Pollen

The spacings (the distance between the plants) recommended above should enable the plants of the same genera to cover the ground in 2-3 years.

"Carpobrotus edulis (Chrysanthemum edule) is a creeping, mat-forming succulent species.
Ice plants grow year round, with individual shoot segments growing more than 3 ft (1 m) per year. Ice plants can grow to at least 165 ft (50 m) in diameter. Flowering occurs almost year round, beginning in February in southern California and continuing through fall in northern California, with flowers present for at least a few months in any given population. Seed production is high, with hundreds of seeds produced in each fruit. Fruits are eaten by baboons, rodents, porcupines, antelopes, and people, who also disperse the seeds.
Carpobrotus edulis has naturalised in many other regions throughout the world, and is an invasive species in several parts, notably Australia, California and the Mediterranean, all of which have similar climates. In the early 1900s, Carpobrotus edulis was brought to California from South Africa to stabilize soil along railroad tracks. Despite its use as a soil stabilizer, it actually exacerbates and speeds up coastal erosion. It holds great masses of water in its leaves, and its roots are very shallow. In the rainy season, the added weight on unstable sandstone slopes and dunes increases the chances of slope collapse and landslides."

Although it provides nectar and pollen for honey bees, I am not recommending that this is grown in your garden.

Popweb is an Internet resource for information on the identification of plants and pollen, the present and past distribution of these plants and the ecosytems they are part of - including Corylus avellana above

The Uppsala University Pollen Catalogue contains colour images of many different species. Follow links within Popweb to view specific species, or browse the catalogue at:

"Burnt Ridge Nursery and Orchards is a family-owned farm, in business since 1980. Our 20-acre farm is located in the foothills of the Cascade mountains in America with a beautiful view of Mount St. Helens. Our mail order nursery specializes in unusual and disease resistant trees, vines, and shrubs that produce edible nuts or fruits. We also have a large selection of Northwest native plants and ornamental and useful landscape trees." who also sell Corylus avellana.

"Truffles

Southern Woods Nursery of New Zealand in conjunction with Southern Cross Truffle Nursery Ltd supplies Perigord black truffle, and Bianchetto truffle inoculated trees. The Perigord black truffle fruits in winter and is inoculated onto Holm Oak, Turkey Oak, Common or English Oak and sometimes Hazelnut seedlings.

WHAT IS A TRUFFLE?

Truffles are fungi that grow in and on the roots of specific trees, and have fruiting bodies that grow beneath the ground. Truffles of various kinds are found throughout Europe, Asia, America, Australia and Africa, but only a few species have any real commercial value.

The Perigord Black Truffle (Tuber melanosporum) occurs naturally under oak trees in winter in the limestone soils of central and southern France. They are considered the finest of edible fungi and have a place in gastronomy alongside saffron, caviar, and foie gras.

Since the times of Greeks and the Romans, truffles have been eaten as delicacies, aphrodisiacs, and medicines. Truffles are harvested in winter, using specially trained dogs. Handlers carefully dig out the truffle, which can be as much as 30cm below the surface."

It is worth remembering that especially with roses that the colour of the petals of the flower may change - The following photos are of Rosa 'Lincolnshire Poacher' which I took on the same day in R.V. Roger's Nursery Field:-

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!
