Re: Re: rohdea/ "houseplants" escapees!!

Hello Teresa,
    Marge has given you the scoop on Rohdea hardiness, and exposure. Good
luck on keeping your eyes open at the sale.
    There are quit a few house plants that have escaped to the garden. I
like the "Strawberry Begonia" (Saxifraga stolonifera). I remember my mother
having that one in a pot along with her pots of African violets. Does just
fine in the open garden where I have it combined with ostrich ferns, allium
molly. Some of the tropical gingers are being tested in the open garden that
I am aware of.
    Just plain bad assumptions about hardiness zones, old gardening
literature that the web is changing, global warming are all changing the way
we garden and what we grow in our gardens.
