|Here is the list of plants I have growing in my yard or as houseplants. Some of these are weeds are other plants which just happen to find my yard. :)
Here is the master list:
|Wow, that's a lot of plants! |
I don't have a list of what I'm growing in my little gardens -- sometimes it takes me a couple of weeks in the spring to realize that that weird looking weed in the corner is something I've had for years. I just assume that more plants than not will grow in this area!
One of the more unusual plants I grow is agapanthus. Not a particularly hardy variety, this was simply a florists' plant my mother gave me four years ago. But it's come up reliably every year for the past three seasons in Central Ohio. It's planted against a south-facing brick wall with excellent drainage, and apparently doesn't realize it's not in zone 8+ anymore!
One of my mother's more spectacular plants is a 15 year old calamondin orange that arrived as a little "get-well" houseplant. It spends the winter on the unheated glassed in back porch in Cincinnati, and now stands over 6' tall in the pot, and is nearly 4' around. It always has flowers and fruit on it, and we've picked 200 ripe fruits at one time.
|Wow, those aren't normally zone hardy. You are lucky. The Calla Lilies of my friends in Dayton came back. I may try that experiment myself. I have some Canna on a south wall and I want to see if it comes back. :) I have two cedars. I have one I planted last year that pulled through no problem and one I planted this summer. I have lost three in the past years. It is a fun experiment. :)|
|mark me down for another WOW on that list! |
i just recently started gardening here out in the yard. so far i've grown... tomatoes, bush beans, lima beans, eggplants, turnips, radishes, bananna peppers, random salsa peppers, brussel sprouts, sugar snap peas, carrots, lettuce, spinach, celery, beets...
this spring i'll put all that in and i'm going to throw down 2 varieties of corn and blackeyed peas. the lettuce, spinach, turnips and celery (and one pepper plant should be alive and kicking all winter in the cold boxes i built.
for about 9 years indoors i've had a spider plant growing in the kitchen window along with a vine i have no clue what it is that is about 20 feet long now! wish i'd gotten into the gardening a long time ago, woulda kept me out of trouble in my younger days.
I am new to the Ohio Valley Form, I would just say WOW also
I grow what most people in zone 6B don't grow, Brugmansia's along with perrenials. once you smell the fragrance of the Brugmansia's you are hooked
