Biography · Tell Us About Yourself
I know a little about gardening but hoping to learn more from the forums on this website. The part of Texas I live in is hot and dry in the summer and cold with some snow/ice in the winter. So far, gardening has been a real challenge. This is a very small town with a library that doesn't have many books about gardening. The internet is my main source of information.

Tell Us About Your Garden · Do you have Raised Beds? Fountains?
Moved in this house 3 yrs ago. Just starting to add plants and flowers I like - primarily hearty hibiscus, zinnias, roses. House has cannas that were planted yrs ago, perennial asters that were planted 25 or more years ago (having problems with them), nandinas which I never liked but am learning to enjoy.
Tell Us About Your Plants · What plants, shrubs, and flowers do you like to grow?
I love to grow roses, portulaca (some call it moss rose - depends on where you live), banana trees, Moses in a boat, wandering Jew. Would like to know more about drought tolerant, full sun perennials or annuals. We do not have a local nursery - just Walmart and Tractor Supply. The nearest mid-size "city" is an hour away but their nursery is very expensive.
