North Texas Tropical Flowers?
Being a flower lover and getting bonus points if it's fragrant, I'm considering buying a Sweet Olive Fudingzhu and a Maid of Orleans Jasmine Sambac from Logees. BUT living in north Texas, so not a tropical kind of place, I wonder if I'm dreaming about getting it to grow/bloom here. I have grown African Violets by putting them in self watering pots, and by putting them in clay pots placed inside a ceramic pot with no drain hole, then filling the ceramic pot with water which is absorbed by the clay pot. Will that work with tropicals as "humid"? I'm not even trying for outdoor planting, just in pots.
I posted this on the Texas Gardening Forum too but was pleasantly surprised to see this Tropicalesque forum too. Anyone in north Texas making it work for them?
