Re: Lavender

When we first moved in here, we planted a ponytail palm we had carted from the far north country in the front yard and planted prostrate rosemary around the base. That was about 6 years ago; the rosemary is still going strong, albeit a tad unkempt. We also planted an erect cultivar in the front hedge. They flourished for 3 or 4 years until they were over-shadowed by major nearby shrubs.

Incidentally, the wild orchid that I glued to the ponytail's trunk seems to be adapting. It now has grown several roots that are firmly attached to the palm [actually, the ponytail's not a palm; it's a member of the lily tribe]. I had some fear that the glue I used, Goop [for marine applications], would kill the little bulblet, but it hasn't. Orchids must be tougher than I've given them credit for.

Nope. Rosemary either, no real down time.

Pam, do your plants go dormant?
