Garden log, 5.12.16

Went out in the backyard with the dog this morning intending to pull weeds for 10 minutes. Camellia ‘Midnight Lover’ had a terrible case of leaf hall, so I pruned those out. While I was at it, I struck 12 cuttings of Camellia ‘Nuccio’s Cameo.’ I haven’t had much luck in the past growing camellias from cuttings, but I keep trying.

Louisiana iris ‘Black Gamecock’ is in bloom in the rain garden and looking rather spectacular.

  1. My Midnight Lover had a very bad case of camellia leaf gall as well. I have quite a few sasanquas, and while one or two others had just a bit of it, ML was by far the worst. I wonder if it is more susceptible than other sasanquas?
