Things here are finally showing signs of summer to come.

2 different cupheas I got from Dave67 at last October's RU. They loved the winter and didn't suffer at all with the freezes

Florida Gardenia took a big hit. Naked to the base. Had to cut back a lot of dead wood.

Rolling on the floor laughing I've had it for years and never had a problem. We all know many of the dangers list are over dramatized. Look at people who won't grow brugs & castor beans, jatropha, etc due to the warnings. I raised my kid and both dogs and cats with them and no problems . Sometimes you just have to be more aware of where you put them. My dogs don't eat my plants except for the occasional grass but some dogs do so people could just plant things where they don't have access like the front yard if they are in the back yard. My coleus canina is in the bed by the front door and I have seen the cats lay on the sidewalk next to it but they don't walk through it.
