Moving to Gadsden

madabouteu(8A - central Alabama)March 30, 2006

Hello - in June I will be moving to Gadsden, where I grew up. It has been over 20 years since I lived in the area and at that time was doing mostly vegetable gardening. This time I will be doing butterfly gardening as well, and would like recommendations about which flowers will do well there and will attract butterflies.

Do hollyhocks do OK there? Here in New Orleans they will not live.

lantana
salvia
zinnia
milkweed
goldenrod
jasmine
marigolds
purple coneflower
black-eyed susan (rudbeckia)
