I've seen a black one sold as Roy's Black... not sure if these are the same. This one doesn't get much sun.

Bill let me know if you would be interested in swapping a cutting for "Floppy" We have over 70 varieties of ti but we don't have that one yet. :)

I'm really liking the tis in the garden. They are strong rooters, dont require a lot of water, and do good in full sun. I also like that they get above the height of rabbits, something that a lot of other colorful companion plants dont do and therefore prevents me from using them

Probably easy for you, but hard for me - keeping the leaves on in winter. Many types I have tried just drop leaves. But then some do great. Kind of like Crotons, just need to try them all and see what works.

The issue is snails. Especially in a wet winter.

Joe, I think you are on to something with lava rock as I would guess snails are not a fan. As far as Ti's, it really depends on what you try. I can't get the cool white/pinks or rainbowed colored Ti's to grow well. Even Purple Prince and Willys Gold gives me trouble.

I find that I have to give those colourful one a bit of shade... so I usually plant them in morning sun. A bit like broms really... sometimes it can be tricky to place. Once they are happy, they should grow well for you. Maybe just move them around in pots before you plant them and see how they go?

I'm sure you have more experience with Tis than me Len. I'm just getting started with these, but the few that I have tried all perform with flying colors. My "kiwi", the rainbow colored white, green, pink hasn't been through a winter yet though. David Bain, Hollywood Palms has many many different types of tis and his garden has inspired me to try as many as I can. He said the kiwi types need full sun, which is opposite of what I would have expected because of all the white on them.

As far as snails go, I have 2 different types: the standard garden snail that we all have, and then I have a native canyon snail which is very large, has a shell that looks just like a regular snail, but their flesh is black. They don't need moisture year round, they just form a seal on their shell and wait it out in the canyon waiting for the rainy season. I have a lot of them, but I also have a lot of skunks and the skunks just shmorgusborg on these things and really keep them in check. Also, sometimes neighborhood chickens wander into the yard and they will eat every single snail, then I will eat them, so really I'm eating my own snails. What were we talking about again?

I don't know but I think you called me a chicken.

I doubt you will have issues as you grow much harder stuff. Most the ones sold around gardens here do fine. The cool online ones are the ones that gave me trouble. Ti plants. Not chickens.

About the chickens, that is a damn good idea. I wonder of you can rent chickens?

Thanks! I didn't really take note of when I germinated those particular ones... but the first ti I grew from seed took three years to reach a height of five feet. I'm guestimating that those in the photos are about two years old.
