Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Color Combinations

Note to myself: I saw a beautiful color combination in a nicely landscaped yard yesterday. It consisted of: crinum lily, oyster plants, purple lantana and a white plumbago.

Sounds like a really pretty picture. Someone gave me some oyster plant and I love the deep burgandy.. but I also read that they are highly invasive. What's your opinion? nurture or toss?

linda...You're right, they are invasive. My neighbor has them and he's good at keeping them in check, but I hate to throw plants out. I have resisted planting them to this point because I know I'll eventually get tired of them outgrowing their bounds. I like plants that respect their neighbor's space:-)
