Happy New Year, everyone!! Let’s start off the year with an exciting post from ROMANIA! Straight from the source: “Hallo! Hallo! My name is Tony Todorut. The pictures were taken in Timisoara, Romania, in the “back yard” of my company, where there are 1000 sq. m filled with fruit trees, ornamental trees, perennials, a fish pond, vegetables and a few… tropicals. Almost every extra minute I have is spent here, either working like crazy, visiting every plant, or sitting, watching the results of this very hard work. But not the work is my biggest problem; is the fight between the plant collector and the gardener. I can’t resist of searching and buying more new plants. Most of them end up in a special place, waiting for the new projects arrangements, in process, already. Try to imagine the problems I have with the tropicals in this zone 6. I’m joking with my friends: soon I’ll become a specimen of the man from Neanderthal, since I work in dirt and move around on my knees, four legs; all I need is the bear! But, I love my garden, my plants! Happy holidays to all garden enthusiasts from all over the world!! By the way: I’m 57 and the garden 5.” Two international posts within a week? I’m in heaven! Tony, your garden does look tropical, and so beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing.

    What a beautiful oasis you've created-- thank you for sharing it with us!

    Tony, Your hard work has paid off with a spectacular garden! You have created some beautiful garden spaces and obviously share your love of gardening with all your friends at work. They must enjoy taking some time in your gardens, too!

    Beautiful indeed. I do appreciate the trials and tribulations you go through growing tropicals in zone 6. I go under the same trials here in zone 5 Canada. Some of them work and some don't. We learn through experimentation. You have been very successful. Have you tried any tropical hibiscus? I've been experimenting with them lately.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Tony, you have been an impressively productive guy over the past 5 years. You are definitely a doer! What is that stunningly vibrant gold and red ruffly edged flower...boy, is it an eyecatcher!

    How wise of your company to provide such an oasis for the employees' benefit. I'm sure you are not the only one who
    enjoys it. The ruffled red and yellow flower (orchid family?) is new to me, but what fun for you to see it thriving!

  7. pattyspencer 01/01/2013

    Beautiful garden - your work has certainly paid off. I too want to know what the beautiful orange flower is - it's stunning! Thank you for sharing!!

  8. peonylover 01/01/2013

    Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

    Tony, I am anxiously awaiting the answer to what the beautiful gold and red flower is. The leaves look almost fern-like. I love your gardens. They made my day!!! Is the dog yours or a company mascot? I, like you, find it impossible to resist a new plant, even when not knowing where it is going. You have done a wonderful job, and everything blends together nicely. I like the different types. The hydrangea next to the spruce is nice, and the plant behind the spruce (not sure what it is) that is almost the same color as the spruce looks great. Thank you so much for sharing. Your garden pictures made a gray, snow covered day in Michigan brighter.

    Tony, what a beautiful garden you've created! I think we're all torn between the collector and the designer as we create our gardens. However, you've achieved a wonderful balance between the two!

  11. tony_timisoara 01/01/2013

    Thank you very much for your comments. The orange and yellow flowers are Dwarf Red Poinciana (Caesalpinia Pulcherimma), the gray silver leafed behind spruce is Artemisia Silver Brocade. I love the tropical hibiscuses, I have 5 different ones. Best doing for me is Torino (orange) and Salmon el Capitolio.
    The dog is my mascot.

    Tony, your garden looks very well cared for, thank you for sharing.

    It is always so nice to see gardens from around the world. Thank you. I especially enjoyed the vignette by the bridge and the cute dog.

  14. plant_lady_55 01/02/2013

    Thank you, Tony, for the name of the gold and red flower. It is a must have, and I will be on a hunt for it. I have several tropical hibiscus, too, and I bring them in the house each winter. They are older now and getting quite large. What do you do with your tropical hibiscus in the winter? I will have to check out Torino. I like anything orange.

  15. tony_timisoara 01/03/2013

    Over the winter, I store the tropical hibiscuses next to a big glass wall, east oriented, I water them every 3 days and once in two weeks I fertilize them. The flowers are smaller and not as many as in summer, when they do not like direct mid day sun and they like a lot of water. Lately I had a great experience with Tabebuia Heptaphilla(Pink Trumpet tree) and Tabebuia Crysothricha (Yellow Trompet Tree). Right now the pink one, in its second year, is fully covered with beautiful tropical flowers.I can send pictures. By the way,the Dwarf Poinciana likes full hot sun; it germinates well from seeds to.
