Moving from WI to FL
Can anyone chime in as to how these plants will fare in FL climate and what type of soil can I expect in the Tampa and surrounding area? Any caveats I need to be aware of? (Salty air being too close to the bay, etc.).
I love my Annabelle hydrangeas. I have her on the north side of my house without supplemental watering and what a beauty. She's also a beauty in the southeast corner of my home where she gets more sun, performs equally as well, but I have her on a daily watering system otherwise she wilts from midday sun. I would miss her! She's my favorite.
Seven son flower? (Aka heptacodium tree)
Rhodys and azaleas?
Honeysuckle vines? Lonicera semper...something if I remember correctly.
Pig squeak aka bergenia?
Ligularia, the rocket?
William Baffin rise bush and New Dawn climber?
Service berry tree/shrub?
Smoke bush? Grace and Golden Spirit.
Climbing hydrangea shrub
I'm assuming bulbs like daffodils need a cold period in the south.
Ok, so can you surprise me with what I CAN grown in FL that I can't grow here in the Midwest, perennial-wise.
