Re: Ceres/bringing the yard inside

Good Lord. Well, all I can say is that I'm glad I live where I do. I love my
tropical look so I'm fortunate in that things like the Thunbergia, Duranta,
all my elephant ears, clerodendrum, gingers, crinums, cannas, dahlias,
crocosmia, etc will come back. They do die to the ground, (Thank goodness on
the Thunbergia or I wouldn't be able to get in the yard) but they all come
back faithfully. Tibouchina will actually overwinter too if it's in the
right spot. I have no right spots here, but at my old house it actually
stayed evergreen. It was planted on the fence and sheltered by a row of
pines. Please be careful and don't hurt yourself!

I'll be bringing in a lot of stuff, but not nearly that much. I need to get
started on cleaning out the greenhouse. It actually has a perennial morning
glory growing inside of it. What's that all about?
