#1632925 Is this a Galapagoense

Posted by wiriwiri on 19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM

Thanks Dan.
I  want to say  that one seller who is a member here & has offered Galalagoense seeds for sale  in the recent past.

Semillas La Palma...he is found in the vendor section also.

he is top notch & his seeds are genuine is ,based out of Spain...prices very reasonable,email  & ask

he may have seeds yet...doesn't hurt to ask...has other wilds on his web site..that being said...

there here are 2 kinds of wild galap seeds for sale one is what I call regular ..stemsgalapag_stem4sdgjk4.jpg not furry....& peppers are not  round..

I grew it 2 yrs ago ..if I recall it's <an inch..or so...wonder if that's what the member has growing?

Wiriwiri.....you see this?

I have no idea, but she if familiar with those I think.


Hello..doesn't look like one ..stems are VERY hairy  which is one of it's main characteristics,here's a few of my

plants from last yr.One piece of  advise "be wary of people who sell hard to get wilds on Ebay"gchkavT.jpgWRk1HA8.jpgmTL9d96.jpg

We're all experiencing these growing pains most all weather related here on the East Coast.

I haven't put my plants in the ground as I wait till ~Memorial Day ..give or take a few days..

Rain by 3pm today & more nite time temps in the low 40's..for most of this week.

I see Western Mass. had snow yesterday in some parts..


Nothin' to do but wait...as of now, Friday onward looks a lot better temp/sun-wise.


Say a :pray:.... ..it will be betta..'cause it can't get worse  .. ;)

All plants look healthy & growing nicely...weather is cooperating your way..here raining & 40's...seems like March

temps has returned here in NE...or rather left briefly only to make a U turn.

My take:.if it's just one or a few  plants that you can have at your friends place I would pick those you value the most   and  want to

prevent crossing at all cost..I looked to see if you had any wilds ;) on your list a that would be my pick,didn't see any.Also those you 

are growing that might be hard to get seeds of if any crossing were to occur.

Thanks CD..yes that is a nice shrub wish it bloomed for a longer time..gets real leafy/ a haircut  is due come June.Had more gardens but

it was hard to upkeep  d/t work schedule etc..I like unusual plants/shrubs etc...Everyone around here has Forsythia ..so common..

It's annoying  to my eyes...it should be banned IMO. :rolleyes:

CERCIS CANANENIS COVEY;A stunning accent shrub with gracefully arching and weeping branches,

a twisted trunk and very showy pink to purple flowers held tightly on bare branches in early spring,

curious heart-shaped leaves; an incredible garden accent, especially when in bloom..too bad the flowers

only last ~10 days...really weepy cool shrub.~5ft tall.

Hey John..nice Woodies there...I should see if I can post my photos ..Imgur not cooperating.

I have some Jacks...now poking through the soil..some with green & some purple stems..

also we had some variegated  Solomon Seals.around & some with green stems but I have to check sometimes they get in

the way..& disappear ..have Bleeding Hearts pink/white...& we had the invasive white Lily of the valley..pulled those out.

I planted the pink variety but the moles/voles did away with those...I see one or 2 most gone ..those are not invasive IMO.

Lots of ferns growing wild...will have to get those photos up.

Woodies are nice in the Spring. ;)

All good things must come to an end...it's gonna sit there till the undertaker comes..my husband said he could fix the brake system

but then something else will go..he's right...BTW many of those FORD  panther types were made in Windsor./St. Thomas ONT.

not far from you. ;) ..we love them..had a few other Vics that we bought @auction..we had our system down pat for the auction

It was fun...never bid till the end let all the idiots bid against themselves then swoon in @ the end & get the prize.. :P

WE don't buy new cars...waste of $$$.Ford stopped making them in 2011...the last Mercury Marquis/CV & Lincoln Town cars

rolled out of St.THOMAS Ca.in 2011 & then closed shop...Now collector's item.,workhorses for sure..rear _wheel drive cars

are hard to come by...great cars..not the match boxes that we have around now,hard to get your hands in there to work..send

them to the shop...yeah right. :rolleyes:


Your plants are looking great...now to get them in the ground..Happy Growing. :P

You're right that does look like an African V...it needs to go outside but weather prevents..but our well is tapped off & then some,

..so looking on the bright side..sooo the sun will come out tomorrow,seriously. :shh:

I was going to post some of my Woodland plants but for some reason it was taking forever to load on IMGUR..

Hope your plants are coming along nicely.
