Re: Peonies for the South

Criminy - we haven't had 16" yet this year!! Makes me crazy. Just FYI -
I plant most of my lavenders in chimney flue liners which look like
terra cotta but are way thicker and tougher. Anything that can stand the
temperature extremes in a chimney - can live outside in the yard w/ no
problem. And drainage is never a problem, even that one time we did get
enough rain to make my back yard look like the Carribean. And they're
nice looking too, Jesse can attest to that...
