So I'll soon be making the huge move from zone 8 to 5 (I believe 5)
From my Wonderful Beachy Coastal NC Home to WV/PA Boarder!
Needless to say a huge change in landscaping is coming my way!
Any advice, input, suggestions on new plants-I am a cacti/succulent lover, amongst my tropicals...
But Zone suiting, some nice, possibly odd-I don't mind extra care Plants-I'd really appreciate any words of wisdom from fellow garden lovers!

South for us in New England. What zone will you be in. As an iris fan, I could suggest both bearded & Siberian irises. The Siberians like acid soil, so you would have to find out what your soil is like for them.

I think most people will bring in the tropicals; cacti for the winter. Your local garden clubs could help you.

Welcome! Banana! My guess is z6

All my tropicals come in in October, cannas get dug and stored and this year I am going to try saving some of my begonia bulbs.
Not much help from me on perennials I'm more an annual gal nodding
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
