Hi Lynda,

Sometimes I get the gobbledygook and sometimes it actually works and my picture appears. Probably a software glitch.

Hey everyone "Batten down the hatches" rain,wind and cold for the next week. You can feel it already. Maybe all the leaves on the big leaf maples and cotton woods will come down at once. Take all tender plants in NOW, it's time to snuggle under a quilt with a good book.

Thanks for the tip, Diane...I'll look that cranesbill up. I planted a beautiful G. pratense called 'Midnight Reiter'...deep purple leaves that is semi-dwarf with large dark lilac flowers. But it just sits there! What's that saying? First year sleeps, second year creeps, third year leaps. I want it to leap the first year!

Whoever started this group: can we get a nice pic up instead of the 3 resident brown silhouettes?

Hi Lynda, I have so many varieties of Cranesbill Geranium it is hard to pick out a favorite but if pressed it would be G.dalmaticum or Dalmatian Cranesbill Geranium which is evergreen and the leaves turn orange/red in the fall. the flowers are small, mauve to pink. I also have a favorite white with red stripes. blood-red and of course all of the lavenders,pinks etc. Several years ago I discovered them and made it a point to collect a lot of them, they all do well here and make a neat ground cover or border plant.

Has anyone successfully wintered over purple fountain grass? I have some perennial pfg that does well, but the annual is so beautiful! I wondered if I dug it and
brought it inside, it would keep for next year (they're spendy!)????

Diane, what variety hard geranium do you grow? And which is your favorite and why?
Comment by Jean Young on November 2, 2009 at 5:11pm
Thanks for the advice. The dead looking plants are for sure an eye sore.
Comment by Diane Meyers zone 6/7 Or. on November 2, 2009 at 5:05pm
Jean, I cut mine to the ground when they die back just to not have dead looking plants around, in the spring they will green up beautifully. Mine flower well into the first hard freeze and last year they even peaked through a light snow.
