Wow! Reminds me of Berkeley in the '60's. I'm just getting interested in this genus.
WOW! How are you growing this one, Tom?
I grow it(on mount) outside now warm and shady(bright shade) but much cooler during the winter months.
Tom, how tall is it? And how big are the flowers? Do you grow other of this genus mounted?
Marni, my T. smithii is about 16" tall. I have had it for two years now and It loooks like it is going to grow like vine... The flower is about 1.25".
Besides this one, I also grow T. triflora and T. brachiata on mount. T. triflora and T. smithii are doing well for me but I had had problem with T. brachata. I finally got a nice healthy cutting of T. brachiata this spring and I hope it will do better than my previous ones.
Thanks, Tom. I'll try mounting the T. brachiata that has been sitting doing nothing for over a year now. It was a rescue plant that isn't doing any better with me than it was without me.
"Reminds me of Berkeley in the '60's."
Yeah. Fringe and tie-dye. I remember some of that. There's a junk shop (that's what I call it, anyway) in Old Town between a favorite restaurant and a nearby bakery. They're always burning a couple hundred pounds of incense with the door open to the street. I get an acute episode of deja vu when I walk by to get desert at the bakery.
Far out, Tom.
very nice !
Don't forget "Power to the people."

lovely, I am intrested in this genus for long but when killed long time ago cut from brachiata never try again...
