Kevalsha's Plant List

A note from Kevalsha
I like to grow a variety of plants from trees to many ground-covers. I also grow annuals and vegetables. I always find places for more plants. Using containers for those that need protection from frost and are used as house plants is a good idea. Many climbing varieties grow on my trees including a vanilla orchid that grows on a camphor tree and is hanging in there for the past two winters. I try to create barriers that make protected areas for plants that would normally would not survive the elements in my area.

Shrubs
I purchased the bulbs for this plant at a garden center in Virginia. There were six in the package and now I have lots of plants. Most of them are growing in containers but I am going to find a place in the garden to grow them. Here in USDA zone 9 the bulbs can be left in the ground. They flower mid to late summer 90-120 days after planting. The flower stems can be clipped and brought inside for bouquets. The flowers are strongly fragrant without the fragrance being overwhelming.
