RE: In your Garden

I have Hibiscus, Roses, Clematis, Crepe Myrtles, Coleus, Mandavella, Begonia and Caladiums. Some of them are getting a bit tired looking and need a drink every day. sDogwood

RE: In your Garden

Hoo, listing everything in my garden would take a book! I have some hardy hibiscus, iochroma (a member of the same family as angel trumpets, brugs, which I also have, but without a common name I think) a dozen or so different alocasias, colocasias, xanthosomas (elephant ears) a lot of different begonias (I like to collect things, and seldom have more than one of anything!) hmm--different gesneriads. I've been collecting hardy ones lately, and have a number of sinningias and a seemannia (formerly gloxinia) that are doing quite well. And other stuff too--quite a number of things seem to like this weather better than I do at the moment, tho' having them do so well helps me too!

RE: In your Garden

I have Eleanor Tabor indian hawthorne and Pleasant White and Renee Michelle azaleas as foundation plants. Plenty of lantana, a sweet olive shrub, juniper, mexican petunias, and a hydrangea balance out the rest of the front beds. In the back I have plenty of azaleas, more lantana, gazania, hosta, irises, daylilies, and another hydrangea. A few grasses like blue fescue and three large "cabbage" palms.

RE: In your Garden

I have a few in my garden, I'm a newbie. I have elephant ears, dahlia, bearded iris, gladiolus, and looking for some plants to plant for the fall. Any suggestions?
