Heat and Droughts may have a benefit after all.

I guess I am reevaluating my South Central Texas weather after seeing post after post about fighting too much water. I use my big celadines (24 gal pots) around the yard to help shield other "full sun" plants that can't hack it. They have been in constant bloom since early May with masses of flowers and big green leaves.

They are great. Never had bug problems, nothing eats them, perfumes the whole yard, the more sun the better. Just starting to ponder when big becomes too big.

I'm anxious to plant mine in the ground, it's very hot and dry here too in the summer, but the summer can be cold and wet. How cold/wet does it get in your area?

RE: Heat and Droughts may have a benefit after all.

I'm In San Antonio. Winters are generally dry and mild. Spring and fall have more storms. We get a few cold snaps but have ample warning to prepare.

I just dont trust the crummy clay soil we have here to plant in the ground. I will make room in our next home for a raised bed with my own sandy soil mix for in ground planting.
