Re: Well, it's wet.....beautyberry

Nobody in my immediate area has it that I've seen.  In town (anywhere  in the 
Houston viscinity east of me) can grow this without ANY special attention  
whatsoever.  That's what makes it even more infuriating.   LOL   Just like the 
Azaleas.  Houston is well known for it's  Azalea trail, in the spring.  It's a 
garden/home tour put on by the posh  River Oaks Garden Club, of various 
member's homes.  The Azaleas are  effortless for them.  Out here, we are lucky if we 
can grow them at all,  much less have them to be lush and blooming.  
I was just rather surprised that Jim was able to grow it in his area,  
obviously their soil is more acidic than ours here.  Perhaps  it is the sandier 
soil....since soil above I-10 (actually the major Bayou) is  more sandy than we 
are here in the southern parts.  Perhaps that has  something to do with it also. 
 Who knows.  Such is life......win some  lose some.  HA!

If you  think the soil is the problem and
you want the beauty berry badly, have you  thought about filling a large
hole with special soil to see if the bush  could survive that way?  Does
anyone in your area have one  successfully growing?  If so, you might check
out the  conditions.  A quest for a plant...
