I'll start with the ID. I bought this 2 years ago end of summer without a tag. It barely came back last year and didn't flower.
Here it is wide angle, dead-center. Can't tell from this pic, but this and all of the sagos are flushing.
And another angle
First visible eucomis flower. I'm convinced this is a solid Z6 plant.
Agapanthus getting ready to bloom, another must have for Z6 gardeners.
My wimpy castor bean, with Pink China EE(another solidly hardy Z6 plant), some minors, etc...
Transplant Mekong Giant and Rob in TN's Confederate hibiscus. I dug the Mekong out of the old site because it did nothing. It sent up a million tiny pups, and the clump never got big, so I dug up the whole clump and separated it. Anybody want to trade for some Mekong Giant?
I love Jasmine, easy to dig and store
Ascelpias tuberosa still going strong, and the trachy behind it is recovering nicely from spear pull.
Doesn't look like much, but I was worried the little tiny Amorphallus Cognac's weren't coming back. They were the last plant to return, almost at the end of June. Fred in SC's hibiscus in the back.
I'm bad at seed. Fred was so kind to send me seed for this hibiscus, out of all the seeds, I have one viable plant. It didn't flower last year, but will this year.
There was a lot of interest about crocosmia, another solidly hardy Z6 plant. It is a beauty, neither the pics nor my camera do it justice.
Thanks for looking!
