The 2016 Garden....

While the yr isn't over, enough has passed to give a good "clue" on the big items;>....
Fails:
Perfume Jasmine(Jasmine off). Did well last yr and got no frost damage but has slowly died back this yr to a 6" stub
English Lavender. Tried the methods found online to grow them in the Deep South but is pretty much dead. However, the Spanish Lavender is doing GREAT!
Hellebores. I'll pull them this Fall
Japanese Imperial Morning Glories. Think I planted them too late this yr 'cause normally they do great(though a common MG isn't blooming that much either so it may not be that...)
Abutilons. Not worth the space for the poor blossom production.
Torch Ginger(Etingleria?). Grow great but after 5 yrs of no blooms....
Dragonfruit. After 10 yrs without fruit and few blossoms I'm DONE with them!

Meh's(those that lived but didn't impress):
Salivia cocinna. Both White and Pink cultivars grow well and bloom but the display not worth the space taken.
4 O'clocks.
Pink Perfecktion Brugmansia.Deformed dbl blossoms

Winners:
Pentas. Both antique and modern hybrids.
Watsonia. good 1st yr. Hopefully, will do as well as the one's I had over at Hummingbird,esp since this cult is nicer!
Cypress Vine
Antique White Hibiscus
Dbl White Brugmansia
Spanish Lavender
Rosemary
Turmeric

Later in the yr I'll have the full report;>!
Cheers,
Pat

perhaps your zone or location in the world... might help this be more relate-able to others.

i cant grow any of those plants in my location.
