|Finally have a chance to post the babies I got at Sandy's. I need your help to make sure I have labeled them properly and also want to know which need to be a) inside , b)covered outside or can be c) left out with no protection.|

|Here are the NOIDS. By the way, it was amazing how Sandy knew the Latin Name without looking at any tags|
Again, which do I have to protect?
OK I know that NOID 3 is pipevine, but do you think I should plant it or wait till spring?

I assume that I can leave Rose of Sharon outside in a pot?

|If you ever have a chance to visit Sandy's,you must!!! It is lush magical feast for the senses (and the brugs weren't even blooming) She has so many wonderful garden ornaments that compliment the plants and set the mood and is so knowledgable and generous!!!!|
and this doesn't even begin to represent her garden!

|Oh yes, this was the reason I went to Sandy's in the first place. Limelight salvia!|
I hope mine will be a lovely as Sandy's next year.

|Well, thanks for your kind word. It's always nice to have someone to visit my garden. I hope you'll come back again, anytime. It's different in the spring...more flowers and less jungle.|
I'm not sure about some of the plants being cold hardy in your zone. I would think you should give protection to all at least until they have rooted. Then #s 3,4, 6,9,10 and noid1 should be fine outside. The begonias should be kept from freezing no matter the zone. And the passion vine, I keep in a pot because I don't want it to escape like the incarnata did. I'll have to get an ID on it from Donna B who gave it to me. It's covered with fruit now...up and around the tuteur and down the little fenceline. I should have plenty seeds if yours doesn't make it.
We're putting up the greenhouses today. I sent an e-mail to the window guys and let them know that I was going to fill my patio with plants and getting to those windows would be a problem. They're going to try to replace just those 3 windows soon...but we'll have to wait on the others.

|Ofcourse they better work around your babies! I hope your husband was able to help with the greenhouse this year.|
I will go out and evaluate if I have enough room for all the tender plants or I need to rig up something.
Thanks for the quick reply.Did you know the name of NOID 2?

|Noid #2 is passion vine...not pipe vine... The pipe vine is the one that's "spotty looking." I haven't tried to propagate it from cuttings yet. Might try over the winter....|
Nov 7, 2010 6:29 PM CST
| Yes, it even says so!|
Is this pipevine?
Nov 7, 2010 7:04 PM CST
|Yep...but the leaves surrounding it in photo are Rangoon Creeper's.....confusing enough? I have three vines growing on that rain tank and intertwining ....until tomorrow...when they all get chopped back... I cut all the brugs back. Have buckets of cuttings. Let me know if you want to try some. Should be easy to root in water, then soil, over winter and have a head start by spring.|

|You are the temptress! I think I will work on these new plants. I have a slow learning curve. I know where to find you if I change my mind!|
BTW, let me know if you are ever in the metroplex. I have a few interesting plants too.

|Coooool! I'll remember that....|
