Re: Well, today.../ Midwest Gardening


Kitty,
        I think they carry them because they buy in bulk rates..send them
all over the country...and people buy them without reading the labels. We
have that problem here in Colorado with Hibiscus nova-sinensis(?). They see
evergreen but do not see hardy to 20 degrees and plant them outside and
wonder why they do not retyrn the next year.
    Now my mother-in-law had a beautiful crepe myrtle growning on ths east
side of her home in Rockville Indiana zone 5 and it had surivived at least
one mild winter. Now that east side microclimate may never freeze in winter
so the roots probably survived and shot all new growth last year. When I saw
it in late Sept. it was 3 feet high and blooming like crazy.
