Great collection. Looks like you went to a swap! I had Prairie Pilosa in one part of my yard and Prairie Phlox in another. The color was a bit different and I had got them at different times...but I think they are the same plant

Thanks Anna! Have the prairie phlox thrived in your yard? I'm thinking of putting mine in dappled shade with the cedar sage and the penstemon Thumbs up

My phlox grows well in partshade. I even have it in mostly sun. My cedar sage is in full shade and I don't know how much sun it can take.The phlox and pentensom would grow well together.

Wow I didn't know the phlox would grow in mostly sun? I have 3 large cedar trees that nothing seems to grow under besides cast iron plants, liriope, and English ivy Hilarious! I'm glad I'll be adding something colorful to my shade garden. I planted some more penstemon seeds this morning so I can have more plants.

I went out to look at cedar sage and there is phlox pilosa growing there too!
Shade is a challenge. Have you tried strawberry begonia:saxifraga stonoifera Strawberry Begonia (Saxifraga stolonifera)
It is one of my favorites for deep shade.

Wow I can't wait to plant mine in the ground. That will be a pretty combination. I've heard of strawberry begonia but I've never seen them in Lowe's or Home Depot. I really like the leaves, they really stand out. Thumbs up

A lot of them closed around here, but someone told me to go to Shades of Green in Frisco. I'll probably take a trip out there one day because they sell a lot of native plants.

Here's a picture of my strawberry begonia. It's just starting to bloom, though the blooms aren't very showy. I planted this area last April, with 3 small plants. It's right off my north facing patio and gets only a little sun in the very late afternoon.

@Cameron, except for one small euphoribia "tree" I have been able to hold back on Spring Fever and getting new plants. I am sure I will weaken eventually.

LOVE your strawberry begonia, @Sondra. I tried to grow that outdoors. Silly me! It froze back and never returned. I'll have to try again.

We had some frost yesterday morning but thankfully it didn't damage my plants. I think a seedling was killed but that was the only casualty. I was about to put more plants outside but something told me we would have a surprise frost despite having a mild winter. I've been starting a few plants from seeds too. Thumbs up

When is it safe to put out the plumeria? I have a little "tree" sitting in the garage

@anna Put out your plumeria when the lows are consistently above 50º. We had a slight cold snap last Sunday night. Supposedly got down to 38º? I put the small young trees back into the greenhouse but left the trees larger than 4 feet tall outside. They did okay. Either it did not get down that low, or it didn't stay down there. Either way, I am glad there was no damage.

I'm glad I didn't have my houseplants outside. We had a bad hailstorm that destroyed a few plants punctured holes in the siding of my home, and broke windows and uprooted a tree in my neighbor's yard. Surprisingly my new plants weren't damaged thanks to the cedar trees bearing the brunt of the hail and wind. A lot of trees were defoliated too. Thumbs down

Glad you are okay

I agree. I was so upset because I lost my clematis, my iris buds we're destroyed too. The trees around here are nearly bare.
