    • Southern Judi begonias.... Escargot Begonia - BEAUTIFUL! I always forget about this one. Looks like it gets bigger planted directly into the garden rather than a pot.

      Begonia 'Escargot' looks great planted in part shade garden. Works well as a houseplant too. (Tropical plant...not cold hardy)

    Polyanthus primrose - these are gorgeous!

    They don't call this 'cast iron plant' for nothing! Tough foliage plant that thrives even in deep shade…broad strappy evergreen leaves to 2' tall and 5" wide are dramatically frosted white from mid leaf to the tips. Slowly spreads eventually forming a dense clump.


    In early spring, when hostas are coming up, mix 10 parts water to 1 part ammonia, and pour over plant and soil. This will kill the 60,000 eggs each slug lays per year - Yuck! When the plants are grown, you can continue to put some of this mix in the ground, or spray directly onto slugs

    Plant some ornamental Kochia Scoparia grass. It’s a hardy and drought-tolerant foliage plant that germinates super fast. They start out green but turn a pretty red color once it starts to get colder.
