope to see it bloom this year ;)
