I was hoping you could add some pics and info on the ones you feel are very garden hardy.
I have tried to grow Tatoo and others that are finicky. I also lost a few new ones I put in last Fall. We had a terrible winter! I don't have a lot of shade and need some help on choosing good ones.

Thanks

I've had good luck growing Blue Mouse Ears, Squash Casserole, Brother Stefan, Pearl Lake, Sweet Home Chicago...actually it's probably easier to list the ones I've lost!

Stitch In Time, Tattoo (twice), Loyalist, Fire and Ice, White Feather Teeny Weeny Bikini...I'm sure I'll think of several more that I've lost over the years! I also have several of my minis that I'm nursing along. I've moved them to a new bed this year and they seem to be doing better, but time will tell.

Rose, I have had several minis but all that remain are Blue Mouse Ears. I would like to do a fairy garden dish. I am afraid that it would be to dry for them tho.

My all time favorite is Francee. It can take all day sun or shade, never wilts no matter how dry, and always looks so nice. Over the years , we have given away and sold so many pieces and it never falters. It will always be on the top of my list!!!

Just about anything, except maybe 'Blue Ivory' in the 'Halcyon'/'June' family is very garden hardy.
