What to take?

frostyboy(z8b Coastal Georgia)April 30, 2006

At the end of May my wife and son and I are moving from Cincinnati, OH to Richmond Hill, GA (just South of Savannah). The following is a list of plants that I'd like to take with me...so I'm looking for any advice as to what may be a good/bad idea to bring along. If it helps any, our new home will be about 8 miles away from the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks!


Hostas (various)

Clematis (various)

Coreopsis (moonbeam)


dahlias (various, from tubers)

Russian Sage


Perennial Phlox


English and Hybrid Tea roses

Humidity may be the big problem. Some Hostas do OK but others don't seem to like the heat and humidity. Pholox might be more inclined to get moldy. Daylilies will love it! Dahlias will need a little more shade during the hotest part of the day. Mums and daffodils will do great. The big difference is that you need to get the bulbs in during the fall. Bring all of it. The Hostas are the only things that I would worry about.

Asparagus is not as productive in the south and you may have quite a time with the roses, too. Astilbe will probably not be real happy, but I've seen it north of Savannah.

You will need to learn what you CAN grow! A great deal of new possibilites for you down there, once you get the knack of it.
